No. 8 - Chorus of Lamentation

MIDI File

Chorus: Oh, will they sell our master up,
Or take him off to gaol?
And on the Tea House plaster up
The notices of sale?
Whatever will become of us
If this should come to pass?
It's bound to ruin some of us,
Alas, alas, alas!
Alas, alas, alas, alas!
Geisha: Here's a dreadful blow — oh, oh!
Filling us with woe — oh, oh!
How could geisha know, oh, oh!
Fate would treat them so, oh, oh!
Pretty faces show
Chorus: Oh, oh!
Geisha: Tears that faster flow,
Chorus: Oh, oh!
Geisha: Please at prices low
Chorus: Oh, oh!
Geisha: Do not let us go,
All: Oh, oh!
Here's a dreadful blow — oh, oh!
Filling us with woe — oh, oh!
How could geisha know, oh, oh!
Fate would treat them so, oh, oh!
Whatever will become of us
If this should come to pass?
It's bound to ruin some of us,
Alas, alas, alas!
