The Frogs The Musical - I Love to Travel (reprise) Lyrics


Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.

DIONYSOS:
Xanthias, bring the baggage.
We go straight to the River Styx. And no wending.
(singing)
I love to travel --

XANTHIAS:
Master, I hate to repeat myself, but --

DIONYSOS:
Over verdant hillock --

XANTHIAS:
I don't see why I have to go to Hades.

DIONYSOS:
And through leafy woodland --

XANTHIAS:
When my number is up, from natural causes, sure, but why now?

DIONYSOS:
Beside leaping brook,
Along mossy lane --

XANTHIAS:
I have hopes, dreams -- I wanna see Paris.
I wanna have a m?nage ? trois. Is that pastry?

DIONYSOS:
Through vale and valley --

XANTHIAS:
I like earth.

DIONYSOS:
Ascending craggy rock,
Descending deep ravine --

XANTHIAS:
I've lived here since I was born.

DIONYSOS:
Exploring shady glade
And making merry with the wood nymphs --

I was raised by wood nymphs!

XANTHIAS:
That explains a lot.

DIONYSOS:
Who finally point us in the right direction.

XANTHIAS:
We were going in the wrong direction?!

DIONYSOS:
And now we travel
Due south.
Along stony path,
Across deep depression --

XANTHIAS:
I'm in a deep depression.

DIONYSOS:
Until it's time to shimmy straight down!

I love to travel
I love to travel
I love to --

(speaking)
Good news. We've made it to the River Styx -- look.
Oh Boatman! Boatman! Now where's the boatman?
