No. 20 - Duet - Lady Violet and Zaccary

MIDI File

Lady Violet: There's a Yorkshire town, very bleak and brown,
Where your life is not too gay.
Zaccary: For the wheels go round with a buzzing sound,
And the chimneys smoke all day.
Lady Violet: But there's a lass, in that dull place,
Who livens up the neighbours with her sunny little face,
Zaccary: And the lads all stare as she runs along,
Both: When the old mill bell goes ding, ding, dong!
Lady Violet: Liza Ann is a neat young lass,
And she's working up at Briggs's mill,
Zaccary: Ev'ry morning at six o'clock
You can see her walking up the hill.
Lady Violet: There she goes with her turn'd up nose!
Zaccary: And her dinner in a nice tin can,
Both: Oh, you'll all of you be mad
When you see another lad
Is a-taking out Liza Ann!
   
Lady Violet: Now there's work to do all the long day through,
And it's Liza does her share;
Zaccary: For you must have bread and a nice warm bed,
And you must have clothes to wear.
Lady Violet: But after work there's a time for play,
And Liza Ann's a good 'un at a summer holiday,
Zaccary: Oh, you should just see her in May or June
Both: On a nice fine Saturday afternoon!
Lady Violet: Liza Ann is a neat young lass,
And she's working up at Briggs's mill,
Zaccary: Ev'ry morning at six o'clock
You can see her walking up the hill.
Lady Violet: There she goes with her turn'd up nose!
Zaccary: And her dinner in a nice tin can,
Both: Oh, you'll all of you be mad
When you see another lad
Is a-taking out Liza Ann!
