sense and (non)sensibility

With my sincere apologies to the venerable Jane Austen,

but it seems that “Colonel” James Bond is planning nuptials!

 

Scan 4

pretend, deny it,

you know everybody talks,

i heard of it in town.

my dear, upon my honour,

i met Colonel Bond and

he told me of it directly.

 

you surprise me,

surely must be

mistaken intelligence;

even if true…not what

i expect Colonel B. to do.

 

but, i assure you,

it so happened.

when he began talking

of one thing and another,

i said: so, Colonel,

i hear word (you) are

going to be married,

is it true?

 

and what did the Colonel say?

 

oh, he did say it certain…

 

i declare!  Mr. B. is well, i hope?

 

oh, quite well and

uncommonly charming;

it is a pity he should be

so in love with your sister.

you may tell your sister she

is a monstrous girl to get him.

 

upon my honour,

nothing can be good

enough for her, i assure you!
