THE LITTLE THINGS YOU DO TOGETHER

It's the little things you do together,
Do together,
Do together,
That make perfect relationships.
The hobbies you pursue together,
Savings you accrue together,
Looks you misconstrue together
That makes marriage a joy.
Mm-hm...

It's the little things you share together,
Swear together,
Wear together,
That make perfect relationships,
The concerts you enjoy together,
Neighbors you annoy together
Children you destroy together,
That keeps marriage intact.

It's not so hard to be married
When two maneuver as one,
It's not so hard to be married
And, Jesus Christ, is it fun.

It's sharing little winks together,
Drinks together,
Kinks together,
That makes marriage a joy.

The bargains that you shop together,
Cigarettes you stop together,
Clothing that you swap together,
That make perfect relationships.
Uh-huh...
Mm-hm...

It's not talk of God and the decade ahead that
Allows you to get through the worst
It's "I do" and "You don't" and "Nobody said that"
And "Who brought the subject up first?"
It's the little things, the little things, the little things
It's the little things, the little things, the little things
The little ways you try together,
Cry together,
Lie together,
That make perfect relationships.
Becoming a cliche together,
Growing old and gray together
Withering away together
That makes marriage a joy.

It's not so hard to be married,
It's much the simplest of crimes.
It's not so hard to be married,
I've done it three or four times.
It's people that you hate together,
Bait together,
Date together,
That make marriage a joy.

It's things like using force together,
Shouting till you're hoarse together,
Getting a divorce together,
That make perfect relationships
Uh-huh
Kiss, kiss
Mm-hm.


SORRY/GRATEFUL

You're always sorry,
You're always grateful,
You're always wondering what might have been.
Then she walks in.

And still you're sorry,
And still you're grateful,
And still you wonder and still you doubt,
And she goes out.

Everything's different,
Nothing's changed,
Only maybe slightly
Rearranged.
You're sorry-grateful,
Regretful-happy.
Why look for answers where none occur?
You always are what you always were,
Which has nothing to do with,
All to do with her.

You're always sorry,
You're always grateful,
You hold her thinking, "I'm not alone."
You're still alone.
You don't live for her,
You do live with her,
You're scared she's starting to drift away
And scared she'll stay.

Good things get better,
Bad get worse.
Wait--I think I meant that in reverse.

You're sorry-grateful,
Regretful-happy,
Why look for answers where none occur?
You'll always be what you always were,
Which has nothing to do with,
All to do with her.

You'll always be what you always were,
Which has nothing to do with,
All to do with her.

Nothing to do with,
All to do with her.


YOU COULD DRIVE A PERSON CRAZY

Doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo
You could drive a person crazy,
You could drive a person mad.
Doo-doo doo-doo doo.
First you make a person hazy
So a person could be had.
Doo-doo doo-doo doo.
Then you leave a person dangling sadly
Outside your door,
Which it only makes a person gladly
Want you even more.

I can understand a person
If it's not a person's bag.
Doo-doo doo-doo doo.
I can understand a person
If a person was a fag.
Doo-doo doo-doo doo.
Boo-boo-boo-boo.
But worse than that,
A person that
Titillates a person then and leaves her flat
Is crazy,
He's a troubled person
He's a truly crazy person
Himself.

You crummy bastard!  You sonofabitch!

When a person's personality is personable
He shouldn't oughta sit like a lump.
It's harder than a matador coercin' a bull
To try to get you offa your rump.

So single and attentive and attractive a man
Is everything a person could wish
But turning off a person is the act of a man
Who likes to pull the hooks out of fish.

Knock, knock, is anybody there?
Knock, knock, it really isn't fair,
Knock, knock, I'm working on my charms.
Knock, knock, a zombie's in my arms.

All that sweet affection,
What is wrong?
Where's the loose connection?
How long, oh Lord, how long?
Bobby, baby, Bobby, bubi, Bobby,

You could drive a person buggy,
You could blow a person's cool.
Doo-doo doo-doo doo.
Like you make a person feel all huggy
While you make her feel a fool.
Doo-doo doo-doo doo.
When a person says that you've upset her
That's when you're good.
You impersonate a person better
Than a zombie should.

