Devil Take the Hindmost (Quartet) Lyrics

A Romantic Musical (2012 Australian Version)
Love Never Dies the Musical - Devil Take the Hindmost (Quartet) Lyrics

GUSTAVE:
[under, throughout]
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh...

STAGEHANDS (spoken)
Ready on the rail? Ready on the rail!

RAOUL:
Will she sing?
Will she flee?
What is she
Thinking now?

Is it him?
Is it me?
Devil take the hindmost

STAGEHANDS (spoken)
Ready on the floor? Ready on the floor!

(RAOUL)/[PHANTOM]:
(Will she stay?)
[Obey your heart]
(Will she go?)
[And sing for me]
(Does she know)
[You want it so]
(Even now?)
[Stay and be mine]
(Please, Christine)
[Eternally]
(Stop the show)

BOTH:
Devil take the hindmost
Now it's time
So make your choice
Do it for our son

PHANTOM:
Use your head

RAOUL:
No time to wait

BOTH:
Hesitate
We're all undone

STAGEHANDS (spoken)
Ready in the pit? Ready in the pit!

MADAME GIRY/(RAOUL)/[PHANTOM]:
Perhaps she won't go on
(Will she stay?)
[Obey your heart]
Perhaps she'll lose her nerve
(Will she go?)
[And sing for me]
Perhaps her voice won't serve
(Does she know)
[And sing for me]
And she will fail him now
(Even now?)
[You, me, the child]
And then my child and I
(Please Christine)
[Eternally]
Will get what we deserve
(Stop the show)

ALL:
Devil take the hindmost

MADAME GIRY/(RAOUL)/[PHANTOM]:
Perhaps she won't go on
(Will she stay?)
[Obey your heart]
Perhaps she'll lose her nerve
(Will she go?)
[And sing for me]
Perhaps her voice won't serve
(Does she know)
[And sing for me]
And she will fail him now
(Even now?)
[You, me, the child]
And then my child and I
(Please Christine)
[Eternally]
Will get what we deserve
(Stop the show)

ALL:
Devil take the hindmost

Now it's time
No turning back
All is on the line

Here it is
The final dance
One last chance
To get what's mine

MADAME GIRY (spoken)
I hope Christine is worthy of you.
I hope her singing makes up for what your blindness has done to Meg and me.

MEG:
Devil take the hindmost

STAGEHAND (spoken)
And, curtain!
