MIDI File

Lord Bicester: Wouldn't it be jolly
If we took a little holi-
Day away from here?
Would you come with me, dear?
Far away to sunny Mandalay,
To stray; or say, Paraguay?
[Delia:] Both of us together,
In a land of summer weather,
With a sky of blue
To smile on me and you!
We might go to Monte Video,
You know, or Valparaiso!
Both: That is, you see, if you loved me!
Lord Bicester: Then we might go
To San Francisco,
Delia: Or some other lazy-land,
Some dreamland, some hazy-land,
Lord Bicester: If my time were your time,
Delia: And your time were mine,
Both: Why then, we might sail away
To the Argentine!
   
Delia: Oh! to find a porter!
And desert the bricks and mortar,
For a southern clime
Where one forgets the time!
We might look for some secluded nook
Where Cook and Son would not book!
Lord Bicester: We might find some Chilian
Or some beautiful Brazilian
Spot beside the sea!
(Brazil appeals to me!)
Bear in mind that's where you go to find
The Nuts of every kind!
Both: That is, you see, if you loved me!
Lord Bicester: Then we might do
A new step for two,
Delia: We might find some lazy dance,
A slow dance, a mazy dance,
Lord Bicester: If my step suits your step,
Delia: And your step suits mine,
Both: We might do the Tango Dance
Of the Argentine!
