The Girl Who Has Everything/The Five-Fifteen lyrics

The Girl Who Has Everything/The Five-Fifteen

Miss Buveau:
Now see edith i need to get my voice like in the fortys

Edith:
For petes sake you cant do that you cant even remeber you name

Kids:
The girl who got everything was the best here breast were large HA!!!!!!!!!!!

Brooks, Sr. (spoken):
Sorry to interrupt your rehearsal ma`am, but about Mister Beale,
surely he`s coming home for the party`

Big Edie (spoken):
Well I should say so! He`s announcing his daughter`s engagement.
Wall Street will have to do without him for a day!

(sung):
Mister Beale thinks making money matters more,
Than a restful family summer by the shore.
But unless some act of God divine,
Derails the New York-Montauk line,
He`s arriving on the five-fifteen.

Brooks, Sr. (spoken):
Then I`ll have a car waiting at the station.

Jackie and Lee (spoken):
Auntie Edith, Auntie Edith!

Big Edie (spoken):
Girls, Girls! Look at you Jackie, lovely! And Lee, a fright! What have you been doing`

Lee (spoken):
Sing for us Aunt Edith!

Big Edie (spoken):
Now girls, make yourselves useful.
Go out to the garden and make some pretty little nosegays to wear at the party.

Jackie and Lee (spoken):
Please! Please! Just one song!

Big Edie (spoken):
Ha ha ha ha! Alright Gould, what`s next on the bill, Indian Love Poem`

Gould (spoken):
No, the mysterious Orient.

Big Edie (spoken):
Hit it!

(sung):
Pretty itty-bitty Geisha!
Delicate and small and sweet!
Kneeling on katami
Making origami,
Hobbling on her poor, bound feet!

All:
Uhh! (grunt)

Big Edie (sung):
Pity itty-bitty Geisha!
(Jackie and Lee (sung at the same time): Ee-oww! Chimmy, chimmy chow chim!)
Hiding all her foolish pride!
(Jackie and Lee (sung at the same time): Coochie, coochie, coo!)
Let your auntie Edith,
Finish her rehearsal,
Take your silly selves outside!

(spoken):
Scoot! Ha ha ha ha ha!
Utter terrors those two!

Gould (spoken):
I just adore children! Especially grown ones.

Brooks, Sr. (spoken):
Ma`am, the caterers arrived, where would you like them to set up`

Big Edie (sung):
Put the chafing dishes on the garden ledge,
Once the gardener has finished with the hedge.
Chill the vichyssoise and heat the veal,
And wish me luck, `cause Mister Beale,
Is arriving on the five-fifteen.

Big Edie (spoken):
What time is it`

Gould (spoken):
Half past eleven.

Big Edie (spoken):
Good Lord!

(sung):
One o`clock!
Set the chairs and the table!
Two o`clock!
Raise the big, white tent!
Three o`clock!
Reginaldo does our hair!

Gould (spoken):
Now that sounds promising!

Big Edie (sung):
Four o`clock!
Hang the Japanese lanterns!
Five o`clock!
Mix the champagne punch!

Jackie and Lee (sung):
Take the inchworms of the peonies!

Gould (sung):
Pink umbrellas for the daiquiris!

Big Edie (sung):
The Ambassador and Rose will tour the grounds.

(spoken):
Like a spread from house and garden!

(sung):
She expounds!

Gould (spoken):
Oh, how nouveau riche!

Big Edie (sung):
Have the piano tuned and moved outdoors,
By cocktail hour, mine, not yours!
And restrict yourself to grenadine!

Jackie and Lee (spoken):
Nyah, Nyah!

Big Edie (sung):
You cannot be sloshed

All (sung):
At five-fifteen!

(phone rings)

Brooks, Sr. (spoken):
Beale residence. Hold please! Lady from the Hamptons Bee.

Big Edie (spoken):
(Gasp) Why hello Margaret! Yes darling, half past five! Ha-hem.
Well everyone is simply at two o`clock going to come from Hyannis.
Well, the press table is going to be awfully crowded,
but if you don`t mind sharing a folding chair with Harper`s Bazaar!
Sing` Me` Heavens no! It`s Edie`s day,
not mine! Although people can be so insistent and I hate to disappoint!
Twist my arm, blackmail me, threaten my very life and who knows,
you might get a verse of something! Yes darling, half-past. Where were we`

All (sung):
One o`clock!

Big Edie (sung):
Stake the droopy hydranges!

All (sung):
Two o`clock!

Big Edie (sung):
Fill the Lotus pond!

All (sung):
Three o`clock!

Big Edie (sung):
Lock the cat up in its room!

Jackie and Lee (sung):
Aw! Poor kitty!

All (sung):
Four o`clock!

Big Edie (spoken):
Glaze the salmon in aspic!

All (sung):
Five o`clock!

Big Edie (sung):
Crack the crab on ice!
With the privet pruned and manicured,
And my daughter`s future well-assured!
Grey Gardens will be decked up in its pride!
Little Edie will be here with Joe in time!
Like a Norman Rockwell family,
Our photo in the Hamptons Bee!

Gould (sung):
The event of 1941!

Jackie and Lee (sung):
Of East, West, South, and Bridgehampton!

Big Edie (sung):
Though perhaps I`ve overspent a bit,
The man who`s gonna pay for it

All (sung):
Is arriving on the five-fifteen!
Who-oo!
