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

Major Bouvier tells his granddaughter Edie the best way to preserve their family’s legacy.
View Lyrics
MAJOR BOUVIER (spoken) Forgive me, ladies, but we live in perilous times. If you want to anchor your self in a uncertain world you have only one recourse:

(sung) With your eye on the ball and your feet on the fairway- Hit it high little girls, marry well!

MAN Four!

MAJOR BOUVIER Every point under par is a leg up the stairway To the sky little girls, marry well. Find a staunch young patrician, Republican! With the blood and the brains to excel! Like the fine strapping lad your late grandmama had Meaning I, little girls, marry well.

Ridiculous woman my daughter Edith Flying at the face of every good solid value I ever tried to instill in her God knows I've tried to teach her tried to teach all of my brood-

EDIE &MAJOR BOUVIER(spoken) The hallmark of aristocracy is responsibility

MAJOR BOUVIER Edie, oh ho ho, the last hope of the great Bouvier clan.

EDIE Oh, honestly!

BROOK But Major Bouvier, the time!

MAJOR BOUVIER Oh alright, alright, I'm coming. Company, fall in! Ten hut!

EDIE Chair the ball for the blind

LEE Treat your church to a steeple

ALL When in doubt, little girls, marry well!

LEE Bail the met out of debt

JACKIE Leave your art to the people.

ALL And the crowd will fall under your spell!

MAJOR BOUVIER But an unmarried lassie who's fast and loose, is a moose in a herd of gazelle!

ALL POW

MAJOR BOUVIER Don't be picked off the pack With your head on a plaque! Do me proud, little girls

ALL Marry well

MAJOR BOUVIER It's your future that counts They say greatness always skips a generation So now its up to you to burnish the family crest And remember girls- this crest of our french royal providence It took a while for it We paid a pile for it So go end up spinsters and diletants! The name Bouvier will surpass all others All of your uncles, aunts-

EDITH Oh Ah Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

MAJOR BOUVIER And mothers

LEE Picture Lee in Milan with a prince and a villa.

MAJOR BOUVIER Sally forth, little girl! Very nice.

JACKIE Jackie B. in Paris, simply bathes in chinchilla

EDIE As for me, Joe will more than suffice!

MAJOR BOUVIER Good girl! With a grandfather's blessing, I wish you love! Someone there when your hair goes to gray, and I'll strut in my spats down the isle of Saint Pat's!

BROOKS Marry high!

EDIE Marry proud!

JACKIE & LEE Nouveau riche ain't allowed!

BROOKS Upper class!

LEE Upper Crust!

JACKIE Standard Oil and Morgan Trust!

EDIE Marry young!

BROOKS Marry chaste!

MAJOR BOUVIER Or if not, then in haste-

ALL Marry well, and you're well on your way!

Context & Lyrics


Guido Contini, a film director suffering from a midlife crisis, struggles to distinguish his ambitious interior world from reality.
View Lyrics
I would like to be here,
I would like to be there. I would like to everywhere at once. I know that's a contradiction in terms, And it's a problem,
Especially when My body's clearing forty
As my mind is nearing ten.
I can hardly stay up,
And I can't get to Sleep, And I don't want to wake tomorrow morning At the bottom of some heap,
But why take it so seriously? After all, there's nothing at Stake here-only me. I want to be young,
And I want to be old.
I would like to be wise before my time And yet be foolish and brash and bold. I would like the universe to get down On it's knees And say, "Guido, whatever you please, It's okay. Even if it's impossible, we'll Arrange it." That's all that I want.
I am lusting for more.
Should I settle for less? I ask you, what's a good thing for, if Not for taking it to excess? One limitation I dearly regret, There's only one of me I've ever met.
I would like to have another me to Travel along with myself. I would even like to be able to sing a Duet with myself.
I would like to be here
(Sing along with myself in a song) To be there
(Walking down a lane now, everywhere) Everywhere
(Everywhere. That's a contradiction in terms. I want to) Here (With a counter-) Here (Melody in the) Here (Top of the morning to you, Guido) Guido (Guido) Guido (Guido) Guido (Me) Me (Me).
I want to be Proust or the Marquis De Sade, I would like to be Christ, Mohammed, Buddha But not have to believe in God, And you know I mean it with all of my heart.
It's the end if something important doesn't start. I want to be young,
But I have to be old. What I want is a tale of sound and fury That some idiot went and told.
I would like the universe to get down On it's knees And say, "Guido, whatever you please, it's okay. Even if it's ridiculous, we'll arrange it." So arrange it!
ALL Arrange it!
GUIDO That's all that I want!

