Midi Symbol MIDI File [19KB, 1' 45"]

Plaintiff.
Oh, joy unbounded,
With wealth surrounded,
The knell is sounded
Of grief and woe.

Counsel.
With love devoted
On you he's doated,
To castle moated
Away they go.

Defendant.
I wonder whether
They'll live together
In marriage tether
In manner true?

Usher.
It seems to me, sir,
Of such as she, sir,
A judge is he, sir,
And a good judge too!
