Carousel
Words by: Oscar Hammerstein II
Music: Richard Rodgers

You're A Queer One  Mister Snow
 If I Loved You
June Is Bustin' Out All Over
When The Children Are Asleep
Soliloquay
A Real Nice Clambake
Stone Cutters Cut It On Stone
What's The Use of Wondrin'
You'll Never Walk Alone



1. MISTER SNOW
CARRIE
Julie ...
Julie ...
Do you like him?
JULIE
I dunno
CARRIE
Did you like it when he talked to you today?
When he put you on the carousel, that way?
Did you like that?
JULIE
'D rather not say
CARRIE
YOU'RE A QUEER ONE, JULIE JORDAN!
YOU ARE QUIETER AND DEEPER THAN A WELL,
AND YOU NEVER TELL ME NOTHIN'
JULIE
THERE'S NOTHIN' THAT I KEER T'CHOOSE T'TELL!
CARRIE
YOU BEEN ACTIN' MOST PECULIAR!
EV'RY MORNIN' YOU'RE AWAKE AHEAD OF ME,
ALW'YS SETTIN' BY THE WINDER -
JULIE
I LIKE TO WATCH THE RIVER MEET THE SEA
CARRIE
WHEN WE WORK IN THE MILL, WEAVIN' AT THE LOOM,
Y'GAZE ABSENT-MINDED AT THE ROOF,
AND HALF THE TIME YER SHUTTLE GETS TWISTED IN THE THREADS
TILL Y'CAN'T TELL THE WARP FROM THE WOOF!
JULIE
'T'AIN'T SO!
CARRIE
YOU'RE A QUEER ONE, JULIE JORDAN!
YOU WON'T EVER TELL A BODY WHAT YOU THINK.
YOU'RE AS TIGHT-LIPPED AS AN OYSTER,
AND AS SILENT AS AN OLD SAHAIRA SPINK!
JULIE
Spinx
CARRIE
huh?
JULIE
Spinx
CARRIE
Uh-uh. Spink
JULIE
Y'spell it with an "X"
CARRIE
That's only when there's more than one. Julie, I been bustin' t'tell you somethin' lately
JULIE
Y'hev? ...
CARRIE
Reason I didn't keer t'tell you before was 'cause you didn't hev a feller of yer own. Now y'got one, I ken tell y'about mine.
JULIE
I'm glad you got a feller, Carrie.
CARRIE
HIS NAME IS MISTER SNOW,
AND AN UPSTANDIN' MAN IS HE.
HE COMES HOME EV'RY NIGHT IN HIS ROUND-BOTTOMED BOAT.
WITH A NET FULL OF HERRING FROM THE SEA.
AN ALMOST PERFECT BEAU,
AS REFINED AS A GIRL COULD WISH,
BUT HE SPENDS SO MUCH TIME IN HIS ROUND-BOTTOMED BOAT
THAT HE CAN'T SEEM TO LOSE THE SMELL OF FISH!
THE FUST TIME HE KISSED ME, THE WHIFF OF HIS CLO'ES
KNOCKED ME FLAT ON THE FLOOR OF THE ROOM,
BUT NOW THAT I LOVE HIM, MY HEART'S IN MY NOSE,
AND FISH IS MY FAV'RIT PERFUME!
LAST NIGHT HE SPOKE QUITE LOW,
AND A FAIR-SPOKEN MAN IS HE,
AND HE SAID, "MISS PIPPERIDGE. I'D LIKE IT FINE
IF I COULD BE WED WITH A WIFE.
AND, INDEED, MISS PIPPERIDGE, IF YOU'LL BE MINE,
I'LL BE YOURS FER THE REST OF MY LIFE."
NEXT MOMENT WE WERE PROMISED!
AND NOW MY MIND'S IN A MAZE,
FER ALL I KEN' DO IS LOOK FORWARD TO
THAT WONDERFUL DAY OF DAYS ...
WHEN I MARRY MISTER SNOW,
THE FLOWERS'LL BE BUZZIN' WITH THE HUM OF BEES,
THE BIRDS'LL MAKE A RACKET IN THE CHURCHYARD TREES,
WHEN I MARRY MISTER SNOW.
THEN IT'S OFF TO HOME WE'LL GO,
AND BOTH OF US'LL LOOK A LITTLE DREAMY-EYED,
A-DRIVIN' TO A COTTAGE BY THE OCEANSIDE
WHERE THE SALTY BREEZES BLOW.
HE'LL CARRY ME 'CROSS THE THRESHOLD,
AND I'LL BE AS MEEK AS A LAMB.
THEN HE'LL SET ME ON MY FEET
AND I'LL SAY KINDA SWEET

