WHERE IS MY DAUGHTER?

MIDI Icon MIDI File 12K, 1 minute 52 seconds.

(Enter Grinder.)

Grinder:

Where is my daughter?
Oh, if I caught her,
If I could find her

Chorus:

Grinder, it's Grinder!
Yes, it's Grinder!

(They slap him on the back.)

Grinder:

Oh, confound it, don't do that,
I've a blister on my back.
Someone said she'd wandered here,
And with Carboy too, I fear:
My wicked daughter!

Chorus:

Grinder, it's Grinder!
Yes, it's Grinder!

(They slap him on the back.)

Grinder:

Oh, confound it, don't do that,
I've a blister on my back.
And what with the potion,
And what with the lotion,
I haven't a notion
What to expect.

Chorus:

What with the potion,
What with the lotion,
Poor old Grinder,
We pity you much.

Grinder
Off Monroe Players (2001)

(Re-enter Eliza.)

Eliza:

Where has he gone?
Say, oh, say.

Chorus:

He'll come back presently,
And it will all end pleasantly,
Ahem! Ahem!
Ahem! Ahem! Ahem!

(Exeunt Grinder and Chorus.)

Eliza:

What does this mean?
I cannot understand,
I cannot understand.
