Fly fast, by rapture enhanced;
Passed thus with thee 'tis no dream;
For love reigns ever supreme.
Knickerbocker: Now when I was a boy,
Woman, without alloy,
Was just like my sweet daughter;
Submissive as I've taught her.
To please me now she'll marry
My chosen Alvin Barry;
A man without alloy I've chosen from a boy.
Chorus: 'Tis all serene like a calm sea-scene,
With a sailor's ship ahoy, ahoy, ahoy, ahoy.
'Tis all serene like a canned sardine
That was canned for the siege of Troy.
Oh, 'twas when he was a boy.

Alacazan Mazourka,
Far back in the siege of Troy;
Alacazan Mazourka!

Alacazan Mazourka,
Was picked out for maiden coy,
As far back as the siege of Troy!
Was picked out for maiden coy,
Yes! Yes!
Violet: Love comes like a summer sigh,
Chorus: Softly o'er you stealing,
Violet: Love comes, and you wonder why
Chorus: To its shrine you're kneeling.
Violet: Love comes and the days go by;
Chorus: While your fate love's sealing.
Love some day must come to all,
Yes, in love all must fall,
Love some day must come to all,
Come to all.
