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.

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

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.

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!

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-

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!

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!

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!

Stine experiences the collapse of his real and fictional worlds.
View Lyrics
Funny, How'd I fail to see this little bed time tale was funny? I could cry to think of all the irony i've missed! What an unusual twist Right at the end of it

Funny, Who could see that this pathetic scene would be So funny Once you strain to find the grain of humor Underneath Life double crosses with style Forcing you into a smile So it can kick you in the teeth

Just desserts We can all laugh till it hurts At my expense I'm accustomed to working on "spec" I always pick up the check

I think it's funny Who could top or make this comic op'ra more Compelling You could weave in some deceit to even up the Score

You'd have us all on the floor That would be roaringly funny Sad enough my life's a joke that suffers in the telling Just another hoary chestnut from the bottom drawer I've heard so often before That I can't laugh anymore

Context & Lyrics


Oscar, a selfish impresario, tries to convince his colleagues that he will regain success even after four flops.
View Lyrics
OSCAR (spoken) Traitors! Look at the two of you: Judas Iscariot and his sister Sue. You think I’m finished? They all think I’m finished. Just because I've had a failure... All right, four failures. But what glorious ones! Let them kick me when I'm down... but every time they think I’m through…

(sung) I rise again Full size again, And give those doubting Thomases a walloping surprise again! I sneer at them, I jeer at them, I thumb my nose and bite my thumb and bare my royal rear at them!

With my back up against the wall, With the wolves yapping at my heels, With the noose tightening ‘round my neck, That's the time I know how really living feels.

With the wall up against my back, With the water rising to my chin, Chained and bound tight inside a sack, That's the plight that I'm delighted in!

For I have powers like Aladdin's Genie did. I do escape tricks better than Houdini did. From the black of my cul-de-sac, Do I crack and fall? No – I attack! With my back up against the wall…

OLIVER & OWEN Listen boss, you've got to use your brain. Everyone you owe will meet the train

OSCAR I Shine again, All is mine again, A fighter rising from the canvas at the count of nine - -

OLIVER & OWEN Nine? The count is ten! You're out! The drums of doom are knocking. Your theatre and your offices The bankers will be locking.

OSCAR I spit at them, Spray flit at them. I'll face those grim Goliaths with my sling shot And I’ll hit at them.

With my back up against the wall, Angry birds pecking with their beaks Or submerged, sealed inside a tomb – That challenge brings the roses to my cheeks.

So rally 'round me now, my musketeering men. We’ll turn that raging lynch mob into cheering men! From the false reports of my demise, Like the phoenix right before their eyes With my back up against the wall…

OLIVER & OWEN With his back up against the wall…

OSCAR I rise again!

OLIVER & OWEN Ah-ah-ah

ALL THREE I (He'll) rise again!

Kerchak has just exiled Tarzan from the gorilla clan.
View Lyrics
KERCHAK My worst fear I hold it now I always knew that this would happen Though he's a child its in his blood And he will grow So now its clear what I must do I know too well what he'll become For as long as I draw breath I'll remember

KALA (spoken) Wheres Tarzan? Where is he?

KERCHAK No turning back Whats done is done I have seen what they can do He can't be saved by you, by me It's too late

KALA (spoken) No, I wont let you do this. How can you think-

KERCHAK No more fighting. I'll be obeyed I'll stand my ground Don't dare defy me I know his kind I know the truth I will protect us

No other way Open your eyes It's there to see No other way He's not one of us And never will be

KALA (spoken) Just listen to me

KERCHAK No more to say He is what he is And that won't change There's no other way I am leaving him here And here he'll stay

KALA (spoken) Hes just a child

KERCHAK He was up in the trees Making a weapon And in time it is us He will hurt

KALA (spoken) No

KERCHAK Nothing and no one Will stop him becoming What he is And was by blood

No other way He won't come between me And those I love Believe me when I say With my body and soul This I vow

KALA (spoken) But I need him!

KERCHAK No, no other way And in spite of your pain It will be done

No matter what you say He never was or could be Be my son There is no other way

I won't let him near the rest of the tribe again

KALA I understand

KERCHAK Where are you going?

KALA To find him We'll live away from the family

KERCHAK For how long?

KALA For as long as he needs me

KERCHAK You can't. I wont be able to protect you Kala don't do this. Please.

KALA Kerchak I'm his mother

KERCHAK No other way I should have done this before Long ago And from today Though they'll think of me cruel They won't know There was no other way.

