No. 30 (No. 18a) - Quartette - Jolly young Jacks are we

MIDI File

Fairfax: Half round the world we've been, my boys,
On pleasure and on duty,
At ev'ry port we've known the joys
Of some bewitching beauty!
[Cunningham:] The simple maid from sunny France,
Who blush'd and seemed to falter,
The Spanish girl we met by chance
When strolling through Gibraltar.
Cuddy: Give me a girl from any clime,
And I'll adore her for a time!
Jolly young Jacks are we,
Merry of heart and gay!
Sons of the rolling sea,
Homage to beauty pay.
What if her eyes are dark?
What if her eyes are blue?
Beauty is fair, ev'rywhere,
If Beauty's the girl for you!
   
Fairfax: We've seen all sorts of sizes, too,
Some rather quaintly dress'd ones;
But give me eyes of English blue,
Believe me, they're the best ones!
[Cunningham:] That Chinese girl I couldn't stand
With feet of small dimensions,
Or Gretchen from the Fatherland.
Who ask'd us our intentions.
Cuddy: Well, any you don't care about
Pass on to me I'll take them out!
All: Jolly young Jacks are we,
Merry of heart and gay!
Sons of the rolling sea,
Homage to beauty pay.
What if her eyes are dark?
What if her eyes are blue?
Beauty is fair, ev'rywhere,
If Beauty's the girl for you!
Jolly young Jacks are we,
Merry of heart and gay!
Sons of the rolling sea,
Homage to beauty pay.
What if her eyes are dark?
What if her eyes are blue?
Beauty is fair, ev'rywhere,
If Beauty's the girl for you!
