No. 28 - Song - Hilda - "A Real Town Lady."

MIDI File

Hilda: It won't be very long
Before I get to town,
And then I mean to be
A lady of renown;
I'll buy up all I see,
Cheyne: And owe for all the rest.
Hilda: For ev'ry single thing I have
Must be the very best!
Oh! I mean to be a real town lady,
I mean to be quite grand,
I mean to give the very finest parties,
With a Hungarian band;
I mean to entertain all London,
Ev'ry one there shall come,
Dukes and academicians,
Soldiers and politicians,
I mean to make things hum.
I mean to be a real town lady,
I mean to be quite grand,
I mean to give the very finest parties,
With a Hungarian band;
I mean to entertain all London,
Ev'ry one there shall come,
Dukes and academicians,
Soldiers and politicians,
I mean to make things hum.
   
Hilda: Of course I shall invite
The heroes of the day;
I'll write to ev'ry General
Who's been away;
And Tommy, too, as well.
My house I mean to show;
Each Officer shall have a kiss.
Cheyne: Hullo! Hullo! Hullo!
Hilda: Oh! I mean to be a real town lady,
I mean to be quite grand,
I mean to give the very finest parties,
With a Hungarian band;
I mean to entertain all London,
Ev'ry one there shall come,
Dukes and academicians,
Soldiers and politicians,
I mean to make things hum.
I mean to be a real town lady,
I mean to be quite grand,
I mean to give the very finest parties,
With a Hungarian band;
I mean to entertain all London,
Ev'ry one there shall come,
Dukes and academicians,
Soldiers and politicians,
I mean to make things hum.
   
Hilda: I'll ask a reg'lar crowd
To dinner ev'ry night,
The morning papers all
Will illustrate the sight,
And then when dinner's done,
At Bridge we'll start to play;
We won't leave off till breakfast time.
Cheyne: Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!
Hilda: Oh! I mean to be a real town lady,
I mean to be quite grand,
I mean to give the very finest parties,
With a Hungarian band;
I mean to entertain all London,
Ev'ry one there shall come,
Dukes and academicians,
Soldiers and politicians,
I mean to make things hum.
I mean to be a real town lady,
I mean to be quite grand,
I mean to give the very finest parties,
With a Hungarian band;
I mean to entertain all London,
Ev'ry one there shall come,
Dukes and academicians,
Soldiers and politicians,
I mean to make things hum.
