A Wild, Wild Party

EVE (QUEENIE)
God has said:

GOD (MAX)
"Don't eat that apple, child,
It's bad, forbidden fruit.

OSCAR & PHIL
Bad, forbidden fruit.

GOD (MAX)
That's right.

EVE (QUEENIE)
God has said:

GOD (MAX)
"Don't break my laws
Or give me cause
To use my boot."

OSCAR & PHIL
Don't go that route.

GOD (MAX)
That's what I said.

EVE (QUEENIE)
I misunderstood him
Or maybe I forgot
Cause after just one bite:
Ooh!
What a night.
Cool Paradise turned hot!

We were having a wild, wild party
We were loving it loud and fast
We were having a wild, wild party
And hoping the beer would last.
Adam, help me now!

ADAM & EVE (BURRS & QUEENIE)
We were driving it fast and funky
We were dancing and running free
We were having a wild, wild party

EVE (QUEENIE)
And all because of that tree!

THE TREE (EDDIE)
A wild, wild, wild party.

OSCAR
Chapter next!

PHIL
Sodom and Gomorrah
That seedy, greedy den
Got said to Abraham:

GOD (MAX)
"Go find me righteous men!"

OSCAR
Abie went
To find one gent

PHIL
And he could guess
Those folks were less than glad he was sent.

OSCAR
For when the Boss came down

PHIL & OSCAR
They were burning up the town.

PHIL & OSCAR SODOMITES
They were having a wild, wild party Indeed!
They were loving it loud and fast Such speed!
They were having a wild, wild party
And hoping the beer would last.

OSCAR
Hey, what's on tap?

PHIL & OSCAR SODOMITES
They were driving it fast and funky Wa ooh!
They were doin' it to a fault So true!
They were having a wild, wild party

GOD (MAX)
Until that woman turned to salt!

QUEENIE, OSCAR & PHIL
Heaven watched us tearing up the joint
Heaven, ever slowly, got the point

QUEENIE
Moses, coming down from the mount
What's that I hear you say?

PHIL
Holy, Moses, down from the mount
Been workin' a-forty day.

QUEENIE, OSCAR & PHIL
Your people wandered from the Word
Now how did this begin?

MOSES (BURRS)
I was so in shock
They made me drop my rock

ISRAELITES
Well, Moe - what was their sin?

MOSES ISRAELITES
They were having a wild, wild party Baruch haba -
They were dancing and living free Baruch atah -
They were having a wild, wild party

MOSES (Burrs)
And not a soul invited me.

QUEENIE, OSCAR & PHIL
So don't you see
That's the way it was meant to be

BURRS
From chapter one

QUEENIE
To one hundred thirty-three.

QUEENIE, BURRS, OSCAR & PHIL
If in Heaven you don't excel
You can always party down in Hell!

OSCAR & PHIL
Then finally -

ALL
We'll be having a wild, wild party
We'll be loving it loud and fast
We'll be having a wild, wild party
And hoping the beer would last.

We'll be having a wild, wild party
We'll be loving it loud and fast
We'll be having a wild, wild party
And hoping the beer would last.

We'll be driving it fast and funky
We'll be dancing in primordial stew
Such a wonderful wild, wild party
And we're inviting you!

QUEENIE, BURRS, OSCAR & PHIL
And we're inviting you!
