Gilbert & Sullivan - Farewell, My Own!

Ralph.
Farewell, my own,
Light of my life, farewell!
For crime unknown
I go to a dungeon cell.

Josephine.
I will atone.
In the meantime farewell!
And all alone
Rejoice in your dungeon cell!

Sir Joseph.
A bone, a bone
I'll pick with this sailor fell;
Let him be shown
At once to his dungeon cell.

Hebe, Dick, Boatswain & Carpenter.
He'll hear no tone
Of the maiden he loves so well!
No telephone
Communicates with his cell!

Buttercup. (mysteriously)
But when is known
The secret I have to tell,
Wide will be thrown
The door of his dungeon cell.

MEDLEY

Josephine.
Farewell, my own
Light of my life, farewell!
And all alone
Rejoice in your dungeon,
Your dungeon cell!

Hebe.
He'll hear no tone
Of her he loves so well!
Let him be shown
At once to a dungeon
A dungeon cell!

Buttercup.
He'll hear no tone
Of her he loves so well!
For crime unknown
He goes to a dungeon
A dungeon cell!

Ralph.
Farewell, my own
Light of my life, farewell!
For crime unknown
I go to a dungeon,
A dungeon cell!

Sir Joseph.
He'll hear no tone
Of her he loves so well!
Let him be shown
At once to his dungeon
His dungeon cell!

Others.
He'll hear no tone
Of her he loves so well!
For crime unknown
He goes to a dungeon
A dungeon cell!

Chorus.
For crime unknown
He goes to a dungeon
A dungeon cell!

(Ralph is led off in custody.)

UNISON

Sir Joseph.
My pain and my distress
Again it is not easy to express.
My amazement, my surprise,
Again you may discover from my eyes.

All.
How terrible the aspect of his eyes!
