MIDI File

Chorus: Ring, oh, ring a wedding peal,
Pharaoh's daughter comes to wed,
Stamp the deed with royal seal,
Shower blessings on her head.
Girls: Pharaoh's daughter from her bower,
Innocent as cloistered nun,
Must in one quick fleeting hour
Cross the wedding Rubicon.
Ring, oh, ring a wedding peal,
Stamp the deed with royal seal,
Ah! Ah!
Men: Hither comes a Prince of Philæ,
Bravest of a kingly race.
Not a desert foeman wily
Dares to meet him face to face,
Not a desert foeman wily
Dares to meet him face to face,
Ah! Ah!
Basses: Bravest of a kingly race.
Not a desert foeman wily
Dares to meet him face to face,
All: Ah! Ring, oh, ring a wedding peal,
Pharaoh's daughter comes to wed,
Stamp the deed with royal seal,
Shower blessings on her head!
Ring, oh, ring a wedding peal,
Ring, oh, ring a wedding peal,
Stamp the deed with royal seal,
Stamp the deed with royal seal.
