Lyrics (Tevye:)
DO YOU LOVE ME?
(Golde:)
DO I WHAT?
(Tevye:)
DO YOU LOVE ME?
(Golde:)
DO I LOVE YOU?!
WITH OUR DAUGHTERS
GETTING MARRIED
AND THIS TROUBLE
IN THE TOWN,
YOU'RE UPSET,
YOU'RE WORN OUT,
GO INSIDE,
GO LIE DOWN.
MAYBE
IT'S INDIGESTION.
(Tevye - spoken):
GOLDE,
I'M ASKING YOU
A QUESTION
(sung):
DO YOU LOVE ME?
(Golde:)
YOU'RE A FOOL!
(Tevye - spoken):
I KNOW --
(sung):
BUT DO YOU LOVE ME?
(Golde:)
DO I LOVE YOU?
(Tevye - spoken):
WELL?
(Golde - sung):
FOR TWENTY-FIVE YEARS
I'VE WASHED YOUR CLOTHES,
COOKED YOUR MEALS,
CLEANED YOUR HOUSE,
GIVEN YOU CHILDREN,
MILKED THE COW.
AFTER TWENTY-FIVE YEARS,
WHY TALK ABOUT LOVE
RIGHT NOW?
(Tevye - spoken):
GOLDE,
(sung):
THE FIRST TIME I MET YOU
WAS ON OUR WEDDING DAY.
I WAS SCARED.
(Golde:)
I WAS SHY.
(Tevye:)
I WAS NERVOUS.
(Golde:)
SO WAS I.
(Tevye:)
BUT MY FATHER
AND MY MOTHER
SAID WE'D LEARN
TO LOVE EACH OTHER,
AND NOW I'M ASKING,
(spoken):
GOLDE,
(sung):
DO YOU LOVE ME?
(Golde:)
I'M YOUR WIFE.
(Tevye - spoken):
I KNOW,
(sung):
BUT DO YOU LOVE ME?
(Golde:)
DO I LOVE HIM?
(Tevye - spoken):
WELL?
(Golde - sung):
FOR TWENTY-FIVE YEARS
I'VE LIVED WITH HIM,
FOUGHT WITH HIM,
STARVED WITH HIM,
TWENTY-FIVE YEARS
MY BED IS HIS.
IF THAT'S NOT LOVE,
WHAT IS?
(Tevye:)
THEN YOU LOVE ME?
(Golde:)
I SUPPOSE I DO.
(Tevye:)
AND I SUPPOSE I LOVE YOU TOO.
(both:)
IT DOESN'T
CHANGE A THING,
BUT EVEN SO,
AFTER TWENTY-FIVE YEARS
IT'S NICE TO KNOW.
