Julian Marsh is doin' a show! [Tap dancing] 3.Shadow Waltz Dorothy Brock: Shadows on the wall, I can see them fall Here and there and ev'rywhere. Silhouettes in blue, Dancing in the dew; Here am I, Where are you? In the shadows, Let me come and sing to you. Let me dream a song that I can bring to you. Take me in your arms and let me cling to you, Let me linger long, Let me live my song. In the winter, Let me bring the spring to you, Let me feel that I mean ev'rything to you. Love's old song will be new, In the shadows, when I come sing and to you. In the shadows, when I come sing and to you. In the shadows, In the shadows, In the shadows, Girls: In the shadows, Let me come and sing to you. Let me dream a song that I can bring to you. Take me in your arms and let me cling to you, Let me linger long, Let me live my song. In the winter, Let me bring the spring to you, Let me feel that I mean ev'rything to you. Love's old song will be new, In the shadows, when I come and sing- In the shadows, when I come and sing- In the shadows, when I come and sing to you. Dorothy Brock: In the winter, Let me bring the spring to you, Let me feel that I mean ev'rything to you. Love's old song will be new, In the shadows, when I come and sing to you, dear. In the shadows, when I come and sing to you. 4.Young and Healthy Billy Lawlor: I know a bundle of humanity, She's about so high; I'm nearly driven to insanity, When she passes by. She's a sunny little honey, But oh so hard to kiss; I'll try to overcome her vanity, And then I'll tell her this: I'm young and healthy, And you've got charms; It would really be a sin Not to have you in my arms. I'm young and healthy, And so are you; When the moon is in the sky Tell me what am I to do? If I could hate "yuh," I'd keep away; That ain't my nature, I'm full of vitamin "A," say! [Spoken] Say kid! Now you go to it! Peggy Sawyer: To what!?! Billy Lawlor: Your first notes on Broadway! Peggy Sawyer: I'm young and healthy, And you've got charms; It would really be a sin Not to have you in my arms. I'm young and healthy, And so are you; When the moon is in the sky Tell me what am I to do? If I could hate "yuh," I'd keep away; That ain't my nature, I'm full of vitamin "A," say! I'm young and healthy, So let's be bold; In a year or two or three, Maybe we will be Too old. 5.Go Into Your Dance Maggie Jones: One! Two! Three! Four! If you've a melancholy case of the blues, I've got a remedy for you. If you've an ounce of rhythm down in your shoe, Then I'll change your point of view. If you've been singin' a sad and blue song, Peggy, Annie, Andy, Lorraine and Phyllis: Go in to your dance. Maggie Jones: Until you learn how to sing a new song, Peggy, Annie, Andy, Lorraine and Phyllis: Go in to your dance. Don't be complainin', Maggie Jones: Learn how to smile. Peggy, Annie, Andy, Lorraine and Phyllis: And if it's rainin', Maggie Jones: Dance in the rain a while. Maggie Jones, Peggy, Annie, Andy, Lorraine and Phyllis: Put off your sorrow until tomorrow, Go in to your dance; To get a job in the Broadway chorus, Go into your dance; To strut the suffin' they get in chorus, Go into your dance. If there's a two step get off and smile, If there's a new step, do it the greatest style! A raw beginner can be a winner, Just give me the chance, Shake your shoes and Go in to your- To get a job in the Broadway chorus, Go into your dance; To strut the suffin' they get in chorus, Go into your dance. If there's a two step get off and smile, If there's a new step, do it the greatest style! A raw beginner can be a winner, Just give me the chance, Shake your shoes and Go in to your- Go in to your- 6.You're Getting To Be a Habit With Me Dorothy: I don't know exactly how it started, But it started in fun; I just wanted someone to be gay with, To play with someone. But now I realize that I should never let it go, And I've found to tell you so. Ev'ry kiss, every hug Seems to act just like a drug; You're getting to be a habit with me. Let me stay in your arms, I'm addicted to your charms; You're getting to be a habit with me. I used to think our love was something that I Could take or leave alone, But now I couldn't do without my supply, I need you for my own. Oh, I can't break away, I must have you ev'ry day; As regularly