SALLY BOWLES:
If anyone should ask you about me one day, Cliff, you have two alternatives
You can either say, yes it's true, we're living in delicious sin, or you can
Simply tell them the truth and say,
I met this perfectly marvelous girl,
In this perfectly wonderful place,
As I lifted the glass to the start of this marvelous year
Before you knew would she call on the phone inviting
Next moment I was no longer alone, but set reciting
Some perfectly beautiful buzz
In my charming American style
How I dazzled the senses with truly no less than a guile
Now I've this perfectly marvelous girl
In my perfectly beautiful room
And we're living together and having a marvelous time...
CLIFF:
Oh, Sally, I'm afraid it wouldn't work.
You're much too distracting.
SALLY:
Distracting? No, inspiring!
She tells me perfectly marvelous tales
Of her prettily scandalous life
Which I'll probably use
As a chapter or two in my book
and since my stay in Berlin was to force creation
What luck to fall on a fabulous source of stimulation
That perfectly marvelous tool
Is a perfect dream to be
Just as still as a mouse fall
I'm giving my novel a word
Yes, I've the highly agreeable life
In my perfectly beautiful room
With my nearly invisible
Perfectly marvelous girl.
CLIFF:
I met this truly remarkable girl
In this really incredible town
And she still fully managed to
Talk away into my room
SALLY:
Oh, Cliff!
CLIFF:
I have a terrible feeling I said a dumb thing
Besides I've only got one narrow bed...
SALLY:
We'll think of something!
CLIFF:
And now this wild unpredictable girl
SALLY:
And this perfectly beautiful man
BOTH:
We'll be living together
And having a marvelous time!
