[Florence]

Well, we can't complain that

You've been ignored by the press

[Freddie]

What'd they say? What'd they say?

[Florence]

They're not too polite

[Freddie]

They say I'm a sh**?

[Florence, spoken]

Well, yes. They pulled you to pieces--

[Florence, sung]

In five different languages

The Times: "You thrive on unpleasantness."

[Florence, spoken]

Le Monde: “Frederick Trumper, la honte des écheques.”

[Freddie]

I don't believe that they can't see my game

I'm like that tennis player

What's-his-name?

They love to hate me

And for us that's dollars!

[Florence, spoken]

Die Welt: "Trumper: Der wilde Junge des Schachs."

[Freddie]

Hey, look, here's a piece that

Some idiot's written on you

[Freddie, spoken]

"Florence Va**y, petite Hungarian-born personal a**istant …”

[Freddie, sung]

“ … his gentle companion--"

If they only knew!

[Florence, spoken]

What do you mean? I've always been gentle with you, Freddie

[Both]

“She stands by her champion …”

[Freddie, spoken]

Oh, I like this

[Both]

“… whose demands

Are so infantile.”

[Freddie, spoken]

I don't like this

[Florence]

If you don't like it, then it's up to you

They like the Russian, they could like you too

[Freddie]

Commie newspapers

Of course the bastards all support the Russian

[Florence]

But Sergievsky seems a sweet opponent

So why do you abuse him all the time?

[Florence, spoken]
