The Document

 

The Document Song Lyrics


Laura:
You wanted me?
Glyde:
I have a document for you to sign
Laura:
A document?
Glyde:
Sit here, use my pen.
Laura:
A document, what kind of document?
Glyde:
Just sign it here, and here, and we'll be done
Laura:
Now?
Glyde:
It's a formality
Sign your name Lady Glyde
Here, on the line.
Laura:
What are you asking me to sign?
(Fosco enters, all civility)
Fosco:
Percival, you said you needed me
I am at your service
Ah, Buongiorno, ladies
I trust you slept well?
Glyde:
I need a witness to Laura's signature
Laura:
Again, what is this document?
Glyde:
Sign your name Lady Glyde
Marian:
Sir! She has a right to know
Glyde:
It pertains, Miss Halcombe,
To a man and his wife
Laura:
Then let me read it first
That isn't asking much
Glyde:
Sign, I have a carriage waiting!
Marian (to Count Fosco):
Do you know what's in these papers?
Fosco:
I'm as ignorant as you and Lady Glyde
Glyde:
Sign!
Laura:
But I cannot sign
What I haven't read
Glyde:
It is too involved
For your pretty head
As a sign of trust
Please pick up the pen
Laura:
I will read it first
I will trust you then
Marian:
Let our lawyer bless
What you want from her
And she'll acquiesce
With her signature
Glyde:
You've a pointed tone
That I will not bear
Marian:
That's a point of view
I completely share
Glyde:
Sign your name Lady Glyde
Infernal women,
You know nothing about business!
Fosco:
Calmly my dear friend
Lady Glyde's upset
So is her sister
Can't the papers wait another day?
Glyde:
This is a timely matter
And it will not wait
Laura:
I will gladly sign when I know what it is.
Fosco:
Forget about the signature.
I'm urging you, please,
As a man of honor. Be patient.
Marian:
Send the carriage away
Fosco:
In all good conscience
I could not be a witness now.
Glyde:
For God's sake, woman, sign!
I will not stand for it. I will not!
(Sir Percival goes to strike his wife. He is prevented by Fosco and Marian)
Marian:
Stop it! Stop it!
Glyde:
She is still my wife!
She'll do as I say!
Fosco:
Keep your temper, sir!
Glyde:
Stay out of my way!
(To Laura)
You must be confined
Till you see the light
Marian:
This is not a jail!
Fosco:
Sir, this is not right!
Glyde:
She should gladly do
Anything I say
She's a willful child
Who must have her way
Fosco (firmly):
Glyde! You must hold your tongue!
You must not react
You must leave at once
-your good name intact
(Sir Percival leaves)
Fosco (reaching out to Laura):
You'll be fine Lady Glyde
Laura:
Don't touch me
Fosco:
You are safe my dear
You'll be all right
His bark is far worse
Than his spite
His temper flares
Don't be alarmed
He will calm down
You will not be harmed
Marian:
Without your aid
Where would we be?
Fosco:
How could I not?
Laura:
Don't come near me!
Marian:
He's our friend!
Look what he's done.
Laura:
I don't trust him-
Or anyone.
Fosco:
You'll be fine Lady Glyde
(Marian takes a hand- a thank you in her eyes. Fosco leaves.)
