I've Decided to Marry You lyrics

I've Decided to Marry You

Phoebe:
Mr. Navarro!
Forgive my intrusion!
I needed to see you,
And see you today!
Mr. Navarro!
Mr. Navarro!
I have arrived at a stunning
Conclusion,
And i feared i would lose my
Resolve
If i didn't come here directly
To say:

I've decided to marry you!
I've decided to marry you!
I've decided though henry's
Gone
That life goes on for me!
I have thoroughly thought it
Through,
And the man that i want is you,
Though it's true there are
Quite a few
Who'd strongly disagree!

Nonetheless i will marry you!
I confess that i'm frightened
To.
But unless i am wrong you
Long
For love as much as i!
This is quite unconventional,
I admit,
But why should that matter
A whit?
And if you do not say yes at
Once i think i'll die!

Monty:
Miss d'ysquith, you've rendered me
Speechless! May i call you phoebe?

Sibella:
What am i doing here?
This could be dangerous. If
I'm discovered,
Imagine the scandal,
And i couldn't handle
A scandal so risible.
I'll stay invisible, still as can be.

But what's going on in there?
I can hear voices.
I recognize monty,
But is that a woman?
And if that's a woman,
Then what is she doing here?
Is it the cousin?
I wish i could see!

If it's that cousin,
It might just be business.
It's family business,
And none of my business.
But why is she here
In the home of a bach'lor?
Of course, one could point out
That i'm here, as well!

But does she not realize
This situation
Puts her reputation
Severely in question?
The merest suggestion
Would cause a sensation!
And i cannot hear,
Which is hell!

Phoebe:
I'll be warned not to marry you!

Sibella:
I could go home.

Phoebe:
I'll be scorned if i marry you!

Sibella:
I should go home.

Phoebe:
Still, i've decided-

Phoebe & sibella:
To live my life-

Sibella:
And be a wife-

Phoebe & sibella:
Again!

Phoebe:
Who'd believe how my life
Has turned?

Sibella:
I should be off

Phoebe:
After grieving, i've quickly
Learned

Sibella:
But he makes me laugh

Phoebe:
There is

Phoebe & sibella:
Nothing can bend the will
Like half-castilian men!

Phoebe:
And there's goodness to
Spare in you-

Sibella:
Isn't this fun?

Phoebe:
And a gentleness there in you.

Sibella:
Isn't she done?

Phoebe:
You have taken a wounded bird
And taught her how to fly!

Sibella:
Fam'ly business, my eye!

Phoebe & sibella:
This is quite unconventional,
Is it not?
Rather a turn in the plot.

Phoebe:
And so will i be your fiancee?!

Sibella:
Why don't you send the cow
Away?

Monty:
Phoebe, darling!

Phoebe & sibella:
When i recall this day
I think i'll cry!

Phoebe:
What was that?!

Monty:
What was what?

Phoebe:
That sound! Is there someone here?

Monty:
Oh, pay no attention, that's...my new manservant, he's just...finding his way around.

(toward sibella)

I'll be with you in a moment...wadsworth.

Isn't this madness
Who could forsee
How one trick of timing
Could ruin it all?
One in the parlor,
One in the bedroom,
Nothing between them
But me and a wall!

Look at phoebe!
Noble and pious,
My esteem for her only grows.
But when i am with phoebe
I am on fire thinking of
Sibella!
Full of desire,
Passion, and dare i say it?
Love!
But when i'm with sibella,
Whom do i admire?
None but phoebe!
Perfect and lovely!
Who couldn't love her?
Heaven knows!
'Round and 'round and 'round
It goes!

(to phoebe)

How happy i'd be to be at your
Disposal,
My darling, of course, i
Accept your proposal!

Phoebe:
Now we should kiss!

Monty:
That would be bliss!

Phoebe:
Darling, but first i'll say this:
I've decided to marry you!

Monty:
Phoebe!

Sibella:
What are they doing?

Phoebe:
I've decided to marry you!

Monty:
Sibella!

Sibella:
What are they doing?!

Phoebe:
Let the trumpeter call,
A wall will-

Sibella: (at the same time)
I wish this wall would-

Monty: (at the same time)
Phoebe!

Phoebe, sibella, monty:
Fall and set me free!

Monty:
Then again, there's sibella!

Sibella:
Monty!

Phoebe:
I've decided to marry you!

Monty:
Yes, i'd be honored to marry
You!

Sibella:
Monty, oh, monty!

Monty:
I will marry you, phoebe!

Phoebe:
I will marry you!

Phoebe, monty, sibella:
Look what you've done to me!

Phoebe:
Monty!

Monty:
Phoebe!

Sibella:
Monty!

Monty:
Wadsworth!

Phoebe:
Monty! Monty!

Sibella:
Monty! Monty!

Phoebe & sibella:
Monty! Monty! Monty! Monty!

Monty: (to phoebe)
I'm grateful, indeed,
For your gracious bestowment!

(to sibella)

Yes, wadsworth, i told you,
I'll be just a moment!

Phoebe:
Now, monty, dear, i think i
Now should go!

Monty:
Oh? Oh!

Phoebe:
But i still want to marry you!

Monty:
Even so...

Phoebe:
I've decided to marry you!

Sibella:
Just go!

Phoebe:
How i'm longing to marry you!

Sibella:
Hello!

Monty:
Yes, i'm delighted to marry you,
Marry you, marry-
A shame you must-

Phoebe: (at the same time)
I've decided to marry you,
Marry you, marry-
A shame i must-

All:
Go!
Go!

Sibella:
Go!

Monty:
Go!

Sibella:
Go!

Phoebe:
I'll-

All:
Go!
