No. 6 - Trio - Dora, Nancy, and Susan

MIDI File

Dora: We're dear little girls, you know,
And dear little lives we've led,
But still, I'm afraid, each dear little maid
Has brains in her dear little head.
Nancy: And now for a day or so,
One dear little maid's inclined
To try, if she can, a dear little plan
She's got in her dear little mind.
Trio: Oh, she and I and you
Have such a lot to do;
And we must not reveal the plot
But try to keep it dark —
I think, before we're done
We're sure to have some fun.
We all agree, oh, won't it be,
Yes, won't it be a lark.
Yes, won't it be a lark.
   
Susan: That dear little girl, today,
As part of her deep laid plan,
Will don, more or less, a masculine dress
And look like a dear little man.
Nancy: This other will have to say
That she is a wife, you see;
Her dear little friend will try to pretend
Her dear little husband to be.
Trio: Oh, she and I and you
Have such a lot to do;
And we must not reveal the plot
But try to keep it dark —
I think, before we're done
We're sure to have some fun.
We all agree, oh, won't it be,
Yes, won't it be a lark.
Yes, won't it be a lark!
