Act one. Pour, o pour the pirate sherry ; When Fred'ric was a little lad ; Oh, better far to live and die ; Oh! false one, you have deceived me! ; Climbing over Rocky Mountain ; Stop, ladies, pray! ; Oh, is there not one maiden breast ; Poor wand'ring one! ; What ought we to do? ; How beautifully blue the sky ; Stay, we must not lose our senses ; Hold, monsters ; I am the very model of a modern Major-General ; Oh, men of dark and dismal fate -- Act two. Oh, dry the glistening tear ; Then Frederic, let your escort lion-hearted ; When the foeman bares his steel ; Now for the pirates' lair! ; When you had left our pirate fold ; Ruddigore. My eyes are fully open ; Away, away! My heart's on fire! ; All is prepar'd, your gallant crew await you! ; Stay, Fred'ric, stay! ; H.M.S. Pinafore. Sorry her lot ; No, I'll be brave! ; When a felon's not engaged in his employment ; A rollicking band of pirates we ; With cat-like tread, upon our prey we steal ; Hush, hush, Not a word ; Sighing softly to the river ; Finale
