Musicals – Evita – Santa Evita lyrics

For I love you
[Che:] Turn a blind eye, Evita
Tell Heaven I’m doing my best
[Che:] Turn a blind eye
I’m praying for you, even though you’re already blessed

[Workers:]
Santa Santa Evita
Madre de todos los ninos
De los tiranizados, de los descamisados
De los trabajadores, de la Argentina For I love you, tell Heaven I’m doing my best
I’m praying for you, even though you’re already blessed

Please, mother Eva, will you look upon me as your own? [Children:]
Please, gentle Eva, will you bless a little child? Make me special, be my angel
Be my everything wonderful perfect and true
And I’ll try to be exactly like you

Please, holy Eva, will you feed a hungry child? For I love you, tell Heaven I’m doing my best
I’m praying for you, even though you’re already blessed

Please, mother Eva, will you feed a hungry child?

Musicals – Evita – She Is A Diamond lyrics

She’s not a bauble you can brush aside
She’s been out doing what we just talked about, example
Gave us back our businesses, got the English out
And when you think about it, well why not do
One or two of the things we promised to? [Peron:]
But on the other hand, she’s all they have
She’s a diamond in their dull gray lives
And that’s the hardest kind of stone
It usually survives
And when you think about it, can you recall
The last time they loved anyone at all? But on the other hand, she’s slowing down
She’s lost a little of that magic drive
But I would not advise those critics present to derive
Any satisfaction from her fading star
She’s the one who’s kept us where we are

[Officers:]
She’s the one who’s kept you where you are

Musicals – Evita – The Lady’s Got Potential lyrics

Who did not feel the need to be elected

They had themselves a party at the point of a gun
They were slightly to the right of Atilla the Hun
A bomb or two and very few objected

Yeah, just one shell and governments fall like flies, kapow, die
They stumble and fall, bye bye
Backs to the wall, aim high
We’re having a ball
The tank and bullet rule as democracy dies

The lady’s got potential, she was setting her sights
On making it in movies with her name in lights
The greatest social climber since Cinderella

OK, she couldn’t act but she had the right friends
And we all know a career depends
On knowing the right fella to be stellar

Yeah, just one shell and governments lose their nerve, kapow, die
They stumble and fall, bye bye
Backs to the wall, aim high
We’re having a ball
That’s how we get the government we deserve

Now the man behind the President calling the shots
Involved so discreetly in a lot of their plots
Was Colonel Juan Peron, would be dictator

He began in the army out in Italy so
Saw Mussolini’s rise from the very front row
I reckon he’d do likewise sooner or later

Yeah, just one blast and the tear gas falls like rain, kapow, die
They haven’t a chance, bye bye
The terrorists advance
But one guy doesn’t dirty his hands
Peron was biding time out in the slow lane

Yeah, suddenly an earthquake hit the town of San Juan, kapow, die
They stumble and fall, bye bye
Keep away from the wall
But one guy was having a ball
The tragedy, a golden chance for Peron

He organized a concert with incredible flair
In aid of all the victims, such a grand affair
Politicians, actors, stars of every flavor

It was January twenty-second, 1944
A night to remember, yeah, that’s for sure
For that’s the night that Peron first met Eva
For that’s the night that Peron first met Eva [Che:]
In June of forty-three there was a military coup
Behind it was a gang called the G.O.U.

Musicals – JEKYLL AND HYDE THE MUSICAL – I Need To Know lyrics

His soul is black when he turns his back upon good

I need to find
A way to get inside the tortured mind of man
I need to try
To separate the good and evil, if I can

One thing is certain—the evil is stronger
Good fights hopeless and desperate fight
I must find ways of adjusting the balance
To bring him back from the empty black edge of night! I need to learn
The secrets of the mind that we can not discern
I need to learn
The things that make men pass the point of no return

Why does a wise man take leave of his senses? Dear God, guide me
Show me how to succeed
With your wisdom inside me
Henry Jekyll will follow where ever you lead! But how to go? I need to know! I need to know! When does intelligence give way to madness? What is it makes him be less than he should? I need to know! Where is that fine line where sanity melts? I need to see
The truth other men cannot see
To be things that others can’t be
Give me the courage to go where no angel will go
And I will go! A moment comes when a man becomes something else

I need to know
Why man plays this strange double game
His hand always close to the flame
It’s a deal with the Devil he cannot disclaim
But what’s his aim? Why is he doomed not to reach his potential? I need to go
Where no man has ventured before
To search for the key to the door
That will end all this tragic and senseless decay! [JEKYLL]
I need to know
The nature of the demons that possess Man’s soul
I need to know
Why man’s content to let them make him less than whole

Why does he revel in murder and madness?

