13/Becoming A Man

Evan:
I’m evan goldman, i live at 224 west 92nd street, in the heart of manhattan. And my life just went to hell.

Picture me just another cool kid in nyc, near the park and the met
Life is sweet, yankees in the bronx, pretzels on the street, just how good can it get?
Who’d have guess dad would meet a stewardess?
Mom’s depressed and her lawyers are mean
Now i’m stressed, life is a disaster
And i’m cracking from the strain, going totally insane
And i’m just about to turn
Just about to turn
Just about to turn

All:
Thirteen!

Evan:
Everything switches

All:
Thirteen!

Evan:
Everything turns around

All:
Thirteen!

Evan:
End up in stitches

All:
Thirteen!

Evan:
Find a way underground

All:
Thirteen!

Evan:
Can i get through it?

All:
Thirteen!

Evan:
Life has changed over night

All:
Thirteen!

Evan:
How do i do it?

All:
Thirteen!

Evan:
Nothing is going right

All:
The best and the worst
And the most and the least
And the crazy and the scary
And i’m standing on the edge!

Evan:
Twelve years old, everything that used to be as good as gold starts to crumble and crack

Evan with others:
Pressure mounts, once it was a joke, now it really counts and there’s no going back

All:
Life goes wrong

Boy:
Suddenly they’re yelling cause your hair’s too long

Girl:
Or your room isn’t clean

All:
Roll along

Evan:
Every conversation is another lost cause or a list of my flaws
And i’m just about to turn

All:
Just about to turn
God, i’m going to turn
Thirteen!

Richie:
I want a dirt bike

All:
Thirteen!

Lucy:
I want to kill my mom

All:
Thirteen!

Eddie:
I want a mustache!

All:
Thirteen!

Cassie:
I want a wonder bra

Group 1:
Thirteen!

Group 2:
When do i get it?

Group 1:
Thirteen!

Group 2:
All of the grown-up stuff’

Group 1:
Thirteen!

Group 2:
How will i make it?

Group 1:
Thirteen!

Group 2:
When am i old enough?

All:
Why is the world feeling totally stranger?
Why are my friends acting totally weird?
Why do i feel like my life is in danger?
Why do i feel like my brain disappeared?

Molly:
How can i get through a year of spanish?

Simon:
How can i not look dumb in track?

Eric:
How can i gain 20 pounds by friday?

Malcolm:
How can i make my voice not crack?

All:
I wanna fly, wanna run, wanna drive
Wanna get rich, wanna get drunk, wanna get out
Wanna get my braces off
Wanna get my nose pierced
Wanna grow my hair long
But all i keep hearing is

No, you’re not ready!
No, it’s not time yet!
No, it’s not right now!
Wait until you’re older!

No, you’re not ready!
No, it’s not time yet!
No, it’s not right now!
Wait until you’re older!

No, you’re not ready!
No, it’s not time yet!
No, it’s not right now!
Wait until you’re older!

Homework
Laundry
Dishes
Courses
Just settle down and hold your horses!

(dance break)

Evan:
In the middle of this city
In the middle of this street
There’s a sound of something crumbling,
Rumbling underneath my feet

In the middle of the sidewalk
Outside p.s. 84,
I hear a roar
I can’t ignore

I hear evan it’s not your fault
I hear evan can’t you see
I hear evan do you want to go with mom or stay with me?

I hear kiddo, i’m not angry
I hear buddy, you know best
And there’s the rumbling getting louder

But there’s one day in october
Where the pieces all will fit
When they have to be together
And pretend they didn’t quit

I’ve got one day in october
And i know it’s got to be
The perfect party

I’m becoming a man
I don’t know what a man really means
The rule book grows, but no one knows
What all the rules allow

I’m becoming a man
No one tells all the scared in-betweens
Just how we should be strong, be good
With so much pressure now

One day it gets better
One day it makes sense
One day i’ll stop talking in the friggin future tense
One day in october
It’ll all be great
And i can’t wait
I can’t wait
I can’t wait

Others:
I can’t wait to come to your party
I can’t wait to come to your party
I can’t wait to come to your party
I can’t wait to come to your party
Party!
I can’t wait
I can’t wait
Can’t wait
Can’t wait
Can’t wait
Can’t wait
Can’t wait
Cant wait for thirteen!

Group 2:
Something is coming

Group 1:
Thirteen!

Group 2:
Something is going up

Group 1:
Thirteen!

Group 2:
Something is humming

Group 1:
Thirteen!

Group 2:
Somebody’s growing up!

All:
Thirteen!

Cassie:
Hey, yeahhh!

Eddie:
No, no, no, no, no, no

Malcolm:
Hey, yeah, yeah, hey, yeah

Charlotte:
Yeah, yeah, yeah

All:
The best and the worst
And the most and the least
And the crazy and the scary
And we’re just about to turn
Thirteen!
