The Mikado/Act I/Part VIII

Yum-Yum, Peep-Bo, Pitti-Sing
So please you, Sir, we much regret
If we have failed in etiquette
Towards a man of rank so high--
We shall know better by and by.

Yum-Yum
But youth, of course, must have its fling,
                 So pardon us,
                 So pardon us,

Pitti-Sing
And don't, in girlhood's happy spring,
                         Be hard on us,
                         Be hard on us,
               If we're inclined to dance and sing.
              Tra la la, etc. (Dancing.)

CHORUS OF GIRLS.
But youth, of course, etc.

Pooh Bah
I think you ought to recollect
You cannot show too much respect
Towards the highly titled few;
But nobody does, and why should you?
That youth at us should have its fling,
                         Is hard on us,
                         Is hard on us;
To our prerogative we cling--
                         So pardon us,
                         So pardon us,
If we decline to dance and sing.
                         Tra la la, etc. (Dancing.)

CHORUS OF GIRLS.
But youth, of course, must have its fling, etc.

Exeunt all but Yum-Yum.
