Chris: The lamp,
Aladdin: The lamp,
Chris: The lamp,
Aladdin: The lamp,
Fanny: The lamp,
Chorus: Well, what about the lamp?
Fanny: The lamp,
Aladdin: The lamp,
Chris: It's gone,
Aladdin: It's gone,
Chris: It's gone,
Aladdin: It's gone,
Fanny: It's gone,
Chorus: They say the lamp is gone.
Fanny: It's gone,
Aladdin: Yes, gone,
Genie: One moment, one moment, one moment!
I met a girl who said,
"Propriety and etiquette are laid upon the shelf;"
She said, "Come off" and "Quit it,"
"Get a gait," and "Chase yourself!"
Nor did she hesitate a bit
In negatives to use a "Nit,"
In sporty chatter she'd merrily patter,
In language impolite;
From too much boozing,
I dropt into snoozing,
And the lamp got out of sight.
Chorus: 'Tis found!
Others: 'Tis found!
Chris: The lamp!
Aladdin: The lamp!
Chris: The lamp!
Aladdin: The lamp!
Fanny: The lamp!
Chorus: Well, what about the lamp?
Fanny: It's found!
Aladdin: It's found!
Chris: They say!
Aladdin: They say!
Chris: They say!
Aladdin: They say!
Fanny: They say!
Chorus: We say the lamp is found!
Fanny: Hooray!
Chris & Aladdin: Hooray!
Genie: One moment! one moment! one moment!
I know it was that girl.
Aladdin, Genie & others: They are fast asleep.
All: Awake, sleepers!
Men: Hear us call thee to rise.
All: Awake, sleepers!
Men: Let us gaze on thine eyes.
All: Oh, ope thine eyes,
Men: fair sleepers,
All: Ope thine eyes...
Fanny: No guardian of the peace
can with thee trot,
Or match thee in a dozing bee;
The seven sleepers were a wakeful lot,
And not to be compared at all to thee.
Aladdin & Captain: At all to thee, great sleepers,
All: Sleepers, awake.
The seven sleepers were a wakeful lot, wakeful lot,
Chorus: Awake,
Principals: No guardian of the peace can with thee trot,
Or match thee in a dozing bee;
The seven sleepers were a wakeful lot,
And not to be compared at all to thee.
Men: Awake, awake,
Fanny: The seven sleepers were a wakeful lot.
Men: Awake, awake,
Fanny: The seven sleepers were a wakeful lot.
All: Sleepers, awake!
The seven sleepers were a wakeful lot
compared to thee.
Awake, awake, awake.
