No. 7 - Duet - Edna and Brian - "Do you think that you have known me long enough?"

MIDI File

Brian: In the future, come what may,
I shall not forget today,
And the reason why I'm sure that you can guess.
There are very, very few
Little girls as sweet as you,
Hardly any have the charm that you possess.
Edna: But our friendship is so brief,
To the best of my belief,
You have known me for an hour, or rather under;
Yet my little hand you squeeze,
Ad you say such things as these,
Oh! are all men so impatient,
Now I wonder, yes,
Both: I wonder?
Edna: Do you think that you have known me long enough?
Though of course we've had an interesting chat;
Still, your arm should not be placed
Quite so tightly round my waist,
You have hardly,
No, you've hardly known me long enough for that.
Brian: Yes, I think that I have known you long enough,
And of course, we've had an interesting chat,
Both: Still, your/my arm should not be placed
Round my/your dainty little waist,
You/I have hardly known me/you long enough for that!
   
Brian: Time goes quickly, it is true,
When I'm thinking about you,
But I'm sure there's no occasion for your fears,
For we two get on so well,
And for all that I can tell,
We might really have been friends for many years.
Edna: I forgive you what you say
Since you put it in that way,
And I wish that ev'ry gentleman could speak so.
Yes, I like you very much,
And my hand I'll let you touch,
But you mustn't place your lips
Against my cheek so! Yes,
Both: My/Your cheek so!
Edna: Do you think that you have known me long enough?
It is true you make my heart go pit-a-pat,
But I really can't allow
Any kisses from you now,
You have hardly,
No, you've hardly known me long enough for that.
Brian: Yes, I think that I have known you long enough,
And of course, we've had an interesting chat,
Both: Still, your/my arm should not be placed
Round my/your dainty little waist,
You/I have hardly known me/you long enough for that!
You've/I've known me/you long enough for that!
