You Were Dead, You Know lyrics

You Were Dead, You Know

CANDIDE
Oh.
Is it true?
Cunegonde! Cunegonde! Cunegonde!

CUNEGONDE
Oh.
Is it you?
Candide! Candide! Can...

CANDIDE
Oh.
Is it true?
Cunegonde!
Oh my love, dear love!

CUNEGONDE
Oh.
Is it you?
Candide!
Dear, my love!
(They fall into each other's arms.)

CANDIDE
Dearest, how can this be so?
You were dead, you know.
You were shot and bayoneted, too.

CUNEGONDE
That is very true.
Ah, but love will find a way.

CANDIDE
Then what did you do?

CUNEGONDE
We'll go into that another day.
Now let's talk of you.
You are looking very well.
Weren't you clever, dear, to survive?

CANDIDE
I've a sorry tale to tell;
I escaped more dead than alive.

CUNEGONDE
Love of mine, where did you go?

CANDIDE
Oh, I wandered to and fro...

CUNEGONDE
Oh, what torture, oh, what pain...

CANDIDE
Holland, Portugal and Spain...

CUNEGONDE
Ah, what torture...

CANDIDE
Holland, Portu...

CUNEGONDE
Ah, what torture...

CANDIDE
I would do it all again
To find you at last!

CANDIDE, CUNEGONDE
Reunited after so much pain;
But the pain is past.
We are one again!
We are one at last!
One again, one at last!
(They waltz with abandon around the room.)
