Perfectly Marvellous Song Lyrics

[SALLY (spoken)]
I think people are perfectly marvellous, I really do, Cliff.
Don't you? I don't think people should have to explain
anything. For example, if I should paint my fingernails green
and it just so happens I do paint them green, well, if anyone
should ask me why, I say: " I think it's pretty!" ("I think
it's pretty," I reply.) So, if anyone should ask about you
and me, you have two alternatives: you can either say,
"Oh, yes, it's true. We're living in delicious sin." Or
you can simple tell the truth, and say:
I met this perfectly marvellous girl
In this perfectly wonderful place
As I lifted a glass
To the start of a marvellous year.
Before I knew she called on the phone,
Next moment I was no longer alone,
But sat reciting
Some perfectly beautiful verse,
In my charming Amearican style.
How I dazzled her senses
Was truly no less than a crime.
Now I've this perfectly marvelous girl
In my perfectly beautiful room
And we're living together
And having a marvellous time.
[CLIFF (spoken)]
Sally, I'm afraid this wouldn't work out. You're much
too distracting.
[SALLY (spoken)]
Distracting? No, inspiring!
She tell me perfectly marvellous tales
Of her thrillingly scandalous life
Which I'll probably use
As a chapter or two in my book.
And since my stay in Berlin was to force
What luck to fall on a fabulous source
Of stimulation.
And perfectly marvellous, too,
Is her perfect agreement to be
Just as still as a mouse
When I'm giving my novel a whirl.
Yes, I've a highly agreeable life
In my perfectly beautiful room
With my nearly invisible,
Perfectly marvellous, girl.
[CLIFF (spoken)]
Sally- I just can't afford... Do you have any money?
A few marks... Six!
Oh, God!
Oh, please, Cliff- just for a day or two? Please!
I... met... this...
Truly remarkable girl
In this really incredible town,
And she skillfully managed
To talk her way in to my room.
Oh, Cliff!
I have a terrible feeling I've said
A dumb thing.
Beside, I've only got one narrow bed.
We'll think of something.
And now this wild, unpredictable girl
And this perfectly beautiful man
Will be living together and having a marvelous time
