MIDI Symbol MIDI File [74KB, 10' 28"]


Claude Flemming as Ethais and
Amy Evans as Selene.
Ethais.
  When a knight loves ladye —
        (Hey, but a maid is a sorry little jade!)
  He sighs and he sings lackadaydee —
Selene & Ethais.
          Hey, lackadaydee, O!
Ethais.
      Of a love life-long
He'll sing a song —
Both.
        (Hey, but a maid is a sorry little jade!)
Ethais.
      Of a love supreme
He dreams a dream —
Both.
          Hey, lackadaydee, O!
Ethais.
      And little recks he in his love-lorn soul
That, ere by and by, will the tocsin toll —

Selene. Ethais.
      Ding dong,
  Ding dong,    
      Ding dong,
  Ding dong,    
  Ding dong,   Ding dong,
  Ding dong,   Ding dong,
  Ding dong!   Ding dong!
  Hey, lackadaydee, O!   Hey, lackadaydee, O!

Ethais.
  When a maid grows weary —
        (Hey, but a maid is a sorry little jade!)
  O sad his heart and dreary —
Selene & Ethais.
          Hey, lackadaydee, O!
Ethais.
      Then day by day
He wilts away —
Both.
        (Hey, but a maid is a sorry little jade!)
Ethais.
      With one sad sigh
He droops to die —
Both.
          Hey, lackadaydee, O!
Ethais.
      Her love his life - both yield their due,
And the tocsin tolling tolls for two!

Selene. Ethais.
      Ding dong,
  Ding dong,    
      Ding dong,
  Ding dong,    
  Ding dong,   Ding dong,
  Ding dong,   Ding dong,
  Ding dong!   Ding dong!
  Hey, lackadaydee, O!   Hey, lackadaydee, O!

Exeunt ETHAIS and SELENE together into her bower.
