Prima Donna 歌詞

Prima Donna (女主角) - Phantom Of The Opera Original London Cast

Andr-

Your public needs you

 

Firmin-

We need you too

Carlotta-

Would you not rather have your

Precious little ingnue

Andr and Firmin-

Signora no

 

The world wants you

 

Prima donna

First lady of the stage

 

Your devotees

 

Are on their knees

 

To implore you

 

Andr-

Can you bow out

When they're shouting

 

Your name

 

Firmin-

Think of how they all adore you

Andr and Firmin-

Prima donna

Enchant us once again

Andr-

Think of your muse

Firmin-

And of the queues

Round the theatre

 

Andr and Firmin-

Can you deny us the triumph in store

 

Andre and Firmin-

Sing prima donna

 

Once more

Raoul-

Christine spoke of an angel

Carlotta-

Prima donna

Your song shall live again

Andr and Firmin-

Think of your public

Carlotta-

You took a snub

But there's a public

Who needs you

Giry-

She has heard the voice

Of the angel of music

Andr and Firmin-

Those who hear your voice

Liken you to an angel

Carlotta-

Think of their cry

Of undying

Support

Raoul-

Is this her angel of music

Andr-

We get our opera

Firmin-

She gets her limelight

Carlotta-

Follow where the limelight

Leads you

Meg-

Is this ghost

An angel or a madman

Raoul-

Angel or madmadman

Andr and Firmin-

Leading ladies are a trial

Carlotta-

Prima donna

Your song shall never die

Meg-

Voice of hell or of heaven

Giry

Heaven help you those who doubt

Carlotta

You'll sing again

And to unending

Ovation

Raoul

Orders Warnings

Lunatic demands

Giry

This miscasting

Will invite damnation

Andr and Firmin

Tears oaths

Lunatic demands

Are regular occurences

Meg

Bliss or damnation

Which has claimed her

Carlotta-

Think how you'll shine

In that final

Encore

Sing prima donna

Once more

Giry-

Oh fools

To have flouted his warnings

Raoul-

Surely for her sake

Meg-

Surely he'll strike back

Andr and Firmin-

Surely there'll be further scenes -

Worse than this

Giry-

Think before

These demands are rejected

Raoul-

I must see these demands are rejected

Meg-

If his threats

And demands are rejected

Andr and Firmin-

Who'd believe a diva

Happy to relieve a

Chorus girl who's gone

And slept with the patron

Raoul and the soubrette

Entwined in love's duet

Although he may demur

He must have been with her

Meg and Raoul

Christine must be protected

Carlotta-

O fortunata

Non ancor

Abbandonata

Andr and Firmin-

You'd never get away

With all this in a play

But if it's loudly sung

And in a foreign tongue

It's just the sort of story

Audiences adore in fact a perfect

Opera

Raoul-

His game is over

Giry-

This is a game

You cannot hope to win

Raoul-

And in Box Five

A new game will begin

Giry-

For if his curse

Is on this opera

Meg-

But if his curse

Is on this opera

Andr and Firmin-

Prima donna

The world is at your feet

A nation waits

And how it hates

To be cheated

Carlotta-

The stress that falls upon a

Famous prima donna

Terrible deseases

Coughs and colds and sneezes

Still the dryest throat

Will reach the highest note

In search of perfect

Opera

Meg and Giry-

Then I fear the outcome

Raoul-

Christine plays the Pageboy

Carlotta plays the Countess

Giry-

Should you dare to

Meg-

When you once again

All-

Light up the stage

With that age-old rapport

Sing prima donna

 

Once more

 

Phantom(spoken)-

So it is war between us

 

If these demands are not met a disaster

Beyond your imagination will occur

All-

 

Once more