Percy, disguised as the Scarlet Pimpernel, convinces his friends to join him in rescuing people from the guillotine.
View Lyrics
David walked into the valley With a stone clutched in his hand He was only a boy But he knew someone must take a stand

There will always be a valley Always mountains one must scale There will always be perilous waters Which someone must sail

Into valleys, into waters Into jungles, into hell Let us ride, let us ride home again with a story to tell Into darkness, into danger Into storms that rip the night Don't give in, don't give up But give thanks for the glorious fight

You can tremble, you can fear it But keep your fighting spirit alive boys Let the shiver of it sting you Fling into battle, spring to your feet boys Never hold back your step for a moment Never doubt that your courage will grow Hold your head even higher and into the fire we go

Are there mountains that surround us? Are there walls that block the way? Knock 'em down, strip 'em back boys And forward and into the fray

Into terror, into valour Charge ahead, no, never turn Yes, it's into the fire we fly And the devil will burn

Someone has to face the valley Rush in, we have to rally and win boys When the world is saying not to By God, you know you've got to march on, boys Never hold back your step for a moment Never doubt that your courage will grow Hold your head ever higher and into the fire we go

Let the lightning strike Let the flash of it shock you Choke your fears away Pull as tight as a wire Let the fever strike Let the force of it rock you We will have our day, sailing into the fire

Land Ho!

Someone has to face the valley Rush in! We have to rally and win boys When the world is saying not to By God, you know you've got to march on, boys Never hold back your step for a moment Look alive! Oh, your courage will grow Yes, it's higher and higher and into the fire we go Into fire! Onward, ho!

Martin Guerre leaves his family to start a new life.
View Lyrics
They say they follow the Lord's will Still their torture, still they'd kill To make a young man reach his prime
They say he's cursed, he's Satan's child I'm just a boy, betrayed, defiled For a young man needs his time Damn them all While they run with the pack They will pay For the scars on my back

They want my blood They're ready to feed They don't even know The man that they bleed As if a man Can love on demand Accept his life Is already planned

There is no demon inside Just a man full of pride For my hopes haven't died Look...

Look, I'm Martin Guerre Too young to love But still above The lie they live Yes! I'm Martin Guerre A man who knows How evil grows And can't forgive

Soon they will see A man can choose to be free They all look for someone to blame But I swear it aloud, I will be proud that Martin Guerre is my name

First I trusted Pierre I was sold at the shrine Then I trusted the priest Now my blood runs like wine And then there was Bertrande It seems all love must turn to dust There must be someone I can trust

Look, I'm Martin Guerre Father I'm brave And from your grave You'll keep me strong Yes. I'm Martin Guerre For they will learn When I return That I belong

Soon you will see That I can choose to be free They all look for someone to blame But I swear it aloud, I will be proud I'm Martin Guerre They all look for someone to blame But I swear it aloud, I will be proud that Martin Guerre is my name

Randall reveals to Campbell his past as an outcast, and wants her to embrace her life journey.
View Lyrics
RANDALL I'm a stud now, its clear. So it'll shock you to hear That I was a total dork My freshman year --

CAMPBELL You?

RANDALL Right? I was a loser, a mess, A loner, depressed That every day I had to be me Walked around hoping no one Would see me

I'd lock myself in the guys room And let the tears fall, Til one day this custodian Knocked on my stall And asked if I'd heard Of the band: The Grateful Dead -- And I thought he might not be Quite right in the head...

But he changed my life around When he said "Right now everything seems so important. But time rushes by at a clip And when you look back, These high school years Will be nothing more than a blip So you might as well -- enjoy the trip."

CAMPBELL But its such a long blip!

RANDALL Thats what i said! and he said:

"Trust me on this, when you're older And wiser and balder and fatter And you look back on this Moment in time The only things thats gonna Matter is Did you only do what you Thought you should do? Did you dance monkey dance Cause the man told you to? Or did you spend your time doing What brings joy to you?

