BUSKER'S SONG (im Originaldramentext)

 

Take, O, take those lips away,
That so sweetly were forsworn;                        

And those eyes, the break of day,
Lights that do mislead the morn:
But my kisses bring again, bring again;

Seals of love, but sealed in vain, sealed in vain.

 

Der Song der Bordelldamen und -herren Let's Get Fruity wurde von Peter Baasner geschrieben und von Rafael Rodriguez komponiert:

 

 

LET'S GET FRUITY

 

PROSTITUTE 1:

Will you have one, one of my apples

They are worth a few bucks as you see

I bet that they will give you the nettles

And wet your robust potency.

 

Tutti:    Will you have melons, mangos, coconuts or pomegranates?

              We sell the best fruits you’ll get in town!

 

PROSTITUTE 2:

I'll sell you two, two of my peaches

Well, they go by a greenback apace

They will surely bulge out your breeches

And help you to buck up your mace.

 

Tutti:    Will you have melons, mangos, coconuts or pomegranates?

              We sell the best fruits you’ll get in town!

 

BUM BOY:

I'm randy Bill and fond of pricks

A pair of balls gives me the kicks

I'm very choosy in my picks

Now don't you try to play on me your tricks.

 

MISTRESS OVERDONE:

Hey, look at these, my buzzing bees

They’ll give you honey, if you can spare some of your bucks

And so much more of what they have in store

So tutti frutti, let’s get mighty fruity.

 

Come, buy a few, few of my cherries

They are fruity and juicy to suck

A lot of tott'ring old Larries

Will wear them as charms for good luck.

 

Tutti:    Will you have melons, mangos, coconuts or pomegranates?

              We sell the best fruits you’ll get in town!

 

ALL:

They say that plums can cause the runs

It ain't necessarily so

My plums are fine like maidens' buns

Come on in now and give it a go.

 

Tutti:    Will you have melons, mangos, coconuts or pomegranates?

              We sell the best fruits you’ll get in town!
