Dulcamara

Entrance and Song - Belcore

Chorus - Villagers and Soldiers

Belcore comes marching home again,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
He'll turn the village girls insane,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
On a soldier's coat, all maidens doat,
Those joyful shouts, that fact denote.
We'll all be gay!
Belcore comes marching home!

Song - Belcore
 
For this welcome, unrivalled in story,
Belcore's thanks are truly, truly due,
I'll be civil, tho' sated with glory 
How de do? How de do? How de do?

(to Nemorino) Even you, sir!
              Even you, sir!

I ask you how you do, sir?
I'll be civil, tho' sated with glory 
How de do? How de do? How de do?
 
Oh, I'm almost too grand for one lady. 
How I'd court every maid and ingenue
I'd spend time, if it wasn't so shady,
Courting you! And then you! And then you!

(finding the least attractive) Even you, miss!
                               Even you, miss!

I'd ask for romance that's true, miss.
Yes, I would, if it wasn't so shady.
I'd ask you! And then you! And then you!
