Chorus: Away to the chateau, away from the throng,
Where the bridegroom and bride will be plighted ere long;
Where welcome shall meet them,
where cheering shall greet them,
Where friends shall entreat them all blessings in song.
Away to the chateau, away from the throng,
Where the bridegroom and bride will be plighted ere long;
Where welcome shall meet them,
where cheering shall greet them,
Where friends shall entreat them all blessings in song.
Where welcome shall meet them,
Where cheering shall greet them,
Where friends shall entreat them all blessings in song.
Erminie: Marriage is a holy union,
Angel guided from above.
Marriage should be sweet communion,
Govern'd by the God of love.
Cerise & Eugène: (her words)
  Though there may be oceans rolling
Stormily between two lives,
Some remember'd word controlling
Often hope revivifies.
All: (Eugène's words)
  When the fates are black as raven,
When the sun of hope has set,
Oft the ship-wreck'd gain a haven,
Why not love, it may be yet.
Chorus: Love prevails in ev'ry fashion,
Love the tyrant may control.
Love remains the ruling passion,
Love predominates the soul.
Hark, the soldiers here again return!
Hark, what may it mean-- we soon shall learn!
Capt. Delaunay & Soldiers:
  All for glory the soldier's life;
From the conflict scorning e'er to flee,
The hero's fame his aim in strife,
In love, in war the victor he.
Chorus: All for glory the soldier's life;
From the conflict scorning e'er to flee,
The hero's fame his aim in strife,
In love, in war the victor he.
Delaunay: Be not alarm'd, be not alarm'd,
We're of two thieves in chase,
From prison 'scaped, from prison 'scaped,
We've tracked them to this place.
Marquis: Thieves? then they're the same, depend,
Who stopp'd and robbed my noble friend,
And his companion; see their plight!
Erminie: Poor things, no doubt, papa is right!
'Twas they molested, rifled, mobbed,
Despoiled, ill-treated, beat and robbed.
Delaunay: They are doubtless the men,
Should you know them again?
Ravannes: Oh yes, oh yes, the one is a gentleman quite;
Delaunay: He's the worst of the two,
Cadeaux: Quite so, that's right.
Ernest: (entering)
  Thank fate, at length I've found my way.
Is this the Lion D'Or, I pray?
Ravannes: Quick, Sergeant, seize the villians pray!
Cadeaux: Be careful he don't get away!
Ernest: No, no, believe me,
Marquis: Seize the thief!
Ravannes & Cadeaux:
  Yes, seize the thief!
Chorus: Seize him, seize him, bind the thief!
Make secure the robber chief!
Seize him, seize him, bind the thief!
Make secure the robber chief!
Marquis: With that vile wretch to gaol begone,
And to the Chateau now lead on.
Chorus: Away, away, away, away, away, away to the Chateau.
Away to the chateau, away from the throng,
Where the bridegroom and bride will be plighted ere long;
Where welcome shall meet them,
where cheering shall greet them,
Where friends shall entreat them all blessings in song.
Away to the chateau, away from the throng,
Where the bridegroom and bride will be plighted ere long;
Where welcome shall meet them,
where cheering shall greet them,
Where friends shall entreat them all blessings in song.
Where welcome shall meet them,
Where friends shall entreat them all blessings, all blessings in song,
in song, in song.
