Hark, the hour of ten is sounding Chorus
When first my old, old love I knew The Defendant
All hail great judge Chorus
When, I good friends, was called to the bar The Learned Judge and Chorus
Swear thou the jury (Recitative) Counsel for the Plaintiff and Usher
Where is the plaintiff? (Recitative) Counsel for the Plaintiff and Usher
Comes the broken flower Bridesmaids
O'er the season vernal Plaintiff
Oh, never, never, never The Learned Judge
May it please you, my lud (Recitative and aria) Counsel for the Plaintiff and All
That she is reeling The Learned Judge, Foreman of the Jury, Plaintiff and All
Oh, gentlemen, listen, I pray The Defendant and Bridesmaids
A nice dilemma we have here The Learned Judge, Counsel for the Plaintiff, The Defendant and Plaintiff
I love him-I love him Plaintiff and The Defendant
The question, gentlemen (Recitative) The Learned Judge, Counsel for the Plaintiff and All
Oh, joy unbounded (Finale) All