Archibald feels defeated and frustrated by possibly losing Mary to Neville and boarding school.
View Lyrics
ARCHIBALD Now I see you in the window Of a carraige, then a train. Still my mind will not accept that In your grave you must remain. I hear your voice then turn and See a stranger's form and face. Must I wander on tormented Place to place to place to place!

Where can I go that you won't find me? Why can't I find a place to hide? Why do you want to chase me, haunt me? Every step there, beside me.

Where in the world, tell me, where in the world Can I live without your love? Where on the earth, tell me where on the earth Should I stay now that you are gone?

Why did I have to meet you, love you? Why can't I rid you from my mind? Why did you have to want me? Won't you let me put my life behind me?

How in the world, tell me how in the world Can I live without your love? Why on the earth, tell me, why on the earth Should I stay now that you are gone? Now that you are...

(spoken) Lily, is that you?

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!

Some people say that today is the day, When the cold will come And never go away.

God made the Sun And the Sun made light, And the light God into made day and night.

Some people say that tonight is the night, When the bird will fly And eat away the light.

God had a dream And the dream came true, And the dream caught into Was me and you. Me and You. Me and You.

Fifty Million Years Ago, Something in the sea, Reached above the water, eagerly.

Fifty Thousand Years Ago, Something on the land, Suddenly decided it could stand.

Does this lonely road just go to nowhere? Can it be that there's no reason why? When in spite of all the strife, And the endless dying, Life keeps reaching higher for the sky.

Fifty seconds from right now, Anything could be. I'm the future Please believe in me.

Anything we need, Anything we long for, Anything we dream can come to be.

Fifty seconds from right now, Anything could be. I'm the future Please believe in me.

Anything we need, Anything we long for, Anything we dream can come to be.

Believe. You will see, It can come to be.

Tateh, a Latvian Jewish artist, has now become a director of motion pictures.
View Lyrics
TATEH: Anyone can get lucky in america. I remind myself of this everyday.

The first nickel I ever earned, I keep in a little silver frame. It's how I gave my company a name, Reminding me how very far I came!

I was a Maker of the silhouettes Who made a small improvement- A little book of silhouettes That simulated movement. Well, people seemed to like it, Soon the money's going clink! And I'm buffalo nickel photoplay, inc!

I go from Silhouettes to photos. I invent a small projector, And soon, I'm making movies And they're calling me director!

An industry is dawning And I'm standing on the brink- Mister buffalo nickel photoplay, inc!

Life shines from the shadow screen Comical, yet infinitely true. People love to see what people do, Here where everyone is someone new.

Such tales from the shadow screen! Little men who never get the breaks, Fighting on till something fin'lly takes- What a lovely movie it all makes!

Well, business is booming I'm happy to say. I just made a contract To film for pathe A series of chapters That end in suspense- Each week, see what's next For another five cents!

And I am Waking every morning Filled with such anticipation! I frame the sea, I frame the sky. And this is my vacation.

I shake your hand, I kiss your hand, I buy you all a drink! And maybe if you chance to see A movie that was made by me Remember when the name goes by That's ash-k-e-n-a-z-y

The baron, now american, Who happened once to think Of silhouette and flicker book And movies as they're meant to look And buffalo nickel photoplay, inc! Action!

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

Judas criticizes Jesus and his followers for their radical beliefs.
View Lyrics
JUDAS My mind is clearer now. At last all too well I can see where we all soon will be. If you strip away The myth from the man, You will see where we all soon will be.
Jesus!
You've started to believe The things they say of you. You really do believe This talk of God is true.
And all the good you've done Will soon get swept away. You've begun to matter more Than the things you say.
Listen Jesus I don't like what I see. All I ask is that you listen to me. And remember, I've been your right hand man all along. You have set them all on fire. They think they've found the new Messiah. And they'll hurt you when they find they're wrong.
I remember when this whole thing began. No talk of God then, we called you a man. And believe me, my admiration for you hasn't died. But every word you say today Gets twisted 'round some other way. And they'll hurt you if they think you've lied.
Nazareth, your famous son
Should have stayed a great unknown Like his father carving wood
He'd have made good. Tables, chairs, and oaken chests
Would have suited Jesus best. He'd have caused nobody harm;
No one alarm.
Listen, Jesus, do you care for your race? Don't you see we must keep in our place? We are occupied; have you forgotten how put down we are?
I am frightened by the crowd. For we are getting much too loud. And they'll crush us if we go too far. If we go too far....
Listen, Jesus, to the warning I give. Please remember that I want us to live. But it's sad to see our chances weakening with every hour. All your followers are blind. Too much heaven on their minds. It was beautiful, but now it's sour. Yes it's all gone sour.
Listen, Jesus, to the warning I give. Please remember that I want us to live. C'mon, c'mon He won't listen to me ... C'mon, c'mon He won't listen to me ...

