Oh, never, never, never,
Since I joined the human race,
Saw I so exquisitely fair a face.

How say you,
Is she not designed for capture?

Foreman of Jury.

We've but one word, my lord,
And that is - Rapture!

Plaintiff. (curtseying)
Your kindness, gentlemen, quite overpowers!

Jury.
We love you fondly, and would make you ours!

Ah, sly dogs! Ah, sly dogs!

We love you fondly, and would make you,
Would make you ours!

There's the Judge and we're the Jury,
Come, substantial damages!

Damages!

Silence in Court!
