There was a little lady, Living down the block She had a little savings plan, Until it all got lost She went up to the gov’ner, Said “You’re taxing me to death!” He said, “You best be quiet, Or I’ll tax your dying breath!” Who’s got the matches? And who’s got to learn Let’s play a little fiddle, and watch it all burn Who’s got the gasoline? It’s really my turn To play a little fiddle, and watch it all burn There were some little children, Living by their means. They really did have nothing, Pa’d lost it all, it seems. They sat there in the corner, And cried themselves to sleep. The man from Old Chicago, Had taken all their dreams There was a sweet young family, Tryin’ to make ends meet They had a little baby, Crawlin’ ‘round their feet The man he came a-knockin’, Demanded, “ Let me in!” He said, “You know you owe. Fill my pockets. Let’s begin!” Who’s got the matches? And who’s got to learn Let’s play a little fiddle, and watch it all burn Who’s got the gasoline? It’s really my turn To play a little fiddle, and watch it all burn There was an older gentleman, His life spent in service He’d fought the Huns to Kingdom-Come, He opened up the beaches The man he came a-knockin’, Said, “All you have is really mine. You want to see a doctor? You’d better get in line!” There was a group of people, Who wanted one small thing. To celebrate their freedom, Be left alone to their own means. The gov’ner came a-knockin, “I only do what’s best for you. I’ll take your choice, consume your soul, And eat up all that Freedom!” Who’s got the matches? And who’s got to learn Let’s play a little fiddle, and watch it all burn Who’s got the gasoline? It’s really my turn To play a little fiddle, and watch it all burn

Marc was in the corner With Chloe singing songs I didn’t mean to! I didn’t mean to! Dancers spun around the room They knew it all along I didn’t mean to! I didn’t mean to! Bruce and Giles were arguing While everyone looked on I didn’t mean to! I didn’t mean to! I was tossed from man to man The laughter seemed to never end To never end A simple kiss upon the cheek That’s where the nightmare all began The quarrel spun around the room Deciding where to land Twenty-three betrayals by The people who were once all friends The Ides of March revisited With one man dead Trey met Tony at the door As Bruce went rushing by I didn’t mean to! I didn’t mean to! Tony turned around and looked When something caught his eye I didn’t mean to! I didn’t mean to! Bruce was kissing Julia Now someone’s got to lie I didn’t mean to! I didn’t mean to! She was tossed from man to man The laughter seemed to never end To never end A simple kiss upon the cheek That’s where the nightmare all began The quarrel spun around the room Deciding where to land Twenty-three betrayals by The people who were once all friends The Ides of March revisited With one man dead The whole place exploded When someone threw a chair I didn’t mean to! I didn’t mean to! Tables overturned Glasses flying through the air I didn’t mean to! I didn’t mean to! I found myself in Bruce’s hand I didn’t think he’d dare I didn’t mean to! I didn’t mean to! I was tossed from man to man The fighting seemed to never end To never end A simple kiss upon the cheek That’s where the nightmare all began The quarrel spun around the room Deciding where to land Twenty-three betrayals by The people who were once all friends The Ides of March revisited With one man dead

The pounding is much too loud The alarm clock didn’t go off But I have got bills to pay Oh, na zdorovie! My head feels just like a mine field The coffee pot is broken I’m gonna be late again Oh, na zdorovie! Five wives they are dancing now Dancing under heaven’s brow We’ll all toss the vodka down Oh, na zdorovie! Five wives they are dancing now Dancing through the underground We’ll all toss the vodka down Oh, na zdorovie! Oh, na zdorovie! I’ve got a long way to go The freeway’s stopped. It’s all backed up again. My gas light, it just came on Oh, na zdorovie! I stayed out too late again I wish he would just call me ‘Cause now I’m left wondering Oh, na zdorovie! Five wives they are dancing now Dancing under heaven’s brow We’ll all toss the vodka down Oh, na zdorovie! Five wives they are dancing now Dancing through the underground We’ll all toss the vodka down Oh, na zdorovie! Oh, na zdorovie! My friends are all gathered me Their laughter is contagious We’ll sing and we’ll dance and drink Oh, na zdorovie! The music is getting louder The dancing is frenetic We’ll drink some more vodka now Oh, na zdorovie! Five wives they are dancing now Dancing under heaven’s brow We’ll all toss the vodka down Oh, na zdorovie! Five wives they are dancing now Dancing through the underground We’ll all toss the vodka down Oh, na zdorovie! Oh, na zdorovie! Oh, na zdorovie!

I dreamt of a Spanish raven Of pewter she was made Drinking from a river’s edge Within a shadow’d glade Twelve moons danced before me Unraveling what was done Twelve moons danced before me I was the thirteenth one I was the thirteenth one The third eye of the Raven Sees her stories at night Listen close and she’ll tell You a riddle of truth tonight The sleepy sun rose golden red The land around me shone I saw a man just standing there In death, he was alone “I stopped the moon this morning So quietly,” he said He smiled at me. “She smiled,” said he Then slowly bowed his head He slowly bowed his head The third eye of the Raven Sees her stories at night Listen close and she’ll tell You a riddle of truth to… The circle spins in Heaven The circle spins on Earth The circle spins in Hell The circle spins my birth The circle spins again, again The circle spins my breath The circle spins again, again The circle spins my death I dreamt of a Spanish raven Of pewter she was made Drinking from a river’s edge Within a shadow’d glade Twelve moons danced before me Unraveling what was done Twelve moons danced before me I was the thirteenth one I was the thirteenth one The third eye of the Raven Sees her stories at night Listen close and she’ll tell You a riddle of truth to The third eye of the Raven Sees her stories at night Listen close and she’ll tell You a riddle of truth to- The third eye of the Raven Sees her stories at night Listen close and she’ll tell You a riddle of truth to The third eye of the Raven Sees her stories at night Listen close and she’ll tell You a riddle of truth tonight