"Well Mister Snow,. here I am!"

THEN I'LL KISS HIM SO HE'LL KNOW
THAT EV'RYTHIN'LL BE AS RIGHT AS RIGHT KEN BE
A-IIVIN' IN A COTTAGE BY THE SEA WITH ME,
FOR I LOVE THAT MISTER SNOW -
THAT YOUNG, SEAFARIN', BOLD AND DARIN'
BIG, BEWHISKERED, OVER-BEARIN' DARLIN',
MISTER SNOW!
2. IF I LOVED YOU
BILLY
Say tell me somethin '- ain't you scared of me? I mean, after what that cop said about me takin money from girls.
JULIE
I ain't skeered.
BILLY
That your name? Julie? Julie somethin'?
JULIE
Julie Jordan
BILLY
YOU'RE A QUEER ONE, JULIE JORDAN.
AIN'T YOU SORRY THAT YOU DIDN'T RUN AWAY?
YOU CAN STILL GO. IF YOU WANTA -
JULIE
I RECKON THAT I KEER T'CHOOSE T'STAY.
YOU COULDN'T TAKE MY MONEY
IF I DIDN'T HEV ANY
AND IF I DON'T HEV A PENNY, THAT'S TRUE!
AND IF I DID HEV MONEY
YOU COULDN'T TAKE ANY
'CAUSE YOU'D ASK, AND I'D GIVE IT TO YOU!
BILLY
YOU'RE A QUEER ONE, JULIE JORDAN ...
AIN'T Y'EVER HAD A FELLER YOU GIVE MONEY TO?
JULIE
NO
BILLY
AIN'T Y'EVER HAD A FELLER AT ALL?
JULIE
NO
BILLY
WELL, Y'MUSTA HAD A FELLER YOU WENT WALKIN' WITH -
JULIE
YES
BILLY
WHERE'D YOU WALK?
JULIE
NOWHERE SPECIAL I RECALL
BILLY
IN THE WOODS?
JULIE
NO
BILLY
ON THE BEACH?
JULIE
NO
BILLY
DID YOU LOVE HIM?
JULIE
No. Never loved one - I told you that!
BILLY
Say, you 're a funny kid. Want to go in to town and dance maybe? Or -
JULIE
No. I have to be keerful
BILLY
Of what?
JULIE
My character. Y'see I'm never goin'to marry.
I'M NEVER GOIN' TO MARRY
IF I WAS GOIN' TO MARRY,
I WOULDN'T HEV T'BE SECH A STICKLER,
BUT I'M NEVER GOIN' TO MARRY,
AND A GIRL WHO DON'T MARRY
HES GOT TO BE MUCH MORE PERTICKLER!
BILLY
Suppose I was to say to you that I'd marry you?
JULIE
You?
BILLY
That scares you, don't it? You're thinkin what that cop said.
JULIE
No, I ain't. I never paid no mind to what he said.
BILLY
But you wouldn't marry anyone like me, would you?
JULIE
Yes, I would, if I loved you. It wouldn't make no difference what you - even if I died fer it.
BILLY
How do you know what you'd do if you loved me? Or how you'd feel ... or anythin'?
JULIE
I dunno how I know.
BILLY
Ah.
JULIE
Jest the same I know how I - how it'd be - if I loved you.
WHEN I WORKED IN THE MILL, WEAVIN' AT THE LOOM,
I'D GAZE ABSENT-MINDED AT THE ROOF,
AND HALF THE TIME THE SHUTTL'D TANGLE IN THE THREADS,
AND THE WARP'D GET MIXED WITH THE WOOF ...
IF I LOVED YOU
BILLY
But you don't.
JULIE
No, I don't ...
BUT SOMEHOW I KEN SEE
JEST EXACKLY HOW I'D BE ...
IF I LOVED YOU,
TIME AND AGAIN I WOULD TRY TO SAY
ALL I'D WANT YOU TO KNOW.
