MIDI File

Violet: We've a scheme for my safe hiding,
Ah! Yes, hiding, in Miss Hurricane's room abiding.
Ah! Yes, abiding,
And my father may search vainly.
Ah! Yes, vainly,
While his lord will dance insanely,
Ah! Yes, insanely.
They may think they'll yet subdue me,
Just as though they really knew me,
But I'll never, never marry
Any one but Alvin Barry. Yes
Men: They'll beset her, they'll not get her,
They'll beset her, they'll not get her,
They'll beset her, they'll not get her, get her, get her,
They'll not get her.
Dolly: Fly! he comes!
Rufus: He needs "be lively" to catch on.
Dolly: Lively as
Rufus: The "Elevated"
Both: To scratch on.
   
Violet: Love comes like a summer sigh,
Softly o'er you stealing,
Love comes and you wonder why
To its shrine you're kneeling?
Love comes and the days go by
While your fate Love's sealing,
Love some day must come to all,
Come to all, come to all,
Love some day must come to all,
Come, yes, Love comes like a summer sigh.
All: Softly o'er you stealing,
Violet: Love comes and you wonder why
All: To its shrine you're kneeling.
Violet: Love comes and the days go by
All: While your fate Love's sealing,
Love some day must come to all,
Come to all, come to all,
Love some day must come to all,
Come to all.
Dolly: He's here enough.
Rufus: We're up to snuff.

Rufus: Sir! Hay-fever, the very worst kind.
Knickerbocker: Gentlemen, your hair, your hair's too short.
Rufus: We double reefed to 'pear at court.
Knickerbocker: Enough, enough, enough, enough.
Gentlemen, I'm looking for my daughter.
Rufus: He is looking for his daughter.
Knickerbocker: I fear, I fear, I fear, I fear.
Gentlemen, I fear she has eloped.
Rufus: Yes, he fears she has eloped.
Knickerbocker: I've searched the steamer over all to no avail.
