“MARION”

MICHAEL:  My friends, henceforth the star of my destiny is Marion!

SNITCHEY:  You don't mean...

CRAGGS:  It couldn't be...

SNITCHEY:  Not Dr. Jeddler's daughter?

CRAGGS:  Not...Marion!

MICHAEL

    I STOP IN MY TRACKS
    I'M THROWN FOR A LOSS
    WHEN I SEE THIS VISION

SNITCHEY:  Mr. Warden, you must know she's engaged!

MICHAEL

    YOU'VE SPOKEN YOUR PIECE
    YOU'VE TOLD ME THE FACTS
    I'VE MADE MY DECISION

CRAGGS:  But sir!

MICHAEL:  MARION!

CRAGGS:  You’re poor!

MICHAEL:  MARION!

SNITCHEY:  She’s poor!

MICHAEL:  COME TAKE MY HAND AND  I'LL SHOW YOU THE ENDS OF THE EARTH

SNITCHEY:  Oh, this is not good at all.  What about...

MICHAEL

    GENTLEMEN, PLEASE UNDERSTAND AND
    DON'T PLAGUE ME WITH QUESTIONS OF WORTH

CRAGGS:  We're obliged to tell Dr. Jeddler of your intentions, you know!

MICHAEL

    NO QUARRY OF GOLD
    OR GLITTERING GEM
    COULD EVER OUTSHINE HER

SNITCHEY:  We can't, Mr. C.

MICHAEL

    THE WEALTH OF THE KING
    A PIRATE SHIP'S HOLD
    BY HER WOULD SEEM MINOR

SNITCHEY:  Priviledged.

MICHAEL:  MARION

CRAGGS:  No!

MICHAEL:  MARION!

SNITCHEY:  Yes!

MICHAEL:  WITH YOU I'M RICH AND WITHOUT YOU I'M HUMBLE MY DEAR

CRAGGS:  Oh, dear.

MICHAEL:  YOU'RE DEAR

SNITCHEY:  My.

MICHAEL:  A MIRACLE MONEY CAN'T BUY

CRAGGS:  Well...

MICHAEL:  MARION AND I WILL LIVE ON LOVE UNTIL WE DIE.

SNITCHEY:  Mind the stair on your way down, Mr. Warden, for your star don't shine there!

ALFRED

    SHE'S MEEK AS A LAMB
    YET STRONG AS AN OX
    NO WONDER I'M FALLING
    ALONE IN THE NIGHT
    WHEREVER I AM
    I HEAR MYSELF CALLING
    MARION! MARION!
    SOON YOU'LL BE NEAR TO ME
    HAPPY AND HOMEY, CONTENT
    MARION
    SOMEHOW IT'S CLEAR TO ME
    YOU ARE A GIFT HEAVEN SENT

MICHAEL

    SHE’S FIRE AND ICE
    I HAVEN’T THE WORDS.

ALFRED

    SHE KNOWS A WIFE'S DUTY

MICHAEL

    SHE SINGS LIKE THE BIRDS

ALFRED

    HER MANNERS ARE NICE

MICHAEL

    MAGNIFICENT BEAUTY

BOTH

    NO ONE CAN SEE YOU THE WAY THAT I SEE YOU
    YOU'RE MINE, ALL MINE!
    I KNOW SHE'S MY OWN

ALFRED:  SHE'S CONSTANT AND PURE  

MICHAEL:  SHE’S READY TO TAKE OFF

ALFRED:  SHE'LL STAY BY MY SIDE   

MICHAEL:  SHE’S FALSELY DEMURE

ALFRED:  AS SOLID AS STONE   

MICHAEL:  THE WEDDING SHE’LL BREAK OFF.

BOTH

    MARION! MARION!
    RADIANT, STIRRING
    A SUNBURST OCCURRING
    ON EARTH -
    BOUNTIFUL TREASURE
    THERE'S NO WAY TO MEASURE YOUR WORTH

    YOU’RE DEAR

MICHAEL

    YOU'RE FREE

    A MIRACLE MONEY CAN'T BUY
    MARION AND I

BOTH

    UNTIL WE DIE.
