Context & Lyrics


Juno laments that she cannot find love in Olympus or Earth.
View Lyrics
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!

Rosemary, a young secretary, dreams of a future living with Finch, a window cleaner.
View Lyrics
New Rochelle, New Rochelle, That's the place where the mansion will be For me and the darling bright young man I've picked out for marrying me.
He'll do well, I can tell. So it isn't a moment too soon To plan on my life in New Rochelle, The wife of my darling tycoon.
I'll be so happy to keep his dinner warm While he goes onward and upward; Happy to keep his dinner warm Till he comes wearily home from down town.
I'll be there waiting until his mind is clear While he looks through me, right through me; Waiting to say, "Good evening, dear. I'm pregnant. What's new with you from down town?"
Oh, to be loved by a man I respect; To bask in the glow of his perfectly understandable neglect. Oh, to belong in the aura of his frown--darling busy frown. Such heaven--
Wearing the wifely uniform While he goes onward and upward. Happy to keep his dinner warm Till he comes wearily home from down town.

Sonia thinks that she and Vernon should get to know each other personally so that their music careers can break out.
View Lyrics
If he really knew me If he really truly knew me Maybe he would see the other side of me I seldom see

If there were no music If the melodies stopped playing Would he be the kind of man I’d want to see tonight

Does the man make the music Or does the music make this man And is he everything I thought he’d be

If he really knew me If he’d take the time to understand Maybe he could find me The part I left behind me Maybe he’d remind me Of who I am

Doria, a pageant contestant, dreams of visiting Disneyland in the future.
View Lyrics
Hot Sunday night, I guess the folks were busy fighting Joe'd already left home, eleven years old on my own feeling nothing but lonely
There's nothing to do, there's nothing out there but the traffic Down on state ninety-three So I'd sit through the night by our old black and white TV That's where I saw it That's when I heard it Calling, Calling me
Disneyland, Magic Kingdom Disneyland, I close my eyes real tight Wishing hard I might, wishing hard I may Find my way to Disneyland, Gotta get to Disneyland, on a western breeze Magic carpet please, carry me away

I know you're gonna say the trees are paper mache It's done with mirrors, the magic there Each little birds full of springs, you press a button it sings Recorded music in the air They've had the mountain refaced it's only plywood and paste Go on say it! I'll turn around and tell you I don't care I don't... care

I will live in Disneyland Make my home in Disneyland Maybe it's all fake, That's a chance I'll take It's perfectly ok Someone give me Disneyland Take me there! To Disneyland And when I get to Disneyland I'll stay

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.

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.

Hard to tell you how I feel Everything is so unreal Lord, this life is a hard thing to get to

Saw my shadow on the wall Saw my love nowhere at all Saw my life as a hard thing to get through

When you're born, they carry you When you're gone, they bury you In between, you're on your own Hard to stand there All alone

Someone crying down the hall Dying cries, they tell it all Lord, this life is a hard thing to live And harder, still, To leave

Charity recognizes the value in Barnum's point of view on life.
View Lyrics
(Spoken)
It’s your own fault Charity Barnum.
If you'd only asked a few logical questions before you married him, You would have put a healthy distance between yourself and a fella Who wants to give the whole world a paint job. Which I’m not so sure it needs...
(Sung) The colors of my life Are softer than a breeze. The silver gray of eiderdown, The dappled green of trees. The amber of a wheat field, The hazel of a seed, The crystal of a raindrop, Are all I'll ever need. Your reds are much too bold, In gold I find no worth.
I'll fill my days with sage and brown The colors of the earth, And if from by my side My love should roam, The colors of my life Will shine a quiet light To lead him home.

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!

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.

Agnes questions her place in life now that her children are independent.
View Lyrics

This is very strange. Everything is changing. Suddenly a door Can slam.

This is very strange. Suddenly we're strangers. And I start to wonder Who I am.

What is a woman? What is she made of? Why is a woman afraid of Not being in love?

What is a woman? What does she long for? Why is it wrong for a woman To be all alone?

Young girls are April With rainbows and changes. One day they grow up And April is over forever

To be a woman Means being lonely. That's why a woman is only Alive when in love.

Young girls are April With rainbows and changes. One day they grow up And April is over forever.

To be a woman Means being lonely. That's why a woman Is only alive When in love.

