MIDI File

Alice: When we were children, I and you,
Of course you recollect.
Lionel: Of course I recollect.
Alice: We played about the whole day through,
And talked of things we meant to do
If nurse did not object.
Lionel: The course of Love ran smooth, you see,
No troubles came to try it,
But I was shy as shy could be,
I fancy you proposed to me,
Ah yes! you can't deny it.
Alice: When you and I
Lionel: Were girl and boy
Alice: Those golden days
Lionel: We did enjoy.
Alice: Although I fear the scheme we planned
We never could achieve.
Both: The world was full of sunshine then
When I/you was/were nine and you/I were/was ten.
We lived within a happy land,
The land of Make Believe.
   
Alice: I said that I would be your bride
Ere many days were gone.
Lionel: Ere many days were gone.
Alice: And I was fully satisfied
Nor wondered how we should provide
Enough to live upon.
Lionel: For sober facts we didn't care,
We thought ourselves too clever.
I fancy that we meant to share
A furnished castle in the air,
And pay no rent whatever.
Alice: When you and I
Lionel: Were girl and boy
Alice: Those golden days
Lionel: We did enjoy.
Alice: Although I fear the scheme we planned
We never could achieve.
Both: The world was full of sunshine then
When I/you was/were nine and you/I were/was ten.
We lived within a happy land,
The land of Make Believe.
The land of Make Believe,
The land of Make Believe.
