No. 2 - Song - Miyo - "Honourable Jappy Bride"

MIDI File

Miyo: Honourable Jappy bride,
When she's tied
Up in marriage,
Must not be heard
To say one word
Her husband to disparage.
Honourable English dame
Not the same,
She's far bolder;
Of nobody does she stand in awe,
To hubby she soon lays down the law,
If he begins to scold her.
Some day I may
Be most tip-top married little lady;
Oh my! Won't I
Have my way in ev'rything I do!
I'll find Nice, kind,
High class, six foot, amicable bridegroom,
So it's no use
Thinking of a silly little boy like you!
   
  Honourable Jappy wife
Leads a life;
Rather lonely;
No fun she has,
She's treated as
A pet or plaything only.
Honourable English ma'am,
No meek lamb of the tame sort;
She never get snubb'd or push'd aside.
I'm certain when I become a bride
I'd like to be the same sort.
Some day I may
Be most tip-top married little lady;
Oh my! Won't I
Have my way in ev'rything I do!
I'll find Nice, kind,
High class, six foot, amicable bridegroom,
So it's no use
Thinking of a silly little boy like you!
