Chess - Anatoly and the Press Lyrics

1988 Broadway
Chess the Musical - Anatoly and the Press Lyrics

REPORTER: (spoken)
Excuse me, Mr. Sergievsky,
Why are you leaving Russia?
What about your wife and family?

How long was this planned?
What made you defect?
Did anyone help you?
And do you expect
To be joined in your exile
By loved ones, e.g. your wife?
Or are you starting again
In all aspects of life?

REPORTER: (spoken)
Will you be defending your title next year in Bangkok?

ANATOLY: (spoken)
Walter, you bastard,
You never told me you and Global would fix all this!

WALTER: (spoken)
Welcome to the West, Anatoly

REPORTER: (spoken)
Why did you leave Russia?

ANATOLY: (spoken)
I don't leave anything!
