My Favorite Moment of the Bee 3/Second lyrics

My Favorite Moment of the Bee 3/Second

MR. PANCH (spoken)
Will the final two spellers please step forward.

MS. PERETTI
Oh boy
(spoken) and Oh girl
(sung) Only two remain
I feel joy
But I also feel pain
Because I know what?s coming
Joy never comes for free

In a moment he or she
Will enter spelling history
Feeling triumph and glee
In this moment of perfect syzygy
I hear triumphant sounds of timpani
It?s my favorite moment of the bee

MR. PANCH (spoken)
Mr. Barfee, "Corzya."

WILLIAM (spoken)
Corzya.

MR. PANCH (spoken)
"Ilspile."

Olive (spoken)
Ilspile?

MR. PANCH (spoken)
Zoonosis. Chromatophore. Astrobleme.

Olive
I'm loving every minute

WILLIAM (spoken)
Astrobleme.

Olive
Who knew I had this thirst?

WILLIAM (spoken)
A-S-T

Olive
To think that I might win it
Is astounding news
And I'm about to burst

WILLIAM (spoken)
R-O astro

Olive
How wonderful it feels
To stand so close to first

WILLIAM (spoken)
B-L-E

OLIVE
I'll make it happen
And not as previously reckoned
Cause I will not come in second!
I hate to come in second
Yes I do
Yes I do
Yes I do
Yes I do
I will not come in second.

WILLIAM (spoken)
M-E Astrobleme

MR. PANCH (spoken)
That is correct. Miss Ostrovsky
Spell "Elanguescence"

WILLIAM
Am I a Red Socks or a Yankee?
Who will come in second?
(spoken) People are scared of me
And no one really likes me
(sung) I won't come in second
Hey Olive, don't think I'm distracted
By your eyes and your smile and
Your hairdo
Oh the things I do not dare do;
My fears are odious and fecund.
You will not outrank me
I won't wave my hankie

Second
I won't come in second
I won't come in
Second
I won't come in
Second

Olive (overlapping William)
I won't come in second
I won't come in second
I won't come in second
Second

(spoken) Elanguescence E-L-A-N-G-U-E-S-S-E-N-C-E?
Elanguescence?

OLIVE
But we are equals Ma where neither condescends

WILLIAM
My fears are odious and fecund

OLIVE

WILLIAM (overlapping Olive)
And should i throw the bee?

If foe ever ever ever
To always be stuck in second
Will I come in second
