No. 1: Duet (Patty & Jackson)
To MIDI File

Jackson.
  Today, at eleven,
    Young Woodpecker Tapping
  Will enter the heaven
    Of matrimonee
Patty.
    Matrimonee
Jackson.
  To 'Ria Maguire
    That beauty entrapping
  Woodpecker Esquire
    United will be.
Patty.
    United will be.
Jackson. (Dancing.)
      And the bells they will jingle,
Patty. (Dancing.)
        The wine it will bubble,
Jack.
      As Woodpecker single,
Patty.
        Turn Woodpecker double,
Both.
  Reforming his ways, which are rather too free,
Jumps into the heaven of matrimonee,
Reforming his ways, which are rather too free,
Jumps into the heaven of matrimonee, matrimonee!

Jackson.
  Young Woodpecker Tapping
    (Profess'd lady-killer)
Patty.
    (Profess'd lady-killer)
Jackson.
  Is rarely caught napping
    By widow or maid,
  But her fascinations —
    Her gold and her siller —
Patty.
    Her gold and her siller —
Jackson.
  All considerations,
    Have thrown in the shade!
Patty.
    Quite in the shade!
Both.
  Today, at eleven,
    Young Woodpecker Tapping
  Will enter the heaven
    Of matrimonee!
Jackson. (Dancing.)
      So the bells they will jingle,
Patty. (Dancing.)
        The wine it will bubble,
Jack.
      As Woodpecker single,
Patty.
        Turn Woodpecker double,
Both.
  Reforming his ways, which are rather too free,
Jumps into the heaven of matrimonee,
Reforming his ways, which are rather too free,
Jumps into the heaven of matrimonee!