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
I don't want to stand On the stage with a sword. I went to a pantomime once. I was bored.
I'm not a poetical sort of a person like you. When I need a poem, The streets and the gutters will do.

There's Tommy Flanagan Who lights the gas lamps- A hundred ninety lamps In Phoenix park alone. He's done it drunk For over fifty-seven years In Dublin!

And down on Henry street is Mad John Maher- Old ramblin' Johnny with a face like hammered meat! But Johnny's singin' brings a Dublin man to tears.

I don't know The words to tell you how it feels Or how to put it in a rhyme, But if you come with me you'll know

How the lamps in the park Look like god in the dark As they glow On the streets of Dublin

The dealers hawkin' and the dockers yellin' The buskers bangin' and the ragmen ringin' bells, And there's Maureen whose door is always open for All Dublin!

And Tony Kiely with his racing pigeons. It's like religon how he lives to fly those birds- He swears they travel for a hundred miles or more.

I don't know The kind of words that you might say But I can put it my own way, And if you come with me you'll know That those birds on the wing Are a beautiful thing As they blow Through the streets of Dublin

And there's music like nothin' you've heard If you know the right jukebox to play! There are glasses to raise in the praise Of survivin' the day...

Down where Miss Kitty Farrelly is pourin' whiskey And Frankie Donahughe is lighting her cigar. A smokey den where workin' men don't bring the wife...

It's the laughter of fellas with stories to tell, Men who love to get drunk and raise true fuckin' hell! Ah, you come out with me and you'll see what you're missin' in life

On the Streets of Dublin On the Streets of Dublin On the Streets of Dublin On the Streets of Dublin

Flick tells Violet to choose her own path and walk it one step at a time.
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

John Jasper introduces himself and his inner disturbed feelings.
View Lyrics
Another trifling day,
One more soul-stifling day
Of blinding pain: Boredom grinds my brain
Down to the grain.
A man could go quite mad
And not be all that bad. Consider each superb,
Disturbing urge you've ever had To curse aloud in church
Or choke each bloke who Throws a smile your way... Be that as it may.
A man could have bad dreams
And not be all he seems. Yet not be far-removed
From all the noblest of extremes. Sometimes I think that sanity
Is just a passing fad. A man could go quite mad.
Unblessed are the dull.
One ceaseless, peaceless lull. Some wondrous night, Storm-struck thund'rous light Will cast me right
A sculptor lacking arms,
A sorc'ror lacking charms, A fiend who frightens no one
For there's no one that he harms. Whose clutches clutch
At only desp'rate respite From this dim tableau!
Knowing this is so,
I hide myself in thought Where one cannot be caught And feed on dreams that contradicts each Edict I've been taught And if someday I lose my way and mind, You'll find me glad - A man could go quite,
Man could go quite, Man could go quite mad!

Antipholus of Syracuse sings as the Sergeant drags him off to jail.
View Lyrics
Come with me Where the food is free Where the landlord never comes near you Be a guest in a house of rest Where the best of fellows can cheer you.
There's your own little room So cool, not too much light Where you're one man for whom No wife who waits up at night
When day ends You have lots of friends Who will guard you well while you slumber Safe from battle and strife Safe from the wind and gale Come with me to jail

You'll never have to fetch the milk Or walk the dog at early dawn There's no -"Get up- you're late for work!" While you rest in the pearly dawn You're never bored by politics You're privileged to miss a row Of tragedies by Sophocles And diatribes by Cicero

Your brother's wife will never come On Sunday noon to bring to you Her little son who plays the lute, Her little girl to sing to you

You can commit you little "sins" And relatives won't yell "Fie!" You needn't take the annual trip To the oracle at Delphi You snore and swear and stretch and yawn In this, your strictly male house

The only way that sinners go to Heaven Is in the jail house!

You are never away
From your home in my heart; There is never a day
When you don't play a part
In a word that I say,
Or a sight that I see. You are never away And I'll never be free.

