TOM SAWYER From the film: "Tom Sawyer" aka "A Musical Adaptation of Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer" - 1973 (Robert B. Sherman / Richard M. Sherman) Sung by Aunt Polly (Celeste Holm), Cousin Sidney (Joshua Hill Lewis) & Cousin Mary (Susan Joyce) Polly: Uncouth, irreverent, wild, That irresponsible child I try to teach him, But who can reach him? He never can be found, Leaves his trash around Just won't learn And he just keeps turnin' away Tom Sawyer The devil's got him in tow Tom Sawyer He's grief and worry and woe He's late for supper And he's late for school He's takin' me for a fool I'll bet Tom Sawyer'll Be the death of me yet Sidney: Tome goes out with Huck, Swimmin' in the nude Tom tears all his clothes And he talks so crude Hides dead snakes and things Underneath the stairs And in Sunday school Never knows this prayers Mary: Tom's a good boy, Tom is kind Tom holds wonders in his mind Tom's an orphan Can't you see? He needs our love and sympathy [Mary and Sidney singing simultaneously] Mary: Tom has gumption Tom is strong Sidney: Tom's so dishonest Always tellin' lies If he breaks his neck It won't be no surprise Mary: He loves to play And fish and swim Sidney: Tom can[`t find his head Every other day Mary: You just wish you were like him Sidney: And when he's around, I wish he'd go away Polly: [Sings alone] Tom Sawyer That Tom in turnin' me gray Tarnation He'll never learn to obey I know that boy to me Can be such a joy to me If he'd only be good But he's always Wastin' his time away Exasperatin' me every day No ambition and no respect He'll be the death of me yet Polly: [Talking] Worms! Oh, Tom Sawyer! [Polly, Sidney and Mary singing simultaneously till end of song] Polly: Tom Sawyer That irresponsible child That Tom, Tom Sawyer Uncouth, irreverent, wild That Tom He's late for supper And late for school And he's takin' me for a fool He just won't learn And he keeps on turnin' I'll bet Tom Sawyer'll Be the death of me I'll bet Tom Sawyer'll Be the death of me yet! Sidney: Tome goes out with Huck, Swimmin' in the nude Tom tears all his clothes And he talks so crude Hides dead snakes and things Underneath the stairs And in Sunday school Never knows this prayers Tom's so dishonest Always tellin' lies If he breaks his neck It won't be no surprise Tom can`t find his head Every other day And when he's around, I wish he'd go away Mary: Tom's a good boy, Tom is kind Tom holds wonders in his mind Tom's an orphan Can't you see? He needs our love and sympathy Tom has gumption Tom is strong He loves to play And fish and swim You just wish you were like him (Transcribed by Carlene Bogle - April 2004)
