MIDI File

Harry: Supposing things look black in town,
And you feel rather blue,
Suppose you feel a bit run down,
And don't know what to do;
Then what you want to buck you up
Is lively girls and boys,
So ask them out to dine and sup,
And make a grand old noise.
We'll have a rousing, roaring time,
And we'll paint the town so red,
That the Empire chucker-out
Will find all his work cut out
To distinguish heels from head;
From eight-o'clock till closing time
We will plentifully prime,
You make no error,
We'll be a terror,
Yoicks! for a high old time.
Chorus: We'll have a rousing, roaring time,
And we'll paint the town so red,
That the Empire chucker-out
Will find all his work cut out
To distinguish heels from head;
From eight-o'clock till closing time
We will plentifully prime,
You make no error,
We'll be a terror,
Yoicks! for a high old time.
   
Harry: We'll steal some hansoms if we catch
The driver unawares,
And have a sporting trotting match
All round the West End Squares;
And lamps and knockers that we see
We'll smash or wrench them all,
At finish up at half-past-three
At Covent Garden Ball;
We'll have a rousing, roaring time,
And we'll paint the town so red,
That soon ev'rybody must
See at once we're upper crust,
And exceedingly well bred;
Up all the lamp-posts we will climb,
And descend with grace sublime;
Gaily adorning
Bow Street next morning,
Yoicks! what a high old time.
Chorus: We'll have a rousing, roaring time,
And we'll paint the town so red,

See at once we're upper crust,
And exceedingly well bred;
Up all the lamp-posts we will climb,
And descend with grace sublime;
Gaily adorning
Bow Street next morning,
Yoicks! what a high old time.
