35MM: A Musical Exhibition - Good Lady Lyrics


TROUPE:
Fortune plango vulnerat
Stillantibus ocellis
Quod sua michi munera
Subtrahit rebellis

[THE LONG-TETHERED KNIGHT:
Gone is my Lady in White
At dawn, I roused to the sight
And I, her Long-Tethered Knight
Found no answer

I tore my blade from the wall
Ran through each chamber and hall
But naught for search nor for squall
Won no answer

What Man's so jealous yet
To steal my Lady away?
My maid with hair like jet
And skin like pearl in ocean spray!

I beg you, hear my call
Good Lady!
Athwart this earth, I follow
Good Lady!
Your deathless scent
Is all that keeps me from my torment
So if you hear my plea
Won't you answer?
Lady, won't you answer me?

KNIGHT:
So sure t'was some other knight
I took my fellows to fight
I ran through each man aright
But no answer

TROUPE:
O... O...
Fortune
Plango vulnerat
Stillantibus ocellis
(No answer.)

KNIGHT:
I drove through cave, creek and ditch
To slay each beast and each bitch
But bathed in blood black as pitch
I'd no answer

TROUPE:
Quod sua
Michi munera
Subtrahit rebellis
(No answer.)

KNIGHT:
If not a man or beast
Then where's my Lady been drawn?
I've hunted west to east
To find no sign where she has gone, O

TROUPE:
Fortune
Plango
Vulnerat
Ahh!

KNIGHT:
I beg you, hear my call
Good Lady!
Athwart this earth, I follow
Good Lady!
Your deathless scent
Is all that keeps me from my torment
So if you hear my please
Won't you answer?
Lady, won't you answer me?

TROUPE:
Follow, follow, follow...
Good Lady

KNIGHT:
Good lady!
O, Good Lady!

Now, to a Witch of Hell
To cast her seeing spell
And in a pot of puss
There, the answer-!
There, the answer-!
There, the answer comes, thus:

TROUPE:
Fortune plango vulnerat
Stillantibus ocellis

KNIGHT:
No need for search or sword
No further earth explored
...Good Lady just got bored

TROUPE:
Quod sua michi munera
Focus!

KNIGHT:
Now life is naught but a sieve
To drain what joy's left to give
How I preferred life to live
With no answer

TROUPE:
Verum est quod legitur
Ronte capillata
Sed plerumque sequitur
Occasio calvata.
