No.12 - Duet - Dudley and Li - "Samee Gamee"

MIDI File

Dudley: Your marriages here
Are certainly queer,
I do not see what's the attraction,
A wife on your plan
Has not got a man,
But only a claim to a fraction.
Li: In England today
You go other way,
Man mally one wifee, of coursee;
She flirtee too hot
With allo big lot,
He have to go gettee divorcee.
Both: Just the same wherever you go,
Samee gamee,
Samee gamee,
Folks exclaimee
Fie! for shamee!
All can play at samee gamee,
Samee gamee,
Samee gamee, O!
   
Dudley: A curious lot
Of customs you've got,
We civiliz'd foreigners lack them.
You Chinamen choose
To whiten your shoes;
In England the gentlemen black them.
Li: Our girlees are sweet,
They bindee their feet,
We thinkee it plopa and lightee;
You callee good taste
To squeezee your waist
So very unpleasantly tightee.
Both: Just the same wherever you go,
Samee gamee,
Samee gamee,
Folks exclaimee
Fie! for shamee!
All can play at samee gamee,
Samee gamee,
Samee gamee, O!
