No. 22 - Chorus of Japanese Maidens

MIDI File

Ensemble: Yes, we've all seen Sham,
Great Tycoon of Japan.
Tycoon, Ta! Ta!
And we find him quite an elevated man.
High-moon, Ta! Ta!
And Gull-Gull, who comes from Yeddo or Sangar.
So far, Ta! Ta!
They're both too lovely for anything, they are.
Oh! they just are;
Ta! Ta! Ta! Ta! Ta! Ta!
Yes, we've all seen Sham,
Great Tycoon of Japan.
Tycoon, Ta! Ta!
And we find him quite an elevated man.
High-moon, Ta! Ta! Ta! Ta!
[Miss Hurricane:] Dear me, dear me, I'm choking,
The General is too provoking;
True love to be thus blocking.
All: Oh! yes, his point he'll carry.
Dolly: He stings just like a nettle,
He boils just like a kettle,
Though Violet is true metal,
All: Lord Dolph, he'll make her marry,
Lord Dolph, he'll make her marry.
Miss Hurricane: Nay, nay, let's hope that Gull-Gull
And Sham with love so full-full,
Who sings just like a bul-bul,
And all you senses lull-lull,
Will make this sad scheme null-null,
All: And help out Alvan Barry.
Miss Hurricane: Oh, yes, if she don't come too late,
She'll turn the scale, she's Violet's fate.
Girls: She who?
Miss Hurricane: Hush! you know,
All: Hush! we know. Hush! Hush! Hush! Hush!
Girls: Speak low!
Miss Hurricane: Walls have ears.
All: Hush! Speak low. Hush! Hush! Hush! Speak low.
   
Miss Hurricane: And oh! may my lord Dol-dol,
With his eternal trol-loll,
Who oh, ah's! like a pol-pol,
Marry some noble Moll-Moll,
On his own side of Sol-Sol,
All: And here no longer tarry.
Miss Hurricane: Oh, yes, if she don't come too late,
She'll turn the scale, she's Violet's fate.
Girls: She who?
Miss Hurricane: Hush! you know,
All: Hush! we know. Hush! Hush! Hush! Hush!
Girls: Speak low!
Miss Hurricane: Walls have ears.
All: Hush! Speak low. Hush! Hush! Hush! Speak low.
Dear me, dear me, we're choking,
The General is too provoking;
True love to be thus blocking.
Oh! yes, his point he'll carry.
No, no, she'll come, we know it,
She'll make Dolph heel and toe it;
Yes, double quick he'll go it,
And leave the field to Barry,
And leave the field to Barry.
