MIDI File

Marquis: Oh, living in a cottage has advantages no doubt,
Although it may be small,
It's cosy after all.
Josephine: I never did like rooms with too much furniture about,
I always think it must
Collect a lot of dust.
Marquis: Now here we have a table, a foot-stool and a chair,
Josephine: We're really very lucky, I declare.
Marquis: Isn't it fortunate
We'll have no servants,
They are such a nuisance and a bore.
Josephine: Isn't it fortunate
We'll have no callers
A rapping and a tapping at the door.
Marquis: All alone, a Darby and a Joan,
From lots of little worries we'll be free;
Both: Isn't it fortunate, extremely fortunate
That your tastes and my tastes
Should so thoroughly agree.
   
Marquis: We needn't be particular to mind our P's and Q's
Or change our costumes, say,
Well, three times ev'ry day.
Josephine: Then we can always have our meals at any time we choose
And not sit down in state
To dine off silver plate.
Marquis: A long and formal dinner I thoroughly detest,
Josephine: Yes, simple food no doubt is much the best.
Marquis: Isn't it fortunate
That we're so humble,
We shan't have to entertain, of course.
Josephine: Isn't it fortunate
We've got no stable
And can't even keep a single horse.
Marquis: Walking miles and climbing over stiles
Is splendid exercise for you and me.
Both: Isn't it fortunate, extremely fortunate
That your tastes and my tastes
Should so thoroughly agree.
Isn't it fortunate, extremely fortunate
That your taste and my taste
Should so thoroughly agree.
