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.

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.

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

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!

Phil has feelings for Ruth, and wants to build a house to share with her.
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!

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!

Georges, who owns La Cage aux Folles, teaches the drag queen Albin to become less flamboyant.
View Lyrics
GEORGES I want you to pick up that piece of toast like a man!
Think of this as Masculine toast and Masculine butter, Ready for spreading by a Masculine hand. Pick up that knife and make believe it's a machete. It'll take all your strength and steady nerves For hacking your way through the cherry preserves.
Think of John Wayne, and Jean Paul Belmondo. Think of the Legionnaires and Charlemagne's men. So like a stevedore you grab your cup And if God forbid that your pinky pops up, You can climb back up the mountain once again.
Have you got that?
ALBIN I think so!
GEORGES Don't think so! You're a man!
ALBIN I'm a man!
RENAUD You're a man!
ALBIN I'm a man!
MME. RENAUD You're a man!
ALBIN I said I'm a man.
MME. RENAUD Oh, Albin
GEORGES About that voice of yours. Grunt like an ape, and growl like a tiger. Give us a roaring, snorting masculine laugh!
ALBIN Ah ah ah ah ah ah!
GEORGES Try to remember that John Wayne was not soprano. Try making it rough and gruff and low.
ALBIN Ha Ha!
GEORGES Try more of John Wayne and less Brigitte Bardodt!
RENAUD Think of De Gaulle and pick up Rasputin.
MME. RENAUD Think like you're Daniel marching into the den.
GEORGES While trying to join the burly brutes, If you forget that your nylons are under your boots
GEORGES, RENAUD, MME. RENAUD, & FRANCIS You can climb back up the mountain once again...
ALL Think Ghengis Kan (Think!) and think Taras Bulba (Think!) (Think! Think! Think!) Think of Atilla's Huns and Robin Hood's men. (Hup! Hup!)
Try not to weaken or collapse; If they discover the petticoat under your chaps You can climb back up the mountain once again. Woah! Yeah!

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!

Thomas Andrews, designer of the Titanic, believes it to be humanity's next great accomplishment.
View Lyrics
In every age mankind attempts To fabricate great works At once magnificent And impossible...
On desert sands, from mountains of stone A pyramid! From flying buttresses alone A wall of light! A chapel ceiling Screaming one man's ecstasy! One man's ecstasy...
Miracles them all! China's endless wall... Stonehenge, the Parthenon, the Duomo The aqueducts of Rome
We did not attempt to make With mammoth blocks of stone A giant pyramid. No, not a pyramid...
Nor gothic walls that radiate with light... Our task was to dream upon And then create A floating city! Floating city...
A human metropolis... A complete civilization! Sleek! And fast!
At once a poem And the perfection Of physical engineering... At once a poem And the perfection Of physical engineering.

Og, who has feelings for both Sharon and Susan, contemplates the fickleness of love.
View Lyrics
Oh my heart is beating wildly And it's all because you're here. When I'm not near
The girl I love, I love the girl I'm near.
Ev'ry femme that flutters by me Is a flame that must be fanned. If I can't fondle the hand I'm fond of, I fondle the hand at hand.
My heart's in a pickle, It's constantly fickle And not too partickle, I fear. When I'm not near
The girl I love, I love the girl I'm near.
What if they're tall and tender
What if they're small and slender Long as they've got that gender I surrender

Always I can't refuse them Always my feet pursue them Long as they've got a bosom I woos 'em

I'm confessing a confession And I hope I'm not verbose When I'm not close to the kiss that I cling to, I cling to the kiss that's close

As I'm more and more a mortal I am more and more a case. When I'm not facing the face that I fancy. I fancy the face I face.

For Sharon I'm carin', But Susan I'm choosin' I'm faithful to whos'n is here. When I'm not near the girl I love, I love the girl I'm near.

I haven't got a great big yacht But I'm contented with my lot I've got one thing much more beautiful and grand

I do not own a racing horse But that don't fill me with remorse I possess the greatest show piece in the land So come with me and wander To a lovely spot out yonder

In the Flower Garden of my heart I've got violets as blue as your eyes I've got dainty narcissus as sweet as my missus And lilies as pure as the sky

In the Flower Garden of my heart I've roses as red as your mouth Just to keep our love holy I've got gladioli And sunflowers fresh from the south But you are the artist and love is the art In the flower garden of my heart

GLADYS In the flower garden of my heart I've got lilacs and dainty sweet peas You will look like sweet Willium And smell like a trillium Surrounded by fond bumblebees But you are the pastry And I am the tart In the flower garden of heart

Burrs refuses Kate's advances, and professes dark feelings for Queenie.
View Lyrics
BURRS What is it about her That makes me want her? What is it about her That turns me pale? Something in her smile Something that I'll never understand Her wild abandon.

BURRS & QUEENIE What is it about her I know it's wrong That parts the waters? I know he's rough What is it about her That hoists the sail? I don't know what to do But we've been through enough

BURRS Something in her hair Instructing where to touch Why do I need her so much?

