Musicals – Chess - Difficult And Dangerous Times lyrics

Molokov & Diplomats:
No one can deny that
These are difficult times.
No one can deny that
These are difficult times.

Molokov: [Spoken]
Miss Vassy.

Florence: [Spoken]
Mr. Molokov.

Diplomats:
It's the U.S. versus U.S.S.R.
Yet we more or less are.

No one can deny that
These are difficult times.

To our credit putting all that aside
We have swallowed our pride.

These are very dangerous,
And difficult times.

Florence:
It really doesn't matter
Who comes on top.

Molokov:
Who gets the chop.

Molokov & Diplomats:
No one's way of life
Is threatened
By a flop.
But we're going to
Smash that bastard.
Make him wanna
Change his name.
Take him to the cleaners
And devastate him,
Wipe him out,
Humiliate him.
We don't want
The whole world saying
"They can't even win a game."

Walter:
We have never reckoned
On coming second.

Molokov:
There's no use in
Losing.
It's the red flag up against
Stars and stripes,
But we're peace-loving types.

Diplomats:
No one can deny that
These are difficult times.

Florence:
It's a sweet
Hail-fellow-well-met
Affair.

Walter:
For both eagle and bear.

Diplomats:
These are very dangerous
And difficult times.

Molokov:
For those who say that
This is not a friendly clash--
Don't be so rash.
I assure you, comrades,
That is balderdash.

Molokov & Dilpomats:
What a load of
Whingeing peasants!
Thinking they can win--
They can't!
What an exhibition
Of self-delusion.
This one's a forgone
Conclusion.
But enough of all this beating
Round the bushes of detente.
We intend to collar
The Yankee dollar.
We shall thrash them!

All:
Trash them!

Molokov:
How good to feel that
As this great event begins
It underpins
Our quest for peace--
The bonds of common interest
Of East and West.

All:
As long as our man wins.
As long as our man wins.