You're the smile on my face, Or a song that I sing; You're a rainbow I chase On a morning in Spring; You're a star in the lace Of a wild willow tree, In the green leafy lace Of a wild willow tree.

But tonight you're no star, Nor a song that I sing. In my arms where you are, You are sweeter than Spring;

In my arms where you are Clinging closely to me, You are lovelier by far, Than I dreamed you could be. You are lovelier, my darling Than I dreamed You could be!

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!

The more we find, the more we see, The more we come to learn The more that we explore, The more we shall return

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 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!

A fictional version of Jonathan Larson has conflicted feelings about turning 30 years old.
View Lyrics
JONATHAN Stop the clock Take time out Time to regroup Before you lose the bout
Freeze the frame Back it up Time to refocus Before they wrap it up
Years are getting shorter Lines on your face are getting longer Feel like you're treading water But the riptide's getting stronger
Don't panic, don't jump ship Can't find it, like taxes At least it happens Only once in your life
They're singing, "Happy Birthday" You just wanna lay down and cry Not just another birthday, it's 30/90 Why can't you stay 29? Hell, you still feel like you're 22 Turn 30, 1990 Bang! You're dead, what can you do? What can you do? What can you do?
MICHAEL Clear the runway Make another pass Try one more approach Before you're out of gas
JONATHAN Friends are getting fatter Hairs on you head are getting thinner Feel like a clean up batter On a team that ain't a winner
MICHAEL Don't freak out, don't strike out Can't fight it, like City Hall
JONATHAN
At least you're not alone Your friends are there, too
BOTH They're singing, "Happy Birthday" You just wish you could run away Who cares about a birthday? But 30/90, hey
Can't you be optimistic? You're no longer the ingenue Turn 30, 1990 Voom! You're passe What can you do? What can you do? What can you do?
JONATHAN
Peter Pan and Tinkerbell
Which way to Never Never Land? Emerald City's gone to hell Since the Wizard blew off his command
On the streets you hear the voices Lost children, crocodiles But you're not into Making choices, wicked witches, Poppy fields or men behind the curtains, Tiger lilies,
Ruby slippers Clock is ticking, that's for certain
They're singing, "Happy Birthday" I just wish it all were a dream It feels much more like Doomsday f**k, 30/90
Seems like I'm in for a twister I don't see a rainbow, do you? Turn 30 in the 90's
Into my hands now The ball is passed I want the spoils, but not too fast The world is calling It's now or Neverland Why can't I stay a child forever and - 30/90 30/90 30/90 30/90 30/90 30-30/90 What can I do? What can I do?

The breeze is chasing the zepher The moon is chasing the sea The bull is chasing the heifer But nobody's chasing me.

The cock is chasing the chicken The pea wakes up, pee-wee-wee The cat is taking a lickin' But nobody's taking me.

Nobody wants to own me And I object Nobody wants to phone me Even collect.

The leopard's chasing the leopard The chimp, some chap chimpanzee The sheep is chasing the shepherd But nobody's chasing me. Nobody! Nobody's chasing me.

The flood is chasing the levy The wolf is out on a spree The Ford is chasing the Chevvy But nobody's chasing me.

The bee is chasing petunias The queen is chasing the bee The worm is chasing the lettuce But nobody's chasing me.

Each night I get the mirror From off the shelf Each night I'm getting queerer, Chasing myself.

Ravel is chasing Debussy The avid chases the pee The gander's chasing the goosey But nobody's goosing me. Nobody! Nobody's chasing me.

The la is chasing the lama Papa is chasing Mama Monseur is chasing Madame But nobody's chasing moi.

The dove, each moment, is bolder The lark speaks muy petite Triston is chasing Isolde But nobody's chasing me.

Although I may be Juno, Believe it or not, I got a lot of you-know And you-know-what.

The snake, with passion, is shaking The pooch is chasing the flea The moose his love call is making But nobody's making me. Nobody! Nobody's chasing me!

Context & Lyrics


Leona, a secretary, arrives in Venice and is amazed by what the city has to offer.
View Lyrics
LEONA Someone woke up one incredible day, Had an idea and was prompted to say: "Let's build a city... where should it be? How about the middle of that sea?" Someone drew plans like a set for a stage, Someone spilled colors all over the page, Then they built it -- Cookie, you know why? Just so Leona could come here and cry.