Heather reveals her feelings forJoe in a song she wrote for him.
View Lyrics
Love is rare, life is strange Nothing lasts, people change

Every time I lost another lover I call up my old friend And I say let's get together I'm under the weather Another love has come to an end

And he listens as I tell him my sad story And wonders at my taste in men And we ponder why I do it And the pain of getting through it And he laughs and says, "You'll do it again"

But we sit in a bar and talk till two About life and love as old friends do And tell each other what we've been through Our love is rare, and life is strange Nothing lasts, and people change

And I ask him if his life is ever lonely And if he ever feels despair And he says he's learned to love it 'Cause that's really all part of it And it helps him feel the good time when they're there

Yes, we sit in a bar and talk till two About life and love as old friends do And tell each other what we've been through Our love is rare, and life is strange Nothing lasts, and people change

And we wonder if I live with any lovers Or spend my life alone And the bartender is dozing And it's getting time for closing So we figured that I'll go out on my own

But we'll meet the year we're 62 And travel the world as old friends do And tell each other what we've been through Our love is rare, and life is strange Nothing lasts, and people change

Love is rare, life is strange Nothing lasts, people change Old friend

A mother has memories of her son playing the piano.
View Lyrics
I had a son He was one of a kind Son of a gun We were too intertwined

I look damn good in a hat My black dress hides the fact I don't want sympathy He was here and now he's gone The music still plays on I see the keys And I freeze No surprise This is how he Thinks I'll be When he dies

I'll be gracious and aloof Or I'll climb on the roof Shouting obscenities He was here and now he's gone The music still plays on

The music still plays on And on and on and on Loud and fast and clear The music still plays on And on and on and on Even though you're not here My dear

Married too young I was brash, I was bold Married too young And divorced far too old

Husband sleeker than a horse He rears and flies off course I liked his pedigree Love is here and then it's gone The music still plays on

The music still plays on And on and on and on As my men depart The music still plays on And on and on and on Transmitted through my foolish heart

So, stay away I'm okay, I'm ahead What came to pass Once and as one is dead

Love is stupid and it bleeds It satisfies my needs I think it's wonderful Once it was wonderful Love is here and then it's gone The music still plays on They were here and now their gone The music still plays on And on and on

Grace explains that she doesn't want young people becoming millworkers because of the physical demands.
View Lyrics
Now my grandfather was a sailor, He blew in off the water My father was a farmer I, his only daughter, Took up with a no-good millworking man from Massachusetts Who dies from too much whiskey And leaves me these three faces to feed

Millwork ain't easy; mill-work ain't hard Millwork, it ain't nothing but an awful boring job I'm waiting for a day dream To take me through the morning And put me in my coffee break Where I can have a sandwich and remember

Then it's me and my machine For the rest of the morning For the rest of the afternoon And the rest of my life

Now my mind begins to wander To the days back on the farm I can see my father smiling at me, Swingin' on his arm I can hear my grand-dad's stories Of the storms out on Lake Erie Where vessels and cargos and fortunes And sailor's lives were lost

Yes, but it's my life has been wasted, And I have been the fool To let this manufacture use my body for a tool. I can ride home in the evening, Staring at my hands Swearing by my sorrow that a young girl Ought to stand a better chance

So may I work the mills Just as long as I am able And never meet the man whose Name is on the label

It be me and my machine For the rest of the morning For the rest of the afternoon And the rest of my life

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!

View Lyrics
It's a lazy afternoon And the beetle bugs are zooming And the tulip trees are blooming And there's not another human in view but us two

It's a lazy afternoon And the farmer leaves his reaping In the meadow cows are sleeping And the speckled trouts stop leaping up stream

As we dream A far pink cloud hangs over the hill Unfolding like a rose If you hold my hand and sit real still You can hear the grass as it grows

It's a hazy afternoon And I know a place that's quiet 'Cept for daisies running riot And there's no one passing by it to see Come spend this lazy afternoon with me

Goodbye my love. God bless you. And I suppose, Bless America, too.
You have places to discover, Oceans to conquer, You need to know I'll be there at the window While you go on your way. I accept that.
But, what of the people Who stay where they're out, Planted like flowers with roots underfoot.
I know some of those people Have hearts that would rather Go Journeying On the sea.
Tell me, What of the people Whose boudaries chafe, Who marry so bravely And end up so safe.
Tell me how to be someone Whose heart can explore While still staying here.
Let this be the year We both travel... Goodbye, my love Journey on.

