|Contents:||List and learn --
Good morrow, pretty maids --
For the merriest fellows are we --
See, see at last they come to make their choice --
Buon' giorno, signorine! --
We're called gondolieri, but that's a vagary --
And now to choose our brides! --
Are you peeping? --
Thank you gallant gondolieri --
From the sunny Spanish shore --
In enterprise of martial kind --
O rapture, when alone together --
There was a time for ever gone --
I stole the Prince --
But, bless my heart, consider my position! --
Try we life-long we can never --
Bride-groom and bride! --
When a merry maiden marries --
Kind sir, you cannot have the heart, our lives to part --
Do not give way to this uncalled-for grief --Then one of us will be a queen --
Now pray, what is the cause of this remarkable hilarity --
Replying, we sing as one individual --
For ev'ryone who feels inclined --
Come let's away-our island crown awaits me --
Now, Marco dear, my wishes hear --
Then away they go to an island fair. Of happiness the very pith --
Rising early in the morning --
Take a pair of sparkling eyes --
Here we are, at the risk of our lives --
After sailing to this land --
Dance a cachucha, fandango, bolero --
There lived a king, as I've been told --
In a contemplative fashion and a tranquil frame of mind --
With ducal pomp and ducal pride --
Thid polite attention --
On the day when I was wedded --
To help unhappy commoners --
Small titles and orders for mayors and recorders --
I am a courtier grave and serious --
Here is a case unprecedented! --
Now let the loyal lieges gather round --
Speak woman speak, we're all attention! --
The royal prince was by the king entrusted --
Luiz! Casilda! --
One more, gondolieri.
