Violet the Musical - Who'll Be The One (If Not Me) Lyrics

RADIO SINGER:
Who's gonna lace your kid-leather shoes
Who's gonna bounce you on his knee
Who's gonna heed your hullabaloos
Who'll be the one, if not me

YOUNG VI: (spoken)
Papa? Papa, it's me, Violet!

FATHER: (spoken)
What am I doing here?

YOUNG VI: (spoken)
Don't you recognize the farm? The flowers are new, I planted them myself

FATHER: (spoken)
What use are flowers?

YOUNG VI: (spoken)
You remember what you taught me?

YOUNG VI: (spoken)
Wait!

RADIO TRIO:
Dance with me darlin'
Stand on my toes

OLD LADY: (spoken)
Let him go, dear. Here, practice on me

RADIO TRIO:
Dance to the old-time me-lo-dee

YOUNG VI: (spoken)
It's the old lady!
Do you think my mama smelled like you?

RADIO TRIO:
Who's gonna love you do you suppose

OLD LADY: (spoken)
I can't say, dear. But I know she would have loved the smell of you.
There is nothing sweeter than a baby's head.

RADIO TRIO:
Who'll be the one, if not me

YOUNG VI: (spoken)
But is that all I get in this life?

OLD LADY: (spoken)
What do you mean, dear?

RADIO TRIO:
Rooster go cock-a-doodle-ooo, cock-adoodle-oodle-ive

MONTY: (spoken)
Ladies, ladies! Who here feels like dancing?

RADIO TRIO:
Rooster go cock-a-doodle-ooo, cock-adoodle-oodle-ee

OLD LADY: (spoken)
Oh! I've been dipped

RADIO SINGER:
Wake up, my dear, it's a quarter to five
Who'll be the one, if not me

MONTY: (spoken)
Little sister, care for a spin?

RADIO TRIO:
Hear the rooster crow

OLD LADY: (spoken)
Go ahead, dear. Isn't he fine!

RADIO TRIO:
Cock-a-doodle-oh

YOUNG VI: (spoken)
But…on the bus…

OLD LADY: (spoken)
Honey, I'm not on the bus now. I wish he could'a seen me in my flash!

RADIO TRIO:
Who's gonna love you

OLD LADY: (spoken)
A man like that asks you to dance, you dance

RADIO SINGER:
Do you suppose

MONTY: (spoken)
Who's that over there, little sister –

RADIO SINGER:
Who'll be the one
If the one is not me

OLD LADY: (spoken)
The dancin' don't last, but the memories do…

RADIO SINGER:
Who'll be the one, if not me

MONTY: (spoken)
Look at her, lying there all defenseless like that

YOUNG VI: (spoken)
You shouldn't read that

MONTY: (spoken)
"Praise God for Memphis and for two new friends."
One'a them is me! Maybe you're dreaming about me.
I hope we're up to something

YOUNG VI: (spoken)
I don't wanna hear any more

MONTY: (spoken)
"There's a Gideon Bible in my room,
and inside it are a lot of dirty words somebody wrote. It's like…"

VIOLET: (spoken)
It's like something Montgomery would do

MONTY: (spoken)
You think you're so smart

VIOLET: (spoken)
Smarter'n you

MONTY: (spoken)
You're full'a shit

VIOLET: (spoken)
So what are you doing hangin' around my room for?
