Iolanthe - If You Go In, Act II, Men's Trio

Thanks to debriswoman for telling me about this song ;)

A fine collection of cliches, but most entertaining and--sometimes--true.

"...Every journey has an end,
When at the worst, affairs will mend,
Dark the dawn when day is nigh,
Hustle your horse and don't say die!"

Iolanthe
Faint Heart Never Won Fair Lady
TRIO - LORD MOUNTARARAT, LORD TOLOLLER, LORD CHANCELLOR

LORD MOUNT: If you go in You're sure to win--
Yours will be the charming maidie:
Be your law The ancient saw, "Faint heart never won fair lady!"

ALL: Never, never, never, Faint heart never won fair lady!
Every journey has an end--
When at the worst affairs will mend--
Dark the dawn when day is nigh--
Hustle your horse and don't say die!

LORD TOLL: He who shies At such a prize
Is not worth a maravedi,
Be so kind To bear in mind-- Faint heart never won fair lady!

ALL: Never, never, never, Faint heart never won fair lady!
While the sun shines make your hay--
Where a will is, there's a way--
Beard the lion in his lair--
None but the brave deserve the fair!

LORD CH: I'll take heart And make a start--
Though I fear the prospect's shady--
Much I'd spend To gain my end-- Faint heart never won fair lady!

ALL: Never, never, never, Faint heart never won fair lady!
Nothing venture, nothing win--
Blood is thick, but water's thin--
In for a penny, in for a pound--
It's Love that makes the world go round!

Nothing venture, nothing win--
Blood is thick, but water's thin--
In for a penny, in for a pound--
It's Love that makes the world go round!
