If You Loved Me Truly

If You Loved Me Truly lyrics

If You Loved Me Truly

CLAUDINE:
I'm always happy when I am dancing.
I have no cares, I have no ills,
I feel like a bird above the hills,
When dancing, my cup of happiness fills
Right up to my brain.

BORIS:
When a woman has a man, listen here,
She should think of nothing but him.

3 GIRLS:
Claudine, go on a strike!

3 BOYS:
You women are all alike.

CLAUDINE:
I'd love to make a career of dancing.
I'd dance so well, I'd go so far,
They'd cheer me from here to Zanzibar
And in ev'ry dance hall I'd be a star,
The belle of the ball!

BOYS:
When a woman has a man, her career
Should amount to nottling at all.

3 GIRLS:
Go out and get your fame!

3 BOYS:
You women are all the same.

2ND & 3RD GIRLS:
If you could have a career, Claudine,
The world would be at your feet.

1ST GIRL:
If you could have a career, Claudine,
Mon dieu, the men you could meet!

2ND GIRL:
A member of the Minist?re,

1ST GIRL:
A South African millionaire,

3RD GIRL:
Our newly elected president,

1ST GIRL:
I hope he isn't impotent!

2ND GIRL:
A viscount who's filthy rich,

1ST GIRL:
A Rothschild, no matter which,

3RD GIRL:
The Nizam of Hyderabad,

1ST GIRL:
The Prince of wales can still be had!

GIRLS:
Shut up, shut up!

3 GIRLS & BORIS:
Shut up, yourself, you dirty pup!

2ND GIRL:
The dear Duc d'Anjou
Would give you a bike built for two.

1ST GIRL:
The Rajah of Mysore
Would give you a bed for three or four.

3RD GIRL:
The Earl of Athlone
Would give you a bathtub of your own.

1ST GIRL:
And good King Leopold
Would give you a toothpick.

CLAUDINE:
Give me a toothpick?

1ST GIRL:
Made of gold!

BORIS:
Stop, Stop this insane, this endless hullabaloo
While I explain a sculptor's point of view:
Praxiteles was a sculptor. He had a girl,
She didn't want to be a dancer.
Miclielangelo was a sculptor. He had a girl,
She didn't want to be a dancer.
And I, the greatest sculptor of them all, I have a girl,
Does she want to be a dancer?

CLAUDINE:
Yes is the answer!

3 GIRLS:
Yes is the answer!

CLAUDINE:
I want to be a dancer and kick up my heels.

BORIS:
But if you're a dancer, who'll cook my meals?

CLAUDINE:
I want to be a dancer and wear pretty frocks.

3 BOYS:
But if you're a dancer, who'll darn his socks?

3 GIRLS:
You're just as bad as he is!

3 BOYS:
You're just as mad as she is!

3 GIRLS:
You're just as bad!

3 BOYS:
You're just as mad!

3 GIRLS:
You're just as bad!

3 BOYS:
You're just as mad!

CLAUDINE:
But not as sad as I,
Boris, you know why.

VERSE

SHE:
You don't love me, 'tis clear to see.

HE:
I don't love you? You don't love me.

SHE:
You only think of your life, never of mine.

HE:
I only think of my life? What a line!

SHE:
If you loved me,

HE:
If you loved me!

SHE:
If you loved me,

HE:
If you loved me!

SHE:
If you

HE:
If you

SHE:
If you

HE:
If you

SHE:

HE:

SHE:

SHE:

HE:

REFRAINS l, 2, AND 3

SHE:
If you loved me truly, if you love
Then you would not, should not, could not
So selfish be.

HE:
If you loved me truly, you must agree
That you would not, should not, could not
Say that to me.

SHE:
(1) You freak, you fool!
(2) You pig, you pill!
(3) You scourge, you scum!

HE:
(1) You molecule!
(2) You imbecile!
(3) You vacuum!

BOTH:
Nonetheless, I love you, love you truly, truly,
Nonetheless, I love you, love you truly, truly.
