Look At The Sky lyrics

Album: Urinetown

Penny
You've got a sweet lookin' head, Bobby, a sweet lookin' head! But you
keep it up there in the clouds day after day after day and it's gotta
come down from there. You hear me?! Get that head out of the clouds,
Bobby Strong! You get it out of the clouds!

Bobby
Off in the distance there's a beautiful horizon
Gleaming and radiant, it's what I'll keep my eyes on
As the world turns to face the sun and start another day
It suddenly occurs to me that maybe we can find another way
Look at the sky
Full of hope and promise
It's a shining ideal
How I reel when I look at the sky
Daily we make them pay their nickles dimes and quarters -
Daily we break them 'cause we have to follow orders
And we keep filling moneybags with broken lives and dreams
But what's it for? I can't ignore
These black immoral profit-making schemes
Look at the sky
High above this madness!
Here below feel our shame!
It must stop in the name
Of the sky!

Penny
The fee is the law, Bobby Strong.

Bobby
And what if there was a new law in town, Ms. Pennywise? A new law that
didn't come from any voting process or elected body or process of
judicial review, but a brand new law that came from an organ. That's
right, a muscular, blood-pumping organ. Like this one -- right here.

Penny
A muscular organ?

Bobby
Can't you see it, Ms. Pennywise? Well, if this one's too small for you
why not try this one on for size?!

Penny
It's...it's blinding me!

Bobby
Look at the sky!
There's a great big heart there!
There's a heart In the sky
There just is, don't ask why
It's the sky!

Penny
Don't do this, Bobby. You'll regret it.

Bobby
I don't think so. C'mon, Ma. This one's on the house.
For everyone! Forever!

The Poor
Hooray!

Soupy Sue
Your heart knows all things great and true

Tiny Tom
The things mere brains can never know

Josephine
Your heart points to the great big blue

The Poor
Where the people's allgiance must go!

Bobby
Tell me where

The Poor
Look at the sky!
That's our inspiration!

Bobby
Look at the sky!
Look at the sky!

The Poor
We can win If we try
We begin when we look at the sky!

Penny
Oh Bobby, what's to become of you? What's to become of us all?!

The Poor
Look at the sky!
Standard of the people!

Bobby
Off in the distance
There's a beautiful horizon

The Poor
It's a banner so wide
Flying proudly with pride
In the sky

Bobby
In the sky

The Poor
In the sky!
