Evening Primrose - Take Me To The World Lyrics

Stephen Sondheim's 1966 television musical
Evening Primrose the Musical - Take Me To The World Lyrics


WOMAN:
Let me see the world with clouds,
Take me to the world.
Out where I can push through crowds,
Take me to the world.

A world that smiles
With streets instead of aisles
Where I can walk for miles with you

Take me to the world that’s real
Show me how it’s done
Teach me how to laugh, to feel
Move me to the sun

Just hold my hand whenever we arrive
Take me to a world where I can be alive

MAN:
The world is better here.
I know I’ve seen them both.

WOMAN:
Let me see the world that smiles

MAN:
A poet doesn’t count for much out there

WOMAN:
Take me to the world

MAN:
We’d be cold and hungry in the winter

WOMAN:
Somewhere I can walk for miles

MAN:
A shabby room with cracked plaster

WOMAN:
Take me to the world Him: You couldn’t get a job
With all around things growing in the ground

MAN:
We’d end up hating each other.

WOMAN:
We’d have fights. You’d cry.
Where birds that make a sound are birds
Let me see the world that’s real

MAN:
I have seen the world

WOMAN:
Show me how it’s done

MAN:
And it’s mean and ugly

WOMAN:
Teach me how to laugh, to feel

MAN:
We could laugh together

WOMAN:
Move me to the sun

MAN:
Stay here with me

WOMAN:
Just hold my hand whenever we arrive

MAN:
Stay here. I love you. But we’re happy here

WOMAN:
Let it be a world with you

MAN:
Stay with me

WOMAN:
Any other world with you
Take me to a world where I can be alive

MAN:
Do you want the world ?
Well then, you shall have the world
Ask me for the world again
You shall have the world

A world of skies
That’s bursting with surprise
To open up your eyes for joy

We shall see the world come true
We shall have the world
I won’t be afraid with you
We shall have the world
You’ll hold my hand and know you’re not alone

You shall have the world to keep
Such a lovely world you’ll weep
We shall have the world forever for our own
