Gilbert & Sullivan I Am The Captain Of The Pinafore


Captain.
My gallant crew, good morning!

Chorus. (saluting)
Sir, good morning!

Captain.
I hope you're all quite well.

Chorus. (as before)
Quite well; and you, sir?

Captain.
I am in reasonable health, and happy
To meet you all once more.

Chorus. (as before)
You do us proud, sir!

Captain.
I am the Captain of the Pinafore!

Chorus.
And a right good captain, too!

Captain.
You're very, very good,
And be it understood,
I command a right good crew.

Chorus.
We're very, very good,
And be it understood,
He commands a right good crew.

Captain.
Though related to a peer,
I can hand, reef, and steer,
And ship a selvagee;
I am never known to quail
At the fury of a gale,
And I'm never, never sick at sea!

Chorus.
What, never?

Captain.
No, never!

Chorus.
What, never?

Captain.
Hardly ever!

Chorus.
He's hardly ever sick at sea!
Then give three cheers, and one cheer more,
For the hardy Captain of the Pinafore!
Then give three cheers, and one cheer more,
For the Captain of the Pinafore!

Captain.
I do my best to satisfy you all

Chorus.
And with you we're quite content.

Captain.
You're exceedingly polite,
And I think it only right
To return the compliment.

Chorus.
We're exceedingly polite,
And he thinks it's only right
To return the compliment.

Captain.
Bad language or abuse,
I never, never use,
Whatever the emergency;
Though "bother it" I may
Occasionally say,
I never use a big, big D

Chorus.
What, never?

Captain.
No, never!

Chorus.
What, never?

Captain.
Hardly ever!

Chorus.
Hardly ever swears a big, big D
Then give three cheers, and one cheer more,
For the well-bred Captain of the Pinafore!
Then give three cheers, and one cheer more,
For the Captain of the Pinafore!
