George's flat in Paris lyrics

George's flat in Paris

ELIZABETH
How you've grown!

ALEX
It's been two years.

ELIZABETH
You should have phoned --
Your uncle isn't here.

ALEX
I might have guessed!

ELIZABETH
And such a splendid uniform!

ALEX (looking around the flat)
The same old paintings.

ELIZABETH
Madame will be so thrilled to meet you --
I'll go and tell her.

ALEX
"Giulietta Trapani"...

ELIZABETH (turning back)
Life has changed!
Since those two met
He lives life to the full!

ALEX
Well, good for him!

ELIZABETH
She has made him young again!

ALEX
Where is he now, then?

ELIZABETH
He's doing up the country villa --
They plan to live there.
Now, tell me, do you still like omelettes?
Won't be a moment!

ALEX
And so he got his wicked way with that Italian girl --
He hasn't lost his touch...

ROSE
Well, hello...

ALEX
I should have known
Where you were hiding --
You like the good life,
George likes trinkets!
God, what a fool
I was to love you!
What was all my searching for?
It's never hard to find a whore!

ROSE
Well, if it makes you happy, think it...

ALEX
You scheming bitch...

ROSE
The truth is we're a perfect pair.

ALEX
Because he's rich...

ROSE
Shout and scream --
I don't care...

ALEX
You could have let me know...!

ROSE
Your uncle's shown me new horizons...

ALEX
Well, didn't I?

ROSE
And as a lover he is perfect too.

ALEX
Another lie!

ROSE
He takes his time.
Unlike you.

ALEX
I wasn't good enough?

ROSE
Why can't you listen
And come to your senses?
It's George...
I really love George...
He's made me a
Better, fuller, stronger person,
I have never been as happy!

ALEX
Or, indeed, as wealthy.

ROSE
Look, I don't need your uncle's money!
And I could have a thousand lovers!
Yet I've been faithful and I'm happy --
More faithful than he'll ever be:
It's not as if he's married me...

ALEX (calming)
I'd better go...
I'm sorry...
It was a shock...

ROSE
Try and understand,
And it won't hurt you so much.

ALEX
At least admit you loved me once...

ROSE
Of course I did.
I may even love you now...
George gives me so much...
But he gets so little from me...
But with you I made an impression
That will last you a lifetime...
