THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE;
THE SLAVE OF DUTY.
Pour, oh pour the pirate sherry!
Fill, oh fill the pirate glass!
And, to make us more than merry,
Let the pirate bumper pass.
For to-day our pirate 'prentice
Rises from indentures freed.
Strong his arm and keen his scent is;
He's a pirate now indeed!
Here's good luck to Frederic's venture:
Frederic's out of his indentures!
Two-and-twenty, now he's rising,
And alone he's fit to fly;
Which we're bent on signalizing
With unusual revelry.
Here's good luck to Frederic's ventures;
Frederic's out of his indentures.
So pour, oh pour the pirate sherry, etc.
