No. 2 - Song - Soo Soo and Chorus

MIDI File

Soo Soo: In the days of the ancient long ago
In a quaint little Chinese town,
All the maidens wept and never slept
For the men were shy and pass'd them by
with a cold and a careless frown.
At last once day the fair Princess
(Who shar'd her fellow maids' distress)
Conceived a most astute device;
She sought the god of love's advice.
He heard her through as sages do
Then gave a talisman.
'Twas what she sought, tho' it was nought
But a little paper fan.
And she pitter patter'd out
Where the fellows stood about,
And she gave them a playful leer,
With an "Oh-i-o" and a "Peep-a-bo,"
"I see you standing there."
And they woke up from their nap,
And they fell into the trap,
And she caught the very man
Who thought her cheap
Till she play'd "Bo-peep"
Behind a paper fan, fan, fan,
Behind a paper fan.
Chorus: And she pitter patter'd out
Where the fellows stood about,
And she gave them a playful leer,
With an "Oh-i-o" and a "Peep-a-bo,"
"I see you standing there."
And they woke up from their nap,
And they fell into the trap,
And she caught the very man
Who thought her cheap
Till she play'd "Bo-peep"
Behind a paper fan, fan, fan,
Behind a paper fan.
   
Soo Soo: When the maidens heard of the cute Princess
In that quaint little Chinese town,
They set to work with an artful smirk,
On a paper fan, and they caught a man;
And they soon all were settl'd down.
And soon the news was spread with glee
To far off lands across the sea,
And now today each maid on earth
Well knows their value and their worth.
So all of you who fain would woo,
But can't attract a man,
You'll still succeed, and all you need
Is a little paper fan.
And you'll pitter patter out
Where the fellows stand out,
And you'll give them a playful leer,
With an "Oh-i-o" and a "Peep-a-bo,"
"I see you standing there."
And they're woke up from their nap,
And they fall into the trap,
And you'll catch the very man
who thought you cheap
Till you play'd "Bo-peep"
Behind a paper fan, fan, fan,
Behind a paper fan.
Chorus: And she pitter patter'd out
Where the fellows stood about,
And she gave them a playful leer,
With an "Oh-i-o" and a "Peep-a-bo,"
"I see you standing there."
And they woke up from their nap,
And they fell into the trap,
And she caught the very man
Who thought her cheap
Till she play'd "Bo-peep"
Behind a paper fan, fan, fan,
Behind a paper fan.
