Weekly Volcano Press lyrics

Weekly Volcano Press

Jo:
I came to New York on a dream
I knew it might take me a while
But all I've been hearing since I arrived
Is "Leave it right there on the pile"

So today I woke up
And decided it's time
Time to achieve
Time to thrive
Time to climb

Professor Bhaer[Spoken]:
Miss. March, tell us what happened

Jo:
Sometimes when you dream
Your dream is just a guess
Sometimes when you work really hard
You don't know
If you'll ever find success

So I grabbed a story to sell
And got ready to raise hell
Then I marched out the door
And headed right for
The Weekly Volcano Press

Professor Bhaer[Spoken]:
Henry Dashwood - now he's a man of taste

Jo:
Dashwod was a fiend
He sneered at my distress
Tossed my story high on a stack
But I was determined I would progress

I said "Sir, I'll wait while you read"
But, alas, he disagreed
So I jumped on a chair
And read it right there at
The Weekly Volcano Press

Professor Bhaer[Spoken]:
You did what?!

Jo (As Clarissa)[Spoken]:
Keep away from me you wretch!

Jo (As Braxton)[Spoken]:
I cannot keep away
Your beauty draws me
Your passion ignites me!

Professor Bhaer[Spoken]:
Oh it's the one with all
the horror in it
The blood bath.

Jo[Spoken]:
That's the one
But I took to heart what you said
And I embellished
I made it better

Braxton (With Voiceover Jo):
I've got to have you

Clarissa (With Voiceover Jo):
I defy you!

Braxton:
I will take you

Clarissa:
Let my by you!
Let go Let go
Let go Let go Let go

Jo[Spoken]:
Rodrigo appears in magnificent splendor!

Rodrigo[Spoken]:
Unhand that women, villain!

Clarissa/Braxton[Spoken]:
Who are you!?

Rodrigo:
I am your destiny
Your bitterest foe
I've come to avenge your plights
Of ten years ago

Braxton:
Ahhh

Rodrigo[Spoken]:
Run to the forest
Run

Clarissa[Spoken]:
I can?t!
The forest is dangerous
My sister went in there and never returned

Rodrigo[Spoken]:
You must risk it
You must take the dark path
Your fate awaits you there

Braxton[Spoken]:
She will never escape me

Rodrigo[Spoken]:
Hurry!

Braxton[Spoken]:
En Garde!

Rodrigo[Spoken]:
Go!
No!

Clarissa:
Ahhh!

Jo:
Dashwood was aghast
But I could not care less
Words I spoke ignited the air
I felt like a publishing lioness
That?s when Dashwood started to shout
And I thought he?d throw me out
But then I persevered and a forest appeared
At the weekly volcano press

[Spoken]
The forest is dark and scary
Clarissa enters, trembling
Fearful of what fate awaits her
She comes to a fork in the road
And stops

Clarissa[Spoken]:
Which way do I go?

Jo[Spoken]:
A Hag appears

Hag:
I can help you choose
But you must make a sacrifice
Give me something dear
Those combs are nice

Clarissa:
Without these combs
What will I be?

Hag:
Perhaps a hag as dull as me

Clarissa:
I can?t

Hag:
You?ll never know your destiny
Unless you give up vanity
Clarissa:
I?ve got to know
Please show me where to go

Hag:
Your fate awaits you
There!

Jo[Spoken]:
The path is perioulous
She avoids swamps
She looses her footing
Her shoes tumble off
The sleeve of her dress gets caught
On a twisted limb
She comes to wild rapids
And can go no further

Clarissa[Spoken]:
How shall I get across?!

Jo[Spoken]:
A troll appears

Troll:
If you want to cross
You must pay me
I?ve the only boat that can get you there alive
I see you wear a necklace
That holds a pretty jewel
My price to get across
Is what you?re wearing while your neck
Oh how its glitter makes me drool

Clarissa:
I?ve nothing left but this
My prospects are so bleak

Troll:
You?ll never know what wisdom is
Until you give up all your riches

Clarissa:
Here ? It?s yours
Now show me distant shores

Troll:
I?ll take you to your fate

Jo:
Sometimes when you dream
Your dreams come true
In extraordinary ways
Suddenly a day can be so amazing
And sometimes when you yearn
You burn the air
And someone else feels the flame
You always knew was there

Knight[Spoken]:
Stop, please!

Clarissa[Spoken]:
I cannot stop

Knight[Spoken]:
Can you not give a tired old
Knight some assistance?

Clarissa[Spoken]:
I have nothing left to give!

Knight[Spoken]:
Give me your time

Clarissa[Spoken]:
My fate awaits me

Knight[Spoken]:
Can you not care for me?
It?s been years since
I felt the touch of another hand

Clarissa[Spoken]:
Then take mine
And take my shawl
Ragged as it is

Knight[Spoken]:
You have now completed your journey
My sword is yours
It will protect you against your enemies
You may now return to the moors
Your fate is in your hands

Jo[Spoken]:
And clarissa raced from the forest
Raced to the moors where she called
?I have returned Braxton
I will free the moors of your tyranny
Fight me!?

Braxton[Spoken]:
I?d always knew you?d come back to me
They always do

Clarissa:
Ahhh!

Jo[Spoken]:
Clarissa thrusts
She parries, she backs up Braxton
And pins him against a tree
She leaps up onto a craggy rock
Her sword swishing and swooshing
Never had she been more determined
She is on fire!
Pity she hadn?t taken dueling lessons

Out of no where, who should return
But the long forgotten
Rodrigo!

Rodrigo[Spoken]:
This is your end villain
I?ve waited a life time to destroy you

Braxton[Spoken]:
Who are you?

Rodrigo[Spoken]:
I am your worst nightmare Braxton

Beth as Rodrigo[Spoken]:
I am -Her sister!

Clarissa/Rodrigo:
Ahh!

Braxton:
Whaaaaa

Jo:
And then Dashwood got on his knees
Crying ?Sell this to me please!?

Professor Bhaer[Spoken]:
Miss. March!

Jo[Spoken]:
Then he ordered four more
Now I?m writing for
The Weekly Volcano Press

Jo/Clarissa/Rodrigo:
I?m ready for destiny
My tresses are curled
I?ll take what is rightly mine
With curtains unfurled
I will not quit I won?t be forgotten
I?ll shine, I?ll dazzle and more
I?m ready to take a bow
I?ve taken a solemn vow
My destiny here and now
I?ll astonish the world!

Professor Bhaer/Mrs. Kirk/Hag/Troll/Knight:
(Sung at the same time)
Sometimes when you dream
Your dreams come true
In extraordinary ways
Suddenly a day can be so amazing
And sometimes when you yearn
You burn the air
And someone else feels the flame
You always knew
was there
