The C Word lyrics

The C Word

Voice:
(from offstage, very eerie)
Toffee, toffee....

Ginger:
Study hall, toff.
Get your homework.

Coco:
Whatcha got today?

Toffee:
Nothin' but math.
What's the whoop?
I mean, who uses math anyway?

Candy:
But i thought you wanted to be
A nuclear whatsits crackerjack.

Toffee:
What does it matter?
Nothing i do
Will ever bring jonny back.
Nothing will bring my jonny back....

Girls:
(variously)
Life is rough,
But enough's enough.
More's in store for you.
You loved jon
But he's come and gone,
And you still are goin' boo-hoo-hoo.
You loved jon,
But you must move on.
You know he'd want you to.

Voice:
(from offstage)
Toffee, toffee...

Toffee:
What was that?

Ginger:
Toffee?

Candy:
What's the matter with you?

Toffee:
Ev'ry now and then
I hear his voice,
Hear my darlin' jon.
Ev'ry now and then
I see his face.
Yeah, he's dead but he ain't gone....

Jake:
Toffee, i know,
We all miss jonny.
But come back to the ground....

Joey:
Gotta cheer up,
He only died....

Josh:
Hey, it's not like he's screwing around...

Candy:
Josh! Honestly!!

Ginger:
What kind of thing is that to say to someone who just drove her boyfriend to suicide?

Coco:
Ginger's right. Jonny's a dead subject.

Candy:
Besides who can think of anything else with the prom just around the corner?

Toffee:
Listen to you all! Someone died, and all you're worrying about is who to take to the stupid old prom!
As if any of that matters!

Candy:
Oh, toffee, you're just upset. You can't mean that.

Jake:
We've gotta keen theme this year.

Joey:
An evening of miracles and molecules...

Coco:
What could be more important than the prom?

Ginger:
And you'll be a shoo-in for prom queen, toffee.

Josh:
You'll get the sympathy vote!

Kids:
(shooting a disgusted look at josh)
Ugh!

Josh:
What?!

Toffee:
Life's a trap
Of the same old crap.
No such thing as new.

Ginger:
The "c" word. She said the "c" word.

Toffee:
Moms and pops,
And senior hops,
And who is dating who-who-who.
Fall to spring,
It's the same old thing --
It's crap the whole year through!

Ginger:
Twice! She said it twice!

Toffee:
It's crap the whole year....

Ginger:
Three times!


(miss strict who has entered behind them and heard the whole discussion, blows her whistle.)


Miss strict:
That will be quite enough out of you, missy!

Ginger:
She used the "c" word, miss strict. The really bad one: rhymes with "map."

Miss strict:
Thank you, ginger.

Toffee:
Snitch!

Miss strict:
Toffee! Child! What sort of insanity is this?!
Perhaps, what you need is a little reminder of what enrico fermi high is all about!
The school motto, children...?!

Boys:
Rules!

Girls:
Regulations!

Miss strict:
And...?

All:
Respect!!
