Natasha & Bolkonskys lyrics

Natasha & Bolkonskys

NATASHA
I know they'll like me
They can't help but like me
Everyone has always like me
His father, my Andrey's father
His sister, my Andrey's sister
There in no reason for them not to like me

Are the Prince and Princess at home?

SERVANT
The Prince in not receiving,
But the Princess begs you to walk up

MARY
Oh
Oh, hello
Won't you come in

NATASHA
Hello

(Natasha and Mary awkwardly move to a table in silence)

MARY
And from the first glance I do not like Natasha
Too fashionably dressed
Frivolous and vain
Her beauty, youth, and happiness
My brother's love for her

And my father -

BOLKONSKY
I do not wish to see her!

MARY
I know at any moment he might indulge in some freak

NATASHA
I'm sorry the Price is still ailing

BOLKONSKY
Songstress!

NATASHA
I am not afraid of anyone

But such hesitation
Such unnatural manners

And from the first glance I do not like Princess Mary
Too plain and affected
Insolent and dry
I shrink into myself
Assume an offhand air

MARY
Which alienates me still more

NATASHA & MARY
Constrained and strained
Constrained and strained
Constrained and strained
Irksome
Irksome

(The Prince enters in his dressing gown)

BOLKONSKY
Ah! Ah Madam!
Countess Rostova, if I am not mistaken-
Oh! Oh I beg you to excuse me, excuse me, my costume, this dressing gown-
I did not know, my poor girl
God is my witness, I did not know you had honored us with a visit
I came in such a costume only to see my daughter
God is my witness, I didn't know
My poor girl

MARY
And he looked at her once
Head to toe
And left muttering

NATASHA
I must take my leave

MARY
Please wait -

Dear Natalie
I want you to know how glad I am my brother has found happiness

NATASHA
Is that the truth?
I think it is not convenient to speak of that now
Dear Princess

MARY
She said
With such dignity and coldness

NATASHA
Though I felt tears choking me

What have I said, what have I done?
Crying like a child
Oh, they were so awful!
Oh, it all hurts so terribly
Andrey
Where are you?
