What's Next lyrics

What's Next

WILL

First things first:
We're in this prison cell
Have to find a way
To break out
Find another place
To stake out

Look around
Be sure we aren't seen
Slowly check the door
Before we're spotted
Were we spotted?

I know
You've been
A secret double agent
But we can turn the page
Into another kind of tale

Let's go
The door
Is just our first opponent
So step out of your
State of shock
We only need to
Pick this lock...

EDWARD

(reveals Key to the City)
No need!

WILL

"What's next" is all
Anyone needs to begin
"What's next"
Has been a friend to you
What's next to do?
One word and then
Suddenly one more again
Just like a pen
Writing a perfect tale

Out the door
And pray the coast is clear

DR. BENETT

Edward?

WILL

Noses to the ground
Before we're spotted

EDWARD

We were spotted!

WILL

So, now we face
The ultimate decision Relinquish our control
As we surrender up the fight
Or else we say
Hello to the collision
Just do our job and do it well

EDWARD

Or better yet
Let's run like hell!

WILL

"What's next" is all
Anyone needs to begin
"What's next"
Has been a friend to you
What's next to do?
One word and then
Suddenly one more again
Just like a pen
Writing a perfect tale

EDWARD

Will, look! My old Chevy!

WILL

Edward Bloom
How did you swim through
Danger in the world
What was in the heart that
Beats inside you?
Were you simply wetter than
The ordinary average man
Or was it just your fins and
Scales to guid you to:

What's next

EDWARD

We start the car

WILL

What's next?

EDWARD

We hit the road!

WILL

What's next?

EDWARD

We find the river

WILL

What's next? What's next?

EDWARD

I don't, I don't know...

WILL

And who do we see
At the river
To greet you
Everyone there at the river
To meet you
Everyone you ever knew
Ever spoke of
Waiting for you to arrive

Now, can you see Karl
By the tree in the distance
Amos arrives with his usual flair
Zacky and Don
Gathered 'round, cherring on
Yes, even the Witch is there
She is there!

WILL

"What's next" is all
Anyone needs to begin
"What's next"
Has been a friend to you
What's next to do?

EDWARD'S FRIENDS

Edward Bloom
We've come to say goodbye
Come to tell you why
We've always loved you
Yes, we loved you

WILL

Only one dad
Only inspiring one son
Edward, you're done
Writing your perfect tale
Telling the perfect tale

EVERYONE but EDWARD

It was a perfect tale
