No. 18 - Song - Isabel and Chorus

MIDI File

Isabel: There's a girl you may have met,
If you have you won't forget,
She is Maisie,
Chorus: She is Maisie,
Isabel: Though her hair is rather red,
She can turn a fellow's head,
Make him crazy.
Chorus: Make him crazy.
Isabel: Now she isn't slimly built,
And her nose has qute a tilt,
And you'll hear the other girls declare
That they really cannot see
What attraction there can be,
But she manages to get right there.
Maisie is a daisy,
Maisie is a dear,
For the boys are mad about her,
And they can't get on without her,
And they all cry "whoops" when Maisie's coming near.
Maisie doesn't mind it,
Maisie let's them stare;
Other girls are so uncertain
When they do a bit of flirting,
But Maisie gets right there.
Chorus: Maisie is a daisy,
Maisie is a dear,
For the boys are mad about her,
And they can't get on without her,
And they all cry "whoops" when Maisie's coming near.
Maisie doesn't mind it,
Maisie let's them stare;
Other girls are so uncertain
When they do a bit of flirting,
But Maisie gets right there
   
Isabel: But she also thinks it fun
To go out with only one,
Little Maisie,
Chorus: Little Maisie,
Isabel: And she may be far from home
When the gloaming's on the gloam,
Dim and hazy.
Chorus: Dim and hazy.
Isabel: Then the stars come out above
And suggest a dream of love,
And there's passion in the balmy air;
So if any handsome chap
Has a comfortable lap,
Maisie manages to get right there.
Maisie is a daisy,
Maisie is a dear,
When she takes a fellow walking
They do not go in for talking,
But he just says "mps" and there's nothing more to hear;
Maisie rather likes it,
Maisie says "You dare."
Other girls when they are kissing
Will go fooling round and missing,
But Maisie gets right there.
Chorus: Maisie is a daisy,
Maisie is a dear,
When she takes a fellow walking
They do not go in for talking,
But he just says "mps" and there's nothing more to hear;
Maisie rather likes it,
Maisie says "You dare."
Other girls when they are kissing
Will go fooling round and missing,
But Maisie gets right there.
   
Isabel: But the girl that scores the most
At a town upon the coast
That is Maisie,
Chorus: That is Maisie,
Isabel: For a donkey ride or row
She is always on the go,
Never lazy.
Chorus: Never lazy.
Isabel: She'll be bathing in the bay
Where the regulations say
That the gentlemen must go elsewhere;
But the current now and then
Takes her in among the men,
And of course she has to land right there.
Maisie is a daisy,
Maisie is a dear,
And she likes the boys to chaff her
And the men to photograph her,
For they all cry "whoops," as they see her from the pier;
Maisie poses nicely,
Maisie thinks it rare.
Other pretty girls provoke us
By retiring out of focus,
But Maisie stops right there.
Chorus: Maisie is a daisy,
Maisie is a dear,
And she likes the boys to chaff her
And the men to photograph her,
For they all cry "whoops," as they see her from the pier;
Maisie poses nicely,
Maisie thinks it rare.
Other pretty girls provoke us
By retiring out of focus,
But Maisie stops right there.
