No. 3 - Song - Dudley - "A lady's maid"

MIDI File

Dudley: A modern lady's maid
Who serves a modern lady
Has got to know her trade
In nineteen hundred A. D.
To pump a flagging tyre,
To brush a bike or ride it,
To send a note or wire,
And just to look inside it!
For a lady's maid must read a bit
If her active help you need a bit,
As she's in the play, she had better know the plot,
You must let her read a little or she'll want to read a lot!
For a lady's maid must read a bit
If her active help you need a bit,
As she's in the play, she had better know the plot,
You must let her read a little or she'll want to read a lot!
   
  Her mistress's costumes
With perfect taste she chooses.
She uses her perfumes
And wears the smartest blouses.
On Covent Garden nights
When people go a-masking
Her lady's riding tights
She borrows without asking,
For a lady's maid must dress a bit,
It's a taste you can't suppress a bit.
If she wants a gown that you happen to have got
You must let her wear a little or she'll want to wear a lot!
For a lady's maid must dress a bit,
It's a taste you can't suppress a bit.
If she wants a gown that you happen to have got
You must let her wear a little or she'll want to wear a lot!
   
  And if she is dismiss'd
For failing in her duty,
She'll turn a vocalist
Of unsuspected beauty.
Amusement she'll afford
To people smart or shady
And fascinate the lord
Who married her young lady.
For a lady's maid must dance a bit
In the style they do in France a bit,
For she can can-can and she studied on the spot
You must let her kick a little or she's sure to kick a lot!
For a lady's maid must dance a bit
In the style they do in France a bit,
For she can can-can and she studied on the spot:
You must let her kick a little or she's sure to kick a lot!
