The Man Is Mine Lyrics

MARIA

LET ME TELL YOU ALL A LITTLE OF HIM,

FOR I'VE OBSERVED AND INTERESTING QUIRK:

HE THINKS THAT ALL WHO LOOK AT HIM MUST LOVE HIM,

AND THIS IS WHERE MY METHOD GOES TO WORK.

I KNOW HIS TYPE.

THE MAN IS VAIN.

THE MAN'S A RIPE TOMATO

HANGING ON THE VINE.

A LITTLE LUCK,

A LITTLE PLUCK,

WILL MAKE IT PLAIN IN TIME -

THE MAN IS MINE.

TOBY

What will you do?

MARIA

I can write very much like my lady. In fact, the untrained eye can hardly make distinction between our hands.

TOBY

I smell a plot.

ANDREW

I have it in my nose, too!

MARIA

I WILL SET SOME PRETTY WORDS BEFORE HIM,

AND HE WILL SEIZE UPON 'EM LIKE A CLUE.

ASSUMING AS HE DOES THAT ALL ADORE HIM,

HIS ONLY THOUGHT WILL BE TO FIND OUT WHO.

AND JUST LIKE THAT

THE MAN'S A MEAL.

THE MAN'S A FAT DELICIOUS

MACK'REL ON THE LINE.

A LITTLE BAIT,

A LITTLE BITE,

AND THEN I REEL HIM IN.

THE MAN IS MINE.

TOBY

He will think, from a letter you write, that my niece is in love with him!

MARIA

My purpose is indeed a horse of that color.

ANDREW

And your horse will make him an ass!

MARIA

Ass, I doubt not.

(sings)

HE'LL BE A FOOL BY BEING WHAT HE WANTS TO BE.

HE IS A FOOL - I ONLY NEED TO SET HIM FREE

TO BE A FOOL FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE.

HE'LL BE A FOOL FOR ME.

THE MAN'S A GOOSE,

AND SHE'S A SWAN.

FESTE

NO, SHE'S THE PEARL

YOU HAVE TO HURL BEFORE THE SWINE.

MARIA

A LITTLE HOT BENEATH THE POT

AND THEN THE GOOSE IS COOKED.

TOBY

THE PIG IS POKED.

FESTE

THE FISH IS HOOKED.

ANDREW

THE CHICKEN'S CHOKED.

TOBY

THE TOMATO'S PLUCKED.

FESTE

THE PEARL IS HURLED.

ANDREW

THE OYSTER'S SHUCKED.

MARIA

AND ALL THE WORLD IS FINE.

THE MAN IS MINE.
