D'oyly Carte Opera Company No I'll Be Brave

RECITATIVE, SOLO AND CHORUS: No, I'll be brave!

MABEL: (almost fainting) No, I'll be brave!
Oh, family descent,
How great thy charm, thy sway how excellent!
Come one and all, undaunted men in blue,
A crisis, now, affairs are coming to!

(Enter POLICE, marching in single file)
SERGEANT: Though in body and in mind

POLICE: Tarantara! tarantara!

SERGEANT: We are timidly inclined,

POLICE: Tarantara!

SERGEANT: And anything but blind

POLICE: Tarantara! tarantara!

SERGEANT: To the danger that's behind,

POLICE: Tarantara!

SERGEANT: Yet, when the danger's near,

POLICE: Tarantara! tarantara!

SERGEANT: We manage to appear

POLICE: Tarantara!

SERGEANT: As insensible to fear
As anybody here,
As anybody here.

POLICE: Tarantara! tarantara!, etc.
