4. Duet. — Will Foo's Song

4. Duet.

Will Foo's Song.

Will Foo:
A Prince of the realm am I
Who has loved you for years on end,
Yet never you turn, O proud Kwei-Fei",
Or even once yet unbend.
For the peaches have bloomed a month ago,
And my love is overdue;
So do not depart in weal or woe
Until we have seen a picture show,
Where I might propose to you.

Sweet, chinky chink.
I love you, O so muchie.
Believe me when I say
Sweet chinky chink,
I get so very touchy
When things go another way.

page 21

Sweet chinky chink,
How can you he a Dutchie
With lovers by the score,
For I fancied I was past love
Will I met you., O my last love;
And I love you as I've never loved before.

My Ma keeps this laundry clean,
For you see I'm her daughter fair;
But this much I know, and this I ween,
That the place is on the square,
And the money she makes is hers, not mine,
Tho' the fact is hard to bear,
always noted that wealth's the sign
That what's not yours cannot be thine,
And you love wealth everywhere.

Chorus (repeat).
