No, she said she'd let someone else tell him :)

Instafilk ttto The Flowers that Bloom in the Spring (G&S, the Mikado)

The poster that's short of a clue (tra la)
Must suffer a lot from the lack
It may look obsessive, it's true (tra la)
But think of the favour we do (tra la)
When we send him in search of a FAQ
When we send him in search of a FAQ

And that is the reason we act as we do
When[1] we chance upon someone who's short of a clue
Tra la la la la,
Tra la la la la,
On someone who's short of a clue
Tra la la la la,
Tra la la la la,
Tra la la la la la la!

[1] Gilbert himself has set ample precedent for inserting an extra unstress when needed :)
