MIDI File

Reginald: If you go where duty calls,
For a station at St. Paul's —
Anita: Will it take a weary while?
Reginald: Only half an hour a mile!
You'll arrive in proper time
At a neighbourhood sublime
Where I used to live with father and with mother!
Anita: Is the climate very hot?
Reginald: As a gen'ral rule it's not!
Anita: Is the sunshine bright and clear?
Reginald: Half a dozen times a year!
Anita: Do the mighty mountains rise
Till they melt into the skies?
Reginald: Now you're getting too poetic, ask another!
Both: When the little sparrows utter
Their melodious happy trill,
Oh! it's sweet as Danish butter
On the slopes of Denmark Hill!
When your girl is on the flutter,
With a feather and a frill —
Oh! it's sweet as Danish butter
On the slopes of Denmark Hill!
Oh! it's sweet as Danish butter
On the slopes of Denmark Hill!
   
Anita: But in winter is it nice
When the water turns to ice?
Reginald: Well, you'll find the ice abates
When you've bought a pair of skates.
Anita: But it freezes hard at first
Till your water pipes are burst,
And the waterfalls come down your stairs and wreck 'em.
Oh, I love a waterfall!
Reginald: But it's awkward in the hall!
Anita: Are there fogs in London town?
Reginald: We have yellow, black and brown.
Anita: Can you get back home again?
Reginald: Well, I started in the train
But I spent the night at Loughborough or Peckham!
Both: When the fog is thick as cotton
And the rain in pretty chill,
Oh! there's something rather rotten
In the state of Denmark Hill!
When the lodger has forgotten
To pay up his weekly bill
Oh! there's something very rotten
In the state of Denmark Hill!
Oh! there's something very rotten
In the state of Denmark Hill!
