Buffy - Once More With Feeling (OST) - I'll Never Tell

English

I'll Never Tell

ANYA:
This is the man that I plan to entangle
Isn’t he fine?
My claim to fame was to maim and to mangle
Vengeance was mine1
 
But I'm out of the biz
The name I made I’ll trade for his
The only trouble is…
I’ll never tell
 
XANDER:
She is the one, she’s such wonderful fun
Such passion and grace
Warm in the night when I’m right in her tight
Embrace, tight embrace
 
I’ll never let her go
The love we’ve known can only grow
There’s just one thing that... no
I’ll never tell
 
XANDER/ANYA:
‘Cause there’s nothing to tell
 
ANYA:
He snores
 
XANDER:
She wheezes
 
ANYA:
Say "housework" and he freezes
 
XANDER:
She eats these skeezy cheeses that I can’t describe
 
ANYA:
I talk - he breezes
 
XANDER:
She doesn’t know what "please" is
 
ANYA:
His penis got diseases from a Chumash tribe
 
XANDER/ANYA:
The vibe gets kind of scary
 
XANDER:
Like, she thinks I’m ordinary
 
ANYA:
Like, it’s all just temporary
 
XANDER:
Like, her toes are kind of hairy
 
XANDER/ANYA:
But it's all very well
‘Cause God knows I’ll never tell
 
ANYA:
When things get rough, he
Just hides behind his Buffy
Now look, he’s getting huffy
‘Cause he knows that I know
 
XANDER:
She clings, she’s needy
She’s also really greedy
She never -
 
ANYA:
- His eyes are beady!
 
XANDER:
This is my verse, hello
She -
 
ANYA:
Look at me! I’m dancin’ crazy!
 
XANDER/ANYA:
You know
 
XANDER:
You’re quite the charmer
 
ANYA:
My knight in armor
 
XANDER:
You’re the cutest of the Scoobies2
With your lips as red as rubies
And your firm yet supple - tight embrace3
 
ANYA:
He’s swell
 
XANDER:
She’s sweller
 
ANYA:
He’ll always be my feller
 
XANDER:
That’s why I’ll never tell her that I’m petrified
 
ANYA:
I’ve read this tale, there’s wedding then betrayal
I know that come the day I’ll want to run and hide
 
XANDER/ANYA:
I lied, I said it’s easy
I’ve tried, but there’s these fears I can't quell
 
XANDER:
Is she looking for a pot of gold?
 
ANYA:
Will I look good when I’ve gotten old?
 
XANDER:
Will our lives become too stressful if I’m never that successful?
 
ANYA:
Will I get so worn and wrinkly that I look like David Brinkley?4
 
XANDER:
Am I crazy?
 
ANYA:
Am I dreaming?
 
XANDER:
Am I marrying a demon?
 
XANDER, ANYA:
We can really raise the beam in making marriage a hell5
So thank God, I’ll never tell
I swear that I’ll never tell
 
XANDER:
My lips are sealed
 
ANYA:
I take the Fifth6
 
XANDER:
Nothing to see, move it along
 
XANDER/ANYA:
I’ll never tell
 
  • 1. Anya used to be a vengeance demon.
  • 2. The "Scooby Gang" is the name the protagonists of "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" are known as.
  • 3. Xander obviously wanted to sing "boobies" but corrected himself.
  • 4. US newscaster. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Brinkley
  • 5. Though not an idiom, "raise the beam" refers to (the final act of) building a house. Thus this line means "We could doom this marriage from the start by building it upon openly confessing our doubts".
  • 6. The Fifth Amendment to the US Constitution, codifying the right to remain silent.
