Florence Quits lyrics

Florence Quits

Frederick: [Spoken]
Five games to one. It's all over.

[Sung]
So you got
What you want.
What a nasty ambition.
Set me up,
Pull me down,
Then exploit my condition.

I should have guessed, woman,
That if pressed, woman,
You're on nobody's side
But your own.
And you're behaving
Like a mere woman,
It's so clear, woman,
It's your sex!
Once they start
Getting old,
And getting worried,
They let fly,
Take it out
On the one
Who supports them--
That's you
I'm talking about.

Florence:
Who'd ever guess it?
Such a squalid little ending--
Watching you descending
Just as far as you can go.
I'm learning
Things I didn't want to know.

Frederick & Florence:
Who'd ever think it?
This would be the situation.

Frederick:
One more observation--

Frederick & Florence:
How'd we ever get this far
Before you showed me
What you really are?

Florence:
You'll be lost without me
To abuse like you're used to.

Frederick:
Go away!
Just get out!
Be someone else's
Parasite!
