No. 16 - Chorus - "The Emperor's Own"

MIDI File

Chorus: Make room for the Emperor's Own,
Imposing and splendid,
Who guard the Imperial throne
From treason intended!
With martial but maidenly mien
And movement majestic
They're always a sight to be seen,
These soldiers domestic.
For dashing appearance alone
They rank in excelsis;
But they are the Emperor's Own,
And nobody else's.
Bodyguard: Girls of the Emperor's Bodyguard we;
Shapely and beautiful soldiers to see;
Who could resist the assortment of charms
Own'd by such lovely young Ladies-at-arms?
Such Ladies-at-arms.
Surely the sight of us, foes in the field,
Dropping their rifles, will instantly yield;
Every sword will return to its case,
We shall be welcom'd with open embrace,
With open embrace!
The Emperor splendid
By us is defended
From ladies seductive and sly;
No vision of beauty
Can lure him from duty,
When we have him under our eye!
All: (Basses' words)
  The Emperor splendid
By them is defended
From ladies seductive and sly;
No vision of beauty
Can lure him from duty,
When they have him under their eye!
Oh no!
No vision of beauty
Can lure him from duty,
When they have him under their eye!
Oh no!
So no pretty girls need apply
When he's under their eye!
All: For dashing appearance alone
They rank in excelsis;
But they are the Emperor's Own,
And nobody else's.
