You lyrics

You

[[Addison]]
Give them just an inch or so,
Till they feel fulfilled.
Ask a little quid pro quo--
Then you'll get your guild.

That's the way it has to go:
Artists, yes, need patrons.
Patrons, though, need matrons
Yearning to be thrilled.
Wait and see the house I'm going to build.

[[Mrs. Stotesbury]]
Look at it!

[[Aristocrats]]
Oooohhh!

[[Matrons]]
Look at it! Look at it!

[[Mrs. Stotesbury]]
Hollis, darling, you may put me at the head of the
list of sponsors for your artists' colony-- if Mr.
Mizner will design it, of course.

[[Addison]]
Just as soon as my schedule permits.

[[Hollis]]
You--where have you been all my life?

[[Mr. and Mrs. Stotesbury]]
Look at it!

[[Four Aristocrats]]
Look at it!

[[All the Aristocrats]]
Look at it!

[[Hollis]]
You--you're the answer to my prayers.

[[Mrs. Stotesbury]]
Notice the details!

[[Aristocrats]]
Ahhh...

[[Hollis]]
You--you're one in a million.

[[Mr. Stotesbury]]
What's that? It's enormous!

[[Addison]]
Remember the breakfast nook?

[[Hollis]]
You--where have you been all my life?

[[Mrs. Stotesbury]]
Wait til Lily Wanamaker sees it.

[[Aristocrat #1, Mrs. Geist]]
James, I want a house.

[[Mr. Geist]]
We have a house.

[[Mrs. Geist]]
I mean I want a house like hers.

[[Mr. Geist]]
Like that?

[[Mrs. Geist]]
LIke that, only different.

[[Aristocrat #2, Mrs. Trumbauer]]
Edgar,
I want a house.

[[Mrs. Geist]]
Write out a check.

[[Mr. Trumbauer]]
We have a house in Newport.

[[Mrs. Trumbauer]]
Yes.

[[Mr. Trumbauer]]
We have a house in London.

[[Mrs. Trumbauer]]
Yes.
I want a house down here.

[[Aristocrat #3, Mrs. Dupont]]
George, I want a house.

[[Mrs. Trumbauer]]
Write out a check.

[[Mrs. Dupont]]
I know we have a house,
I mean a winter house,
A house like Eva's
Only maybe with a swimming pool.

[[Aristocrat #4, Mr. Wanamaker]]
Lovey,
Let's build a house.

[[Mrs. Dupont]]
Write out a check.

[[Mrs. Wanamaker]]
Why build a house?

[[Mr. Wanamaker]]
Why not?
Jim is building,
Edgar's building,
Everybody--

[[Addison]]
You--

[[Mrs. Wanamaker]]
I'll write a check.

[[Mrs. Stotesbury]]
I hate hotels.

[[Addison]]
--where have you been all my life?

[[Mrs. Stotesbury]]
We'll never have to stay at this hotel again.

[[Mrs. Wanamaker]]
I hate hotels.

[[Addison]]
You--?

[[Mrs. Wanamaker]]
Hotels are boring.

[[Addison]]
You're the answer to my prayers.

[[Mrs. Trumbauer]]
I hate hotels.

[[All the Aristocrats]]
I want a house!

[[Mrs. Wanamaker]]
Lovey, what's the man's name?

[[Addison]]
You--

[[Mr. Wanamaker]]
Misner.

[[Addison]]
You're one in a million!

[[Mrs. Wanamaker]]
Mr. Misner--

[[Hollis]
Mizner.

[[Addison]]
You--

[[Hollis]]
You--

[[Both]]
Where have you been all my life?

[[Hollis]]
You--

[[Addison]]
You--

[[Hollis]]
You have the vision--

[[Addison]]
They have the money--

[[Hollis]]
We--

[[Addison]]
We--

[[Both]]
Both have a dream.

[[Hollis]]
Me,
I'd say we're a team.

[[Addison]]
Me, too.

[[Both]]
Who knew that you'd come into my life?
Where have you been?

[[Aristocrats]]
Ooh! Look at it!
Ooh! Look at it! Look at it! Look at it!
Mr. Mizner...
Mr. M..
Addie...
Addie darling...

[[Mrs. Geist]]
You understand, we'll need
A cottage for the staff.

[[Addison]]
Of course.

[[Mr. Trumbauer]]
My wife insists we build
The house around a courtyrad.

[[Addison]]
Understood.

[[Aristocrats]]
We'll want a ballroom...
Include a bowling alley...
A conservatory...
A garage for the cars...
Could you add a guest house?...
Don't forget the wine cellar...
How about a breezeway?...
And there has to be a tennis court--

[[Hollis]]
Ladies and gentleman, I assure you that Mr. Mizner
will build each of you the precise house that you desire.

[[Addison and Hollis]]
You--
Where have you been all my life?

[[Mrs. Dupont]]
The ambiance--!

[[Mrs. Wanamaker]]
The travertine--!

[[Mrs. Trumbauer]]
The cupola--!

[[Addison, Hollis, and Aristocrats]]
You--

[[All the Matrons]]
Addie--!

[[Addison and Hollis]]
--you're the answer to my prayers...

[[Mrs. Stotesbury]]
I'm so proud that ours was the first of his houses--

[[All]]
You, you're one in a million--

[[Addison]]
And with your commission--

[[Hollis]]
And your ambition--

[[Both]]
And their tradition
Of acquisition,
We'll build

[[All]]
A place
For a brand new world to play.
Where have you been all my life?
Don't go away!
