Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

BUT.    
A many years ago,
When I was young and charming,
As some of you may know,
I practised baby-farming.

ALL.    
Now this is most alarming!
When she was young and charming,
She practised baby-farming,
A many years ago.

BUT.    
Two tender babes I nursed:
One was of low condition,
The other, upper crust,
A regular patrician.

ALL     
Now, this is the position:
One was of low condition,
The other a patrician,
A many years ago.

BUT.    
Oh, bitter is my cup!
However could I do it?
I mixed those children up,
And not a creature knew it!

ALL.    
However could you do it?
Some day, no doubt, you'll rue it,
Although no creature knew it,
So many years ago.

BUT.   
In time each little waif
Forsook his foster-mother,
The well born babe was Ralph--
Your captain was the other!!!

ALL.    
They left their foster-mother,
The one was Ralph, our brother,
Our captain was the other,
A many years ago.