Musicals – JEKYLL AND HYDE THE MUSICAL – In His Eyes lyrics

LUCY:
I sit and watch the sky. LISA:
I think of him,
How we were… LUCY/LISA:
Remember… LUCY:
In his eyes I see a gentle glow,
And that’s where I’ll be safe, I know! LUCY:
Now I realize –

LUCY/LISA:
Everything worth living for
Is there, in his eyes! LISA:
By looking in his eyes,
Will I see beyond tomorrow? And I can hear it breathe a sign… LUCY/LISA:
But most of all the look
That hypnotized me! LUCY:
But I don’t know quite where to start… Now I realize –

LUCY:
Now I realize –

LUCY/LISA:
Everything worth living for
Is there, in his eyes! LUCY:
And when I think of him,
Then I remember… LISA:
Love is worth forgiving for! LISA:
Will his eyes reveal to me
Promises or lies? LUCY:
But, sadly,
I’m not wise,
It’s hard to talk away
The mem’ries that you prize! LISA:
I know their every look,
His eyes! LUCY:
By looking in his eyes,
Will I see beyond the sorrow
That I feel? LISA:
Love is worth forgiving for! LISA:
I sit and watch the rain,
And see my tears run down the windowpane… LISA:
In his eyes I can see
Where my heart longs to be! LISA:
If I’m wise,
I will walk away,
And gladly… LUCY:
But he can’t conceal from me
The love in his eyes! LUCY:
They’re like an open book,
His eyes! LISA:
Safe in his arms, close to his heart…

Musicals – JEKYLL AND HYDE THE MUSICAL – Lucy Meets Jekyll lyrics

(she hums) If you only knew
The games we could play, the things we could do

Yet I can see you’re not up to the chase! And yet I sense: there’s more to you

You flatter, sir, you really do! But, if you’re ever in need:
I am the girl, and this is the place. you never know… You need a friend… [JEKYLL]

Musicals – JEKYLL AND HYDE THE MUSICAL – No One Knows Who I Am lyrics

Look at me and tell me who I am
Why I am
What I am
Will I survive? Am I the one who must finish last? Look at me and tell me who I am
Why I am
What I am
Call me a fool and it’s true, I am
I don’t know who I am
It’s such a shame
I’m such a sham
No one knows who I am

Once there were sweet possibilities
I could see
Just for me
Now all my dreams are just memories
Fated never to be

Time’s not a friend
Hurrying by
I wonder who am I

Am I the face of the future? If no one knows who I am
Nobody knows
Not even you
No one knows who I am Am I the face of the past? Who will give a d***?

Musicals – JEKYLL AND HYDE THE MUSICAL – No One Must Ever Know lyrics

It’s such a fine line
Between a good man and a bad… I’ll search the world until the answer’s found! Somehow I’ve got to go on
Till the evil has been defeated,
Till my work’s compleated –
I will not be cheated! Am I a mad man? Have I really lost my way? Find the course I charted
When I first departed. After midnight. Somehow I have to get back
To the place where my journey started. The beast has taken a heavy toll, not only on me, who can yet be saved, but on others, who cannot. No one must ever know
What I have done
For if anyone does
All my work is undone
And I must gain control
Of this monster inside
In the name of the people who’ve died! I am dangerous – more dangerous than any wild animal stalking its prey… In the battle of wills
That is raging inside,
Will I end up as me, or as Hyde? And see the view I saw before. The transformations are starting to recur of their own accord. Could it be? I remain convinced there is a way to counteract the effects of the formula, but I must have new chemicals for the antidote soon. I’ll find a way back to the higher ground! You must help me carry on! Have I lost my mind? JEKYLL
October 7th. From what fate has shattered –
I’ll retrieve what mattered! Every day they say they will be delivered, but still they do not come! Somehow I have to rebuild
All the dreams that the wind have scattered. And then success will pound upon my door! I cannot bear much more. Somehow I have to hang on
To the vision that first inspired me,
To the hope that fired me
When the world admired me! The experiment is out of control. But how to deal
With a foe I can’t see
Who whenever he wants
Takes possession of me? I dare not leave this place. When it seems all hope has gone,
I have got to carry on! Am I a good man? Will I lose the day? God!

