ANASTASIA the Musical - The Countess and the Common Man Lyrics


VLAD
(spoken) Ever since that first day I saw you at court, I knew I was beneath you.

LILY
(spoken) You were right, darling. You were.

VLAD
I noticed you across a room-
The most exquisite rose.
The tiniest tiara and
That haughty little nose.
I flirted with you shamelessly.

LILY
Or so the scandal goes...
The Countess

VLAD
And the common man.
We tiptoes off to Peterhof
To have a royal fling.

LILY
My husband was oblivious;
Count's never know a thing!

VLAD
And all of it was perfect...

LILY
'Til you stole my diamond ring!

BOTH
The countess
And the common man.

VLAD
Cologne in the bedclothes,
The pastry and wine.

LILY
And under the table
Your foot touching mine.

BOTH
And how my heart beat
When you sent me "our sign."

LILY
I loved you...

VLAD
You loved me
And oh, it was simply

BOTH
Divine.

VLAD
Who would have known.
My little rose,
We're back where we began.

LILY
And I suppose
That you'll propose
Another sneaky plan!
Which I'll resist...

VLAD
Until you're kissed...

BOTH
For nothing's better than...

LILY
The countess

VLAD
And the common man

BOTH
The countess
And the common man.
