ACT I

No. 9: ENTRANCE OF PURITANS

Enter PURITANS.

CHORUS OF PURITANS.
  Down with princes, down with peoples!
Down with churches, down with steeples!
    Down with love and down with marriage!
Down with all who keep a carriage!
      Down with lord and down with lady —
Up with everything that's shady!
       
  Down with life and down with laughter!
    Down with landlords, down with land!
  Whom the soil belongs to after,
    We could never understand!
  Pleasure — we can do without it;
    Down with Court and down with king;
  And — just while we are about it —
    Down with every blessed thing!
