Mothers and wives Lyrics

1934 West End and Broadway
Conversation Piece the Musical - Mothers and wives Lyrics

Music and lyrics by Noël Coward.

In an atmosphere of bawdy jeu d’esprit
We contrive to be tenaciously conventional,
Tho’ intelligent, we hope,

Our imaginative scope
When all is said and done
Is one-dimensional.

Our appearance should be ample guarantee
Of our vigorous and rigorous morality.

We regard our husbands’ gout
As a proper and devout
And Godly recompense
For sensuality.

But when we look at our greying hairs
We sometimes sigh as we say our prayers.

Conversation Piece the Musical Lyrics

I'll follow my secret heart
Regency Rakes
Charming! Charming! Charming!
There's always something fishy about the French
English lesson – The tree is in the garden
There was once a little village
Mothers and wives
