How Many Women Lyrics

[FLORENCE]

How many women would drive themselves crazy

By arguing over a game of chess?

Not very many -- the way things are going

There'll soon be one less!

[FREDDIE]

Don't believe you, sweetie pie --

[FLORENCE]

Listen, Freddie -- I too had ambitions

How did I get waylaid?

How can such a flower

A sensitive soul, a delicate child

Wind up as a nursemaid

Respectably set for the glittering prizes

Instead of which I landed you --

[FREDDIE]

You'll get your prizes!

I'm ninety percent of the way to the top of the heap.

[FLORENCE]

Thanks -- ten percent -- you got me cheap.

[FREDDIE]

No, no, Florence -- I mean we are ninety percent of the way --

[FLORENCE]

How many women -- articulate women

With something to shout about --

Spend their time

Playing a game in which silence is golden

And speaking a crime?

[FREDDIE]

Maybe if he moved his king....

[FLORENCE]

All of my struggles for qualifications --

My nights with Goethe and Proust

Recklessly abandoned

For you who thinks Chekhov is king to G3

And Joyce my college roommate!

But then when I show you a move you can't fathom

I have to admit it feels great --

[FREDDIE]

Great news for chess fans!

Yeah, that's how he did it -- yeah, that's how the Communist

plays!

[FLORENCE]

Maybe I deserve a raise.
