Bon Voyage lyrics

by

Leonard Bernstein


[ENSEMBLE]
Bon voyage, dear fellow
Dear benefactor of your fellow man!
May good luck attend you
Do come again and see us when you can

[GOVERNOR]
Oh, but I'm bad
Oh, but I'm bad
Playing such a very dirty trick on such a fine lad!
I'm a low cad
I'm a low cad
Every time I do this sort of thing it makes me so sad
Ever so sad!
Oh, but I'm bad!
Ever so bad!

[ENSEMBLE]
Bon voyage, bon voyage, bon voyage, bon voyage

[GOVERNOR & ENSEMBLE]
Bon voyage!

[ENSEMBLE]
Bon voyage, we'll see ya
Do have a jolly trip across the foam!
Santa Rosalia
Do have a safe and pleasant journey home, journey home
Bon voyage, bon voyage

[GOVERNOR]
I'm so rich that my life is an utter bore
There is just not a thing that I need
My desirеs are as dry as an apple core
And my only еmotion is greed
Which is why, though I've nothing to spend it for
I have swindled this gold from Candide
Poor Candide!

But I never would swindle the humble poor
For you can't get a turnip to bleed
When you swindle the rich you get so much more
Which is why I have swindled Candide
Oh dear, I fear
He's going down, he's going to drown!
Ah, poor Candide!
[ENSEMBLE]
Bon voyage, dear stranger
Hope that the crossing will not prove too grim
You seem to be in danger
But we expect that you know how to swim

[GOVERNOR]
What a dumb goat, what a dumb goat
Handing me a fortune for a perfect wreck of a boat
Never did float, never did float
This is going to make a most amusing anecdote
Never did float, wreck of a boat
What a dumb goat!

[ENSEMBLE]
Bon voyage, bon voyage, bon voyage, bon voyage

[GOVERNOR & ENSEMBLE]
Bon voyage!

[ENSEMBLE]
Bon voyage, best wishes!
Seems to have been a bit of sabotage
Things don't look propitious
Still from the heart we wish you
Bon voyage, bon voyage, bon voyage, bon voyage
Bon voyage, bon voyage

[GOVERNOR]
Bon voyage!

[ENSEMBLE]
Dear fellow, bon voyage!
