In Many Rooms in the House at Pau lyrics

In Many Rooms in the House at Pau

ROSE
This is what I ought to feel on stage...
Soaring up like snow-capped mountains...
I feel your beauty and your rage...
I could be those tumbling forests,
I could play those jagged hillsides...
Star of mountain,
Star of valley...

ALEX
Would Madam care for breakfast?
Will croissants and fresh coffee do?

Wonderful view!
Whenever we see those mountains,
We will think of me and you...

George insists on magnificent views.

ROSE
I think I should like your uncle...



ROSE
Alex, she's beautiful. Who is she?

ALEX
My aunt Delia. She was an actress too.

ROSE
Delia! Was she famous?

ALEX
Yes. But she died very young. That's why my uncle doesn't
come down here very often. Too many memories.

ROSE
Haven't I seen that somewhere before?

ALEX
Not the one you're thinking of. That's in the Louvre.
George did that one. Some people call it fraud, but he prefers to
think of it as a tribute.

ALEX (brandishing a rapier)
En garde!

ROSE (parrying with a tennis racket)
Fifteen love!

BOTH
Promise me today will never ever end!

ROSE (pulling out various tins)
Caviar! Anchovies! Peaches in brandy! We can have a banquet tonight!

ALEX
When he does get down here, George doesn't believe in having to rough it.

BOTH
I could get to like it here!
Let's not ever think of leaving!

ALEX
Look at this. Pierrot. Carmen.

For the ballroom? Or the bedroom?

ROSE
M?rim?e, "L'Occasion". I know this -- it's a wonderful play!

ALEX
Really?

ROSE
Let's do it. You can be the priest, I'll be Do?a Maria Colemenares.

ALEX
But I don't know anything about the theatre.

ROSE
I'll teach you. We'll do it. Tonight.

ALEX
"What are you doing? Pull yourself together..."

ROSE
This one is gorgeous!

ALEX (looking up)
It was her favorite dress...

ROSE
He must have loved her so much.

ALEX
Rose, leave things as they are...

ROSE
I can just see her...
I feel I know her...
