No. 28 - Extra Duet - Cora and Dora

MIDI File

At a wedding that is smart
If you want to lose your heart
Keep your eye on Cora, do.
She's among the girls who glide
In attendance on the bride.
Keep your eye on Cora, do.
She is only just a bridesmaid,
Such a modest little thing,
But as soon as she approaches
all the Choir forget to sing,
And the parson when he ought to
keep his eye upon the ring,
Well, he keeps his eye on Cora too.
Cora, Cora, captivating Cora!
Just a little bridesmaid for you all,
With a smile — a,
walking down the aisle — a,
Captivating Cora makes the bride look small!

When the service all is done
And the feasting has begun,
Keep your eye on Cora, do.
Though she tries to hide away
Ev'rybody seems to say:
Keep your eye on Cora, do.
There is general rejoicing
that the nuptial knot is tied,
And the compliment the husband
on the lady by his side,
He affectionately holds
the dainty fingers of his bride,
But, he keeps his eye on Cora too.
Cora, Cora, captivating Cora!
Just a little bridesmaid for you all,
With a smile — a,
walking down the aisle — a,
Captivating Cora makes the bride look small!

Very soon will come the day
When she'll give her heart away.
Keep your eye on Cora, do.
For you'll find that all the men
Will propose to her, and then
Keep your eye on Cora, do.
There'll be very little need
the wedding service to rehearse,
For she knows the way to softly say
For better or for worse.
But her husband if he's wise
will keep his eye upon his purse,
And he'll keep his eye on Cora too.
Cora, Cora, captivating Cora!
How can one resist a girl so smart?
With a smile — a,
walking down the aisle — a,
Captivating Cora makes you lose your heart!
