MARRIED
Herr Schultz: YOU HESITATE BECAUSE YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN MARRIED. IT FRIGHTENS YOU. BELIEVE ME, IT CAN WORK WONDERS.
HOW THE WORLD WILL CHANGE, IT WILL CHANGE LIKE THAT, DUE TO ONE LITTLE WORD, MARRIED. SEE A PALACE RISE, FROM A TWO ROOM FLAT, DUE TO ONE LITTLE WORD, MARRIED. AND THE OLD DESPAIR, THAT WAS OFTEN THERE, SUDDENLY CEASES TO BE. FOR YOU WAKE ONE DAY, LOOK AROUND AND SAY "SOMEBODY WONDERFUL MARRIED ME."
Fraulein Schneider: YOU DON'T THINK IT WOULD BE BETTER TO SIMPLY GO ON AS BEFORE?
Schultz: NO.
Fraulein Kost: O WIE WUNDERBAR,
NICHTS IST SO WIE-ES-WAR,
DURCH EIN WINZIGES WORT;
“HEIRAT.”
AUS DEM ERDGESCHOSS
WIRD EIN MARCHENSCHLOSS
DURCHEIN WINZIGES WORT;
“HEIRAT.”
UND DAS GRAU IN GRAU
WIRD AUF EINMAL BLAU,
WIE NOCH KEINBLAU JEMALS WAR,
UND DANN STEHT MAN DA,
SAGT BESELIGT ‘JA,
HEUT’ WIRD MEIN TRAUM
NICHT SO GRAU IN GRAU.’
AH! WIE WUNDERBAR,
NICHTS IST SO WIE-ES-WAR,
DURCH EIN WINZIGES WORT;
“HEIRAT.”

They sing together:
Kost: UND DAS GRAU IN GRAU
WIRD AUF EINMAL BLAU,
HEUT NACHT MEIN TRAUM JEMALS WAR
Schultz: AND THE OLD DESPAIR THAT WAS OFTEN THERE, SUDDENLY CEASES TO BE.

Schultz & Schneider: FOR YOU WAKE ONE DAY, LOOK AROUND AND SAY
Schultz: SOMEBODY WONDERFUL
Schneider: SOMEBODY WONDERFUL
Both: MARRIED ME.
