Max Adrian, Barbara Cook, Irra Petina, & Robert Rounseville – Venice Gavotte

Letra “Max Adrian, Barbara Cook, Irra Petina, & Robert Rounseville – Venice Gavotte” Official Lyrics


OLD LADY

I’ve got troubles, as I’ve said
Mother’s dying, Father’s dead
All my uncles are in jail


CANDIDE

It’s a very moving tale


OLD LADY

Though our name, I say again, is
Quite the proudest name in Venice
Our afflictions are so many
And we haven’t got a penny


CANDIDE

Madam, I am desolate
At your family’s tragic state
Any help that I can give
Please do tell me where they live
I shall look them up tomorrow
And alleviate their sorrow
With a check made out to bearer
In the meantime, buona sera


OLD LADY

I’ve got troubles, as I’ve said
Mother is dying, Father’s dead
All my uncles are in jail


CANDIDE

It’s a very moving tale


OLD LADY

Although our name, I say again, is
Quite the proudest name in Venice
All my uncles are in jail
It is a very moving tale
A moving tale, a moving tale


CANDIDE

Ah, what a tale!
Ah, what a moving tale


PANGLOSS

Millions of lire and rubles and francs
Broke the bank, broke the bank
Broke the best of all possible banks
Pieces of gold to the ladies I throw
Easy came, easy go
Shining gold to the ladies I throw


See them on their knees before me
If they love me, can you blame them?
Little wonder they adore me
Watch them woo me as I name them

Lady Frilly, Lady Silly
Pretty Lady Willy-Nilly
Lady Lightly, Lady Brightly
Charming Lady Fly-by-Nightly
My Lady Fortune found me
What a joy to have around me
Lovely ladies, six or seven
This is my idea of Heaven

Fortune, keep the wheel a-spinning, spinning
They adore me while I’m winning!
Lady Frilly, Lady Silly
Pretty Lady Willy-Nilly
Lady Lightly, Lady Brightly
Charming Lady Fly-by-Nightly
Fools love only one or two
Ladies, I love all of you


OLD LADY & CUNEGONDE

I’ve/She’s got troubles, as I/she said
Mother is dying, Father’s dead
All my/her uncles are in jail
