ne and Round Pond.

Enter BLANCHIDINE and BRUNETTE, with their arms thrown affectionately around one another. BLANCHIDINE is carrying a large and expressionless wooden doll.

Duet and Step-dance.

Bl. Oh, I do adore BRUNETTE! (Dances.) Tippity-tappity, tappity-tippity, tippity-tappity, tip-tap!

Br. BLANCHIDINE'S the sweetest pet! (Dances.) Tippity-tappity, &c.

Together. When the sun is high, We come out to ply, Nobody is nigh, All is mirth and j'y!

With a pairosol, We'll protect our doll, Make a mossy bed For her wooden head!

[Combination step-dance, during which both watch their feet with an air of detached and slightly amused interest, as if they belonged to some other persons.

Clickity-clack, clickity-clack, clickity, clickity, clickity-clack; clackity-clickity, clickity-clackity, clackity-clickity-clack!

[Repeat ad. lib.
