Overture
Twenty love-sick maidens we
Still brooding on their mad infatuation!
I cannot tell what this love may be
Twenty love-sick maidens we
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
Twenty love-sick maidens we
When I first put this uniform on
Am I alone and unobserved?
If you're anxious for to shine in the high aesthetic..
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 that's all...
On such eyes as maidens cherish
Sad is a 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, with compliment ironical
It's clear that the mediaeval art alone retains...
If Saphir I choose to marry, I shall be fixed...
When I go out of the door
I'm a Waterloo House young man
After much debate internal, I on Lady Jane decide
Overture
I Search throughout the panorama
2. Now hearken to my strict command
3. Today we meet...Ida was a twelve-month old
4. From the distant panorama...We are warriors three
If you give me your attention
6. P'raps if you address the lady most politely
7. Towards the empyrean heights
8. Mighty maiden with a mission
9. Minerva...Oh, goddess wise
10. Gently, gently, evidently
11. I am a maiden, cold and stately
12. The world is but a broken toy
13. A lady fair, of lineage high
The woman of the wisest wit
15. Now would you like to rule the roost
16. Merrily ring the luncheon bell
17. Would you know the kind of maid
18. Oh, joy! Our chief is sav'd
19. We may remark, tho' nothing can dismay us
20. Death to the invader
I built upon a rock
Whene'er I spoke sarcastic joke
23. When anger spreads his wing
This helmet I suppose
25. This is our duty plain
26. With joy abiding
