Save One Lyrics

VIOLA

YOU ARE AS I'D HAVE YOU BE

IN EV'RY RESPECT SAVE ONE.

YOU HAVE EV'RY QUALITY

I ASK IN A MATE SAVE ONE.

YOUR ONLY FLAW THAT I CAN SEE

IS YOU ARE NOT IN LOVE WITH ME.

BUT YOU ARE AS I'D HAVE YOU BE,

EXACTLY AS I'D HAVE YOU BE,

IN EV'RY RESPECT SAVE ONE.

OLIVIA

I HAVE FELT NO PANG OF LOVE

FOR ANY I'VE MET, SAVE ONE.

MY IDEAL WAS HIGH ABOVE

THE WHOLE OF THE WORLD SAVE ONE.

I HARDLY THOUGHT I'D EVER FIND

THE PARAGON I HAD IN MIND

BUT YOU ARE AS I DREAMED YOU'D BE

EXACTLY AS I DREAMED YOU'D BE

IN EV'RY RESPECT, SAVE ONE.

VIOLA AND OLIVIA

ALL MY LIFE,

I'VE ALWAYS BEEN THE WISE ONE

COOL AND CALM,

WHILE OTHERS PLAYED THE FOOL.

NOW, IN YOU,

I'VE FOUND THE ONE EXCEPTION TO MY RULE.

ORSINO AND VIOLA

YOU ARE AS I'D HAVE YOU BE

IN EV'RY RESPECT SAVE ONE.

ORSINO

YOU HAVE EV'RY QUALITY

I ASK IN A MATE SAVE ONE.

YOUR ONLY FLAW THAT I CAN SEE

IS YOU ARE NOT IN LOVE WITH ME.

BUT...

YOU ARE AS I'D HAVE YOU BE,

EXACTLY AS I'D HAVE YOU BE,

IN EV'RY RESPECT

(in counterpoint)

VIOLA

YOU ARE AS I'D HAVE YOU BE,

EXACTLY AS I'D HAVE YOU BE,

IN EV'RY RESPECT

(in counterpoint)

OLIVIA

YOU ARE AS I'D HAVE YOU BE,

EXACTLY AS I'D HAVE YOU BE,

IN EV'RY RESPECT

ORSINO, VIOLA, AND OLIVIA

SAVE ONE.

ALL MY LIFE,

I'VE ALWAYS BEEN THE WISE ONE

COOL AND CALM,

WHILE OTHERS PLAYED THE FOOL.

NOW, IN YOU,

I'VE FOUND THE ONE EXCEPTION TO MY RULE.

OLIVIA

AND THERE MAY COME A WEDDING DAY

WHEN SOMEONE ELSE WILL HEAR YOU SAY

THE HAPPIEST PHRASE,

(in counterpoint)

ORSINO AND VIOLA

THERE MAY COME A WEDDING DAY

WHEN SOMEONE ELSE WILL HEAR THE HAPPIEST PHRASE,

OLIVIA, VIOLA, AND ORSINO

BAR NONE.

AND ALL WILL REJOICE

SAVE ONE.
