Ravannes: The blissful pleasure I profess
Of such a meeting overjoys me.
I have not language to express
The joy I feel, and that annoys me;
Though with blessings beset,
As I roam the world through,
I can never forget
My first meeting with you.
Erminie: I beg, I beg that you'll not now,
Some other day when more collected,
You may decline, protest and vow
With metaphors you've recollected.
Though with worries beset,
It is equally true,
I shall never forget
My first meeting with you
All: Though with blessings beset,
It is equally true,
I/He shall/will never forget
My/His first meeting with you.
Though with blessings beset,
It is equally true,
I/She shall/will never forget
My/Her first meeting with you.
Cadeaux (slightly intoxicated):
  Hallo! what's the row, what's the rumpus?
Ravannes: Silence!
Cadeaux: Stow it, don't you thump us!
Ravannes: We've a bold game on tonight!
Be mum, be steady!
Cadeaux: Fly, all right.
Ravannes: Since hospitably you extend
Your favours I'll present my friend,
My friend the Baron,
you will find him quite an oddity;
Strange in his habits, in his manner and address,
Priz'd as a curio, a saleable commodity,
Erratic and original you see;
Yes, yes,
My friend the Baron's quite a feast
Of phrase and customs of the East;
Acquir'd the Arab tribes among;
Expressive, what one might call strong.
All: His friend the Baron's quite a feast
Of phrase and customs of the East;
Acquir'd the Arab tribes among;
Expressive, what one might call strong.
Cadeaux: I'm proud to meet yer, how d'ye do,
Old Cockalorum, how are you?
Chevalier: Cockalorum, Cockalorum.
Cerise: Somewhat vulgar, scarce decorum.
Ravannes: My friend the Baron's quite a feast
Of phrase and customs of the East;
Acquir'd the Arab tribes among;
Expressive, what one might call strong.
All: His friend the Baron's quite a feast
Of phrase and customs of the East;
