Florence:
Well we can’t complain
That you’ve been ignored by the press.

Freddie:
What’d they say? What’d they say?

Florence:
They’re not too polite…

Freddie:
They say I’m a shit?

Florence:
Well, yes. They pulled you to pieces…
In five different languages,
The Times: “You thrive on unpleasantness.”

FLORENCE: (In French)
“Le Monde: Freddie Trumper, La Honte des ?cheques.”

FREDDIE:
I can’t believe that they don’t see my game.
I’m like that tennis player, what’s his name?
They love to hate me and for us,
That’s dollars!

FLORENCE: (In German)

FREDDIE:
Hey look here’s some piece that
Some idiot’s written on you.

“Florence Vassey: petite, Hungarian-born personal assistant.”

“His gentle companion…”
Ha! If they only knew.

FLORENCE:
What do you mean? I’m always gentle with you, Freddie!

FREDDIE AND FLORENCE:
“She stands
By her champion.”

FREDDIE:
I like this!

FREDDIE AND FLORENCE:
“Whose demands
Are so infantile.”

FREDDIE:
I don’t like this.

FLORENCE:
If you don’t like it then it’s up to you.
They like the Russian they could like you too.

FREDDIE:
Commie newspapers!

Of course the bastards all support
The Russian.

FLORENCE:
But Sergievsky seems a sweet opponent.
So why do you abuse him all the time?

Freddie, I love you very much but please,
Just for once, don’t go on about the Russians at the press conference, okay?
