Henry Jekyll sings to his comatose father in an asylum.
View Lyrics
JEKYLL Lost in the darkness, Silence surrounds you. Once there was morning, Now endless night.
If I could reach you, I'd guide you and teach you To walk from the darkness Back into the light.
Deep in your silence, Please try to hear me; I'll keep you near me Till night passes by.
I will find the answer. I'll never desert you-- I promise you this-- Till the day that I die...

All you preachers Who delight in panning the dancing teachers, Let me tell you there are a lot of features Of the dance that carry you through The gates of Hea-ven.

It's madness To be always sitting around in sadness, When you could be learning the steps of gladness. You'll be happy when you can do Just six or seven;

Begin to day! You'll find it nice, The quickest way to paradise. When you practice, Here's the thing to do, Simply say as you go...

I'll build a stairway to Paradise With a new step ev'ry day! I'm gonna get there at any price; Stand aside, I'm on my way! I've got the blues And up above it's so fair. Shoes! Go on and carry me there! I'll build a stairway to Paradise With a new step every day.

Beau and Mame choose to extend their honeymoon.
View Lyrics
Loving you is snow and jasmine
And the the noise of New Year's Eve. Loving you is now and yesterday; Is real and make believe.
Loving you is rain and winter wind
And gazin' at the lazy summer skies. Fireworks reflectin' in your eyes:
Foolish, and improbable, and wise.
And loving you is tart as lemonade
And sweet as April wine. Loving you is
Watchin' all the lovely things in life combined.
In your arms I'm all I wish I were: I'm brave, I'm strong, and I'm true, As long as I can go on livin' loving you.

In your arms, I'm all I wish I were: I'm brave, I'm strong, and I'm true, As long as I can go on living' loving you.

Although Mabel is developing feelings for Mack, Mack has no time for love.
View Lyrics
I won't send roses Or hold the door I won't remember Which dress you wore
My heart is too much in control The lack of romance in my soul Will turn you grey, kid So stay away, kid
Forget my shoulder When you're in need Forgetting birthdays Is guaranteed And should I love you, you would be The last to know I won't send roses And roses suit you so
My pace is frantic My temper's cross With words romantic I'm at a loss
I'd be the first one to agree That I'm preoccupied with me And it's inbred, kid So keep your head, kid
In me you'll find things Like guts and nerve But not the kind things That you deserve And so while there's a fighting chance Just turn and go I won't send roses And roses suit you so.

Love is beautiful, love is swell Love is as sweet as a nut Love is grander than tongue can tell Love is remarkable but
Look at what it did to Romeo It dealt poor Romey an awful blow If love could do that to Romeo What chance have I with love?

Look at what it did to Anthony It made a "mark" out of Anthony If love could do that to Anthony What chance have I with love?

Look at what it did to Samson 'Til he lost his hair he was brave If a haircut could weaken Samson They could murder me with a shave

Louie Number Fifteen, King of France They say he suffered with each romance If love kicked him in the royal pants What chance have I An ordinary guy What chance have I with love?

Look at what it did to Adam From that bite he could not escape If an apple could finish Adam They could knock me off with a grape

Miss Lucrezia Borgia, deep in sin She poisoned her lovers when they dropped in If they wound up with a Mickey Finn What chance have I An ordinary guy What chance have I with love?

Look what love did for Reno It put Reno on the map When a woman goes to Reno It's because some man is a sap

Tommy Manville's love is not returned He sells asbestos and he has learned That with asbestos he still gets burned What chance have I An ordinary guy What chance have I with love?

Professor Bhaer writes to Jo about his life in New York.
View Lyrics
PROFESSOR BHAER (reads from a letter, spoken): 'And how are you, sir?'

(Sung) She asks how I am. And so: how am I? My days are the usual days. I wake up, I go out. Time goes by.

My days are exactly the days I have lived since arriving here. In fact, how I am is amazed how this comforts me year by year. I work and I eat. Life is muffins and jam. The house is nice and quiet now. That is how I am.

