The Capulet/Montague Rag

by
Alys Sheffield
April, 2005 (A.S. XXXIX)
(To the tune of: Matchmaker, Matchmaker, from Fiddler on the Roof)

Capulet, Capulet, why seem so gay?
When your temptress spawn led my boy astray?
Capulet, Capulet, this will not end
Until we've had our revenge!

Montague, Montague, your mangy churl
Trespassed and plundered my darling girl!
Montague, Montague, look what you've done!
Oh, you should have leashed your son!

Dear Baron, they killed my baby!
Sweet Baroness, it's their fault!
If we must be here together,
At least won't you sit them below the salt?

Montague, Capulet, we won't forget!
No peace will come to this city yet!
This feast in honor of that child of mine...
Won't mend my poor heart! Or fix your dead tart!
My boy will be missed!
He should have been fixed!
Oh, would we could turn back time!


"This was written to be performed as a duet at the Barony of the Westermark's "Funeral Feast in Honor of Romeo and Juliet" [April 23, 2005]. It was sung by Ivone [Pons Leyer] and Alys [Sheffield] as the voices of Lady Montague (blue text) and Lady Capulet (red text)." [The black text is the two voices together] -- Alys Sheffield
