Title: In An Operetta

Lyrics In An Operetta

"Sing me the kind of song you hear
In an operetta
In an operetta

Sing me the words I long to hear
Out of Violetta
In an operetta

She will fast be outcast
From her castle, with nary a friend
But, since she's a princess,
There's hints of a prince
In the end

She'll enjoy some employ as a boy
With her name changed to Pip
Soon, by gum, she'll become
The brave captain of some
Pirate ship

Singing a thing fit for a king
In an operetta
In an operetta

It's the all-singing, all-dancing
Princess Violetta
Of the operetta
In an operetta
Within an operetta."
