MIDI File

Marie: There's a little fable,
When the cat's away,
On the kitchen table,
Mice begin to play.
Chorus: On the kitchen table,
Mice begin to play!
Marie: You know what a cat is
When the mice are slack;
What I mean by that is,
Master's coming back!
Chorus: What she means by that is,
Master's coming back!
Marie: Mind there! mind there!
Master's just behind there!
You've got to get a move on!
Get a move on from now!
Chorus: Get a move on!
Marie: Your ways you must improve on,
Must improve on, somehow!
Chorus: Must improve on!
Marie: Just hurry up about it,
For you've got no time to spare,
If you do not get a move on,
You will have to move on elsewhere!
Chorus: You've got to get a move on!
Get a move on from now!
Your ways you must improve on,
Must improve on, somehow!
Just hurry up about it,
For you've got no time to spare,
If you do not get a move on,
You will have to move on elsewhere!
   
Marie: He may come this minute,
So, for goodness' sake,
Take your hair and pin it,
Give your skirt a shake!
Chorus: Take your hair and pin it,
Give your skirt a shake!
Marie: Show your finest feather,
Tidy up your frocks,
Now then, all together,
Do pull up your socks!
Chorus: Now then, all together,
Do pull up your socks!
Marie: Quick now, slick now,
That'll do the trick now!
You've got to get a move on!
Get a move on from now!
Chorus: Get a move on!
Marie: Your looks you must improve on,
Must improve on, somehow!
Chorus: Must improve on!
Marie: Just change your little aprons,
For you've got no time to spare,
If you do not get a move on,
You will have to move on elsewhere!
Chorus: You've got to get a move on!
Get a move on from now!
Your looks you must improve on,
Must improve on, somehow!
Just change your little aprons,
For you've got no time to spare,
If you do not get a move on,
You will have to move on elsewhere!
