Marvin at the Psychiatrist (A Three-Part Mini-Opera) lyrics

Marvin at the Psychiatrist (A Three-Part Mini-Opera)

JASON: My father says that love
Is the most beautiful thing in the world.
I think games are,
I think chess is the most
Beautiful thing,
Not love.

WHIZZER: (speaking) Marvin at the Psychiatrist, a three-part mini opera. Part One.

MENDEL: (singing) Do you love him'

MARVIN: Sorta kinda.

MENDEL: Do you need him'

MARVIN: Sorta kinda.
He makes me smile a lot,
Especially at mealtime.
It makes me feel I'm sort of smart.

MENDEL: Mm-hmm. Is he special'

MARVIN: He's delightful.

MENDEL: And romantic'

MARVIN: Yes, but spiteful. And yet it seems that so am I.

MENDEL: Just enjoy what you can.
Love the boy, not the man.

MARVIN: Man' sorta stylish.

MENDEL: Kinda very'

MARVIN: (speaking) Mmm, very very sorta.

MENDEL: (singing) And kind of hard to describe'

MARVIN: (speaking) Yes, you know, I think that's true.

MENDEL: When he's naked,-

MARVIN: Yes'

MENDEL: Does he thrill you'

MARVIN: Yes!

MENDEL: Is he vicious'

MARVIN: Yes!

MENDEL: (thinks) Yes. I think he's sorta kinda mean.
But I love him, and I need it.
If he loved me, I'd concede it.

Don't despise what you feel.
Love the friend, not the heel.

MARVIN: Heel'

MENDEL: He's sometimes worthless'

MARVIN: Sometimes evil.

MENDEL: Sometimes smarmy'

WHIZZER: (speaking) Part Two.

MENDEL: (singing) It's queer, Mr. Marvin- sorry.

MARVIN: Jesus'

MENDEL: Strange, Mr. Marvin,
How your wife- your ex-wife's meager glories
Coupled with her tragic stories,
Moves me in unreported ways.

MARVIN: She's a very good woman.
She's a wonderful woman.

MENDEL: Do you mind that'
She was here to speak of Jason, and I find that
I hope Jason acts out more,
Cause there's a few more things we need explore.

MARVIN: (speaking) No, I understand.

MENDEL: Good! Very good. Very, very good!
I feel a lot better already.
Going on' (singing) Was she a vicious woman'

MARVIN: No.

MENDEL: Did she beat the child'

MARVIN: No!

MENDEL: Did she ever drive you wild'

MARVIN: No.

MENDEL: Never'

MARVIN: No.

MENDEL: Never'

MARVIN: No.

MENDEL: Never-never-never-never'

MARVIN: No.

MENDEL: Never'

MARVIN: No.

MENDEL: Never'

MARVIN: No, no, no!

MENDEL: Was she faithful' be objective.

MARVIN: Well, yes.

MENDEL: She was faithful!

MARVIN: Yes.

MENDEL: And her last caress was:

MARVIN: Careless.

MENDEL: You mean, 'careful'.

MARVIN: Careful, not to show she cared.

MENDEL: So you weren't prepared
For the crying,
And the screaming.

MARVIN: And the beating of the breast!
(speaking) I don't want to be rude.

MENDEL: (singing) Does she sleep in the nude'

MARVIN: ...No. Going on.

MENDEL: Did you like that'
Would she change it if she knew you didn't like that'
Did she wear a negligee'
Could you blow and it would blow away'
I don't mean to interfere.
I would like to make that very clear.

WHIZZER: (speaking) Part Three.

MARVIN: (singing) My son's distressing.

JASON: My father's snide.

MARVIN: I'm convalescing.

JASON: He's morbid and dissatisfied.

MARVIN: What should I do now'

JASON: He loves another.

MARVIN: I agree.

JASON: I love my mother.

MARVIN: Why not me' we go to ball games.

JASON: The ball is tossed.

MARVIN: The pitcher's handsome.

JASON: And our team lost.

MARVIN: Is that my problem' should I be blamed for that'

JASON: Explore museums.

MARVIN: Admire art.

JASON: We stand together.

MARVIN: But we stand there looking miles apart.
How do I reach him'
What words of wisdom'
What should I do now'

JASON: My father says that love
Is the most beautiful thing in the world.
I think games are,
I think chess is the most
Beautiful thing,
Not love.

MENDEL: (speaking) Marvin at the Psychiatrist, a three-part mini opera.
The End.
