Chess – The American And Florence (Do You Wanna Los Your O lyrics

You want to lose your only friend?
Well keep it up, you're doing fine
Why this humiliation?
Why treat me like a fool?
I've taken shit for seven years
And I won't take it anymore.

The american
I'm only teasing Soviets
With gentle bonhomie
And you've a better reason to be anti-them than me

There's a time and there's a place.

The american
Is this the girl always said
She wants to know the truth?

There's a time and there's a place...

Choir (In background throughout entire sequence)
1956--Budapest is rising
1956--Budapest is fighting
1956--Budapest is falling
1956--Budapest is dying

The american
I'd have thought you'd support
Any attack on these people
On the people who ran
Mindlessly over your childhood
Don't let them fool you for
Thirty years on they're the same
They see chess as a war
Playing with pawns just like Poland
If you walk out on me
They will have won the first battle
Wouldn't your father
Have begged you to stay in the game?

He would--but he didn't know you
He'd loathe your behavior and so do I--
Why'd you have to do this to me?

(M/N: After this the music to Nobod's Side starts)