I could understand a person
If he wasn't good in bed.
Doo-doo doo-doo doo.
I could understand a person
If he actually was dead.
Doo-doo doo-doo.
Exclusive you,
Elusive you,
Will any person ever get the juice of you?
You're crazy,
You're a lovely person,
You're a moving deeply maladjusted,
Never to be trusted
Crazy person
Yourself.

Bobby is my hobby, and I'm giving it up!


HAVE I GOT A GIRL FOR YOU

Bobby, Bobby, Bobby baby,
Bobby bubi, Robby, Robert darling,
Bobby, we've been trying to teach you.
Angel, I've got something to tell you
Bobby, it's important or I wouldn't call
Whatcha doing Thursday?
Bobby, look I know how you hate it and all
But this is something special
Not that you don't know a lot of lovely girls, but

Bobby, come on over for dinner.
There's someone we want you to meet,
Bobby, come on over for dinner
This girl from the office
My niece from Ohio.
It'll just be the four of us.
You'll loooooove her!

Have I got a girl for you?  Wait till you meet her!
Have I got a girl for you, boy?  Hoo, boy!
Dumb! and with a weakness for Sazerac slings--
You give her even the fruit and she swings.
The kind of girl you can't send through the mails.
Call me tomorrow, I want the details.

Have I got a chick for you?  Wait till you meet her!
Have I got a chick for you, boy? Hoo, boy!
Smart!  She's into all those exotic mystiques:
The Kama sutra and Chinese techniques.
I hear she knows more than seventy-five.
Call me tomorrow if you're still alive.

Have I got a girl for you?  Wait till you meet her!
Have I got a girl for you, boy?  Hoo, boy!
Boy, to be in your shoes what I wouldn't give.
I mean the freedom to go out and live.
And as for settling down and all that,
Marriage may be where it's been,
But it's not where it's at!

Whaddaya like, you like coming home to a kiss?
Somebody with a smile at the door?
Whaddaya like, you like indescribable bliss?
Then whaddaya wanna get married for?
Whaddaya like, you like an excursion to Rome,
Suddenly taking off to explore?
Whaddaya like, you like having meals cooked at home?
Then whaddaya wanna get married for?
Whaddaya wanna get married for?
Whaddaya wanna get married for?
Whaddaya wanna get married for?


SOMEONE IS WAITING

Someone is waiting,
Cool as Sarah,
Easy and loving as Susan--
Jenny.
Someone is waiting,
Warm as Susan,
Frantic and touching as Amy--
Joanne.

Would I know her even if I met her?
Have I missed her?  Did I let her go?
A Susan sort of Sarah,
A Jennyish Joanne,
Wait for me, I'm ready now,
I'll find you if I can!

Someone will hold me,
Soft as Jenny,
Skinny and blue-eyed as Amy--
Susan.
Someone will wake me,
Sweet as Amy,
Tender and foolish as Sarah--
Joanne.

Did I know her?  have I waited too long?
Maybe so, but maybe so has she,
My blue-eyed Sarah
Warm Joanne
Sweet Jenny
Loving Susan
Crazy Amy,
Wait for me,
I'll hurry, wait for me.
Hurry.
Wait for me.
Hurry.
Wait for me.


ANOTHER HUNDRED PEOPLE

Another hundred people just got off of the train
And came up through the ground
While another hundred people just got off of the bus
And are looking around
At another hundred people who got off of the plane
And are looking at us
Who got off of the train
And the plane and the bus
Maybe yesterday.

It's a city of strangers.
Some come to work, some to play.
A city of strangers.
Some come to stare, some to stay.
And every day
The ones who stay
Can find each other in the crowded streets and the guarded parks,
By the rusty fountains and the dusty trees with the battered barks,
And they walk together past the postered walls with the crude remarks,

And they meet at parties through the friends of friends
Who they never know.
Will you pick me up or do I meet you there
Shall we let it go?
Did you get my message?  'Cause I looked in vain.
Can we see other Tuesday if it doesn't rain?
Look, I'll call you in the morning
Or my service'll explain...
And another hundred people just got off of the train.


GETTING MARRIED TODAY

Bless this day, pinnacle of life,
Husband joined to wife,
The heart leaps up to behold
This golden day.

Today is for Amy,
Amy, I give you the rest of my life.
To cherish and to keep you,
To honor you forever,
Today is for Amy,
My happily soon-to-be wife.