IF I LOVED YOU,
WORDS WOULDN'T COME IN AN EASY WAY -
ROUND IN CIRCLES I'D GO!
LONGIN' TO TELL YOU, BUT AFRAID AND SHY,
I'D LET MY GOLDEN CHANCES PASS ME BY,
SOON YOU'D LEAVE ME,
OFF YOU WOULD GO IN THE MIST OF DAY,
NEVER, NEVER TO KNOW
HOW I LOVED YOU -
IF I LOVED YOU.
BILLY
Well, anyway ... You don't love me. That's what you said.
JULIE
Yes ... I can smell them, can you? The blossoms.
The wind brings them down.
BILLY
Ain't much wind tonight. Hardly any.
YOU CAN'T HEAR A SOUND - NOT THE TURN OF A LEAF,
NOR THE FALL OF A WAVE, HITTIN' THE SAND.
THE TIDE'S CREEPIN' UPON THE BEACH LIKE A THIEF,
AFRAID TO BE CAUGHT STEALIN' THE LAND.
ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS I START TO WONDER WHAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT.
JULIE
AND I ALWAYS SAY TWO HEADS ARE BETTER THAN ONE, TO FIGGER IT OUT.
BlLLY
I don't need you or anyone else to help me. I got it figgered out for myself. We ain't important. What are we? A couple of specks of nothin', Look up there.
There's a helluva lot o' stars in the sky,
And the sky's so big the sea looks small,
And two little people -
You and I -
We don't count at all.
You're a funny kid. Don't remember ever meetin' a girl like you. You - are you tryin' t'get me to marry you?
JULIE
No.
BILLY
Then what's puttin' it into my head? You're different all right. Don't know what it is. You look up at me with that little kid face like - like you trusted me. I wonder what it'd be like.
JULIE
What?
BILLY
Nothin'. I know what it'd be like. It'd be awful.
KINDA SCRAWNY AND PALE, PICKIN' AT MY FOOD,
AND LOVESICK LIKE ANY OTHER GUY -
I'D THROW AWAY MY SWEATER AND DRESS UP LIKE A DUDE
IN A DICKEY AND A COLLAR AND TIE ...
IF I LOVED YOU -
JULIE
But you don't.
BILLY
No I don't.
BUT SOMEHOW I CAN SEE
JUST EXACTLY HOW I'D BE.
IF I LOVED YOU,
TIME AND AGAIN I WOULD TRY, TO SAY
ALL I'D WANT YOU TO KNOW.
IF I LOVED YOU,
WORDS WOULDN'T COME IN AN EASY WAY -
ROUND IN CIRCLES I'D GO!
LONGING TO TELL YOU, BUT AFRAID AND SHY.
I'D LET MY GOLDEN CHANCES PASS ME BY.
SOON YOU'D LEAVE ME,
OFF YOU WOULD GO IN THE MIST OF DAY,
NEVER, NEVER TO KNOW
HOW I LOVED YOU -
IF I LOVED YOU.
I'm not the kinda feller to marry anybody - even if a girl was foolish enough to want me to. I wouldn't.
JULIE
Don't worry about it - Billy.
BILLY
Who's worried?
JULIE
You're right about there bein' no wind. The blossoms are jest comin' down by theirselves. Jest their time to, I reckon.

BILLY

JIGGER
More'n you ever saw in yer life.

