No. 4 - Chorus and Song - "Suki is coming"

MIDI File

Girls: Suki is coming, the Maker of Words,
Bright as a button and gay as the birds!
Chattering, pattering, coxening, flattering,
There's not a trade of which he's not a smattering!
Tricky of tongue, he is equally glib,
Telling a fortune or telling a fib!
Suki pretends he's a wizard, but is he one?
Suki's a gossip and Suki's a busy one!
Suki the charlatan! Suki the seer!
Suki! Suki! Suki! Suki is here!
Suki: Good morning to you all!
Is there anything, pray,
I can do for you today?
On matters great and small
I'll offer advice
At a reasonable price.
I'll tell your fortune while you wait,
Whatever your position;
And bargains I'll negotiate
At ten per cent commission.
Girls: And bargains he'll negotiate
At ten per cent commission.
Suki: Oh! Suki, Suki, Suki San!
Really he's a wonderful man.
If you get
In love or debt,
Simply send for Suki!
Girls: Suki, Suki, Suki San!
Really he's a wonderful man.
If you get
In love or debt,
Simply send for Suki!
   
Suki: I'll cast your horoscope,
Or see what is said
By the bumps upon your head.
And should your wife elope,
I'll get on her track
If you really want her back.
When worried by domestic cares
You'll find my aid essential.
Of course I'll treat your love affairs
As strictly confidential.
Girls: Of course he'll treat our love affairs
As strictly confidential.
Suki: Oh! Suki, Suki, Suki San!
Really he's a wonderful man.
When perplex'd
Annoy'd or vex'd,
Simply send for Suki!
Girls: Suki, Suki, Suki San!
Really he's a wonderful man.
When perplex'd
Annoy'd or vex'd,
Simply send for Suki!
Suki San!
Suki: Suki San!
Girls: Really he's...
Suki: A wonderful man.
Girls: If you get
In love or debt,
All: Simply send for Suki!
