I was reading a piece that was posted by Mikeharvey(Oct 26,2009) with the lyrics from Noel Coward's 'Mad About The Boy' that are rarely if ever used. As a singer, I have often wondered what the lyrics for the school girl, cockney and the businessman may have been, and here they are, well the refrains at least. The inaugural Melbourne Cabaret Festival starts this week with a gala concert at the Sth Melbourne Town Hall Wed July 21st, and I am singing 'Mad About The Boy', among other things. I'd love to know if Mike or anyone else knows the verses that go with the refrains for the Cockney, the Schoolgirl and Businessman. I'm only singing the 2 best known parts, for the Society Lady and the Street walker, but am keen to know the lyrics in their entirity for future use/reference. It's a great character study, and I wish Mike had quoted it in full. It's Coward at his best, both lyrically and musically. Hope you can help.
Cheers, Jonathon

Hello Jonathan,
You'll find all the lyrics of 'Mad About The Boy' in 'The Complete Lyrics of Noel Coward' which is in print from Worlds Classics - originally published by Methuen. Amazon has copies. I tried to find a website with the complete lyrics but there doesn't seem to be one.
Michael

Dear Michael, I am very grateful for the information about the Noel Coward lyrics. I was trying to find them online, but I think it's too obscure. Now I know at least which book they are in. They are not in my Noel Coward song books that's for sure. I'm going to Amazon now to get myself a copy. Once again, my thanks to you for your prompt reply.
Cheers, Jonathon
