No. 7 - Duet - Lord Bicester and Delia - Ladies.

MIDI File

Lord Bicester: Ladies, you were born to rule us
Ever since the world began;
Sometimes you are cold and haughty,
Sometimes you are simply naughty.
Look how easily you fool us,
Tantalizing ev'ry man!
You will talk of clothes and cooking
Till you think there's no one looking.
Dearest little lady,
Please allow me to remark,
You'd be charming in all places,
Up the river, at the races,
And absolutely perfect
If I met you in the park;
Too delicious in the grey light,
In the shy light of the twilight,
Quite delightful in the daylight,
But a darling in the dark!
  Ladies—
   
Delia: P'rhaps you wouldn't like me
If you got to know me well.
Lord Bicester: I'm content to love you blindly—
Do not take the fact unkindly—
Ladies—
Delia: But it seems to strike me,
You are such a London swell,
I'm afraid I must say No, sir!
Lord Bicester: Say it just a trifle slower!
Dearest little lady,
Please allow me to remark,
Delia: You'd be charming in all places,
Up the river, at the races,
Lord Bicester: You're absolutely perfect,
Delia: When you meet me in the Park;
Lord Bicester: You're delicious in the grey light,
Delia: In the shy light,
Lord Bicester: Of the twilight,
Delia: Quite delightful in the daylight,
Lord Bicester: But a darling in the dark!
