Venice Gavotte lyrics

by

Leonard Bernstein


[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
[PANGLOSS]
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

[OLD LADY, CUNEGONDE & CANDIDE]
It's a very moving tale

[PANGLOSS]
Lovely ladies, six or seven
This is my idea of Heaven

[OLD LADY & CUNEGONDE]
Although our name, I say again, is
Quite the proudest name in Venice
All my/her uncles are in jail

[PANGLOSS]
Fortune, keep the wheel a-spinning, spinning
They adore me while I'm winning!
Lady Frilly, Lady Silly
Pretty Lady Willy-Nilly

[OLD LADY, CUNEGONDE & CANDIDE]
It is a very moving tale

[PANGLOSS]
Lady Lightly, Lady Brightly
Charming Lady Fly-by-Nightly

[CANDIDE]
Ah, what a tale!
Ah, what a moving tale!

[OLD LADY & CUNEGONDE]
A moving tale, a moving tale

[PANGLOSS]
Fools love only one or two
Ladies, I love all of you

[OLD LADY, CUNEGONDE & CANDIDE]
A moving tale, a moving tale, a tale!

[PANGLOSS]
Love you, love you, love you!
