Additional Song - Miyo - "Oh dear! Little Jappy girls"

MIDI File

Miyo: Men are all the same,
Foolish and conceited;
Well, they're not to blame,
It's the way they're treated.
Really it's absurd of you
At their feet to grovel;
Take them down a peg or two,
As you'll find the ladies do
In an English novel!
Girls: We have never read an English novel!
Miyo: Oh dear! Little Jappy girls,
If you would be happy girls,
Don't be so afraid of men,
Snub them now and then!
You'll find you can manage them
On the English plan,
If you take a hint from Miyo Ko San.
Girls: Oh dear! Little Jappy girls,
If you would be happy girls,
Don't be so afraid of men,
Snub them now and then!
You'll find you can manage them
On the English plan,
If you take a hint from Miyo Ko San.
   
Miyo: You must now and then
Show a bit of cunning.
Don't run after men,
Let them do the running.
If they try to domineer,
Tease and vex and flout them.
Toss your little head and sneer,
Tell them in a tone severe
You can do without them.
Girls: Could we really get on quite without them?
Miyo: Oh dear! Little Jappy girls,
If you would be happy girls,
Don't be so afraid of men,
Snub them now and then!
You'll find you can manage them
On the English plan,
If you take a hint from Miyo Ko San.
Girls: Oh dear! Little Jappy girls,
If you would be happy girls,
Don't be so afraid of men,
Snub them now and then!
You'll find you can manage them
On the English plan,
If you take a hint from Miyo Ko San.
