Text heard on Sample:
 

Jenny, Helen, Ellen: We are three sisters who are not sisters, not sisters. We are three sisters who are orphans.
We are three sisters who are not sisters because we have not had the same mother or the same father, but because we are all three orphans we are three sisters who are not sisters.

Samuel, Sylvester: We are two brothers who are brothers, we have the same father and the same mother and as they are alive and kicking we are not orphans not at all, we are not even tall, we are not brave we are not strong but we never do wrong, that is the kind of brothers we are.
