Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life lyrics

Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life

MR. GRAYDON:
Ah! Sweet mystery of life
At last I've found thee
Ah! I know at last the secret of it all!

MISS DOROTHY:
All the longing, seeking, striving, waiting, yearning
The burning hopes, the joy and idle tears that fall

MR. GRAYDON:
I've a very strange feeling I never felt before
'Tis a kind of a grind of depression

MISS DOROTHY:
My heart's acting strangely; it feels rather sore
At least it gives me that impression

MR. GRAYDON:
My pulses leap madly without any cause
Believe me, I'm telling you truly

MISS DOROTHY:
I'm gay without pause
Then sad without cause

MR. GRAYDON:
My spirits are truly unruly
For I'm falling in love with someone
Some one girl
I'm falling in love with someone
Head awhirl!

BOTH:
Yes, I'm falling in love with someone
Plain to see

MR. GRAYDON:
I'm sure I could love someone madly
If someone would only love me

(They dance an impassioned if acrobatic pas de deux.)

BOTH:
Yes, I'm falling in love with someone
Plain to see
I'm sure I could love someone madly
If someone would only love me
