LONLINESS OF EVENING
IN MY OWN LITTLE CORNER
THE PRINCE IS GIVING A BALL
IMPOSSIBLE, IT'S POSSIBLE!
TEN MINUTES AGO
STEPSISTERS' LAMENT
WALTZ FOR A BALL
DO I LOVE YOU BECAUSE YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL?
WHEN YOU'RE DRIVING THROUGH THE MOONLIGHT/LOVELY NIGHT
** The Sweetest Sounds**

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

LONLINESS OF EVENING

CINDERELLA

I wake in the loneliness of sunrise
when the deep purple heaven turns blue
And start to pray, as I pray each day, that
I'll hear some word from you.


I lie in the loneliness of evening looking
out on a silver flaked sea
And ask the moon, how soon, how soon, will my love appear to me?
Will my love appear to me?



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

IN MY OWN LITTLE CORNER

CINDERELLA

I'm as mild and as meek as a mouse,
When I hear a command, I obey,
But I know of a spot in my house,
Where no one can stand in my way.

In my own little corner,
In my own little chair,
I can be whatever I want to be.

On the wing of my fancy,
I can fly anywhere
And the world will open its arms to me.

I'm a young Norweigan princess or a milkmaid;
I'm the greatest primadonna in Milan.
I'm an heiress who has always had her silk made
By her own flock of silkworms in Japan.

I'm a girl men go mad for
Love's a game I can play
With a cool and confident kind of air
Just as long as I stay in my own little corner
All alone in my own little chair.

I can be whatever I want to be.
I'm slave from Calcutta
I'm a queen in Peru
I'm a mermaid dancing upon the sea.

I'm a huntress on an African safari,
It's a dangerous type of sport, and yet, it's fun
In the night I sally forth to find my quarry
And I find I forgot to bring my gun.

I am lost in the jungle
All alone and unarmed
When I meet a lioness in her lair
And I'm glad to be back in my own little corner
All alone
In my own
Little chair

IMPOSSIBLE, IT'S POSSIBLE!

FAIRY GODMOTHER

(spoken) Cinderella?

CINDERELLA

(spoken) Who are you?

FAIRY GODMOTHER

(spoken) I'm your fairy godmother.

CINDERELLA

(spoken) How beautiful you are!

FAIRY GODMOTHER

(spoken) I'm made of all of your most beautiful dreams and hope and wishes.

CINDERELLA

(spoken) Oh, fairy godmother, I have only one wish just now -- to go to the ball. And I know it is impossible.

FAIRY GODMOTHER

(spoken) Impossible? Bah! What's a fairy godmother for?

CINDERELLA

(spoken) To make my wish come true.

FAIRY GODMOTHER

(spoken) If you wish it hard enough.

(spoken) Now, let me see. You'll need a coach and four horses and a coachman and a groom.

CINDERELLA    

(spoken) Is it possible to get those things by wishing for them?

FAIRY GODMOTHER

(spoken) Well, the sensible people of this world will say,
"Falderall and fiddle-dee-dee
And fiddle-dee-faddle-dee-foddle.
All the wishes in the world
Are poppycock and twoddle."

CINDERELLA    

(spoken) Aren't they?

FAIRY GODMOTHER

(spoken) Not always.
(spoken) The sensible people will also say,
"Falderall and fiddle-dee-dee
And fiddle-dee-faddle-dee-foodle.
All the dreamers in the world
Are dizzy in the noodle."

CINDERELLA

(spoken) And aren't they?

FAIRY GODMOTHER

(spoken) Not always.
'specially when there is someone who loves you to help you.

(spoken) Now, to work!
For a coach, I believe I see pumpkin over there. That will do very nicely.

CINDERELLA

(spoken) A pumpkin?

FAIRY GODMOTHER

(spoken) Mmm... I see you have four pet mice in a cage. They'll do nicely for the horses.

CINDERELLA

(spoken) Mice? For horses?

FAIRY GODMOTHER

(spoken) Uh-hmm...Now, let me see...Something's peering at us from under the shrub. Oh, yes! It's a fine, white rat with whiskers, and his brother. They'll do very nicely for the coachman and the groom.

CINDERELLA

(spoken) Dear fairy godmother, it all seems so impossible.

FAIRY GODMOTHER

Impossible
For a plain yellow pumpkin to become a golden carriage.
Impossible
For a plain country bumpkin and a prince to join in marriage.

And four white mice will never be four white horses.
Such faldera and fiddle-dee-dee, of courses.
Impossible!

But the world is full of zanys and fools
Who don't believe in sensible rules.
And won't believe what sensible people say
And because these daft and dewy-eyed dopes
Keep building up impossible hopes.
Impossible
Things are happening everyday!

CINDERELLA

Impossible

FAIRY GODMOTHER

Impossible!

CINDERELLA

Impossible

FAIRY GODMOTHER

Impossible!

CINDERELLA   

(spoken) And remember how very, very hard I am wishing.

FAIRY GODMOTHER

(sung)

Impossible
For a plain yellow pumpkin to become a golden carriage.
Impossible
For a plain country bumpkin and a prince to join in marriage.