JIGGER
THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE ON LAND
ARE HARD TO UNDERSTAND.
WHEN YOU'RE LOOKIN' FOR FUN THEY CLAP YOU INTO JAIL!
SO I'M SHIPPIN' OFF TO SEA,
WHERE LIFE IS GAY AND FREE,
AND A FELLER CAN FLIP
A HOOK IN THE HIP OF A WHALE.
ALL

JIGGER

A CHRYSANTHEMUM SPOUT COME OUT O'THE SNOUT OF A WHALE!

7. SOLILOQUY
BILLY
I WONDER WHAT HE'LL THINK OF ME!
I GUESS HE'LL CALL ME
"THE OLD MAN."
I GUESS HE'LL THINK I CAN LICK
EV'RY OTHER FELLER'S FATHER -
WELL, I CAN!
I BET THAT HE'LL TURN OUT TO BE
THE SPIT AN' IMAGE
OF HIS DAD.
BUT HE'LL HAVE MORE COMMON SENSE
THAN HIS PUDDIN'-HEADED FATHER
EVER HAD.
I'LL TEACH HIM TO WRASSLE
AND DIVE THROUGH A WAVE,
WHEN WE GO IN THE MORNIN'S FOR OUR SWIM.
HIS MOTHER CAN TEACH HIM
THE WAY TO BEHAVE,
BUT SHE WON'T MAKE A SISSY OUT 0'HIM -
NOT HIM!
NOT MY BOY!
NOT BILL ...
Bill!

MY BOY, BILLY!
(I WILL SEE
THAT HE'S NAMED
AFTER ME,
I WILL!)
MY BOY, BILL -
HE'LL BE TALL
AND AS TOUGH
AS A TREE,
WILL BILL!
LIKE A TREE HE'LL GROW
WITH HIS HEAD HELD HIGH
AND HIS FEET PLANTED FIRM ON THE GROUND,
AND YOU WON'T SEE NOBODY DARE TO TRY
TO BOSS HIM OR TOSS HIM AROUND!
NO POT-BELLIED, BAGGY-EYED BULLY'LL BOSS HIM AROUND!
I DON'T GIVE A DAMN WHAT HE DOES,
AS LONG AS HE DOES WHAT HE LIKES.
HE CAN SIT ON HIS TAIL
OR WORK ON A RAIL
WITH A HAMMER, A-HAMMERIN' SPIKES.
HE CAN FERRY A BOAT ON THE RIVER
OR PEDDLE A PACK ON HIS BACK
OR WORK UP AND DOWN
THE STREETS OF A TOWN
WITH A WHIP AND A HORSE AND A HACK.
HE CAN HAUL A SCOW ALONG A CANAL,
RUN A COW AROUND A CORRAL,
OR MAYBE BARK FOR A CAROUSEL -
OF COURSE IT TAKES TALENT TO DO THAT WELL.

HE MIGHT BE A CHAMP OF THE HEAVYWEIGHTS
OR A FELLER THAT SELLS YOU GLUE.
OR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES -
THAT'D BE ALL RIGHT, TOO.

His Mother'd like that. But he wouldn't be President unless he wanted to be!

NOT BILL!
MY BOY, BILL-
HE'LL BE TALL
AND AS TOUGH
AS A TREE
WILL BILL!
LIKE A TREE HE'LL GROW,
WITH HIS HEAD HELD HIGH,
AND HIS FEET PLANTED FIRM ON THE GROUND,
AND YOU WON'T SEE NOBODY DARE TO TRY
TO BOSS HIM OR TOSS HIM AROUND!
NO FAT-BOTTOMED, FLABBY-FACED, POT-BELLIED,
BAGGY-EYED BASTARD'LL BOSS HIM AROUND!

AND I'M DAMNED IF HE'LL MARRY HIS BOSS'S DAUGHTER,
A SKINNY-LIPPED VIRGIN WITH BLOOD LIKE WATER,
WHO'LL GIVE HIM A PECK AND CALL IT A KISS
AND LOOK IN HIS EYES THROUGH A LORGNETTE -

Say ! Why am I takin ' on like this?

MY KID AIN'T EVEN BEEN BORN YET!

