"Dee's lyrics for Petula's music fit like a glove. They are so artistically attuned to each other that you feel a mutual lyricism and dramatic sense coming through each song." 

- Paul Bateman

I've Had Enough
(Dee Shipman / Petula Clark)

SANDRINE
I've had enough!
I've had enough!
I can't take any more of this!
I can't take any more of you!

ZOLA
Of what? Let me explain………!
Sandrine:
Oh, crawl and bluster ‘til you’re blue....!.
I've had enough!

ZOLA
But Sandrine...

SANDRINE
No!
I'm up to here!
I'm up to here!
For you continue to pursue
A girl who's barely out of school
Which of us looks the bigger fool?
I've had enough!

ZOLA
You know I need you...

SANDRINE
And what of Jeanne?

ZOLA
I need her too...

SANDRINE
Can you believe the man?
Emile, you live in a fantasy.........!
That isn't life
You're mad! 
You need a keeper not a wife!

ZOLA
No, that's enough!
I've heard enough!
Let's drop it 'til the shouting's through
You're shriller than a scalded cat
I can't take anymore of that.......!

SANDRINE
Oh really...

ZOLA
I've had enough!

SANDRINE
YOU'VE had enough?!

ZOLA 
Yes

SANDRINE
Well I'm up to here!

ZOLA
What do you mean?

SANDRINE
I'm up to here!

ZOLA
Sandrine, my dear

SANDRINE
Don't I deserve a better fate
Than being on walked on like a mat?
Discarded like last season's hat!

ZOLA
Discarded?

SANDRINE
Yes!
I've had enough!

ZOLA
That's ridiculous……..!
I'll never leave you

SANDRINE
Then what of Jeanne?

ZOLA
I'll keep her too

SANDRINE
And you believe you can?

ZOLA 
Of course

SANDRINE
You'll have to choose!

ZOLA
Oh no

SANDRINE
She'll make you choose!

ZOLA
She won't

SANDRINE
The girl will feel the same as me
And even though you say you'll care
We neither one of us will share
You'll have to choose...

ZOLA
I can’t…..!

SANDRINE
You have no choice
Except to choose
I've had enough...

ZOLA
Sandrine, I love you...!

SANDRINE
You LOVE me…….? No!
It's not enough!! 

 

It's Not Enough
(Dee Shipman / Petula Clark)

ZOLA
It's not enough
To have enough
When you remember early years
Of being desperately poor
You never really feel secure
Or have enough

It's always there
It's always there
The sense of what it means to fail
That drives a person to succeed
So when you have all that you need
It's not enough.
Maybe it’s selfish
But Lord above
If I am selfish
It’s born of love
Is it enough
To care enough?
Why is it always such a fight
I only want to make things right 
That’s who I am, and why I write..! 
For those I love…….
It’s who I am, it’s what I do………!
But even so.
Is it enough…?
