Lyrics
Bravo! And after the theatre, supper and dance.
Music! Ooom pah pah, oom pah pah...

Up in the sky, someone is playing a trombone and a guitar.
Red is your tie, and in your velveteen coat, you hide a star.
Monica, Monica, dance the waltz
Monica, Monica, dance the waltz
Follow me, moon and sun
Keep time with me, one two three one.

If you're not shy, pin up my hair with your star and buckle my shoe.
And when you fly, please hold on tight to my waist
I'm flying with you, oh...
Monica, Monica, dance the waltz
Monica, Monica, dance the waltz
Follow me, moon and sun
Follow me, follow follow me
Follow me, follow follow me.

What is the matter, Toby?
What is it you want to tell me?
Kneel down before me.
And now tell me...

Monica monica, can't you see
that my heart is bleeding, bleeding for you?
I loved you Monica all my life
with all my breath, with all my blood.
You haunt the mirror of my sleep, you are my night.
You are my light and the jailer of my day.

How dare you scoundrel talk to me like that!
Don't you know who I am?
I'm the queen of Aroundel!
I shall have you put in chains!

You are my princess, you are my queen
and I'm only Toby, one of your slaves.
And still I love you and always loved you
with all my breath, with all my blood!
I love your laughter, I love your hair.
I love your deep and nocturnal eyes.
I love your soft hands, so white and winged.
I love the slender branch of your throat.

Toby! Don't speak to me like that...
You make my head swim.

Monica, Monica, fold me in your satin gown.
Monica, Monica, give me your mouth
Monica, Monica, fall in my arms!

Why, Toby... You're not crying, are you?
Toby, I want you to know... that you have the most beautiful voice... in the world.

How Odd!
What are the odds that two people would post this song within the
same week...! I just posted my concert version of this same aria! It is
one of my favorites. The singer is very talented, and your playing is
great. The interpretation is very similar to mine, so I can't criticize too
much... !

How Odd!
Actually, you must have known... Because I can tell you copied and pasted the
lyrics I wrote on my page onto your page... I can tell because I wrote down the
lyrics from memory and used my own punctuation and capitalization. And I
use a lot of "..." as well. Hmmm...

How Odd!
Yes, you are right - I confess! I was inspired by your posting to put Devon's up. We had just done a concert at a senior citizen home in Claremont and had wanted to post something of hers. I admit it was just too convenient to copy your lyrics. I hop you don't mind. I enjoyed your performance very much, too.

How Odd!
Ha! No problem. I couldn't find the lyrics posted anywhere on the net, so I
had to write them out myself. Glad I could be of some help... One of my all-
time favorite arias.

Very good singing from a high school student
She has a well-trained voice, and you are an excellent accompanist. I
detect a bit of static in the recording on occasion, but generally clean
production. Nice job.

Big Voice
You have a big voice for only being a HS senior. You sing the song too fast though. I like the other person tempo better.
