No. 7 - Finale to the Prologue

MIDI File

Chorus: Come, lads and lassies,
Fill up your glasses,
Let's frolic while yet we may,
For time is flying and love is sighing.
'Tis folly to trust delay.
Tomorrow we'll die; let's live today.
So here's to the girl that's true.
To the one who's pretty and wise and witty
I drink from my heart to you.
Indians: To-wa gale-lay-a
Riong dong-wa,
To-wa gale-lay-a Riong dong...
Soldiers: While we're fighting like a lion,
we're fleeced like a lamb.
We're never paid a penny
and the government's a sham.
Indians: ...gale-laya
Soldiers: We now declare with emphasis,
Goodbye, New Amsterdam,
Goodbye, New Amsterdam, dam, dam...
Dutch Girls: Come, lads and lassies,
Fill up your glasses...
Soldiers: We're never paid a penny
and the government's a sham,
Indians: ...gale-laya
Dutch Girls: Come, lads and lassies,
Fill up your glasses...
Let's frolic while yet we may,
Indians: ...gale-laya
Soldiers: We now declare with emphasis,
Goodbye, New Amsterdam,
Goodbye, New Amsterdam, dam, dam...
Dutch Girls: Come, lads and lassies,
Fill up your glasses...
Let's frolic while yet we may,
Indians: ...gale-laya
Dutch Girls: Come, lads and lassies,
Fill up your glasses...
Let's frolic while yet we may.
Indians: To-wa gale-lay-a
To-wa gale-lay-a
Riong dong-wa, Riong dong-wa,
All: To-wa.
