Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
Mamma Mia!: the Musucal
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! Song


GIRLS
Is there a man out there?
Someone to hear my prayer

Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away?
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! A man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

SOPHIE
Sorry to drag you away

SAM
Thank God you did, this used to be
a quiet wee island.

SOPHIE
Regretting you stayed away so long?

SAM
No, I'm regretting I never knew
what was here.

SOPHIE
What?

SAM
This plave - the Taverna. I always
meant to come back and build it
some day, but - she beat me to it.

SOPHIE:
Do you prefer buildings to people?

SAM
What?!

SOPHIE
Tell me something about my mum.

SAM
Your mum was irresistible, a one-off.
We talked and we fought - you
know it was me that brought her to
this island?

SOPHIE
That wasn't the only thing you did,
was it?

SAM
Oh right, what has she told you?

SOPHIE
Nothing. She's never mentioned
you.

SAM
But you said "Mum's always talking
about her friends from the old
days." What's going on? Sophie,
why am I here?

GIRLS
Is there a man out there
Someone to hear my prayer

Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away?
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight

Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

HARRY
Fancy Donna with a grown-up
daughter!

SOPHIE
Have you got any children, Harry?

HARRY
No. I haven't put myself in the path
of paternity.

SOPHIE
It's never too late.

HARRY
I don't think my other half would
agree.

SOPHIE
Oh - you don't want children?

HARRY
No, no, it's not like that. It's just that:
: well, I'd have liked a daughter. I'd
have spoiled her to bits.

SOPHIE
Lucky thing.

HARRY
Is your Dad here?

SOPHIE
I don't know.

HARRY
What?

SOPHIE
I don't know who my Dad is.

GIRLS
Is there a man out there?
Someone to hear my prayer:

BILL
Can I be nosey, I'm a writer so it
goes with the territory.

SOPHIE
Go on.

BILL
How did your mother get this place?
When I knew her
she was singing in a night-club on
the mainland.

SOPHIE
She was left some money, in a will.
We lived with an old lady when I
was little. Her name was Sophia?

BILL
What, my Great-Aunt Sophia?

SOPHIE
I think it must be.

BILL
But: I always heard her money
went to: family:
Wait a minute - how old are you?

SOPHIE
Twenty.

GIRLS
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away?
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day