This woman makes me cry This woman makes me burn This woman's eye can cut me to the core

The hatred that I see Has been reserved for me Yet I want more And more And more

BURRS & QUEENIE And what is it about her Oooh... That pulls me closer? That way he's always there What is it about her That tips the scale? His strange and silent stare.

BURRS This girl is all I have So soft so fair, so fine And she's forever mine.

This woman builds me up This woman tears me down This woman speaks and I can break apart

Now comes another man Pretending he can win her heart Well, let him start.

What is it about her So slight, so secret? Something in the way she catches light

BURRS & QUEENIE Who's wrong? Who's right? I've never known. Should I hold my own Now - Or be alone We fall Tonight? We fight.

What is it about her What is it about him? That jumbles feelings inside? So coarse, so queer What is it about her What is it about him... That mixes passion with pride? That holds me here?

BURRS Could I live without her And let her go? How loud must I scream No!

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!

Lookout Fleet finds it difficult to watch for icebergs.

FLEET No moon No wind Nothing to spy things by

IDA STRAUS It's a beautiful night, Mr. Straus Even though there's no moon Look at all the stars Can you find the big dipper?
ISIDOR STRAUS (spoken) The big dipper? I can't even find our own stateroom. Every time I go out for a walk, finding my way back is an adventure.

JIM FARRELL Are you cold, then, Katie?

MURDOCH Aye, aye, sir
CAPT. SMITH There's not much wind, is there?
LIGHTOLLE No, Sir. It appears to be a flat calm.
FLEET SMITH,LIGHTOLLER,MURDOCH ...And we go sailing
See how calm it is Sailing Smooth as polished glass Ah, the open sea Ever westward on the sea Feel the bite in the air ...We go sailing Sailing Ah, the open sea Smooth as polished glass Ever on Go we...

MRS. CARDOZA Good evening, gentlemen.
THE MAJOR Madam, this happens to be the Smoke Room!
MRS. CARDOZA So I see.
J.J. ASTOR Women are never permitted in the 1st class Smoke Room, madam.
MRS. CARDOZA Don't look so shocked, gentlemen. There's a new world out there.

Danny, a university junior, proposes to his pregnant girlfriend Lizzie.
View Lyrics
As I leave my single life behind Thoughts are kind of spinning in my mind
First I think about you Then I think about me loving you Then I think about you and me
Deciding we could be one
It's crazy I know,
I wrestled with my pillow all last night And I look at you
And I know I chose right
Life's a very long road And the crossroads come up
Right away And it's so hard to know which way to go
When you've barely begun
And Oh, the road you leave behind
Can shine so bright And I look at you
And I know I chose right
Now maybe we don't mean that much
You and I And maybe our balloon will never fly And maybe no one cares if we let things go by And maybe doesn't matter if we live or die
But if I'm making promises to you today I wanna know I'll keep them all the way So if I've not been good at meaning what I say It's time now to try
So I think about you
And I think about me loving you Then I think of my friends who'll say they're in love
When they're just havin' fun
But I say no no no
If I am gonna love its with all my might And I will be true,
I will follow this through
And I look at you And I know I chose right

View Lyrics
I am dejected, I am depressed, Yet resurrected And sailing the crest. Why this elation, Mixed with deflation? What explanation? I am in love!
Such conflicting questions ride Around in my brain, Should I order cyanide Or order champagne? Oh, what is this sudden jolt? I feel like a frighten'd colt Just hit by a thunderbolt, I am in love!
I knew the odds Were against me before, I had no flair For flaming desire, But since the gods Gave me you to adore, I may lose But I refuse to fight the-fire!
So come and enlighten my days And never depart. You only can brighten the blaze That burs in my heart,
For I am wildly in love with you, And so in need of A stampede of Love!

As a poor child, Valentin learned that if freedom would not come tomorrow, it would come eventually.
View Lyrics
VALENTIN It was made out of mud And pieces of tin And boxes nailed together Cardboard boxes My castle My home
And we slept on the floor My sister and I With gunny sacks for our pillows Coughing, hungry, cosy My home
And every Sunday on our knees We would thank the Lord For his bountiful blessings
And our mother poured soup Into little cracked bowls As she spoke of something better Beef steak, maybe, someday My home
And that lady had eyes That were empty and cold At the ripe old age of thirty Death came Welcome To my home
And still that Sunday On our knees How we thanked the Lord For his bountiful blessings
And my sister and I Swore the day that we left There'd be no more children like us In the filth there, in the heat there. In the smell there
And no more Sundays On our knees Would we thank the Lord For his bountiful blessings
And we came to the city And begged for our food Then, one April day we heard it Thunder rumbling One man speaking Thousands singing...
Someday we'll be free I promise you, we'll be free If not tomorrow Then the day after that
And the candles in our hands Will illuminate this land If not tomorrow Then the day after that
And the world that gives us pain That fills our lives with fear On the day after that Will disappear
And the war we've fought to win I promise you, we will win If not tomorrow Then the day after that Or the day after that

CHORUS & VALENTIN Someday we'll be free I promise you, we'll be free If not tomorrow Then the day after that

And the candles in our hands Will illuminate this land If not tomorrow Then the day after that
And the world that gives us pain That fills our lives with fear On the day after that Will disappear Will disappear
Will disappear
And the war we've fought to win I promise you, we will win If not tomorrow Then the day after that Or the day after that Or the day after that Or the day after that Or the day after that Or the day After that!

