(Queen)
Lionel, take this down:
His Royal Highness, Christopher Rupert Windermere Vladimir Carl
Alexander Francois Reginald Lancelot Herman—

(Lionel) —Herman?

(Queen) —Herman, Gregory James— he'll thank us for it later— is giving a ball!

(Lionel)
The Prince is Giving a Ball!
His Royal Highness, Christopher Rupert, son of Her Majesty, Queen
Constantina, Charlotte Ermantrude Guinevere Maizy—

(Stepmother) —Maizy?

(Lionel) —Maizy, Marguerite Ann... is giving a ball!

(Townspeople)
The Prince is giving a ball! The Prince is giving a ball!

(Stepmother)
They've spread the message far and wide, the Prince is giving a ball!
They say he wants to find a bride, he may find one at the ball!

(Calliope)
If only he'd propose to me!

(Minerva)
I wish that he'd propose to me!

(Stepmother)
Just leave the hair and clothes to me!

(Stepmother, Calliope, Minerva)
The Prince is giving a Ball!

(Lionel)
Now if you please, the Crown decrees some fois de soir with frills,
A silky sateen in aubergine, a red if someone spills!

A surfeit of meat, a side of ham, and lots of beef filets,
Some marbleized steaks, a rack of lamb, and veal you raise to braise!

Limburger-Swiss and Gourmandise, Cheddar, Gruyere, and Bleu,
Chunks of Swiss in barrels, please, make sure that it's 'holy', too!

Puddings, and pies, and rum souffles, succulent chocolate rounds,
Cream puffs they can chew away to gain some royal pounds!

(All)
The Prince is giving a ball!
The Prince is giving a ball!

(Instrumental)

(All)
The Prince is giving a ball!
The Prince is giving a ball!

(Lionel)
His Royal Highness—200 orchids, 400 poppies, 600 roses, 800 lilies—
Christopher Rupert— 1,000 oranges, 2 000 plums—
Windermere Vladimir Carl Alexander - raspberry, blueberry, strawberry, gooseberry—
Francois Reginald Lancelot Herman, son of Her Majesty Queen Constantina—
Chocolate and cheddar and Charlotte and Maizy— son of His Caveat, King Maximillian Godfrey Ladislav Leopold Sydney—

(All)
—Sydney?!

(Lionell)
SYDNEY!!

(All) Is giving a ball!

(Cinderella)
The Prince is giving a ball!
