Terrace Duet [FLORENCE]
This is the one situation I wanted most to avoid
Nothing I say will convince him this isn't a trick.

[THE RUSSIAN]
A drink on a clear moonlit night -- I relax, she smiles
There's something peculiar going on.

[FLORENCE]
So with immaculate timing, I'm left to carry the can
Embarrassed, outnumbered, marooned --

[THE RUSSIAN]
Now she can't be working for them -- I mean us --
She seems so very straightforward -- but where is he?

[FLORENCE]
He has to come back -- he wanted this meeting, well didn't he?

[THE RUSSIAN]
Maybe he's scared -- just as scared as he was in the game.

[FLORENCE]
Oh, I just couldn't care less
He can go right ahead, go and wreck his career, I know I've done
my best

[THE RUSSIAN]
Well at least she's a good-looking spy.

[FLORENCE]
What if my Russian friend thinks that my plans
Are more of an intimate kind?
If I don't say something else soon
He'll go -- Nobody's on nobody's side!

[THE RUSSIAN]
Listen, I hate to break up the mood
Get to the point, begin the beguine
Haven't you noticed we're a protagonist short
In this idyllic, well-produced scene?

[FLORENCE]
All I can say is moments ago
He was right here ready and waiting

[THE RUSSIA]
Never mind him -- I haven't missed him so far.

[BOTH]
Maybe it won't do any harm
To struggle on without his charm
Funny how all at once I feel that he can go jump off the mountain
I won't care

[FLORENCE]
This is the one situation I wanted most to avoid

[THE RUSSIAN]
My dear opponent -- I really can't imagine why

[FLORENCE]
So I am not dangerous then? -- what a shame!

[THE RUSSIAN]
Oh, you're not dangerous -- who could think that of you?

[BOTH]
You -- you are so strange -- why can't you be what you ought to
be?
You should be scheming, intriguing, too clever by half --

[THE RUSSIAN]
I have to had it to you
For you've managed to make me forget why I ever agreed to this
farce.

[BOTH]
I don't know why I can't think of anything
I would rather do
Than be wasting my time
On mountains with you.
