Masquerade / Why So Silent lyrics
CHORUS
Masquerade!
Paper faces on parade . . .
Masquerade!
Hide your face,
so the world will
never find you!

Masquerade!
Every face a different shade . . .
Masquerade!
Look around -
there's another
mask behind you!

Flash of mauve . . .
Splash of puce . . .
Fool and king . . .
Ghoul and goose . . .
Green and black . . .
Queen and priest . . .
Trace of rouge . . .
Face of beast . . .

Faces . . .
Take your turn, take a ride
on the merry-go-round . . .
in an inhuman race . . .

Eye of gold . . .
Thigh of blue . . .
True is false . . .
Who is who . . .?
Curl of lip . . .
Swirl of gown . . .
Ace of hearts . . .
Face of clown . . .

Faces . . .
Drink it in, drink it up,
till you've drowned
in the light . . .
in the sound . . .

RAOUL/CHRISTINE
But who can name the face . . .?

ALL
Masquerade!
Grinning yellows,
spinning reds . . .
Masquerade!
Take your fill -
let the spectacle
astound you!

Masquerade!
Burning glances,
turning heads . . .
Masquerade!
Stop and stare
at the sea of smiles
around you!

Masquerade!
Seething shadows
breathing lies . . .
Masquerade!
You can fool
any friend who
ever knew you!

Masquerade!
Leering satyrs,
peering eyes . . .
Masquerade!
Run and hide -
but a face will
still pursue you!

(The ENSEMBLE activity becomes background, as
ANDRE, FIRMIN, MEG, GIRY, PIANGI and CARLOTTA
come to the fore, glasses in hand)

GIRY
What a night

MEG
What a crowd!

ANDRE
Makes you glad!

FIRMIN
Makes you proud!
All the creme
de la creme!

CARLOTTA
Watching us watching them!

MEG/GlRY
And all our fears
are in the past!

ANDRE
Six months...

PIANGI
Of relief!

CARLOTTA
Of delight!

ANDRE/FIRMIN
Of Elysian peace!

MEG/GIRY
And we can breathe at last!

CARLOTTA
No more notes!

PIANGI
No more ghost!

GIRY
Here's a health!

ANDRE
Here's a toast:
to a prosperous year!

FIRMIN
To all our friends who are here!

PIANGI/CARLOTTA
And may its
splendour never fade!

FIRMIN
Six months!

GIRY
What a joy!

MEG
What a change!

FIRMIN/ANDRE
What a blessed release!

ANDRE
And what a masquerade!

CHRISTINE
Think of it

(spoken)
A secret engagement
Look, your future bride
Just think of it

RAOUL (SPOKEN)
But why's it secret?
What have we to hide
You promised me

CHRISTINE (SPOKEN)
No Raoul, please don't
They'll see

RAOUL (SPOKEN
Well then let them see
It's an engagement, not a crime

RAOUL(SUNG)
Christine what are you afraid of...

CHRISTINE
Let's not argue
Please pretend
You will understand in time

RAOUL
Let's not argue
I can only hope I'll understand in time

PHANTOM
Why so silent good mouisseres?
Did you think that I had left you for good?
Have you missed me good mouisseres?
I have written you an opera!
Here I bring the finished score,
Don Juan triumphant!

Fondest greetings to you all
A few instructions
Just before rehearsal starts
Carlotta must be put to act
Not her normal trick of strutting 'round the stage
Our Don Juan must lose some weight
It's not healthy in a man of Piangi's age
And my managers must learn
That their place is in an office
Not the house.

As for our star
Miss Christine Daai
No doubt she'll do her best
It's true
Her voice is good, she knows though
Should she wish to excel
She has much still to learn
If pride will let her return to me
Her teacher...
Her teacher...

Her chain says a lie!
You belong to me!
