Hop Frog:

        Tomorrow is the seasonal ball
        I propose costumes for you
        and the honourable ministers to wear



King:

        Yes?



Hop Frog:

        All dress as orangutans
        All your guests will run and scream
        with their mouths agape
        And try to hide
        And you, Sire, will have last laugh
        For such imperial cunning



        ---



Hop Frog:

        I will redress the wrong
        I will torture you
        I will burn you
        Dead



Tripitena:

        My prince
        My prince
        You light the fire of eternal fame
        Burn, monkeys
        Burn
