Our great Mikado virtuous man
As some day it may happen
A wandering minstrel
If you want to know who we are
Gentlemen, I pray you tell me
Young man, despair
And I have journey'd for a month
Behold the Lord High Executioner
Comes a train of little ladies
Three little maids from school are we
So please you, Sir
Were you not to Ko-Ko plighted
I am so proud
With aspect stern and gloomy stride
The threaten'd cloud has pass'd away
Your revels cease
Oh fool that fleest
For he's going to marry Yum-Yum
The hour of gladness is dead and gone
Ye torrents roar!
The sun whose rays are all ablaze
A more human Mikado
Alone and yet alive
Braid the raven hair
Brightly dawns our wedding day
Here's a how-de-do!
The criminal cried
See how the fates their gifts allot
The flower that bloom in the spring
Hearts do not break!
There is beauty in the bellow of the blast
For he's gone and married Yum-Yum
Willow, Tit-Willow
