: I read down below Yoda Boy's question about Sallah's Sea Shanties. Well, actually they are from a Gilbert & Sullivan operetta called HMS Pinafore. I located a copy of it at http://math.idbsu.edu/gas/pinafore/libretto.txt
: I'm not a buff or anything, it's just that I saw my sister in a performance, and when I heard the familiar words..."I am a monarch of the sea..." I had this great revelation.
: Later all.
I checked this information out and it is true. But the refrain you're
looking for is almost at the very end of the play. Scroll all the way
down and you will find it. I started reading it and I found it much
too drawn-out and, sadly, pretty boring. To tell you the truth, I've
never been a fan of musicals and such. It's just not my cup of tea.
Of course, I mean no offense to anyone, just thought I'd confess.
