Duets: Gonna Pass Me A Law

CAROLINE
Gonna pass me a law
that night last longer.
Gonna pass me a law
Larry come home from Vietnam
wherever that is
gonna pass me a law
no woman can be my age
and not know enough
to read a map.
Gonna pass me a law
that my heathen daughter
don?t never get hurt
nor learn how to mind me,
nor learn how to mind
nobody cept herself.
Gonna pass me a law
say Nat King Cole
gotta come over my house
come over my house
come over every night
and stroke my soul.

NOAH
Wish me goodnight?

CAROLINE
That not my job.

NOAH
How come?
How come you?re so sad
and angry all the time?

CAROLINE
that ain?t your business, it just ain?t your business.
You?s a nosey child.
How come you like me, I ain?t never nice to you.

NOAH
That isn?t true! The cigarette.

CAROLINE
Right. The cigarette.

NOAH
My mama liked you.
I do too.
You?re implacable,
indestructible, mama said.
I?m always sad.
I like it that you?re always mad.
And I can tell you like me to.
At least I think you do.