Musicals – JEKYLL AND HYDE THE MUSICAL – Once Upon A Dream (Lisa) lyrics

Once upon a dream,
I was lost in love’s embrace. I knew there’d be a price… Are you just a dream? Could we begin again
Once upon a dream … Once upon a dream
You were heaven sent to me. And I was unafraid,
The dream was so exciting. Once there was a time
Like no other time before. But now I see it fade
And I am here alone! Hope was still an open door
Once upon a dream. LISA
When this all began… Was it never meant to be? There I found a perfect place,
Once upon a dream.

Musicals – JEKYLL AND HYDE THE MUSICAL – Possessed lyrics

[LISA]
When this all began
You knew there’d be a price to pay
Too late now to turn away
You have come too far
I know you’ll find a way [JEKYLL]
Lisa, all my life I’ve been possessed
By one great all consuming quest
And that’s my driving reason to survive! You and I together will be… [LISA]
Henry, please believe me
I see everything there is to see! Henry, I adore you
Always have done, always will do
But I, too, have dreams! [JEKYLL]
Darling, try to see what I see! [JEKYLL]
Then what, by God, am I supposed to do?! Maybe not as grand as yours
Or hard to understand as yours
But nonetheless my dreams! [LISA]
My love, you know
I live to see that dream come true
My world consists of it and you
Together we will keep the dream alive!

Musicals – Jesus Christ Superstar: This Jesus Must Die lyrics

His glamor increases
By leaps every minute, He’s top of the poll

I see bad things arising
The crowd crown Him king
Which the Romans would ban
I see blood and destruction
Our elimination because of one man
Blood and destruction because of one man

Because, because, because of one man
Our elimination because of one man
Because, because, because of one
‘Cause of one, ’cause of one man

What then to do about this Jesus mania? Good Caiaphas, the council waits for you
The Pharisees and priests are here for you
Ah gentlemen, you know why we are here
We’ve not much time, and quite a problem here

Hosanna, Superstar
Hosanna, Superstar
Hosanna, Superstar
Hosanna, Superstar

Listen to that howling mob of blockheads in the street
A trick or two with lepers, and the whole town’s on its feet

He is dangerous
Jesus Christ Superstar
He is dangerous
Tell us that you’re who they say you are

That man is in town right now to whip up some support
A rabble rousing mission that I think we must abort

He is dangerous
Jesus Christ Superstar
He is dangerous

Look Caiaphas, they’re right outside our yard
Quick Caiaphas, go call the Roman guard
No, wait
We need a more permanent solution to our problem

What then to do about Jesus of Nazareth? Where do we start with the man who is bigger
Than John was when John did His baptism thing? Fools! Miracle wonder man, hero of fools
No riots, no army, no fighting, no slogans
One thing I’ll say for Him, Jesus is cool

We dare not leave Him to His own devices
His half-witted fans will get out of control
But how can we stop him? You have no perception! [e=38289]How to we deal with a Carpenter King[/e]? The stake we are gambling are frighteningly high
We must crush Him completely
[e=37962]So like John before Him, this Jesus must die[/e]

For the sake of the nation, this Jesus must die
Must die, must die, this Jesus must die
So like John before Him, this Jesus must die
Must die, must die, this Jesus must, Jesus must, Jesus must die

Musicals – JEKYLL AND HYDE THE MUSICAL – Prologue lyrics

[JEKYLL, spoken]
In each of us, there are two natures. It is the curse of mankind that these polar twins should be constantly struggling… If this primitive duality of man—good and evil—could be housed in separate identities, life would be relieved of all that is unbearable.

