No. 4 - Opening Chorus - Scene II
Lyrics by Percy Greenbank

MIDI File

Girls: Oriental belles languidly reposing,
Dreaming, yawning, dozing,
Wile the hours away, the hours away.
Oriental belles it must be confessed, Ah!
Like a short siesta several times a day,
Like a short siesta several times a day.
Life with future hazy pure contentment spells,
For a lot of lazy Oriental belles,
Oriental belles.
It must be confessed, Ah!
Like a short siesta several times a day,
Like a short siesta several times a day,
Like a short siesta several times a day.

But when Laolah dances,
Our glances she entrances,
Lovely little Laolah,
With movement light and airy
And footsteps of a fairy,
Lovely little Laolah,
Turning, pirouetting softly to and fro,
Gliding, hither, thither,
Swaying high and low,
Like a leaf that trembles
When the zephyrs blow,
Oh lovely little Laolah,
Lovely little Laolah,
Laolah, Laolah-olah.
Oriental belles, it must be confessed, Ah!
Like a short siesta several times a day,
Like a short siesta several times a day,
Like a short siesta several times a day.
