3. Duet.

Oh, dear, Mrs. Sticket, won't you let me know,
(Hey, but I'm doleful, willow, willow wally!)
Has our darling Lulu not yet found a beau?

Te Aro House—For Progressive Efficiency.

page 9

Hey, Willow-waly-O!
Life is dull and dreary;
Of the chase I'm weary,
Hey willow waly O!

Mrs. Sticket:
Robinson I grieve to say that this is so,
(Hey, but I'm doleful, willow, willow, waly!)
But our darling Lulu has not yet a beau,
Hey, willow-waly O!
But I'll soon discover
For her a nice lover,
Hey, willow-waly-O!

Be not over sure, for there's a dearth of men
(Hey, but its tiresome, willow, willow, waly.)
If our darling Loo should be a spins ter, then
Hey, willow-waly-O!
Great would be our grieving;
Were she past retrieving,
Hey, willow, waly O!

Mrs. Sticket:
Now, my own dear Rob., you are a gentlemun,
Hey, but I'm certain, willow, willow waly;
Though they may be scarce, our Loo Must marry one.
Hey, willow-waly-O!
'Way with all this sadness,
There'll be cause for gladness,
Hey, willow-waly-O!
