Rodgers And Hammerstein — The Prince Is Giving A Ball lyrics

Lionel take this down:
His royal highness, Christopher Rupert Windermere Vladimir Carl
Alexander Francois Reginald Lancelot Herman...

(Lionel) Herman?

(Queen) Herman.
Gregory James... (he'll thank us for it later) Is giving a ball!

The Prince is Giving a Ball!
His royal highness, Christopher Rupert, son of her majesty, Queen
Constantina, Charlotte Ermantrude, Gueenavier Mazy...

(Stepmother) Mazy?

(Lionel) Mazy. Margarita... Is giving a ball!

The Prince is giving a Ball! The Prince is giving a Ball!

They've spread the message far and wide, the Prince in giving a Ball!
They say he wants to find a bride, he may find one at the ball!

If only he'd propose to me!

I wish that he'd propose to me!

Just leave the hair and clothes to me!

(Stepmother, Calliope, Minerva)
The Prince is giving a Ball!

Now if you please, the crown decrees, some fois de soir with frills,
A silky sateen in aubergine, a red if someone spills!

A surfeit of meat, a side of ham, and lots of beef filets,
Some marbleized steaks, a rack of lamb, and veal you raise to braise!

Limburger, swiss in gourmandise, cheddar, gruyere, and bleu,
Chunks of swiss in barrels, please, make sure that it's hole-y, too!

Puddings, and pies, and rum souffles, succulent chocolate rounds,
Cream puffs they can chew away to gain some royal pounds!

The Prince is giving a Ball!
The Prince is giving a Ball!


The Prince is giving a Ball!
The Prince is giving a Ball!

His royal highness--200 orchids, 400 poppies, 600 roses, 800 lilies--
Christopher Rupert-- 1, 000 oranges, 2, 000 plums--
Windermere Vladimir Carl Alexander-- raspberry, blueberry, strawberry, gooseberry--
Francois Reginald Lancelot Herman, son of her majesty Queen Constantina--
Chocolate cheddar and Charlotte and Mazy-- son of his Caviar, King Maximillian-- Alfred Ladislaw Leopold Sydney--



(All) Is giving a Ball!
