Mr. Cladwell Lyrics

Album: Urinetown

Cladwell
I saw gray skies, foreboding and cold
I saw gray skies and made them rain gold
Now those skies aren't so bleak to behold
They're still gray but they pay for your salaries tenfold!
I took this town that formerly stank
I took this town and made it smell swank!
I made flushing mean flush at the bank!
I'm the man with the plan and so who should you thank?

McQueen
Whom!

Chorus
Mister Cladwell

Cladwell
Who? Me??

Chorus
We're so thankful

Cladwell
Oh, no

Chorus
For that bank full of dough!
You're a toreador
And it's cash that you gore!
Could we hope for much more?
We really doubt it!

Cladwell
You may be right there!

Chorus
Mister Cladwell
You've got riches
Which is just what we need!
We say "Hail to you, the Duke of the ducats!"

Cladwell
I can bring in bucks by the buckets!

Chorus
You're the master. You're making money!

Cladwell
Faster still than bees making honey!

Chorus
You're Mister Cladwell!

Hope
Gosh Daddy, I never realized large, monopolizing corporations could be
such a force for good in the world.

Cladwell
Few do.

McQueen
All those coins that we take from the throng
End up here where those coins all belong
Lots of coins make our company strong

Cladwell
Charging fees as we please is our right - it's not wrong!

McQueen
We're not greedy as some make us seem
We need funds for our big research team

Dr. Billeaux
Men in labcoats and test tubes with steam!

Cladwell and McQueen
What it shows no one knows
But, hey, still we can dream!

McQueen
Of!

Chorus
Mister Cladwell
Finding answers
Curing cancers
Of doubt!
Your ambitions are high
But you're
Humble as pie!
What a wonderful guy!
We simply love you!

Hope
Da-
Da, Da
Da, Da, Daddy
That's my Dad!
Daddy
Daddy
That's my Daddy
And I simply
Love you!

Cladwell
You're making me blush now!

Chorus
Mister Cladwell
You're so Godly!
Oddly perfect and right!

Men
You are continental, yet unpretentious!

Women
Fancy-free, yet so conscientious!

Men
Wise but trendy, tough as a mountain!

Chorus
Goodness flows from you like a fountain!
You're mister,
you're Mister -

Cladwell
Cladwell!

Chorus
Cladwell!
