Did I abuse her or show her disdain?
Rothana, donít run from me!
If I should lose you, how shall I regain
The heart that you have won from me?

Agony! Beyond power of speech,
When the one thing you want
Is the only thing out of your reach!

In a dark corner, itís feeling much warmer
As I hold her near,
What is this Iím feeling? Itís sending me reeling
Do that again, Dear!

Agony! Far more painful than yours!
When you know she would marry you
But sheís betrothed to a bore!

Both: Agony! Oh, the torture they teach!

Dhugal: Whatís so intriguing

Kelson: Or half so fatiguing

Both: As whatís out of reach?

Am I not sensitive, clever, well-mannered,
Considerate, passionate, charming,
As kind as Iím handsome
And holding a throne?

Dhugal: You are everything maidens could wish for!

Kelson: Then why no?

Dhugal: Do I know?

Kelson: The girl must be mad!

You know nothing of madness
ĎTil youíre hiding in storerooms
Deep under the castle
Her handís there, and it moves soÖ

Both: Agony!

Kelson: Misery!

Dhugal: Woe!

Both: Though itís different for each.

Kelson: Always pleading with her

Dhugal: More, DearÖ Oh, my God, Oh!

And sheís just out of reach.
Agony, that can cut like a knife!
I must have her to wife.
