Letra Mountain Duet


Florence
This is the one situation i wanted most to avoid
Nothing i say will convince him this isn't a trick.

The russian
A drink on a clear moonlit night - i relax, she smiles
There's something unpleasant going on

Florence
So with immaculate timing, i'm left to carry the can
Embarrassed, outnumbered, marooned

The russian
Now she can't be working for them - i mean us
She seems so very straightforward
But where is he?

Florence
He has to come back - he wanted this meeting, well didn't he?

The russian
Maybe he's scared - just as scared as he was in the game

Florence
Oh i just couldn't care less
He can go right ahead, go and wreck his career
I know i've done my best

The russian
Well, at least she's a good-looking spy.

Florence
What if my russian friend thinks that my plans
Are more of an intimate kind?
If i don't say something and soon
He'll go - nobody's on nobody's side.

The russian
Listen, i hate to break up the mood
Get to the point, begin the begin
Haven't you noticed we're a protagonist short
In this idyllic, well-produced scene?

Florence
All i can say is moments ago
He was right here ready and waiting

The russian
Never mind him -i haven't missed him so far

Both
Maybe it won't do any harm
To struggle on without his charm?
Funny how all at once i feel
That he can go jump off the mountain i won't care

Florence
This is the one situation i wanted most to avoid

The russian
My dear opponent - i really can't imagine why

Florence
So i am not dangerous then?
What a shame!

The russian
Oh you're not dangerous - who could think that of you?

Both
You - you are so strange - why can't you be what you ought to be?
You should be scheming, intriguing, too clever by half -

The russian
I have to hand it to you
For you've managed to make me forget why i ever agreed to this farce.

Both
I don't know why i can't think of anything
I would rather do
Than be wasting my time
On mountains with you
