Away, Away, My Heart's On Fire Lyrics

[PIRATE KING, RUTH & FREDERIC]
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!

[PIRATE 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!

[PIRATE KING, RUTH & FREDERIC]
Yes, yes! to-night the traitor dies!
Yes, yes! to-night the traitor dies!
[RUTH]
To-night he dies!

[PIRATE KING]
Yes, or early to-morrow

[FREDERIC]
His girls likewise?

[RUTH]
They will welter in sorrow

[PIRATE KING]
The one soft spot

[RUTH]
In their natures they cherish--

[FREDERIC]
And all who plot

[PIRATE KING]
To abuse it shall perish!

[PIRATE KING, RUTH & FREDERIC]
To-night he dies,
Yes, or early tomorrow
His girls likewise,
They will welter in sorrow
The one soft spot
In their natures they cherish--
And all who plot
To abuse it shall perish!
Away, away, away!
Tonight the traitor dies!
Away, away, tonight!
Tonight, tonight!
Tonight, the traitor dies, tonight
Away!
