Around Here lyrics

Around Here

VIOLET: You gotta know what to do
You gotta do it in a hurry

Gotta hustle
Gotta bustle
Gotta scoot
You gotta scurry

'Cause we got no time to fool around around here.

WOMEN: Around here

VIOLET: You gotta get it right on the first try, honey,
Cause each mistake means they're losing lots of money,
VIOLET & WOMEN: And we got no time to waste a dime around here.

VIOLET: Here's your mimeograph
And the carbon paper
There's your intercom
There's the phone and there's the stapler

Got your shredder,
Got your letters,
Gonna type,
You gotta write.
Is that clear?
VIOLET & WOMEN: Is that clear?

VIOLET: You got your three-hole punch
and at noon take lunch
Keep it runnin'
keep it comin'
Gotta pump,
You gotta hump.
'Cause we got no time to fool around here.

{spoken} Follow me!

ENSEMBLE: You gotta know what to do
You gotta do it in a hurry

Gotta hustle
Gotta bustle
Gotta scoot
You gotta scurry

'Cause we got no time to fool around
Around here
Around here

WOMEN: Punch in when you enter

MEN: Punch out when you leave

WOMEN: Do exactly as you're told

MEN: No excuses please.

MEN & WOMEN: No we don't play, or make mistakes around-

ROZ: {spoken} Violet! Oh, Violet!

VIOLET: {spoken} Judy! This is Roz Keith, Mr. Hart's administrative assistant.

ROZ: {spoken}
Violet, I've been meaning to talk to you about Mr. Hart's rules regarding office decor.
No personal items on the desk. We mustn't look cluttered or sloppy.
An office that looks efficient...

VIOLET & ROZ: {spoken} ...is efficient.

ROZ: {spoken} I've typed up this memo, and you can post it on the bulletin board.

VIOLET: {spoken} Thanks, Roz! I know just where to stick it.
Dear old Roz is Mr. Hart's administrative eyes, ears, nose, and throat.
If you ever want to gossip in the ladies room, check under the stalls for feet first.

{singing} You gotta know who to trust,
Better know it in a hurry,
No time for such a thing as your personal worries,
Gotta grow,
You gotta show,
Better keep it in tow around here.

{spoken} Let's recap.

ENSEMBLE: Around here!

JUDY: Know who to trust, know it in a hurry.

ENSEMBLE: Around here!

JUDY: No time for any personal worry.

ENSEMBLE: Around here!

VIOLET: No laughing, no jokes, and mind the dress code.

ENSEMBLE: Is that clear? Around here!

MEN: No jacks!

WOMEN: No snacks!

MEN & WOMEN: No clutter on the desk! Around here! No breaks, or personal effects.

VIOLET: It's all about the job and getting it done around here.

ENSEMBLE: All about the job, and getting done around here.

You gotta know what to do,
You gotta do it in a hurry,
Gotta hustle,
Gotta bustle,
Gotta scoot,
You gotta scurry,
Cause we got no time to fool around around here. Around here!

Do whatcha' gotta do
No time to dily-dally
No time to bend the rules
'Cause there are ones that keep a tally.

Yeah, we got no time to fool around
Around here (Around here!)

WOMEN: Got no time at all

MEN: No time at all

WOMEN & MEN: No time at all to fool around around here!

VIOLET: {spoken} Get it?

JUDY: {spoken} Got it!

VIOLET: {spoken} Good!
