Musicals – Chess - Molokov And Anatoly lyrics
Molokov: [Spoken]
The man is utterly mad. Believe me, Anatoly, you're
Playing a lunatic.

Anatoly: [Spoken]
That's the problem. He's a brilliant lunatic, and you can't
Tell which way he'll jump. Like his game, he's impossible
To analyze. You can't predict him, dissect him, which of
Course means he's not a lunatic at all.

What we've just seen's
A pathetic display
From a man who's
Beginning to crack.
He's afraid--
He knows he isn't
The player he was,
And he won't get it back.

Why do you people
Always want to believe
Third-rate propaganda?

My friend, please relax,
We're all on your side.
You know how you need us.

I don't need my army
Of so-called advisors,
And helpers
To tell me the man
Who's revitalized chess
Is more or less out of his brain,
When it's very clear
He's sane.

Listen, we don't
Underestimate Trumper.
We won't get caught
In that trap.
After all, winning or losing
Reflects on us all.

Oh, don't give me that crap.
I win, no one else does,
And I take the rap if I lose.

It's not quite that simple--
The whole world's tuned in,
We're all on display.
We're not merely sportsmen.

Oh, please don't start
Spouting that old party line.
Yes, I know it's you job,
But just get out and get me
My chess-playing second.
In 36 hours we begin--
That is if you want to win!

Molokov: [Spoken]
Wanting is not sufficient. We have to know. We have
To make sure. All men have a weakness. His is that
Woman. Take her, and you win the game.

Anatoly: [Spoken]
So you think I can't win otherwise?

Molokov: [Spoken]
I'm not saying that. I'm just making certain. And she
Is attractive. Then there's her intriguing family history--
Hungary, 1956 and all that.

Anatoly: [Spoken]
I'm a chess player, Mr. Molokov. You go and play
These other games.