And four white mice will never be four white horses.

CINDERELLA

They will!

FAIRY GODMOTHER

Such faldera and fiddle-dee-dee, of courses.
Impossible!

CINDERELLA

But the world is full of zanys and fools
Who don't believe in sensible rules.
And won't believe what sensible people say

BOTH

And because these daft and dewy-eyed dopes
Keep building up impossible hopes.
Impossible
Things are happening everyday!

FAIRY GODMOTHER

(spoken) Look!

CINDERELLA

(spoken) Oh! Oh! It is a golden coach! And four white horses! And a coachman! And a groom!

FAIRY GODMOTHER

(spoken) You are going to the ball...

CINDERELLA

(spoken) Oh! Oh! My clothes...

FAIRY GODMOTHER

(spoken) Oh dear, how thoughtless of me... There!

CINDERELLA

(spoken) Oh, fairy godmother, how beautiful! I am dressed like a princess.

FAIRY GODMOTHER

(spoken) And here are your slippers.

CINDERELLA

(spoken) They're made of glass?

FAIRY GODMOTHER

(spoken) Put them on.

CINDERELLA

(spoken) They fit perfectly.

FAIRY GODMOTHER

(spoken) Now, you are ready for the ball!

(spoken) But there is one thing you must remember: You must leave before the stroke of mindnight, for the magic will last no longer.

CINDERELLA

(spoken) I will remember. Oh, fairy godmother, how wonderful it all is!

(sung)

It's possible
For a plain yellow pumpkin to become a golden carriage.
It's possible
For a plain country bumpkin and a prince to join in marriage.

FAIRY GODMOTHER

And four white mice are easily turned to horses.
Such faldera and fiddle-dee-dee, of courses.
Quite possible!

BOTH

It's possible!

CINDERELLA

For the world is full of zanys and fools
Who don't believe in sensible rules.
And won't believe what sensible people say

BOTH

And because these daft and dewy-eyed dopes
Keep building up impossible hopes.
Impossible
Things are happening everyday!

CINDERELLA

It's possible.

FAIRY GODMOTHER

It's possible.

CINDERELLA

It's possible.

FAIRY GODMOTHER

It's possible.

CINDERELLA

It's possible.

FAIRY GODMOTHER

It's possible.

BOTH

It's possible!

TEN MINUTES AGO

PRINCE

Ten minutes ago I saw you
I looked up when you came through the door
My head started reeling
You have me the feeling
The room had no ceiling or floor.

Ten minutes ago I met you
And we murmured our "how do you do?"s
I wanted to ring out the bells and
Fling out my arms and to sing out the news.

I have found her -- she's an angel
With the dust of the stars in her eyes.
We are dancing, we are flying
And she's taking me back to the skies.

In the arms of my love, I'm flying
Over mountain and meadow and glen
And I like it so well
That for all I can tell
I may never come down again
I may never come down to Earth again.

CINDERELLA

Ten minutes ago I saw you
You looked up when I came through the door
My head started reeling
You have me the feeling
The room had no ceiling or floor.

Ten minutes ago I met you
And we murmured our "how do you do?"s
I wanted to ring out the bells and
Fling out my arms and to sing out the news.

PRINCE

I have found her

CINDERELLA

I have found him
He's the light of the stars in my eyes.

PRINCE

We are dancing,

CINDERELLA

We are flying

PRINCE

And she's taking me back to the skies.

CINDERELLA

In the arms of my love, I'm flying
Over mountain and meadow and glen

PRINCE

And I like it so well
That for all I can tell
I may never come down again

BOTH

I may never come down to Earth again.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

STEPSISTERS LAMENT

BOTH

Why would a fellow want a girl like her,
A frail and fluffy beauty?
Why can't a fellow ever once prefer
A solid girl like me?

ESMERALDA

She's a frothy little bubble
With a flimsy kind of charm.
And with very little trouble
I could break her little arm

BOTH

Why would a fellow want a girl like her,
So obviously unusual?
What can't a fellow ever once prefer
A usual girl like me?

ESMERALDA

Her cheeks are a pretty shade of pink

ESMERALDA

But not any pinker than a rose is

PRUNELLA

Her skin may be delicate and soft

ESMERALDA

But not any softer than a dozies

PRUNELLA

Her neck is no whiter than a swan

ESMERALDA

She's only dainty as a daisy

PRUNELLA

She's only as graceful as a bird

BOTH

So why is the fellow going crazy?

Oh, why would a fellow want a girl like her,
A girl who's merely lovely?
Why can't a fellow ever once prefer
A girl who's merely me?

PRUNELLA

Me?

ESMERALDA

You?

PRUNELLA

Me!

ESMERALDA

You?
Us

PRUNELLA

What?

(In an annoying, dainty way)

Her cheeks are a pretty shade of pink
But not any pinker than a rose is
Her skin may be delicate and soft
But not any softer than a dozies

(Voice getting higher and higher until it cracks)

A dozies...
A dozies...
A dozies...
A dozies...

ESMERALDA

(spoken) Shut up!

