Honeymoon In Vegas the Musical - The Invitation/ Forever Starts Tonight Lyrics


"Forever Starts Tonight" is a song from Honeymoon In Vegas the musical performed by Rob McClure (Jack) and Tony Danza (Tommy).

TOMMY
IF you're a betting man, we've got
A game for you.
A little friendly way
To start your Vegas stay.
Come play...

JACK
Interesting.

BETSY
What?

JACK
I got an invitation.

BETSY
What kind of invitation?

JACK
From the hotel.

TOMMY
If you're a betting man,
Then what you want to do
Is have a drink,
Say hi,
Cause you're our kind of guy.
Come play.

JACK
To a low-stakes poker game for new guests.

TOMMY
Come and meet the pit boss and the
Maitre D'.
Try the tasty pastries on our tray,
And stay!
If you're a betting man...

JACK
I could probably clean up against these yokels.

TOMMY
Come up to 1202.

JACK
Good clean fun, right?

TOMMY
Come make a friend, come make a
Buck, come play!

BETSY
You want to play in a poker game? Now?

JACK
Think of it this way.

Forever starts tonight,
And so before forever starts,
Let's take a moment,
A time to meditate on what forever
Means,
Each in our own way,
Each alone.

BETSY
Alone? Why?

JACK
Forever starts tonight,
But if there's one thing I would
Wish before it started,
I'd want the chance to tell my
Single life goodbye,
Smoking a Stogie,
Playing some
Cards...

You get a mani pedi and a Thai massage!
Find the pool, get started on your
Tan!
Go to the casino,
Give the wheel a spin,
Get your shopping in
While you can
Because forever starts tonight,
And then you're never going
Anywhere without me,
And you'll feel silly that you ever
Thought to doubt me!
We've got a lifetime
Of man-and-wife time,
So what's an hour?
We;ll be all right,
Until forever starts... tonight!

TOMMY
What could be the harm in such a
Friendly game?
Why deny a man his simple fun?

JACK/TOMMY
Thirty-seven shoe stores calling
Out your name!
Spend, and feel no shame!

JACK
Get some sun!

TOMMY
But not too much!

JACK
Because forever...

TOMMY
Forever...

JACK
Starts tonight,

TOMMY
Starts tonight,

JACK/TOMMY
And once you're in my arms,
We won't be torn asunder!
They may say, how is she with him
Well, let 'em wonder!
I just need one game,
And then there's one dame
I shall endeavor to delight
When forever starts tonight!
