MIDI File

Enter wedding procession with KING, PRINCE DORO, PRINCESS TOTO, etc. COURT all dancing.

Toto.
  Ah! Ah!
    Banish sorrow
Till tomorrow,
  Let me not rejoice alone;
    Rob from pleasure
All it’s treasure,
  For my love is all my own.
    Banish reason
For a season,
  Place King Folly on his throne,
    Fairest flowers
Deck the hours,
  For my love is all my own.
    Banish sorrow,
Banish sorrow
Till tomorrow,
Banish sorrow,
  For my love is all my own,
    Banish reason
For a season,
  Place King Folly on his throne,
    Ah! Ah! Ah!

Bridesmaids.
    Banish sorrow
Till tomorrow,
  Her true love is all her own,
    Rob from pleasure
All his treasure,
  For her true love is all her own!

Toto.
    Ah!
  Men tell of vows that droop and perish,
    Ere yet the spring of life is past;
  Within my heart thy love I’ll cherish:
    While it beats that love will last.

Bridesmaids.
  Men tell of vows that droop and perish,
    Ere yet the spring of life is past;

Toto & Doro.
  Within my heart thy love I’ll cherish:
    While it beats that love will last.

Toto.
  Ah! That love shall last,
  That love, that love shall last,
    Ah!

Bridesmaids.
    Banish sorrow
Till tomorrow,
  Her true love is all her own,
    Rob from pleasure
All his treasure,
  For her true love is all her own!

Toto.
    Ah, ah!
  All my own, all my own,
My true love is all my own.

Toto. Doro & Chorus.
    Ah!   Banish sorrow till tomorrow,
    Ah!   Banish sorrow till tomorrow,
  Ah! All my own,      
        Her true love,
Her true love is
    all my own,     all her own,
    my own, all my own!     her own, her own!

They dance off, leaving TOTO and DORO.
