(Raoul)
Miss Giry, I'm not afraid of him, I've bested him before
And if he ever had the courage to meet me face to face, man to man
No, no, it can't be
(Phantom)
Not afraid of me, you say?
(Raoul)
Stay back or I'll kill you, I promise you
Of course, as you say, you've beaten me before
But that was a long time ago, Vicomte
And we were playing a different game

(Phantom)
Look at you, deep in debt
Stinking drunk, pitiful
Shall we two make a bet?
Devil take the hindmost

(Raoul)
Look at you, foul as sin
Hideous, horrible
Call the stakes, deal me in
Devil take the hindmost

(Phantom)
Our Christine shall choose tonight
(Let her choose)
Is she yours or mine?
(Draw the line)

If she sings, you lose tonight
(I won't lose)
You leave from here
(Fine)
Disappear
(Fine)

(Raoul)
And if she won't, if I win
(All your debt's wiped away)
Very well, let's begin
Devil take the hindmost

You think you have the odds
(Our old game)
You think you're in control
(It's been changed)

You think you've fixed the dice
(Every throw)
Well, I will gladly roll
(Riskier)

I'll bet against the house
(All the rules)
I'll even double down
(Rearranged)
(Fate has redesigned most)
Fortune's on my side

I won her long ago
(Cut the deck)
I won her from you then
(Let us play)

I beat you even now
(You and I )
I'll win her back again
(Once again)

(In the end)
And when the game is done
Either way
Devil take the hindmost

Now Christine shall choose at last
Is she yours or mine?
We've a son, our bond's secure
Are you sure?
What?
Are you so sure?

What do you mean?
Such a child, strange to see, different, musical
Huh?
Is he more you or me?
Which one do you find most?
You lie

Deal the cards
(I call your bluff)
Let them fall
(The game is on)

Choose your hand
(And we will see)
Try your best
(Who wins out)

He who wins
(Once and for all)
Wins it all
Devil take the hindmost

Deal the cards
(I call your bluff)
Let them fall
(The game is on)

Choose your hand
(And we will see)
Try your best
(Who wins out)

He who wins
(Once and for all) (together)
Wins it all
Devil take the hindmost

She walks, you leave together (Phantom)
Pockets full, debts paid
She sings, you leave alone
Devil take the hindmost

Oh, my God (Raoul)
What have I done?
Look at me
The concert's only hours away
