Ascot Gavotte lyrics

Album: My Fair Lady

Ladies and Gentlemen
Every duke and earl and peer is here
Everyone who should be here is here.
What a smashing, positively dashing spectacle:
The Ascot op'ning day.
At the gate are all the horses
Waiting for the cue to fly away.
What a gripping, absolutely ripping moment
At the Ascot op'ning day.
Pulses rushing!
Faces flushing!
Heartbeats speed up!
I have never been so keyed up!
Any second now they'll begin to run. Hark!
A bell is ringing, They are springing forward
Look! It has begun...!
What a frenzied moment that was!
Didn't they maintain an exhausting pace?
'Twas a thrilling, absolutely chilling running
Of the Ascot op'ning race.
