The Frivolities of 1920

From the musical review “The Frivolities of 1920” produced by G. M. Anderson.

From the ever-flowing jug I get my wine

From the crystal fount of youth these maids of mine

Death is lurking in the fields we daily tread,

But they yield the golden wheat that makes our bread.

It is bounteous in gift this land of mine,

But we’re taught to practice thrift with bread and wine.

My hospitality I offer thee in Araby!

CHORUS:

Araby, Araby,

The land of a million wild delights;

If you want Arabian nights come to Araby,

Araby, full measure of pleasure

You’ll never leave it when once you see

My land of Araby!