The Baron and the ballerina Grushinskaya fall in love with each other, yet are slightly in denial about it.
View Lyrics
BARON VON GAIGERN Mademoiselle, I have followed you everywhere, Almost throughout your career. London, Vienna, Paree, I've admired you, Hoping one day we might meet in this way. But I never thought I'd be carried away, Oh, I knew you'd be beautiful, but not so beautiful...
Why am I talking this way?
Can this be real to me?
Nonesense my boy,
You knew she'd be beautiful
But not so beautiful

Love can't happen quite so quickly, Not unless I dreamed you, beautif'ly and sweetly... No, don't look through me so clearly. I might very nearly lose myself completely. Who could ever have suspected you would make me tremble so? I can't think of any answer other than, if love comes... When love comes, you know.

What is this I'm saying? What is this I'm feeling? Like I'm getting drunk, looking in her eyes... Overwhelming face, utterly appealing. Never mind the truth, never mind the lies. Never mind a thought in the world except...

Love can't happen quite so quickly, I might very nearly lose myself completely. Who could ever have suspected I would be here trembling so? I can't think of any answer other than, if love comes, When love comes, you know. And I know!

View Lyrics
My life had no color
Before I met you What could have been duller
The times I went through You weakened my resistance
And colored my existence I'm happy, and unhappy too
I'm a red hot Mama
But I'm blue for you I get purple with anger
At the things you do And I'm green with envy
When you meet a dame But you burn my heart up
With an orange flame.
I'm a red hot mama
But you white and cold Don't you know your Mama
Has a heart of gold. Though we're in those grey clouds
Someday you see That terrific rainbow
Over you and me.

Julia fantasizes and plots to win back Proteus.
View Lyrics
Because he loves her He despises me Because I love him I pity him

If I could be her Just for a moment When he was holding her I would insult him Then he’d be unhappy And not know where to run

I could turn back into me And I would comfort him What a nice idea What a sweet idea But easier said than done.

Wait!

If I could be him Just for a moment I’d hold her so close And yell insults at her She’d never speak to him again

I could turn back into me And I would comfort him It ends up the same Either way

All I want to do Is have someone scold him Then I’d come on the scene And gladly hold him That’s my idea of fun

Que bonita idea Que idea mas linda Que idea mas dulce Que idea ams rica What a lovely idea What a lovely idea But easier said than done But easier said than done.

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

Mimi Paragon, a ship captain, rants and raves about embarrassing travelers and their awkward behaviors overseas.
View Lyrics
Travel they say improves the mind, An irritating platitude, which frankly, entrenous, Is very far from true.

Personally I've yet to find that longitude and latitude can educate those scores of monumental bores Who travel in groups and herds and troupes Of various breeds and sexes Till the whole world reels... to shouts and squeals... And the clicking of Roliflexes.

Why do the wrong people travel, travel, travel When the right people stay back home? What compulsion compels them and who the hell tells them To drag their clans to Zanzibar, instead of staying quietly in Omaha.

The Taj Mahal and the Grand Canal And the sunny French Rivera Would be less oppressed if the Middle West Would settle for somewhere rather nearer. Please do not think that I criticize or cavel At a genuine urge to roam.

But why, oh why, do the wrong people travel When the right people stay back home And mind their business When the right people stay back home And eat hot doughnuts When the right people stay back home I sometimes wonder Why the right people stay back home.

Just when you think romance is ripe it rather sharply dawns on you That each sweet serenade is for the tourist trade Any attractive native type who resolutely fawns on you Will give as his address, American Express There isn't a rock between Bangkok and the beaches of His-pianola That does not recoil from suntan oil and the gurgle of Coca-Cola

Why do the wrong people travel, travel, travel When the right people stay back home? What explains this mass mania to leave Pennsylvania And clack around like flocks of geese. Demanding dry martinis on the isles of Greece In the smallest street, where the gourmets meet, They invariably fetch up And it's hard to make them accept a steak that isn't served rare and smeared with ketchup.

Millions of tourists are churning up the gravel While they gaze at St. Peter's Dome,

But why, oh why do the wrong people travel when the right people stay back home with Cinerama when the right people stay back home with all that Kleenex when the right people stay back home I merely asking why the right people stay back home

What peculiar obsessions inspire those processions Of families from Houston Tex with all those cameras around their necks? They will take a train Or an aeroplane For an hour on the Costa Brava, And they'll see Pompeii On the only day When it's up to its ass in molten lava! It would take years to unravel, ravel, ravel Every impulse that makes them wanna roam.

But why oh WHY do the wrong people travel When the right people stay at home." And Yogie Bear-O When the right people stay back home Won't someone tell me Why the right people stay back home.

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.
