    Act 1
    Sung By
    Our husbands, alas! They've lock'd up in jail

    Chorus
    And they say toward ladies one should gallantly behave
    General Ollendorf
    The world to soaring genius ever quick recognition has refused!
    Symon Symonovicz, Janitsky and Saxon Officers
    Confounded cell, at last I leave thee!
    Symon Symonovicz, Janitsky and Saxon Officers
    Hurrah, hip, hurrah! the fair has begun
    Some little shopping really we ought to do
    Laura, Bronislava, Countess of Palmatica and Onouphrie
    That is the Prince Wibicki with his Secretary there!

    You love each other!
    Principals and Chorus
    Act 2
    Sung By
    I at last have found a husband
    Laura, Bronislava, Countess of Palmatica and Onouphrie
    This kiss, sweet love, our union shall cement forevermore!
    Bronislava and Janitsky
    Shall I tell her? or keep silence?
    Laura and Symon Symonovicz
    Most happy bride, for you life's skies are clearing
    General Ollendorf, Symon Symonovicz, Countess of Palmatica, Janitsky, Saxon Officers and Chorus
    One day I was perambulating along the Ganges
    General Ollendorf
    There in the chamber Polish they acted quite Mongolish
    General Ollendorf
    Wedding bells are sweetly ringing
    Principals and Chorus

    Shabby young hussy! penniless cheat!
