Girls CINDERELLA Now now, fellas, it's all right. I'm not going to think about dirty socks. I'm going to think about the ball. All the ladies in their fancy dresses, and all the men with their handsome coats and mustaches, and -- Why sir, are you asking me to dance? How lovely! Oh, I can't wait. It will be a dream come true!
Boys PRINCE CHARMING Don't worry, I'll find a girl tonight! Not sure how, but I will. Here goes nothing. (clears his voice and take a big breath) Hello ... would you like to dance? I must warn you I'm not very good at it. But, I'll try.
"In My Own Little Corner" Cinderella: I'm as mild and as meek as a mouse When I hear a command I obey. But I know of a spot in my house where no one can stand in my way. In my own little corner in my own little chair I can be whatever I want to be. On the wing of my fancy I can fly anywhere and the world will open its arms to me.
"Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo" Salagadoola mechicka boola bibbidi-bobbidi-boo Put 'em together and what have you got Bibbidi-bobbidi Salagadoola mechicka boola bibbidi-bobbidi-boo It'll do magic believe it or not Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo Salagadoola means mechicka booleroo But the thingmabob that does the job is Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo Salagadoola mechicka boola bibbidi-bobbidi-boo Put 'em together and what have you got Bibbidi-bobbidi-Bibbidi-bobbidi-Bibbidi-bobbidiboo
"Ten Minutes Ago" Ten minutes ago I saw you I looked up when you came through the door. My head started reeling, You gave me the feeling The room had no ceiling or floor. Ten minutes ago I met you And we murmured our how-do-you-do's. I wanted to ring out the bells And fling out my arms And sing out the news.
Genie (Girl or Boy) Oy! Ten thousand years in a tin can’ll give you such a crick in the neck! (cracks his neck) Okay, that’s better! Now then, “Your wish is my command,” yadda yadda, you know the drill, so shoot... C’mon, kid, what’s it gonna be? Cash, camels, Casbahs? You want something... Hey? What did you say your name was? Aladdin? This is gonna be a snap! May I call you “Al?” You know, Al, you’re a lot smaller than my last master. Either that, or I’m getting bigger. Do these harem pants make me look fat?
Jasmine (Girl) Believe me, you’re not trapped. You’re free to go anywhere you want. Do anything you want. I’m sure that’s not the way it is in the palace. (sarcastic) Always perfectly wonderful. Never a dull moment. And all of those servants. And the servants of servants. Someone always watching you. Telling you where to go and who to see. Well, anyway, that’s how I imagine it would be.
Aladdin (Boy) But I do like Jasmine. I mean, “The Princess!” Ugh! I must’ve sounded so stupid! Then again, what does it matter? I’m never gonna see her again. Me, the “street rat”! Besides, she deserves a prince. Or at least someone better than me. Oh why did I ever meet her? Boy, I’m glad I met her. ... Look at all this junk! (A small lamp catches ALADDIN’s eye. He picks it up.) I bet no one’s been in here for years. Something’s written on this thing. Let’s see here. (ALADDIN rubs the lamp.)
Jafar (Girl or Boy) What am I working on? My penmanship. This very important document has a new paragraph I just added. Listen to this: “Should an unmarried Royal Princess, who is sole heir to the throne, fail to choose a husband within the time allotted for such selection, the Sultan’s highest-ranking official” – that would be me – “will immediately become betrothed to the Princess and will himself inherit all the rights, privileges, and powers of the Sultan.” So now all we must do is make sure she doesn’t fall for anybody before tomorrow. And if she does, we make sure he has a freakish, tragic accident.
Iago (Girl or Boy) The Street Rat is now Prince Ali! Uh, You could say “Thanks Iago” “That was brilliant, Iago” Aw, shucks, Boss, just doin’ my job. Hey, I bet he gets his power from the guy with the earring. Ten to one, he’s behind that carpet trick. Bet he’s better than a wizard or a sorcerer. Hint: Three Wishes! Bingo, Boss, he’s a GENIE! And there is a lamp. Get it, and YOU will have all the power!
"Friend Like Me" It's a musical Well, Ali Baba had them forty thieves, Scheherazade had a thousand tales. But mister you're in luck, 'cause up your sleeves You've got a brand of magic never fails You've got some power in your corner now! Some heavy ammunition in your camp! You got some punch, pizzaz, yahoo and how... See, all you gotta do is rub that lamp
And I'll say "Mr. Aladdin, sir, what will your pleasure be? It's a big musical! Let me take your order, jot it down?" You ain't never had friend like me, NO, NO, NO!
