Dulcamara

Scene Five Opening Chorus of Girls

Girls:

Those Ignorant farmers are terrible boys,
Attracted to war with its battle and noise.
They're much too unworthy to even discuss.
They'd never make suitable suitors for us. 

We never, oh, never, will look for the men,
Oh, never, oh, never, oh never again!

We never, oh, never, will look for the men,
Oh, never, oh, never, oh never again!

Gianetta: 

They'll follow their leader and go off to war,
Returning with tales that unsettle and bore.
It's time that the terrible truth is confessed.
We're better without them and all's for the best.

We never, oh, never, will speak of the men,
Oh, never, oh, never, oh never again!

Girls: 

We never, oh, never, will speak of the men,
Oh, never, oh, never, oh never again!

We'll never forgive them no matter who cries.
We've made up our minds with no tears in our eyes.
Thank heaven our hearts weren't given away.
There's none more disgraceful or foolish as they.

Catarina:

There's none more disgraceful or foolish as they!
There's none more disgraceful or foolish as they!

Gianetta:

We never, oh, never, will think of the men!

Girls:

We never, oh, never, will think of the men,
Oh, never, oh, never, oh never again!
