No. 6 - Song - De l'Orme and Chorus - "Love, You're a Wonderful Game."

MIDI File

De L'Orme: Of all the games that a man can play,
Love in the hardest to beat,
'Tis so easy to play,
But to win in a day
Is not quite so simple a feat,
Not quite so simple a feat.
There are games at which this or that girl may boast
She is able to throw down the glove,
But the game at which ev'ryone scores the most
Is the beautiful game of Love. Ah!
Love is a game, a beautiful game,
A wonderful game for two;
If you don't take care Mr. Love will dare
To play little games with you;
But when all's said and done,
You're splendid fun,
All other games above;
And every day I'm game to play
A fresh little game of Love!
Chorus: Love is a game, a beautiful game,
A wonderful game for two;
If you don't take care Mr. Love will dare
To play little games with you;
But when all's said and done,
You're splendid fun,
All other games above;
And every day I'm game to play
A fresh little game of Love!
   
De L'Orme: There are "Misses" at Billiards,
And so, of course,
"Kisses" are there as well,
At Quoits there are "rings"
Which are valuable things
To every sweet demoiselle,
Every sweet demoiselle.
At Bridge there are Hearts,
And hand-in-hand,
Knaves that indulge in tricks,
There's Football as well,
But please understand
At the game of Love nobody kicks, Ah!
Love is a game, a beautiful game,
A wonderful game for two;
If you don't take care Mr. Love will dare
To play little games with you;
But when all's said and done,
You're splendid fun,
All other games above;
And should any Miss
Refuse a kiss,
I'll cheat at the game of Love!
Chorus: Love is a game, a beautiful game,
A wonderful game for two;
If you don't take care Mr. Love will dare
To play little games with you;
But when all's said and done,
You're splendid fun,
All other games above;
De L'Orme: And should any Miss
Refuse a kiss,
I'll cheat at the game of Love!
The game of Love!
The game of Love!
