She'd Be Far Better Off with You lyrics

She'd Be Far Better Off with You

ALEX
I should never have come back here...

GEORGE
Oh, don't talk such nonsense!

ALEX
I'll bow out now --
It's the decent thing to do.

GEORGE
Don't be absurd.

ALEX
I'm a disaster...

GEORGE
Oh, come, come!

ALEX
...It wouldn't last a week --
She'd be far better off with you.

GEORGE
You two have your lives before you.

ALEX
It would end in murder...

GEORGE
I'm too old for her --
It's high time I withdrew.

ALEX
Your place is here.

GEORGE
The jowls are dropping...

ALEX
It's the light.

GEORGE
...The paunch needs propping up --
She'd be far better off with you.

BOTH
Your words are generous and selfless,
But alas untrue --
She'd be far better off with you.

ALEX
You are steeped in wit and wisdom.

GEORGE
Well, I've learnt the odd thing...

ALEX
You could teach George Bernard Shaw
A thing or two!

GEORGE
I had a go...

ALEX
You've dined with Garbo...

GEORGE
Only twice.

ALEX
...Translated "La Boheme" --
She'd be far better off with you.

GEORGE
You're atheletic.

ALEX
You're distinguished.

GEORGE
You don't cheat at croquet.

ALEX
You're more seasoned.

GEORGE
You can skate.

ALEX
You're in "Who's Who".

GEORGE
Just half an inch.

ALEX
We're talking drivel.

GEORGE
So we are.

BOTH
Can't we be civilized?
She'd be far better off with you.
Your words are generous and selfless,
But alas untrue.
It's only Rose that matters!
Just take a look; there's no comparison
Between us two --
She'd be far better off with you!
