Mountain Duet lyrics

Mountain Duet

Florence:
This is the one situation
I wanted most to avoid
Nothing I say will convince him
This isn't a trick.

Anatoly:
A drink on clear moonlit night--
I relax, she smiles,
There's something peculiar
Going on.

Florence:
So through no fault of my own
I'm stuck here to carry the can.
Embarrassed, uncertain, marooned.

Anatoly:
Now she can't be working for them--
I mean us--
She seems to know what she's doing,
But where is he?

Florence:
He has to turn up,
He wanted this meeting,
Didn't he?

Anatoly:
Maybe he's scared,
But he didn't seem scared
In the game.

Florence:
Oh, I just couldn't care less.
He can go right ahead,
Go and wreck his career,
I know I've done my best.

Anatoly:
Well, at least
She's a good looking spy.

Florence:
What if my Russian friend
Thinks that my plans
Are more of an intimate kind?
If I don't say something
And soon
He'll go.
Maybe I'm on nobody's side!

Anatoly:
Listen, I hate to break up the mood.
Get to the point,
Begin the beguine.
Haven't you noticed
We are a protagonist short,
In this idyllic,
Well-produced scene?

Florence:
He couldn't wait
To join you up here.
Maybe he walked--
Cable cars scare him.

Anatoly:
Never mind him,
I haven't missed him so far.

Both:
Maybe it won't do any harm
To struggle on without his charm.
Funny how all at once I feel
That he can go jump off the mountain--
I won't care!

Florence:
This is the one situation
I wanted most to avoid.

Anatoly:
My dear opponent--
I really can't imagine why.

Florence:
So I am not dangerous then?
What a shame.

Anatoly:
No, you're not dangerous.^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Florence:
Who could think that of you?^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^You--

Both:
You are so strange.
Why can't you be
What you want to be?
You should be scheming,
Intriguing,
Too clever by half!

Anatoly:
I have to hand it to you
For you've managed
To make me forget
Why I ever agreed on this farce. Florence:
I don't know why Know why

Both:
I can't think of anything
I would rather do
Than be wasting my time
On mountains with you.

Frederick:
Who'd ever think it?
Such a very pretty setting.
Tell me what's the betting,
Very pretty plotting, too.
No matter--
I've done all your work for you.

Florence: [Spoken]
Freddie.

Frederick:
Who'd ever guess it?
Daughter in collaboration
With the very nation
Gave her father third degree.
Where's Daddy, dead,
Or in the KGB?

[Spoken]
While my second has been curling up with my
opponent, I have agreed to new terms with
Global Television, which in short means more money--
for you as well, but that can't be helped. Therefore,
this meeting is unnecessary. The match can continue
and we don't have to be friends.
