Chess (Complete Cast Album) - Commie Newspapers lyrics

COMPUTER
Knight to D-5.

FREDDIE
Bishop A-5, check.

FLORENCE
Well we can't complain
That you've ignored by the press.

FREDDIE
What they say! What 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.

Here we are, the Times:

"You thrive
On unpleasantness."

FLORENCE (In French)
"Le Monde: Freddie Trumper, La Honte des écheques."

FREDDIE
I don'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)
"Dishturn, de grosse skandal de schack." (transliteration)

FREDDIE
Hey look, here's some piece that
Some idiot's done on you.

"Florence Vassy: petite, Hungarian-born Englishwoman."

"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?