"All you see is this old dude With a broom in his hand. But I've followed my dreams And my favorite band."

So don't sit on your ass Waiting for life to begin If you do what you love With your time, then you win! What a long, strange, Wonderful trip it's been!

Right now everything seems So important But time rushes by at a clip And when you look back, These high school years Will be nothing more than a blip Just a tale to tell!

RANDALL & CAMPBELL That rings a bell So what the hell! We might as well enjoy the trip!

Will Bloom, excited about the future of his future child, wishes to strengthen the relationship with his father.
View Lyrics
Stranger I'm feeling stranger Than I've ever felt before And so much more
Different Like something old has joined With something new But still feels true

I'm passing through a rite That every parent does I'm walking on some shared familiar ground Yet every step I take Is not a step that was And I found I like the sound of

Stranger A child I've yet to meet Becomes my everything My song to sing Father And suddenly the weight of it is real What do I feel?

I feel connected In a way I've never known A line from dad to me to new-born son So from today I'll never make a choice alone One for all All for one

And when he's born I'll teach him how to use his common sense He'll listen and he'll learn and he'll excel I'll tell my son That life is lived in clear and present tense Not only in the stories we can tell

My father told me stories I could never comprehend In every tale he'd claim to be the hero I've tried to understand him But I wonder if I can

Because after almost thirty years I still don't know the man I wish I knew the man

But he's a stranger My father is a stranger I know very well A puzzling shell Hopeful What's on its way help us both to grow But I don't know

I don't know when I'll understand What made him wild I don't know why he has the urge to fly I want to face him Like a man and not a child So I'll try I'll really try

And in time, my boy is sure to see Brighter days for dad and me We can do things better than before So that strangers we will be no more

View Lyrics
Raise your foot now that’s the way You’ll be movin’ on today Raise the other put it down Now you’re headed into town Oh boy you got left, right Oh boy, ain’t that right

Got some years ahead to go You’ll go free if you take it slow Oh boy you got left, right oh boy, ain’t that right

Two kinds of people in this world Some say yes and some say no Time to say which side you’re on Eeeny meeny miney moe

Say yes and your adventure start Not always as expected Say no you stay apart But you stay protected

You’ve got to give your self A reason to rejoice Cause the music you make Counts for everything Now every living soul has got a voice You’ve got to give it room And let it sing

My family never had too much Made the best of every day Ate what’s on our plates you know Never threw a thing away We kept our nightmares on the shelf Our dreams were on the table Pass ‘em down and help your self As long as you are able

My momma told me Son forget what might have been Give yourself a break whatever’s happening Don’t let your spirit, son, come closing in You gotta give it room and let it, let it sing You gotta give it room and let it sing Oh you gotta lift up your voice and sing

Got some years ahead to go You’ll go free if you take it slow Got some years it won’t be long You’ll be free to sing your song

Oh boy you got left, right Oh boy

There's precious little really folks like us controlled But you can make your music from the simplest thing And though no one has got to tend your soul You’ve got to give it room and let it Let it sing You’ve got to give it room and let it sing

You’ve got to let it sing You got to let it sing You got to give it room And let it sing

A civilian is doubtful of the existence of God.
View Lyrics
Shining in the eyes of every child, And in the flame of dawn reflecting on the open sea. In every fury and every love, You are awaiting me.

But what about the child who cannot breathe, Or the gentle sage who won't see the age of thirty-two? I am awaiting, I am awaiting you.

Light it all and burn it to the ground! Go ahead and let your thunder sound! Let me watch my loves and my teachers slowly fade away. I'll just have to wait another day.

Maybe in God we trust just a lucky charm, Maybe faith is only hoping that we can rise anew. And so I rise and so I stand. I am awaiting you, oh, I will still be standing here awaiting you.

Light it all and burn it to the ground! Go ahead and let your thunder sound! Let me watch my loves and my teachers slowly fade away. I'll just have to wait another day.

And so I rise and so I stand. I am awaiting, I am awaiting you. Awaiting you, oh, I will still be standing here awaiting you.

