D'oyly Carte Opera Company Stay We Must Not Lose Our Senses

RECITATIVE AND CHORUS: Stay, we must not lose our
senses

FREDERIC: Stay, we must not lose our senses;
Men who stick at no offences
Will anon be here!
Piracy their dreadful trade is;
Pray you, get you hence, young ladies,
While the coast is clear (FREDERIC and MABEL retire)

GIRLS: No, we must not lose our senses,
If they stick at no offences
We should not be here!
Piracy their dreadful trade is--
Nice companions for young ladies!
Let us disap--

(During this chorus the PIRATES have entered
stealthily, and formed in a semicircle behind the
GIRLS. As the GIRLS move to go off, each PIRATE seizes
a GIRL. KING seizes EDITH and ISABEL, SAMUEL seizes
KATE.)

GIRLS: Too late!

PIRATES: Ha, ha!

GIRLS: Too late!

PIRATES: Ho, ho!
Ha, ha, ha, ha! Ho, ho, ho, ho!

Here's a first-rate opportunity
To get married with impunity,
And indulge in the felicity
Of unbounded domesticity.
You shall quickly be parsonified,
Conjugally matrimonified,
By a doctor of divinity
Who is located in this vicinity.

GIRLS: We have missed our opportunity
Of escaping with impunity;
So farewell to the felicity
Of our maiden domesticity!
We shall quickly be parsonified,
Conjugally matrimonified,
By a doctor of divinity,
Who is located in this vicinity.

ALL: By a doctor of divinity,
Who resides in this vicinity,
By a doctor, a doctor, a doctor of divinity, of
divinity.
