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

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

[FLORENCE]
So, through no fault of my own,
I'm in it way over my head.
Embarrassed, outnumbered, marooned.

[ANATOLY]
Now she can't be working for them --
I mean us --
She seems to know what she's doing --
But where is he?

[FLORENCE]
He has to show up.
It can't come to nothing.
Perhaps it can!

[ANATOLY]
Maybe he's scared --
But he didn't seem scared 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.

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

[FLORENCE]
What if my Russian friend thinks
That my plans have nothing to do with the chess?
If I don't say something and soon
He'll go -- maybe I'm on nobody's side!

[ANATOLY]
Listen, I hate to break up the mood
How do you say, begin the beguine
Haven't you noticed
We're still one character short
In this idyllic, well-produced scene?

[FLORENCE]
How could I not? Miss Vassy regrets
Anything goes, with your opponent.

[ANATOLY]
Never mind him --
I haven't missed him so far.
Maybe it won't do any harm
To struggle on without his charm
Funny how all at once I feel
Nothing about that meeting matters anymore.

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

[ANATOLY]
My dear opponent --
I really can't imagine why.

[FLORENCE]
You'll think I'm the dangerous kind --
Well I am!

[ANATOLY]
You, you're not dangerous --
Who could think that of you?

[FLORENCE]
You -- you are so strange --
Why can't you be what you ought to be?

[BOTH]
You should be scheming, intriguing, too clever by half.

[ANATOLY]
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 with someone like you.
