Original Broadway Cast – Light My Candle lyrics

ROGER
What'd you forget?
MIMI
Got a light?
ROGER
I know you? --You're--
You're shivering
MIMI
It's nothing
They turned off my heat
And I'm just a little
Weak on my feet
Would you light my candle?
What are you staring at?
ROGER
Nothing
Your hair in the moonlight
You look familiar
Can you make it?
MIMI
Just haven't eaten much today
At least the room stopped spinning.
Anyway, what?
ROGER
Nothing
Your smile reminded me of-
MIMI
I always remind people of - Who is she?
ROGER
She died. Her name was April
MIMI
It's out again
Sorry about your friend
Would you light my candle?
ROGER
Well-
MIMI
Yeah, ow
ROGER
Oh. The wax - It's
MIMI
Dripping! I like it - between my --
ROGER
Fingers. I figured. . .
Oh, well. Goodnight.
It blew out again?
MIMI
No - I think that I dropped my stash
ROGER
I know I've seen you out and about
When I used to go out
Your candle's out
MIMI
I'm illin' -
I had it when I walked in the door
It was pure -
Is it on the floor?
ROGER
The floor?
MIMI
They say I have the best ass
Below 14th Street
Is it true?
ROGER
What?
MIMI
You're staring again.
ROGER
Oh no.
I mean you do -- Have a nice --
I mean -- You look familiar
MIMI
Like your dead girlfriend?
ROGER
Only when you smile.
But I'm sure I've seen you somewhere else --
MIMI
Do you go to the Cat Scratch Club
That's where I work - I dance-
Help me look
ROGER
Yes!
They used to tie you up -
MIMI
It's a living
ROGER
I didn't recognize you
Without the handcuffs
MIMI
We could light the candle
Oh won't you light the candle
ROGER
Why don't you forget that stuff
You look like you're sixteen
MIMI
I'm nineteen - but I'm old for my age
I'm just born to be bad
ROGER
I once was born to be bad
I used to shiver like that
MIMI
I have no heat - I told you
ROGER
I used to sweat
MIMI
I got a cold
ROGER
Uh huh
I used to be a junkie
MIMI
But now and then I like to --
ROGER
Uh huh
MIMI
Feel good
ROGER
Here it -- Um --
MIMI
What's that?
ROGER
Candy bar wrapper
MIMI
We could light the candle
What'd you do with my candle?
ROGER
That was my last match
MIMI
Our eyes'll adjust.
Thank God for the moon
ROGER
Maybe it's not the moon at all
I hear that Spike Lee's shooting down
The street
MIMI
Bah humbug. . .Bah humbug
ROGER
Cold hands
MIMI
Yours too.
Big. Like my father's
You wanna dance?
ROGER
With you?
MIMI
No - with my father
ROGER
I'm Roger
MIMI
They call me
The call me Mimi
