I have a song to sing, O! I didn't become an assistant-tormentor because I like assistant-tormenting
Oh, father, father, I cannot bear it! Wilfred binds Elsie's eyes with a kerchief
The prisoner comes to meet his doom Ah! 'tis but melancholy mummeing when poor heart-broken, jilted Jack Point must needs turn to Hugh Ambrose for original light humour!
Nay, sweetheart, be comforted.  This Fairfax was put a pestilent fellow. It's the song of a merryman, moping mum.
