(CRITICAL VOCABULARY IS UNDERLINED)

I, Lemuel Gulliver
give thee a faithful history
of my most interesting adventure
in the south sea.
On the 5th day of November, 1699,
having reached latitude 30 degrees,
two minutes south,
a storm of great fury suddenly…
All’s well!
All’s well!
All’s well! What’s a rainy day?
Never mind that cloud.
Behind that cloud you’ll find a golden ray.
All’s well! Laugh your fears away.
See the light ahead. Right ahead.
There’s a moonlit night ahead.
Everyone, come on have fun. All’s well!
Why do they make me sing that song?
The poet who wrote it was certainly wrong.
It’s bright ahead. The light’s ahead.
I’d rather go home and go right to bed.
All’s well!
My feet are wet and my bunions ache,
and yet I’ve to keep wide awake,
all night!
I wake folks up to tell them things are all right!
And, All’s well! What’s a rainy day?
Never mind that cloud.
Behind that cloud you’ll find a golden ray.
All’s well! Laugh your fears away.
See the light ahead. Right ahead.
There’s a moonlit night ahead.
Everyone, come on have fun. All
A, A, All’s well! Wha, wha, what’s a rainy day?
The king has visitors.
Do you know they’re signing a wedding contract?
There’s a giant on the beach!
There, there’s a giant out there!
Your majesty.
Thank you, your majesty.
Marriage Contract
King Little of Lilliput
Does this 5th day of November 1699 give the hand of his daughter
Princess Glory
to Prince David
son of Bombo
King of Blefuscu!
Quite in order, fine.
King Bombo!
Well we did it, you little rascal, you. We did it.
Yes we, we certainly did, didn’t we?
Just a couple of old dag cupids, I think! [laughs}
Your majesty, the wedding things are here.
There’s a giant on the beach! Let me go!
Let me go! Let me go! There’s a giant on the beach! Let me go!
Exquisite taste, exquisite!
Roses, Freesia, Rhododendrons, Ranunculus, Snap Dragons, and Daisies.
Ahh!
They’re pretty Posies, aren’t they?
Beautiful blooms, beautiful!
Oh!
May I?
Oh, please do!
Magnificent!
Oh! A masterpiece!
Vanilla. Wow!
Faithful. Remember, that whatever I do, I’m always faithful, my love.
Faithful, with all my soul and thankful for you,
who came from heaven above.
We’ll dance tonight together, on a world with me we’ll find.
My only little daughter. I dread losing her.
Huh, Buck up there old boy, you’re not losing a daughter. You’re gaining a son.
My son!
So I’ll be faithful and faithful as I promise to be, and you’ll be for all mine.
Hmm. Lovely melody.
Yes, we like it.
That is Faithful. The song of Lilliput.
It will be played at the wedding tomorrow.
Of course. Of course.
What’s that, Faithful? Oh, no, no! Forever!
The song of Blefuscu must be played at the wedding.
But Bombo, Faithful is always played at our weddings.
It, it’s tradition, sir. And it’s very pretty.
Yes, yes, I know. Pleasant little ditty,
oh but hardly appropriate for this great occasion.
But Forever! There’s a song for you! Ha, ha!
Faithful will be played.
Bah! Fodder. Absolute fodder. It must be Forever!
Faithful.
Forever!
Faithful.
Forever!
Faithful.
It will be Forever, or there will be no wedding!
No wedding? But the cake and the pretty flowers and..
oh Bombo, you’ll love Faithful.
Ahh!
It’s war!
There’s a giant on the beach!
It’s war!
War. Woe is me. Woe is me.
I found a mountain, your majesty. I found it! It was man, a man mountain!
War isn’t nice.
It was, was this big!
No, no. It was this big!
People get hurt in wars.
He’s as big, as big as, as,.. big as, as, as..
Wait your majesty!
Bombo can’t frighten me. No sir.
Don’t stand there like a nincompoop!
I’m trying to tell you that there’s a giant!
When I get my dandruff up, then look out.
But Glory, poor little Glory.
Don’t look now gentleman, but it’s war.
War? Whoopee!
Forever, forever,
There won’t be anyone but you.
Remember I’m true, my sweet.
Forever, forever,
You’ll share in everything I do,
And keep smiling through, my sweet.
I’ll have just you here in my heart,
And I’ll trust you though we’re apart.
So, forever, forever,
My guiding angel you will be.
So always have faith in me.

Be off and may luck be with you!
Too-de-loo!
Get going!
Your majesty, I’m sorry the little princess isn’t with us.
Yes, too bad. Too much excitement for one day.
There are bluebirds in the moonlight
Silly idea, bluebirds in the moonlight
But that’s how I feel when I’m with you

