The Mikado
But very much better / Their lot it must be / Than that of the person / I'm making this verse on, / Whose head there's a curse on -- / Alluding to me!

The Pirates of Penzance
In enterprise of martial kind, / When there was any fighting, / He led his regiment from behind -- / He found it less exciting.
The Gondoliers
If I were Fortune -- which I'm not -- / B should enjoy A's happy lot, / And A should die in miserie / That is, assuming I am B.
The Mikado
(Very loud) With cat-like tread, / Upon our prey we steal; / In silence dread, / Our cautious way we feel.
