RAOUL: (sung)
A collector's piece indeed
Every detail exactly as she said
She often spoke of you, my friend
Your velvet lining and your figurine of lead
Will you still play, when all the rest of us are dead?
AUCTIONEER: (spoken)
Lot 666, then: a chandelier in pieces.
Some of you may recall the strange affair of the Phantom of the Opera
A mystery never fully explained.
We are told, ladies and gentlemen that this is the very chandelier
That figures in the famous disaster.
Our workshops have restored it
And fitted parts of it with wiring for the new electric light
So that we may get a hint of what it may look like when reassembled
Perhaps we may even frighten away the ghost of so many years ago
With a little illumination. Gentlemen!
