Don't Look at Me [From Follies]
Now, folks, we bring you Di-rect from Phoenix, Live and in person. Sally Durant! Here she is at last, Twinkle in her eye, Hot off the press. Strictly a mess, Nevertheless... (smiling nervously) Hi, Ben... (before he can respond) No, don't look at me- Please, not just yet. Why am I here? This it crazy! No, don't look at me- I know that face. You're trying to place The name... Say something, Ben, anything. No, don't talk to me. Ben, I forget; What were we like? It's so hazy! Look at these people. Aren't they eerie? Look at this party. Isn't it dreary? I'm so glad I came. BEN: Can I look now? (She nods, smiling nervously) Yes, it's possible You might be Sally. Did you fall asleep at Toscanini broadcasts? (She nods.) Did you eat Baby Ruths for breakfast? SALLY: I still do sometimes. Oh, Ben, you're just the way I knew you'd be. You make me feel like I was nineteen and the four of us were going on the town. BOTH: So- I just look at us... SALLY: Fat... BEN: Turning gray... BOTH: Still playing games, Acting crazy. SALLY Isn't it awful? BEN: God. how depressing- BOTH: Me, I'm a hundred. You, you're a blessing- I'm so glad I came!
