【GIRLS】
Is there a man out there?
Someone to hear my prayer?
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight
Won't somebody help me
Chase the shadows away?
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight
Take me through the darkness
To the break of the day
【SOPHIE】
Sorry to drag you away
【SAM】
Thank God you did, this used to be a
quiet wee island.
【SOPHIE】
Regretting you stayed away so long?
【SAM】
No, I'm regretting I never knew what
was here.
【SOPHIE】
What?
【SAM】
This place - the Taverna. I always
meant to come back and build it
some day, but - she beat me to it
【SOPHIE】
Do you prefer buildings to people?
【SAM】
What?!
【SOPHIE】
Tell me something about my mum.
【SAM】
Your mum was irresistible, a one-off.
We talked and we fought - you know
it was me that brought her to this
island?
【SOPHIE】
That wasn't the only thing you did,
was it?
【SAM】
Oh right, what has she told you?
【SOPHIE】
Nothing. She's never mentioned you.
【SAM】
But you said‘Mum's always talking
about her friends from the old days'.
What's going on? Sophie, why am
I here?
【GIRLS】
Is there a man out there?
Someone to hear my prayer?
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight
Won't somebody help me
Chase the shadows away?
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight
Take me through the darkness
To the break of the day
【HARRY】
Fancy Donna with a grown-up
daughter!
【SOPHIE】
Have you got any children, Harry?
【HARRY】
No. I haven't put myself in the path
of paternity.
【SOPHIE】
It's never too late.
【HARRY】
I don't think my other half would
agree.
【SOPHIE】
Oh - you don't want children?
【HARRY】
No, no, it's not that. It's just that...
...well, I'd have liked a daughter.
I'd have spoiled her to bits.
【SOPHIE】
Lucky thing.
【HARRY】
Is your dad here?
【SOPHIE】
I don't know.
【HARRY】
What?
【SOPHIE】
I don't know who my dad is.
【GIRLS】
Is there a man out there?
Someone to hear my prayer?
【BILL】
Can I be nosey, I'm a writer so it
goes with the territory.
【SOPHIE】
Go on.
【BILL】
How did your mother get this place?
When I knew her she was singing in
a night-club on the mainland.
【SOPHIE】
She was left some money, in a will.
We lived with an old lady when I was
little. Her name was Sophia.
【BILL】
What, my Great-Aunt Sophia?
【SOPHIE】
I think it must be.
【BILL】
But... I always heard her money
went to... family...
Wait a minute - how old are you?
【SOPHIE】
Twenty.
【GIRLS】
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight
Won't somebody help me
Chase the shadows away?
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight
Take me through the darkness
To the break of the day
