Rent - Today 4 U Lyrics

1996 Broadway
Rent the Musical - Today 4 U Lyrics


MARK & COLLINS
Bustelo - Marlboro
Banana by the bunch
A box of Captain Crunch will taste so good

COLLINS
And firewood

MARK
Look, it's Santa Claus

COLLINS
Hold your applause

ROGER
Oh hi

COLLINS
"Oh hi" after seven months?

ROGER
Sorry

COLLINS
This boy could use some Stoli

COLLINS, MARK & ROGER
Oh holy night

ROGER
Struck gold at MIT?

COLLINS
They expelled me for my theory of Actual Reality
Which I'll soon impart to the couch potatoes at New York University
Still haven't left the house?

ROGER
I was waiting for you, don't you know?

COLLINS
Well, tonight's the night
Come to the Life Cafe after Maureen's show

ROGER
No flow

COLLINS
Gentlemen, our benefactor on this Christmas Eve
Whose integrity is only matched by talent, I believe
A new member of the Alphabet City avant-garde
Angel Dumott Schunard

ANGEL
Today 4 U
Tomorrow for me

Today 4 U
Tomorrow for me

COLLINS
And you should hear her beat

MARK
You earned this on the street?

ANGEL
It was my lucky day today
On Avenue A
When a lady in a limousine
Drove my way
She said: "Darling be a dear
Haven’t slept in a year
I need your help
To make my neighbor's yappy dog disappear"
"This Akita, Evita, just won't shut up
I believe if you play nonstop that pup
Will breathe its very last
High strung breath
I'm certain that cur
Will bark itself to death"

Today 4 U
Tomorrow for me

Today 4 U
Tomorrow for me

We agreed on a fee
A $1000 guarantee
Tax free
And a bonus
If I trim her tree
Now who could foretell
That it would go so well
But sure as I am here
That dog is now in doggy hell
After an hour
Evita in all her glory
On the window ledge
Of that 23rd story
Like Thelma and Louise did
When they got the blues
Swan dove into
The courtyard of the Gracie Mews

Today 4 U
Tomorrow for me

Today 4 U
Tomorrow for me

Back on the street
Where I met my sweet
Where he was moaning and groaning
On the cold concrete
The nurse took him home
For some Mercurochrome
And I dressed his wounds
And got him back on his feet
Sing it!
Today 4 U
Tomorrow 4 me
Today 4 U
Tomorrow 4 me
I said Today 4 U
Tomorrow 4 me
Today 4 U
Tomorrow 4 me!
