Mono ⭐〈Ingénue〉 🎶

, , …,

Here's another great song of Mono sung by Siobhan de Maré, called Life in Mono. Note the word Ingénue.

“Mono ⭐〈Ingenue〉”

The ingénue (/ˈænʒənuː/) is a stock character in literature, film, and a role type in the theatre; generally a girl or a young woman who is endearingly innocent and wholesome. Ingenue may also refer to a new young actress or one typecast in such roles. The term comes from the French adjective ingénu meaning “ingenuous” or innocent, virtuous, and candid. The term may also imply a lack of sophistication and cunning.

Typically, the ingenue is beautiful, gentle, sweet, virginal, and often naïve, in mental or emotional danger, or even physical danger, usually a target of The Cad; whom she may have mistaken for The Hero. Due to lack of independence, the ingenue usually lives with her father or a father figure (although in some rare cases she lives with a mother figure). The vamp (femme fatale) is often a foil for the ingenue (or the damsel in distress).

Title: Life in Mono
Singer: Siobhan de Maré
Lyrics: ?
Music: Martin Virgo?
The stranger sang a theme
From someone else's dream
The leaves began to fall
And no one spoke at all
But I can't seem to recall
When you came along
Ingénue

Ingénue
I just don't know what to do

The tree-lined avenue
Begins to fade from view
Drowning past regrets
In tea and cigarettes
But I can't seem to forget
When you came along
Ingénue

Ingénue
I just don't know what to do

Ingénue
I just don't know what to do

Ingénue
I just don't know what to do

Ingénue
I just don't know what to do

Ingénue
