Alone In The Universe

HORTON
I've been guarding this clover
For over a week,
Getting laughed at
For thinking a dust speck can speak.
Well, let them all laugh
I'll try not to mind,
For I have found something
That they'll never find!

There are secrets on a leaf,
In the water, in the air,
Hidden planets, tiny worlds,
All invisible!
Not a person seems to know.
Not a person seems to care.
There is no one who believes a thing I say...

Well, I'm fairly certain
At one time or other,
Great thinkers all feel this way!

I'm alone in the universe.
So alone in the universe.
I've found magic but they don't see it

They all call me a lunatic.
Ok, call me a lunatic.
If I stand on my own, so be it.

'Cause I have wings.
Yes, I can fly
Around the moon
And far beyond the sky
And one day soon
I know there you'll be
One small voice in the universe
One true friend in the universe
Who believes in me...

JOJO HORTON
I'm alone in the universe.
So alone in the universe.
My own planets and stars
Are glowing.
Alone in the universe
No one notices anything.
Not one person is listening.
They don't have any way of knowing.
Nobody knows that
I have wings
I have wings.
Yes, I can fly
I can fly
Around the moon
And far
Beyond the sky Beyond the sky

BOTH
Well someday soon
You will hear my plea

HORTON
One small voice in the universe

JOJO
One true friend in the universe

BOTH
Please believe in me ...

HORTON (softly, to his clover)
Hello...hello?

JOJO (startled)
Hello?

HORTON (startled as well)
Who's there?

JOJO
It's me, Jojo. The Mayor's son.

HORTON
I'm Horton. The Elephant

JOJO
Are you real, or are you a very large think?

HORTON
Oh, I'm real, all right. I would state that in ink.

JOJO
In my thinks, I imagine a lot of strange things
And I go to strange places, as if I had wings!
I love a good think!

HORTON
Well, for me that goes double.

JOJO
Sometimes my thinks are what get me in trouble.

HORTON
When you think, do you dream?

JOJO
In bright colors!

HORTON
Me too. And I go to strange places
Like Solla Sollew!

JOJO
When you think, do you think
You could fly to the stars?

HORTON
Little friend, no one else
Could have thinks such as ours!

(HORTON and JOJO imagine they are flying through the starry universe.)

HORTON JOJO
Yes, I have wings.
I have wings
And I can fly
I can fly ...
Around the moon
And far beyond the sky Beyond the sky ...
You called my name
And you set me free-
One small voice in the universe

JOJO
One true friend in the universe

BOTH
Who believes in me.

HORTON
Goodnight Jojo.

JOJO
Goodnight Horton. See you in Solla Sollew!

(HORTON exits and JOJO goes to sleep. Suddenly,
THE CAT pops up behind JOJO's bed and shakes him awake.)

CAT
Wake up! The scene's over!
There's more to be heard.
There goes our hero. Who enters?

JOJO
The bird!

(GERTRUDE McFUZZ enters, carrying a small guitar.)

GERTRUDE
"Love Song for Horton" Four Hundred and Thirty-Seven.

(GERTRUDE begins to play and sing.)