Come home again, come home
Wherever you may be
Come home again you sailor man, sailor man
Home again to the sea
I hear a dream all day
A dream that calls to me
Come home again you sailor man, sailor man
Home again to the sea
Ahoy, mate! Ahoy, m…
Ahoy, mate! Ahoy! Ahoy! I see that you’re a sailor boy.
I owned a boat. A beauty, too.
Fifty times as big as your a,
as big as your a,
as big as your shoe.
My, my.
Hoy, hoy.
Lost her though in a glorious gale,
but I came home on the back of a whale.
But tell me though how you caught the whale.
Simply grabbed a hold of his tail.
My, my.
I, I,
I climbed a mountain peak so high.
I bumped my head against the sky.
And there I was, where was I?
On the Island of Alibi.
Hoy, hoy.
My, my.
Hi, hi.
But now my life is very dull.
They ought to make me an admiral.
Now that’s the job that I’d enjoy.
I must be going. Ahoy! Ahoy!
My, my, my.
You put that ball in there.
And then it goes down and around.
Pull that thing.
And it comes out here.
The g-g-g-g-giant!
Wow!
The light. The light. Douse the light!
He’s gone.
Phew!
Hello! Anybody in there?
Nobody here but just us spi…
Chickens!
My, my.
Forever, forever,
There won’t be anyone but you.
Remember I’m true, my sweet.
Forever, forever,
La, la, la, la, la, la.
Forever, forever,
Forever! Forever!
That’s the song of Blefescu!
A spy!
Charge!
A spy!
A spy!
Charge!
A spy! A spy!
Charge!
Where is he? Where did he go?
Concealing a spy.
And at a time of war, too. That makes it worse!
Carry on the search men!
Mind you, your father will hear of this.
King Bombo, Say the word and the giant is a dead duck.
..is a dead duck.
P.S. What do we do with the body?
Two hearts and a wedding broken by a melody?
Incredible!
Wait a minute.
I have an idea that might turn this malice to a melody!
Sing Faithful and Forever together, as one song.
The giant will be a dead duck.
Ha! Now we are getting at somewhere!
Dear Spies, Destroy. Crush. Obliterate! Annihilate!
Kill him!
I will attack at dawn!
Affectionately yours, Bombo.
Whatcha got there?
Attack at dawn. Attack.. Bombo’s attack.., Bom…, Bom…
Guards! Guards! Guards!
Bombo’s attacking! Bombo’s attacking!
Bombo’s attacking at dawn!
Bombo’s attacking! It’s war!
Bombo’s attacking! It’s war! It’s war!
It’s the end of the ending!
To the beach! To the beach!
Bomb.. attacking!
What?
Bombo attacking!
It’s war! It’s war!
To the beach! To the beach!
The enemy attacks!
To defend Lilliput.
To defend Lilliput!
Yes, forward march.
Gulliver! Gulliver! Where are you?
Bombo’s attacking.
Where are you Gulliver? We’ll be wiped out!
Gulliver where are you?
Gulliver! Gulliver! Bombo’s attacking!
Gulliver! Gulliver! Bombo’s attacking!
It’s war! Gulliver! It’s war!
Gulliver! Where are you?
Gulliver! Gulliver! It’s war!
Gulliver! Bombo’s attacking! Bombo’s attacking! It’s war!
Put me down.
Hah! Well, where you been you lazy, long legged, overgrown lummox?
Now, get down there to that beach and wipe out that Bombo
and that bunch of Blefescuians.
And tear em to pieces
and don’t leave a man alive to tell the tale.
Forward march! Get going!
Aye, aye, sir! My, oh my.
Hey! Wait for me.
Gulliver, wait for me!
Wait for me, Gulliver!
No note.
Where is it?
What did you done with it?
Where did you lose it?
Who’s got it now?
Gulliver! Gulliver! Wait for me!
Gulliver! Gulliver!
Let me go! Let me go!
Let’s go!
Hold on there! We can settle this peacefully.
Listen!
Hold you fire!
Hear what I have to say.
Bombo, order your men to lay down their arms.
Must I make you listen?
David, look! Gulliver’s thunder machine.
Wait here, Glory.
David!
Fire!
Fire!
Pull! Come on! Pull! Pull!
David!
Poor, poor, foolish little people.
Look what you’ve done.
Now go ahead! Break your nutshell heads over your songs!
But did you have to break Glory’s heart, King Little,
because you are thoughtless and selfish?
And you Bombo, o mighty warrior, what have you won?
You were too stubborn to think,
too busy quarrelling to lend ear to the harmony that might have been yours.
But now in your sorrow and despair,
perhaps you will listen to your songs as they might be sung.
Faithful forever whatever I do
Remember I’m true,
remember that
Faithful forever and thankful for you
I’ll keep smiling through,
remember that
We may be apart now and then
But I’ll hold you in my heart
Till you’re in my arms again
Faithful forever I promise to be
So always have faith in me
In behalf of the peoples of Blefescu and Lilliput,
With eternal gratitude and love in our hearts, we christen thee, Gulliver!
Come back again, come back
Wherever you may be
Come back again you sailor man, sailor man
Back again from the sea
Come back again you sailor man, sailor man
Back again from the sea

KARAOKE SONG – “Pretty Saro”

When I first come to this country in seventeen-forty-nine,
I saw many fair lovers, but never saw mine.
I looked all around me, and I found I was alone.
Me a poor stranger, and a long way from home.

Down in some lonesome valley, down in some lonesome place,
Where the wild birds to whistle their notes to increase,
I think of pretty Saro whose waist is so neat
And I know of no better pastime than to be with my sweet.

My love she won’t have have me, so I understand
She wants a free-holder, who owns house and land.
I cannot maintain her with silver and gold,
Nor buy all the find things that a big house can hold.

I wish I was a poet and could write a fine hand.
I would send my love a letter that she could understand.
And I’d send it by a messenger where the waters do flow.
And think of pretty Saro wherever I go.

When I first come to this country in seventeen-forty-nine,
I saw many fair lovers, but never saw mine.
I looked all around me, and found I was alone.
Me a poor stranger, and a long way from home.
