Phyllis.
Soon as we may,
Off and away!
We’ll commence our journey airy –
Happy are we –
As you can see,
Every one is now a fairy!

Phyllis, Iolanthe & Queen.
Every, every, every,
Every one is now a fairy!
Though as a general rule we know
Two strings go to every bow,
Make up your minds that grief ‘twill bring
If you’ve two beaux to every string.

All.
Though as a general rule we know
Two strings go to every bow,
Make up your minds that grief ‘twill bring
If you’ve two beaux to every string.

Lord Chancellor.
Up in the sky,
Ever so high,
Pleasures come in endless series;
We will arrange
Happy exchange –
House of Peers for House of Peris!

Lord Tolloller, Lord Mountararat & Lord Chancellor.
Peris, Peris, Peris,
House of Peers for House of Peris!
Up in the air, sky-high, sky-high,
Free from Wards in Chancery,
I/He will be surely happier for
I’m/He’s such a susceptible Chancellor.

All.
Up in the air, sky-high, sky-high,
Free from Wards in Chancery,
I/He will be surely happier for
I’m/He’s such a susceptible Chancellor.
