Tune of the Day: Oh! a Private Buffoon is a Light-Hearted Loon
This song is taken from Act II of Gilbert and Sullivan's 1888 comic opera The Yeoman of the Guard. It is sung by Jack Point, a strolling jester.
Oh! a private buffoon is a light-hearted loon,
If you listen to popular rumour;
From the morn to the night he's so joyous and bright,
And he bubbles with wit and good humour!
Thanks to Sherry for suggesting this piece! By the way, more of Sir Arthur Sullivan's songs are now in preparation!
