No. 12 - Song - Mr. Pineapple - "That Happy Land."

MIDI File

Mr. Pineapple: I dreamed a dream the other night,
I thought that I had flown
Into a land where all was bright,
And troubles were unknown.
And man was lord and master there,
And held the upper hand,
And woman was a small affair,
Throughout that happy land,
that happy land,
In that happy, happy land.
   
  It was a truly happy land
I pictured in my dreams,
Each household was a model, and
Each husband reign'd supreme.
There wives ne'er raised a noisy din
But wore a smile so bland,
They lived to serve their husbands in
This truly happy land,
that happy land,
In that happy, happy land.
   
  It was a land that knew no care,
A truly happy spot;
And how I longed to linger there
And share their joyous lot.
For there each woman tried to please
The folks on ev'ry hand,
A state of things one never sees
Outside that happy land,
that happy land,
In that happy, happy land.