When I was very young, I had a perfect life. My Pa a perfect husband and my Ma a perfect wife. And everyday my life went by so perfectly? I made a perfect plan, I dreamed some perfect dreams. But now I look around, my dreams are splitting at the seams! I made one big decision and now look at me? When I do something wrong I do it perfectly?

My big mistake, Roping you in. I got my wish, Now I can't win. I thought once I caught you you'd quit your roamin' But I'm the one who's caught in a world I'm not at home in!

My big mistake, Thinking you'd change. Fancyin' life Home on the range. 'Cause I like days, I'll carefully reckon You live life from second to second Yet just touch me, and there's no other choice I'd make I love my big mistake!

I like days, I'll carefully reckon You live life from second to second Yet just touch me, and there's no other choice I'd make? I love my big mistake!

Fosca fantasizes about Giorgio writing a letter to her.
View Lyrics
GIORGIO (spoken) Fosca, it will be light soon, I should be going

FOSCA (spoken) Would you do me a great favor before you leave? Would you write a letter for me?

GIORGIO (spoken) Certainly

FOSCA (spoken) My dearest Fosca... (Giorgio stops writing and looks at her, annoyed.) Please (Giorgio resumes writing.)

GIORGIO (spoken) "My dearest Fosca"

FOSCA I wish I could forget you Erase you from my mind But ever since I met you I find, I cannot leave the thought of you behind That doesn't mean I love you...

GIORGIO That doesn't mean I love you...

FOSCA I wish that I could love you...

I know that I've upset you I know I've been unkind I wanted you to vanish from sight But now I see you in a different light And though I cannot love you I wish that I could love you

For now I'm seeing love Like none I've ever known A love as pure as breath, as permanent as death Implacable as stone A love that, like a knife, has cut into a life I wanted left alone A love I may regret But one I can't forget

I don't know how I let you So far inside my mind But there you are and there you will stay How could I ever wish you away? I see now I was blind And should you die tomorrow Another thing I see: Your love will live in me

(spoken) I remain... Your Giorgio

Lisa, a homeless woman asks for money.
View Lyrics
Pennies or nickels or dimes. We live in perilous times. I don't ask you to treat me nice I'm not asking for pleasant conversation. I'm not asking for paradise. All I'm asking for is change.

Hate me but don't kick my shins. I'm where your kindness begins. Please, folks, do not spend time with me. I won't ask you to treat me like your mother. I'm not asking for sympathy All I'm asking for is change.

Change the government, Kill the mayor. It's not fair how lives evaporate Change the system That made us what we are I don't ask for hugs. Just need money to by more drugs And if you folks pay, I'll go away.

People walk by me with glee. I am what they'll never be. I don't ask you to tip your hat. I don't ask that you notice what I'm wearing. I could care less for things like that. All I'm asking for is change. Change. Change. Change.

Pennies or nickels or dimes We live in perilous times.

Berthe, Pippin's grandmother, reminds him to worry less and live a little.
View Lyrics
BERTHE When you are as old as I, my dear And I hope that you never are You will woefully wonder why, my dear Through your cataracts and catarrh You could squander away or sequester A drop of a precious year For when your best days are yester The rest'er twice as dear....
What good is a field on a fine summer night If you sit all alone with the weeds? Or a succulent pear if with each juicy bite You spit out your teeth with the seeds? Before it's too late stop trying to wait For fortune and fame you're secure of For there's one thing to be sure of, mate: There's nothing to be sure of!
Oh, it's time to start livin' Time to take a little from this world we're given Time to take time, cause spring will turn to fall In just no time at all....
I've never wondered if I was afraid When there was a challenge to take I never thought about how much I weighed When there was still one piece of cake
Maybe it's meant the hours I've spent Feeling broken and bent and unwell But there's still no cure sole heaven-sent As the chance to raise some hell Everybody....
ALL Oh, it's time to start livin' Time to take a little from this world we're given Time to take time, cause spring will turn to fall In just no time at all....
BERTHE
Now, Sages tweet that age is sweet Good deeds and good work earns you laurels But what could make you feel more obsolete Than being noted for your morals?
Give me a man who is handsome and strong Someone who's stalwart and steady Give me a night that's romantic and long And give me a month to get ready
Now I could waylay some aging roue And persuade him to play in some cranny But it's hard to believe I'm being led astray By a man who calls me granny
ALL Oh, it's time to start livin' Time to take a little from this world we're given Time to take time, for spring will turn to fall In just no time at all....
BERTHE So when the drearies do attack And a siege of the sads begins I just throw these regal shoulders back And lift these noble chins
Here is a secret I never have told Maybe you'll understand why I believe if I refuse to grow old I can stay young till I die
Now, I've known the fears of sixty-six years I've had troubles and tears by the score But the only thing I'd trade them for Is sixty-seven more...
ALL Oh, it's time to start livin' Time to take a little from this world we're given Time to take time, for spring will turn to fall In just no time at all....
BERTHE Oh, it's time to start livin' Time to keep takin' from this world we're given You are my time, so I'll throw off my shawl And watching your flings be flung all over Makes me feel young all over
ALL In just no time at all!