Henry Jekyll's menacing alter ego, Edward Hyde, starts to manifest.
View Lyrics
HYDE What is this feeling Of power and drive I've never known? I feel alive!

Where does this feeling Of power derive, Making me know Why I'm alive?

Like the night, it's a secret, Sinister dark and unknown. I do not know what I seek, Yet I'll seek it alone!

I have a thirst That I cannot deprive. Never have I felt so alive!

There is no battle I couldn't survive - Feeling like this - Feeling alive!

Like the moon, an enigma, Lost and alone in the night Damned by some heavenly stigma, But blazing with light!

It's the feeling of being alive! Filled with evil, but truly alive! It's the truth that cannot be denied! It's the feeling of being Edward Hyde!

Lamar explains the Parable of the Sower.
View Lyrics
We plow the fields and scatter the good seed on the land.. But it is fed and watered by God's almighty hand.. He sends us snow in winter, the warmth to swell the grain... The breezes and the sunshine, and soft refreshing rain...

All good gifts around us Are sent from Heaven above So thank the Lord, oh thank the Lord for all his love...

We thank thee then, O Father, for all things bright and good, The seedtime and the harvest, our life, our health, our food, No gifts have we to offer for all thy love imparts But that which thou desirest, our humble thankful hearts!

All good gifts around us Are sent from Heaven above.. So thank the Lord, oh thank the Lord for all his love..

I really wanna thank you Lord!

Radames and his soldiers return to Egypt after a mission through Egypt’s rival Nubia.
View Lyrics
SOLDIERS Oh, Oh Fortune Favors the Brave Oh, Oh Fortune Favors the Brave
RADAMES We have swept to glory, Egypt's mastery expands From the Nile's northern most delta To the dry, dry southern sands
The more we find, the more we see, The more we come to learn The more that we explore, The more we shall return
SOLDIERS Oh, oh Fortune favors the brave
RADAMES It's all worked out, my road is clear The lines of latitude extend Way beyond my wildest dreams Toward some great triumphant end
We seize the day We turned the tide We touched the stars We mocked the grave We moved into uncharted lands
RADAMES &SOLDIERS Fortune favors the brave
RADAMES The more we find, the more we see The more we come to learn The more that we explore The more we shall return
Nothing is an accident We are free to have it all We are what we want to be It's in ourselves to rise or fall
This is easy to believe When distant places call to me It's harder from the palace yard Fortune favors the free
SOLDIERS Oh, oh
RADAMES Fortune favors the young!
SOLDIERS Oh, oh
RADAMES Fortune favors the brave!

Christine convinces Mary that her love for Del knows no boundaries
View Lyrics
Our kind of love, our kind of passion Burns with a heat so hard to bear It's not a game, no fad or fashion Our kind of love's for those who dare

I must be strong, I must be bolder Cling to my dream and never tire Each love denied leaves people colder New love rekindles every fire

I shan't betray my heart's desire Even though we come From different sides We won't hide

I am in love, no one can blame me Such is my story and my fate My kind of love will never shame me My love is stronger than their hate My love is stronger than their hate

I shall cling to him with all my might It's my right

All kinds of love bring us together Causing the broken hearts to mend People must love now and forever There's only one love in the end There's only one love in the end

After Neville threatens to send Mary to boarding school, the chambermaid Martha encourages her to persevere.
View Lyrics
I think you were just what our Colin needed. What you've got to do is finish What you have begun! I don't know just how But it's not over till you've won.

When you see the storm is coming See the lightning part the skies It's too late to run There's terror in your eyes What you do then is remember This old thing you heard me say "It's the storm, not you That's bound to blow away"

Hold on Hold on to someone standing by Hold on Don't even ask how long or why? Child, hold on to what you know is true Hold on till you get through Child, oh child Hold on

When you feel your heart is poundin' Fear a devil's at your door There's no place to hide You're frozen to the floor What you do then is you force yourself To wake up, and just say "It's this dream, not me That's bound to go away"

Hold on Hold on, the night will soon be by Hold on Until there's nothing left to try Child, hold on, there's angels on their way Hold on and hear them say "Child, oh child!"