Pardon me, is everybody here?
Because if everybody's
Here I want to thank you all for coming to the wedding.  I'd ap-
Preciate your going even more, I mean, you must have lots of
Better things to do.  And not a word of it to Paul.  Remember
Paul?  You know, the man I'm gonna marry, but I'm not because I
Wouldn't ruin anyone as wonderful as he is--

Thank you all
For the gifts and the flowers.
Thank you all,
Now it's back to the showers.
Don't tell Paul,
But I'm not getting married today.

Bless this day, tragedy of life,
Husband joined to wife.
The heart sinks down and feels dead
This dreadful day.

Listen everybody, look, I don't know what you're waiting for--a
Wedding, what's a wedding?  It's a prehistoric ritual where
Everybody promises fidelity forever, which is
Maybe the most horrifying word I ever heard, and which is
Followed by a honeymoon, where suddenly he'll realize he's
Saddled with a nut and wanna kill me and he should.

Thanks a bunch,
But I'm not getting married.
Go have lunch,
'Cause I'm not getting married.
You've been grand,
But I'm not getting married.
Don't just stand there,
I'm not getting married.
And don't tell Paul
But I'm not getting married today!

Go!  Can't you go?
Why is nobody listening?
Goodbye!  Go and cry
At another person's wake.
If you're quick, for a kick
You could pick up a christening,
But please, on my knees,
There's a human life at stake.

Listen everybody, I'm afraid you didn't hear, or do you
Want to see a crazy lady fall apart in front of you?  It
Isn't only Paul who may be ruining his life, you know, we'll
Both of us be losing our identities--I telephoned my
Analyst about it but he said to see him Monday, and by
Monday I'll be floating in the Hudson, with the other garbage.

I'm not well,
So I'm not getting married.
You've been swell,
But I'm not getting married.
Clear the hall
'Cause I'm not getting married.
Thank you all
But I'm not getting married.
And don't tell Paul,
But I'm not getting married today!

Bless this bride, totally insane,
Slipping down the drain,
And bless this day in our hearts
As it starts to rain.

Go, can't you go?
Look, you know
I adore you all,
But why watch me die
Like Eliza on the ice?
Look perhaps
I'll collapse
In the apse right
Before you all
So take back the cake,
Burn the shoes and boil the rice.

Look, I didn't want to have to tell you,
But I may be coming down with hepatitis
And I think I'm gonna faint,
So if you wanna see me faint,
I'll do it happily,
But wouldn't it be funnier
To go and watch a funeral?
So thank you for the
Twenty-seven dinner plates and
Thirty-seven butter knives and
Forty-seven paperweights and
Fifty-seven candleholders

One more thing          I'm not getting married.
Softly said          But I'm not getting married
With this ring       See, I'm not getting married
I thee wed           Still, I'm not getting married.

Let us pray,
That I'm not
Getting married today!


Marry Me A Little

Marry me a little
Love me just enough
Cry but no too often
Play but not too rough
Keep a tender distance
So we'll both be free
That's the way it ought to be
I'm ready

Marry me a little
Do it with a will
Make a few demands
I'm able to fulfill
Want me more than others
Not exclusively
That's the way it ought to be
I'm ready
I'm ready now

You can be my best friend
I can be your right arm
We'll go through a fight or two
No harm
No harm
We'll look no too deep
We'll go not too far
We won't have to give up a thing
We'll stay who we are
Right?
Ok then
I'm ready
I'm ready now, someone!

Marry me a little
Love me just enough
Warm and sweet and easy
Just the simple stuff
Keep a tender distance
So we'll both be free
That's the way it ought to be
I'm ready

Marry me a little
Body, heart and soul
Passionate as hell
But always in control
Want me first and foremost
Keep me company
That's the way it ought to be
I'm ready
I'm ready now

Oh, how gently we'll talk
Oh, how softly we'll tread
All this things
The ugly things
We'll keep unsaid
We'll build a cocoon
Of love and respect
You promise whatever you like
I'll never collect
Right?
Ok then
I'm ready
I'm ready now, someone!
I'm ready



ACT II


Side by Side/What Would We Do Without You

Isn't it warm, isn't it rosy
Side by side by side?
Ports in a storm, comfy and cozy
Side by side by side.

