Chess In Concert – Florence Quits lyrics

Frederick: [Spoken]
Five games to one. It's all over.

So you got
What you want.
What a nasty ambition.
Set me up,
Pull me down,
Then exploit my condition.

I should have guessed, woman,
That if pressed, woman,
You're on nobody's side
But your own.
And you're behaving
Like a mere woman,
It's so clear, woman,
It's your sex!
Once they start
Getting old,
And getting worried,
They let fly,
Take it out
On the one
Who supports them--
That's you
I'm talking about.

Who'd ever guess it?
Such a squalid little ending
Watching you descending
Just as far as you can go.
I'm learning
Things I didn't want to know.

Frederick & Florence:
Who'd ever think it?
This would be the situation.

One more observation

Frederick & Florence:
How'd we ever get this far
Before you showed me
What you really are?

You'll be lost without me
To abuse like you're used to.

Go away!
Just get out!
Be someone else's