And it doesn't even matter If the danger and the doom Come from up above or down below Or just come flying at you from across the room

When you see a man who's raging And he's jealous and he fears That you've walked through walls He's hid behind for years What you do then Is you tell yourself to wait it out And say "It's this day, not me That's bound to go away"

Child, oh hold on It's this day, not you That's bound to go away

The tomboy Molly Tobin proclaims her desire to learn to read, write, and find a rich husband.
View Lyrics
I'm goan' to learn to read and write, I'm goan' to see what there is to see, So if you go from nowhere On the road to somewhere And you meet anyone You know it's me.

You'll see me carried shoulder high, By famous people I've never met, But till I leave the rear, It's from the rear you'll hear, "I ain't down yet." To show that you know, You got to show you know you know!

I'm goan' to move From place to place To find a house With a goldn stair And if that house is red And has a big brass bed I'm liiiivin' there.

You'll see me carried shoulder high, By famous people I've never met, But till I leave the rear, It's from the rear you'll hear, "I ain't down yet."

Sharon explains her father's theory behind following dreams.
View Lyrics
On the day I was born, said my father, said he, I've an elegant legacy waiting for ye. Tis a rhyme for your lips and a song for your heart, To sing whenever the world falls apart.

Look, look, look to the rainbow. Follow it over the hill and stream. Look, look, look to the rainbow. Follow the fellow who follows a dream. Follow the fellow, follow the fellow, Follow the fellow who follows a dream.

'Twas a sumptuous gift bequeathed to a child. Oh, the lure of that song Kept her feet running wild. For you never grow old and you never stand still With a whippoorwill singing beyond the next hill.

So, I bundled me heart and I roamed the world free. To the east with the lark Tow the west with the sea. And I searched all the world and I scanned all the skies. But I found it at last in my own true love's eyes.

Dolores Dante is a waitress who boasts the joys of her job.
View Lyrics
There's some as don't care When they put down a plate There's a sound Not with me When they move a chair It'll scrape with a grate On the ground Not with me
I will have my hand right when I place a glass Notice how I stand right as customers pass Serve a demi-tass with a gesture so gentile Or do it again 'til It's near oriental
Da da da da dum dum
It's an art it's an art To be a fine waitress To see that you pleasure each guest There's a twist to my wrist If I let a fork drop Or cut up a porkchop Or serve a New York chop It all needs be stylish and smart That's what makes it an art
I remember one day As I do now and then I had shakes And down I went There with my tray Full of seven prime tenderloin steaks And down I went
But I kept my poise - not one guest heard me fall Never made a noise - not one noise food and all If you have to crawl you give 'em what they like You carry your tray like It's almost ballet-like
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la
It's an art, it's an art To be a fine waitress Each evening I treasure the test Though my chef may be deaf I stay diplomatic If I give him static He might burn the haddock Or put too much salt in a tart Even that is an art
Tips? HA! Tips are important For people like captains and barmen For them it's a tips, see? For me, I'm a gypsy Just toss me a coin And I suddenly feel like I'm Carmen
So on through the ulcer The backache, the hot, sweaty feet On you go Through, "Is your knife dull, sir?" And, "Madam wants what with her meat?" On you go
Two AM approaches, the curtains descend There among the roaches my act's at an end Every night I tend to find myself crying There's no work so trying Or so satisfying
I tell everybody that I'm a waitress and I'm proud. Somebody comes up to me and says, "Hey you're terrific. How come you're just a waitress?" Ya know what I say to them? I say, "Why? Don't you think you deserve to be served by me?"
It's an art
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS It's an art
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS To be a great waitress
GUESTS Please take care of this
WAITRESS To do without leisure or rest
GUESTS Could we have our check please?
WAITRESS So I zoom

WAITRESS Through the room

WAITRESS With a flair no one else has
GUESTS Bring some more of these
WAITRESS An air no one else has I swear no one else has My lilt
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS When I say
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS "A la carte"
GUESTS And another order to go
WAITRESS You can see it gives me a glow
GUESTS My plate, miss! My cup, miss!
WAITRESS Ev'ry time I prove I'm a pro
GUESTS I'm late, miss! Hurry up, miss!
WAITRESS Maybe I'm not quite
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS Michelangelo
GUESTS And a bag for my dog
WAITRESS But I'm not just a waitress
GUESTS You were great
WAITRESS I'm a one
GUESTS But I'm late
WAITRESS Woman
GUESTS My check please My change please
WAITRESS Show
GUESTS C'mon please Lady, let's go

