No. 17 - Song - Mina

MIDI File

Mina: I've been spoilt such a lot —
It's my fault? No, I'm sure it is not!
It's the men won't leave me alone,
Worry me like a bone;
All day presents I get,
As if I hadn't got enough yet!
Why, there's one more come with a note,
It's a new petticoat!
Oh, lor! dearie, oh, lor!
What on earth shall I do if I get any more?
I've a little pink petty from Peter
And a little blue petty from John,
And I've one, green and yellow,
From some other fellow
And one that I haven't got on.
I've one made of lovely red flannel
That came from an Amsterdam store,
But the point that I'm at
Is that underneath that—
Well, I haven't got on any more!
   
  I don't know what to think —
It's enough to make anyone drink!
Fancy wearing all that I've got
When the weather is hot!
When you think of the old
Ladies shivering out in the cold —
Well, I call it positive mean,
Me wearing fifteen!
Oh, lor! dearie, oh, lor!
I shall look like a tent if I wear any more!
I've a little pink petty from Peter
And a little blue petty from John,
And I've one, green and yellow,
From some other fellow
And one that I haven't got on.
I've one made of lovely red flannel
That came from an Amsterdam store,
If I meet a new friend,
Where on earth will it end?
I shall never get in at the door
   
  What do English girls do?
For I hear that they wear very few!
When they do gymnastics or run,
Then sometimes they wear none.
I should not have the face —
England must be a curious place;
Would that Milo make money too,
If she wore what I do?
Oh, lor! dearie, oh, lor!
I shall say something wrong if I say any more!
I've a little pink petty from Peter
And a little blue petty from John,
And I've one, green and yellow,
From some other fellow
And one that I haven't got on.
I've one made of lovely red flannel
That came from an Amsterdam store,
When I think of the strings
And the hundreds of things,
Oh! it's not safe to dance any more!
