Noël Coward - Planters' Wives Lyrics

1932 West End
Words and Music the Musical - Planters' Wives Lyrics

Music and lyrics by Noël Coward.

Our Husbands deal in Sugar and in Rubber
Our Husbands deal in Coffee and in Tea
Whenever we meet the Vicar’s wife we snub her
To prove our vast superiority
We’re usually sour and apathetic
In tropical heat
Nobody who’s sweet, survives
We powder and primp
And try to be sympathetic
Oh dear
It’s queer
That only with men
We’re thoroughly energetic
We’re Planters’ Wives.