I know you, your name is Sue But who am I? I've gotta find out At least I'm gonna try

I'm going back Where I can be me At the Bonjour Tristesse Brassière Company

They've got a great big switchboard there Where it's just hello, goodbye It may be dull But there I can be just me, myself and I

A little modeling on the side Yes, that's where I'll be At the Bonjour Tristesse Brassière Company

And if anybody asks for Ella, Mella or Mom Tell them that I'm goin' back where I came from To the B.T. Bras-se-ière Company

Goodbye everybody Goodbye Madame Grimaldi Goodbye Junior Mallett Santa Claus is a-hittin' the road

Listen to your mama, mama, mama Eat your spinach baby Eat your spinach baby By the load

La petite bergère restaurant adieu Je ne reviendrai jamais, jamais, jamais C'est tout fini Adieu to you

So, goodbye Max, to your dogs and your cats To the Duke of Windsor and His Duchess

Bye bye Barton and Kitchell and Hastings At last you're out of my clutches

I'll miss you but you'll carry on You'll never know that I've gone

I'm a-going back Where I can be me At the Bonjour Tristesse Brassière Company

And while I'm sitting there I'll hope that I find out Just what Ella Peterson is all about In that Shangri-La of lacy lingerie

A little modeling on the side At the Bonjour Tristesse Brassière Company Send me my mail dere! To the Bonjour Tristesse Company

Sarah Crewe vents her frustration about her caretaker Miss Minchin.
View Lyrics
I don’t want to go along with the crowd Don’t want to live life under a cloud Give me some air and space And sun on my face I want to live out loud

Don’t want to be alone in the crowd Don’t want to seem peculiar and proud I need to be as free As I know how to be I want to live out loud

Every day – sleep, walk, lock, step No one dares to stray Though they may – straightlaced, shamefaced Long to break away They’re as lonely as can be Is that what they want from me?

I don’t want to go along with the crowd Don’t want to live life under a cloud Give me some air and space And sun on my face I want to live out loud

Don’t want to be alone in the crowd Don’t want to seem peculiar and proud Nobody wants me here But I won’t be disappear I want to live out loud

I want to run down an open shoreline I want to join in a moonlit dance I want to swing from the branches of a tree I wanna bathe in a hidden inlet And let the breeze come and dry my hair I want the life they took away from me

If they makes me headstrong – fine! That’s a fault I’m glad is mine.

I don’t want to go along with the crowd Don’t want my spirit broken and bowed Why do I have to hide what I’m feeling inside I want to live out loud

Don’t want to be alone in the crowd I only want what I’m not allowed Give me the wings of a bird I’ll be seen and be heard

I want to sing when my heart is full I want to sing and I want to fly I want to soar the sky without a cloud I want to live out loud.

Context & Lyrics


A group of prostitutes stands up for themselves against pimps and a gospel group.
View Lyrics
I've had it up to here With all these holier-than-thous Who want to save me from the devils wicked den
When all they really want is What those jokers always want And when they get we don't see them Until they want it again
Don't quote me no commandments Don't preach me no jive There's only one commandment Thou shall survive
Maybe I'm a sinner, but who's gonna cast the first stone? It's my body and my body Is nobody's business but my own Nobody's business but my own
What if I'm a sinner, hey, I ain't exactly alone It's my body and my body Is nobody's business but my own Nobody's business but my own
All those uptown ladies Look and dress so fine They can sell it their way, Let me sell it mine!
Maybe you don't like it Maybe you don't like it But that don't mean nothing because My body is my business, My business not yours
I know what I'm doing And I know who I am If you got a problem I don't give a damn (3x)
Ain't no doubt about it 'Cause baby it's written in stone It's my body not your body Cuz my body is my business, My business Is my business And nobody's business (4x) But my own!

Georgie and her friends take pride in their new independence as being the breadwinners of their families.
View Lyrics
GEORGIE Who’s got power? Who’s got juice? Who’s got the money?
WOMEN It’s a woman’s world
GEORGIE Who feels freedom To let loose Tonight, honey, honey –

WOMEN It’s a woman’s world

GEORGIE Back at home my libido is asleep Nothing stirring up the batter Now I know all I needed was a heap O’ dancing beefcake on a platter

WOMEN A silver platter!

