MIDI File

Marquis: Now listen, worthy Bobinot,
To Brevancourt at once you'll go,
According to instructions.
Other two: According to instructions.
Comte: What foolish fancy fills your brain?
Oh, are you mad or are you sane?
I draw my own deductions.
Other two: We'll draw our own deductions.
Bobinot: It all seems too absurd to be true,
There must be some mistake, Monsieur,
I beg, do pinch my leg
To see if I'm awake.
Other two: You're fairly wide awake.
All three: With these instructions you'll/I'll comply,
You're/I'm not to ask the reason why;
You're/I'm not to question this or that,
But just to play the aristocrat.
Yes, you're/I'm the man to work the plan
And carry out the plot.
Bobinot: According to instructions.
Other two:
According to instructions.
All three: According to the instructions you/I have got, you/I have got!
   
Marquis: When my domain you're safely in,
The ass will don the lion's skin,
According to instructions.
Other two: According to instructions.
Comte: But if his Lordship you disgrace
You'll very likely lose your place,
My word, there will be ructions.
Other two: We hope there won't be ructions.
Bobinot: Oh, I shall wear with dignified air
My hat and coat and sword,
While all bow low to Bobinot,
The lackey who's a lord!
Other two: The lackey who's a lord!
All three: With these instructions you'll/I'll comply,
You're/I'm not to ask the reason why;
You're/I'm not to question this or that,
But just to play the aristocrat.
Yes, you're/I'm the man to work the plan
And carry out the plot.
Bobinot: According to instructions.
Other two: According to instructions.
All three: According to the instructions you/I have got, you/I have got!
