Ceylon Lyrics


by . From The Mystery of Edwin Drood.


Helena:
Ceylon...Ceylon
By the Bengal Bay,

Neville:
East of Jaipur,
West of Mandalay!

Helena & Neville:
Agra...Patna...
Sholapur and Kolhapur and all,

Helena:
How far they are
From the High Street and the Market Hall

Drood:
It's all very well for you
To speak of this distant view,
But Rosa what's planned for me
Is grander than sand and sea!
This vista that's in my sight
Where I'll set the world alright
Awaits me...
It dominates me.

Drood:
It's perfectly fine for them
To sing of their minor gem,
But there is a role for me,
A goal I intend to see,
A vision that's clean and
Bright before me -
You cannot ignore me
I will soon be
Shaping and molding,
Holding fortune in my hand
And I'll improve and
Shake and move and
Change the very
Nature of the land

Helena & Neville:
Ceylon...Ceylon
Cross the Injun Seas
T'wards the Fjords of
Thornaby-on-Tees
Typhoons
Monsoons,
Break upon the
Coast of Malabar!
Quaking,
Shaking,
Change the way you are, hey!

Helena, Neville, & Ensemble:
Ceylon, Ceylon
By the Bengal Bay,
East of Jaipur, West of Mandalay!

Helena:
How warm are the winds of our Golden Isle!

Neville:
How cool are their words and how cold is their smile!

Both:
They wish us gone!
We'll be back someday Ceylon!

Drood, Jasper & Ensemble:
They've become a throat straight from Ceylon.

All:
Sail on to Ceylon! Hey!