Some people cry at hellos and farewells, Some people cry at nostalgia with bells, Some cry at weddings, some at the moon, I cry promptly Mondays at high noon. Some people cry at Vienna or Rome, This one is mine, Cookie, this one is home. Look, they even painted the damn sky Just so Leona could come here and cry.

Let's build a city... where should it be? How about the middle of that sea?

Some people cry when they see their old pals, Me, I'm a sucker for chimes and canals. Look, they even painted the damn sky Just so Leona could come here And stand like a lump Dripping wet with no shoes on At noon on a Monday And cry.

Context & Lyrics


Michelle shines on stage while trying to restore her popularity.
View Lyrics
The little old lady sat on the porch of the farm-house. The little old lady rocked back and forth and crocheted. "Oh, listen to the cricket, look at the rooster, smell the hay," I told her. "And see the pretty little egg that the hen just laid."
The little old lady took off her glasses and squinted. And how she responded literally had me floored. She said: "It's to meet someone who appreciates The beauty that nature initiates." It's sweet to hear, but me, my dear, I'm truly bored.
I miss those city lights, those sparkling city lights, Those twinkling city lights blurring my eyes. I love those city lights, the color of city sights That shine under city lights tinting the skies.
New mown hay gives me hay fever. There's the rooster, where's my cleaver? So laid back, my mind might crack, And when the thresher's up my pressure's up. City lights, oh, I long for those city lights, The bulbs of those beaming brights beckoning me there. Be there.
Take the crickets and go shove 'em, Urban crises, how I love 'em! Grime and grit and pretty city lights.
Walking lanes to pick a daisy, That could drive a person crazy. Home-made bread lies here like lead, And Polly's peach preserves-- Oh, please, my nerves!
City lights, how I long for those city lights, The bulbs of those beaming brights beckoning me there. Be there.
Sties and stables sure are smelly, Let me sniff some Kosher deli, Brightly lit by pretty city lights.
Pluck your lilies of the valley, Let me sally up some alley Dimly lit by pretty city lights.
Country air means zilch to me, I won't breathe nothing I can't see. So let me quit and hit those pretty city lights. Hit them city lights! Love them city lights!
Fairs and socials ain't no pluses, I saw more on cross-town buses Brightly lit by pretty city lights. Hold that udder and churn that butter, Me, I'd rather shoot some gutter Dimly lit by pretty city lights.
Slop those sows, go on and fill your pails, Honey, just let me plant my buns down in Bloomingdales. Yes, let me quit and hit those pretty city lights. Love them city lights!

A woman is blasting her unfaithful lover.
View Lyrics
There he goes as usual, my man Breaking my foolish heart I really don't know what to do about him I've told myself I've got to do without him

There he goes as usual, my man Tearing my heart apart He's made my life a mess I've got to do this I guess

Goodbye Joe, from here I kiss you Goodbye Joe, I hope I don't miss you

If you had been on the square And had treated me fair And we?d not had a tiff If you had not said I should go and jump right off The nearest cliff

If you had stayed off the make And you never had taken To coming home stiff If I had not smelled perfume With a nasty unfamiliar whiff

I'm gonna miss you, baby Things could've been teriff Ah, what's the diff?

If you had not had the cheek To stay out for a week Saying, "Back in a jiff" If you were not such a two-timing guy

If you weren't If you hadn't If you didn't

If you weren't If you hadn't If you didn't

But you have And you were And you went And you did And so goodbye

If I had not seen you Take Geraldine on the lake In your flat-bottomed skiff If you were not out with Sue With your arms around her bare midriff

If I had not seen you pen sexy letters To Gwen in your own hieroglyph If you had not left me home When had two seats for South Pacif

I'm gonna miss you, baby You were too darn prolif Ah, what's the diff?

If you were not such a hound Who when game was around Always picked up the sniff If you were not such a two-timing guy

If you weren't If you hadn't If you didn't

If you weren't If you hadn't If you didn't

But you were And you have And you went And you did And so, goodbye

If when I asked where you'd been You had not cliffed my chin With a beautiful biff Hey, if I had not always found purple Lipstick on your handkerchief

If you had not told me lies And then looked in my eyes With a smile beautif If when I caught you with Kate You had not said, ?It?s of no signif?

I'm gonna miss you, baby And I could get specif Ah, what's the diff?

If the best years of my life Weren't spent as your wife With no marriage certif If you were not such a two-timing guy

If you weren't If you hadn't

If you didn't If you weren't If you hadn't If you didn't

But you had And you were And you have And you went And you did

And so goodbye!

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.
