VERSE
1TH CREDITOR:
You owe me five francs, Miss.

You owe me five more.

And me, a louis d'or.

You owe me for the rent, Miss.

Listen to me,
Listen to me,
Listen to me, en masse.

REFRAIN 1

PISTACHE:
Though I have not a single sou
In my stocking or my shoe,
I shall positively pay you next Monday.
Though not a centime I possess
In the bodice of my dress,
I shall positively pay you next Monday.
If but look you will
At my empty till,
Ev'ry eye will fill with tears,
So run along and take a stroll,
Though I have to sell my soul,
I shall positively pay you next Monday.

REFRAIN 2

BOYS:
Though she has not a single bean, m-m-m,
In her garden once so green, m-m-m,

PISTACHE:
I shall positively pay you next monday.

BOYS:
Though she has nothing left to eat, m-m-m,
But an old petite marmite, m-m-m,

PISTACHE:
I shall positively pay you next Monday.
Though to smile I try,
From starvation, I
Am about to die, my dears.

BOYS:
So go away and please behave,
Though she may be in her grave, m-m-m,

PISTACHE:
I shall positively pay you next Monday,
Or Tuesday,

BOYS:
Or Wednesdav,
Or Thursday,

PISTACHE:
Or one day,

BOYS:
May be Doomsday

PISTACHE:
One of these years,

BOYS:
One of these years.

6 CREDITORS:
Goodbye, little one,

4 CREDITORS:
Goodbye, little one,

2 CREDITORS:
Do not cry, little one,

1 CREDITOR:
Do not cry, little one,

BOYS:
Well done, little one, well done, little one,

PISTACHE & BOYS:
Hip, hip, hip, hooray, three cheers!