I CAN SEE HIM
WHEN HE'S SEVENTEEN OR SO
AND STARTIN' IN TO GO
WITH A GIRL.

I CAN GIVE HIM
LOTS 0'POINTERS, VERY SOUND,
ON THE WAY TO GET ROUND
ANY GIRL.
I CAN TELL HIM -

Wait a minute! Could it be -? What the hell! What if he is a girl!Bill'
Oh, Bill!
What would I do with her? What could I do for her? A bum - with no money!

YOU CAN HAVE FUN WITH A SON,
BUT YOU GOT TO BE A FATHER
TO A GIRL!

SHE MIGHTN'T BE SO BAD AT THAT -
A KID WITH RIBBONS
IN HER HAIR,
A KIND 0'NEAT AND PETITE
LITTLE TIN-TYPE OF HER MOTHER -
WHAT A PAIR!

MY LITTLE GIRL,
PINK AND WHITE
AS PEACHES AND CREAM IS SHE.
MY LITTLE GIRL
IS HALF AGAIN AS BRIGHT
AS GIRLS ARE MEANT TO BE!
DOZENS OF BOYS PURSUE HER,
MANY A LIKELY LAD
DOES WHAT HE CAN TO WOO HER
FROM HER FAITHFUL DAD.

SHE HAS A FEW
PINK AND WHITE YOUNG FELLERS OF TWO AND THREE -
BUT MY LITTLE GIRL
GETS HUNGRY EV'RY' NIGHT
AND SHE COMES HOME TO ME!

My little girl!

I GOT TO GET READY BEFORE SHE COMES!
I GOT TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT SHE
WON'T BE DRAGGED UP IN SLUMS
WITH A LOT O'BUMS -
LIKE ME!
SHE'S GOT TO BE SHELTERED AND FED, AND DRESSED
IN THE BEST THAT MONEY CAN BUY.!
I NEVER KNEW HOW TO GET MONEY,
BUTL'LL TRY -
BY GOD! I'LL TRY!
I'LL GO OUT AND MAKE IT
OR STEAL IT OR TAKE IT
OR DIE!

1. A REAL NICE CLAMBAKE
NETTIE
Dunno as I should hev' et those last four dozen clams!
GIRL
Now look here. Orrin Peasely! Jest keep your hands in yer pockets if they're so cold.

THE COMPANY WAS THE SAME
OUR HEARTS ARE WARM,
OUR BELLIES ARE FULL,
AND WE ARE FEELIN' PRIME.
THIS WAS A REAL NICE CLAMBAKE
AND WE ALL HAD A REAL GOOD TIME!
NETTIE
FUST COME CODFISH CHOWDER,
COOKED IN IRON KETTLES,
ONIONS FLOATIN' ON THE TOP,
CURLIN' UP IN PETALS!
JULIE
THROWED IN RIBBONS OF SALTED PORK.

SNOW
REMEMBER WHEN WE RAKED

OUT OF THE DRIFTWOOD FIRE?
THEY SIZZLED AND CRACKLED
AND SPLUTTERED A SONG,
FITTEN FOR AN ANGELS' CHOIR.
ALL GIRLS
FITTEN FER AN ANGELS'
FITTEN FER AN ANGELS'
FITTEN FER AN ANGELS' CHOIR!
NETTIE
WE SLIT 'EM DOWN THE BACK
AND PEPPERED 'EM GOOD,
AND DOUSED 'EM IN MELTED BUTTER -
CARRIE
THEN WE TORE AWAY THE CLAWS
AND CRACKED 'EM WITH OUR TEETH
'CAUSE WE WEREN'T IN THE MOOD TO PUTTER!
ALL
FITTEN FER AN ANGELS'

2. GERANIUMS IN THE WINDER / STONE CUTTERS CUT IT ON STONE
SNOW
Leave me, please. Leave me to my shattered dreams. They are all I hev left - memories of what didn't happen.

