No. 21: Song (Toto)
MIDI File


Toto (to CARAMEL).
  I’m a foolish little maid,
    A garden growing wild;
  I cannot be demure and staid –
    I’m but a wayward child.
  My simple heart knows no deceit,
    It loves but thee alone,
  And while I live that heart will beat
    For thee, my own, my own.

Toto & Caramel.
  Oh have no fear, oh love of mine,
My simple heart is ever thine!


At the end of the first verse CARAMEL turns up stage and goes off slowly as
DORO enters. DORO comes down stage and TOTO sings second verse to him,
not noticing that any change has taken place
.

Toto.
  While borne from thee o’er many a mile
    Of cold and stormy sea,
  Although my lips have worn a smile
    My heart has ached for thee.
  If many a year had passed away
    And time had left his sign,
  And thou and I were old and grey,
    My heart would still be thine!

Toto & Doro.
  Oh have no fear, oh love of mine,
My simple heart is ever thine!

At the end of the song DORO repulses her.
