MIDI File

Miss Deare: When I first saw Market Mallory,
There wasn't much Market then,
There wasn't a thing worth mentioning,
There were neither girls nor men,
Chorus: There were neither girls nor men,
Miss Deare: There was just a mass of Mallory,
There wasn't a house to see,
There was nothing but a small mud hut,
The General Post and me.
Chorus: The General Post and she.
Miss Deare: That's all there was of Mallory,
But things have changed you see,
And now of course if you desire
You can post a letter or send a wire,
And all through me;
You can learn a host
'Tween me and the Post,
Chorus: The General Post,
Miss Deare: And me.
Chorus: That's all there was of Mallory,
But things have changed you see,
And now of course if you desire
You can post a letter or send a wire,
And all through she;
You can learn a host
'Tween she and the Post,
The General Post,
Miss Deare: And me.
   
Miss Deare: When I first came to Mallory
There wasn't a thing to do;
For miles around not a soul was found
Who was under ninety-two!
Chorus: Who was under ninety-two!
Miss Deare: They never played Bridge at Mallory,
They never made sinful bets,
But crime began when a nice old man
Bought a packet of cigarettes,
Chorus: Bought a packet of cigarettes,
Miss Deare: That's all there was of Mallory,
But things have changed you see,
You can even buy a Gold mine share,
Or a photo of Mister Labouchere,
And all through me;
You can learn a host
'Tween me and the Post,
Chorus: The General Post,
Miss Deare: And me.
Chorus: That's all there was of Mallory,
But things have changed you see,
You can even buy a Gold mine share,
Or a photo of Mister Labouchere,
And all through she;
You can learn a host
'Tween she and the Post,
The General Post,
Miss Deare: And me.
