When first my old, old love I knew ; Oh gentlemen listen I pray (Trial by Jury) -- Time was when love and I ; Happy young heart ; My name is John Wellington Wells (The sorcerer) -- We sail the ocean blue ; I'm called Little Buttercup ; A maiden fair to see ; I am the captain of the Pinafore ; Sorry her lot who loves too well ; I am the monarch of the sea ; When I was a lad I ; Refrain audacious tar ; Fair moon to thee I sing ; A simple sailor lowly born ; He is an Englishman! (H.M.S. Pinafore) -- When Frederic was a little lad ; I am a pirate king ; Oh is there not one maiden breast ; Poor wand'ring (wandering) one ; I am the very model of a modern major-general ; The policeman's song ; With cat-like tread upon our prey we steal (The pirates of Penzance) -- Twenty love-sick maidens we ; When I first put this uniform on ; Am I alone and unobserved? ; Prithee, pretty maiden ; Silver'd is the women's hair ; Love is a plaintive song (Patience) -- The law is the true embodiment ; When I went to the bar as a very young man ; When all night long a chap remains ; When Britain really ruled the waves ; Oh foolish Fay ; Love unrequited robs me of my rest (Iolanthe) -- If you give me your attention ; Oh Goddess wise (Princess Ida) -- A wand'ring minstrel I ; As some day it may happen ; Three little maids from school are we ; The sun whose rays are all ablaze ; Miya-Sama ; The Mikado's song ; The flowers that bloom in the spring ; Alone and yet alive ; Willow tit-willow ; There is beauty in the bellow of the blast (The Mikado) -- If somebody there chanced to be ; My boy you may take it from me ; To a garden full of posies ; Henceforth all the crimes (Ruddigore) -- When maiden loves she sits and sighs ; Is life a boon? ; I have a song to sing O! ; I've jibe and joke ; Were I thy bride ; Oh! A private buffoon is a light-hearted loon ; Free from his fetters grim (The yeoman of the guard) -- The Duke of Plaza-Toro ; No possible doubt whatever ; When a merry maiden marries ; Rising early in the morning ; Take a pair of sparkling eyes ; There lived a king ; On the day when I was wedded (The gondoliers) -- In ev'ry (every) mental lore (Utopia limited) -- So ends my dream (The grand duke)
