Look At Him

Look At Him lyrics

Look At Him

DUCKLINGS:
look at him!

IDA:
now then, children,
let's not make a fuss

DUCKLINGS:
look at him!

DRAKE:
are you sure he's really one of us?

IDA:
family likeness isn't strong,
still you won't poke fun.
all of you must get along--
he's a special son.

(IDA, spoken:)
Come along, all of you now, follow me.
But stay close to me at all times or you may get trodden on...and beware of the cat!

DUCKLINGS:
look at him--
legs are bandy
and the knees are knocked.
look at him

BILLY:
dad was obviously egg-shell-shocked

DUCKLINGS:
bet the neighbors scream and howl
when they see our brood.
he's the foulest waterfowl

UGLY:
why are you so rude?

DOWNY (spoken):
Ooh, touchy!

MAUREEN:
look at him!
come on, Ida, tell me what went wrong?
look at him!
did you leave him in the egg too long?

IDA:
I admire you for your pluck
srictly "entre nous"
he may be no pin-up duck...
neither, dear, are you!

UGLY:
look at you, look at me
what's it matter?

DOWNY (spoken):
isn't it obvious?

UGLY:
why do I make you all laugh and scoff?

BEAKY (spoken):
have you seen your reflection?

UGLY:
why don't we play with the fishes?

DUCKLINGS:
because you'd scare them off!
(laughter)

DRAKE:
look at him
you admit he is a bit extreme?

DUCKILNGS:
now our parents will start quibbling

IDA:
look at him
just a variation on a theme

DUCKLINGS:
he's a truly ugly sibling

IDA:
I don't want to see my son
left out on a limb
why is it that everyone has to jeer?

DRAKE:
there's your answer, dear...

ALL:
look at him!

HENRIETTA:
peck, peck, peck, peck!
I hate to be picky
but the duck--peck, peck--
looks a little bit dicky!
look at him--sqwuak!--
did you ever see a pig with wings?
look at him--sqwuak!--don't genetics do the strangest things?
though the thought may not appeal
break the ties that bind
if you gave the cat a meal...
nobody would mind

TURKEY:
look at him
he's an ugly one, there is no doubt
look at him
does he have his giblets inside-out?
what else would explain his looks
being quite so rough?
how on earth would gourmet cooks
know which end to stuff?!

ALL:
look at him, look at us
see the difference
look at him, look at us
where's the match?

TURKEY & HENRIETTA:
sometimes we find it is kinder
if some eggs never hatch

CAT:
look at him!
still a duckling
but there's so much more...
look at him!
finest cat food that I ever saw
better still he won't be missed--
they think he's a flop
maybe they'll let me assist
giving him the chop!

TURKEY (spoken):
now in a moment you will be presented to Her Grace...she is looked up to by both men and animal.

IDA (spoken):
Now, don't turn your toes in, just bow your head politely and say "Quack"

DUCKLINGS (individually)
quack! quack! quack! quack!

UGLY:
Honk!

DUCKLINGS:
look at him
now he's ruining our photograph

IDA:
just imagine how he's feeling

GRACE:
look at him
mother nature must have had a laugh

IDA:
in a way he's quite appealing

DRAKE/TURKEY/MAUREEN/HENRIETTA:
look at him

DUCKLINGS:
look at him
na na na na na na na na na

GRACE:
a relation one should sever

DRAKE/TURKEY/MAUREEN/HENRIETTA:
a relation one should sever
look at him!

DUCKLINGS:
look at him
na na na na na na na na na

ALL:
he is gawky in whatever he does, oh
he really is an ugly oiseau

IDA:
he's my son and I love him
do you see what you've done?
you're to blame
this duckyard would be so boring
if we all looked the same

DRAKE/TURKEY/MAUREEN/HENRIETTA:
look at him

DUCKLINGS:
look at him

DRAKE/TURKEY/MAUREEN/HENRIETTA:
and be thankful that he's not your kid

DUCKLINGS:
but we've got him as a brother

DRAKE/TURKEY/MAUREEN/HENRIETTA:
look at him

DUCKILINGS:
look at him

DRAKE/TURKEY/MAUREEN/HENRIETTA:
bound to go the way the dodo did

DUCKLINGS:
and he's worse than any other

DRAKE/TURKEY/MAUREEN/HENRIETTA:
bodywork designed to shock

DUCKLINGS:
la la la la la

DRAKE/TURKEY/MAUREEN/HENRIETTA:
prospects pretty dim

DUCKLINGS:
la la la la la

DRAKE/TURKEY/MAUREEN/HENRIETTA:
he should form a solo flock

CAT:
look at him little thing
his neck just made to wring

ALL:
look at him,
look at me,
look at you,
you'll agree
anywhere you look will be less grim
than a glimpse of this wimp of wimps...
look at him!!!