Everything shines, how sweet
Side by side by side
Parallel lines who meet
Love him, can't get enough of him.

Everyone winks, nobody's nosy
Side by side by side
You make the drinks and I'll bring the posies
Side by side by side

One is lonely and two is boring
Think what you can keep ignoring
Side by side by side
Never a bother, seven times a godfather!

Year after year, older and older
Sharing a tear, lending a shoulder
Ain't we got fun, no strain
Permanent sun, no rain
We're so crazy, he's so sane.

Friendship forbids anything bitter
Being the kids as well as the sitter
One's impossible, two is dreary
Three is company, safe and cheery
Side by side

Here is the church, here is the steeple
Open the door and see all the crazy married people:

What would we do without you?
How would we ever get through?
Who would I complain to for hours?
Who'd bring me the flowers when I had the flu?

Who'd finish yesterday's stew?
Who'd take the kids to the zoo?
Who is so dear and who is so deep?
And who would keep her occupied when I want to sleep?
How would we every get through?
What would we do without you?

What would we do without you?
How would we ever get through?
Should there be a marital squabble
Available Bob'll be there with the glue.

Who could we open up to
Secrets we keep from guess who?
Who is so safe and who is so sound?
You never need an analyst with Bobby around.
How would we ever get through
What would we do without you?

What would we do without you-oo?
How would we ever get through-oo?
Who sends anniversary wishes?
Who helps with the dishes
And never says boo?

Who changes subject on cue-oo?
Who cheers us up when we're blue-oo?
Who is a flirt but never a threat?
Reminds us of our birthdays which we always forget?
How would we ever get through?
What would we do without you?

What would we do without you?
How would we ever get, how would we ever get
How would we ever get, how would we ever get through?
What would we do without you?
Just what you usually do.  Right!

You who sit with us, you who share with us,
You who fit with us, you who bear with us,
Yoo-hoo, yoo-hoo, yoo-hoo, yoo-hoo!
OK, now, everybody:

Isn't it warm, isn't it cozy
Side by side (dance)
Ports in a storm, comfy and cozy
Side by side (dance)

Everything shines, how sweet
Side by side (dance)
Parallel lines who meet
Side by side (incomplete dance)

Year after year, older and older
Side by side
Sharing a tear and lending a shoulder
Side by side

Two's impossible, two is gloomy
Give another number to me
Side by side by side
By side by side by side by side by side by side by side by side by side by side by side!


POOR BABY

Darling.
Yes?
Robert.
What?
I worry.
Why?
He's all alone.
There's no one...
Where?
In his life?
Oh.

Robert ought to have a woman.
Poor baby, all alone,
Evening after evening by the telephone.
We're the only tenderness he's ever known.
Poor baby.

David.
Yes?
Robert.
What?
I worry.
Why?
It's such a waste.
There's no one.
Where?
In his life.
Oh.
Robert ought to have a woman.

Poor baby, sitting there,
Staring at the walls and playing solitaire,
Making conversation with the empty air.
Poor baby.

Robert.
Bobby.
Robert angel.
Bobby honey.

You know, no one
Wants you to be happy
More than I do.
No one, but
Isn't she a little bit, well,
You know,
Face it.  Why her?
Better, no one...wants you to be happy
More than I do.
No one, but...isn't she a little bit,
Well, you know, face it.

You know, no one
Wants you to be happy
More than I do.  No one, but
Isn't she a little bit, well
Dumb?  Where is she from?
Tacky?  Neurotic?  She seems so dead.
Vulgar?  Aggressive?  Peculiar?
Old?  And cheap and
Tall?  She's tall enough to be your mother.
She's very weird
Gross and
Depressing, and
And immature
Goliath,

Poor baby,
All alone,
Throw a lonely dog a bone,
It's still a bone.
We're the only tenderness
He's ever known.
Poor baby.

BARCELONA

Where you going?
Barcelona.
Oh.
Don't get up.
Do you have to?
Yes, I have to.
Oh.
Don't get up.
Now you're angry.
No, I'm not.
Yes, you are.
No, I'm not.
Put your things down.
See, you're angry.
No, I'm not.
Yes, you are.
No, I'm not.
Put your wings down
And stay.
I'm leaving.
Why?
To go to--
Stay.
I have to
Fly
I know
To Barcelona.

