Musicals – Chess – Florence Quits lyrics


Such a squalid little ending
Watching you descending
Just as far as you can go. What a nasty ambition. [Sung]
So you got
What you want. Once they start
Getting old,
And getting worried,
They let fly,
Take it out
On the one
Who supports them–
That’s you
I’m talking about. Frederick: [Spoken]
Five games to one. Florence:
Who’d ever guess it? It’s all over. I should have guessed, woman,
That if pressed, woman,
You’re on nobody’s side
But your own. I’m learning
Things I didn’t want to know. And you’re behaving
Like a mere woman,
It’s so clear, woman,
It’s your sex! Be someone else’s
Parasite! Frederick & Florence:
Who’d ever think it? Florence:
You’ll be lost without me
To abuse like you’re used to. Frederick:
Go away! This would be the situation. Frederick:
One more observation

Frederick & Florence:
How’d we ever get this far
Before you showed me
What you really are? Set me up,
Pull me down,
Then exploit my condition. Just get out!
