Be Anything But a Girl

Be Anything But a Girl lyrics

Be Anything But a Girl

GRANDPA
WHEN I WAS A BOY, I MUST CONFESS
I SECRETLY ENVIED GIRLS.
THEY WERE TREATED WITH RESPECT AND LOVE
BY A VELVET HAND AND VELVET GLOVE
WITH NEVER A SINGLE CHORE
WHILE BOYS HAD TO WORK,
AND THEN WORK SOME MORE

AGNES
WELL, I’M JUST THE OTHER WAY ROUND,
I GUESS
I’VE ALWAYS ENVIED BOYS!
I WISH I COULD HAVE THEIR CAREFREE WAYS
AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS
BOYS CAN LEARN, AND GROW, AND FIND THEIR PLACE
AND FEEL LIKE A PART OF THE HUMAN RACE!

GRANDPA
IF REINCARNATION PERRMITTED YOUR LIFE
TO UNFURL AGAIN
I HOPE YOU DON’T HAVE TO COME BACK,
JUST TO BE A GIRL AGAIN

I hope so too, Grandpa.

GRANDPA
WOULD YOU LIKE TO BUZZIN’
BUZZIN’ THROUGH THE HOURS
STEALIN’ ALL THE HONEY
FROM THE WILLIN’ FLOWERS
BE A FLY, BE A BEE
BE A HUMMIN’BIRD OUT TO SPREE
BE ANYTHING AT ALL

AGNES
BUT A GIRL

GRANDPA
WOULD YOU LIKE TO KEEP MOVIN’
MOVIN’ ALL AROUND
LATCHIN’ ON TO PLEASURES
ANYWHERE IT’S FOUND
BE A BIRD IN A TREE
OR A LITTLE OLD FISH IN THE SEA
BE ANYTHING AT ALL

AGNES & TOOTIE
BUT A GIRL

GRANDPA
DON’T BE BRASSY
DON’T BE SASSY
DON’T BE LATE FOR SCHOOL
DON’T BE LAZY
DON’T BE CRAZY
KEEP THE GOLDEN RULE
IF THERE IS SOMETHIN’ THAT CHYA
REALLY WANNA DO
HERE’S WHAT I SUGGEST TO YOU

MR. SMITH
[Offstage.]
Can’t a man soak in silence!

GRANDPA
DON’T BE ROWDY
DON’T BE DOWDY
DON’T GET INTO SUN
DON’T BE SCRAPPY
DON’T BE HAPPY
DON’T HAVE ANY FUN
NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER
UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES
WHATSOEVER
SHOULD A GIRL
EVER HAVE ANY FUN

AGNES & TOOTIE
None?

GRANDPA
NO!

ALL THREE
WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO STEPPIN’?
STEPPIN’ HIGH AND WIDE
WITH A FOUR LEAF CLOVER
ALWAYS BY YOUR SIDE

GRANDPA
BE A HIM!
BE A HE!

AGNES & TOOTIE
BUT FOR PITY’S SAKE
DON’T BE SHE!

GRANDPA
BE ANYTHING

GRANDPA & AGNES
BE ANYTHING

ALL THREE
BE ANYTHING AT ALL

GRANDPA
BUT A GIRL

GRANDPA & AGNES
BUT A GIRL

ALL THREE
BUT A GIRL!
