She Loves Me - Mr. Novack, Will You Please? Lyrics

2016 Broadway revival
She Loves Me the Musical - Mr. Novack, Will You Please? Lyrics


"Mr. Novack, Will You Please?" is a song from Broadway musical SHE LOVES ME performed by Laura Benanti (Amalia) and Waiter. The song is written by Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock.

Amalia:
At the count of five I’ll scream, so you’d better go, and soon!
One.
(Georg: I just want to talk to you.)

Don’t forget I’ve had some wine, and nothing to eat since noon.
Two!
(Georg: Miss Balash, are you intoxicated?)

Dante once described all the depths of Hell — If I have my way you will know them well.
Three.
(Georg: Miss Balash…)

You are easily the most insensitive man alive.
(Georg: I’m surprised at you!)
I’m sorry, but I’m fighting for my life.
Four.
Four and half.
Will you go? Then —
FIVE!
<<SCREAM!!!>>

Waiter:
Are you trying to ruin me, lady, I warn you, get out!
That’s all, get out!
(Georg: Wait a minute…)
You, too, get out!
(Amalia: You don’t understand…)
Screaming like lunatics — that’s all, get out!
(Georg: How dare you speak to a lady that way?)
(spoken loudly) Ladies don’t scream in cafes!
