The Song That Goes Like This

   

Galahad: Once in every show

There comes a song like this

It starts off soft and low

And ends up with a kiss.

Oh where is the song

That goes like this?

   

(spoken) Where is it? Where? Where?

  

Lady of the Lake: A sentimental song

That casts a magic spell.

They all will hum along 

We'll overact like hell.

For this is our song that goes like this

 

Galahad: (spoken) Yes it is

 

Lady: (spoken) Yes it is

 

Galahad: (spoken) Yes it is!

 

Lady: (spoken) Yes it is!

 

Galahad: Now we can go straight

Right down the middle eight

A bridge that is too far for me

 

Lady: I'll sing it in your face

While we both embrace

 

Both: And then

We change

The key-y

 

Galahad: (in high falsetto) Now we're into E!

(back to normal key) *cough* That's awfully high for me

Lady: But as everyone can see

We should have stayed in D

Both: For this is our song that goes like this!

 

Galahad: I'm feeling very proud

Lady: You're singing far too loud

Galahad: That's the way that this song goes

Lady: You're standing on my toes

Both: Singing our song that goes like this!

 

Lady: I can't believe there's more

Galahad: It's far too long, I'm sure.

Lady: That's the trouble with this song

It goes on and on and on.

Both: For this is our song that is too long!

 

They strike poses as if the song is ending, but it instead enters the next musical bridge. They swear.

 

Lady: We'll be singing this 'til dawn

Galahad: (threatening the orchestra's conductor) You'll wish that you weren't born.

Lady: Let's stop this damn refrain

Both: Before we go insane

For our song always ends like thiiiiiiiiiiiis!
