HADESTOWN the Musical - Papers Lyrics

HADES (spoken)
Young man!
I don't think we've met before.
You're not from around here, son.
Don't know who the hell you are but I can tell you don't belong.
These are working people, son! Law-abiding citizens.
Go back to where you came from.
You're on the wrong side of the fence.

HERMES (spoken)
See, Orpheus was a poor boy.

HADES (spoken)
You hear me, son?

HERMES (spoken)
And Hades was a mighty king.

You better run!

HERMES (spoken)
But this poor boy raised up his voice, even though it was trembling.

ORPHEUS (spoken)
I'm not going back alone. I came to take her home.

HADES (spoken & laughs)
Who the hell do you think you are?
Who the hell do you think you're talking to?
She couldn't go anywhere, even if she wanted to.
You're not from around here, son. If you were,
Then you would know that everyone and everything in Hadestown, I own.
As for you...
Everybody, gather around!
Everyone, come look and see what becomes of trespassers with no respect for property!
