It is unlikely that this work is public domain in the EU, or in any country where the copyright term is life-plus-70 years. However, it is in the public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and other countries where the term is life-plus-50 years (like China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide). As this work was first published before 1923 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements to secure statutory copyright, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.

  • Act I
Einleitung
Wie du warst! Wie du bist!
Du bist mein Bub', du bist mein Schatz!
Der Feldmarschall sitzt im krowatischen Wald
Quinquin, es ist ein Besuch
Selbstverständlich empfängt mich Ihro Gnaden
Hat Sie schon einmal
Macht das einen lahmen Esel aus mir?
Geben mir Euer Gnaden den Grasaff' da
Wollen Euer Gnaden leicht den Jungen Herren da
I komm' glei
Di rigori armato il seno
Als Morgengabe
Mein lieber Hippolyte
Da geht er hin, der aufgeblasene schlechte Kerl
Ach, du bist wieder da!
Die Zeit, die ist ein sonderbar Ding
Mein schöner Schatz
Ich werd' jetzt in die Kirchen
  • Act II
Einleitung
Ein ernster Tag, ein grosser Tag
In dieser feierlichen Stunde der Prüfung
Mir ist die Ehre widerfahren
Ich kenn' Ihn schon recht wohl
Jetzt aber kommt mein Herr Zukünftiger
Brav, Faninal, er weiss, was sich gehört
Wird kommen über Nacht
Hab' nichts dawider
Mit Ihren Augen voll Tränen
Herr Baron von Lerchenau!
Er muss mich pardonieren
Da lieg' ich!
Herr Cavalier!
  • Act III
Einleitung
Hab'n Euer Gnaden noch weitre Befehle?
Nein, nein, nein, nein! I trink' kein Wein
Ach, lass Sie schon einmal das fade Wort!
Die schöne Musi!
Wie die Stund' hingeht
Halt! Keiner rührt sich!
Sind desto eher im Klaren
Muss jetzt partout zu ihr!
Ist halt vorbei
Mein Gott, es war nicht mehr als eine Farce
Heut oder morgen oder den übernächsten Tag
Hab'mir's gelobt
Ist ein Traum, kann nicht wirklich sein
Ist ein Traum
