NO! NO! The celebrated Duett in the Burletta of " No."
As sung by James Dunn and Mrs. W. G. Jones, at the New Bowery
He. Will you not bless, with one sentence, a lover
Whose bosom beats only for you? The cause of your anger I pr'ythee discover—
Pray tell me the reason for ? She. - No!
He. Say, dearest, you still love me ? She. No!
He. Oh, how can you doom me to sorrow ?
Yet once again bless me with— She. No !
He. And promise to meet me to-morrow:
Promise— She. No!
He. Don't say no!
He. Must we, then, dearest Maria, sever ?
And can you, then, part with me ? She. No!
He. Then swear by yon sun to be mine only ever;
You cannot refuse me, love 1 She. No !
He. You hate not your fond lover? She. No!
He. Your hand to my faithful heart pressing,
Say, does it offend you, love ?
No! He. Then to marry will not be distressing—
Answer! She. No!
He. Once more.
She. No! no! no! no!
