Musicals – Chess – What A Scene! What A Joy! lyrics

Frederick: What a scene, What a joy, What a lovely sight When my game is The big sensation! Has the mob's sporting taste Altered overnight? Have they found New sophistication? Florence: Not yet! They just want to see If the nice guy Beats the bum. If it's East-West, And the money's sky high-- Florence & Frederick: They all come. Frederick: You can raise all you want, If you raise the roof Scream and shout, And the gate increases. Break the rules, Break the bank, I'm the living proof They don't care How I move my pieces. Well, I know I'm the best there is, But all they want is a show. Well, that's all right, I'll be glad to oblige-- Florence & Frederick: SRO SRO!
