Caramel & Toto
Prince Caramel and Princess Toto
Toto.
  At last I shall marry my own,
    My own, my own, my own,
  For I love Barberini alone;
    Alone, alone, alone,
  It cannot be too widely known
At last I shall marry my own,
    At last, at last I shall marry my own.

All.
  Let everybody be gay, be gay,
    For I’m/they’re to be married today, today.
  Let everyone be gay, be gay,
    For I’m/they’re to be married today.

Caramel.
  The brigand has chosen his bride,
In a minute the knot will be tied;
To be with a brigand, a brigand allied,
Is a very, a very fine thing for a bride,
    A very fine thing for a bride.
  The brigand has chosen his bride,
The brigand has chosen his bride.

All.
  Let everybody be gay, be gay,
    For I’m/they’re to be married today, today.
  Let everyone be gay, be gay,
    For I’m/they’re to be married today.

Jelly.
  I wish that my turn it would come,
    Would come, would come, would come,
  But all of these brigands are dumb,
    Are dumb, are dumb, are dumb,
  I’d pay down a pretty large sum
If it only would make my turn come,
    If it only, it only would make my turn come.

All.
  Let everybody be gay, be gay,
    For I’m/they’re to be married today, today.
  Let everyone be gay, be gay,
    For I’m/they’re to be married today.

Floss.
  I wish that this bubble would burst.
I’m sick of it, own it I must.
When once they are married, are married, I trust
This jolly old bubble, old bubble will bust,
    This jolly old bubble will bust,
  When once they are married, I trust
This jolly old bubble will bust.

All.
  Let everybody be gay, be gay,
    For I’m/they’re to be married today, today.
  Let everyone be gay, be gay,
    For I’m/they’re to be married today.
    For I’m/they’re to be married,
For I’m/they’re to be married,
For I’m/they’re to be married today!

General dance and exeunt.