Five years in these rooms reading Hegel and Kant. My mind is devoted to thoughts of the meaning of life. What more could I want? So why is it lately I find I'm uneasy all through the night? And why even now does my skin feel explosive as dynamite? Why does my heart pound like a battering ram? How can she ask me how I am? How I am is fine!

(Begins to write a letter back) 'Dear Miss March, there is nothing dramatic or new to report. This will be short. Morning and evening I live in my usual way. On the day you return you will see for yourself! Tell me, Miss March, are you happy so far From the clang and the beat of our turbulent street? Quite often I think of our days in New York. Though of course since you went I have quite content.'

(Rips the letter up) ACH! I wake up in the morning and all that I hear is the absence of sound. YES! My peace is disturbed but the ruckus is me as my thought run aground. I wanted a life by myself in these rooms. But now all around me another life looms. Who asked her to come and go and to leave me like that? And now she expects me to send her a note? With words, if I spoke, that would stick in my throat! Who asked her to change how I live, how I think, how I am?

She asks how I am. How can I reply? I go through my daily routine. I give lessons, I wait. Time goes by.

Yet lately I find there is pleasure in humming a silly tune. And some days I go to the park and I sit there all afternoon. Some evenings I swear I can hear a door slam. The house is far to quiet now. That is how I am.

A waiter, who notices that Aaron and Casey are not having a good time, performs a rousing crowdpleaser to lighten the mood.
View Lyrics
WAITER I've made my career as a waiter And my job, well, it never gets old I've seen romances bloom Wild affairs meet their doom Every night, some new sight to behold

Yet I find, as I wait on my tables And serve them their baskets of bread I can't help but think As they pick out a drink Of what I would order instead...

I'd order love Delicious, well-seasoned and rare I'd order love A big enough portion to share Bring me all of the heartache A small side of woe That flavor of longing That I long to know I don't need a menu Just someone to care for my heart Yes, I'd order love There's no better dish to start

I'd order love That's spicy and steaming and hot Oh, I'd order love So juicy - it hits the spot I crave nights full of passion All drizzled with lust Breakfast in bed Is an absolute must Then bring on the marriage But don't top it off with divorce Yes, I'd order love It's the very best second course

I'm tired of always observing Loving couples, all dreamy and sweet For years, I've been patiently waiting When's it gonna be my time to eat? This lack of attention's unnerving I fear that I'm losing my grip

If cupid keeps up this substandard service I'm screwing him out of his tip! He don't get no tip! Big finish!

I'd order love Appetizer, main course and dessert - ball change! Yes, I'd order love Even if it was peppered with hurt 'Cause at least I could savor The way that it feels To not eat alone For each one of my meals

There's a lot on the menu - I'd have something else if I could But I'd order love 'Cause there's nothing else earth That tastes so good! Mmm, it tastes so good Oh so very good So good, so good

Eileen assures Bob that he has feelings for Ruth.
View Lyrics
It's love, it's love, Well who would have thought it! If this is love, Then why have I fought it?

What a way to feel, I could touch the sky; What a way to feel, I have found my guy!

It's love at last, I've someone to cheer for; It's love at last, I've learned what we're here for!

I've heard it said You'll know it when you see it; Well, I see it, I know it, It's love!

It's love, it's love, Well who would have thought it! If this is love, Then why have I fought it?

What a way to feel, I could touch the sky; What a way to feel, I have found my guy!

It's love at last, I've someone to cheer for; It's love at last, I've learned what we're here for!

I've heard it said You'll know it when you see it; Well, I see it, I know it, I feel it, It's love!

