My Fair Lady the Musical - Ascot Gavotte Lyrics

Every duke and earl and peer is here
Everyone 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 any second now
They'll begin to run.
Hark! A bell is ringing,
They are springing
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.
