No. 3 - Song - Marquis - "A Perfect Wife."

MIDI File

Marquis: If summer skies were always blue
And ev'ry day the sun were shining,
D'you realize that I and you
For April show'rs would soon be pining?
If ne'er a wind should softly stir
The ocean's placid ebb and flowing,
I think you'd find we'd much prefer
A hurricane to start a-blowing.
For you'll agree there's nothing worse
Than dull monotony in life;
And it must be a perfect curse
To wed a really perfect wife.
   
  Were ev'ry flow'r an orchid rare
That critics overwhelm with praises,
There'd come an hour when, I declare,
We'd long to pick a bunch of daisies.
Were ev'ry meal a banquet fine
That set all epicures a-flutter,
Then we should feel our tastes incline
To simple bread and cheese and butter.
For man, you see, is most perverse,
He wants variety in life;
So it must be a perfect curse
To wed a really perfect wife.