Look,
You're a very special girl,
Not just overnight.
No, you're a very special girl,
Not because you're bright--
Not just because you're bright.
You're just a very special girl,
June!
April.
April.
Thank you.

Whatcha thinking?
Barcelona.
Oh.
Flight Eighteen.
Stay a minute.
I would like to.
So?
Don't be mean.
Stay a minute.
No, I can't.
Yes, you can.
No, I can't.
Where you going?
Barcelona.
So you said
And Madrid
Bon voyage.
On a Boeing.
Good night.
You're angry.
No.
I've got to--
Right.
Report to--
Go.
That's not to
Say
That if I had my way...
Oh well, I guess okay.
What?
I'll stay.
But...
Oh, God!


THE LADIES WHO LUNCH

I'd like to propose a toast.

Here's to the ladies who lunch--
Everybody laugh.
Lounging in their caftans and planning a brunch
On their own behalf.
Off to the gym,
Then to a fitting,
Claiming they're fat.
And looking grim
'Cause they've been sitting
Choosing a hat--
Does anyone still wear a hat?
I'll drink to that.

Here's to the girls who stay smart--
Aren't they a gas?
Rushing to their classes in optical art,
Wishing it would pass.
Another long exhausting day,
Another thousand dollars,
A matinee, a Pinter play,
Perhaps a piece of Mahler's--
I'll drink to that,
And one for Mahler.

Here's to the girls who play wife--
Aren't they too much?
Keeping house but clutching a copy of Life
Just to keep in touch.
The ones who follow the rules
And meet themselves at the schools,
Too busy to know that they're fools--
Aren't they a gem?
I'll drink to them.
Let's all drink to them.

And here's to the girls who just watch--
Aren't they the best?
When they get depressed, it's a bottle of Scotch
Plus a little jest.
Another chance to disapprove,
Another brilliant zinger,
Another reason not to move,
Another vodka stinger--
Aaahh--I'll drink to that.

So here's to the girls on the go--
Everybody tries.
Look into their eyes and you'll see what they know:
Everybody dies.
A toast to that invincible bunch---
The dinosaurs surviving the crunch--
Let's hear it for the ladies who lunch--
Everybody rise!  Rise!
Rise!  Rise!  Rise!  Rise!  Rise!  Rise!  Rise!

BEING ALIVE

Your line was busy
Bobby

Stop!  What do you get?
Someone to hold you too close,
Someone to hurt you too deep,
Someone to sit in your chair,
To ruin your sleep.

Someone to need you too much,
Someone to know you too well,
Someone to pull you up short
To put you through hell.

Someone you have to let in,
Someone whose feelings you spare,
Someone who, like it or not, will want you to share
A little, a lot.

Someone to crowd you with love,
Someone to force you to care,
Someone to make you come through,
Who'll always be there, as frightened as you,
Of being alive,
Being alive, being alive, being alive.

Somebody, hold me too close,
Somebody, hurt me too deep,
Somebody, sit in my chair
And ruin my sleep and make me aware
Of being alive, being alive.

Somebody, need me too much,
Somebody, know me too well,
Somebody, pull me up short
And put me through hell and give me support
For being alive.

Make me alive, make me alive,
Make me confused, mock me with praise,
Let me be used, vary my days,
But alone is alone, not alive.

Somebody, crowd me with love,
Somebody, force me to care,
Somebody, make me come through.
I'll always be there as frighted as you,
To help us survive
Being alive, being alive, being alive.



FINALE

We loooooove you!

Phone rings, door chimes, in comes company!
No strings, good times, just chums, company!
Late nights, quick bites, party games,
Deep talks, long walks, telephone calls,
Thoughts shared, souls bared, private names,
All those photos up on the walls
"With love",
With love filling the days,
With love seventy ways,
"To Bobby, with love"
From all
These
Good and crazy people, your friends,
Those good and crazy people, your married friends!
And that's what it's all about, isn't it?
That's what it's really about, isn't it?
That's what it's really about, really about!

Isn't it? Isn't it? Isn't it? Isn't it?

You I love and you I love and you and you I love
And you I love and you I love and you and you I love,
I love you!

Company! Company! Company, lots of company!
Years of company! Love is company!
Company!
