On the Twentieth Century the musical - Sextet Lyrics

OLIVER & OWEN
Hey Lily, hey Lily,
YouТre home again at last.
Hi Lily, Hi Lily,

OSCAR
Boys, not too fast!
This is Mrs Letitia Primrose
Letitia Restoria Primrose
Mrs Primrose, meet Lily Garland.

MRS PRIMROSE
How do you do?
YouТre the famous motion picture actress
Mister Jaffee said I'd meet today.
I believe in Oscar Jaffee!
My purse strings are open,
I'll sponsor him all the way

OLIVER & OWEN
Sign, Lily, sign, Lily,
Sign on the dotted line.
Sign, Lily. Come back to us, Lily, Sign.
It's not a contract,
It's more like a Valentine.
Sign it, Lily, sign, Lily, sign!

MRS. PRIMROSE
What a beautiful moment,
What a mystical moment,
This is more than a contract,
It's more like taking the vows.

BRUCE (entering)
What the hell are you doing?
What the hell's going on?
I go out for a shave

LILY
Shhh, I'm reading

BRUCE
A lousy little shave!

OSCAR, OWEN, OLIVER, MRS. PRIMROSE
Shhh sheТs reading!

BRUCE
WhatТs that thing?

OWEN, OLIVER, MRS. PRIMROSE
It's a contract.

OSCAR, OWEN, OLIVER
Shhh!

BRUCE
A contract?

OSCAR
It's a contract.
Listen, Lily, who remembers who directed Bernhardt, Lily?
Who remembers who directed Duse, Lily?
No one will remember I directed you,
They'll only think of Lily Garland
You are who they'll write about, Miss Lily Garland,
You are what they'll talk about, just Lily Garland
Sign it Lily, they'll remember you forever

OSCAR
Listen, Lily, who remembers who directed Bernhardt, Lily?
Who remembers who directed Duse, Lily?
No one will remember I directed you,
They'll only think of Lily Garland
You are who they'll write about, Miss Lily Garland,
You are what they'll talk about, just Lily Garland
Sign it Lily, they'll remember you forever

OLIVER & OWEN
Sign, Lily, sign, Lily, sign on the dotted line!
Sign, Lily, come back to us, Lily, sign!
It's not a contract,
It's more like a Valentine.
Sign it, sign it, sign, Lily, sign!

MRS PRIMROSE
What a beautiful moment,
What a mystical moment
This is more than a contract
It's more like taking the vows.

BRUCE
What the hell are you doing?
What the hell are you doing?
Don't sign it,
Don't sign it
Don't sign it!

OSCAR, OLIVER, OWEN, MRS. PRIMROSE

Sign it

BRUCE
Don't sign it!

LILY
No. It's more than that!
It's something else.
Something elseЕ
Hear my heart hammer
Feel my pulse quicken
He and I once again
Together.
Watch my hands tremble
Hear my voice thicken
Dare we fly once again
Together?
I got along without him
Felt sure and strong without him
I had to find a way to live my life alone
I called my life my own.
But how could I have known
That love from way back when
Would flood my heart again
That he'd walk in
And I'd hear strings begin.
To pull me back
To where IТd been
I mustn't go
And yet I know I'm going
Deep sweet old feelings

OSCAR
Come back to me, my Lily
You must come back my Lily.

LILY
Wild long lost longings
He and I here we are

OSCAR
Let's love and play together
For ever stay

LILY & OSCAR
Together

OSCAR
Your every sign cries СOscar'
Your every breath breathes СOscar'
I know you care, you

LILY
Every sign warns me
Every breath cries beware. But I don't

OSCAR & LILY
ЕCare!
Since we parted, empty days
Made up what I'd call my life.
Now he'll fill those empty days
From now on and all my life together
(S)he and I together
(S)he and I together

OSCAR
Hey Lily,

LILY
Stop! Be smart!
Say no, you can't go back
To long ago.
You can't go back.

OWEN, OLIVER & OSCAR
You must come back

LILY
