No. 14: Trio (Toto, Doro & Caramel)
MIDI File

Toto.
  So take my hand, it is agreed;
A brigand you will be indeed;
    It is a life you will adore.
  (aside.) I’m sure I’ve seen his face before,
    I'm sure, I’m sure I’ve seen his face before,
    I’m sure I’ve seen his face before.

Doro.
  Three days ago the knot was tied
Which constituted her my bride;
    Yet when we meet she isn’t sure,
But ‘thinks she’s seen my face before’,
    But ‘thinks she’s seen, she's seen my face before,
    She thinks she’s seen, she's seen my face before’.

Caramel.
  This conduct comes within the range
Of that which is considered strange;
    She likes him well, and, what is more,
She ‘thinks she’s seen his face before’,
She likes him well, and, what is more,
She ‘thinks she’s seen his face before’,
She ‘thinks she’s seen his face before,
She’s seen his face before.'

All.
    Oh! matter perplexing,
Annoying and vexing,
  All over the world, the world I will/she’ll explore —
    I’ll/she’ll travel and travel,
This knot to unravel,
  And learn where I’ve/she’s met him/me,
   
  I’ve/she’s met him/me before,
    Where we/they have met,
    Where we/they have met before.

Toto. Doro. Caramel.
  So take my hand, it is    agreed;   Three weeks ago the    knot was tied   This conduct comes    within the range,
  A brigand you will be    indeed;   That constituted her my    bride;   Of that which is    considered strange,
  It is a life you will
   adore.
  But now she is not sure    but thinks   She likes, she likes him    well, and thinks
  A life you will
   adore.
  She’s seen my face    before.   She’s seen his face    before.
  So take my hand, it is    agreed;   I'll take her hand, it is    agreed,   This conduct comes    within the range,
  A brigand you will be    indeed;   A brigand I shall be    indeed;   Of that which is    considered strange,
  It is a life you will
   adore.
  It is a life I shall
   adore.
  She’s seen his face    before.
  It is a life, a life you will
   adore.
  It is a life, a life I shall
   adore.
  She likes him well and thinks she's seen his face,
  It is a life   It is a life   She’s seen his face,
     you will adore!      I shall adore!      his face before!

Exit CARAMEL.
