RAOUL: Miss Giry! He's not Mephistopheles you know. When it comes down to it he's just another circus freak. I'm not afraid of him. ...No, it can't be...
PHANTOM: Not afraid of me, you say?
RAOUL: Stay back or I'll kill you, I promise you.
PHANTOM: Insolent boy! You think you own more of her soul than I do?
RAOUL: She is my wife. Your music may speak to her, but her heart will always follow me.
PHANTOM: You think so? You really think so? Follow you, with all your... charms?

Look at you, deep in dept
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
RAOUL: Let her choose
PHANTOM: Is she yours or mine?
RAOUL: Draw the line
PHANTOM: If she sings you lose tonight
RAOUL: I won't lose
PHANTOM: You leave from here
RAOUL: Fine
PHANTOM: Disappear
RAOUL: Fine! And if she won't, if I win?
PHANTOM: All your debts, wiped away
RAOUL: Very well, let's begin
BOTH: Devil take the hindmost

RAOUL: You think you have the odds, you think you're in control
You think you've fixed the dice, well I will gladly roll
I'll bet against the house, I'll even double down
PHANTOM: Our old game, it's been changed
Every throw, riskier
All the rules, rearranged
Fate has redesigned most

RAOUL: Fortune's on my side
I won her long ago! I won her from you then
I wager even now I'll win her back again
And when the game is done
PHANTOM: Cut the deck, let us play
You and I, once again
In the end, either way!
BOTH: Devil take the hindmost!

Now Christine shall choose at last
Is she yours or mine?
RAOUL: We've a son, our bond's secure
PHANTOM: Are you sure?
RAOUL: What?
PHANTOM: Are you so sure?
RAOUL: What do you mean?
PHANTOM: Such a child, strange to see
Talented, musical
Is he more you or me?
Which one do you find most?

RAOUL: You lie! No woman could or ever would
Love such a man, you're insane
So now I play for my wife
PHANTOM: Yet you won't doubt your wife
Doubt your son, everything
Now we play for your life
BOTH: Devil take the hindmost

PHANTOM: Deal the cards, let them fall
Choose your hand, try your best
He who wins
RAOUL: I call your bluff, the game is on
And we will see who wins out
Once and for all
BOTH: Wins it all
Devil take the hindmost

PHANTOM: She walks, you leave together
Pockets full, debts paid.
She sings, you leave alone.
Devil take the hindmost
RAOUL: My God. What have I done? I could lose her forever. My Christine!
