Gilbert & Sullivan I'm Called Little Buttercup


Buttercup. (recit.)
Hail, men-o'-war's men safeguards of your nation
Here is an end, at last, of all privation;
You've got your pay spare all you can afford
To welcome Little Buttercup on board.

ARIA

I'm called Little Buttercup dear Little Buttercup,
Though I could never tell why,
But still I'm called Buttercup poor little Buttercup,
Sweet Little Buttercup I!

I've snuff and tobaccy, and excellent jacky,
I've scissors, and watches, and knives;
I've ribbons and laces to set off the faces
Of pretty young sweethearts and wives.

I've treacle and toffee, I've tea and I've coffee,
Soft tommy and succulent chops;
I've chickens and conies, and pretty polonies,
And excellent peppermint drops.

Then buy of your Buttercup dear Little Buttercup;
Sailors should never be shy;
So, buy of your Buttercup poor Little Buttercup;
Come, of your Buttercup buy!
