No. 18 - Duet - Sally and Van Vuyt

MIDI File

Sally: Love is a carnival,
And one that's free to all of us.
Sally & Van Vuyt:  Love is a carnival,
And free to big and small of us.
Sally: Love is a festival,
So giddy and so gay for us.
Hey for us! Dey for us! And all who love.
Both: You're unceasing,
Our hearts with endless joy you fill,
Still increasing,
The world can never have its fill, have its fill.
Love is the greatest of all of the Fêtes,
'Tis a carnival fast and furious,
Beautiful in the making,
Winning of hearts and breaking,
Cupid he starts with his wonderful darts,
Which are pointed but not injurous!
Love, you're a mad little mischievous lad!
You're the best fun of all,
You're a carnival for ever!
   
Sally: Love is a carnival
That scorns the word economy —
'conomy, 'conomy!
Seeking only "bon-homie!"
Love is a banquet
Where both rich and poor sup merrily,
Verily, verily! both rich and poor,
Both: You're invited,
The wonders of the feast to share,
Hearts united in ecstasy will mingle there!
mingle there!
Love is the greatest of all of the Fêtes,
'Tis a carnival fast and furious,
Beautiful in the making,
Winning of hearts and breaking,
Cupid he starts with his wonderful darts,
Which are pointed but not injurous!
Love, you're a mad little mischievous lad!
You're the best fun of all,
You're a carnival...
Van Vuyt:   a carnival for ever!
