Just So

STORYTELLER
(Spoken) Before the High and Far-Off Times,
O My Best Beloved, long before the Rhino has baggy skin,
or the Leopard had spots, or the Kangaroo had bounce, or the Elephant had a trunk,
came the Time of the Very Beginnings
and that was in the days when the Eldest Magician was getting things ready...
First he got the
Earth ready
then he got the Sea ready
and then he told all the animals that they could come out and play...
ANIMALS
Aah-ah
ELDEST MAGICIAN
(Spoken) The Eldest Magician was very pleased with his Creations...
...until he realised that they all looked alike. And the animals said...
ANIMALS
(Spoken) O Eldest Magician, what shall we play at for we all look the same?
ELDEST MAGICIAN
(Spoken) And he said...I will tell you
(Singing) There?s skin or fur or feathers
I leave the choice to you
Feet, Claws or Paws Or Trotters
All fours or up on two
This shade of brown i find there?s nothing duller
Every colour should be worth a try
A theme needs variation
Let your imagination fly

Just so you all know who?s who
Just so you have a different job to do
Just so you can diversify
Filling the land and sea and sky
Making you easy to identify

ANIMALS
Just so we know who we are meant to be
Just so i can tell him from me

ELDEST MAGICIAN
If there?s a niche that you can fill
In a fantastic way you will
Until at last you know
You?ve done all of your growing head to toe
ANIMALS
Becoming Just So
Becoming Just so
As birds and beasts and fishes
This comes as quite a shock
Unless we find an image
We?ll be the laughing stock
The situation is too much to stand
If choice is limited to just one brand
A theme needs variation and some imagination too
Just so we all know who?s who
Just so we have a different job to do
Just so we can diversify
Filling the land and sea and sky
Making us easy to identify
Just so we know who we are meant to be
Just so i can tell him from me
If there?s a niche that we can fill
In a fantastic way we will
Until at last we know
We?ve done all of our growing head to toe

If by design we have a weakness
Clearly it?s concerning our uniqueness

ELDEST MAGICIAN
Just so
You all know who?s who
So i can tell him from you
If there?s a niche that you can fill
In a fantastic way you will
Until at last you know
You?ve done all of your growing head to toe
You?ve done all of your growing head to toe
Becoming Just So

ANIMALS (UNDERNEATH)
Just so we know who we are meant to be
Just so i can tell him from me
If there?s a niche that we can fill
In a fantastic way we will
Until at last we know
We?ve done all of our growing head to toe
We?ve done all of our growing head to toe
Becoming Just So
