No. 13 - Act II Opening Chorus

MIDI File

Girls: Any time you're passing, if there should be anything that you require,
You'll find us very, very busy in our work-a-day attire.
Starting very early in the morning, we go on till six o'clock,
As soon as business is over, we put on a diff'rent frock.
Are you surprised that we all long for six o'clock?
Here's Mister Schnapps, we'll soon be freed.
We hope you're very well indeed.
Schnapps: Is no one absent?
Girls: No, we all of us are here!
Men: You little think that we've been toiling hard out there,
Girls: Hard out there.
Men: It is a matter of indifference to you.
Girls: Yes, it's true.
Men: But if you could see the bottles in the yard...
Girls: The yard out there.
Men: You would not say that we were lazy, as you always do.
Girls: We do.
Men: Still, as the schoolboy revels when his tutor goes...
Girls: Tutor goes,
Men: And for his daily work no longer cares a pin,
Girls: Cares a pin!
Men: So we're anxious for the moment when the hooter goes...
Girls: Hoo! hoo!
Men: For it will mean that the fête is going to begin;
All: Yes, as the schoolboy revels when his tutor goes,
And for his daily work no longer cares a pin,
So we're anxious for the moment when the hooter goes,
For it will mean the fête is going to begin;
When all join in,
And when the fête commences
There'll be revels here,
Such as were never seen in any other town;
And we'll all behave like perfect little devils here
Until the whole distillery is upside down!
Until the whole distillery is upside down!
Yes, until the whole distillery shall be all upside down!
