No. 4 - Sextet - "The Yacht"

MIDI File

Girls: There's a yacht in the harbour today,
Today, they say,
Men: I'm not inclined to doubt it, girls!
In fact I've heard about it, girls!
Girls: We wonder extremely what she,
What she may be.
Men: We'll find it out to order, girls,
When once we go aboard her, girls!
Girls: The captain will land with his crew,
His crew in blue.
Contraltos: At first we think
They'll have a drink
And then to buy a cigar go,
Sopranos: We'll sell all the jolly Jack Tars,
Jack Tars cigars!
Men: They'll spend their pay
In half a day!
And we'll look into their cargo!
All: A yacht, ahoy!
A yacht, a yacht,
Full of jolly young men and pretty ladies,
Come from Cadiz, bound for Hades,
Anywhere where it's fine and hot!
A yacht, a yacht, it's the sort of a lot
That gives you joy
Never failing
When you're sailing aboard of a yacht,
Ahoy!
   
Girls: Oh the crew will be pretty young chaps,
Young chaps, perhaps,
Men: I tell you as a duty, girls!
I rather doubt their beauty, girls!
Girls: They'll treat us to wine when they come,
Or some old rum.
Men: It hasn't paid the custom, girls,
I think I wouldn't trust 'em, girls!
Girls: They'll take us to bull-fight and ball,
To ball and all.
Contraltos: They'll sing and dance
And take a chance
Of flirting, too, if you let them!
Sopranos: They'll offer us ribbons and things,
Nice things, like rings!
[Men:] Young men on yachts
Will promise lots,
But don't you wish you may get them!
All: A yacht, ahoy!
A yacht, a yacht,
Full of jolly young men and pretty ladies,
Come from Cadiz, bound for Hades,
Anywhere where it's fine and hot!
A yacht, a yacht, it's the sort of a lot
That gives you joy
Never failing
When you're sailing aboard of a yacht,
Ahoy!
