No. 20 - Song and Dance - Charm of Paris "Sur la Plage."
Lyrics by George Grossmith, Junr.

MIDI File

Charm of Paris: When in summer-time I go
To some place mondaine,
Very long incognito
I cannot remain;
Ev'ry day I do enjoy
Bathing in the sea,
But some stupid little boy
Always stare at me.
I turn my back-- he get Kodak.
Mon Dieu, que t'es bête!
Sur la plage, on the plage,
They are full of persiflage
When I take my bain-de-mer,
At what do the men all stare?
C'est un ange quand elle plonge
Elle a beaucoup de courage,
Il faut la voir dans la chic peignoir
On the plage.

In the sea not far I go,
For I might get wet,
Just about to there, you know,
Quite enough, you bet.
I'm so very brave, you see,
When I've had my swim;
If some man he look at me,
I look back at him!
Mauvais flaneur, méchant coureur
Comme tu es bête!
Sur la plage, on the plage,
They are full of persiflage
When I take my bain-de-mer,
At what do the men all stare?
C'est un ange quand elle plonge
Elle a beaucoup de courage,
Il faut la voir dans la chic peignoir
On the plage.

Sometimes in the Casino
I am to be found,
Watching les petites chevaux
Gaily going round.
All my money flies away,
It is such a bore;
Kind old gentleman, he say:
"Can I lend you more?"
Next day I see him stare at me,
Le vieux marcheur!
Sur la plage, on the plage,
They are full of persiflage
When I take my bain-de-mer,
At what do the men all stare?
C'est un ange quand elle plonge
Elle a beaucoup de courage,
Il faut la voir dans la chic peignoir
On the plage.
