Stephen Sondheim - Last Midnight Lyrics

An American composer and lyricist
Stephen Sondheim - Last Midnight Lyrics

(from Into the Woods the Musical)

It's the last midnight,
It's the last wish,
It's the last midnight,
Soon it will be boom squish,
Told a little lie,
Stole a little gold,
Broke a little vow,
Did you?
Had to get your prince,
Had to get your cow,
Had to get your wish,
Doesn't matter how,
Anyway it doesn't matter now,
It's the last midnight,
It's the boom splat,
Nothing but a vast midnight,
Everybody smashed flat,
Nothing you can do,
Not exactly true,
You could always give her the boy,
No of course what matters is the blame,
Someone you can blame,
Fine if that's the thing you enjoy,
Placing the blame, if that's the aim,
Give me the blame,
Just give me the boy,
You're so pure,
But stay here and in time you'll mature,
And grow up to be them,
So let's fly,
You and I, far away,
I'm the hitch,
I'm what no one believes,
I'm the witch,
There are liars and thieves
Like your father, just like you will be too.
Oh why bother?
They just do what they do.
It's the last midnight,
So goodbye, all.
Coming at you fast, midnight,
Soon you'll see the sky fall,
Jack, you want a bean?
Have another bean.
Beans are made for making you rich,
Plant them and they'll soar,
Here you want some more?
Listen to the roar,
Giants by the score,
Oh, you can blame another witch.
It's the last midnight,
It's the last verse,
Now before it's past midnight,
I'm leaving you my last curse.
I'm leaving you alone,
Squirming in the mess that you made,
Fix it on your own,
Time for me to go I'm afraid.
Back to what I know,
Back to long ago,
Safe inside the world that I'm from,
Where they're ugly and sperm,
With my powers returned,
And I fear, midnight's here,
Time to disappear,
Mother here I come!
