No. 10 - Chorus - "Prizes"

MIDI File

Chorus: Now the speechifying's done,
And the prizes we have won
Have been given for our labour and invention,
Quite a number of us rise
To the honour of a prize,
And the rest have each an honourable mention.
Ladies: Some have presentation spades,
Trowels, too, with plated blades,
Men: Or artistic copper cans for holding water.
Ladies: There are prizes ranging up
To the College silver cup,
Men: Which the Countess should have given to her daughter.
All: Now the speechifying's done,
And the prizes we have won
Have been given for our labour and invention,
Quite a number of us rise
To the honour of a prize,
And the rest have each an honourable mention.
Quite a number of us rise
To a prize.