"A Whole New World" ALADDIN I can show you the world Shining, shimmering, splendid Tell me, princess, now when did You last let your heart decide?
I can open your eyes Take you wonder by wonder Over, sideways and under On a magic carpet ride
JASMINE A whole new world A new fantastic point of view No one to tell us no or where to go Or say we're only dreaming
ALADDIN A whole new world A dazzling place I never knew But when I'm way up here, it's crystal clear
ALADDIN AND JASMINE That now I'm in a whole new world with you
JASMINE Unbelievable sights Indescribable feeling Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling Through an endless diamond sky
SIDE ONE Mowgli AND Bagheera MOWGLI (stretching and yawning) Bagheera, I'm getting a little sleepy. Shouldn't we start back home?
BAGHEERA Mowgli, this time we're not going back. I'm taking you to a man-village. (A COCONUT TREE drops a coconut on MOWGLI, who catches it, breaks it open, and eats it.)
MOWGLI But why?
BAGHEERA Because Shere Khan the tiger has returned to this part of the jungle, and he wants to hurt you. (MOWGLI hops off BAGHEERA's back and climbs the COCONUT TREE, which hugs him.)
MOWGLI Me? But I've never even met him.
BAGHEERA He hates man. Man makes fire and hunts tigers with guns.
MOWGLI Oh, we'll just explain to him that I'd never do that.
BAGHEERA You can't explain things to tigers.
MOWGLI But I want to stay in the jungle!
BAGHEERA It's not safe for you anymore.
MOWGLI I can take care of myself!
BAGHEERA (chuckling) Alone? I don't think so. (yawning) Now, come down from there and get some rest. You're going to need it. (The COCONUT TREE gently releases MOWGLI as BAGHEERA finds a comfortable spot and falls asleep. MOWGLI, frustrated, curls up at the foot of the COCONUT TREE.)
MOWGLI Not safe for me anymore. HA!
SIDE TWO Mowgli AND Baloo MOWGLI (pushing away) Hey! You're not a rock!
BALOO (fending him off) Easy, man...
MOWGLI (preparing to punch) Get outta my way! (MOWGLI grunts and groans as he tries to punch and kick BALOO, to no effect.)
BALOO (laughing) Well, now. That's pretty big talk, little britches.
MOWGLI I'm warning you. You're asking for it!
BALOO You want to fight like a bear? Go ahead, give me a big bear growl. Scare me.
MOWGLI (gritting his teeth "ferociously") Rrrr.
BALOO Oh, boy. I'm talkin' about a big bear. Right from your toes.
MOWGLI (trying again) Grrrrrraaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.
BALOO No, silly. Like this: GRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!
SIDE THREE Ka AND Mowgli KAA 1 Ssss-say now. What have we here?
KAA 2 (giggles) Oh, it's a man-cub.
KAA 3 A delicious man-cub.
MOWGLI Who are you?
KAA 4 Why, I am Kaa.
KAA 5 Sssooooo nice to meet you.
KAA 6 I've been sssssooooo hungry for visitors! (KAA encircles MOWGLI, who stiffens, not sure what to do.)
MOWGLI Let me go!
KAA 1 Ssssssssilly man-cub!
KAA 2 Don't you trust me?
SIDE FOUR Hathi, Winifred, AND Sue
HATHI Esprit de Corps! Back in 88.
WINIFRED Here it comes, the Victoria-cross bit again.
SUE Not the Victoria-cross bit again? I can’t take it!
WINIFRED I need a pillow…somebody get me a pillow and an aspirin.
HATHI It was then I recieved the Victoria Cross for bravery above and beyond the call of duty. Ha-ha! Those were the days! Discipline. Discipline was the thing. Builds character and all that sort of thing. Oh, yes. Where was I? Aw, yes, inspection. And as for you-- Oh, there you are. Heh-heh-heh. Let's keep those heels together, shall we, son?
"Bear Necessities" Look for the bare necessities The simple bare necessities Forget about your worries and your strife I mean the bare necessities Old Mother Nature's recipes That brings the bare necessities of life
Wherever I wander, wherever I roam I couldn't be fonder of my big home The bees are buzzin' in the tree To make some honey just for me When you look under the rocks and plants And take a glance at the fancy ants Then maybe try a few
The bare necessities of life will come to you They'll come to you!
",,,Those who seek the lord lac no good thing." psalm 34:10
