So….do we really need it?  After all, we’ve got each other…

GINA

Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

 

SONG:   I MISS MY DRESS                                       GINA and JOEY

 

                                                JOEY

            Why don’t we get outta here                                                                   
            Leave this all behind us                

Take off while the coast is clear

           

JOEY and GINA       

If we’re fast they’ll never find us.    

           

                                                JOEY

            We could take a train tonight                                                                         
                        Hit the road, stay out of sight.     

 

                                                GINA

            I wanna get out and I must confess

That I miss my dress.

 

JOEY and GINA       

We don’t need the money, baby                                     

We don’t need a lot of dough

If you’re here beside me baby

There’s no place I wouldn’t go.

 

                                                GINA

Money never seems to be The measure of success

 

                                                JOEY

            You sure look cute In a fancy suit

 

                                                GINA

            But I miss my dress.

 

Dance Break.

 

                                                 JOEY

            There’s a priest in Waterloo

He was friends with Tony

I’m sure he’d be happy to

Do our wedding ceremony

 

                                                GINA

            We’ll look great, BABe, you and me.

                                               

                                                JOEY

            In front of all our friends and family

           

                                                GINA

            What will I be wearing? –

 

                                                JOEY

            take a guess  

 

JOEY and GINA       

A wedding dress.         

 

We don’t need the money, baby                                                             
            We don’t need a lot of dough

If you’re here beside me baby

There’s no place I wouldn’t go.

 

                                                GINA

            Money never seems to be

The measure of success

 

                                                JOEY

            You sure look cute In a fancy suit

 

                                                GINA

            But I miss that

 

                                                JOEY

            I miss that

 

BOTH            

I miss that dress.
