Original Broadway Cast of Candide – Bon Voyage

Letra “Original Broadway Cast of Candide – Bon Voyage” Official Lyrics


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!
