What Could Be Better lyrics

What Could Be Better

LIZZIE
He'll maybe have my smile
And your hair
Who tell 'till the baby comes?

He'll maybe have my style
And your flair
And play fabulous drums

Just think:
Inside me our genes have found their niche
They link, and out'll come one tap dancing kid
With perfect pitch

What could be better than your own little clone
Who'll reproduce all your talents
Plus a hint of my own

Consider:
This kid could be a one man band if we let her

DANNY
Her?

LIZZIE
Your sense of key and my great vibrato
Your melody and my obligato
That's what we've got, oh,
What could be better than that?

Right, Danny? Danny? DANNY!

DANNY
I'm thinking...
I'm picturing my lips and your eyes

LIZZIE
For a boy that's a perfect pair

DANNY
I'm picturing my hips and your thights

LIZZIE
That is very unfair

DANNY
No, no, I know
No one can predict what bird we'll hatch
But we're such genetic gems
That God can mix and match

What could be better than if our little spawn
Got all his brains from his dad
And from his mom got his brawn?
Imagine what one tiny mix-up could net her

LIZZIE
Him

DANNY
Your button nose and my bushy eye-brown

BOTH
You for the low brow, me for the high brow
Your brow and my brow, what could be better than that?

DANNY
Hey, that's a good sound. Do it again!

BOTH
La, la, la, la...

DANNY
Uh, Liz... How come?

LIZZIE
I was careful, I swear it! I never forgot it! I don't know how it happened!

DANNY
Maybe it's just that no barrier on earth can stand up against the vigorous lashing army of my sperm!

LIZZIE
That mus be it...

Picture a flailing spermatozoan
Not even knowing where he is going
What's that ahead? A diaphragm! Screw it!
He knows he's dead. My god, he slips through it!

Suddenly he's alone in the river
Now he muyst seize the chance to deliver
Rounding the bend, the egg starts to glimmer
Is this the end for our little swimmer?

Catching the tide, he sails towards the mystery
Set to collide and change all of history!

BOTH
What could be better than a family extension?
A genetic duet,
A little two part invention

LIZZIE
I say: Consider what we'll have in hand when we get her

DANNY
Him!

LIZZIE
So?

DANNY
Yes!

LIZZIE
YES!!!

BOTH
We're going to have a baby!

LIZZIE
And not get married

DANNY
Now, hold on...

LIZZIE
Your sense of mission, my sense of duty
Your disposition my inner beauty

DANNY
Your intuition, my sense of timing

LIZZIE
Your composition, my crazy rhyming

BOTH
Matching of taste that's really uncanny

LIZZIE
My little waist

DANNY
My little fanny

BOTH
Lizzie and Danny, what could be better than that?
