MIDI File

Marie Pineapple: Three months ago we stepp'd aboard a great big ocean ship,
Mr. Pineapple: And sail'd away to China on a little pleasure trip;
Marie: The sailors knew I was a bride, which shows how cute they are,
Pineapple: I felt that I could brain them when they said "He's her papa."
Marie: And ev'ry day upon the deck I'd promenading go,
Pineapple: Whilst I was in my cabin with the steward down below.
Marie: It was a most delightful time, which passed away too soon,
Pineapple: But this is but the prelude to a Chinese Honeymoon.
All: A Chinese Honeymoon.
Pineapple: And I am the bridegroom,
Marie: I am the bride,
Bridesmaids: And we are the maids who saw them tied,
Pineapple: I said "I will,"
Marie: I took the quill
And felt that I should swoon,
Pineapple: Yes, I am the man who bought the ring
Marie: And I am the blushing little thing
Who became his wife
Pineapple: And started life
All: With a Chinese Honeymoon.
   
Marie: And now at last in China we have landed safe and sound
Pineapple: Where we will spend a month or two in trotting all around;
Marie: And here in fair Ylang Ylang we mean to spend a week
Pineapple: Where all the ladies, I am told, Are gloriously unique.
Marie: You promised you would never look at anyone but me.
Pineapple: Nor will I, dear, for I detest the almond eyed Chinee.
Marie: Like turtle doves the whole day long we'll bill, and coo, and spoon,
Pineapple: And so enjoy the raptures of a Chinese Honeymoon.
All: A Chinese Honeymoon.
Pineapple: And I am the bridegroom,
Marie: I am the bride,
Bridesmaids: And we are the maids who saw them tied,
Pineapple: I said "I will,"
Marie: I took the quill
And felt that I should swoon,
Pineapple: Yes, I am the man who bought the ring
Marie: And I am the blushing little thing
Who became his wife
Pineapple: And started life
All: With a Chinese Honeymoon.
