No. 13 - Song - Suki and Chorus - "In Toki-o-ki-o"

MIDI File

Suki: I've faced some dangers terrible,
I've met with horrors grim,
I've been pursued
And hacked and hewed
And sundered limb from limb.
I've been blown up with dynamite,
And pirates captured me,
They stuck hot needles in my ears,
Then stabbed me through and through with spears,
And pushed me in the sea.
Chorus: They stabbed poor Suki through and through,
And push'd him in the sea!
Suki: But now I'm home again in Tokio!
Adventures grim and gory
Have cover'd me with glory,
While shot and shell around me fell
I chuckled soft and low,
"What terrible tales I'll have to tell
In Toki-o-ki-o!"
Chorus: But now he's home again in Tokio!
Adventures grim and gory
Have cover'd him with glory,
While shot and shell around him fell
He chuckled soft and low,
"What terrible tales I'll have to tell
In Toki-o-ki-o!"
   
Suki: I've been attacked by elephants,
And charged by buffaloes;
I've swum for miles
While crocodiles
Were snapping at my toes.
I've had unpleasant interviews
With lions in their lairs,
I've felt the cobra's deadly bite,
And I've been hugged extremely tight
By great big grizzly bears.
Chorus: They hugg'd poor Suki rather tight,
Those great big grizzly bears!
Suki: But now I'm home again in Tokio!
Adventures grim and gory
Have cover'd me with glory.
When into tigers' jaws I fell
I chuckled soft and low,
"What terrible tales I'll have to tell
In Toki-o-ki-o!"
Chorus: But now he's home again in Tokio!
Adventures grim and gory
Have cover'd him with glory,
When into tigers' jaws he fell
He chuckled soft and low,
"What terrible tales I'll have to tell
In Toki-o-ki-o!"