Barnum refuses Charity's urging to work at a nearby factory.
View Lyrics
The colors of my life,
Are bountiful and bold The purple glow of indigo,
The gleam of green and gold The splendor of a sunrise,
The dazzle of a flame
The glory of a rainbow,
I put 'em all to shame No quiet browns or grays,
I'll take my days instead And fill them 'til they overflow,
With rose and cherry red
And should this sunlit world,
Grow dark one day The colors of my life
Will leave a shining light to show the way
No quiet browns or grays,
I'll take my days instead And fill them 'til they overflow,
With rose and cherry red
And should this sunlit world,
Grow dark one day The colors of my life
Will leave a shining light to show the way

Who can I turn to When nobody needs me My heart wants to know And so I must go Where destiny leads me
With no star to guide me And no one beside me I'll go on my way And after the day That darkness will hide me
And maybe tomorrow I'll find what I'm after I'll throw off my sorrow Beg, steal, or borrow My share of laughter
With you I could learn to With you on a new day But who can I turn to If you turn away
With no star to guide me And no one beside me I'll go on my way And after the day That darkness will hide me
And maybe tomorrow I'll find what I'm after I'll throw off my sorrow Beg, steal, or borrow My share of laughter
With you I could learn to With you on a new day But who can I turn to If you turn away
And maybe tomorrow I'll find what I'm after I'll throw off my sorrow Beg, steal, or borrow My share of laughter
With you I could learn to With you on a new day But who can I turn to If you turn away

Johnny falls in love with Molly, and promises to grant her every wish.
View Lyrics

I'll never say no to you, Whatever you say or do, If you ask me to wait for a lifetime. You know I'll gladly wait For a lifetime or two

Just to look at you. I'll smile, when you say "Be Glad," I'll weep if you want me sad. Today is tomorrow If you want it so. I'll stay or I'll go, But I'll never say no...

When Will is upset that his dad Edward has to travel for work, Edward tells him to be brave.
View Lyrics
I've never been a man who lived an office life I've never been a man behind a desk I've always been a man who said that staying still was playing dead The kind who's looking forward to the challenges ahead

People say that's irresponsible People tell me stay at home But I'm not made for things like mowing lawns or apron strings I'm my best, when not at rest

So I fight the dragons and I storm the castles And I win a battle or two Then comes the day it's time, I'm packing up and I am bringing all my stories home to you

All I can see is miles ahead with miles to go All I can feel is wind and sun and sky Stop for a coffee, make a friend, and pray the day will never end 'Cause there's one more adventure waiting 'round another bend

Where I fight the dragons and I storm the castles And I win a battle or two But then a feeling comes Like fifty thousand drums all banging, "Bring my stories home to you"

And I wonder as I wander on the road from door to door Exactly what you think of where I've been

Do you know I joined the circus, met a mermaid, fought a war? Do you know I think of you through thick and thin? Because even though I'm making deals and bringin' people joy I'm usually only thinking of my boy

Out there on the road I pray You'll come to my one day And say, "Let's fight the dragons and then storm the castles 'til we win what needs to be won" So when I'm old and tired, you'll do the job required You'll be there telling stories to your son

And we fight the dragons and we storm the castles And I do the best that I can For everybody knows that's how the story goes To turn each boy into a bigger man

So I'll fight the dragons 'til you can

It's not where you start, it's where you finish. It's not how you go, it's how you land. A hundred to one shot, you call him a klutz Can out-run the favorite, all he needs is the guts. Your final return will not diminish And you can be the cream of the crop; It's not where you start, it's where you finish, And you're gonna finish on top.

If you start at the top, you're certain to drop, You've got to watch your timing; Better begin by climbing up, up, up the ladder. If you're going to last you can't make it fast, man, Nobody starts a winner, give me a slow beginner, Easy does it, conserve your fine endurance; Easy does it, for that's your life insurance. While you are young,take it rung after rung after rung.

It's not where you start, it's where you finish. It's not how you go, it's how you land. A hundred to one shot, they call him a klutz Can out-run the favorite, all he needs is the guts. Your final return will not diminish And you can be the cream of the crop; It's not where you start, it's where you finish, And you're gonna finish on top.

