Crazy For You
ACT I

K-RA-ZY FOR YOU

BOBBY

Let me give you the low down:
I'm k-ra-zy for you.
When it comes to a show down -
I'm k-ra-zy for you.
And so though love may not inspire my lingo
Still it's making my heart go
Bango! Bingo!
Let me give you the low down
I'm k-ra-zy for -
you.


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

I CAN'T BE BOTHERED NOW  

BOBBY

Bad news go 'way!
Call 'round some day
In March or May -
I can't be bothered now.
My bonds and shares
May falI downstairs -
Who cares, who cares?
I'm dancing and I can't be bothered now!
I'm up among the stars;
On earthly things I frown
I'm throwing off the bars
That held me down.
I'll pay the piper
When times are riper.
Just now I shan't -
Because you see I'm dancing and I can't -
be bothered now!

Music is the magic
That makes ev'rything sunshiny
Dancing makes my troubles all seem tiny
When I m dancing I don't care
If this old world stops turning,
Or if my bank is burning,
Or even if Rumania
Wants to figh Albania!
I'm not upset, and I refuse to fret.

THE GIRLS

He's not upset
(phone rings)
And he'll refuse to fret.
(phone rings)
Hello!
Bad news go 'way!
Call 'round some day
In March or May -
He can't be bothered now.
His bonds and shares
May fall downstairs -
Who cares, who cares?
He's dancing and he can't be bothered now!

BOBBY

I can't be bothered now!

THE GIRLS

He's dancing watch him shine,
You'll have to hold the Iine
He'll pay the piper
When times are riper.
Just now, he shan't -

BOBBY

Because you see I'm dancing...(phone rings)  
Because you see I'm dancing...(phone rings)  
Because you see I'm dancing...

THE GIRLS

Bad news, go away
Call 'round someday
In March or May -
Who cares about his shares
That falI downstairs
Who cares, who cares
Who cares, who cares
He can't be bothered
Won't be bothered
Shan't be bothered
Can't be bothered now
Not now!
Not now!
He can't be bothered...
Now!
Goodbye!!


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

BIDIN' MY TIME

MINGO, MOOSE AND SAM

I'm bidin' my time,
'Cause that's the kinda guy I'm.
While other folks grow dizzy
I keep busy
Bidin' my time
Next year, next year,
Somethin's bound to happen;
Bound to happen
This year, this year,
I'll just keep on nappin'
And bidin' my time,
'Cause that's the kinda guy I'm.
There's no regrettin'
When I'm settin'
Bidin' my time.


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

THINGS ARE LOOKING UP

BOBBY

Things are looking up!
I've been looking the landscape over
And it's covered with four leaf clover,
Oh things are looking up
Since love looked up at me.
Bitter was my cup,
But no more will I be the mourner,
For I've centainly turned the corner.
Oh things are looking up
Since love looked up at me.
See the sunbeams!
Ev'ry one beams
Just because of you.
Love's in session
And my depression
Is unmistakably through.
Things are looking up!
It's a great little world we live in!
Oh I'm happy as a pup
Since love looked up -
Oh I'm happy as a pup
Since love looked up at me!!


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

SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER ME

POLLY

There's a saying old
Says that love is blind -
Still we're often told,
"Seek and ye shalI find."
So I'm going to seek
A certain lad I've had in mind.
Looking everywhere,
Haven't found him yet;
He's the big affair
I cannot forget.
Only man I ever
Think of with regret.
I'd like to add his initials to my monogram.
Tell me, where is the shepherd for this lost lamb.
There's a somebody I'm longing to see
I hope that he
Turns out to be
Someone who'll watch over me.
I'm a little lamb who's lost in the wood.
I know I could
Always be good
To one who'll watch over me.
Although he may not be the man some
Girls think of as handsome
To my heart he carries the key.
Won't you telI him please to put on some speed -
Follow my lead -
Oh! How I need
Someone to watch over me.
Someone to watch over me.


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

COULD YOU USE ME?

BOBBY

Have some pity on an Easterner;
Show a little sympathy.
No one possibly could be sterner
Than you have been with me.
There's a job that I'm applying for -
Let me put it to you thus:
It's a partnership I'm dying for -
Mr. and Mrs. Us.
Before you file it on the shelf
Let me telI you of myself:

Oh, I'm the chappie
To make you happy;
I'll tie your shoes-ies
And chase your blues-ies;
Oh, lady would you -
Oh, telI me, could you use me?

