Christian Charity (Reprise) lyrics
Christian Charity (Reprise)
SHERIFF: It's not about these dumb elections.
DR. PARKER (spoken): I never said it was
SHERIFF: Don't want the cart before the horse.
DR. PARKER (spoken): Of course, nobody does.
SHERIFF: But some of my constituents
Claim he's skulking through their kitchens!
And soon I may have no recourse
But to enforce the law!
BUD: With deadly force!
LORRAINE: So there it is, Doc, spelled out plain.
BUD: So are we clear?
MAGGIE: You'll take no action that could derail this train!
ALL TOWNSFOLK: You should just be grateful
We don't hang him from a tree!
So don't you go testin' our
So ship him out, Doc,
Don't care to where.
BUD: You think that's fair?
ALL TOWNSFOLK: Take the long way home --
ROY: Because he's foulin' the air!
ALL TOWNSFOLK: Doc we need a quarantine,
We want a guarantee!
He can't be allowed to come.
BUD: He'll cause pandemonium!
ALL TOWNSFOLK: So shape up and show us some Christian...
DR. PARKER (spoken): It's going to be hard on Meredith... but I give you my word. Edgar will not attend the revival.
BUD (spoken): You word of honor?
DR. PARKER (spoken): My word of honor.
(BUD and DR. PARKER shake hands. The townsfolk all sigh in relief.)
ALL TOWNSFOLK: Thank God you'll be showin' some
And some dang sense!
