MIDI File

Alice: I know that I've been naughty all my life.
My conduct's most provoking, I'm afraid.
I've worried people rather
And I've disobey'd my father,
And in fact I've been a wilful little maid.
But now that I'm about to be a wife
I'll always do exactly as I'm told.
Just fancy the sensations
of my friends and my relations
When they find out that I'm twice as good as gold.
Oh, so good! So very, very good!
There's room for some improvement, you'll allow.
I've been naughty in the past,
But I've changed my mind at last,
And I mean to be a good girl now,
Yes, I mean to be a good girl now,
Yes, a very, very good girl now.
   
  So when before the altar I am led,
With half a dozen bridesmaids and bouquets,
Then once for all I try to
Be sedate, and say good-bye to
all the mischief that I've plann'd in former days.
For I shall think of other things instead.
My husband such a lucky man will be.
I'll always be attending
to the cooking or the mending,
Oh, I'll make a model wife as you shall see.
I'll be good! So very, very good!
There's room for some improvement, you'll allow.
I've been naughty in the past,
But I've changed my mind at last,
And I mean to be a good girl now,
Yes, I mean to be a good girl now,
Yes, a very, very good girl now.
Chorus: Oh, so good! So very, very good!
There's room for some improvement, we'll allow, we'll allow.
Alice: I've been naughty in the past,
But I've changed my mind at last,
And I mean...
Ensemble:  Yes, she means to be a good girl now, a good girl now,
She means to be a good girl now.
