What Does A Lover Pack? lyrics

What Does A Lover Pack?

Julia
My heart is breaking

Proteus
Then you’re in love

Julia
Is your heart breaking’
(she sits on suitcase)

Proteus
Mine doesn’t have to
‘cause i packed my heart away

(the ensemble enters with a
Large straw basket)

What does a lover pack’

Ensemble
Pack in the sack that he’ll stack upon his back

Proteus
What does a lover pack’

Ensemble
Bring in the sling that he’ll swing beneath his wing

Proteus
What does a lover pack’

Ensemble
Sag ‘neath the swag that he’ll drag into his bag

Proteus
In his sack

Ensemble
Please don’t pain yourself
I don’t want you to strain yourself

Proteus
What does a lover bring

Ensemble
Bon-bons and sweet mints and boxes of candy

Proteus
What does a lover bring’

Ensemble
You’ll need a toothbrush with all of that candy

Proteus
What does a lover bring’

Ensemble
Roses and daisies and jack-in-the-pulpits

Proteus
In his sling

Ensemble
You’ll need a handkerchief with all of those flowers

Proteus ensemble
I’ll have to pack my
One thousand love letters owwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
Did you know i wrote
One thousand love letters owwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
I never mailed my
One thousand love letters owwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
I had no one i could mail them to

Julia
I’ll take them.

Proteus
When i get to milan
I’ll mail them all to you
Pictures of julia
Portraits of julia (ensemble hums under solo)
Albums of julia
Cameos of julia
Statues of julia

Ensemble
Why not pack the real thing’
What does a lover pack

Proteus
I packed my heart away
Along with the flowers

Ensemble
What does a lover pack

Proteus
I packed my heart away
Along with the bon-bons

Ensemble
What does a lover pack

Proteus
I packed my heart with the statues
Safe and sound
When i get back to verona

All
I will see you around

(ensemble exits. Proteus pulls
Out a huge string of pearls from
His shoulder bag and puts them
Around julia’s neck. She takes
Proteus’ hand and leads him down
Left, lies on the floor, fixes
The pearls and offers herself to
Him. Proteus takes off his glasses
And looks to the heavens)

Proteus
Thanks you.

(they embrace on the floor as
Music begins and launce enters up
Right to get the luggage. Launce
Sees them, does a take, then
Crosses over to them)
