No. 27 - Extra Song - Cora

MIDI File

Cora: I love to see young people good,
It's really so amusing.
I've tried to be quite good myself,
But found it too confusing.
To have to stop and think each time,
It takes me far too long,
It's much more fun to know what's right,
And then to do what's wrong.
For I'm not a simple little girl,
I'm not a goody-goody girl,
I know exactly what is what,
I know what's right but I prefer what's not!

You ought to see me at a ball,
I'm absolutely proper
Until I'm asked to have a dance,
And then I tell a whopper.
But later on, when someone comes
to take me down to sup,
I really don't know how it is,
I seem to liven up!
For I'm not a simple little girl,
I'm not a goody-goody girl,
Good men are wonderfully few,
I hate bad men, but still I do love you!
