Off-Broadway Musical
Marry Me a Little - Pour Le Sport Lyrics

(from The Last Resorts, unproduced the Musical)
(written by Stephen Sondheim - Pour Le Sport lyrics)

WOMAN:
(Yawns.)
Aah aah aah

MAN:
(Yawns.)
Ah aah aah

BOTH:
(Yawning.)
Aah aah aah aah aah aah aah

We're having such fun–
We're going golfing
We're having such fun
And feeling fit!
Isn't it mad?
We never had so much fun–
Let's quit!

WOMAN:
I feel like crying–
I got a birdie!
I wasn't trying
So who could know?
Never occurred to me the bird was flying
So low!

BOTH:
Ah, to be out in the air again
Far from town!
Feeling as strong as a bear again–

MAN:
Let's lie down

BOTH:
Straightening out all the kinks again
Slightly sore–
Ah, to be out on the links again
Pour le sport!

WOMAN:
It's so amusing–

MAN:
Let's have a highball–

WOMAN:
It's so amusing–

MAN:
It's like a game!
Hitting a small
Expensive ball

WOMAN:
And losing
The same

I feel like fainting–

MAN:
Let's look for my ball–

WOMAN:
I feel like fainting–

MAN:
Now let me see...

WOMAN:
Oh!
This must be mine– it has a tiny painting
Of me

BOTH:
Back in the world of sports again
Très, très gai

MAN:
Back in Bermuda shorts again

WOMAN: (spoken)
Mainbocher!

BOTH:
Nudging the ball with your toe again–
Who keeps score?
Ah, to be out with the pro again–
Pour le sport!

MAN:
I want the niblick!
Whatever that is...

WOMAN:
It's just a niblick
But it's divine!

MAN:
Even if it's a silly simple niblick
It's mine!

WOMAN:
I need the three-wood–

MAN:
It's silver-plated

WOMAN:
I need the three-wood
But which is which?

MAN: (spoken)
Harriet told me hers was gold

WOMAN:
She would–
The bitch

BOTH:
Ah, to be out on the green again
In the pink
Feeling deliciously lean again

MAN:
Where my drink?

WOMAN:
Fresh as a girl of eighteen again

BOTH:
And what's more
We could
Keep at it yet for hours getting thinner
Nevertheless we've got to dress for dinner
Look at the time! Let's say that I'm the winner
Fore!
What'll we do tomorrow?
Pour le sport?
