From "The Mikado."

Yum. Here's a how-de-do!
If I many you,
When your time has come to perish,
Then the maiden whom you cherish
Must be slaughtered too!
Here's a how-de-do!

Nanki. Here's a pretty mess!
In a month, or less,
I must die without a wedding!
Let the bitter tears I'm shedding
Witness my distress!
Here's a pretty mess!

Ko. Here's a state of things!
To her life she clings!
Matrimonial devotion
Doesn't seem to suit her notion!
Burial it brings!
Here's a state of things!

Ensemble.-Yum-Ycm, Nanki-Poo and Ko-Ko.

With a passion that's intense
I worship And adore,
But the laws of common sense
We oughtn't to ignore.
If what he says is true.
It is death to marry you!
Here's a pretty state of things!
Here's a pretty how-de-do!