as coffee or tea. You've got me in your clutches, And I can't break free; You're getting to be a habit with me. Oh, I can't break away, I must have you ev'ry day; As regularly as coffee or tea. You've got me in your clutches, And I can't break free; You're getting to be a habit with me. 7.Gettin' Out of Town Lyrics by MICHAEL STEWART - Original lyrics by MORT DIXON and JOE YOUNG Woman 1: I'm grabbin' my hat and coat. Man 1: I'm leavin' the cat a note. Man 1 and Woman 1: Quick, call me a ferry-boat. Gettin' out of town. Man 2: I'm shinin' my travelin' shoes. Big scoop in the Daily News. "Who's sayin' his toodle-oos?" Gettin' out of town. Girls: We're leavin' the boys in style. We're linin' 'em up in file, And givin' them each a smile, I'm leavin' the cat a note. Quick, call me a ferry-boat. Gettin' out of town. All: Cares fly by. They're sayin' bye, bye, And we're shoutin', "Hoorah!" Wings spredin' 'cause we're headin' for Hotcha, hotcha, hotcha. My neighbors are awful nice. They promised to feed the mice. Hey, Iceman! Don't need your ice. Gettin' out of town. Cares fly by. They're sayin' bye, bye, And we're shoutin', "Hoorah!" Wings spredin' 'cause we're headin' for Hotcha, hotcha, hotcha. Hotcha, hotcha, hotcha. A new kind of company, It's just magnetizin' me. I'm footloose and fancy free. Gettin' out of town. Additional Verses Not on the OCR I'm wearin' my hat and coat. I'm leavin' the cat a note. Quick, call me a ferry-boat. Gettin' out of town. My tickets are in my hand. Gosh, isn't the feelin' grand. Good gracious, they've sent a band! Gettin' out of town. 8.We're In the Money Annie, Peggy, Lorraine, Phyllis, Billy and Ensemble: - I got it! - Well, what is it? - A penny, a nickel... - You got hold yo' horses and let me get the dough off! A dime! We're in the money, We're in the money; We've got a lot of what it takes to get along! We're in the money, The sky is sunny; Old Man Depression, you are through, You done us wrong! We never see a headline 'Bout breadline, today, And when we see the landlord, We can look that guy right in the eye . We're in the money Come on, my honey Let's spend it, lend it, Send it rolling around! All: We're in the money, We're in the money; We've got a lot of what it takes to get along! We're in the money, The sky is sunny; Old Man Depression, you are through, You done us wrong! We never see a headline 'Bout breadline, today, And when we see the landlord, We can look that guy right in the eye. Look that guy right in the eye- Look that guy right in the eye- We're in the money Come on, my honey Let's spend it, lend it, send it- Let's spend it, lend it, send it Rolling, rolling- Rolling around! Additional Verse Gone are my blues, And gone are my tears; I've got good news To shout in your ears. The silver dollar has returned to the fold, With silver you can turn your dreams to gold. 9.Dames Billy and Ensemble: Who writes the words and music For all the girly shows? No one cares, and no one knows. Who is the handsome hero Some villain always frames? But who cares if there's a plot or not, When they've got a lot of dames! What do you go for, Go see a show for? Tell the truth You go to see those beautiful dames. You spend your dough for Bouquets that grow for All those cute and cunning, Young and beautiful dames. Oh! Dames are temporary flames to you. Dames, you don't recall their names, Do you? But their caresses And home addresses, Linger in your mem'ry of those beautiful dames. What do you go for, Go see a show for? Tell the truth You go to see those beautiful dames. You spend your dough for Bouquets that grow for All those cute and cunning, Young and beautiful dames. Oh! Dames are temporary flames to you. Dames, you don't recall their names, Do you? What do you go for, Go see a show for? Tell the truth You go to see those beautiful dames. You spend your dough for Bouquets that grow for All those cute and cunning, Young and beautiful dames. Those gorgeous dames Are temporary flames to you. Dames, you don't recall their names, Do you? Slims and all curvy, Sweet, shy and nervy, There is nothin' as refined as beautiful- No sun can shine as beautiful Bring on a line of beautiful Dames, dames, dames, dames, Dames, dames, dames, dames- Dames! ACT TWO 10.Sunny Side To Every Situation