Musicals – JEKYLL AND HYDE THE MUSICAL – Bring On The Men lyrics

I suppose a rose by any other name
The perfume and the prick’s the same

(interlude with prostitutes teasing johns)

[LUCY]
I like to have a man for breakfast each day
I’m very social and I like it that way
By late mid-morning I need something to munch
So I ask over two men for lunch

And men are mad about my afternoon teas
They’re quite informal, I just do it to please
Those triple sandwiches are my favorite ones
I’m also very partial to buns

My healthy appetite gets strongest at night
My at-home dinners are my men-friends’ delight
When I invite the fellas over to dine
They all come early, in bed by nine

[LUCY]
So let’s bring on the men
And let the fun begin
A little touch of sin
Why wait another minute

Step this way, it’s time for us to play
They say we may not pass this way again
So let’s waste no more time
Bring on the men! I always knew, I always said
That silk and lace in black and red
Will drive a man right off his head, it’s easy

So many men, so little time
I want them all, is that a crime? [LUCY (with prostitutes in background)]
There was a time, I don’t know when
I didn’t have much time for men
But this is now and that was then, I’m learning

A girl alone, all on her own
Must try to have a heart of stone
So I try not to make it known, my yearning

I try to show I have no need
I really do – I don’t succeed

So let’s bring on the men
And let the fun begin
A little touch of sin
Why wait another minute

Step this way, it’s time for us to play
They say we may not pass this way again
So let’s waste no more time
Bring on the men! They break your heart
They steal your soul
Take you apart
And yet they somehow make you whole

So what’s the game? [PROSTITUTE ENSEMBLE]
Big men, small men
Short men, tall men
I guess that means almost all men
I’m a player, long as they are men men men! [LUCY]
I don’t know why they say that I’m too easy

They make me laugh, they make me cry
They make me sick, so God knows why

We say bring on the men
And let the fun begin
A little touch of sin
Why wait another minute

Step this way, it’s time for us to play
They say we may not pass this way again
So let’s waste no more time
Bring on the men! [MEN]
No!

Musicals – JEKYLL AND HYDE THE MUSICAL – Confrontation lyrics

JEKYLL
If I die,
You die too! Deep inside -! Hyde is here to stay,
No matter what you may pretend-
And I’ll flourish, long after you’re gone! JEKYLL
All that you are
Is the end of a nightmare! JEKYLL
No – never! Do you think I’d ever set you free? HYDE
I’m what you face
When you face in the mirror! JEKYLL
No! After tonight,
I shall end this demon dream! You are Hyde! JEKYLL
Can’t you see
It’s over now? JEKYLL
All that you are
Is a face in the mirror! Long as you live, I will still be here! It’s such a fine line
Between a good man and a… I live deep inside you! You cannot choose but to loose control

HYDE
You can’t control me! JEKYLL
Dam you, Hyde! HYDE
I’ll see you there, Jekyll! Am I a mad man? HYDE
I am you! Set me free! HYDE
No, not I! HYDE
This is not a dream, my friend-
And it will never end! HYDE
For I’ll live inside you forever! And I’ll rejoice
As you breathe your final breath! Take all your evil deeds,
And rot in hell! JEKYLL
No! Each day you’ll feel me devour your soul! All that you are is a dying scream! HYDE
And I know that, now and forever,
They’ll never be able to separate
Jekyll from Hyde! HYDE
Do you really think
That I would ever let you go? JEKYLL
I don’t need you to survive,
Like you need me! You will never get away from me! HYDE
You’ll die in me,
I’ll be you! This one is the nightmare that goes on! Only you! JEKYLL
Soon you will die,
And my memory will hide you! I close my eyes, and you’ll disappear! If you do, I’m sad to say,
It simply isn’t so. JEKYLL
No! I’ll become whole
As you dance with death! HYDE
Yes, forever! HYDE
With Satan himself by my side! It’s time to die! HYDE
Can’t you see,
You are me? JEKYLL
God d*** you, Hyde! JEKYLL
It’s over now, I know inside
No one will ever know
The sorry tale of Edward Hyde
And those who died
No one must ever know
They’d only see the tragedy
They’d not see my intent
The shadow of Hyde’s evil
Will forever kill
The good that I had meant

Am I a good man?
