No. 18 - Song - Lord Bicester and Chorus - Little Girl, Mind How You Go!

MIDI File

Lord Bicester: When a man sees a maid,
And a maid sees a man,
And they both of them say, Delicious!
If they both meet again
Just as soon as they can,
Well, it does look a bit suspicious!
It may be delicious,
But it still looks suspicious!
There's also the danger,
Although he's quite a stranger,
If he gets a chance
When she gives him a dance,
That her hand he may kiss —
Like this!
Little girl, Little girl,
Little girl, Little girl!
Mind how you go!
Beautiful fairy,
You'd better be wary
Of lads you don't know!
Every one of them wants to flirt,
One or two kisses like that won't hurt,
But, little girl, Little girl,
Little girl, Little girl!
Mind how you go!
Girls: Little girl, Little girl,
Little girl, Little girl!
Mind how you go!
Beautiful fairy,
You'd better be wary
Of lads you don't know!
Every one of them wants to flirt,
One or two kisses like that won't hurt,
But, little girl, Little girl,
Little girl, Little girl!
Mind how you go!
   
Lord Bicester: When a maid sees a man,
And a man sees a maid,
And they often repeat that meeting;
They may lunch, they may dine,
But I'm rather afraid
That they don't spend the whole time eating!
Forgive me repeating,
They can't both go on eating;
They must stop for drinking,
Or passing salt, or thinking!
And just now and then,
Whether women or men,
They may both find the light
Too bright!
Little girl, Little girl,
Little girl, Little girl!
Mind how you go!
Supper is jolly,
But possibly folly —
Twelve-thirty — hullo!
Twopenny Tube is quick, but slow,
Taxi is quicker — but oh, dear no!
So, little girl, Little girl,
Little girl, Little girl!
Mind how you go!
Girls: Little girl, Little girl,
Little girl, Little girl!
Mind how you go!
Supper is jolly,
But possibly folly —
Twelve-thirty — hullo!
Twopenny Tube is quick, but slow,
Taxi is quicker — but oh, dear no!
So, little girl, Little girl,
Little girl, Little girl!
Mind how you go!
   
Lord Bicester: When a maid meets a man,
And a man meets a maid,
Well, they can't simply go on meeting;
For although it's a game
That is frequently play'd,
It's a game that involves some cheating!
So both of these meeters
Foregather at St. Peter's;
And later that mater
May buy a p'rambulator,
And life is a dream
Of strawb'ry and cream,
For a year, I confess,
Or less!
Little girl, Little girl,
Little girl, Little girl!
Mind how you go!
Careful of others
Who love you like brothers —
At least they say so!
Hubby was never a hopeless dunce,
He was a brother to someone once!
So, little girl, Little girl,
Little girl, Little girl!
Mind how you go!
Girls: Little girl, Little girl,
Little girl, Little girl!
Mind how you go!
Careful of others
Who love you like brothers —
At least they say so!
Hubby was never a hopeless dunce,
He was a brother to someone once!
So, little girl, Little girl,
Little girl, Little girl!
Mind how you go!
