[chorus]
faithful lover george

[tuptim, spoken]
who is looking like angel to eliza. they have all escaped from wicked simon and make happy reunion. topsy glad that simon die, topsy dance for joy. i tell you what harriet beecher stowa say that topsy say: “i specks i’se de wickedest critter in de world!” but i do not believe topsy is wicked critter. because i too am glad for death of king. of any king who pursues a slave who is unhappy and wish to join her lover. and, your majesty, i wish to say to you… your majesty and honorable guests… i will tell you end of story. is very sad ending. buddha has saved eliza. but with the blessings of buddha also comes sacrifice.

[chorus]
poor little eva
poor little eva
poor unfortunate child
[tuptim, spoken]
is buddha’s wish that eva come to him and thank him personally for saving of eliza and baby. and so she die and go to arms of buddha. [chorus]
poor little eva
poor little eva
poor unfortunate child

[chorus]
praise to buddha
praise to buddha
