Finale Act 1 (Quartet) Lyrics - Candide

Finale Act 1 (Quartet) Lyrics


CANDIDE
Once again we must be gone
Moving onward to the New World!
Shall our hopes be answered there?
Is that land so good and fair?

CUNEGONDE
In that land across the sea,
When our quest at last is ended,
Then all our fortunes shall be mended:
We shall dwell there, free of every care, happy we!

OLD LADY
Stripped though we are
Of our possessions, my dear,
We shall go far Through our professions, my dear.
If this New World

Has plenty of gallants,
We'll right our balance
Using our talents, my dear.

CAPTAIN
Go now and save
Montevideo, Candide!
Faithful and brave,
Go on your way, O Candide!

You must deter The heathen invader,
Drive out the raider,
Like a crusader, Candide.

OLD LADY
I was in a funk,
My confidence was failing,
I was feeling sunk,
But once again I'm sailing!

CAPTAIN
Yes, go, Candide.
Do as I say: On your way, O Candide!
Ah!

CUNEGONDE
Farewell, Old World!
Ah!

OLD LADY
I was depressed and my spirits were failing,
All's for the best now because we are sailing!
Ah!

CANDIDE
Shall my hopes for the first time
Be answered in that New World?
Oh, farewell, Old World, farewell!
Ah!

In that land across the sea,
When our quest at last is ended
All our fortunes shall be mended.

CUNEGONDE
Though we're deprived
Of our possessions, my dear,
We have survived
Through our professions, my dear.

If the New WorldHas plenty of gallants...

OLD LADY
I was in a funk,
My confidence was failing,
I was feeling sunk,
But once again I'm sailing!

CAPTAIN
Go now and save
Montevideo, Candide!
Faithful and brave,
Go on your way, O Candide!

You must deter
The heathen invader!

CUNEGONDE, WOMEN
Farewell to the Old!
We're bound for the realms of Gold!

OLD LADY
My heart's full of hope,
I'm sure we can cope, my dear!

CANDIDE, MEN
Farewell to distress!
All hail to our happiness!

CAPTAIN
With many a deed, Candide!
