Perfect Young Ladies

LYRIC

[MAISIE, FAY, DULCIE, AND NANCY]
We're perfect young ladies
Preparing to take
Our places among the noblesse
We're perfect young ladies
Preparing to make
The most of the charms we possess

We're being finished
And our families' wealth
May be diminished
But at least we all have perfect health
And making the grade is
Our duty, you see
For perfect young ladies
Are we

We're perfect young ladies
Who hope to attract
A husband whose credit is good

[HORTENSE]
You may be young ladies
But why don't you act
The way that a young lady should?

I've often told you

[MAISIE, FAY, DULCIE, AND NANCY]
Please don't tell us again!

[HORTENSE]
I ought to scold you

[MAISIE, FAY, DULCIE, AND NANCY]
But you know it would be quite in vain
For being a maid is
Your duty, you see
For perfect young ladies
Are

[HORTENSE]
Perfect young ladies
Are!

[MAISIE, FAY, DULCIE, AND NANCY]
Perfect young ladies
Are we