GEORGE Other pleasures... And I've known many... Afternoons In warm Venetian squares, Brief encounters, Long siestas... Pleasures old and new Can't compare with you.
You amaze me! Where did you come from? You do things Champagne could never do. Crystal winters, Crimson summers... Other pleasures -- I would trade them all For you.
Pleasures old and new Can't compare with you... Wild mimosa,... The scent of evening... Shuttered rooms With sunlight breaking through... Crazy soirees... Lazy Sundays... Other pleasures... I would trade them all For you.
Sailing off In the night On a silver lake... Taking more From this life Thank I ought to take... Other pleasures... I would trade them all For you.

She is soft, she is fair She’s my love She is song, she is prayer She’s my love Though I reach, though I try She is braver than I And is far less of earth than she is of sky

Mendel makes a clumsy and offbeat marriage proposal to Trina.
View Lyrics
JASON (spoken)
This is how you make a marriage proposal.

MENDEL I love you dear. I think you're swell. You're never near me close enough to tell If I'm delightful or not.

I need your wrist. I praise your thigh. There's not a guy, There's not a piece of paper, There's not a man in pants Who could love you the same as I!

Oftentimes, lovers are crazy people. Sometimes they kill each other. Just like a biblical brother Did to his biblical brother Back in biblical times.

TRINA Biblical times?

MARVIN Biblical times?

MENDEL Uh, biblical times.

Oh, those' biblical times! I love your eyes. I love your face. I want you by my side to take my place If I get sick or detained.

Don't brush your hair, you?re perfect. Don't start to cry. There's not a guy, There's not a horse or zebra, There's not a giant man Who could love you the same as I!

Forget that giant man, He won't love you the same as I! I'm not a giant man, But I'll love you until, Love you until, I die!

Chauvelin tries to get Marguerite to remember their passion for each other and the Revolution.
View Lyrics
I remember days full of restlessness and fury I remember nights that were drunk on dreams I remember someone who hungered for the glory I remember her, but it seems she's gone
Where's the girl?
Where's the girl with the blaze in her eyes? Where's the girl with that gaze of surprise? Now and then I still dream she's beside me Where's the girl who could turn on the edge of a knife? Where's the girl who was burning for life? I can still feel her breathing beside me
And I know she remembers how fearless she feels To take off with the wind at her heels She and I took this world like a storm Come again!
Let the girl in your heart tumble free Bring your renegade heart home to me In the dark of the morning, I'll warm you I'll rouse you
Marguerite, don't forget I know who you are We were cut from the same surly star Like two jewels in the sky sharing fire Where's the girl so alive and still aching for more? We had dreams that were worth dying for We were caught in the eye of a storm Come again!
Let the girl in your heart tumble free Bring your renegade heart home to me In the dark of the morning, I'll warm you I'll rouse you
Where's the girl? Is she gazing at me with surprise? Do I still see that blaze in her eyes? Am I dreaming, or is she beside me now?

Matt has a vision for leaving his provincial town.
View Lyrics
Beyond that road lies a shining world.
Beyond that road lies despair.
Beyond that road lies a world that's gleaming. People who are scheming.
Beauty! Hunger! Glory! Sorrow! Never a pain or care. He's liable to find a couple of surprises there.

There's a song he must sing; It's a well-known song. But the tune is bitter And it doesn't take long to learn!

I can learn! That pretty little world that beams so bright. That pretty little world that seems delightful Can burn! Burn! Burn! Let me learn! Let me learn!

For, I can see it! Shining somewhere! Bright lights somewhere invite me to come there And learn! And I'm ready!

I can hear it! Sirens singing! Inside my ear I hear them all singing Come learn!

Who knows, maybe All the visions I can see May be waiting just for me To say take me there, and

Make me see it! Make me feel it! I know it's so I know that it really May be! Let me learn!

I can see it! (He can see it!) Shining somewhere! (Shining somewhere!)

Those lights not only glitter But once there they burn!

I can hear it! (He can hear it!) Sirens singing! (Sirens singings!)

Don't listen close Or maybe you'll never Return!

Who know, maybe All the visions that I (he) sees May be waiting just for me (him) to Say

I can see it! Say Shining somewhere! Say Let me see it! Say Take me there And make me a part of it!

