Musicals – Chess - The Arbiter lyrics
[Verse 1]
The Arbiter:
I've a duty as a referee
At the start of a match
On behalf of all our sponsors
I must welcome you
Which I do there's a catch:
I don't care if you're a champion,
No one messes with me.
I am ruthless in upholding
What I know is right,
Black or white, as you'll see.

[Chorus]
Soloists:
I'm on the case, I'm on the case,
Can't be fooled. Can't be fooled.
Any objection Any objection
Is overruled. Is overruled.
Yes, I'm the Arbiter
And I know best.

Soloists:
He's impartial,
Don't push him,
He's unimpressed.

The Arbiter: Soloists:
You got your tricks, You got your tricks,
Good for you, Good for you,
But there's no gambit But there's no gambit
I don't see through. I don't see through.
Oh, I'm the Arbiter,
I know the score.

The Arbiter & Soloists:
From square one
I'll be watching all 64.

[Verse 2]
The Arbiter:
If you're thinking
Of the kind of thing
That we've seen in the past
Chanting gurus, walkie-talkies,
Walkouts, hypnotists,
Tempers, fists,
Not so fast.

[Verse 3]
This is not the start
Of World War Three--
No political ploys.
I think both your
Constitutions are terrific,
So know you know,
Be good boys.

[Chorus]
Soloists:
I'm on the case, I'm on the case,
Can't be fooled. Can't be fooled.
Any objection Any objection
Is overruled. Is overruled.
Yes, I'm the Arbiter
And I know best.

Soloists:
He's impartial,
Don't push him,
He's unimpressed.

The Arbiter: Soloists:
You got your tricks, You got your tricks,
Good for you, Good for you,
But there's no gambit But there's no gambit
I don't see through. I don't see through.
Oh, I'm the Arbiter,
I know the score.

The Arbiter & Soloists:
From square one
I'll be watching all 64.

[Outro]
The Arbiter:
Oh, I'm the Arbiter,
I know the score.

The Arbiter & Soloists:
From square one
I'll be watching all 64.
