If you want to know who we are --
Gentlemen, I pray you tell me --
A wand'ring minstrel I --
Our great Mikado, virtuous man --
Young man, despair --
And I have journey'd for a month --
Behold the Lord High Executioner! --
As someday it may happen that a victim must be found --
Comes a train of little ladies --
Three little maids from school are we --
So please you, Sir, we much regret --
Were you not to Ko-Ko plighted --
I am so proud, if I allowed --
With aspect stern and gloomy stride --
The threaten'd cloud has pass'd away. Your revels cease! Assist me, all of you! --
Oh, fool, that flee-est my hallow'd joys! --
For he's going to marry Yum-Yum --
The hour of gladness is dead and gone --
Ye torrents roar! Ye tempests howls! --
Braid the raven hair, weave the supple tresses --
The sun whose rays are all ablaze --
Brightly dawns our wedding day --
Here's how-de-do! --
Miya sama, miya sama, o n'mma no maye ni --
From ev'ry kind of man obedience I expect --
A more humane Mikado never did in Japan exist --
The criminal cried as he dropp'd him down --
See how the fates their gifts allot --
The flowers that bloom in the spring, tra la. Alone and yet alive --
Hearts do not break! They sting and ache --
On a tree by a river a little tom tit --
There is beauty in the bellow of the blast --
For he's gone and married Yum-Yum.