POLLY

No night Iife for you;
The birds would bore you;
The cows won't know you;
A horse would throw you;
You silly man, you,
To ask me, "Can you use me?"

BOBBY

Do you realize what a good man
You're getting in me?
I'm no Elk or Mason or Woodman
Who gets home at three.

POLLY

Your ties are freakish;
Your knees are weakish;
Go back to flappers
And high-balI lappers.
Though you can use me
I most certainly can't use you!


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

SHALL WE DANCE?

BOBBY

Drop that long face!
Come on, have your fling!
Why keep nursing the blues?
If you want this old world on a string,
Put on your dancing shoes -
Stop wasting time!
Put on your dancing shoes -
Watch your spirits climb.

Shall we dance, or keep on moping?
Shall we dance, and walk on air?
Shall we give into despair -
Or shall we dance with never a care?
Hey!
Life is short; we're growing older.
Don't you be an also-ran.
You'd better dance, little lady!
Dance, little man!
Dance whenever you can!


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

ENTRANCE TO NEVADA (STAIRWAY TO PARADISE/BRONCO BUSTERS/K-RA-ZY FOR YOU)

THE FOLLIES GIRLS

It's wonderful to breeze around,
They seem to have real trees around,
And of the open spaces there's no doubt -
No doubt! No doubt!
This is the life that Riley told about.
In town we used to fret away
Until we made our getaway
Out here where there's no doubt that men
Are men,
Where men are men!
We don't care if we don't go east again.
We haven't missed old Broadway or the
White lights -
When the moon at night lights -
That's the best of bright lights.

THE BOYS
In town they used to fret away
Until they made their getaway
Out here where there's no
Doubt that men are men,
Where men are men!
They don't care if they
Don't go east again.
 THE FOLLIES GIRLS
In-town-we-did-fret-a-way (slow, dragging)



In town we used to fret away
Until we made our getaway
We don't care if we don't go east again

SLAP THAT BASS  

BOBBY

Zoom - zoom, zoom - zoom,
The world is in a mess.
With politics and taxes
And people grinding axes,
There's no happiness
Zoom - zoom, zoom - zoom,
Rhythm lead your ace!
The future doesn't fret me
If I can only get me
Someone to slap that bass

PETE

Happiness is not a riddle
When I'm list'ning to that big bass fiddle.

BOBBY

Slap that bass -

PATSY

Slap it till it's dizzy.

BOBBY

Slap that bass -

TESS

Keep the rhythm busy.

TESS AND PATSY

Zoom, zoom, zoom -
Misery - You got to go.

BOBBY

Slap that bass -

TESS, PATSY, WYATT AND JIMMY

Use it like a tonic.

BOBBY

Slap that bass -

THE COMPANY

Keep your Philharmonic.
Zoom, zoom, zoom -

SAM AND MINGO

Dictators would be better off
If they zoom-zoomed now and then;

PETE

Today you can see that the happiest of men

THE COMPANY

All got rhythm.

TESS AND PATSY

In which case,
If you want to bubble -

BOBBY

Slap that bass;
Slap away your trouble.

THE COMPANY

Learn to zoom, zoom, zoom -
Slap that bass!

Dictators would be better off

Today you can see that the happiest men
All got rhythm

In which case if you want to bubble
Slap that bass
Slap away your trouble
Learn to zoom zoom zoom
Slap that bass!!


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

EMBRACEABLE YOU

POLLY

Dozens of men would storm up
I had to lock my door
Somehow I couldn't warm up
To one before
What was it that controlled me?
What kept my love-life lean?
My intuition told me
You'd come on the scene
Mister, listen to the rhythm of my heartbeat,
And you'll know just what I mean.

Embrace me,
My sweet embraceable you,
Embrace me,
My irreplaceable you
Just one look at you -- my heart grew tipsy in me.
You and you alone bring out the gypsy in me.
I love all
The many charms about you;
Above all I want my arms about you!
Don't be a naughty baby
Come to Polly -- come to Polly -- do!
My sweet embraceable you.

In your arms I find love so delectable, dear,
I'm afraid it isn't quite respectable, dear,
But hang it --
Come on, let's glorify love!
Ding dang it!
You'll shout "Encore!" if I love.
Don't be a naughty baby,
Come to Polly -- come to Polly -- do!

POLLY AND BOBBY

My sweet embraceable...

(They kiss.)


