Act 1. Won't it a pretty wedding? ; Pretty Lisa, fair and tasty --
By the mystic regulation --
Were I a king in very truth --
How would I play this part --
My goodness me! What shall I do? ; Ten minutes since I met a chap --
About a century since --
Strange the view some people hold --
Now take a card, and gaily sing --
The good Grand Duke ; A pattern to professors of monarchical autonomy --
As o'er our penny roll we sing --
When you find you're a broken-down critter --
Finale, Come hither all you people. Oh a monarch who boasts intellectual graces ; Ah, pity me, my comrades true ; Oh, listen to me, Dear ; The die is cast ; For this will be a jolly court. Act 2. As before you we defile --
Your loyalty our ducal heart-strings touches ; At the outset I may mention --
Yes, Ludwig and his Julia are mated ; Take care of him--he's much too good to live --
Now Julia, come, consider it from --
Your highness, there's a party at the door ; With fury indescribable I burn --
Now away to the wedding we go --
So ends my dream ; Broken ev'ry promise plighted --
If the light of love's lingering ember --
Come, bumper's-aye, ever-so-many --
Why, who is this approaching? --
The Prince of Monte Carlo --
His Highness we know not --
We're rigged out in magnificent array --
Take my advice when deep in debt --
Hurrah! Now away to the wedding ; Well you're a pretty kind of fellow --
Finale. Happy couples, lightly treading.
