No. 11 - Song - Soo Soo and Chorus

MIDI File

Soo Soo: Dolly was a baby
Just as others may be,
With a pair of eyes of blue;
Looking like her father,
Like her mother, rather,
Just as other babies do.
She'd her aunty's tint of rose
And her uncle's classic nose,
But her special merit
She did not inherit,
It was, what do you suppose?
She'd a dainty darling dimple on her chin.
Chorus: Chin, chin,
Soo Soo: And so ev'ryone to love her did begin;
Chorus: gin, gin,
Soo Soo: Her eyes were bright and blue
And her lips of rosy hue
But her beauty mark was simple,
'Twas a dainty darling dimple,
Such a dainty darling dimple on her chin.
Chorus: Chin, chin,
Soo Soo: Such a dainty darling dimple on her chin, chin, chin.
Chorus: She'd a dainty darling dimple on her chin.
Soo Soo: Chin, chin,
Chorus: And so ev'ryone to love her did begin;
Soo Soo: gin, gin,
Chorus: Her eyes were bright and blue
And her lips of rosy hue
Such a dainty darling dimple on her chin, chin, chin.
   
Soo Soo: Dolly now is grown up.
Parents have to own up,
She's no longer now a child,
Dainty, tall and slender,
All the other gender
Surrender'd to her when she smil'd.
And their love they would confess,
But without the least success.
Reason unexpected
Why they're so affected,
Well, now, can't you make a guess?
They were tempted by the dimple on her chin.
Chorus: Chin, chin,
Soo Soo: It was that that gather'd all the fellows in;
Chorus: in, in,
Soo Soo: For it seem'd to promise "Yes!"
While it lured them to distress
For the maid was not so simple,
She'd a captivating dimple,
A most captivating dimple on her chin.
Chorus: Chin, chin,
Soo Soo: A most captivating dimple on her chin, chin, chin.
Chorus: They were tempted by the dimple on her chin.
Soo Soo: Chin, chin,
Chorus: It was that that gather'd all the fellows in;
Soo Soo: in, in,
Chorus: For it seem'd to promise "Yes!"
While it lured them to distress,
A most captivating dimple on her chin, chin, chin.
   
Soo Soo: Offers she had plenty,
Nineteen, p'raps, or twenty
Manly bosoms vow'd to burst;
Twenty hearts lay wilted
When the lot she jilted
In favour of the twenty-first.
Tears enough to fill the Nile
Fell as she walked up the aisle;
Afterwards she dried 'em,
For she satisfied 'em.
How, well, wait a little while,
She has daughters now with dimples on their chins.
Chorus: Chins, chins,
Soo Soo: All as like her as a row of little pins,
Chorus: pins, pins,
Soo Soo: And nineteen dejected men
Are all happy once again,
And the explanation's simple,
Each has won a little dimple,
Yes, a darling with a dimple on her chin.
Chorus: Chin, chin,
Soo Soo: Yes, a darling with a dimple on her chin, chin, chin.
Chorus: She has daughters now with dimples on their chins.
Soo Soo: Chins, chins,
Chorus: All as like her as a row of little pins,
Soo Soo: pins, pins,
Chorus: And nineteen dejected men
Are all happy once again,
With a darling with a dimple on her chin, chin, chin.
