Spin Those Records Lyrics

2019 Off-Broadway
Broadway Bounty Hunter the Musical - Spin Those Records Lyrics


ANNIE:
I used to be new
Everyone would cheer when I’d start to sing
And the papers called me the next big thing
I used to have you
They loved me a lot but you loved me most
I was always the subject of every toast

But now you’re gone
And now nobody’s cheering
The next big thing no longer lies ahead

Each day is an attempt at persevering
I wish each day was yesterday instead
And i saved
A dusty forty-five

ENSEMBLE:
Doo doo doo doo doo

ANNIE:
One that captures a voice from another time
A memento of when I was in my prime
Back then
When you were alive

ENSEMBLE:
Ooo

ANNIE:
I could play it, sure, but I never do
Cuz the music just makes me think of you
Anyway, I guess that it’s been a while
Since my forty-fives woulda been in style
Oh well
As far as i can tell

They don’t spin those records anymore
They don’t spin no records anymore
And even if they did I’d be too scared to sing along
Cuz what if i’ve forgotten the song?

I used to be strong

ENSEMBLE:
Doo doo doo doo doo

ANNIE:
And  my voice would kill in any key
Never had to take the harmony

I used to belong

ENSEMBLE:
Oo oo oo oo oo

ANNIE:
When the soundtrack at parties was sure to be
One that featured an album that featured me
They’d play
But not today

They don’t spin those records anymore

ENSEMBLE:
No they don’t

ANNIE:
They don’t spin no records anymore

ENSEMBLE:
No they don’t

ANNIE:
And even if they did I’d be too scared to sing along
Cuz what if I’ve forgotten the song?

Time moves forward, and it moves fast

ENSEMBLE:
Time! Oh yeah!

ANNIE:
Vinyl is a thing of the past

ENSEMBLE:
It’s a thing of the past, now, baby

ANNIE:
It’s living proof that nothing can last
A record long since played
Is sure to crack and fade

I don’t want to be young
No, I want a goal and I want a place
Where the eyes don’t roll when I show my face
There’s so many songs to be sung

But I’m much too tired to generate
A sound or a voice and it’s just too late
For me
So, regretfully

ENSEMBLE:
She won’t spin those records

ANNIE:
I won’t spin those records

ENSEMBLE:
She don’t spin no records anymore

ANNIE:
Leaving them inside the dusty drawer

ENSEMBLE:
And even if she did

ANNIE:
I wouldn’t want to sing along
Cuz I know that they’ve
Forgotten my

ANNIE, ENSEMBLE:
Song
My song
My song
My song

ANNIE:
And records make it clear to see
That the song’s forgotten me

(spoken) Goodnight, Charlie.
