The Overture

  Mikado image

A wand'ring minstrel, I...

  Mikado image

...a thing of shreds and patches...

  Mikado image

...of ballads, songs, and snatches...

  Mikado image

I've got a little list...

  Mikado image

In which of my capacities? As First Lord of the Treasury, Lord Chamberlain, Attorney General, Chancellor of the Exchequer, Privy Purse, or Private Secretary?

  Mikado image

Three little maids from school are we,
Pert as a school-girl well can be,
Filled to the brim with girlish glee,
Three little maids from school!

  Mikado image

It goes against the grain. They are not young ladies, they are young persons.

  Mikado image

But as I'm engaged to Ko-Ko,
To embrace you thus, con fuoco,
Would distinctly be no giuoco,
And for yam I should get toko--

  Mikado image

Life without Yum-Yum--why, it seems absurd!

  Mikado image

Oh, fool! to shun delights that never cloy!
Come back, oh, shallow fool! come back to joy!

  Mikado image

The state of your connubial views
Towards the person you accuse
Does not concern us!
For he's going to marry Yum-Yum--

  Mikado image

O ni! bikkuri shakkuri to!

  Mikado image

Braid the raven hair--
Weave the supple tress--
Deck the maiden fair
In her loveliness--

  Mikado image

I mean to rule the earth,
As he the sky--
We really know our worth,
The sun and I!

  Mikado image

My morals have been declared Particularly correct;

But they're nothing at all, compared With those of his daughter-in-law elect!
Bow--Bow-- To his daughter-in-law elect!

  Mikado image

My object all sublime, I will achieve in time,

  Mikado image

I wasn't there.

  Mikado image

Oh, bother the flowers that bloom in the spring!

  Mikado image

Mercy even for Pooh-Bah.

  Mikado image

Traitor, you have deceived me!

  Mikado image

For he's gone and married Yum-Yum--

  Mikado image

With laughing song
And merry dance,
With joyous shout and ringing cheer,
Inaugurate our new career!
