Rehearsal Section 19 Songs and Notes

  • A vs. B

AvsB

MIKADO

See how the Fates their gifts allot,

For A is happy, B is not

Yet B is worthy, I dare say

Of more prosperity than A!

PITTI, POOH & KO-KO

Is B more worthy?

KATISHA

I should say he’s worth a great deal more than A

MIKADO, PITTI, POOH, KO-KO, & KATISHA

Yet A is happy, oh so happy! Laughing, ha ha!

Chaffing, ha! Ha! Nectar quaffing, ha! Ha! Ha!

Ever joyous ever gay, happy undeserving A!

Ever joyous ever gay, happy undeserving A!

PITTI, POOH, & KO-KO

If I were Fortune which I’m not

Be should enjoy A’s happy lot

And A should die in miserie,

That is, assuming I am B.

KATISHA & MIKADO

But should A perish?

PITTI, POOH, & KO-KO

That should he,

Of course, assuming I am B.

B should be happy! Oh so happy!

Laughing ha, ha! Chaffing ha! Ha!

Nectar quaffing Ha! Ha! Ha!

But condemned to die is he

Wretched, meritorious B!

But condemn’d to die is he,

Wretched, meritorious B!