GERANIUMS IN THE WINDER,
HYDRANGEAS ON THE LAWN,
AND BREAKFAST IN THE KITCHEN
IN THE TIMID PINK OF DAWN,
AND YOU TO BLOW ME KISSES
WHEN I HEADED FER THE SEA -
WE MIGHT HAVE BEEN
A HAPPY PAIR OF LOVERS -
MIGHTN'T HEV WE?

AND COMIN' HOME AT TWILIGHT,
IT MIGHT HEV BEEN SO SWEET
TO TAKE MY KETCH OF HERRING
AND LAY THEM AT YOUR FEET!
I MIGHT HEV HED A BABY -
JIGGER
What?
SNOW
TO DANDLE ON MY KNEE,
BUT ALL THESE THINGS
THAT MIGHT HEV BEEN
ARE NEVER,
NEVER TO BE!

JIGGER
I NEVER SEE IT YET TO FAIL,
I NEVER SEE IT FAIL!
A GIRL WHO'S IN LOVE WITH A VIRTUOUS MAN
IS DOOMED TO WEEP AND WAIL.
STONECUTTERS CUT IT ON STONE,
WOODPECKERS PECK IT ON WOOD;
THERE'S NOTHIN' SO BAD FER A WOMAN
AS A MAN WHO THINKS HE'S GOOD!
SNOW
Nice talk!
JIGGER
MY MOTHER USED TO SAY TO ME:
"WHEN YOU GROW UP, MY SON,
I HOPE YOU'RE A BUM LIKE YER FATHER WAS,
'CAUSE A GOOD MAN AIN'T NO FUN."
JIGGER & CHORUS
STONECUTTERS CUT IT ON STONE,
WOODPECKERS PECK IT ON WOOD;
THERE'S NOTHIN' SO BAD FER A WOMAN
AS A MAN WHO THINKS HE'S GOOD!
SNOW
'TAIN'T SO
JIGGER
'TIS TOO!
SNOW & CHORUS
'TAIN'T SO!
JIGGER & CHORUS
'TIS TOO!
3. WHAT'S THE USE OF WOND'RIN'
JULIE
WHAT'S THE USE OF WOND'RIN'
IF HE'S GOOD OR IF HE'S BAD,
OR IF YOU LIKE THE WAY HE WEARS HIS HAT?
OH, WHAT'S THE USE OF WOND'RIN'
IF HE'S OR IF HE'S BAD?
HE'S YOUR FELLAR AND YOU LOVE HIM -
THAT'S ALL THERE IS TO THAT.

COMMON SENSE MAY TELL YOU
THAT THE ENDIN' WILL BE SAD
AND NOW'S THE TIME TO BREAK AND RUN AWAY
BUT WHAT'S THE USE OF WOND'RIN'
IF THE ENDIN' WILL BE SAD?
HE'S YOUR FELLAR AND YOU LOVE HIM -
THAT'S ALL THERE IS TO THAT.

SOMETHIN' MADE HIM THE WAY THAT HE IS,
WHETHER HE IS FALSE OR TRUE.
AND SOMETHIN' GAVE HIM THE THINGS THAT ARE HIS -
ONE OF THOSE THINGS IS YOU.
SO
WHEN HE WANTS YOUR KISSES
YOU WILL GIVE THEM TO THE LAD,
AND ANYWHERE HE LEADS YOU, YOU WILL WALK.
AND ANYTIME HE NEEDS YOU,
YOU'LL GO RUNNIN' THERE LIKE MAD!
YOU'RE HIS GIRL AND HE'S YOUR FELLAR -
AND ALL THE REST IS TALK.

