about

Notes:
Originally I was calling this Disgustingly Evil Courtship Song (DECS).
The Match is referring to the residency match that happens at the end of medical school training, where you finally get sorted into (hopefully) your chosen specialty, or possibly get booted into a less competitive specialty. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Resident_Matching_Program

lyrics

LUC:
Please let me explain, I'm just a
man and you a goddess

You intoxicate me toward procreation
our heir would be flawless

Trust me any man in my present position
would yearn for commitment entirely

And you're an exceptional specimen
of the ideal we desire, see

I'm all overcome by none other than true love
Baby I swear to you
There's no other reason a man would knock you up
except family values

No more delaying our fairytale my darling
I'm a prince destined for an empire
I need a princess for my castle
You're the logical unbeatable girl I admire

I desire, I'm a-fire


DIANA:
I'm shocked and dismayed that you would invade
my body unsanctioned

I admit I'm unsure of men as a cohort
don't know how to rank them

You say any man in your present position
would yearn for commitment entirely

What's more, you're an insider specimen
saying for once you desire...Me

I'm all overcome by none other than fool love
I ache to believe in you
That babies could bind us together is cruel stuff
I wished for in secret too

DUET (DIANA's part; LUC’s part is same as above):
No more delaying our fairytale my darling
You're a prince destined for an empire
You need a princess for your castle
I'm the logical unbeatable girl you desire

I desire, I'm a-fire

DIANA:
I’ve gotten much farther along
don’t you think we should make it official

LUC:
Diana my final exams have priority
Wait just a little

DIANA:
I’m taking this medical leave,
We agreed it was safer by surgery
My schooling delayed by a year, you’d apply for
employment before me

NARRATOR:
The girl who was a contender, now steps aside
The boy is satisfied
Remaining to do is to choose a convenient moment
to say that the romance is through.


LUC:
I'm all overcome by none other than hindsight
Now that the Match is done
I’ve slaved over grades and delayed fun my whole life
And fatherhood is no fun

I’m sorry honey we all have to make tough choices
I’m a prince destined for an empire
Don’t be so selfish you’ll find someone
else Diana you have strength that will always inspire

I'm inspired

you inspire---

[water splashes]

LUC: Holy.. let me call an ambulance

DIANA: Call it. And get out.
