Devil Take the Hindmost Lyrics

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

RAOUL
No, no it can't be!

PHANTOM
Not afraid of me, you say?

RAOUL
Stay back! Or I'll kill you I promise you!

PHANTOM
Insolent boy! You think you own more of her soul than I do?

RAOUL
She is my wife! Your music may speak to her, but her heart will always follow me!

PHANTOM
You think so? You really think so? Follow you with all your...charms?

Look at you, deep in debt
Stinking drunk, pitiful
Shall we two make a bet?
Devil take the hindmost

RAOUL
Look at you, foul as sin
Hideous, horrible
Call the stakes, deal me in
Devil take the hindmost

PHANTOM
Our Christine shall choose tonight

RAOUL
Let her choose

PHANTOM
Is she yours or mine?

RAOUL
Draw the line

PHANTOM
If she sings, you lose tonight

RAOUL
I won't lose

PHANTOM
You leave from here

RAOUL
Fine!

PHANTOM
Disappear

RAOUL
Fine! And if she won't, if I win?

PHANTOM
All your debts wiped away

RAOUL
Very well, let's begin

BOTH
Devil take the hindmost

PHANTOM
Our old game, it's been changed
Every throw, riskier.   
All the rules, rearranged                                                             

RAOUL
You think you have the odds
You think you're in control
You think you've fixed the dice
Well I will gladly roll
I'll bet against the house,
I 'll even double down

PHANTOM
Fate has redesigned us

RAOUL                                                        PHANTOM
Fortune's on my side                                    Cut the deck, let us play
I won her long ago                                       You and I, once again
I won her from you then                               In the end
I'll wager even now I'll win her back again
And when the game is done

PHANTOM
Either way

BOTH
Devil take the hindmost!

Now Christine shall choose at last
Is she yours or mine

RAOUL
We've a son, our bond secure

PHANTOM
Are you sure

RAOUL
What

PHANTOM
Are you so sure

RAOUL
What do you mean?

PHANTOM
Such a child, strange to see
Talented, musical

RAOUL
Huh?

PHANTOM
Is he more you or me?
Which one do you find most?

RAOUL
You lie!

PHANTOM                                         RAOUL
Yet you doubt, doubt your wife            No woman could, or ever would
Doubt your son, everything                 Love such a man, you're insane
Now we play, for your life                   So now I play for my life

BOTH
Devil take the hindmost

RAOUL                                           PHANTOM
I call your bluff                                Deal the cards
The game is on                               Let them fall
And we will see                               Choose your hand, try your best
Who wins out                                  He who wins
Once and for all

BOTH
Wins it all

Devil take the hindmost!

PHANTOM
She walks, you leave together.
Pockets full, debts paid!
She sings...
You leave alone.

Devil take the hindmost

RAOUL
What have I done? I could lose her forever! My Christine!
