No. 28 - Song - Lady Violet and Chorus - "Come along with me."

MIDI File

Lady Violet: When I was extremely small,
Only three or four,
I did nothing wrong at all
For a week or more.
Auntie brought my cloak and hood,
Brush'd my hair out neat,
Saying, you have been so good,
You shall have a treat!
I will go with you,
To the Zoo! Zoo, Zoo.
Come along with me,
To the Zoo, dear;
Elephants you'll see,
Great big bears and tigers,
We will have some tea,
Tea for two, dear!
You've been a good little girl,
So come along with me!
Chorus: Come along with me,
To the Zoo, dear;
Elephants you'll see,
Great big bears and tigers,
We will have some tea,
Tea for two, dear!
You've been a good little girl,
So come along with me!
   
Lady Violet: I was at a school while young,
With a garden fair,
Rosy apples overhung
From the orchard there.
But we knew they must belong
To the other side,
So to gather them was wrong,
Yet I fear we tried.
When we went to play,
Someone used to say:
Come along with me,
By the wall, dear;
Nobody you'll see,
I hear Mam'selle snoring.
You can reach the tree,
You're so tall, dear;
Apples are just getting ripe,
So come along with me!
Chorus: Come along with me,
By the wall, dear;
Nobody you'll see,
I hear Mam'selle snoring.
You can reach the tree,
You're so tall, dear;
Apples are just getting ripe,
So come along with me!
   
Lady Violet: When I grew an older girl,
Eager for romance,
I was in a perfect whirl
At my first big dance!
One young man whose eyes were dark
Look'd extremely nice,
And I met him in the Park,
Only once or twice!
But I turn'd so red
When one day he said:
Come along with me,
Will you not, dear?
Married we will be,
Then go honeymooning;
Italy we'll see,
That's the spot, dear!
You've been a good little girl,
So come along with me.
Chorus: Come along with me,
Will you not, dear?
Married we will be,
Then go honeymooning;
Italy we'll see,
That's the spot, dear!
You've been a good little girl,
So come along with me.
