(Night March 17th, Sunday, in South Bend)
(Cupid shoots Faust and the Peasants notice)

Chorus of South Bend peasants: When love is in the air
It may strike swiftly
Like a bolt out of the blue
One never knows whom it might fall on
Maybe me, maybe you
Maybe me, maybe you ...

Faust: I love you
Those words sound strange in my ear
I've never said them before to anyone
I love you
Now I know I'll always love you
That must sound crazy to you
But girl, I love you
If you knew how lonely I have been
How cold and how lonely my life has been
I need the warm touch
Of someone who loves me like I love you
I love you and I don't know your name

Margaret (speaking): It's Margaret.

Faust: Margaret, do you love me?

Margaret: No

Faust: What was that?

Margaret: No

Faust: What was that you just said?

Margaret: No, I don't love you
I don't know you
I don't love you

Faust: You little bitch
You whore
The first person I ever love and they don't love me?
Unbelievable!

Forgive me, I didn't know what I was saying

South Bend Chorus: Forgive him

Chorus from above: Forgive him

Margaret: I forgive you

South Bend Chorus: When love is in the air
It may strike swiftly
Like a bolt out of the blue
One never knows whom it might fall on
Maybe me, maybe me maybe you, maybe you
Maybe you
