Merrily We Roll Along - The Blob (Part II) Lyrics

Gussie: Wait, wait, wait! Keep them there. We want to hear it again. Tell them.
Wouldn't you all just like to live your entire life to that music?
Down, everybody, down, down, down. They're going to do it again. One mo' time!

Charley: Frank, no. Say 'no'.

Mary: Charley's right.

Beth: They loved it.

Frank: They thought we were great.

Charley: And you know what greatness is? It's knowing when to get off.

Frank: I'll sing with you. Come on.

Charley and Frank:
IT STARTED OUT LIKE A SONG.
WE STARTED QUIET AND SLOW,
WITH NO SURPRISE
AND THEN ONE MORNING I WOKE
TO REALIZE --

Dory:                                Charley and Frank:
I SAID, 'JOE --                   WE HAD A
THIS SHOW                      GOOD THING GOING.
WILL BE A WATERSHED.'

AT THE TIME?

IT'S THE ONLY
IT'S THE PERFECT

IT'S THE REAL
IT'S THE TRUE
IT'S THE FINAL
