No. 23 - Song - Bobinot and Girls - "Do you know?"

MIDI File

Bobinot: My mind seems a bit of a blank,
I'm puzzled about my identity.
Oh, am I a person of rank?
Or am I a simple nonentity?
What was I last night or what am I today?
It's rather a difficult matter to say.
Do you know? Do you know?
If any of you do know,
I wish that you'd make some reply.
My position at present I can't understand,
Am I somebody humble or somebody grand?
Am I one of the mob or a lord of the land?
Do you know?
Girls: Of course not!
Bobinot: Neither do I.
Girls: Do you know? Do you know?
We fancy very few know,
So how can we make a reply?
Bobinot: I'm no more a Marquis
But what next shall I be? Do you know?
Girls: Of course not!
Bobinot: Neither do I.
   
Bobinot: It's always a puzzle to me
Why girls, for some reason inscrutable,
When choosing their bridegrooms to be,
Select men who seem most unsuitable.
Why is it though yearnings romantic they feel,
They marry some chap who's got no Sex Appeal?
Do you know? Do you know?
If any of you do know,
I wish that you'd make some reply.
For some god-like Adonis a maiden's heart glows,
How on earth does it happen her hand she bestows
On a bald-headed bloke who can't see his own toes?
Do you know?
Girls: Of course not!
Bobinot: Neither do I.
Girls: Do you know? Do you know?
We fancy very few know,
So how can we make a reply?
Bobinot: Tell me how Love begins
If the man's got three chins. Do you know?
Girls: Of course not!
Bobinot: Neither do I.
   
Bobinot: The topic of feminine dress
To me is a problem mysterious.
It seems the one point, I confess,
On which ev'ry woman is serious.
Now why can't you ladies just wear what you please,
And not follow blindly where Fashion decrees?
Do you know? Do you know?
If any of you do know,
I wish that you'd make some reply.
You just alter your figures according to taste,
It's the fashion one year not to have any waist,
Now I wonder next season where hips will be placed,
Do you know?
Girls: Of course not!
Bobinot: Neither do I.
Girls: Do you know? Do you know?
We fancy very few know,
So how can we make a reply?
Bobinot: Will your skirts touch the ground
Or be shorter all round? Do you know?
Girls: Of course not!
Bobinot: Neither do I.
