What a Dreadful Town! Lyrics
A Romantic Musical (2012 Australian Version)
Love Never Dies the Musical - What a Dreadful Town! Lyrics
What a dreadful town
What a vulgar place
What an awful mistake to have come here
To be on display
In that shameless way
For the crude common lower class scum here
How do they dare to treat us so?
Come play with
Come and see this toy I bought
What a slum at most
From our so-called host
Did he think sending freaks would be funny?
Could the fool have thought
That our pride was bought
By his filthy American money
What a farce! What an outright slap in the face!
An utter disgrace!
I've got a mind to pack and go!
Never you mind the debts we owe!
Who would have thought we'd sunk this low
Father dear, come play with me
Gustave enough, the answer's no!
Must you play now?
I think it's beautiful
What is it?
I don't know! It was just here on the piano
Well it hurts my head!
Please let's not fight dear
I'm sure Mr. Hammerstein never intended a slight dear
How dare you patronize me?
We should never have accepted
We need the money
That's why things haven't been right dear
Why doesn't it surprise me that I get the blame here?
Let's leave tonight dear
If it would serve to ease your troubled mind
Leave the hurt behind
Father dear, come over here
And look at what they gave to me
Wind it up and father see
Look it plays a melody
What is it?
It's from Hammerstein. He wants to meet me in the hotel bar, alone.
Well, he may lack courtesy,
But he does show a certain savoir-faire in choosing a business rendezvous.
Father never plays with me
Doesn't he love me?
