The Storm / C'est l'amour / To Find a Lover lyrics

The Storm / C'est l'amour / To Find a Lover

The Storm

DANTE:
Last week we're sailing back from Cuba
cargo full of coconuts,
balsa wood and rum.
Storm springs up and powerful waves,
taller than Ferris wheels,
pound us like a drum.
And we're keeling over starboard.
Then we're pitching over port.
Then the main-sheet splits
and the rigging cuts short
so I head for the keep
and break open the rum
and I curse at the wind
and I bitch at the waves
and I yell at the storm:
"Come on and get me!"
Got no fear of the wind.
Got no fear of the waves.
"I'm ready to go!
Take me!
I'm ready to go!"
Then all the sudden
like the wind dies down
and the sea goes flat
and my crewmen ask:
"How the hell you do that?
You must be Jesus Christ
or Neptune's whore."
They ask me:
"Can you walk on water?"
I tell them:
"Sure."
My uncle is the wind
and my cousins are the stars.
How's that for family connections?
My sister is the rain
and my mother is the sky
and my father is,
my father was...
Anyway,
So now we're stranded in Biloxi.
Ton of rotten coconuts,
crew without pay.
Once I get done settlin' bus'ness
I'm gonna take my money
and quit the sea.
Stay on land.
Settle in New York.
Maybe Chicago.
I was born to my ambitions.
I have natural charisma.
I could be mayor of Chicago.
I could be anything you ask me.
I want...
I want...


C'est l'amour / To Find a Lover

MARIE CHRISTINE:
Servants who envy their masters.

More powerful than her mother.

BASSES:
C'est l'amour
C'est l'amour
C'est l'amour

MARIE CHRISTINE:
To find a lover
I have something you must use
I call it: "Come to me" powder
Works on any man you choose
Sprinkle it on your handkerchief
Bring it close to his face and puff;
He will plead for your love,
He will take all you give.
He will never get enough.
He will never get enough...
To lose a lover
I have something you must eat.
I call it "Get-away Biscuit"
and its taste is bittersweet.
Swallow it whole a suppertime
with a sip of ginger beer;
By six on the clock on Saint Agatha's Eve
your lover will disappear
your lover will disappear...
What can make the strongest spirit bend?
What can make the weakest spirit strong?
What can fill the day with all the mysteries of night?
What is it we need as much as water air and light?
Oh, you know
Oh yes you know.
To keep a lover
I have something you must wear.
I call it "Stay-with-me Ribbon"
But it's not for your hair.
Use it to measure his petit prince;
Mark the ribbon, tie it in a knot.
Wear it 'round your neck
'til the day that you die
you will keep the love you've got.
You will keep the love you've got...

TENORS:
C'est l'amour mi mi ma-man
C'est l'amour.
