"Hail to the Princess Aurora"
"Skumps"


I Wonder
I wonder, I wonder
I wonder why each little bird
Has a someone
To sing to
Sweet things to
A gay little lark melody

I wonder, I wonder
If my heart keeps singing
Will my heart go winging
To someone
Who'll find me
And bring back a love song
To me


Once Upon a Dream
I know you, I walked with you
Once Upon a Dream
I know you, the gleam in your eyes
Is so familiar a gleam
But I know it's true
That visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you
I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once
The way you did once
Upon a Dream

But I know it's true
That visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you
I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once
The way you did once
Upon a Dream

I know you, I walked with you
Once Upon a Dream
I know you, the gleam in your eyes
Is so familiar a gleam
But I know it's true
That visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you
I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once
The way you did once
Upon a Dream


Sleeping Beauty
Sleeping Beauty fair
Gold of sunshine in your hair
Lips that shame the red, red rose
Dreaming of true love in slumber repose

One day he will come
Riding out of the dawn
And you'll awaken to love's first kiss
Till then, Sleeping Beauty, sleep on

And you'll awaken to love's first kiss
Till then, Sleeping Beauty, sleep on


The Gifts of Beauty and Song/For True Love Conquers All
One gift: beauty rare
Gold of sunshine in her hair
Lips that shame the red, red rose
She'll walk with springtime
Wherever she goes

One gift: the gift of song
Melody her whole lofe long
The nightengale's her traubadour
Bringing his sweet serenade to her door

For true love conquers all


Hail to the Princess Aurora
Joyfully now to our princess we come
Bringing gifts of all good wishes too
We pledge our loyalty anew
Hail to the Princess Aurora
All of her subjects adore her
Hail to the King, hail to the Queen
Hail to the Princess Aurora
Health to the Princess
Wealth to the Princess
Long live the Princess Aurora
Hail Aurora, hail Aurora
Health to the Princess
Wealth to the Princess
Long live the Princess Aurora
Hail to the King, hail to the Queen
Hail to the Princess Aurora!


Skumps
Skumps! Skumps! A toast to this night
When the outlook is rosy
But the future is bright
Our children will marry
Our kindoms unite
Skumps! Skumps! Skumps!

Skumps! Skumps! A toast to the home
One grander by far than a palace in Rome
Let me fill up your glass
That glass was all foam
Skumps! Skumps! Skumps!
