No. 15: Finale Act III
To MIDI File

Leonora (coming forward, wearing the hat).
  So, sir — I've found you out at last!
Woodpecker (aside, astonished).
    She's got the hat!
Leonora.
  At your assurance I'm aghast!
Bunthunder (aside, astonished).
    She's got the hat!
Leonora.
  While you've been on clandestine jaunts —
Bopaddy (aside, astonished).
    She's got my hat!
Leonora.
  I've waited for you — at my aunt's!
    I've waited, waited, waited, waited —
  All day I've waited for you — at my aunt's!

Leonora. Others.
  While you've been on clandestine jaunts —   She's got the hat — she's got the hat
  I've waited for you — at my aunt's,   (We don't know how, but never mind that) —
  At my aunt's, at my aunt's   It's tat for tit, and tit for tat —
  All day I've waited for you — at my aunt's!   She's got the hat, she's got the hat!

Bunthunder.
  Forgive me — I have been unjust!
Chorus.
    She's got the hat!
Bunthunder.
  You'll overlook the past, I trust?
Chorus.
    She's got the hat!
Bunthunder.
  But, stop! The gate of Heaven shuts!
Chorus.
    She's got the hat!
Bunthunder.
  Where are the Barcelona nuts?
    The Barcelona — lona — lona —
  You have not got the Barcelona nuts!

Bunthunder. Others.
  But, stop! The gate of Heaven shuts!   Well, what of this and what of that —
  You have not got the Barcelona nuts!   Somehow or other she's got the hat —
  The Barcelona nuts, the Barcelona nuts!   It's tat for tit, and tit for tat —
      She's got the hat, she's got the hat!
      She's got the hat, she's got the hat!

All.
  So ring, ye joybells, long and loudly,
    Happy hearts together tied —
  Bridegroom's bosom swelling proudly
    As he takes his blushing bride!
    Blushing bride,
    Blushing, blushing, blushing,
Ever blushing bride!

During these lines the Bride and Bridegroom bid farewell to the guests and go towards
the house. All the others gradually move off
R., except BOPADDY, who, still carrying
the doll's head, proposes to enter the house with the bridal couple. He is brought back
by
MAGUIRE as the curtain falls.
