No. 11 - Song - Delia and Chorus - A tiny touch.

MIDI File

Delia: You should always try
To look your very best,
Men will be impressed,
Chorus: If you're nicely dressed,
Delia: Just a little touch will often be enough,
A touch of powder-puff will be enough.
Chorus: Puff, puff!
Delia: Then a dab of rouge gives colour to it all —
Just in case young Lord Tom Noddy comes to call!
Just a little teeny, teeny, tiny touch;
Not a bit too little,
Not a bit too much;
Then he's sure to say,
How well you look today!
If it is only just a tiny touch!
Just a little teeny, teeny, tiny touch;
Not a bit too little,
Not a bit too much;
Then he's sure to say,
How well you look today!
If it is only just a tiny touch!
   
Delia: When you have to cross a rather muddy street,
Show an ankle neat —
Chorus: Just above two feet!
Delia: And above the ankle let a something show,
A little frill or so, enough to show —
Chorus: Just so!
Delia: That the fireman's not the only one who knows
All about the charming art of fetching hose!
Just a little teeny, teeny, tiny touch;
Just a frilly frou-frou,
Not so very much;
What they see of you
Will frill them frou and frou,
If it is only just a tiny touch!
Just a little teeny, teeny, tiny touch;
Just a frilly frou-frou,
Not so very much;
What they see of you
Will frill them frou and frou,
If it is only just a tiny touch!
