What is Urinetown? Lyrics

Album: Urinetown

LITTLE BECKY TWO SHOES:
What is Urinetown?
Urinetown's the end
Swift and brutal punishment, no need now to pretend!

HOT BLADES HARRY:
The trap door's sprung and then you're hung
And when they cut you down
They'll box you up and ship you out
And call it Urinetown!

THE POOR:
They'll box you up and ship you out
And call it Urinetown!
Town!
Town!
Town!
Town!

Dance? No! Never do they dance!
Those people down in Urinetown they never get the chance!
Dancing, forget it! Never, nada, nope!
Unless it's at the bottom of a rope!

LOCKSTOCK:
People hear lots of things about Urinetown, of course, and that's just
the way we like it. For example, a little boy once asked me, "Is
Urinetown actually a nice place to live? Gingerbread houses along
golden, frothy canals? Like Venice, only different?" I didn't say yes. I
didn't say no, either.

CLADWELL:
What is Urinetown?
Urinetown's a tool
An instrument of power to enforce my iron rule
So send your troops to all the stoops and let them understand
If Hope is not returned it's Urinetown for all the land!

THE POOR:
If Hope is not returned
It's Urinetown for all the land!
Land!
Land!
Land!
Land!

CLADWELL:
Dance?
Dance?
Do they think I'll dance?
Those people with my daughter want to make me change my stance
Stance-dance, forget it! Never, nada, nein!
I'll teach them not to take from me what's mine!

BOBBY:
What is Urinetown?
Urinetown's a lie
A means to keep the poor in check until the day they die!
I did not shirk their dirty work but things are different now
We'll fight for right with all our might until we win somehow!

BOBBY AND JOSEPHINE:
We'll fight for right with all our might until we win somehow!
How!
How!
How!
How!

BOBBY:
Dance!
Dance!
Listen to it dance!
My heart is like a stallion racing through a great expanse
Canyons of freedom that's where it will waltz
Performing coronary somersaults!

LITTLE SALLY:
What is Urinetown?
Urinetown is here!
It's the "town" wherever people learn to live in fear
So look around, you've finally found the place you asked about
For Urinetown is your town if you're hopeless down and out!

ALL:
For Urinetown is your town if you're hopeless, down and out!

LOCKSTOCK:
For Urinetown is your town if you're hopeless, down and out!

ALL:
Out!
Out!
Out!
Out!

Hey!