GEORGIE Let’s get sweaty and Let’s get mean Fire up the burner –

WOMEN It’s a woman’s world

GEORGIE I’ll be president

SUSAN I’ll be queen

JOANIE I’ll be Tina Turner –

WOMEN It’s a woman’s world

GEORGIE ‘Cause tonight

WOMEN Yeah tonight

ALL It’s a woman’s world

GEORGIE Work all day, I come home and he’s all pissed It’s a wallow-in-the-mudfest Now I know all I need to clear the system’s Just a raunchy little studfest

God bless their little G-strings!

All that music and all that beat Who’s feeling funny –

WOMEN It’s a woman’s world

GEORGIE All those men moving All that meat Tonight, honey-honey –

WOMEN It’s a woman’s world

SUSAN I like the chunky little butt On that motorcycle cop I wanna go up there and bite it

GEORGIE You’ll chip a tooth, honey!

JOANIE Or G.I. Joe with the military jock I’d give a hundred bucks to see what’s inside it

SUSAN What’s inside it?

ESTELLE What’s inside it?

ALL Why do they hide it?

All that music and all that beat Making me dizzy It’s a woman’s world All those men moving All that meat

GEORGIE Let’s get busy!

ALL It’s a woman’s world Well it might be the men’s room

GEORGIE Yeah, but tonight –

ALL It’s a woman’s world!

Context & Lyrics


High school junior Campbell decides to form a cheerleading squad of her own to get back at her rival Eva.
View Lyrics
CAMPBELL Gone My one chance to shine The friends I called mine The girl the world will never see More than replaced It’s like she’s erased the best of me
I have no choice I’ve got to take back what she stole Get back my one moment
Made a vow I was gonna be a cheerleader Like the Buccaneers in front of me Now if only I could find a way To get back into the Nationals And make her pay!

Nautica! La Cienega! Danielle! Jackson?

COMPANY Jackson! Go Jackson! Go jackson! Go go go Jackson go! Oh… Let everybody know Campbell’s back-

CAMPBELL This is my town! Oh…

COMPANY Oh…. and Eva’s going down! Eva is like the best-coolest- sweetest cheer captain… I’m in love with Eva Oh my god!

Bring it on! Go! Bring it on! Go Campbell! Bring it on! Go Campbell go!

CAMPBELL I’ll take first place and throw it in your face!

COMPANY Rah!

CAMPBELL Think you can beat me? Go ahead c’mon!

COMPANY C’mon! c’mon! c’mon!

CAMPBELL And once I have my squad You’ll feel the wrath of God

COMPANY So let the doubters And the haters And my tears be gone!

CAMPBELL I’m gonna bring it on!

COMPANY My year! My time!

CAMPBELL I’m gonna bring it on!

COMPANY My destiny! Bring it on-

CAMPBELL Gonna bring it on!

Context & Lyrics


Grania (known in the show as “Grace”) vents to her lover Tiernan over her frustration that her father Dubhdara forbids her to sail on his ship.
View Lyrics
Woman I am born What does “woman” mean? Must my dreams face scorn Held back and unseen

If I long for fire Must it stay unreal? Can I not desire? Am I not to feel?

If I ache to taste Am I not to try? If my heart says sail Why must I deny? I have my dreams I have made plans

I see horizons wide as a man’s Must I be nothing till I’m some man’s wife?

Look at this face Does it deceive? Do I look made to milk and to weave? I will be damned to Hell if that is my life! (Interlude)

Tiernan, I’m almost your age, I’m your match in size, I’m your match with swords An equal in most eyes

But when you have a dream And you’re caught in it’s grip You can climb aboard a ship You can – You can for you’re a man

You can reach toward that place Where the earth meets the sky Fight a battle be brave, be true If you can do it, why not I?

I’m meant to fly Sail unrestrained Why is man free and woman chained? Is that my epitaph before I die?

I should be free Free to be Grace I want to feel the wind on my face! And when life beckons, I should go Face out the storm, not stay below Am I to be just woman? No! Not I!

Context & Lyrics


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
