Silly Little Syllogisms

 
Feste, Olivia Lyrics
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Silly Little Syllogisms FESTE
HERE WE SEE A SISTER'S GRIEF
FOR THE BROTHER SHE LOVED SO WELL.
BROUGHT ABOUT BY HER BELIEF
THAT HER BROTHER HAS GONE TO HELL.
BUT IF SUCH WERE THE CASE, THEN IT MUST IMPLY
THAT TO MOURN WOULD BE HOLY TREASON.
FOR THE LADY SHOULD TRUST THAT THE LORD ON HIGH
HAD HIM DAMNED FOR A DAMN GOOD REASON.
SILLY LITTLE SYLLOGISMS OF THIS SCHOOL
GENERALLY GENERATE A USEFUL RULE
TO SEPARATE THE SOBERHEADED FROM THE FOOL -

OLIVIA
FOOL!
YOUR REASONING IS FLAWED, I FEAR.
YOU SEEM TO HAVE FORGOTTEN THAT
THAT DEAR BROTHER OF MINE
WAS BLESSED WITH A SPIRIT SO FINE.
IT'S HARD TO IMAGINE A SOUL MORE DIVINE
THAN THAT DEAR BROTHER OF MINE.

FESTE
Forgive me, my Lady. I see now I began from false premises. Please, let me try again.
(sings)
WITNESS HERE A SISTER WEEP
FOR A BROTHER GONE HOME TO GOD.
THUS IT'S CLEAR SHE WISHED TO KEEP
HIM BESIDE HER ON EARTHLY SOD.
BUT IF THIS SHOULD BE SO, THEN WHAT SHOULD DRIVE
ANY SISTER TO BE SO SPITEFUL
AS TO WISH HIM BELOW AND THUS DEPRIVE
HIM OF COMPANY SO DELIGHTFUL?

SILLY LITTLE SYLLOGISMS OF THIS ILK
FOLLOW ON A FILAMENT AS FINE AS SILK
TO A PREDICATE AS PRECIOUS AS A MOTHER'S MILK.

FOR IF 'A' IS ALIVE,
AND 'B' IS DEAD,
AND 'C' IS A FOOL,
OR SO IT'S SAID,
THAN 'A' SHOULD BE GAY
AND NOT LIKE 'B,'
FOR INDEED TO BE DEAD,
ANY 'C' CAN SEE
IS A B-A-D IDEA TO BE.

SILLY LITTLE SYLLOGISMS OF THIS SORT
BATTLE AT THE BATTLEMENTS OF REASON'S FORT,
INHIBITING INHABITANTS OF ALL RESORT
TO EXUBERANT EXHIBIT OF A SMART RETORT.
