No. 9 - "Pynka Pong"

MIDI File

Poppy: You cannot think how dull it is
Where fashion plates are nullities,
I'm wasting Paris frocks in Pynka Pong.
Others: Pynka Pong.
Max: I never meet a specimen
Of any of the dressy men
To London or to Paris who belong.
Others: Who belong.
Dudley: No footman here has calf enough
Or pads or powders half enough
To suit a London lady's maid of taste.
Others: Maid of taste.
Li: Him not so ploppa fine a man
As numpa one big Chinaman;
My lovee squeezee lillee girlie waist!
Others: Lillee waist.
Men: Pynka Pong, Pynka Pong, Pynka Pong, Pynka Pong!
All: A pleasant little place is Pynka Pong.
With natural attractions very strong.
And the tourist simply mute is
When he gazes on its beauties,
But the tourist doesn't live here all along!
Would he weary of its beauties
If through diplomatic duties
He was doom'd to Pynka, Pynka, Pynka Pong.
   
Preston: At concert or bazaar or two
We hear a local star or two,
We're easily amus'd in Pynka Pong.
Others: Pynka Pong.
Tucker: The banjo I can strum a bit,
And try to make things hum a bit
With echoes of the latest comic song.
Others: Comic song.
Dudley: A banjo's too monotonous
For those, like me, who've got on us
A passion for a pianist with hair.
Others: Ruddy hair.
Li: Me getee piano numpa one,
You lovee me to thumpa one,
Him longa tail than foleign devils wear.
Others: Devils wear!
Men: Pynka Pong, Pynka Pong, Pynka Pong, Pynka Pong!
All: There's something in the name of Pynka Pong
Which doesn't seem exactly to belong
To the lazy land of China,
For it smacks of Carolina
And the sugar cane and coon and cotton song.
Yes, it smacks of Carolina
And of dark and dusty Dinah,
Pynka, Pynka, Pynka, Pynka, Pynka Pong.