Her neck is no whiter than a swan's
She's only as dainty as a daisy

PRUNELLA

A daisy...

ESMERALDA

She's only as graceful as a bird

PRUNELLA

Ah-a-a-a....

BOTH

So why is the fellow going crazy?

Oh, why would a fellow want a girl like her,
A girl who's merely lovely?
Why can't a fellow ever once prefer
A girl who's merely me?

What's the matter with the man?
What's the matter with the man?
What's the matter with the...
Man!!?


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WALTZ FOR A BALL

(Waltz music precedes the following verse)

CHORUS

Ten minutes ago I saw you
I looked up when you came through the door
My head started reeling
You have me the feeling
The room had no ceiling or floor.

Ten minutes ago I met you
And we murmured our "how do you do?"s
I wanted to ring out the bells and
Fling out my arms and to sing out the news.

I have found her -- she's an angel
With the dust of the stars in her eyes.
We are dancing, we are flying
And she's taking me back to the skies.

In the arms of my love, I'm flying
Over mountain and meadow and glen
And I like it so well
That for all I can tell
I may never come down again
I may never come down to Earth again.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DO I LOVE YOU BECAUSE YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL?

PRINCE

Do I love you because you're beautiful
Or are you beautiful because I love you?

Am I making believe I see in you
A girl too lovely to
Be really true?

Do I want you because you're wonderful
Or are you wonderul because I want you?

Are you the sweet invention of a lover's dream
Or are you really as beautiful as you seem?

CINDERELLA

Am I making believe I see in you a man too
perfect to be really true?
Do I want you because you're wonderful, or
are you wonderful because I want you?

BOTH

Are you the sweet invention of a lover's
dream or are you really as wonderful as
you seem?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHEN YOU'RE DRIVING THROUGH THE MOONLIGHT/LOVELY NIGHT

CINDERELLA

I imagine.. I imagine.. When you're driving
through the moonlight on a highway when
through the moonlight to a dance you are
breathless with a wild anticipation of
adventure and excitement and romance
Then at last you see the towers of the
palace silhouetted on the sky above the
park and below them is a row of lighted
windows like a lovely diamond necklace in
the dark

ESMERALDA

It looks that way


PRINCE

The way you say
EVIL STEPMOTHER

She talks as if she knows.

CINDERELLA

I do not know what these things are, so I only just suppose.
I suppose that when you come into the ballroom and the room
itself is floating on the air.
If you're suddenly confronted by his highness, you are frozen like a statue
on the stair. You're afraid he'll hear the
way your heart is beating and you know you
mustn't make the first advance. You are seriously
thinking of retreating then you seem to hear
him asking you to dance
You make a bow, a timid bow, and shyly answer yes


EVIL STEPMOTHER

How would you know that this is so?

CINDERELLA

I do know more than guess, I do know more than guess

He is tall

ESMERALDA

And straight as a lass


CINDERELLA

His eyes


PRUNELLA

Can melt you with a glance


CINDERELLA

Yes I can picture the whole thing, how you start thinking...


ESMERELDA

Start thinking what?

CINDERELLA

Thinking how wonderful it all is

EVIL STEPMOTHER

How wonderful what all is?

CINDERELLA

Everything

EVIL STEPMOTHER

Enough of this nonsense.
Esmerelda, Prunella, upstairs both of you and get your sleep!


PRUNELLA

Yes, ma'am

EVIL STEPMOTHER

Cinderella, here is your broom GET TO WORK!!!

CINDERELLA

I don't mind sweeping.
This night is mine and no one
and nothing can take it from me.
A lovely night,
a lovely night,
a finer night you'll know you'll never see.
You meet your prince,
a charming prince
as charming as a prince will ever be.
The stars in the hazy heaven tremble above you
while he is whispering,
"Darling, I love you."
You say goodbye,
away you fly
but on your lips you'll keep a kiss
all your life you'll dream of this
lovely,
lovely night.
A lovely night,
a lovely night,
a finer night you'll know you'll never see.
You meet your prince,
a charming prince
as charming as a prince will ever be.
The stars in the hazy heaven tremble above you
while he is whispering,
"Darling, I love you."
You say goodbye,
away you fly
but on your lips you'll keep a kiss
all your life you'll dream of this
lovely,
lovely night.
You say goodbye,
away you fly
but on your lips you'll keep a kiss
all your life you'll dream of this
lovely,
lovely,lovely night.


** The sweetest sounds I'll ever hear

The sweetest sounds i'll ever hear
Are still inside my head
The kindest words i'll ever know, are waiting to be said
The most entrancing sight of all, is yet for me to see
And the dearest love in all the world
Is waiting somewhere for me
Is waiting somewhere, somewhere for me

The sweetest sounds i'll ever hear
Are still inside my head
The kindest words i'll ever know, are waiting to be said
The most entrancing sight of all, is yet for me to see
And the dearest love in all the world
Is waiting somewhere for me
Is waiting somewhere, somewhere for me

The most entrancing sight of all, is yet for me to see
And the dearest love in all the world
Is waiting somewhere for me
Is waiting somewhere, somewhere for me
