No. 4 - Duet - Diana and Pope - "I've always got time..." Lyrics by Percy Greenbank

[Pope:] I'm kept busy all day
In a general way,
Signing cheques perhaps,
Or meeting City chaps.
[Diana:] I just live in a whirl
There was never a girl
Quite so rushed about
Or more invited out.
[Pope:] But in spite of all this fuss
and bus'ness worry,
When I meet with you
I'm never in a hurry;
[Diana:] And the moment you are by my side,
I just let all my social duties sort of slide.
[Pope:] Oh, I've always got the time to talk to you,
Although its true,
I've lots to do.
[Diana:] Well suppose that you begin it,
I've appointments ev'ry minute:
[Pope:] Ring your friends up
And say you've got the "flu."
I just want to whisper softly in your ear
That you're a dear
Say, did you hear?
[Diana:] There are half a dozen other things
that want attending to,
But, I've always got time to talk to you!

[Diana:] I've a regular bunch
Of engagements for lunch,
And for most weekends
I'm book'd to stay with friends.
[Pope:] I've got brokers to see
Who are acting for me,
And the least delay
May mean the deuce to pay.
[Diana:] But when you're about,
I'll keep the others waiting,
What's a Four at Bridge
Compared with tête-à-tête-ing?
[Pope:] When we meet, my heart begins to thump,
And I don't care a hang if all my shares go slump:
[Diana:] Oh, I've always got the time to talk to you,
Although its true
I've lots to do.
[Pope:] The appointments that one misses
Can't compare with stolen kisses,
[Diana:] Shall we start off
By taking just a few?
I just want to whisper softly in your ear
That you're a dear:
Say, did you hear?
[Pope:] There are half a dozen people
that I ought to interview,
But, I've always got time to talk to you!
[Both:] Oh I've always got the time to talk to you,
Although it's true
I've lots to do.
The appointments that one misses
Can't compare with stolen kisses,
Shall we start off
By taking just a few?
I just want to whisper softly in your ear
That you're a dear,
Say, did you hear?
There are half a dozen people
that I ought to interview,
But, I've always got time to talk to you!
