No. 8 - Duet - Sally and Van Vuyt with Chorus

MIDI File

Van Vuyt: When the sun is aglow in the west,
'Tis the hour of the lover,
Work is over,
Ev'ry creature alive is at rest;
As the twilight is creeping,
Nature sleeping.
Now the moon, silver white,
Bids us bask in the glow of her pure light.
By the side of the sleepy canal,
You and I, 'neath the sky,
As the barges go out on the way,
To the stars they are seeming to say:
"Show your light to the sleepy canal,
As we go to and fro."
You and I, alone under the sky,
By the side of the sleepy canal!
   
Sally: Ev'ry maid in the land has a heart,
Perhaps silently aching,
Sometimes breaking.
No small wonder that cruel the smart,
And 'tis all of your doing,
Your fond wooing.
Men must be brave and true;
Tell me then you are both, I implore you!
By the side of the sleepy canal,
You and I, 'neath the sky,
As the barges go out on the way,
To the stars they are seeming to say:
"Show your light to the sleepy canal,
As we go to and fro."
You and I, alone under the sky,
By the side of the sleepy canal!
Chorus: By the side of the sleepy canal,
You and I, 'neath the sky,
As the barges go out on the way,
To the stars they are seeming to say:
"Show your light to the sleepy canal,
As we go to and fro."
Van Vuyt: You and I, alone under the sky,
Both: By the side of the sleepy canal!
