Gilbert And Sullivan - Braid the Raven Hair, Weave the Supple Tresses lyrics

[SCHOOLGIRLS] Braid the raven hair Weave the supple tress Deck the maiden fair In her loveliness Paint the pretty face Dye the coral lip Emphasize the grace Of her ladyship! Art and nature, thus allied Go to make a pretty bride Art and nature, thus allied Go to make a pretty bride [PITTI-SING] Sit with downcast eye Let it brim with dew Try if you can cry We will do so, too When you're summoned start Like a frightened roe Flutter, little heart Color, come and go! Modesty at marriage-tide Well becomes a pretty bride Modesty at marriage-tide Well becomes a pretty bride [SCHOOLGIRLS] Braid the raven hair Weave the supple tress Deck the maiden fair In her loveliness Paint the pretty face Dye the coral lip Emphasize the grace Of her ladyship! Art and nature, thus allied Go to make a pretty bride Art and nature, thus allied Go to make a pretty bride
