TOMMY: Oh no, it's sort of a shimmerish kind of quimmerish, flibbery- gibberish sensation. PETULA: Does it make you feel humming birds in your heart? TOMMY: Butterflies in me feet PETULA: And bees in your bonnet TOMMY: Stars in me britches PETULA: Does it make you want to dance? TOMMY: I hadn't noticed PETULA: And sing? TOMMY: Oh, it does, it does.... TOMMY: Something sweet Something sort of grandish Sweeps my soul When thou art near My heart feels so sugar candish My head feels so ginger beer (Laughter) Something so dareish So I don't careish Stirs me from limb to limb It's so terrifish, magnifish, delish To have such an amorish, glamorish dish We could be, oh, so bride and groomish Skies could be so bluish blue Life could be so love in bloomish If my ishes could come true PETULA: Thou art sweet Thou art sort of grandish Thou outlandish cavalier From now on, we're hand in handish Romeo TOMMY: And Guinevere Thou'rt so adorish Toujours l'amourish I'm so cherchez la femme PETULA: Why should I vanquish Relinquish, resish TOMMY: When I simply relish this hellish condish I might be manish or mouseish I might be a fowl or fish But with thee I'm Eisenhowzish Please accept my propasish BOTH: You're under my skinish So please be give-inish Or it's the beginish of the finish of me ************************** REPRISE: Children, if you help me find the little gold crock You can have anything that's made in fairyland There'll be things plenty for allish Wondrish toys and magic tricks Electrish trains and basket ballish Mintish drops and licorice stick Life will be keenish all halloweenish And jelly beanish too With ice-cream, and cakish And soda to sup And no bellyacheish To wakeish you up There will be such delicious dishes And will end to this daffyish plot We will go from wretch to riches When we'll find that goldish pot There will be chocolate castish With hot-dogs, and mustish But cheers! ev'rybodysh Must fastish come trough *********************************