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

TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT

THE COMPANY

I've just got a feeling
Tonight's the night!
Let's tear down the ceiling --
Tonight's the night!
Take the chain and ball off,
For now on I'm free;
This is where I fall off
The family tree.
There's no fun in being an angel child --
I hear the call of the wild
If the worst should happen, it serves me right,
Tonight's the night.


I GOT RHYTHM

POLLY

Days can be sunny
With never a sigh,
Don't need what money
Can buy.
Birds in the tree sing
Their dayful of song.
Why shouldn't we sing
Along?
I'm chipper al the day,
Happy with my lot.
How did I get that way?
Look at what I've got.

I got rhythm,
I got music,
I got my man --
Who could ask for anything more?
I got daisies
In green pastures,
I got my man --
Who could ask for anything more?
I got daisies
In green pastures,
I got my man --
Who could ask for anything more?
Old man trouble,
I don't mind him --
You won't find him
'Round my door
I got starlight,
I got sweet dreams,
I got my man --
Who could ask for anything more --
Who could ask for anything more?!

JUNIOR

I got rhythm

CUSTUS

I got music,

POLLY

I got my man --

JUNIOR AND CUSTUS

Who could ask for anything more?

PETE

I got daisies

WYATT

In green pastures

POLLY

I got my man --

JUNIOR, CUSTUS, PETE AND WYATT

Who could ask for anything more?

POLLY

Old man trouble,
I don't mind him --
You won't find him
Hangin' 'round my front or back door.

EVERETT

I got starlight

WYATT

I got sweet dreams

POLLY

I got my man --
Who could ask for anything more?

THE BOYS

Who could ask for anything more?!

THE COMPANY

Old man trouble,
I don't mind him
You won't find him
'Round my door
I got rhythm,
I got music,
I got my man --
Who could ask for anything more?

In green pastures

Who could ask for anything more?
Who could ask for anything more?!
Who could ask for anything more?!

Oh....



Oh...

ACT II

THE REAL AMERICAN FOLK SONG (IS A RAG)

MINGO, MOOSE AND SAM

The real American folk song is a rag,
A mental jag
A rhythmic tonic for the chronic blues
The critics called it a joke song
But now
They've changed their tune
And they like it somehow
For it's inoculated
With a synopated sort of meter,
Sweeter
Than a classic strain
Boy! You can't remain
Still and quiet
For it's a riot!
The real American folk song
Is like a fountain of youth;
You taste,
And it elates you.
And then, invigorates you.
The real American folk song,
Master stroke song,
Is a rag.
The real American folk song
Is like the fountain of youth;
You taste,
And it elates you,
And then, invigorates you.

THE COMPANY

The real American folk song --

MINGO, MOOSE AND SAM

Yippie Yi-Yoh Ki-Yay Ki-Yoh!

THE COMPANY

The real American folk song --

MINGO, MOOSE AND SAM

Hoodle-lee hoo-day-ee hoodle-ee-hoo-day-ee-oh!

THE COMPANY

The real American folk song
Is a rag.
What a rag!!


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

WHAT CAUSES THAT?

ZANGLER

She's so full of trickery,
Life is bitter as chicory,
Bitterness fills my cup.

BOBBY

I'm sorry you brought that up.
Once I thought I'd search around
For the little church around
The corner, but now I see.

BOTH

It never was meant to be.

ZANGLER

Once she used to praise me.

BOBBY

Why is she so high hat?

ZANGLER

Boy, does she amaze me.

BOTH

Tell me what causes that?!

BOBBY

When I'm away from her I start despairing.

ZANGLER

You ought to know by now what causes that!
I'm growing balder from the hair I'm tearing.

BOTH

You ought to know by now what causes that!
When she keeps on brushing you aside
Oh gosh, you're all at sea!
You go contemplating suicide --
It's much too much for me!
You're not so dumb that you don't know the answer.
Loving her is what causes that!

ZANGLER

If I should climb the Brooklyn Bridge and jump off.

BOBBY

Oh, I suppose you'd ask what causes that?
If I should get a gun and bump this chump off.

ZANGLER

Oh, I suppose you'd ask what causes that?

BOTH

Really you don't have to mope around
And burn up as you do,
There's a cannon and rope around,
There's lots of poison too!
I'm very blue of late and there's a reason:

ZANGLER

Loving her...

BOBBY

Loving her...

BOTH

Is what causes that!
I'm very blue of late and there's a reason:
Loving her is what causes that!
...Is what causes that!
...Is what causes that!
...Is what causes that!