Make me see Those shining sights inside of me! (Make him see it!)

Make me feel Those lights inside Don't lie to me! (Make him feel it!)

I (he) know(s) it's so -- I (he) know(s) that it really may be!

Just what I always waited for! This is what my life's created for!

Let me (him) learn!

View Lyrics
There's no reason in the world Why you should even look at anyone like me; But I'm so glad you did, So very glad you did, Although I don't know what there was to see.
And there's no reason in the world For you to be here now And watch the days go by; But I'm so glad you are, So very glad you are, Although I must admit I don't see why.
For there are wiser men and younger men, I wouldn't blame you if you walked away; But I feel wiser now and younger now And so with all my heart I ask you, "Stay."
For we have so much more to see And so much more to say And so much more to do; I think you ought to know If I never let you go, That I'd have ev'ry reason in the world, You!

For I feel suddenly alive, Aware that I've been touched By something warm and new; I think you ought to know If I never let you go, That I'd have ev'ry reason in the world, You!

Charlie Brown arduously tries to get his kite to fly.
View Lyrics
Little more speed, little more rope, Little more wind, little more hope, Gotta get this stupid kite to fly. Gotta make sure it doesn't snag Doesn't droop, doesn't drag Gotta watch out for ev'ry little- whoops!
Little less speed, little more tack, Little less rise, little more slack, Gotta keep my wits about me now. Gotta make sure it doesn't get the best of me Till I get it in the air somehow.
Millions of little kids do it ev'ry day They make a kite and-"poof"- it's in the sky. Leave it to me to have the one fool kite Who likes to see a little kid cry.
Little less talk, little more skill, Little less luck, little more will, Gotta face this fella eye to eye. Now that I've seen you chasing moles, Climbing trees, digging holes, Catching your string on everything passing by Why not fly?
Wait a minute, What's it doing? It isn't on the ground. It isn't in a tree. It's in the air!
Look at at that. It's caught the breeze now, It's past the trees now With room to spare...
Oh- What a beautiful sight. And I'm not such a clumsy guy. If I really try I can really Fly a ki-

Aaron confesses that he still loves his ex-wife.
View Lyrics
CIOFFI (spoken) You see what I'm saying? The song itself is kind of lackluster. It lacks...

CHRIS (spoken) Yes?

CIOFFI (spoken) Luster.

CHRIS (spoken) I agree. We need a completely new composition, one that's catchier than pink eye. I'll leave you to it.

CIOFFI (spoken) Well, at least now you'll have a few minutes alone with your piano.

AARON (spoken) Alone, yeah.

CIOFFI (spoken) Could I ask, only becauseI've wondered this my entire life-- Which would normally come first, the music or the lyric?

AARON (spoken) Same answer as the chicken or the egg.

CIOFFI (spoken) Ah, so it's the lyric.

AARON (spoken) No. It can start with a note. Which can become a phrase. And then you try hanging words off each branch, like trimming a tree.

CIOFFI Sounds easy enough.

AARON Really? Well don't talk about love Or you'll have to say "fits like a glove" Or "As certain as push comes to shove" You will pine for the woman you're constantly thinking of You see the problem.

CIOFFI (spoken) Dangling participle. So you suggest staying away from love?

AARON At all costs. And don't mention your life Or you'll have to say "cuts like a knife" Or refer to the heartbreak and strife When you find that you're missing your ...

CIOFFI (spoken) Missing?

AARON (spoken) What?

CIOFFI (spoken) You were saying what you miss.

AARON No I meant that, well... I miss the music I miss the song Since she's not with me It comes out wrong

It doesn't matter How hard I try I've lost the music I don't know why

You may have known Before I met her I wrote alone But if you ask me What I prefer I'd say the music I wrote with her

When you're writing a song And you've a partner The room is filled with jokes and chatter She says something You say something She writes a line You play a vamp

But when you're writing a song Without a partner That's a completely different matter No one tells you "That's not funny" No one says "Let's cut that bar" No one makes you better than you are

I can't pretend I miss the music I miss my friend No need to ask me What I prefer I choose the music I wrote with her I liked the music I made with--

GEORGIA (spoken): Aaron, I forgot my lyric. Can you believe it? Me.

