Cancelling the Bar Mitzvah lyrics

Cancelling the Bar Mitzvah

TRINA
Jason, if you want a Bar Mitzvah
God knows, you can have a Bar Mitzvah
But I have to know
And I have to know now
Just what it is you want
I've addressed the invitations
Here's your chance to give me Hell
If you think it's bust
Then it's probably just
As well

JASON
Can't we wait 'til Whizzer gets better?
Can't we wait 'til he's out?
That's what bar mitzvahs should be all about!
Good friends close at hand -
Don't you understand?

MENDEL
We can't be sure when
He'll get better
When, or if
He'll ever get better
But the hall is booked
And the band's been retained
So, Jason, please
What we'll do is your decision
There's no right and there's no wrong
Just say yes or no
And we'll promise to go along

JASON
Finally, now, it's all my decision
Like it's my bar mitzvah
Just like nothing happened
Hell, let's have a party
Just like nothing happened
Why don't you make this dumb decision yourselves
Okay?
Why don't you make this dumb decision yourselves?

MENDEL
We'll have the bar mitzvah?

JASON
No

TRINA
So, we'll cancel the bar mitzvah?

JASON
No!

TRINA AND MENDEL
We'll wait until you've made a decision

TRINA
Now what do we do?

MENDEL
Why don't we tell him
That we don't have the answers?
And that life can be grim
Life's not all about him
And things rarely go according to plan
Tell him things happen
For no damned good reason
That his lack of control
Kills what's best in your soul
And this is the start
To his becoming a man

TRINA
Holding to the ground
As the ground keeps shifting

MENDEL
Trying to keep sane
As the rules keep changing

TRINA AND MENDEL
Keeping up my head
As my heart falls out of sight
Everything will be alright
