Polly But Not For Me (39 sec-End)
I was a fool to fail! And get that way,
Hey ho! Alas! And also lackaday!
Although I can't dismiss The memory of his kiss...
It started off 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.
Irene Naughty Baby (Start-1:32)
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.
Irene Darling, dont even listen to her. Ive got the wedding all planned. Youll wear a morning coat, and Ill go strapless. Its all the rage. Shes completely insane! Ive got the colors picked out for the wedding, and theyre blue and white!
Bobby Cant Be Bothered Now (Start-1:10)
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! (Optional dance break).
*Those auditioning for Bobby can also include an optional 8-16 count tap break at the end of their song.*
Zangler What Causes That (Start-1:30)
She's so full of trickery, Life is bitter as chicory, Bitterness fills my cup.
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. It never was meant to be.
Once she used to praise me. Why is she so high hat? Boy, does she amaze me.
Tell me what causes that?!
When I'm away from her I start despairing. (Hoey yoey yoey yoe) You ought to know by now what causes that!
I'm growing balder from the hair I'm tearing. (Sheeesh) 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!
Follie Girl Nice Work If You Can Get It (Start-1:17)
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-Dont Sing] 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- Dont Sing] Oh nice work if you can get it.
[The Girls] And you can get it -- if you try.
*Will be asked to do a high dance kick.*
Cowboy Trio The Real American Folk Song (Start-1:20)
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 syncopated 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.
(Include Yodel after until the next chorus.)
