  • Act one. Pour, o pour the pirate sherry ; When Frederic 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 wandering 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 ; 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 prepared ; Stay, Frederic, stay! ; H.M.S. Pinafore. Sorry her lot ; No, I am 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.
