D'oyly Carte Opera Company Away Away! My Heart's On Fire

TRIO: Away, away! my heart's on fire

Away, away! my heart's on fire;
I burn, this base deception to repay.
This very night my vengeance dire
Shall glut itself in gore. Away, away!

Away, away! ere I expire
I find my duty hard to do to-day!
My heart is filled with anguish dire,
It strikes me to the core. Away, away!

With falsehood foul
He tricked us of our brides.
Let vengeance howl;
The Pirate so decides.
Our nature stern
He softened with his lies,
And, in return,
To-night the traitor dies.

Yes, yes! to-night the traitor dies!
Yes, yes! to-night the traitor dies!

To-night he dies!

Yes, or early to-morrow.

His girls likewise?

They will welter in sorrow.

The one soft spot

In their natures they cherish--

And all who plot

To abuse it shall perish!

To-night he dies...
