Mountain Duet Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

This is the one situation I wanted most to avoid
Nothing I say will convince him this isn't a trick.

A drink on a clear moonlit night -- I relax, she smiles
There's something peculiar going on.

So through no thought of my own, I'm stuck her to carry the can
Embarrassed, uncertain, marooned --

Now she can't be working for them -- I mean us --
She seems to know what she is doing -- but where is he?

He has to turn up -- he wanted this meeting, well didn't he?

Maybe he's scared --but he didn't seem scared in the game.

Oh, I just couldn't care less
He can go right ahead, go and wreck his career, I know I've done
my best

Well at least she's a good-looking spy.

What if my Russian friend thinks that my plans
Are more of an intimate kind?
If I don't say something else soon
He'll go -- Maybe I'm on nobody's side!

Listen, I hate to break up the mood
Get to the point, begin the beguine
Haven't you noticed we're a protagonist short
In this idyllic, well-produced scene?

He couldn't wait to join you up here
Maybe he walked, cable cars scare him

Never mind him -- I haven't missed him so far.

Maybe it won't do any harm
To struggle on without his charm
Funny how all at once I feel that he can go jump off the mountain
I won't care

This is the one situation I wanted most to avoid

My dear opponent -- I really can't imagine why

So I am not dangerous then? -- what a shame!

No, you are not dangerous -- who could think that of you?

You -- you are so strange -- why can't you be what you ought to
You should be scheming, intriguing, too clever by half --

I have to hand it to you
For you've managed to make me forget why I ever agreed to this

I don't know why I can't think of anything
I would rather do
Than be wasting my time
On mountains with you.
