    A22 Music For A While

    Lyrics based off of the greek mythological story of Medusa.

    Music, music for a whileshall all your cares beguile,

    shall all, all,all,shall all, shall all,shall all your cares beguile:

    Wond'ring, wond'ring how your painswere eas'd, eas'd, eas'dAnd disdaining to be pleas'dTill Alecto free the dead,till Alecto free the dead

    from their eternal, eternal bands,Till the snakes drop,drop, drop, drop, drop,drop, drop, drop, drop from her head,And the whip,and the whip from out her hands.

    Music, music for a whileshall all your cares beguile,

    shall all, all,all,shall all, shall all,shall all your cares beguile,all, all, all, all, all, all, all, all,shall all your cares beguile.

    A Chloris

    S'il est vrai, Chloris, que tu m'aimes,Mais j'entends, que tu m'aimes bien,Je ne crois point que les rois mmesAient un bonheur pareil au mien.Que la mort serait importuneDe venir changer ma fortuneA la flicit des cieux!

    Tout ce qu'on dit de l'ambroisieNe touche point ma fantaisieAu prix des grces de tes yeux.

    If it be true, Chloris, that thou lovst me,

    And I understand that thou dost love me well),I do not believe that even kingsCould know such happiness as mine.How unwelcome death would be,If it came to exchange my fortuneWith the joy of heaven!All that they say of ambrosiaDoes not fire my imaginationLike the favour of thine eyes.

    C10 Business Girls

    From the geyser ventilatorsAutumn winds are blowing downOn a thousand business womenHaving baths in Camden Town.

    Waste pipes chuckle into runnels,Steam's escaping here and there,Morning trains through Camden cuttingShake the Crescent and the Square.

    Early nip of changeful autumn,Dahlias glimpsed through garden doors,at the back precarious bathroomsJutting out from upper floors,

    And behind their frail partitions,Business women lie and soak,Seeing through the droughty skylightFlying clouds and railway smoke.

    Rest you there, poor unbelov'd ones

    Lap your loneliness in heat.All too soon the tiny breakfast,Trolley bus and windy street!

    D22 Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man

    Oh listen, sister,I love my Mister man and I can't tell yo' why,Dere ain't no reasonwhy I should love dat man.

    It must be sumpin' datDe angels done plan.

    De chimney's smokin',De roof is leaking' in,But he don't seem to care,He can be happyWid jus' a sip of gin.

    I even loves him when his kisses got gin.

    Fish got to swim and birds got to fly,I got to love one man till I die,Can't help loving' dat man of mine.

    Tell me he's lazy,tell me he's slow,Tell me I'm crazy,maybe I know,Can't help loving' dat man of mine.

    When he goes awayDat's a rainy day,And when he comes back dat day is fine,De sun will shine.

    He can come home as late as can be,
