INEZ: JOSÉ: SANCHO:
'Tis very hard to choose
A captain of banditti!
Ha! Ha!
Banditti
Ha! Ha!
Banditti
Ha! Ha!Ha! Ha!
A captain of banditti,
Banditti, banditti!
A captain of banditti,
Banditti, banditti!
A captain of banditti,
Banditti, banditti!
But one the prize must lose,
Which is, I admit, a pity!
Ha! Ha!
A pity!
Ha! Ha!
A pity!
Ha! Ha!Ha! Ha!
Well, that does seem a pity-
A pity! A pity!
Well, that does seem a pity-
A pity! A pity!
Well, that does seem a pity-
A pity! A pity!
When free, ma'am,
Take me, ma'am,
Good-looking I am, and witty.
Take me, ma'am,
And he, ma'am,
May wed either Polly or Kitty!
My honey!
I've money.
I'm rough, but I am true-gritty!
Devoted!
No bloated
Aristocrat in the city!
All offers I refuse
With strict equanimity,
Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha!
-nimity,
Ha! Ha!Ha! Ha!
With strict equanimity, -nimity,
With strict equanimity!
With strict equanimity, -nimity,
With strict equanimity!
With strict equanimity, -nimity,
With strict equanimity!
Your eyes, ma'am,
A prize, ma'am,
Would win from an Art Committee!
Oh, we two,
Might flee to
New Zealand or Otaheite!
Are many
Or any
Like you in Palazzo Pitti?
Hub banished
Or vanished
Take José pendite lite!
But one the prize can win,
Which is, we admit, a pity!
Ha! Ha!
A pity!
Ha! Ha!
A pity!
Ha! Ha!Ha! Ha!
Which is, we admit, a pity! Which is, we admit, a pity! Which is, we admit, a pity!
A pity!
A pity!A pity!
A pity!
A pity!A pity!
A pity!
Ha! Ha!Ha! Ha!
And so we end the ditty!
The ditty!The ditty!
The ditty!
The ditty!The ditty!
The ditty!
The ditty!The ditty!
And so we end the ditty!End the ditty!End the ditty!
The ditty!The ditty!
The ditty!
The ditty!The ditty!
The ditty!
The ditty!The ditty!
The ditty!
And so we end the ditty! And so we end the ditty! And so we end the ditty!

Dance and Exeunt.
