The Man Is Mine MARIA
LET ME TELL YOU ALL A LITTLE OF HIM,
FOR I'VE OBSERVED AND INTERESTING QUIRK:
HE THINKS THAT ALL WHO LOOK AT HIM MUST LOVE HIM,
AND THIS IS WHERE MY METHOD GOES TO WORK.

I KNOW HIS TYPE.
THE MAN IS VAIN.
THE MAN'S A RIPE TOMATO
HANGING ON THE VINE.
A LITTLE LUCK,
A LITTLE PLUCK,
WILL MAKE IT PLAIN IN TIME -
THE MAN IS MINE.



TOBY
What will you do?

MARIA
I can write very much like my lady. In fact, the untrained eye can hardly make distinction between our hands.

TOBY
I smell a plot.

ANDREW
I have it in my nose, too!

MARIA
I WILL SET SOME PRETTY WORDS BEFORE HIM,
AND HE WILL SEIZE UPON 'EM LIKE A CLUE.
ASSUMING AS HE DOES THAT ALL ADORE HIM,
HIS ONLY THOUGHT WILL BE TO FIND OUT WHO.

AND JUST LIKE THAT
THE MAN'S A MEAL.
THE MAN'S A FAT DELICIOUS
MACK'REL ON THE LINE.
A LITTLE BAIT,
A LITTLE BITE,
AND THEN I REEL HIM IN.
THE MAN IS MINE.

TOBY
He will think, from a letter you write, that my niece is in love with him!

MARIA
My purpose is indeed a horse of that color.

ANDREW
And your horse will make him an ass!

MARIA
Ass, I doubt not.
(sings)
HE'LL BE A FOOL BY BEING WHAT HE WANTS TO BE.
HE IS A FOOL - I ONLY NEED TO SET HIM FREE
TO BE A FOOL FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE.
HE'LL BE A FOOL FOR ME.

THE MAN'S A GOOSE,
AND SHE'S A SWAN.

FESTE
NO, SHE'S THE PEARL
YOU HAVE TO HURL BEFORE THE SWINE.

MARIA
A LITTLE HOT BENEATH THE POT
AND THEN THE GOOSE IS COOKED.

TOBY
THE PIG IS POKED.

FESTE
THE FISH IS HOOKED.

ANDREW
THE CHICKEN'S CHOKED.

TOBY
THE TOMATO'S PLUCKED.

FESTE
THE PEARL IS HURLED.

ANDREW
THE OYSTER'S SHUCKED.

MARIA
AND ALL THE WORLD IS FINE.
THE MAN IS MINE.
