ACT 1 Sung By
Fair is Rose as bright May day Zorah and Chorus of Bridesmaids
Sir Rupert Murgatroyd His leisure and his riches Dame Hannah and Chorus
If somebody there chanced to be Rose Maybud
I know a youth who loves a little maid Rose Maybud and Robin Oakapple
From the briny seas comes young Richard Chorus of Bridesmaids
I shipped, d'ye see, in a revenue sloop Richard Dauntless
My boy, you may take it from me Robin Oakapple
The battle's roar is over, O my love! Rose Maybud and Richard Dauntless
If well his suit is sped Chorus of Bridesmaids
In sailing o'er life's ocean wide Rose Maybud, Richard Dauntless and Robin Oakapple
Cheerily carols the lark Over the cot Mad Margaret
Welcome gentry Chorus
O why am I moody and sad Sir Despard Murgatroyd
You understand? I think I do Richard Dauntless and Sir Despard Murgatroyd
Hail the bride of seventeen summers
ACT 2 Sung By
I once was as meek as a newborn lamb Robin Oakapple and Old Adam Goodheart
Happily coupled are we, you see Rose Maybud and Richard Dauntless
In bygone days I had thy love Rose Maybud and Chorus of Bridesmaids
Painted emblems of a race Robin Oakapple, Ghost of Sir Roderic Murgatroyd and Chorus
When the night wind howls in the chimney cowls Ghost of Sir Roderic Murgatroyd and Chorus
He yields! He yields! Chorus
Away, remorse! Compunction, hence! Robin Oakapple
I once was a very abandon'd person Mad Margaret and Sir Despard Murgatroyd
My eyes are fully open to my awful situation Mad Margaret, Robin Oakapple and Sir Despard Murgatroyd
There grew a little flower 'neath a great oak tree Dame Hannah and Ghost of Sir Roderic Murgatroyd
When a man has been a naughty Baronet