Billy! Billy! Where you goin'?
BILLY
Where we goin'?
JIGGER
We're looking for the treasure.
JULIE
I don't want you to, Billy. Let me come with you.
JIGGER
No.
JULIE
Billy! Let me have that.
BILLY
No.
JULIE
Billy ...
BILLY
Julie ...
JULIE
Billy, you gotta let me have that.
BILLY
Julie, I ain't got no time.
JULIE
Billy!
ALL GIRLS
COMMON SENSE MAY TELL YOU
THAT THE ENDIN' WILL BE SAD
AND NOW'S THE TIME TO BREAK AND RUN AWAY
BUT WHAT'S THE USE OF WOND'RIN'
IF THE ENDIN' WILL BE SAD?
HE'S YOUR FELLAR AND YOU LOVE HIM -
THAT'S ALL THERE IS TO THAT.
4. YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE
NETTIE
WHEN YOU WALK
THROUGH A STORM
KEEP YOUR CHIN UP HIGH.
AND DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK
AT THE END
OF THE STORM
IS A GOLDEN SKY
AND THE SWEET
SILVER SONG
OF A LARK.

WALK ON
THROUGH THE WIND.
WALK ON
THROUGH THE RAIN,
THOUGH YOUR DREAMS BE TOSSED AND BLOWN,
WALK ON, WALK ON,
WITH HOPE IN YOUR HEART.
AND YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE!
YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE!
HEAVENLY FRIEND
Get up, Billy.
BILLY
Huh?
HEAVENLY FRIEND
Get up.
BILLY
Who are you?
HEAVENLY FRIEND
Shake yourself up. Got to get goin'.
BILLY
Goin'? Where?
HEAVENLY FRIEND
Never mind where. Important thing is you can't stay here.
BILLY
Julie!
HEAVENLY FRIEND
She can't hear you.
BILLY
Who decided that?
HEAVENLY FRIEND
You did. When you killed yourself.
BILLY
I see! So it's over!
HEAVENLY FRIEND
It isn't as simple as that. As long as there is one person on earth who remembers you - it isn't over.
BILLY
What are you goin' to do with me?
HEAVENLY FRIEND
We aren't going to do anything. We jest came down to fetch you - take you up to the jedge.
BILLY
Judge! Am I goin'before the Lord God Himself?
HEAVENLY FRIEND
What hev you ever done thet you should come before Him?
BILLY
So that's it. Just like Jigger said: "No supreme court for little people - just perlice magistrates"!
HEAVENLY FRIEND
Who said anythin' about -
BILLY
I tell you if they kick me around up there like they did on earth, I'm goin' to do somethin' about it! I'm dead and I got nothin' to lose. I'm goin' to stand up for my rights! I tell you I'm goin' before the Lord God Himself - straight to the top! Y'hear?
5. BALLET
BILLY
What do I have to do to see her?
STARKEEPER
Jest look and wait. The power to see her will come to you.
BILLY
Is that her? Little kid with straw-colored hair?
STARKEEPER
Pretty ain't she?
BILLY
My little girl!
BILLY
Why did you make me look?
HEAVENLY FRIEND
You said you wanted to.
BILLY
I know what she's goin' through.
STARKEEPER
Somethin' like what happened to you when you was a kid, ain't it?
BILLY
Somebody ought to help her.
6. IF I LOVED YOU (reprise)
BILLY
Julie - Julie!
LONGING TO TELL YOU,
BUT AFRAID AND SHY,
I LET MY GOLDEN CHANCES PASS ME BY.
NOW I'VE LOST YOU;
SOON I WILL GO IN THE MIST OF DAY,
AND YOU NEVER WILL KNOW
HOW I LOVED YOU,
HOW I LOVED YOU.
7. YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE (reprise)
DOCTOR
Jest keep yer faith and courage, and you'll come out all right. It's like what we used to sing every mornin' when I went to school. Mebbe you still sing it - I dunno.
"When you walk through a storm,
Keep yer chin up high -"

Know thet one?
ALL
AND DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK.
BILLY
Believe him, darling! Believe.
ALL
AT THE END OF THE STORM
IS A GOLDEN SKY
AND THE SWEET SILVER SONG
OF THE LARK.

WALK ON
THROUGH THE WIND,
WALK ON
THROUGH THE RAIN,
THOUGH YOUR DREAMS BE TOSSED AND BLOWN.
BILLY
I loved you. Julie. Know that I loved you!
ALL
WALK ON,
WALK ON,
WITH HOPE IN YOUR HEART,
AND YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE.
YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE.
