No. 11 - Act II Opening Chorus

MIDI File

Chorus: When Society goes shopping
In the regions of the West
Till it's on the point of dropping
And it wants a little rest,
Then its members hither stream in,
And they ask for tea with cream in;
Ev'ry table that we're able
To secure is in request,
Ev'ry table that we're able
To secure is in request.
Waitresses: But our prices, don't forget,
Are exorbitant indeed,
And the middle class regret
If they come in here to feed.
When your income isn't large,
You may feel inclined to mutter:
Three-and-six-pence is our charge
Just for tea and bread and butter.
All: When Society goes shopping
In the regions of the West
Till it's on the point of dropping
And it wants a little rest,
Then its members hither stream in,
And they ask for tea with cream in;
Ev'ry table that we're/they're able
To secure is in request,
Ev'ry table that we're/they're able
To secure is in request,
Is in request.
