MIDI File

Sir Miles: Yoicks ho! were I younger
I'd teach you to dance.
Go, die in your hunger
To slight such a chance!
Stand up to her, Harry,
And never be shy,
You're going to marry,
I would it were I,
You're going to marry,
I would it were I.
Chorus: 'Tis for us to look down and hush;
Let the maiden bridle and blush,
But the happy lover when once 'tis over,
Let him ever thereafter hush, hush, hush.
Molly: Don't think I am bashful,
Or wanting in taste;
My arm holds a sashful
Of beautiful waist.
Her lips are a chalice
I'm longing to taste,
And thus my sweet Alice
I s wholly embraced.
Alice: Before all our friends here!
Fie, Harry, for shame!
I trust that it ends here
For yours is the blame.
I'm certain for ever
my poor cheeks will blaze;
I'll never, no never
submit to such ways.
Chorus: 'Tis for us to look down and hush;
Let the maiden bridle and blush,
But the happy lover when once 'tis over,
Let him ever thereafter hush, hush, hush.
Molly (in trio): Kiss, love, and never tell.
You must own we did it well,
Never fairer chance befell
merry youth and pretty maid;
Never mind who's looking on.
Never count the kiss that's done,
Play the game till it is won;
Do not be, do not be afraid.
Chorus: Kiss, lad, and never tell,
You must own you did it well,
Never fairer chance befell
merry youth and pretty maid;
Never mind who's looking on.
Never count the kiss that's done,
Play the game till it is won;
Do not be, do not be afraid.
Molly & Alice: Kiss, lad, and never tell,
You must own you did it well,
Never fairer chance befell
merry youth and pretty maid;
Never mind who's looking on.
Never count the kiss that's done,
Play the game till it is won;
Do not be, do not be afraid.
Chorus: Play the game till it is won,
And do not be afraid.
