MRS. MEERS
EVERYTHING SEEMS LOVELY
WHEN YOU START TO ROAM
THE BIRDS ARE SINGING

THE DAY THAT YOU STRAY
BUT WAIT UNTIL YOU ARE FARTHER AWAY
THINGS WON’T BE SO LOVELY
WHEN YOU’RE ALL ALONE
HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL KEEP SAYING WHEN
YOU’RE FAR FROM HOME

[Mrs. Meers dangles a photograph in front of
Ching Ho and Bun Foo: it’s their mother.]
