MAYBE

ANNIE
Maybe far away
Or maybe real nearby
He may be pouring her coffee
She may be straighting this tie!
Maybe in a house
All hidden by a hill
She's sitting playing piano,
He's sitting paying a bill!

Betcha they're young
Betcha they're smart
Bet they collect things
Like ashtrays, and art!
Betcha they're good --
(Why shouldn't they be?)
Their one mistake
Was giving up me!

So maybe now it's time,
And maybe when I wake
They'll be there calling me "Baby"...
Maybe.

Betcha he reads
Betcha she sews
Maybe she's made me
A closet of clothes!
Maybe they're strict
As straight as a line...
Don't really care
As long as they're mine!

So maybe now this prayer's
The last one of it's kind...
Won't you please come get your "Baby"

ANNIE AND ORPHANS
Maybe

WE'D LIKE TO THANK YOU


ALL
Today we're living in a shanty
Today we're scrounding for a meal

SOPHIE
Today I'm stealing coal for fires
Who knew i could steal?

MEN
I used to winter in the tropics

WOMEN
I spent my summers at the shore

FRED
I used to throw away the paper--

ALL
We'd like to thank you: Herber Hoover
For really showing us the way
We'd like to thank you: Herbert Hoover
You made us what we are today

Prosperity was 'round the corner
The cozy cottage built for two
In this blue heaven
That you
Gave us
Yes!

We're turning blue!
They offered us Al Smith and Hoover
We paid attention and we chose
Not only did we pay attention
We paid through the nose.

In ev'ry pt he said "a chicken"
But Herbert Hoover he forgot
Not only don't we have the chicken
We ain't got the pot!
Hey Herbie

WOMEN
You left behind a greatful nation

ALL
So, Herb, our hats are off to you
We're up to here with admiration

SOPHIE
Come down and have a little stew

ALL
Come down and share some Christmas dinner
Be sure to bring the missus too
We got no turkey for our stuffing
We'd like to thank you, Herbert Hoover
For really showing us the way
You dirty rat, you Bureaucrat, you
Made us what we are today
Come and get it, Herb!



LITTLE GIRLS


MISS HANNIGAN
Little girls
Little girls
Everywhere I turn I can see them
Little girls
Little girls

Night and day
I eat, sleep and breathe them
I'm an ordinary woman
With feelings
I'd like a man to nibble on my ear
But no man as bit
So how come I'm the mother of the year?

Little cheeks
Little teeth
Everything around me is little
If I wring
Little necks
Surely I will get an acquittal

Some women are dripping with diamonds
Some women are dripping with pearls
Lucky me! Lucky me!
Look at what I'm dripping with

Little girls
How I hate
Little shoes
Little socks
And each little sloomer
I'd have cracked
Years ago
If it weren't for my
Sense of humor
Some day
I'll step on their freckles
Some night
I'll straighten their curls
Send a flood
Send the flu
Anything that You can do
To little girls
Some day I'll land in the nut house
With all the nuts and the squirrels
There I'll stay
Until the prohibition of
Little girls.

What is it about you
You're big
You're loud
You're tough NYC
I go years without you
Then I
Can't get
Enough
Enough of the cab drivers answering back
In the language far from pure
Enough of frankfurters answering back
Brother, you know you're in NYC
Too busy
Too crazy
Too hot
Too cold
Too late
I'm sold
Again
On NYC

(spoken) Come on you slowpokes, we gotta get to the Roxy before the prices change.

I give you fair warning
Up there
In lights
I'll be
Go ask the Gershwins or Kaufman and Hart
The place they love the best
Though California pays big for their art
Their fan mail comes addressed to NYC
Tomorrow a penthouse
That's way up high
Tonight
The "Y"
Why not
It's NYC

ALL

You're standing room only
You crowd
You cramp
You're still

EASY STREET


ROOSTER

You're with a man who always wins

SOMETHING WAS MISSING


WARBUCKS
I've made me a fortune
(That fortune made ten)
Been headlined
And profiled
Again and again
But something was missing
(I never quite knew)
That something was someone --
But who?

My speeches are greeted
With thunderous acclaim
At two universities
Bearing my name
Yes, something was missing
Each timeI got through
That something was someone --
But who?

Who could that someone be?
How could she make it known?
Who would need me for me?
Need me for me alone?
he world was my oyster --
But where was the pearl?
Who dreamed I could find it
Yes something was missing --
But dreams can come true
That something
Is no one
But you

Who would need me for me ?
Need me for me alone
The world was my oyster
But where was the pearl ?
Who'd dream I would find it
In one little girl ?
Yes, something was missing
But dreams do come true
That something is no one.....but you.



I DON'T NEED ANYTHING BUT YOU


WARBUCKS AND ANNIE
Together at last!
Together for ever!
We're tying a knot,
They never can sever!

WARBUCKS
I don't need sunshine now,
To turn my skies at blue --

WARBUCKS AND ANNIE
I don't need anything but you!

WARBUCKS
You've wrapped me around
That cute little finger.
You've made life a song .....
You've made me the singer!

ANNIE
And what's the bathtub tune
You always "Bu-Bu-Boo?"

WARBUCKS
Bu-Bu-Bu
Anything but you

ANNIE
Yesterday was plain awful

WARBUCKS
You can say that again

ANNIE
Yesterday was plain awful

WARBUCKS
But that's

ANNIE
Not now

WARBUCKS AND ANNIE
That's then

ANNIE
I'm poor as a mouse,

WARBUCKS
I'm richer than Midas.

WARBUCKS AND ANNIE
But nothing on earth
Could ever divide us!
And if tomorrow, I
'm an apple seller, too--
I don't need anything but you!

SERVANTS

NEW DEAL FOR CHRISTMAS


WARBUCKS
I know the Depression's depressing

GRACE
The carols are stilled
The stored aren't filled

WARBUCKS
And the windows are minus the dressing

GRACE
The children don't grin
The Santa's are thin

GRACE AND WARBUCKS
And I've heard a terrible rumour
No goodwill no cheer

WARBUCKS
But we'll get a new deal for Christmas
This year

ANNIE AND ORPHANS
The snowflakes are frighting of falling

MOLLY
And oh, what a fix
No peppermint sticks!

WARBUCKS
And all through the land folks are bawling

And filled with despair
'Cause cupboards are bare

WARBUCKS
But Santa's got brand new assistants
There's nothing to fear
They're bringing a new deal deal for Christmas
This year.
