Ludicrous have you seen the score?
Simply ludicrous, it's the final straw
This is lunacy! Well you know my views
Utter lunacy! But we daren't refuse
Not another chandelier
Look, my friend, what we have here
Dear Andre re my orchestrations
We need another first first basoon.
Get a player with tone and that third trombone
Has to go
The man could not be deafer so please preferably on who plays in tune!
Dear Firmin vis a via my opera
Some members must be sacked
If you could find out which has a sense of pitch
Wisely though
I've managed to assign a rather minor role to those who cannot act!
What is it now?
This whole affair is an outrage!
Now what's the matter?
Have you seen the size of my part?
Signora, listen
It's an insult
Not you as well!
Just look at this it's an insult
please understand
The things I have to do for my art!
If you can call this gibberish art.
Ah! Here's our little flower
Ah Miss Daae quite the lady of the hour!
You have secured the largest role in this "Don Juan"
Christine Daae? She doesn't have the voice
Signora, please!
Then I take it you agree
She's behind this
It appears we have no choice
She's the one behind this! Christine Daae!
How dare you! (I'm not a fool)
You evil woman, how dare you!
You think I'm blind?
This isn't my fault
I don't want any part in this plot!
Miss Daae, surely
But why not?
What does she say?
It's your decision but why not?
She's backing out!
You have a duty!
I cannot sing it duty or not
You don't have to
They can't make you
Please monsieur, another note
Fondest greetings to you all
A few instructions just before rehearsal starts
Our Don Juan must lose some weight
It's not healthly in a man of Piangi's age
And my managers must learn
Their place is in an office not the arts
As for Miss Christine Daae
No doubt she'll do her best
It's true her voice is good, she knows
Though should she wish to excel
She has much yet to learn
If pride will let her return to me
Her teacher, her teacher
Your obedient friend and Angel.
We have been blind
And yet the answer is staring us in the face
This could be the chance to ensare our clever friend
We're listening go on
We shall play his game
Preform his work but remember we hold the ace
For if Miss Daae sings, He is certain to attend
We make certain the doors are barred
We make certain our men are there
We make certain they're armed
The curtain falls, His reign will end!
Not if it works!
This is madness!
The tide will turn
Monsieur, believe me. There is no way of turning the tide
You stick to ballet!
Then help us!
Monsiuer I can't
Instead of warning us, help us!
I wish I could
Don't make excuses
Or could be that you're on his side?
Monsieur, believe me I intend no ill
But Monsieur be careful we have seen him kill!
We say he'll fall and fall he will!
She's the one behind this Christine Daae
This is all a ploy to help Christine!
Angel of music, fear my fury (fear his fury)
What glory can you hope to gain?
It's clear to all this girl is insane!
Christine sings, we'll get our man
Say your prayers black angel of death
If you don't stop, I'll go mad!
Raoul, I'm frightened don't make me do this
Raoul is scares me don't put me through this ordeal by fire
He'll take me I know we'll be parted forever he wont let me go
What I once dreamed I now dread
If he finds me, it won't ever end
And he'll always be there singing songs in my head
He'll always be there singing songs in my head
She's mad...
You said yourself he was nothing but a man
Yet while he lives
He will haunt us
til we're dead
Twisted every way
What answer can give?
Am I to risk my life to win the chance to live?
Can I betray the man who once inspired my voice?
Do I become his prey? Do I have any choice?
He kills without a thought
He murders all that's good
I know I can't refuse and yet
I wish I could
Oh God, if I agree what horrors wait for me
In this the Phantom's opera...
Christine, Christine
Don't think, that I don't care
But every hope
And every prayer
Rests on you now

So it is to be war between us
But this time, clever friend, the disaster
Will be yours!

Don Juan, Signor Piangi here is the phrase
"Those who tangle with Don Juan"
If you please
Those who tangle with Don Juan
No, no, nearly but no
Those who tan tan tan
Those who tangle with Don Juan
His way is better at least he make it sound like music
Signora, would you speak that way in the presence of the composer?
The composer is not here!
Are you certain of that, Signora?
And if he were here, I will say to him-
Once again! After seven
Five, six, seven
Those who tangle with Don Juan
Ah piu non posso! What does it matter what notes he sings?
No one will care!
Those who tangle with Don Juan
Those who tan- tan- is right?
Not quite, Signor
If you please!
Those who tangle with Don Juan

Poor young maiden! The thrill on your tounge of stolen sweets
You'll have to pay the bill
Tangled in the winding sheets

In sleep he sang to me
In dreams he came
That voice calls to me
And speaks my name