Lyrics by JOHNNY MERCER - Music by HARRY WARREN Annie and Ensemble: Sing tra la la la la la la la, The sun may never, never shine, But tra la la la la la la la, Somewhere the weather's fine. Long ago, one fine day, Some philosopher was heard to say, "There's a sunny side to ev'ry situation," And the same applies to you, His philosophy's still true, There's a funny side to ev'ry situation. You've no dough, so relax, You don't have to pay an income tax. You've no job so just pretend it's your vacation. Should the landlord raise your rent Hum your nose and paint your tent Ev'ry situation has a sunny side. Sing tra la la la la la la la, The sun may never, never shine, But tra la la la la la la la, Somewhere the weather's fine. With no bonds and no stocks In your little safe deposit box, You can never be affected by inflation. When your car is out of gas, Then no red lights can you pass, Ev'ry situation has a sunny side. Ev'ry situation has a sunny side. Additional Verse: Though some eggs are dark outside, They look diff'rent when they're fried, Ev'ry situation has a sunny side. When it rains, when it pours, Think how nice it is to stay indoors, There's a sunny side of ev'ry situation. When your rent is overdue, Let the landlord fret for you, There's a funny side to ev'ry situation. When you broke, through and through, Folks can't borrow anything from you, That is what we call the law of compensation. When it's rainin' cats and dogs, Think how swell it is for frogs, Ev'ry situation has a sunny side. When you lose all you own And they take away your telephone, And you feel that you are out of circulation, Say, you're lucky after all, Those insurance men can't call, Ev'ry situation has a sunny side. 11.Lullaby of Broadway Peggy: [Spoken] I'm sorry show business isn't for me. I'm goin' back to Allentown! Julian: What was the word you've just said, Allentown? I'm offering you a chance to star in biggest musical Broadway's seen in twenty years and you say: "Allentown?" [Singing] Come on along and listen to The lullaby of Broadway. The hip hooray and bally hoo, The lullaby of Broadway. The rumble of the subway train, The rattle of the taxis. The daffy-dills who entertain At Angelo's and Maxie's. When a Broadway baby says "Good night," It's early in the morning. Manhattan babies don't sleep tight until the dawn: Good night, baby, Good night, milkman's on his way. Sleep tight, baby, Sleep tight, let's call it a day, Listen to the lullaby of old Broadway. Ensemble: Come on along and listen to The lullaby of Broadway. The hidee hi and boopa doo, The lullaby of Broadway. The band begins to go to town, And ev'ryone goes crazy. You rock-a-bye your baby 'round 'Til ev'rything gets hazy. Hush-a-bye, "I'll buy you this and that," You hear a daddy sayin'. And baby goes home to her flat To sleep all day: Good night, baby, Good night, milkman's on his way. Sleep tight, baby, Sleep tight, let's call it a day! Listen to the lullaby of old Broadway. Come on along and listen to The lullaby of Broadway. The hip hooray and bally hoo, The lullaby of Broadway. The rumble of the subway train, The rattle of the taxis. The daffy-dills who entertain Until the dawn: Good night, baby, Good night, milkman's on his way. Peggy: [Spoken] I'll do it! Ensemble: [Cheers!] [Singing] Come on along- Come on along and listen to The lullaby of Broadway. The hidee hi and boopa doo, The lullaby of Broadway. The band begins to go to town, And ev'ryone goes crazy. You rock-a-bye your baby 'round And sleep all day! Listen to the lullaby of Old Broadway! 12.About a Quarter To Nine Dorothy and Peggy: Life begins when somebody's eyes look into your own. Life begins when you get your guy all alone. From morning until twilight, I don't know I'm alive, But I know love begins at eight forty-five. The stars are gonna twinkle and shine This evening, About a quarter to nine. His lovin' arms (His lovin' arms) Are gonna tenderly twine (Are gonna tenderly twine) Around me, around a quarter to nine. I know I won't be late, 'Cause at half past eight I'm gonna be there. I'll be waitin' where the lane begins, Waitin' for you on needles and pins. And then the world is gonna be mine, This evening, about a quarter to nine. I know I won't be late, 'Cause at half past eight I'm gonna