Never Lyrics - On the Twentieth Century

Broadway revival (2015)
On the Twentieth Century the musical - Never Lyrics

LILY
Let me see.
Let me see.
When would I be available?
When will I be free?
March? September? June? November?
Nineteen thirty three?
Nineteen thirty four?
Thirty five?
Thirty six?
Never?
Never!
Never – that is the word I use,
Never – that is the word I choose,
Tell him, tell him you really tried
Tell him, tell him that really I’d rather die!
Never! Never is much to quick,
Never! He makes me much too sick
Let him save his own hateful hide
Let him know he’s so hateful, I’d rather die!

OLIVER & OWEN
Lily, come back to him!
LILY
Never, I hear that his failure has been fantastic

OLIVER & OWEN
Lily, come back to him!
He might do something drastic.
Lily, he hasn’t a cufflink on which to borrow.

LILY
Lovely!

OLIVER & OWEN
They’re taking his theatre away tomorrow

LILY
Never! That is the word I seek.
Never! That is the word I shrieeeeeeek!
Never – tell him you heard it here;
Never – tell him you heard it clear,
Tell him if he comes through the door
I will trample him through the floor.
Tell him, tell him I’ll strangle him!
Tell him, tell him I’m mangle him!
Tell him… (stutters incoherently)
Go back with him.
Here’s my reply:
Let me see… I’d rather die!