AARON Well you're not the lyricist now, you're the star. Georgia, Break a leg.

GEORGIA Thanks. You can finish the song without me?

AARON I'm a one-man band. I miss the music I miss my friend No need to ask me What I prefer I choose the music I wrote with her I loved the music I made with her

DR. MARK Hear my voice where you are Take a train, steal a car, Hop a freight, grab a star, come back to me. Catch a plane, catch a breeze, On your hands, on your knees, Swim or fly, only please, come back to me!

On a mule, in a jet. With your hair in a net. In a towel wringing wet - I don't care, this is where you should be!

From the hills, from the shore, Ride the wind to my door. Turn the highway to dust, Break the law if you must, Move the world, only just come back to me!

Blast your hide, hear me call. Must I fight City Hall? Here and now, damn it all, come back to me! What on Earth must I do? Scream and yell till I'm blue? Curse your soul when will you come back to me?

Have you gone to the moon or the corner saloon, And to wrack and to ruin Mademoiselle, where in Hell can you be?

In a crate, in a trunk, On a horse, on a drunk, In a Rolls or a van... Wrapped in mink or Saran... Any way that you can come back to me! Come back to me! Come back to me!

I don't remember you I don't remember you I don't recall a single thing we used to say or do What dancing in the park What laughter in the dark What smould'ring fireplace that lit your face with every spark
And if I left you once before Somehow I can't recall it anymore That was another girl
You're not at all like her Though for an instance when you touched me
I believed you were But I was wrong this moment is new Because I can't, I wont
I don't remember you
That was another time Another time and place Although you bare a faint resemblance,
You're another face Yes I was wrong This moment is new Because I can't
I wont
I don't remember you

Lieutenant Frank Cioffi confides in Niki, an ingénue, about him being married to his job.
View Lyrics
CIOFFI (spoken)
Detectives have no opening night, Miss Harris. We make our entrance after the curtain has fallen on someone else’s life.

NIKI (spoken) It isn’t wrong to be married to one’s work, is it?

CIOFFI Uh, no. No, not at all. Sometimes it’s no Honeymoon. I love my job I really do And if I say so myself I’m good at it too I catch the bad guys Well, most of the time So it’s a good life A perfectly good life Not exactly sublime

When I’ve finished my work And I crawl into bed I reflect as I turn out the lights That the day that’s to come And the week that’s ahead will be Lunch counter mornings And coffee shop nights

Lunch counter mornings And coffee shop nights

NIKI (spoken) Well, it’s reassuring to have such a dependable schedule, like matinees every Wednesday.

CIOFFI (spoken) Or Brisket and broad beans each Thursday.

NIKI (spoken) With your friends

CIOFFI With, uh, yeah, well… I like my pals The guys on the force We’re not very social They’re all married of course

Sometime we go bowling Or have a few beers So it’s a fine life A perfectly fine like I’d give it two cheers

‘Cuz sometimes I think At the end of the day When I’ve read the last burglar his rights That the life that I lead Is a little bit grey With its lunch counter mornings And coffee shop nights

Lunch counter mornings And coffee shop nights

NIKI (spoken) But your acting roles. Well, don’t they make for a change?

CIOFFI (spoken) Oh, Miss Harris, each year from May 23rd to the 12th of June, When I turn my life over to the Swallow Street Players, that’s more than a vacation for me. It’s an overture of hope. It’s the curtain rising on the greatest joy of my life. (singing) But the rest of the year The life that I lead That’s a little bit grey There are plenty of low days And not many highs Mostly lunch counter mornings And coffee shop nights

CIOFFI (spoken) I don’t mean to sound forward, but might I walk you home?

NIKI (spoken) Oh, I’d be delighted, but you said we’re not allowed to leave.