be there. I'll be waitin' where the lane begins, Waitin' for you on needles and pins. And then the world is gonna be mine, This evening, about a quarter to nine. 13.Shuffle Off To Buffalo Bert: Now that we have had the rice and flowers, The knot is tied; Annie: I can visu'lize such happy hours, Close by your side. The honeymoon in store Is one that you'll adore, I'm gonna take you for a ride. Annie, Bert, Maggie and Girls: I'll (You'll) go home and get my panties, You (I'll) go home and get your scanties, And away we'll go. Mm mm mm... Off we're gonna shuffle, Shuffle off to Buffalo. To Niag'ra in a sleeper, There's no honeymoon that's cheaper, And the train goes slow. Ooh ooh ooh! Off, we're gonna shuffle, Shuffle off to Buffalo. Someday, the stork may pay a visit And leave a little souvenir. Just a little cute "what is it," But we'll discuss that later, dear. For a little silver quarter, We can have the pull man porter Turn the lights down low. Ooh! Off we're gonna shuffle, Shuffle off to Buffalo. You'll go home and get your purses, I'll go get my niece and nurses, And away we'll go. Mm mm mm... Off we're gonna shuffle, Shuffle off to Buffalo. To Niag'ra in a sleeper, There's no honeymoon that's cheaper, And the train goes slow. Ooh ooh ooh! Off, we're gonna shuffle, Shuffle off to Buffalo. Someday, the stork may pay a visit And leave a little souvenir. Just a little cute "what is it," But we'll discuss that later, dear. For a little silver quarter, We can have the pull man porter Turn the lights down low. Ooh! Off we're gonna shuffle, Shuffle off to Buffalo. Matrimony is baloney She'll be wanting alimony In a year of so Still they go and shuffle Shuffle Off to Buffalo When she knows as much as we know She'll be on her way to Reno While he still has dough She'll give him the Shuffle When they're back from Buffalo 14.42nd Street Peggy and Ensemble: In the heart of little old New York, You'll find a thoroughfare. It's the part of little old New York That runs into Times Square. A crazy quilt that "Wall Street Jack" built, If you've got a little time to spare, I want to take you there. Come and meet those dancing feet, On the avenue I'm taking you to... Come and meet those dancing feet, On the avenue I'm taking you to, Forty-Second Street. Hear the beat of dancing feet, It's the song I love the melody of, Forty-Second Street. Little "nifties" from the Fifties, Innocent and sweet; Sexy ladies from the Eighties, Who are indiscreet. They're side by side, they're glorified Where the underworld can meet the elite, Forty-Second Street. 15.Finale: 42nd Street (Reprise) Julian: Come and meet those dancing feet, On the avenue I'm taking you to, Forty-Second Street. Hear the beat of dancing feet, It's the song I love the melody of, Forty-Second Street. Little "nifties" from the Fifties, Innocent and sweet; Sexy ladies from the Eighties, Who are indiscreet. They're side by side, they're glorified Where the underworld can meet the elite, Forty-Second Street. Naughty, bawdy, gaudy, sporty, Forty-Second Street! 16.Bows Full Company: Dames are temporary flames to you. Dames, you don't recall their names, Do you? Slims and all curvy, Sweet, shy and nervy, There is nothin' as refined as beautiful- No sun can shine as beautiful Bring on a line of beautiful Dames, dames, dames, dames, Dames, dames, dames, dames- Dames! Come on along and listen to The lullaby of Broadway. The hidee hi and boopa doo, The lullaby of Broadway. The band begins to go to town, And ev'ryone goes crazy. You rock-a-bye your baby 'round And sleep all day. Good night, baby, Good night, let's call it a day. Listen to the lullaby of old Broadway! CUT FROM THE SHOW 17.I Know Now It's not a sign of meekness To say you're wrong, When you discover your mistake. It doesn't show your weakness, It shows you're strong, When you admit a blunder that you make. For, I know now, You're the only one, I know now, I'm the lonely one, I had to learn how a heart can yearn, How tears can burn, With no one to turn to. I know now, That I can't forget, I can't, for I don't know how, I guess I never knew How I needed you, But sweetheart, I know now. I know now, That I can't forget, I can't, for I don't know how, I guess I never knew How I needed you, But sweetheart, I know now.
