No. 6 - Song - San Toy - "The petals of the plum tree"

MIDI File

San Toy: Where the plumtree flower'd gaily in the garden,
Came an Englishman to meet a little maid.
Chop! Chop!
She thought he was a fop
From the confident assurance he display'd.
So her happy little heart she chose to harden,
And she said: "I cannot love till summer comes."
Chop! Chop!
He saw the petals drop,
And he knew it was too early for the plums.
When the lanterns were alight
In the purple of the night
You could often find him flirting under some tree;
But his heart was ever set
On the little maid he met
By the patter of the petals of the plum tree.

In the shadow of the tree again he found her,
When the seventh moon was shining in the sky.
Chop! Chop!
He thought his heart would stop
As he whisper'd and awaited her reply!
Then the little maid of China peep'd around her,
And she kiss'd him and she held him very fast.
Chop! Chop!
The plums began to drop,
And he knew that they were ripe for him at last.
When the lanterns were alight
In the purple of the night
You could often find him flirting under some tree;
But his heart was ever set
On the little maid he met
By the patter of the petals of the plum tree.
By the patter of the petals of the plum tree.
