Devil Take The Hindmost - Andrew Lloyd Webber

R: Miss Giry, I'm not afraid of him. I've bested him before and if he ever had the courage to meet me face to face, man to
Man...
No, no it can't be.
P: Not afraid of me, you say?
R: Stay back or I'll kill you, I promise you!
P: Of course. As you say, you've beaten me before, but that was a long time ago, Vicomte. And we were playing a different
Game.
Look at you, deep in debt
Stinking drunk - pitiful
Shall we two make a bet?
Devil take he hindmost
R: Look at you, foul as sin
Hideous - horrible
Call the stakes, deal me in
Devil take the hindmost
P: Our Christine shall choose tonight
R: Let her choose
P: Is she yours or mine?
R: Draw the line
P: If she sings you lose tonight
R: I won't lose
P: You leave from here
R: Fine!
P: Disappear
R: Fine! And if she won't, if I win
P: All your debts wiped away
R: Very well, let's begin
Both: Devil take the hindmost
(Simultaneously)
R: You think you have the odds
You think you're in control
You think you've fixed the dice
Well I will gladly roll
I'll bet against the house
I'll even double down
P: Our game, it's been changed
Evey throw risking her
All the rules rearranged
Fate has redesigned those
R: Fortune's on my side
I won her long ago, I won her from you then
I beat you even now, I'll win her back again
P: Cut the deck, let us play
Roll your die once again
R: And when the game is done!
P: Either way!
Both: Devil take the hindmost
Now Christine shall choose at last
Is she yours or mine?
R: We've a son - our bond's secure
P: Are you sure?
R: What?
P: Are you so sure?
R: What do you mean?
P: Such a child, strange to see
Different, musical
R: Huh?
P: Is he more you or me?
Which one do you find most?
R: You lie.
(Simultaneously)
P: Deal the cards, let them fall
Choose your hand, try your best
He who wins, wins it all
R: I call your bluff - the game is on
And we will see who wins
He who runs it out wins it all
Both: Devil take he hindmost
P: Deal the cards, let them fall
Choose your hand, try your best
He who wins wins it all
R: I call your bluff - the game is on
And we will see who wins out
He who runs it out wins it all
Both: Devil take the hindmost!
P: She walks, you leave together
Pockets full
Debts paid.
She sings - you leave alone.
Devil take the hindmost.
R: Oh, God. What have I done? Look at me - the concert's only hours away.
