PRIMA DONNA'S SONG.
From the opera of "Poor Jonathan."

Ah, we hapless prima donnas, great the trouble do we see!
Ev'ry one thinks that with honors we contented e'er should be;
Of us wonders are exacted, tho' we've plaudits none the less,
Which they reckon we're expected to accept for happinessl
Ah, un trillo! brava, brava, brava!
Ah, tres bien, tres bien, ah, quelle est belle!
Ah, ach, Jott, wie jottvojl! Eljen! Slava!
Ah, oh charming, very well! but 'midst all their praise sweetly ringing,
Midst all the throng assembled there the eye seeks but one cherish'd being,
But ah, no where! oh, deep despair! yet while I am anxiously gazing,
Where wanders he with weary feet?
Where dwells he, is he still living, where finds he now love's greeting sweet?
I ask this of each eye-glance met,
But answer only do I get:
Ah! you make always a great furore sing, Sonambula, the Barbier,
Traviata Trovatore, this is quite enough, my dear!
And so multiplies all our misfortune and increases our troubles for us,
It is-shall I it mention? scandalous
Still we can always find a reason, when we think we are displeased,
And at any time or season, be with sudden hoarseness seized;
Always hbsch, hbsch, hbsch, hbscb, hbsch, hbsch. hbsch!
For with hoarseness-yes. with hoarseness can always be seized!-ah!
Scandalous! Scandalous!
Ha, ha, ha! always hbsch, hbscb, hbsch!
For with hoarseness-yes, with hoarseness can always be seized!
We can with hoarseness be seized, yes, with hoarseness be seized!
Scandalous! Scandalous!
Ha, ha, ha! always hbsch, hbsch, hbsch, hbsch. hbsch, hbsch. hbsch!
For with hoarseness-yes, with hoarseness can always be seized!
We can with hoarseness be seized, yes, with hoarseness be seized!
Scandalous! scandalous! scandalous!
Ha, ha ha! always hbsch, hbsch, hbsch!
For with hoarseness-yes, with hoarseness can always be seized!
We can with hoarseness be seized-yes, with hoarseness be seized!
For with hoarseness-yes, with hoarseness can always be seizedl
We can with hoarseness be seized-yes, with hoarseness be seized!
