No. 14 - Song - Sir William Hake with Chorus

MIDI File

Hake: When you're out on the spree it's a first rate plan
To make sure that you see all the fun you can.
You know what I mean?
Chorus: Yes, we know what you mean.
Hake: And I ain't never been to a water fête
So I want to be posted and up to date,
You know what I mean?
Chorus: Oh, we know what you mean.
Hake: Well, what's the proper thing to do?
Fancy dress? eh?
Chorus: You stick to us, we'll pull you through.
See you don't stray.
Hake: Good girls! that's right,
We'll have some fun tonight;
All the plans I leave to you,
Paint the town Venetian blue;
I'll pay my way —
I mean to see the show.
When the Water Fête begins, I mean to —
You know!
Chorus: Good girls! that's right,
We'll have some fun tonight;
All the plans he leaves to you,
Paint the town Venetian blue;
He'll pay his way —
He means to see the show.
When the Water Fête begins, he means to —
You know!
   
Hake: If I chance on a maiden to cast my eye
Who is not too demure and who's not too shy,
You know what I mean?
Chorus: Yes, we know what you mean.
Hake: You'll remember I wish to be left alone,
I'll dispense with the aid of a chaperone,
You know what I mean?
Chorus: Oh, we know what you mean.
Hake: For I intend to make things hum,
That's my game! See?
Chorus: You'll find us all both deaf and dumb,
Most discreet, we.
Hake: Good girls! that's right,
We'll have some fun tonight;
Don't forget my wealth's immense,
Paint the town at my expense,
I'll pay my way —
Because I like to show
All the world Sir William Hake is quite the —
You know!
Chorus: Good girls! that's right,
We'll have some fun tonight;
Don't forget my wealth's immense,
Paint the town at my expense,
I'll pay my way —
Because I like to show
All the world Sir William Hake is quite the —
You know!
