No. 9 - Sextet - "We're taking a trip"
Lyrics by W. H. Risque

MIDI File

Genie: We're taking a trip, In a hop or a skip,
In a dash, in a flash, In a crack of the whip,
Lally: To a city so rare, to the city so fair,
We acclaim, By the name of La Ville Lumière,
Tippin: Ten minutes is all we're allowed for a call
In the town of renown of the frivolous Gaul;
Genie: So the ten we're allowed
We'll endeavour to crowd
Just as full as can be, Of the sights of Paree.
All: And it's really astonishing once you begin it,
The things you can ram, cram, slam, jam.
Genie: A minute will do for the Rivoli rue,
A minute the Champs Elysées,
A minute the Bourse,
A minute the Courses.
A minute or two déjeuner,
A minute of song at the Café Chantant,
A minute of Paris par nuit,
Par ici, par la, Comme ci et comme ça,
Ten minutes will do for tout Paris.
All: A minute will do for the Rivoli rue,
A minute the Champs Elysées,
A minute the Bourse,
A minute the Courses.
A minute or two déjeuner,
A minute of song at the Café Chantant,
A minute of Paris par nuit,
Par ici, par la, Comme ci et comme ça,
Ten minutes will do for tout Paris.
   
Genie: And while on the spot,
As it's part of the plot,
We must pop in a shop,
Tippin: Why not pop in the lot?
Foss: It's an excellent plan,
We must see all we can so we'll call on them all
From Thérèse to Paquin,
Laolah: We'll examine and try,
And we'll order and buy
Ev'ry dress that we guess is the very last cry,
And a dozen or so of the latest chapeaux,
That may happen to be in the shops of Paree.
All: And it's really astonishing once you begin it,
The things you can eye, spy, try, buy.
Genie: A minute will do for the Rivoli rue,
A minute the Champs Elysées,
A minute the Bourse,
A minute the Courses.
A minute or two déjeuner,
A minute of song at the Café Chantant,
A minute of Paris par nuit,
Par ici, par la, Comme ci et comme ça,
Ten minutes will do for tout Paris.
All: A minute will do for the Rivoli rue,
A minute the Champs Elysées,
A minute the Bourse,
A minute the Courses.
A minute or two déjeuner,
A minute of song at the Café Chantant,
A minute of Paris par nuit,
Par ici, par la, Comme ci et comme ça,
Ten minutes will do for tout Paris.
