Olivia, Viola Lyrics
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Olivia VIOLA
IF I WERE LOVED THE WAY MY MASTER LOVES YOU,
I'D ASK NO OTHER JOY IN LIFE.
INSTEAD OF DRIVING HIM AWAY AS YOU DO,
I'D GLADLY GO TO BE HIS WIFE.

BUT IF I CARED FOR YOU AS DEEPLY HAS HE,
AND FOUND MY OVERTURES DECLINED,
I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT I COULD FIND
THE MEANS TO CHANGE YOUR MIND.

OLIVIA
What would you do?

VIOLA
I'D BUILD MYSELF A CABIN THERE AT YOUR GATE, OLIVIA.
AND LIKE A LONELY SENTINEL I WOULD WAIT, OLIVIA.
AND FROM YOUR ROOM YOU'D HEAR ME CRYING "OLIVIA,
OLIVIA, BE MY LOVE."

A THOUSAND SONGS OF WOEFUL LOVE I WOULD WRITE, OLIVIA.
AND SING THEM LOUD THE DARKEST HOUR OF THE NIGHT, OLIVIA.
AND TEACH THE BABBLING BROOK TO CRY OUT "OLIVIA,
OLIVIA, BE MY LOVE."

THE HILLS AND HOLLOWS ALL AROUND
WOULD ECHO WITH "OLIVIA! OLIVIA!"
AND ALL THE EARTH WOULD SOON RESOUND
WITH "OLIVIA! OLIVIA!"

FINALLY YOU'D COME DOWN
FROM YOUR HIDEAWAY HIGH ABOVE,
AND YOU'D PITY ME, OLIVIA,
YOU WOULD BE MY LOVE.

OLIVIA
You would do much.

VIOLA
No more than any true lover ought.

OLIVIA
Yet more than the Duke has done.

VIOLA
My Lady, I can bear witness to his passion - the sighs, the groans, the tears. Such love should be requited -

OLIVIA
And yet I cannot love him. Let him send no more - only, perhaps you might come again to tell me how he takes it. Here, for
your pains...

VIOLA
Keep your money. It is my master, not myself, who lacks recompense. Farewell, cruel Olivia.

OLIVIA
THE HILLS AND HOLLOWS ALL AROUND
WOULD ECHO WITH "OLIVIA! OLIVIA!"
AND ALL THE EARTH WOULD SOON RESOUND
WITH "OLIVIA! OLIVIA!"

AND FINALLY I'D COME DOWN
FROM MY HIDEAWAY HIGH ABOVE...
(speaks)
Malvolio! Malvolio!
