Andre
Your public needs you

Firmin
We need you too

Carlotta
Wouldn't you rather have your precious little ingenue?

Andre & Firmin
Signora no! The World wants you
Prima Donna first lady of the stage
Your devotees are on their knees to implore you

Andre
Can you bow out when they're shouting your name?

Firmin
Think of how they all adore you

Andre & Firmin
Prima donna enchant us once again

Andre
Think of your muse

Firmin
And all your queues 'round the theatre!

Andre & Firmin
Can you deny us the triumph in store?

Andre, Firmin & Piangi
Sing Prima Donna once more

Raoul
Christine spoke of an angel

Charlotta
Prima Donna your song shall live again

Andre & Firmin
Think of your public

Carlotta
You took a snub but there's a public who needs you

Madame Giry
She has heard the voice of the Angel of Music

Andre & Firmin
Those who hear you liken you to an angel

Carlotta
Think of the cry of undying support

Andre
We get her Opera

Firmin
She gets her limelight

Carlotta
Follow where the lime light leads you

Andre & Firmin
Leading ladies are a trial

Carlotta
Prima Donna your song shall never die
You'll sing again and to unending ovation

Raoul
Order, warnings lunatic!

Andre & Firmin
This misacating will invite damnation
Lunatic demands are regular occurences

Carlotta
Think how you'll sing in that final encore

Andre & Firmin
Sing Prima Donna once more

Raoul
I must see these demands are rejected

Andre & Firmin
Who'd believe a diva happy to relieve
A chorus girl whose gone and slept with the patron?
Raoul and the soubrette, entwined in love's duet!
Although he may demur, he must have been with her!

Carlotta
Fortunata!
Non ancor abbandonata!

Andre & Firmin
You'd never get away with all this in a play,
But if it's loudly sung and in a foreign tongue
It's just the sort of story audiences adore, in fact a perfect opera!

Meg & Christine
For if his curse is on this Opera

All
Prima Donna the world is at your feet
A nation waits, and how it hates to be cheated!
Light Up the stage with that age-old rapport,
Sing Prima Donna
Once more!

Phantom
So, it is to be war between us. If these demands are not met, a disaster beyond imagination will occur!

All
Once more!
