Musicals

so I am listening to musicals. my favorite right now is 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. it is amazing – funny yet poignant.

Dirty Rotten Scoundels has really random lyrics though. I like it a lot (not as much as Spelling Bee tho) I feel a need to share this song.

this is a really romantic soft duet. yeah. right.

Nothing Is Too Wonderful To Be True

CHRISTINE
Look at the way the moon behaves.
Look at the way she paints
A silver ribbon on the waves.
One thing I’ve learned and I’ll share with you-
Nothing is too wonderful to be true.
Each moment opens like a flower.
The age of miracles comes
Every hour on the hour.
Turn any corner,
There’s something new
And nothing is too wonderful
To be true.
If I’m perceived to be
Naive to be the way I am
Let people say I am a silly goof

Is life a plateful? Am I grateful?
Every day I am,
It’s an amazing world in which we live
And I’ve got living proof.

Look at the way the moon behaves.
Look at the way she paints
A silver ribbon on the waves
Leading directly to me and you.

Nothing is too wonderful to be true.
Nothing is too wonderful to be true.

Oh, can’t you see it? Can’t you see it?

FREDDY
You know, I think I can.

CHRISTINE
Tell me.

FREDDY
Uh…

Magic can happen anywhere
I knew this guy at camp
Who ate his t-shirt on a dare.
My hotel gives away free shampoo.
Nothing is too wonderful to be true.

CHRISTINE
Go on.

FREDDY
Geez…

Sometimes God grants
Your heart’s desire-
Once I was caller number eight;
I won a set of tires.
They held up that midget
With Krazy Glue
Nothing is too wonderful to be true.

FREDDY/CHRISTINE
Nothing is too wonderful to be true.

????? Midget? tyres? krazy Glue?? Wha???
