To whom It May Concern lyrics

To whom It May Concern

I’m to marry thurio
No!
I have a secret lover
Whom i do adore
By my pappy
Sent him off to war
My darlin’s name is
Eglamour
And all my passions do inform his mind

Valentine
(falsetto)
To whom...
(he clears his throat)
To whom shall i send this’

Silvia
You write it. I’ll take care of the rest. Make it fancy.

(valentine picks up a large feather
Quill pen and takes down what she says)

To whom it may concern me
And oh you do
Oh my darlin
My arms and legs and fingers and knees
Long to wrap around your chest and neck and back and legs
And my lips and tongue and teeth long to
Bite these words into your arms and back and ankles

Silvia (cont’d)
And elbows and neck
Do i make myself clear’
I want you
I wouldn’t know a spiritual relationship
If i tripped over it and broke my nose and
My foot and my heart and my hands
All reach out to you and say
Hi there

Save me, eglamour
(silvia lies on counter)
Save me.

(valentine takes a deep, nervous
Breath and repeats her letter,
Tapping it out on the wireless)

Valentine
To whom it may concern
And oh you do
Oh my darlin
My arms and legs and fingers and knees
Long to wrap around your chest and neck and back and legs
And my lips and tongue and teeth long to
Bite these words into your arms and back and ankles
And elbows and neck
Do i make myself clear
I want you

I wouldn’t know a spiritual relationship
If i tripped

(silvia reacts with all her body)

Over it, and broke my nose and
My foot and my heart and my hands
All reach out to you and say
Oh, save me,
Save me silvia, save me

(silvia sits up and reacts to his
Mistake)

Silvia
Eglamour.

Valentine
Eglamour.
(he taps out ‘eglamour’ In morse code)
Eglamour. How shall i send this, my lady’

Silvia
What are the rates’

Valentine
(he shows her a chart)
We have night rates and day rates. The day rates are
More expensive, however ...

/19/ night letter

Silvia
Night letter
So divine
Night letter
Come be mine
Nothing better than a
Hot night letter
Night letter
Oh so cool
Night letter
Hear me drool
Nothing wetter than a
Hot night letter
Did you remember to lick the stamp
Night letter
Did you remember to slap the flap
Night letter
Did you remember you have to say
S-w-a-k
Night letter
Mail it early
Night letter
Avoid the rush
Hope you get a
Night letter

Oh, my father would enforce me to marry a vain and foolish
Suitor of fabulous great wealth to stuff the coffers
Of his government and pay for the vain and foolish
War my father uses for his own ends.
Help me...

Valentine
Valentine.

(silvia falls into valentine’s arms)

Silvia
Help me, valentine.
The marriage is tomorrow
I have to be saved tonight.

Could you save me
Tonight at nine

Valentine
I could save you
Tomorrow at nine

Silvia
That’s too late too late
To escape my fate
Tomorrow noon is my wedding day
Come save me
I want to be very far away
Come save me
When the groom comes
To look for me
I didn’t r.s.v.p.

Valentine
Yes, i could save you
Tonight at eight

Silvia
Wel, tonight at eight
Would be just great

Valentine
I’m your man now
Let me make my plan now

Silvia
It’s a high tower they keep me prisoner in.

Valentine
A high tower’

Silvia
A very very high tower.

Valentine
Let me think
It’s a high tower
And you’ve got to be saved
By tonight at eight

Valentine silvia
Let me think
Think baby, think think baby
I got to think
Oh yah
Think baby, think think baby
I got to get my thoughts
Together
Think baby, think think baby
I got to get organized
Think baby, think think baby

Valentine (cont’d) silvia (cont’d)
I think i got it
I think i got it
(screams at him)
Think baby, think think baby
Oh yes i got it
I know i got it
Think baby, think think baby

Talkin’ Bout a night ladder

Good and strong

Silvia & valentine
(joyous)
Night ladder
Ten feet long

Nothing gladder
Than a long
Night ladder

Silvia
Will i see ya
Tonight at eight

Valentine
Tonight at eight
Would be just great

Valentine & silvia
Nothing sadder than a
Short night ladder

Night ladder
Good and strong

Night ladder
Ten feet long

O baby

O baby

O baby

O baby

(guard enters left and carries
Silvia off down left still singing)

O baby

O baby

Valentine
O baby ‘ Baby ‘ Baby ‘ Come on back

(silvia re-enters and they emrace.
Proteus enters, unobserved)

Silvia
I came in here to write to my lover eglamour.
Instead i found a truer love.

(they kiss. The guard enters left
And carries silvia off again)
Adieu.

Valentine
(whispers joyously)
Eight!

(launce has followed proteus.
Speed enters down left from the
House and sees launce. They yell
Greetings to each other, embrace
And all in a pile of bodies left
Center)

Launce
Speed

Valentine
(to proteus)
How does your lady’ How thrives your love’

Launce
His tales of love were wont to weary you;

Proteus
I know you joy not in love discourse.

Valentine
Ay, proteus, but that life is altered now:

Speed
He has done penance for condemning love,
Love hath chased sleep from his enthralled eyes
And made them watchers of his own heart’s sorrow
