Away, Away! My Heart's on Fire lyrics

Away, Away! My Heart's on Fire

TRIO: Away, away! my heart's on fire

KING/RUTH: Away, away! my heart's on fire;
I burn, this base deception to repay.
This very night my vengeance dire
Shall glut itself in gore. Away, away!

FREDERIC: Away, away! ere I expire--
I find my duty hard to do to-day!
My heart is filled with anguish dire,
It strikes me to the core. Away, away!

KING: With falsehood foul
He tricked us of our brides.
Let vengeance howl;
The Pirate so decides.
Our nature stern
He softened with his lies,
And, in return,
To-night the traitor dies.

ALL: Yes, yes! to-night the traitor dies!
Yes, yes! to-night the traitor dies!

RUTH: To-night he dies!

KING: Yes, or early to-morrow.

FREDERIC: His girls likewise?

RUTH: They will welter in sorrow.

KING: The one soft spot

RUTH: In their natures they cherish--

FREDERIC: And all who plot

KING: To abuse it shall perish!

ALL: To-night he dies, etc.
