Contents Little maid of Arcadee -- When first my old, old love I knew -- When I, good friends, was call'd to the bar -- With a sense of deep emotion -- O gentlemen, listen I pray -- Time was, when love and I -- Welcome joy! adieu to sadness -- My name is John Wellington Wells -- Dear friends, take pity on my lot -- We sail the ocean blue -- I'm called little Buttercup -- A maiden fair to see
-- I am the captain of the Pinafore -- I am the monarch of the sea -- When I was a lad -- Never mind the why and wherefore -- He is an Englishman -- Oh, better far to live and die -- Poor wand'ring one -- I am the very model of a modern Major-General -- When the foeman bares his steel -- When you had left our pirate fold -- When a felon's not engaged in his employment -- With
cat-like tread -- I cannot tell what this love may be -- If you want a receipt -- Am I alone, and unobserved? -- Prithee, pretty maiden -- Sad is that woman's lot -- A magnet hung in a hardware shop -- So go to him -- When I go out of door -- Tripping hither, triping thither -- Loudly let the trumpet bray -- The law is the true embodiment -- Spurn not the nobly born -- When I went to
the bar -- When all night long a chap remains -- When Britain really rul'd the waves -- Oh, foolish fay -- Love, unrequited -- If you go in -- If you give me your attention -- Expressive glances -- I am a maiden -- A lady fair -- Would you know the kind of maid -- Whene'er I spoke -- This helmet, I suppose -- A wand'ring minstrel I -- Behold the Lord High Executioner! -- As some day
it may happen -- Three little maids -- So please you, sir -- For he's going to marry Yum-Yum -- The sun, whose rays -- Brightly dawns our wedding day -- Here's a how-de-do -- Miya sama -- A more humane Mikado -- The flowers that bloom in the spring -- Alone, and yet alive -- On a tree by a river (Titwillow) -- There is beauty in the bellow of the blast -- If somebody there chanced to
be -- I shipped, d'ye see -- My boy, you may take it from me -- Cheerily carols the lark over the cot -- When the night wind howls -- I once was a very abandoned person -- My eyes are fully open -- When maiden loves -- Is life a boon? -- I have a song to sing O! -- I've jibe and joke -- Were I thy bride -- Oh! a private buffoon -- Strange adventure -- A man who would woo a fair maid
-- When a wooer goes a-wooing -- We're called gondolieri -- In enterprise of martial kind -- I stole the prince -- When a merry maiden marries -- Then one of us will be a queen -- Take a pair of sparkling eyes -- Dance a cachucha -- There lived a king -- I am a courtier grave and serious -- In ev'ry mental lore -- Society has quite forsaken all her wicked courses -- So ends my
Subject Operas -- Excerpts -- Vocal scores with piano.
