                 WHEN I FIRST PUT THIS UNIFORM ON
[Tune from “Patience” by G&S]

    GOVERNOR: When I first put this uniform on
      I said, as I looked in the glass,
      "It is one to a million
      That any civilian
      My figure and form will surpass.
      Gold braid is admired in Hong Kong,
      And I've plenty of that, plus a gong,
      So my market predictions
      And other such fictions
      Will never be treated as wrong" --
          A fact that I counted upon
          When I first put this uniform on!
    CHORUS: By a simple coincidence few
      Could ever have counted upon,
      The same thing occurred to us,
      When he first put his uniform on!

    GOVERNOR: I said, when I first put it on,
      "It is plain to the veriest dunce
      That every nation
      Will feel obligation
      To yield to its glamour at once.
      In Whitehall they'll know who I am,
      And Beijing will be tame as a lamb" --
      But nobody needs me
      And nobody heeds me
      And nobody gives a goddamn --
          Which I never counted upon
          When I first put this uniform on!
    CHORUS: By a simple coincidence few
      Could ever have counted upon
      We didn't anticipate that,
      When he first put his uniform on!


           THE BRIDGE AND BRAND-NEW AIRPORT SONG
[Tune: Bridge Over Troubled Water]
GOVERNOR:
       When your airport got too small
       When passengers crowded in every waiting hall,
       We had to build.
CHOIR:
       When times got rough
       The market had a shock
       Like a bridge and a brand-new airport
       Out at Chek Lap Kok
       Like a bridge and a brand-new airport
       Out at Chek Lap Kok

GOVERNOR:
       When your confidence / got real low,
       Investors fled, and the Exchange was slow,
       We had a plan:
CHOIR:
       Some gimmick grand,
       Expensive, full of schlock,
       Like a bridge and a brand-new airport
       Out at Chek Lap Kok
       Like a bridge and a brand-new airport
       Out at Chek Lap Kok

CHOIR:
        So fly away. Fly right through,
       We were not here to pay when the bill came due
       -- That's up to you!
       Just think of us
       Now we're in the U.K.
GOVERNOR:
       For a bridge and a brand-new airport
       You’ve paid and paid
CHOIR:
       For a bridge and a brand-new airport
       You’ve paid and paid

                     Choir launch into the Rhythm of lif
Choir now make a sweeping bow and launch into song slowly and reverently into
Sweet Chariot.

“Cough Low, Sweet SAR
Coming for to carry me home – in a box
Cough Low, Sweet SAR
Coming for to carry me home – in a box
I looked over Mongkok and what did I see
Coming for to carry me home – in a box
A band of haze, drifting after me
Coming for to carry me home - In a box.


I crossed the harbour and what did I see
Coming for to carry me home – in a box
A stream of filth, chocking after me
Coming for to carry me home – in a box

Choke Low, Sweet SAR
Coming for to carry me home – in a box
Choke Low, Sweet SAR
Coming for to carry me home
IN A BOX.


                              FALUN GONG: A ROUND

       We must ban it, we must ban it,
       Falun Gong, Falun Gong!
       All around the planet, all around the planet,
       It is wrong, it is wrong.

                        SHEPHERDS QUARTET
        [Tune: Standin' on the Corner, from “Most Happy Fella”]
ALL: Standing on the hillside, watching all the sheep go by,
  Standing on the hillside, watching all the sheep go by,
EVANS: Brother you don't know a nicer occupation --
  Matter of fact, neither do I --
ALL: Than standing on the hillside, watching all the sheep,
  Watching all the sheep, watching all the sheep go by.

THOMAS: Got no girl / I got no wife
Only got my sheep / they are my life
Only got my sheep / to see me through
So I stand here on the hillside A-picking out my favourites:
[pointing] "It's Ewe, and ewe, and ewe!"

ALL: Standing on the hillside, watching all the sheep go by,
  Standing on the hillside, giving all the ewes the eye,
JONES: Brother if you've got a rich imagination,
  Give it a whirl, give it a try.
ALL: Try standing on the hillside, watching all the sheep,
 Watching all the sheep, watching all the sheep go by.

JENKINS: Every bee / has got his swarm
Got my flock of sheep / to keep me warm
I can cuddle up / with every lamb
When the winter cold is biting, I find their wool exciting:
"Wham, bam -- sorry, ram!"

ALL: Standing on the hillside, watching all the sheep go by,
  Standing on the hillside, underneath a springtime sky,
EVANS: Brother you can't go to jail for what you're thinking
  Or for the "Ooooh" look in your eye.
ALL: You're only standing on the hillside, watching all the sheep,
  Watching all the sheep, watching all the sheep go by.

                         (Choir sing the Richard Li song.)


                         TEA IS ALWAYS ON MY MIND
Maybe I shouldn’t gulp so
When I have my morning cuppa;
Maybe I shouldn’t drink mo’
Even after I have supper;
Surely I could find a substitute
- I could try a lemon lime.
Tea is always on my mind;
Tea is always on my mind.

Well I guess I could try coffee,
Any hour from six to noon;
In the evening there is cocoa,
Underneath the chilly moon.
But when I get through my working day,
There is nothing else so fine:
Tea is always on my mind;
Tea is always on my mind.

Tell me, tell me that the kettle’s on the hob;
Give me, give me reason to keep working at my job,
At my job.

Maybe I shouldn’t gulp so
When I have my morning cuppa;
Maybe I shouldn’t drink mo’
Even after I have supper;
Surely I could find a substitute
- I could try a lemon lime.
Tea is always on my mind;
Tea is always on my mind.



                            (Choir sings African Trilogy.)
                             Choir sings Men of Harlech.
