Into the Woods - Careful, My Toe Lyrics

Broadway
Into the Woods the Musical - Careful, My Toe Lyrics


NARRATOR
As the Prince anxiously waited, the stepmother took matters,
and Florinda's foot, into her own hands.

FLORINDA
Careful my toe!

STEPMOTHER
Darling I know

FLORINDA
What do we do?

STEPMOTHER
It'll have to go.
But when you're his bride
you can sit or ride,
you'll never have to walk!

NARRATOR
Minus one toe, Florinda mounted the Prince's horse,
unaware of the blood dripping from the slipper.
Lucinda was next.

LUCINDA
Why won't it fit?

STEPMOTHER
Darling be still.
Cut off a bit of the heel and it will.
And when you're his wife,
you'll have such a life,
You'll never need to walk!

NARRATOR
Minus a heel, Lucinda did her best to swallow the pain.

STEPMOTHER
It's a perfect fit, Your Highness.
