KODALY: Come with me, Ilona I've missed you so much.

ILONA: Oh, God. No.

KODALY: Without you, Ilona How cold my lonely life has grown Are you happy alone Ilona?

Ilona, My own.

SIPOS: Now that Kodaly is hard at play We'll never get out of here till New Year's Day.

ARPAD & SIPOS: So, Happy New Year!

KODALY: Come with me, Ilona.


KODALY: Come with me, cherie.

Mistletoe I long for someone Please tell me who Like some divine divining rod It points straight to you.

Remember, Ilona Those sunny nights we knew before.

If you'll just say the word Ilona We'll know them Once more.

ARPAD: If it was only up to me Guess who I would hang upon the Christmas tree SIPOS: This is where I came in, Amen The fox and the chicken are a team again.
