Terrace Duet Song Lyrics

This is the one situation
I wanted most to avoid
Nothing I say will convince him this isn't a trick.

A drink on a clear moonlit night --
I relax, she smiles
There's something peculiar going on.

So, through no fault of my own,
I'm in it way over my head.
Embarrassed, outnumbered, marooned.

Now she can't be working for them --
I mean us --
She seems to know what she's doing --
But where is he?

He has to show up.
It can't come to nothing.
Perhaps it can!

Maybe he's scared --
But he didn't seem scared in the game.

Oh, I just couldn't care less
He can go right ahead
Go and wreck his career
I know I've done my best.

Well at least she's a good-looking spy.

What if my Russian friend thinks
That my plans have nothing to do with the chess?
If I don't say something and soon
He'll go -- maybe I'm on nobody's side!

Listen, I hate to break up the mood
How do you say, begin the beguine
Haven't you noticed
We're still one character short
In this idyllic, well-produced scene?

How could I not? Miss Vassy regrets
Anything goes, with your opponent.

Never mind him --
I haven't missed him so far.
Maybe it won't do any harm
To struggle on without his charm
Funny how all at once I feel
Nothing about that meeting matters anymore.

This is the one situation
I wanted most to avoid.

My dear opponent --
I really can't imagine why.

You'll think I'm the dangerous kind --
Well I am!

You, you're not dangerous --
Who could think that of you?

You -- you are so strange --
Why can't you be what you ought to be?

You should be scheming, intriguing, too clever by half.

I have to had it to you --
For you've managed to make me
Forget why I ever agreed to this farce.

I don't know why I can't think of anything
I would rather do
Than be wasting my time with someone like you.
