Prima Donna Lyrics

Prima Donna by Phantom Of The Opera  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music



Prima Donna André and Firmin-
Prima donna,
First lady of the stage!
Your devotees
Are on their knees
To implore you!

André-
Can you bow out
When they're shouting
Your name?

Firmin-
Think of how they all adore you.

André and Firmin-
Prima donna,
Enchant us once again

André-
Think of your muse...

Firmin-
And of the queues
Round the theatre!

André and Firmin-
Can you deny us the triumph in store?

Andre and Firmin-
Sing, prima donna,
Once more!
|
|Raoul-
|Christine spoke of an angel...
|
|Carlotta-
|Prima donna,
Your song shall live again!

|André and Firmin-
|Think of your public!
|
|Carlotta-
|You took a snub,

|but there's a public
|who needs you!
|
|Giry-
|She has heard the voice
|of the angel of music...
|
|André and Firmin-
|Those who hear your voice
|liken you to an angel!

|Carlotta-
|Think of their cry
|of undying
|support!
|
|Raoul-
|Is this her angel of music...?
|
|André-
|We get our opera...

|Firmin-
|She gets her limelight!
|
|Carlotta-
|Follow where the limelight
|leads you!
|
|Meg-
|Is this ghost
|an angel or a madman...?
|
|Raoul-
|Angel or madmadman...?
|
|André and Firmin-
|Leading ladies are a trial!
|
|Carlotta-
|Prima donna,
|your song shall never die!
|
|Meg-
|Voice of hell, or of heaven...?
|
|Giry
|Heaven help you,|those who doubt...
|
|Carlotta
|You'll sing again,
|and to unending
|ovation!
|
|Raoul

|Orders! Warnings!
|Lunatic demands!
|
|Giry
|This miscasting
|Will invite damnation...
|
|André and Firmin
|Tears... oaths...
|lunatic demands
|are regular occurences!
|
|Meg
|Bliss or damnation?

|Which has claimed her...?
|Carlotta-
|Think how you'll shine
|in that final
|encore!
|Sing, prima donna,
|once more!
|
|Giry-
|Oh fools,
|to have flouted his warnings!
|
|Raoul-
|Surely, for her sake...
|
|Meg-
|Surely he'll strike back...
|
|André and Firmin-
|Surely there'll be further scenes -

|worse than this!
|
|Giry-
|Think, before
|these demands are rejected!
|
|Raoul-
|...I must see these demands are rejected!
|
|Meg-
|...if his threats

|and demands are rejected!
|
|André and Firmin-
|Who'd believe a diva
|happy to relieve a
|chorus girl, who's gone
|and slept with the patron?
|Raoul and the soubrette,
|entwined in love's duet!
|Although he may demur,
|he must have been with her!
|
|Meg and Raoul
|Christine must be protected!
|
|Carlotta-
|O, fortunata!
|Non ancor

|abbandonata!
|
|André and Firmin-
|You'd never get away
|with all this in a play,
|but if it's loudly sung
|and in a foreign tongue,
|it's just the sort of story
|audiences adore, in fact a perfect
|opera!
|
|Raoul-
|His game is over!
|
|Giry-
|This is a game
|you cannot hope to win!
|
|Raoul-
|And in Box Five
|a new game will begin...
|
|Giry-
|For, if his curse
|is on this opera...
|
|Meg-
|But if his curse

|is on this opera...
|
|André and Firmin-
|Prima donna,
|the world is at your feet!
|A nation waits,
|and how it hates,
|to be cheated!
|
|Carlotta-
|The stress that falls upon a
|famous prima donna!
|Terrible deseases,
|coughs and colds and sneezes!
|
|Still, the dryest throat
|will reach the highest note,
|in search of perfect
|opera!
|
|Meg and Giry-
|...then I fear the outcome...
|
|Raoul-
|Christine plays the Pageboy,
|Carlotta plays the Countess...
|
|Giry-
|...should you dare to...
|
|Meg-
|...when you once again...

All-
Light up the stage
With that age-old rapport!
Sing, prima donna,
Once more!

Phantom(spoken)-
So, it is war between us! If these demands are not met, a disaster

Beyond your imagination....will occur!

All-
Once more!
