No. 9a: Finale Act I (Toto & Chorus)
MIDI File

Toto.
  A hat and a bright little feather,
    A gun on my shoulder – so;
  A dagger in sheath of leather,
    A pistol for a foe;
  Like a daring mountain ranger,
    From rock to rock I bound;
  In the foremost ranks of danger,
    Your Toto will be found.
    Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!

Chorus.
  Then away to the mountain brow,
    With rifle and six-shooter;
  It is the life of lives, I vow!

Toto.
  Then, then away to the mountain brow,
Then away to the mountain brow,
The life of lives, I vow, I vow,
    The life of a brave freebooter.

Tenors & Basses.
  The life of lives, I vow,
    'Tis the life,
The life of a brave freebooter.

Toto.
  The life of lives, I vow, I vow,
It is the life of lives,
It is the life of lives I vow!

Chorus.
    Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!

Toto, Jelly & Chorus.
  Then away to the mountain brow,
    With rifle and six-shooter;
  The life of lives, I vow,
    Is the life of a brave freebooter.
  Away to the mountain brow,
    With rifle and six-shooter;
  The life of lives, I vow,
    Is the life of a brave freebooter.
  Away to the mountain brow,
    With rifle and six-shooter;
  The life of lives, I vow,
The life of lives, I vow,
    Is the life of a brave freebooter.
    Then away, away!

As they are going the act drop falls.
