No. 13 - Act II Opening Chorus
Lyrics by Percy Greenbank

MIDI File

Chorus: Rubbing our eyes in surprise,
Round and about us we're gazing,
We must admit we're a bit
Puzzled by sight so amazing.
Fairies have been on the scene,
Leaving behind them their traces,
Changing our dress more or less,
Altering all the old places.
What's the matter with London?
That's what we want to know,
We thought it a city
You'd hardly call pretty,
Not very long ago.
Something's happened to London,
Ev'ryone's making a fuss.
We've only just realised
London's idealised,
London and all of us!
Men: Such a noisy crowd
Cannot be allowed,
Pass along there, if you please!
Tho' today in town
All is upside down,
Pass along there, if you please!
For a thoroughbred policeman is a man of iron nerve,
From the narrow path of duty he will never, never swerve,
If he comes across an earthquake or a cyclone, he'll observe,
Pass along there, if you please!
All: Pass along there, if you please!
If he comes across an earthquake or a cyclone, he'll observe,
Pass along there, if you please!
What's the matter with London?
That's what we want to know,
We thought it a city
You'd hardly call pretty,
Not very long ago.
Something's happened to London,
Ev'ryone's making a fuss.
We've only just realised
London's idealised,
London and all of us!
Just look at us, just look at us, at us!
