Roses white and roses red Tra la la la la ....
(Antonio and chorus)
We're called gondolieri
(Marco and Guiseppe)
They will never, never, never cross the sea again!
(The Duke, Duchess, Casilda
and Luiz)
And now, my love, prepare
for a magnificent surprise
(The Duke and Casilda)
Both of the babes were
strong and stout
(Don Alhambra)
Try we lifelong When a merry maiden marries
Kind sir, you cannot have
the heart
There is only one recipe for perfect happiness
(Guiseppe and Marco)
Dance a Cachucha! Gentlemen, I am the most obedient servant of one of you
Don't be so deucedly condescending Here is a case unprecedented! My own small boy I
deftly substituted!
When others claimed
thy dainty hand
(Casilda and Luiz)
