No. 4: Song (Princess Toto)
MIDI File


Princess Toto.
  Like an arrow from its quiver
    Comes my love this very day.
  On the ever-running river
    Speeds my love upon his way.
  Comes to give a lover’s greeting,
    Comes to press me to his heart:
  Those who meet with such a meeting
    Surely never, never part.
  Over spotted meadows fleeting,
    Over hill and over lea,
  Flushed with joyous hope of meeting,
    Comes my love to marry me,
Comes my love to marry me,
Comes my love to marry me.
     
  I the while, my love awaiting,
    Sit in silence, prim and coy:
  Yet my heart is palpitating,
    And I can’t conceal my joy!
  Though I droop my eyes demurely,
    Though my hands I primly fold.
  Yet my beating heart will surely
    Tell the truth that they withhold.
  Tell the truth that gaily fleeting
    Over hill and over lea,
  Flushed with joyous hope of meeting,
    Comes my love to marry me,
Comes my love to marry me,
Comes my love to marry me!
