MUCH MORE (Harvey Schmidt (m) / Tom Jones (l) ) Barbra Streisand 1963 As sung by Barbra Streisand on her first Columbia recording ‘The Barbra Streisand Album’ in 1963. The song appeared in the 1960 Broadway musical ‘The Fantastiks. On and off Broadway, with over 17,000 performances, ‘ The Fantastiks’ is arguably the longest running musical in the world. Also sung by: Susan Egan Rita Gardner I'd like to swim in a clear blue stream Where the water is icy cold Then go to town in a golden gown And have my fortune told. Just once, just once Just once before I am old I'd like to be not evil But a little worldly wise To be the kind of girl designed To be kissed upon the eyes. I'd like to dance 'til two o'clock Or maybe dance 'til dawn Or if the band could stand it Just go on and on and on. Just once, just once Before the chance is gone I'd like to waste a week or two And never do a chore To wear my hair unfastened So it billows to the floor. To do the things I've dreamed about But never done before Perhaps I'm bad or wild or mad With lots of grief in store But I want much more than keeping house Much more, much more, much more.
