Love Is Blind lyrics

Love Is Blind

MENDEL
Sit down, my dear
I hear you have a problem
I?m sure you?re not disgusting or indiscreet
Take a load off your feet-

TRINA
Love is a mess
So?s my son, expressly to hurt me
Marvin, my ex-
You?ve seen him for years-
Told me over the phone to tell you my fears
Do you only treat queers?

MENDEL
Breathe deep, my dear
You?ll find me understanding
Your pain is a priori
Unfold you untold story
Now to break bread
Loosen your glands
Put your head in my hands

TRINA
I?m everything he wanted
It?s time I put it all together
The date was set
My father let my marry
I married. I?
Then Marvin came from work
Sat me down on the bed
He told me how he loved me
How needed, that thought valued me
I have?

MENDEL
What?

MARVIN (as Trina mouths this)
Syphilis

TRINA
He said

MENDEL
Good

TRINA
I have

MENDEL
Yes?

MARVIN (Trina mouths)
Syphilis

TRINA
It?s true

MENDEL
Good

TRINA
I had something rotten
Which appears thought now it?s well forgo, an?

MARVIN
Maybe, darling, so do you

TRINA
Maybe, darling, so do you

TRINA (to Marvin)
I am probably diseased

MENDEL
You?re a lovely girl

TRINA (to Marvin)
And so easily appeased

MENDEL
What a lovely girl, though she?s probably diseased

TRINA
He took pains to not excited us
He explains I?ve?

MARVIN
Hepatitis

TRINA
Too

MARVIN, JASON, AND WHIZZER
Hepa hepa hepatitis hepatitis hepatitis

MENDEL
Love is blind
Love can tell a million stories
Love?s unkind
Spiteful in a million ways

TRINA
Then I stayed home from work
Took good care of my men
They faked despair, they wet their bed,
They combed their hair, they acted dead
One said?

MENDEL
Yes?

JASON
Daddy is a prick

MENDEL
What?

TRINA
He said?

MENDEL
Yes?

JASON
Daddy isn?t mine

MENDEL
Good

TRINA
He filled my coats
With candies and notes,
With ?Will you be my valentine??

MARVIN (To Whizzer)
Will you be my valentine?

TRINA
This gets harder to believe

MENDEL
You?re a damaged girl

TRINA
I?ve a scalpel up my sleeve

ALL
What a damaged girl

MENDEL
Do not ever slit your wrists

TRINA
I?ve missed him; he?s still missing
Don?t make noise, but daddy?s kissing
Boys

ALL
Petty, petty, petty, petty

MENDEL AND TRINA
Love is blind
Love can tell a million stories
Love?s unkind
Spiteful in a million ways


ALL
Love is blind
Love can tell a million stories
Love?s unkind
Spiteful in a million ways

MARVIN/ OTHERS
Love is crazy/ Love-
Love is often boring
Love stinks/ Love-
Love is pretty often debris
When you find/ Love-
What you find
Then never, never, never, never, never/ Love-
Do it over again

Love reads like a bad biography/ Love-
All the names are changed to protect the innocent/ Love-

ALL
Love is blind

MENDEL
My name is Mendel
I treat her husband
I think she?s very insecure
But so am I
I?ve never married
Work, work is my passion
Or perhaps that?s an alibi

(speak)
I don?t care to discuss it.

(sing)
I think she?s charming
I think she?s eager
That?s unprofessional and mean
But still it?s true

ALL
His name is Mendel

WHIZZER
Ah-ah

MENDEL
Return next Friday
I admit I admire you
