Dulcamara

Trio - Tamaso, Gianetta, and Catarina

Tom:

Now maidens all, these youngsters tall,
You'd all do well to wed 
They've all come in to no end of tin,
For their uncles all are dead.

Cat:      

We do not doubt that all you spout
Today's extremely true 

Gia:     

But all they'll say, when they hear us pray, 
Is Oodley umpty oo!

Chorus: Oodley oodley umpty oo! ...etc

Cat: Each girl's engaged to one!

Tom:    

Well tell them, you know, that they all may go,
Why every day it's done!

But all they'll say, when they hear us pray,

Is  Oodley umpty oo!
 
Chorus: But all they'll say ...etc

Oh, maids, perfumed, your luck has bloomed
For wedded love is gold.
These boys you're plighted to ain't bright
But still, they're true and bold.

Cat:      

The things you say on this fine day
Are certain, we'll agree.

Gia:    

But all we'll gain is this refrain 
Of "doodley dumpty dee!"

Chorus: Doodley doodley dumpty dee! etc. 

Gia: Each girl's engaged like me!

Tom:    

Both old and young with skittish tongue
Propose on bended knee.

But all we'll gain is this refrain 
Of "doodley dumpty dee!"

Chorus: But all we'll gain ...etc