Canta bella, canta bella Tira sonrisas hacia el cielo Canta bella, canta bella Oiga la risa aunque duele Ay que la luna llora tanto, oh___ Cuando el viento esta cantando, oh___ Pasan los dias como flores humildes Cada vez te veo me siento feliz Busca la miel a puesta del sol y va Aunque la amor va caminando Aunque la voz esta silenciado Aunque la luz en fin escapa Canta bella, canta bella Busca la luz como mariposa Canta bella, canta bella Recuerda que el sol no tiene esposa Ay que la luna esta llorando, oh____ Porque el sol esta escapando, oh____ Pasan las caras como gota de lluvia Cada vez te beso me siento feliz Como la miel a puesta del sol Aunque la amor va caminando Aunque la voz esta silenciado Aunque la luz en fin escapa Canta bella, canta bella Sabes que amor no tiene dueno Canta bella, canta bella Como cada dia sea un sueno Hay que el bosque esta esperando, oh___ Porque el sol va escapando, oh___ Pasan sus anos muy largas y lindas Cada dia vivo me siento feliz Comamos la miel a puesta del sol Aunque la amor va caminando Aunque la voz esta silenciado Aunque la luz en fin escapa

The day began as the mourning son Told us a tale of what was to come They came to town while the children played Hide and seek And ring-around-the rose Dogs were barking as the ravens cried Fires were burning all around Dogs were barking as the people cried We will not go! Sing, Little Bird Don’t worry ‘bout your things We’re gonna find us a brand new Spring Sing, Little Bird Sing your moving song Aaahhhhhhh! You are strong! Black coats and black souls march into our town Reprising Adolph's song They have no right to tell us where Where to live Or where to die They don't know our homes are in our hearts And our souls live in our song They don’t know our homes are in our souls Our souls will live on! Sing, Little Bird Don’t worry ‘bout your things We’re gonna find us a brand new Spring Sing, Little Bird Sing your moving song Aaahhhhhhh! The guns and tanks try to move us on They think they’ve beat us into the ground We will survive as we leave this town The ovens are fired But they burn empty now Our souls are singing as we leave again Hear our voices sing this song Our souls are singing as we leave again We will live on! Sing, Little Bird Don’t worry ‘bout your things We’re gonna find us a brand new Spring Sing, Little Bird Sing your moving song Aaahhhhhhh!

Float through the air with the greatest of ease. Plate after plate, just trying to please. Everyone gasped when she fell to her knees. A graceful descent from her flying trapeze. Eleven years are not too long. Just where did things go wrong? This is her circus song. Third of May. Run away. I’ll go to Florida Where the sun just shines. On the third of May I think I’ll run away. Third of May. Run away. I’ll go to Florida Where the sun just shines. It’s on the third of May I’ll run away. The greatest show with three rings in this town. Ringmaster, juggler, jester and clown, She walks a tightrope. She can’t hear a sound. They scream and cry but she’ll never come down. Eleven years are not too long. Just where did things go wrong? This is her circus song. Third of May. Run away. I’ll go to Florida Where the sun just shines. On the third of May I think I’ll run away. Third of May. Run away. I’ll go to Florida Where the sun just shines. It’s on the third of May I’ll run away. I’ll go to Florida. I’ll go to Florida. Where the sun just shines. Where the sun just shines. It’s on the third of May. The bearded lady collects what she’s owed. A cat in the rain as the fireworks explode. A new life waits as she heads down the road With no goodbye and no farewell note. Eleven years are not too long. Just where did things go wrong? This is her circus song. Third of May. Run away. I’ll go to Florida Where the sun just shines. On the third of May I think I’ll run away. Third of May. Run away. I’ll go to Florida Where the sun just shines. It’s on the third of May I’ll run away.

The kings are in the kitchen Stuffing blackbirds into pies The crier runs around the town Feeding flies their alibis Georgie Porgie kissed the boys Then told his wife a lie When the press came out to play Georgie Porgie cried Voices in my head, they are screaming Voices in my heart, they are singing Voices in my soul, they are burning Jack and Jill went up the Hill To see what they could bake When they got there the coffers were bare So they ate their neighbor’s cake Hickory dickory dock The rats ran up the clock The clock struck one and down they came And nothing was ever the same again No nothing was ever the same again No nothing was ever the same Voices in my head, they are screaming Voices in my heart, they are singing Voices in my soul, they are burning Ring around the roses A pocket full of lies Ashes to ashes and dust to dust We’re all gonna die Voices in my head, they are screaming Voices in my heart, they are singing Voices in my soul, they are burning

The words kept falling They just kept falling Out of her mouth But no one seemed to Nobody seemed to Hear them come out Tired of preaching to the deaf She jumped the pew and killed the choir instead The knife still bloody in her hand She climbed the stairs And now she stands Under the guillotine She lost her head (Instrumental break) She stood alone there Her eyes a blank stare Like Thursday’s moon Her mind stopped racing Her life was ending Ending too soon Tired of preaching to the deaf She jumped the pew and killed the choir instead The knife still bloody in her hand She climbed the stairs And now she stands Under the guillotine She lost her head The words kept falling They just kept falling Out of her mouth
