Haunted by her dream, Vivian decides to return to Boston. Lucy intervenes and they discuss the virtues of their chosen lifestyles.

lyrics

SONG: I’LL TAKE PERFUME

I like fresh air! (Lucy)
I'll take perfume! (Vivian)
I like the outdoors! (Lucy)
I prefer my own room. (Vivian)

I can eat when I want! (Lucy)
I like meals served at eight! (Vivian)
Fish fried in a pan! (Lucy)
Pate on a gold plate! (Vivian)

Chorus: (Sung together)
I'm quite happy to live just the way that I do ---
So why would I want to trade places with you?
Why would I want to trade places with you?

I sleep under the stars! (Lucy)
Oh, my canopy bed! (Vivian)
My quilt keeps me warm ---(Lucy)
I like satins instead! (Vivian)

I live all on my own. (Lucy)
Butlers come when I call! (Vivian)
I can fend for myself! (Lucy)
I let them do it all! (Vivian)

Chorus

Give me sunsets and rainbows. (Lucy)
Just get me off of this boat! (Vivian)
I like cold frosty mornings ---(Lucy)
I want my mink coat! (Vivian)

I can trap you a mink. (Lucy)
A mink is NOT a fur coat! (Vivian)
Learn to skin it yourself ! (Lucy)
Stop!! I'm leaving this boat! (Vivian)

But you can make your own coat! (Lucy)
What I need I shall buy --- (Vivian)
Well, not here on this river! (Lucy)
And that's one more reason why --- (Vivian)

Chorus
