Lyrics by W. H. Risque

MIDI File

Ebenezer: An Englishman, a German!
That's a couple I should term an
Awkward sort of combination for a customer to "do."
But no partnership can beat it
If we manage to complete it
With the very slight addition of a typical Mossoo.
Ratz: I am full of admirations,
It's a pretty combinations
That a lot of money maken in a very little shall,
Cadi: Mes amis I give my answer
I will join you "Vive la France"
Let us give the hand upon it
Vive l'entente cordiale,
All: Vive l'entente cordiale.
Ebenezer: Oh, the Lion,
Ratz: And the Eagle,
Cadi: And the little Gallic cock,
All: Make a downy little trio
that will never take the knock,
For we're out for making money,
and the betting's five to two
On the Lion and the Eagle, and the Cock-a-doodle-doo.
   
Ebenezer: I'll be the bluff and hearty
Solid business kind of party,
With a breezy kind of honesty that's certain to impress.
Cadi: I shall be for ever smiling,
All the customairs beguiling
With my mannair so delightful,
Ah, toujours la politesse,
Ebenezer: I shall be the slow and steady,
Cadi: I the quick and ever ready,
Ebenezer: I'll deliberate, and cogitate,
I'll scintillate, and flash,
Ratz: I remain all by mind sellef,
What you call upon the shellef
In one tiny little office
where I sit and count der cash,
All: Where he sits and counts der cash.
Ebenezer: Oh, the Lion,
Ratz: And the Eagle,
Cadi: And the little Gallic cock,
All: Make a downy little trio
that will never take the knock,
For we're out for making money,
and the betting's five to two
On the Lion and the Eagle,
and the Cock-a-doodle-doo.
