Rent the Musical - Happy New Year B Lyrics


MAUREEN
I think we need an agent!

MARK
We?

JOANNE
Thats selling out

MARK
But it's nice to dream!

MAUREEN
Yeah! It's network TV
And it's all thanks to me!

MARK
Somehow i think i smell a whiff of a scheme!

JOANNE
Me too

MAUREEN
We can plan another protest

JOANNE
We?

MAUREEN
This time you can shoot from the start
You'll direct, starring me!

MARK, MAUREEN, JOANNE
5, 4, 3
Open sesame! Happy new year!
Happy new year!
Happy new...

BENNY
I see that you've beaten me
To the punch

MARK
How did you know we'd be here?

BENNY
I had a hunch

MARK
You're not mad?

BENNY
I'm here to end this war
It's a shame you went and destroyed the door

MIMI
Why all of a sudden the big about face?

BENNY
The credit is yours
You made a good case

ROGER
What case?

BENNY
Mimi came to see me
And she had much to say

MIMI
That's not how you put it
At all yesterday!

BENNY
I couldn't stop thinking
About the whole mess!
Mark you'll want to get this on film

MARK
I guess

BENNY
I regret the unlucky circumstances
Of the last seven days

ROGER
Circumstance?
You padlocked our door!

BENNY
And it's a great pleasure on behalf of cyber arts
That I hand you this key

ANGEL
Golf claps

MARK
I had no juice in my battery

BENNY
Reshoot!

ROGER
Oh I see this is a photo opportunity

MAUREEN
The benevolent god
Ushers the poor artists back to their flat
Were you planning on taking
Down the barbed wire from the lot too?

ROGER
Anything but that

BENNY
Clearing the lot
Was a safety concern
We break ground this month
But you can return

MAUREEN
That's why you're here
With people you hate
Instead of with Muffy
At Muffy's estate

BENNY
I honestly rather'd be with you tonight than in Westport

ROGER
Spare us old sport, the sound bite

BENNY
Mimi, since you were so seductive

MIMI
You came onto me!

BENNY
Persuade him not to be so counterproductive

ROGER
Liar!

BENNY
Why not tell them what you wore to my place?

MIMI
I was on my way to work

BENNY
Black leather and lace
My desk was a mess
I think I'm still sore

MIMI
Cause I kicked him and told him I wasn't his whore

BENNY
Does your boyfriend know who your last boyfriend was?

ROGER
I'm not her boyfriend, I don't care what she does!

ANGEL
People, is this any way to start a new year, have compassion
Benny just lost his cat

BENNY
My dog, but i appreciate that

ANGEL
My cat had a fall, and I went through hell

BENNY
It's like losing a... How did you know that she fell?

COLLINS
Champagne?

BENNY
Don't mind if I do. To dogs...

ALL BUT BENNY
No, Benny, to you!

ANGEL
Let's make a resolution

MIMI
I'll drink to that

COLLINS
Let's always stay friends

JOANNE
Though we may have our disputes

MAUREEN
This family tree's got deep roots

MARK
Friendship is thicker than blood

ROGER
That depends

MIMI
Depends on trust

ROGER
Depends on true devotion

JOANNE
Depends on love

MARK
Depends on not denying emotion!

ROGER
Perhaps

ALL
It's gonna be a happy new year!

ROGER
I guess

ALL
It's gonna be a happy new year!

ROGER
You're right

ANGEL
It's gonna be a happy new year!

ROGER & MIMI
I'm sorry

ROGER
Coming

MIMI
In a minute. I'm fine. Go

THE MAN
Well, well, well. What have we here?
It's gonna be a happy new year. There, there...
