Rehearsal Section 12 Songs and Notes

  • Braid the Raven Hair

Braid the raven hair

PITTI & PEEP

Braid the raven hair,

Weave the supple tresses

Deck the maiden fair

In her loveliness

Paint the pretty face

Dye the coral lip

Empahsize the grace

Of her ladyship!

Art and nature, thus allied

Go to make a pretty bride!

Art and nature, thus allied,

Go to make a pretty brided!

PITTI SING

Sit with downcast eye

Let it brim with dew

Try if you can cry

We will do so, too.

When you’re summond, start

Like a frightened roe

Flutter, little heart, colour come and go!

Modesty at mariage tide

Well becomes a pretty bride!

Modesty at marriage tide

Well becomes a pretty bride!

PITTI & PEEP

Braid the raven hair

Weave the supple tresses

Deck the maiden fair

In her loveliness

Paint her pretty face

Dye the coral lip

Emphasize the grace of her ladyship!

Art and nature, thus allied

Go to make a pretty bride!

Art and nature, thus allied, go to make a pretty bride!

  • The Sun Whose Rays

The Sun Whose Rays Are All Ablaze

The Sun Whose Rays Are All Ablaze – music track

YUM-YUM

The sun whose rays are all ablaze with ever living glory

Does not deny his mjaesty he scorns to tell a story!

He don’t exclaim “I blush for shame, so kindly be indulgent!”

But fierce and bold, in fiery gold, he glories all effulgent!

I mean to rule the earth as he the sky

We really know our worth the sun and I!

I mean to rule the earth as he the sky

We really know our worth, the sun and I!

Observe his flame, that placid dame, the moon’s celestial highness

There’s not a trace upon her face of diffidence or shyness

She borrows light that thro’ the night, mankind may all acclaim her,

And truth to tell, she lights up well, so I for one don’t blame her

Ah, pray make no mistake, we are not shy;

we’re very wide awake! The moon and I!

Ah, pray make no mistake, we are not shy;

we’re very wide awake! The moon and I!
