Dear Old Friend Lyrics

A Romantic Musical (2012 Australian Version)
Love Never Dies the Musical - Dear Old Friend Lyrics

CHRISTINE
Slow down Gustave! There are people working here, be careful!

GUSTAVE
But I want to find Mr.Y! And go see the island!

CHRISTINE
I'm sure he'll send for you when he's ready.

RAOUL
Who is this Mr. Y? What does he do-apart from spend ludicrous amounts of money
on light entertainment?

GUSTAVE
Father! Look over there!

RAOUL
Gustave slow down!

MEG
Heaven help me could it be?
No it couldn't possibly

CHRISTINE
Sorry do I...

MEG
Yes I think you do.

CHRISTINE
Have we...

MEG
Go on take a guess

CHRISTINE
Wait it can't be is it...

MEG
Yes!

CHRISTINE
Oh my god I can't believe it's you!

MEG
Look at you, Christine. Regal as a queen and beautiful

CHRISTINE
Meg, and you as well I could hardly tell it's you

BOTH
My dear old friend
Can't believe you're here, old friend

CHRISTINE
After all this time

MEG
Christine you came
You look sublime

CHRISTINE
You look the same

BOTH
My sweet old friend.
Never thought we'd meet, old friend

CHRISTINE
What of your career?

MEG
Everything's great

BOTH
And isn't fate a splendid thing?

CHRISTINE
It brought me here

MEG
To see the sights?

CHRISTINE
And sing

GIRY
You!

RAOUL
My god, it's you!

GIRY
It can't be true

RAOUL
Is this a dream?
It's been ten years!

GIRY
What brings you here?

RAOUL
What do you think?
Christine
She's here to sing

GIRY
I read the news
For Hammerstein?

RAOUL
No plans have changed
He's been outbid

GIRY
Outbid by whom?

RAOUL
The contract's here
It's rather strange

MEG
Sorry, did I hear you right?
Here to sing

CHRISTINE
Tomorrow night

MEG
That seems odd there must be some mistake
That's the leading lady slot
I've been booked

CHRISTINE
Oh surely not...

MEG
This was meant to be my lucky break

CHRISTINE
Look I hardly sing
Just one little thing
An aria

MEG
Christine it's a thrill
Just to share the bill with you

MEG/GIRY
My dear old friend
It's becoming clear old friend
Someone's overlooked
His leading act

RAOUL
Well double-booked
To be exact
Now my old friend
Can you clarify old friend
This Mr. Y
With whom we signed
Who hides behind the pseudonym

GIRY
You haven't guessed?

RAOUL
I've no idea

GIRY
It's him

RAOUL
It's him?

GIRY
That's what I said

RAOUL
You work for him?

GIRY
Now you do too

RAOUL
My poor wife, we thought him dead
She'll be appalled

GIRY
Unless she knew

CHRISTINE
Darling, please, are you alright?

RAOUL
Tell me now, this music, who was its creator?

CHRISTINE
Darling, please don't squeeze so tight

RAOUL
Something's going on here, I'll deal with you later

MEG
What's this about?

GIRY
I wish I knew

GIRY/RAOUL
The truth will out before we're through

ALL
My dear old friends
Can't believe your here old friends

GIRY
My dear Christine

MEG
My dear Vicomte

CHRISTINE
What does this mean?

RAOUL
What does he want?

ALL
My grand old friend
I don't understand old friend

MEG/GIRY
Maybe it's a joke

CHRISTINE/RAOUL
Some silly game

ALL
And what his aim is in the end
I can't pretend to comprehend old friend

MEG
It isn't fair

GIRY
We need to think

CHRISTINE
I need some air

RAOUL
I need a drink

ALL
My bold old friend(?)
Isn't this abhorred old friend

CHRISTINE
I'm still amazed

MEG
I'm still confused

GIRY
I'm feeling dazed

RAOUL
I'm feeling used

ALL
And yet old friend
Let's not get upset old friend

GIRY
We can sort this out

RAOUL
I'm sure we will

MEG
Without a doubt

ALL
Because we're still
Such grand old friends
Such devoted and old friends
Back again (at last)
When everyone (is doing great)
Won't this be fun? (so much fun)
With two old friends
Just able with two old friends (?)

GIRY
Let us raise a glass

CHRISTINE
To times gone by

RAOUL
To Mr. Y

MEG
To happy ends

ALL
To such sincere
And very dear old friends

Old friends!

RAOUL
No offense, but I need something stronger.
Madame I shall see you tomorrow night at the concert,
where I am sure you will both surpass yourselves. Good day.

CHRISTINE
Raoul, please! I can explain!
I'm sorry...look I wonder would you mind....Gustave!

MEG
What is it?

CHRISTINE
My son! He was with...Gustave! Gustave!

MEG
Christine wait!
