Lyrics

Mrs. Duke:
There are those whose social standing
Is constantly demanding
Every single thing we do the public knows
Then there is a lower strata
Where propriety doesn't matter
I suppose. There are those, there are those


Aunt Mary:
There are those to whom position
Is a natural condition
To be worn with ease like comfortable old clothes
Though the nouveau riche deny it
All their money cannot buy it
Class will out. Goodness knows but there are those

John Lawless: (spoken)
Watercress on toast, ma'am?

Mrs. Duke:
There are those who grace the pages of the blue book
Aunt Mary: (spoken)
Never heard of it. Is it a new book?

Mrs. Duke:(spoken)
Certainly anyone who is anyone is listed

Aunt Mary: (spoken)
Oh, you mean the New York Telephone Directory.

Mrs. Duke:(spoken)
Hardly.

Aunt Mary:
There are those whose names predate the constitution.
Mrs. Duke:(spoken)
Yes, and some of them opposed the revolution.

Aunt Mary:(spoken)
Conservative

Mrs. Duke:(spoken)
Reactionary

John Lawless: (spoken)
Cream cheese and cucumber?

Aunt Mary:
Philadelphia is the cradle of liberty
Mrs. Duke:
Smoldering like an aging page of history

John Lawless: (spoken)
Chopped liver?

Aunt Mary:
There are those who flaunt posterity
Mrs. Duke:
There are those who flaunt austerity
Posing cozy on the rosy status quo
John Lawless: (spoken)
Poison dart, I mean raisin tart
Mrs. Duke:
There are those quite influential
Aunt Mary:
There are those quite inconsequential
Mrs. Duke:
There are those
Aunt Mary:
There are those
Mrs. Duke:
There are those
Aunt Mary:
There are those
Both:
There are those
I suppose
There are those