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

NAUGHTY BABY

IRENE

If you want a girl who's sentimental,
One who'll never set you in a whirl,
One who will be always sweet and gentle,
I am not that kind of girl.
But if you prefer a rather swift one,
If you think you'd like to run around
With a bright one
I am just the right one.
Naughty baby,
Naughty baby,
Who will tease you.
I can show the way
And know the way
To please you.
If you're wanting a beginner
I shan't do
I can make a saint a sinner
When I want to.
If you find
The simple kind
Are rather slow, dear,
Then you ought to try
A naughty one
You know, dear,
But you'll never meet another who will be
A naughty baby, naughty baby just like me.

HARRY, WYATT, JUNIOR AND MINGO

Naughty baby we love you.
Though you may be bad it's true
Please don't go.
For though we've been warned about you
You must know
That we want you so!

IRENE

If you find
The simple kind
Are rather slow, dear,
Then you ought to try
A naught one
You know, dear,
But you'll never meet another who will be
A naught baby, naughty baby...

LANK

Naughty baby, naughty baby...

IRENE

Naughty baby, naughty baby...

HARRY, WYATT, JUNIOR AND MINGO

Naughty baby...

IRENE

Just like me.

When you're in a stew!
Sober or blotto,
This is our motto:

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

THEY CAN'T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME

BOBBY

The way you wear your hat,
The way you sip your tea,
The mem'ry of all that --
No, no! They can't take that away from me!
The way your smile just beams,
The way you sing off key,
The way you haunt my dreams --
No, no! They can't take that away from me!

We can never, never meet again
On the bumpy road to love,
Still I'll always, always keep
The mem'ry of --
The way you hold your knife,
The way we danced 'til three.
The way you changed my life --
No, no! They can't take that away from me!
No! They can't take that away from me!


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

BUT NOT FOR ME

POLLY

Old man sunshine listen you!
Never tell me dreams come true.
Just try it --
And I'll start a riot.
I'm certain
It's the final curtain.
I never want to hear from any cheerful Pollyannas,
Who tell you fate,
Supplies a mate --
It's all bananas!

They're writing songs of love,
But not for me:
A lucky star's above,
But not for me.
With love to lead the way,
I've found more skies of gray
Than any Russian play
Could guarantee.
I was a fool to fail!
And get that way,
Heigh ho! Alas!
And also lackaday!
Although I can't dismiss
The mem'ry of his kiss...

It started of so swell,
This "let's pretend."
It all began so well,
But what an end!
The climax of a plot,
Should be the marriage knot,
But there's no knot for me.


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

NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT

THE GIRLS

The man who only live for making money
Lives a life that isn't necessarily sunny;
Likewise the man who works for fame --
There's no guarantee that time won't erase his name
The fact is
The only work that really brings enjoyment
Is the kind that is for girl and boy meant.
Fall in love -- you won't regret it.
That's the best work of all -- if you can get it.
Holding hands at midnight
'Neath a starry sky...

BOBBY

Oh that is nice work if you can get it.

THE GIRLS

And you can get it -- if you try.
Strolling with the one girl
Sighing sigh after sigh...

BOBBY

Oh nice work if you can get it.

THE GIRLS

And you can get it -- if you try.
Just imagine someone
Waiting at the cottage door.

ELAINE, LOUISE AND SUSIE

Waiting at the cottage door

THE GIRLS

Where two hearts become one...

THE GIRLS AND BOBBY

Who could ask for anything more?

THE GIRLS

Loving one who loves you,
And then taking that vow...

THE GIRLS AND BOBBY

Nice work if you can get it,

THE GIRLS

And if you get it --

BOBBY

Won't you tell me how?

THE GIRLS

And you can get it -- if you try.
And you can get it -- if you try.
And you can get it -- if you try.
And you can get it -- if you try.

BOBBY

Holding hands at midnight
'Neath a starry sky...
Nice work if you can get it
And you can get it -- if you try.
Strolling with the one girl
Sighing sigh after sigh...
Nice work if you can get it
And you can get it -- if you try
Who could ask for anything more?

BIDIN' MY TIME (FRENCH REPRISE)

MINGO, MOOSE AND SAM

Je suis bidin' mon temps
Parce que c'est mon genre

Il se passer quelque chose
Maintenant, maintenant
Moi, je me repose.

Who could ask for anything more?
Who could ask for anything more?!
Who could ask for anything more?!!
