ACT I

No. 2: TRIO - Dorothy, Lady Vernon & Sir George


DOROTHY.
  Nay, father dear, speak not to me
In anger's cruel tone!
LADY VERNON.
 
By all the love she bears to thee -
The love that is thine own!
DOROTHY.
  Remember all thou art to me;
Remember all I am to thee;
And marvel not that hearts will ache -
For true love's sake!
DOROTHY & LADY VERNON.
  For true love's sake!
SIR GEORGE.
  Go, bid thy lover sheath his sword
And bend his stubborn knee;
Is all thy thought for thine adored,
And hast thou none for me?
LADY VERNON.
  For true love's sake a heart will sigh!
SIR GEORGE.
  For true love's sake a heart will die!
DOROTHY.
  His oath a soldier cannot break
For true love's sake!
DOROTHY & LADY VERNON.
  For true love's sake!

ENSEMBLE.

DOROTHY. LADY VERNON. SIR GEORGE.
For true love's sake a heart
will sigh,
For true love's sake a heart
will die,
 
A heart
For true love's
sake a heart will sigh,
For true love's
sake a heart will die,
will break! a heart
For true love's sake! will sigh! will die!
For true love's sake! For true love's sake! For true love's sake!
For true love's sake For true love's sake
A heart a heart will sigh!
A heart
a heart will die!
For true love's sake a heart
will break! will break!
For true love's sake will break, For true love's sake will break, For true love's sake will ache,
will break! will break! will ache
For true love's sake! For true love's sake! For true love's sake!

Exit SIR GEORGE.