Toddy, a nightclub performer, boasts about Parisian nightlife.
View Lyrics
Nowhere I know, no matter where I go Seduces men like Paris does, en masse. The streets of Pigalle, the bars of Les Halles, The brass'ries and cafes at Montparnasse.
The cabarets and bistros where the writer or artiste goes Are as much a part of Paris as La Tour Eiffel! The rest'rants for purists The nightclubs for the tourists, We have those in abundance as well!
Paree can be a dangerous affair. She offers far more follies than The Follies Bergeres! For sheer sophistication, plus some higher education, The smarter set can't wait to step this way.
For here at Club "Chez Lui" As you're all about to see, We'll tell you straight why Gay Paree is gay.
Paris by night... Paree la nuit, Seduces us in ways we don't expect to be. She has magic from which ev'n a Houdini can't be free 'Cause Paris by night has mystery That's haunted us and taunted us through history. Shady secrets she is all too aware we long to share.
That's why it is, I guess, we all adore her And hunger to explore her hidden charms. She fools us all because she's so capricious, But nothing's more delicious than to sleep in her arms.
For Paris by night's the only way To realize that all in all it's night time not the day That sets her apart, wins ev'ry heart, And makes all our dreams take flight. There's no dream you can't find in Paris... Paree by night!
That's why it is, I guess, we all adore her And hunger to explore her hidden charms She fools us all because she's so capricious But nothing's more delicious than to sleep in her arms
But Paris by night you can't condemn; They say she's really at her best from two to six a.m.! C'est vrais, she's sublime! Nighttime's the time When all of our dreams take flight There's no dream you can't find in Paris, Paree by night!

Sir and Cocky bask in the joys in living in the “driver’s seat” of life.
View Lyrics
The second I saw it, I knew. I said to myself: "Aha!" I could tell at a glance That it wasn't by chance That we happened to be where we are.

From the moment I woke with the lark, We were both of us singing away, And the sky was so blue I instinctively knew We were in for a wonderful day.

As I told you before When I saw what I saw, I was terribly tempted to say:

On a wonderful day like today, I defy any cloud to appear in the sky, Dare any raindrop to plop in my eye On a wonderful day like today.

On a wonderful morning like this When the sun is as big as a yellow balloon; Even the sparrows are signing in tune On a wonderful morning like this.

On a morning like this I could kiss ev'rybody, I'm so full of love and good will. Let me say furthermore, I'd adore ev'rybody To come and dine -- the pleasure's mine -- And I will play the bill!

May I take this occasion to say That the whole human race Should go down on its knees, Show that we're grateful For mornings like these For the world's in a wonderful way On a wonderful day like today.

On a wonderful day like today When the sky is as grey as an elephant's's nose, Half of me's freezing - the other half's froze! On a wonderful day like today - I'm only joking!

May I take this occasion to pray For a little less cold and a little more heat. Even the sparrows are stamping their feet; If they spoke I know just what they'd say! On a wonderful day like today.

On a wonderful day ... Yes, Sir, what did you say? A fantabulous day! Don't get carried away. On a wonderful day like today!

Pontius Pilate retells a dream in which he will be entirely blamed for Jesus Christ’s crucifixion.
View Lyrics
PILATE I dreamed I met a Galilean; A most amazing man. He had that look you very rarely find: The haunting, hunted kind.
I asked him to say what had happened, How it all began. I asked again, he never said a word. As if he hadn't heard.
And next, the room was full of wild and angry men. They seemed to hate this man. They fell on him, and then They disappeared again.
Then I saw thousands of millions Crying for this man. And then I heard them mentioning my name, And leaving me the blame.

Context & Lyrics


Henry Jekyll sings to his comatose father in an asylum.
View Lyrics
JEKYLL Lost in the darkness, Silence surrounds you. Once there was morning, Now endless night.
If I could reach you, I'd guide you and teach you To walk from the darkness Back into the light.
Deep in your silence, Please try to hear me; I'll keep you near me Till night passes by.
I will find the answer. I'll never desert you-- I promise you this-- Till the day that I die...
