No. 18 - Song and Chorus - "The Whole Story"

MIDI File

Poppy: How are English husbands won?
Would you like to know?
I will tell you how it's done,
By the Comme il faut.
First the timidest of glances
At a ball, between the dances,
Making someone stop and think:
"Who's the pretty girl in pink?"
Introduction talk that's terse:
"Awful hot!" "Do you reverse?"
"Cool in the conservatory" —
That's the prologue of the story!
   
Chorus: Introduction talk that's terse:
"Awful hot!" "Do you reverse?"
"Cool in the conservatory" —
That's the prologue of the story!
   
Poppy: Common friends are quickly found
And you pretty soon
See a fellow calling round
Ev'ry afternoon.
If your father takes his daughters
Off to Homberg for the waters,
Then the wicked man will swear
That his doctor sent him there!
Tennis, tea, perhaps a walk,
Both are shy and cannot talk.
View the landscape con amore —
That's the middle of the story!
   
Chorus: Tennis, tea, perhaps a walk,
Both are shy and cannot talk.
View the landscape con amore —
That's the middle of the story!
   
Poppy: Then he finds the girl in tears,
Huddl'd in a chair,
Someone told her, it appears
That he didn't care!
Then he hows how silly this is
By the usual vows and kisses,
And the lover must explain:
"Sir, I love your daughter Jane!"
Then in Church, some mutter'd tones
And a March of Mendelssohn's;
Off they drive in rice and glory,
That's the finish of the story!
   
Chorus: Then in Church, some mutter'd tones
And a March of Mendelssohn's;
Off they drive in rice and glory,
That's the finish of the story!

No. 19 — Pas Seul - Trixie
