Midi Symbol MIDI File [10KB, 1' 41"]


Ralph.
Farewell, my own,
Light of my life, farewell!
For crime unknown
I go to a dungeon cell.

Josephine.
I will atone.
In the meantime farewell!
And all alone
Rejoice in your dungeon cell!

Sir Joseph.
A bone, a bone
I'll pick with this sailor fell;
Let him be shown
At once to his dungeon cell.

Hebe, Dick, Boatswain & Carpenter.
He'll hear no tone
Of the maiden he loves so well!
No telephone
Communicates with his cell!

Buttercup. (mysteriously)
But when is known
The secret I have to tell,
Wide will be thrown
The door of his dungeon cell.

Josephine. Hebe. Buttercup. Ralph. Sir Joseph. Others. Chorus.
Farewell,
my own,
He'll hear
no tone
He'll hear
no tone
Farewell,
my own,
He'll hear
no tone
He'll hear
no tone
 
Light of my life, farewell! Of her he loves so well! Of her he loves so well! Light of my life, farewell! Of her he loves so well! Of her he loves so well!  
And all
alone
Let him be
shown
For crime
unknown
For crime
unknown
Let him be
shown
For crime
unknown
For crime
unknown
Rejoice in
your dungeon,

At once to
a dungeon,

He goes to
a dungeon,
I go to
a dungeon,
At once to
his dungeon,
He goes to
a dungeon,
He goes to
a dungeon,
your dungeon
cell!
a dungeon
cell!
a dungeon
cell!
a dungeon
cell!
his dungeon
cell!
a dungeon
cell!
a dungeon
cell!

Ralph is led off in custody.
