Ascot Gavotte

This song is by Alan Jay Lerner.

Ladies and Gentlemen
Ev'ry duke and earl and peer is here
Ev'ryone 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
And 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

Written by:

Alan Jay Lerner; Frederick Loewe
