COMPANY (EXCEPT FRANK)
Yesterday is done.
See the pretty countryside.
Merrily we roll along,
Roll along, bursting with dreams.

Travelling’s the fun,
Flashing by the countryside,
Everybody merrily, merrily
Catching at dreams,
Rolling along…
Rolling along…
Rolling along…

GROUP I
Dreams don’t die, so keep an eye on your dream,

GROUP II
And before you know where you are, there you are.

GROUP I
Time goes by
And hopes go dry, but you still can try for your dream.

GROUP I
Tend your dream…

GROUP II
How does it happen?

GROUP I
Dreams take time…

GROUP II
Once it was all so clear.

GROUP I
Time goes by…

GROUP II
How can you get so far off the track?
Why don't you turn around and go back?

GROUP I
Bend your dream…

GROUP II
How does it happen? Where is the moment?

GROUP I
With the road…

GROUP II
How can you miss it? Isn't it clear? How can you let it slip out of gear?

ALL
How did you ever get there from here?

GROUP I
You roll.

GROUP II
How does it happen?

GROUP III
How does it happen?

GROUP I
You just roll.

GROUP II
Once it was all so clear.

GROUP III
Isn’t it always clear?

GROUP I
Everybody roll,

GROUP II
How does it start to go?

GROUP II, III
Does it slip away slow

ALL
So you never even notice it’s happening?

CHARLEY
How did you get to be here?

ALL EXCEPT CHARLEY
What was the moment?

MARY
How did you get to be here?

MARY, CHARLEY
Pick yourself a road.
Get to know the countryside.
Soon enough you’re merrily,

ALL
Merrily
Practicing dreams.

Dreams that will explode,
Waking up the countryside,
Making you feel merrily,
Merrily, what can go wrong
Rolling along?

Some roads are soft
And some are bumpy.
Some roads you really fly.
Some rides are rough
And leave you jumpy.
Why make it tough
By getting grumpy?
Plenty of roads to try.

GROUP I GROUP II
One trip. Some roads are soft
All you get and some are bumpy.
Is one quick ride. Some roads you really fly.
Look around a bit — some rides are rough
One quick ride and leave you jumpy.
Through the countryside. Why make it tough
Stay on the track. By getting grumpy?
Plenty of roads to try.
Never look back. Some roads you really fly.
Never look back.
Never look back.
Never look back.
Never look back.
Never look —

ALL
How did you get to be here?
What was the moment?
How did you get to be here?

Bending with the road,
Gliding through the countryside.
Merrily we roll along,
Roll along, catching at dreams.
Dreams that will explode,
Waking up the countryside,
Everybody merrily, merrily,
Sing 'em your song,
Rolling along!
Rolling along!
Rolling along!
