Naturally Bunthorne (Oscar Wilde lampoonie) remain unmarried at least to a woman. G&S had curious names for their characters that they lampooned!


In that case unprecedented,
Single I must live and die –
I shall have to be contented
With a tulip or lily!
(Takes a lily from button-hole and gazes affectionately at it.)

ALL. He will have to be contented With a tulip or lily!
In that case unprecedented (etc.)
Greatly pleased with one another,
To get married we/they decide.
Each of us/them will wed the other,
Nobody be Bunthorne's Bride!
