Walkin' In The Sun Lyrics - Glen Campbell

NICK 

What the hell are musicals? 

NOSTRADAMUS 

It appears to be a play where the dialogue stops, and the plot is conveyed through song! 

NICK 

Through song? 

NOSTRADAMUS 

Yes! 

NICK 

Wait wait - so an actor is saying his lines and then, out of nowhere, he just starts...singing? 

NOSTRADAMUS 

Yes! 

NICK 

Well that is the... 

(sung) 

Stupidest thing that I have ever heard 

You're doing a play, got something to say 

So you sing it? It's absurd! 

Who on earth is going to sit there 

While an actor breaks into song? 

What possible thought could the audience think 

Other than, "this is horribly wrong?" 

NOSTRADAMUS 

Remarkably, they won't think that. 

NICK 

Seriously? Why not? 

NOSTRADAMUS 

Because... 

(sung) 

It's 

Musical 

A musical 

And nothing's as amazing as 

A musical 

With song and dance, and sweet romance 

And happy endings happening by happenstance 

Bright lights, stage fights 

And a dazzling You wanna be great? Then you gotta create 

A musical 

NICK 

I don't know, I find it hard to believe people would actually pay to see something like this 

NOSTRADAMUS 

Let's just say it's a Saturday night, and you want to go out on the town 

Got a lady to flatter who might "give it up" if you don't let her down 

You could go see a tragedy, but that wouldn't be very fun 

Or a play from Greek mythology - see a Mother have sex with her son! 

NICK 

Eeuwwrrgh!! 

NOSTRADAMUS 

You could go see a drama, with all of that trauma and pain 

Or go see something more relaxing and less taxing on the brain 

Go 

See 

Musical 

A musical 

A poppy piece releasing all 

Your blue-sicals 

Where crooners croon (Ahhhh) a catchy tune 

And limber little ladies thrill ya 'til ya swoon 

Oohs, aahs, big applause 

And a standing ovation 

NOSTRADAMUS & The future is bright if you could just write 

A musical 

NOSTRADAMUS 

Some make you happy 

Some make you sad 

Some are quite big 

Some quite small 

Some are too long 

Some are just plays with song (Ahhh) 

Some musicals have 

No talking at all 

NICK 

No talking at all? 

NOSTRADAMUS (sung) 

That's right, there's no talking 

All of the dialogue is sung 

In a very dramatic fashion 

NICK 

Umm, really? 

NOSTRADAMUS (sung) 

Yes, really 

NICK 

There's no talk- 

NOSTRADAMUS (sung, interrupting NICK) 

There's no talking 

And they often stay on one note for a very long time 

So that when they change to a different note 

You notice 

And it's supposed to create a dramatic effect 

But mostly you just sit there asking yourself, 

"Why aren't they talking?" 

NICK 

Sounds miserable 

NOSTRADAMUS (sung) 

I believe it's pronounced 

'Misérables' 

NICK 

And people actually like this? 

NOSTRADAMUS 

No - they LOVE it! And what's not to love! 

(sung) 

It's such a delight 

There's nothing quite like 

A musical 

(spoken) 

Oo! Another vision! I haven't even told you the best part yet! 

(sung) 

Feel that fascinating rhythm moving to your feet 

NICK 

Uh, what is that? 

NOSTRADAMUS 

Feel your ass gyrating to that titillating beat 

NICK 

Woah - are you okay? 

NOSTRADAMUS 

You slap your lap 

Then finger-snap 

That's when you know 

It's time to TAP! 

Ooohhhhh! 

NICK 

What the hell are you doing now? 

NOSTRADAMUS 

It's called a dance break! Apparently this happens in musicals as well! People on stage just burst into spontaneous dance! 

NICK 

Why? Does it advance the plot? 

NOSTRADAMUS 

No! 

NICK 

Advance character? 

NOSTRADAMUS 

Not necessarily 

NICK 

Then why do it? 

NOSTRADAMUS 

Because - it's entertaining!! 

Five! Six! Seven! Eight!! 

(dance break) 

NOSTRADAMUS 

Another vision! 

It's a musical 

Whaddaya-talk whaddaya-talk 

It's a musical 

A Seussical? 

No a musical 

With girls on stage 

A musical 

NOSTRADAMUS 

We've got sappy repartee 

And the women are risqué 

And the boys are kind-of gay 

A musical 

NOSTRADAMUS 

A true blue new 

NOSTRADAMUS & Musical 

NOSTRADAMUS 

Stand back! 

It's a musical 

Some musicals are very serious 

A big glittering 

NOSTRADAMUS & Musical 

A musical 

(in the style of Annie) 

It's a musical for us 

NOSTRADAMUS 

A big and shiny 

Mighty fine-y 

Glitter, glitz and line-y 

Bob your head and shake your hiney 

Musical 

It's a musical (it's a musical) 

It is a musical (it's a musical) 

NICK 

YES! I get it now! 

(sung) 

We'll do a musical 

NOSTRADAMUS 

No kidding! 

NICK 

A musical 

What could be more amazing than 

A musical 

With song and dance, and sweet romance 

And with a musical we might have half a chance 

BOTH 

Oohs, aahs, big applause 

With everyone cheering for us 

NOSTRADAMUS 

And for some unexplainable reason 

The crowd goes wild every time 

When dancers kick in unison 

In one big won-der-ful line 

ALL 

And then you got yourself 

A musical 

A musical 

A la-la-la-la-la-la-la-paloozical 

With splashy style 

And a big, fake smile 

A snazzy handsome, jazzy hands 

I swear that I'll 

Cross my heart, hope to die 

If it isn't a doozy 

NOSTRADAMUS 

Take it from me 

They'll be flocking to see 

BOTH 

Your star-lit, won't quit, big hit 

Musical 

ALL 

A big hit musical!
