Eagle high"

King.
This ceremonial our wish displays
To copy all Great Britain's courtly ways.
Though lofty aims catastrophe entail,
We'll gloriously succeed or nobly fail!

UNACCOMPANIED CHORUS

All.
Eagle High in Cloudland soaring —
Sparrow twittering on a reed —
Tiger in the jungle roaring —
Frightened fawn in grassy mead —
Let the eagle, not the sparrow,
Be the object of your arrow —
Fix the tiger with your eye —
Pass the fawn in pity by.
Glory, glory,
Glory then will crown the day —
Glory, glory, anyway!
Glory, anyway!
Glory, anyway!
Glory then will crown the day —
Crown the day —
Glory then will crown the day —
Crown the day —
Crown the day —
Glory then will crown the day —
Crown the day —
Crown the day —
Glory, glory then will crown the day!

Exit all.
