Main Program

Twenty love-sick maidens we
Still brooding on their mad infatuation
I cannot tell what this love may be
The Soldiers of our Queen
If you want a receipt for that popular mystery
In a doleful train two and two we walk all day
When I first put this uniform on
Am I alone and unobserved?
If you're anxious for to shine
Long years ago--fourteen, maybe
Prithee, pretty maiden--prithee
Though to marry you
Let the merry cymbals sound
Now tell us, we pray you
Heart broken at my Patience's barbarity
Stay, we implore you, before our hopes are blighted
Your maiden hearts, ah, do steel
Come, walk up, and purchase with avidity
We've been thrown over, we're aware
And are you going a ticket to buy?
Hold! Stay your hand!
True love must single-hearted be
I hear the soft note of the echoing voice
But who is this, whose god-like grace
List Reginald, whilst I confess a love
On such eyes as maidens cherish
Sad is that woman's lot who, year by year
Silvered is the raven hair
Turn, oh turn in this direction
A Magnet hung in a hardware shop
Love is a plaintive song
So go to him and say to him
It's clear that the mediaeval art
If Saphir I choose to marry
When I go out of door
I'm a Waterloo House young man
After much debate internal, I on Lady Jane decide
