No. 9 - Song - Marquis - "Our Honeymoon."

MIDI File

Marquis: Honeymoons start as a rule
In an atmosphere calm and cool;
Bride rather timid and blushing
Bridegroom extremely gushing.
Then one or two quarrels occur
As their affections burn dim;
He sees a few failings in her,
She finds some drawbacks in him.
In our case the facts are reversed;
The quarrels are happening first.
Still here's to our honeymoon,
Badly although it's started;
What if today skies may be grey,
I see no reason for being down-hearted.
Yes, here's to our honeymoon!
Plenty of time remains;
The skies will be blue,
The sun will shine through
Before the honeymoon wanes.
   
  Honeymoons start like a dream
That's all sugar and lots of cream,
Crowded with wonderful blisses,
Laughter and smiles and kisses--
Sugar it's true melts later on,
Most of the cream disappears;
Kisses grow few, smiles are soon gone,
Laughter may give way to tears.
For my part I fully intend
The kisses to come at the end.
So here's to our honeymoon,
Badly although it's started;
What if today skies may be grey,
I see no reason for being down-hearted.
Yes, here's to our honeymoon!
Plenty of time remains;
I vow, ma cherie,
That lovers we'll be
Before the honeymoon wanes!
Ah, ma cherie, je vous adore.
Though I'm not thanked for my pains,
I'll teach you how to love me more
Before the honeymoon wanes.

No. 9a - Melos, (through dialogue)
