Learn to Do It lyrics

Learn to Do It

VLAD
You were born in a palace by the sea

DMITRY
A palace by the sea

ANYA
Could it be?

VLAD
Yes, it’s so
You rode horseback when you were only three

ANYA
Horseback riding? Me?

DMITRY
Horse’s name

VLAD
Romeo
You threw tantrums and terrorized the cook
Ha!
How the palace shook

DMITRY
Charming child

VLAD
Wrote the book
But you’d behave when your father gave that look

DMITRY
Imagine how it was
Your long forgotten past

DMITRY & VLAD
We’ve lots and lots to teach you and the time is going fast

VLAD (spoken)
Let’s see you walk
Head up
Regal bearing
(sung)
Now shoulders back and stand up tall
And do not walk, but try to float

ANYA
I feel a little foolish
Am I floating?

DMITRY
Like a sinking boat

VLAD
You give a bow

ANYA
What happens now?

VLAD
Your hand receives a kiss

DMITRY & VLAD
Most of all remember this

VLAD
If I can learn to do it
You can learn to do it

DMITRY
Something in you knows it

DMITRY & VLAD
There’s nothing to it

VLAD
Follow in my footsteps
Shoe by shoe

DMITRY & VLAD
You can learn to do it too

DMITRY
Now elbows in and sit up straight
And do not slurp the stroganoff

ANYA
I never cared for stroganoff

VLAD
She said that like a Romanov

DMITRY
The Samovar

VLAD
The caviar

ANYA
Dessert and then goodnight?

DMITRY & VLAD
Not until you get this right

VLAD
If I can learn to do it

DMITRY
If he can learn to do it

VLAD
You can learn to do it

DMITRY
You can learn to do it

VLAD
Pull yourself together

DMITRY & VLAD
And you’ll pull through it

VLAD
Tell yourself it’s easy

DMITRY & VLAD
And it’s true
You can learn to do it too

VLAD (spoken)
Who is your great grandmother?

ANYA (spoken)
Queen Victoria.

VLAD (spoken)
Great-great grandmother?

ANYA (spoken)
Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld.

VLAD (spoken)
Your best friend is?

ANYA (spoken)
My little brother Alexei.

DMITRY (spoken)
Wrong. Your best friend is -

ANYA (spoken)
I know who my best friend is.

DMITRY (spoken)
What a temper.

ANYA (spoken)
I don’t like being contradicted.

DMITRY (spoken)
That makes two of us.

VLAD (spoken)
Continuing on.

ANYA
I’ve had it
And I hate you both
I’m sorry that we ever met
I’m hungry
And I’m frightened
And I’m only human
Don’t forget
I don’t remember anything
Get out and let me be

VLAD
Anya, darling
Look at me
We're all frightened
Well, slightly, now and then
Shall we start again?
Take a breath
Count to ten
You have courage
And strength you barely know
So blow that little nose
And dry those pretty eyes
A princess like Your Majesty can do this if she tries
Ready?

DMITRY
Set

ANYA
Go

VLAD
Now here’s your great-aunt Olga

DMITRY
How she frolicked
On the Volga

ANYA
Oh!

VLAD
Your distant cousin Vanya
Loved his vodka

DMITRY
Got it, Anya?

ANYA
No.

VLAD
The Duke of Oldenburg was short

DMITRY
Louise of Baden

ANYA
Had a

DMITRY
Wart

VLAD
Count Sergei

DMITRY
Wore a feathered hat

VLAD
I hear he’s gotten very fat

ANYA
And I recall his yellow cat

VLAD
I don’t believe we told her that

DMITRY & VLAD
If you can learn to do it

ANYA
If I can learn to do it

DMITRY & VLAD
He can learn to do it

ANYA
You can learn to do it

DMITRY & VLAD
Pull yourself together

ALL
And we’ll pull through it

VLAD
Tell yourself it’s easy

ALL
And it’s true

DMITRY & VLAD
You can learn to do it

ANYA
Nothing to it

ALL
You can learn to do it

ANYA
The caviar
The stroganoff
The Samovar
The feathered hat
The cousin drank
The Duke was short
And here a wart
And there a cat
The horse’s name was Romeo
So tell me something new

VLAD & DMITRY
Ha!

ANYA
Ah!

ALL
You can learn to do it too
