Lyrics:

Dear Mr Darcy, Dear Mr Darcy


Verse One:
Dear Mr Darcy we're composing a letter
We'll discuss your merits how you could be doing better
You're the picture of gentility despite your lack of cheer
And no one could object to 10,000 pounds a year
You have all the qualities of a desirable man
But if you're open to feedback we hope that you can
Take on just one instruction couldn't possibly hurt
For you to spend more time in a wet white shirt

Chorus:
Dear Mr Darcy we don't want to be cruel
But if we saw you on the street we'd push you into a pool
Dear Mr Darcy we don't mean to be curt
But we only want to see you in a wet white shirt

Verse Two:
You pay of wretched weddings with stealth and bribery
And behind closed doors have an enourmous library
You like your hems dirty and admire fine eyes
But only if they're brightened by exercise
You're rude, abrasive and you don't enjoy balls
You forget the main point it's not about his flaws
Let's give positive feedback, let's take a look
At his finest moment - It's not even in the book!
We know you're not perfect -- Let's agree on that
But your bodies pretty close not a skerrick of fat
We don't understand how you're keeping it so tight
We insist that what it's covered in is wet and white

Chorus:
Dear Mr Darcy we don't want to be mean
But the thought of you in dry clothes is just obscene
Dear Mr Darcy you're keeping it tight
We insist that what it's covered in is wet and white

Bridge:
Fitzwilliam Darcy the reason you're likeable
Is not because you're rich, attractive and reliable
Or because the grounds at Pemberley are desirable
What we really want is a mind that's pliable
Although it might seem despicable
We fall in love for reasons that are typical
It's not until we realise your characters changeable
We want the perfect man to be rearrangeable!

Verse Three:
Please forgive us for our lack of piety
We're justified by your impropriety
We know you're not an object we really do
We're ashamed of ourselves we swear it's true
Having said that now if you could take the time
Could you ride a horse all covered in grime?
Or chop down a tree all sweaty and glowing?
Or lean in to the wind when it subtly blowing?
It doesn't matter who plays you but for what it's worth
We'll always close our eyes and think of Colin Firth

Sincerely,

Every Woman, ever.


About Sense and Spontaneity

Sense and Spontaneity are a completely unscripted comedy duo inspired by the work of Jane Austen.

Esther Longhurst and Jess Mess are two of Perth's premier improvisers and creative talents. Together with fellow creative, Sound and lighting designer Amanda Ash, they have enjoyed multiple sell out seasons at festivals across WA since 2014

About Dear Mr Darcy
Dear Mr Darcy is Sense and Spontaneity’s first comedy video. After touring around WA, the pair wanted to create online content to connect with their wider audience. As the show attracts a large female audience they wanted to make a comment about the female gaze that exists within our storytelling.

Longhurst writes
Our show attracts a diverse range of people, from hard core Jane Austen fans, to people who have never even heard of her. One thing we have found, no matter where we went, women young and old all confessed the same thing, that they loved seeing Colin Firth emerge dripping wet from the water. We were bewildered that an image that didn’t exist in the book had such an impact on Austen audiences. We decided that in true Austen style, if we wanted to make a comment on this phenomena, it had to be satirical; celebrating the idea as much as we mocked it.”

The pair hope to create more online videos in the style and world of Jane Austen. They believe putting an “Austen filter” over modern issues gives you permission to talk about them with a fresh perspective.
