Mountain Duet Lyrics

Mountain Duet by Various  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Mountain Duet Benny Andersson, Tim Rice, and Bjorn Ulvaeus
FLORENCE:
This is the one situation I wanted most to avoid
Nothing I say will convince him this isn't a trick.
THE RUSSIAN:
A drink on a clear moonlit night -- I relax, she
smiles
There's something peculiar going on.
FLORENCE:
So with immaculate timing, I'm left to carry the
can
Embarrassed, outnumbered, marooned --
THE RUSSIAN:
Now she can't be working for them -- I mean
us --
She seems so very straightforward -- but where
is he?
FLORENCE:
He has to come back -- he wanted this meeting,
well didn't he?
THE RUSSIAN:
Maybe he's scared -- just as scared as he was
in the game.
FLORENCE:
Oh, I just couldn't care less
He can go right ahead, go and wreck his career,
I know I've done my best
THE RUSSIAN:
Well at least she's a good-looking spy.
FLORENCE:
What if my Russian friend thinks that my plans
Are more of an intimate kind?
If I don't say something else soon
He'll go -- Nobody's on nobody's side!
THE RUSSIAN:
Listen, I hate to break up the mood
Get to the point, begin the beguine
Haven't you noticed we're a protagonist short
In this idyllic, well-produced scene?
FLORENCE:
All I can say is moments ago
He was right here ready and waiting
THE RUSSIAN:
Never mind him -- I haven't missed him so far.
BOTH:
Maybe it won't do any harm
To struggle on without his charm
Funny how all at once I feel that he can go
jump off the mountain
I won't care
FLORENCE:
This is the one situation I wanted most to avoid
THE RUSSIAN:
My dear opponent -- I really can't imagine why
FLORENCE:
So I am not dangerous then? -- what a shame!
THE RUSSIAN:
Oh, you're not dangerous -- who could think
that of you?
BOTH:
You -- you are so strange -- why can't you be
what you ought to be?
You should be scheming, intriguing, too clever
by half --
THE RUSSIAN:
I have to had it to you
For you've managed to make me forget why I
ever agreed to this farce.
BOTH:
I don't know why I can't think of anything
I would rather do
Than be wasting my time
On mountains with you.
