Firebringer the Musical - We Got Work to Do Lyrics


"We Got Work to Do" was written by Meredith Stepien & Mark Swiderski, performed by Lauren Lopez (Zazzalil), Meredith Stepien (Jemilla), and Ensemble.

JEMILLA:
We got work to do
We got work to do

ZAZZALIL:
I don't really wanna do the work today
I don't really wanna do the work today
I don't really wanna do the work today
I don't wanna do the work today

TRIBE:
I don't really wanna do the work today
I don't really wanna do the work today
I don't really wanna do the work today
I don't wanna do the work today

ZAZZALIL:   (KEERI, SMELLY-BALLS:)
Just figured out how to move, how to sing, how to groove
(I don't really wanna do the work today)
(I don't really wanna do the work today)
And now you're telling me, I gotta work today
(I don't really wanna do the work today)
(I don't wanna do the work today)

You know that feeling when you find a thing that blows your mind
(I don't really wanna do the work today)
(I don't really wanna do the work today)
And next thing you know they wanna take it away
(I don't really wanna do the work today)
(I don't wanna do the work today)

TRIBE:   (SCHWOOPSIE, EMBERLY:)
Yeah, but you heard what Jemilla said
(I know, I know, I know...)
You gotta work to get ahead
(Our people have to grow...)

TRIBE:   (JEMILLA:)
We gotta harness our pride
((spoken) Thank you.)
And keep it up to survive
((spoken) Thank you.)

JEMILLA:
Alright, now listen girls. Let me reiterate:
I know it's hard to just work with no play
I hope we all understand the importance of what we do
And how this world is full of obstacles we gotta work through

We got so much to do
Already you and me have made discoveries
And have helped our kind in so many ways

I hope you feel in power
Working through the shroud of mystery
And our history's growing everyday

EMBERLY (spoken):
Come on, Jemilla! You know we're just messing with ya!

I got the best job, 'cause I'm in charge of food
I gotta eat everything to find out what tastes good

(spoken) Don't eat that! No one eat that!

SMELLY-BALLS:
When I'm not kicking ass, I sit and stare at the grass
And let the time pass to find out how it grows

TRIBE (spoken):
And?

SMELLY-BALLS:
I still don't know

TRIBE (spoken):
Oh.

SMELLY-BALLS (spoken):
I still don't know!

SCHWOOPSIE & CHORN:
We've been watching our shadows everyday
We notice when the sky is cloudy they go away
We're trying to explain

DUCKER:
What could they be?
These dark spirits that follow us?
No matter how fast we run
They are trying to swallow us!

(Dialogue)

JEMILLA:
So many wondrous things here for our kind
A world of tools and knowledge left to find
And I hope to bring you there
Because you know how much I care

So we'll join each other hand in hand
And try to help ourselves to understand
This world is what we make of it together

This is the dawn
The dawn of our time
We are mankind
With the gift of a greater mind

ALL:
This is the dawn
The dawn of our time
We are womankind
With the gift of a stronger mind

Ooh...
Ooh...
Ooh...