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

Context & Lyrics


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.

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

Context & Lyrics


When Mame discovers that her nephew Patrick has married a debutante from a bigoted family, she wonders what went wrong.
View Lyrics
MAME Where is that boy with the bugle? My little love was always my big romance; Where's that boy with the bugle? And why did I ever buy him those damn long pants?
Did he need a stronger hand? Did he need a lighter touch? Was I soft or was I tough? Did I give enough? Did I give too much?
At the moment when he needed me, Did I ever turn away? Would I be there when he called, If he walked into my life today.
Were his days a little dull? Were his nights a little wild? Did I overstate my plan? Did I stress the man? And forget the child. And there must have been a million things. That my heart forgot to say. Would I think of one or two, If he walked into my life today.
Should I blame the times I pampered him, Or blame the times I bossed him; What a shame! I never really found the boy, Before I lost him.
Were the years a little fast? Was his world a little free? Was there too much of a crowd? All too lush and loud and not enough for me. Though I'll ask myself my whole life long, What went wrong along the way; Would I make the same mistakes If he walked into my life today? If that boy with the bugle, If he walked into my life today.

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."

GIBBON Turn back, O man Forswear thy foolish ways Old now is earth And none may count her days Da da da da da
Yet thou, her child Whose head is crowned with flames Still will not hear Thine inner God proclaims
Turn back, O man Turn back, O man Turn back, O man Forswear thy foolish ways (See ya later I'm going to the front of the thee-AY-ter)
Earth might be fair And all men glad and wise Age after age their tragic empires rise
Da da da da da
Built while they dream And in that dreaming weep Would man but wake From out his haunted sleep
Turn back, O man... Turn back, O man... Turn back, O man... Forswear thy foolish ways
JESUS Earth shall be fair And all her people one Not till that hour Shall God's whole will be done
Now, even now Once more from earth to sky Peels forth in joy Man's old undaunted cry Earth shall be fair And all her people one
GIBBON C'mere Jesus, I got something to show ya!
CHORUS Turn back, oh man Forswear thy foolish ways! Old now is earth And none may count her days
Yet thou, her child Whose head is crowned with flames Still will not hear Thine inner God proclaims
Turn back, oh man Turn back, oh man Turn back, oh man Forswear thy foolish ways!
GIBBON Play it honey!

Anyone can whistle, That's what they say- Easy. Anyone can whistle Any old day- Easy. It's all so simple: Relax, let go, let fly. So someone tell me why can't I?
I can dance a tango, I can read Greek- Easy. I can slay a dragon Any old week- Easy. What's hard is simple. What's natural comes hard.
Maybe you could show me How to let go, Lower my guard, Learn to be free. Maybe if you whistle, Whistle for me.

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.

I hear a bird, Londonderry bird, It well may be he's bringing me a cheering word. I hear a breeze, a River Shanon breeze, It well may be it's followed me across the seas. Then tell me please

How are things in Glocca Morra? Is that little brook still leaping there? Does it still run down to Donny cove? Through Killybegs, Kilkerry and Kildare?

How are things in Glocca Morra? Is that willow tree still weeping there? Does that lassie with the twinklin' eye Come smilin' by and does she walk away,

Sad and dreamy there not to see me there? So I ask each weepin' willow and each brook along the way, And each lass that comes a-sighin' too ra lay How are things in Glocca Morra this fine day?

Juno laments that she cannot find love in Olympus or Earth.
View Lyrics
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!
