So be it! I submit! My fate is sealed.
(Falls on trap c.)
Be happy all—leave me to my despair—
All quit their present partners, and rejoin their old lovers. Sir Marmaduke leaves Mrs. Partlet, and goes to Lady Sangazure (l. c.) Aline leaves Dr. Daly, and goes to Alexis (r. c.) Dr. Daly leaves Aline, and goes to Constance (r.) Counsel leaves Constance, and goes to Mrs. Partlet (l.) All the chorus make a corresponding change.
Oh, my adored one
Come to my mansion, all of you! At least
Sir Marmaduke, Lady Sangazure, Alexis and Aline.
Now to the banquet we press—
Now for the eggs and the ham—
Now for the mustard and cress—
Now for the strawberry jam!
|Chorus||Now to the banquet, etc.|
