She was poor but she was honest
Shelling Green peas
A simple little string
Sweet little rose from Persia
They're moving father's grave to build a sewer
Twiddly wink
Two little sausages
Villikins and his Dinah
While London's fast asleep

Yes, it was hard to copy because it's a graphics file. I had to download the RTF file.

HAPPY ELIZA AND CONVERTED JANE (A Duet)

Behold in us two quiet girls, we're very sanctified
Since twelve months from this very day, we've never sinned or lied
The path of goodness now we walk, and think it mighty grand
For we have joined the noble lot, the Hallelujah band.

CHORUS
They call me Happy Eliza and me Converted Jane
We've been so wicked in our time, we'll never do so again
Oh will you come and join us? it's easily understood
We're hallelujah sisters and we're bound to do you good.

It's just a year ago today since we gave up all vice
Altho' we know it naughty was, we still think it was nice
The army came upon us and, though enemies we were
The Captain said, 'You'll both be saved if to our cause you swear.'

CHORUS

We know that very good we are, but strangely to relate
Although we're often deep in thought, we don't forget the plate
For money we can't do without, for nice things we all crave
Besides we all must make some bunce (???), if through the streets we rave.

CHORUS

So come my noble brethren come, and join our noble flock
It's not as bad as you may think, for we've got right good stock
Of buxom lasses young and fair, not like big chunks of wood
But all are truly beautiful, and sure to make you good.

CHORUS

They call me Happy Eliza and me Converted Jane
We've been so wicked in our time, we'll never do so again
Oh will you come and join us? it's easily understood
We're hallelujah sisters and we're bound to do you good.
We're hallelujah sisters and we're bound to do you good.

I wouldn't mind a Converted Jane: a woman who can cook in five minutes.

(As the giant hook reaches out from the wings...)

bunce a sudden happening that brings good fortune (as a sudden opportunity to make money)

bunce

: Does anyone know the origin of "Bunce" when referring to receiving payment over and above that which was due?
: Thanks

"BUNCE n. British -- money or profit. A word dating from the 19th century and almost obsolete by the 1960s, except among street traders and the London underworld. In the late 1980s the word was revived by middle-class users such as alternative comedians in search of colourful synonyms in a climate of financial excesses. Bunce may originally have been a corruption of 'bonus.'" "The Dictionary of Contemporary Slang" by Tony Thorne (Pantheon Books, New York, 1990).
"British English: A to Zed" by Norman W. Schur (Harper Perennial, New York, 1987) says the American equivalent is "windfall." And that bunce is informal, "...Originally, just an profit (derived from bonus?) but latterly an unexpected one. It has now gained some currency as a verb, especially in the gerund, buncing, to describe the practice, in retail stores, of sticking new higher-price tags over the original lower-price labels on articles for sale."

Joe, my unabridged dictionary says that bunce is slang for money. CF 'bonus.'

Artful, thanks to microwave ovens, we CAN cook in five minutes. Had you forgotten? Trouble is, microwaves can't cuddle or chat.
