Temper, Temper lyrics

Temper, Temper

Jane (spoken):
What's happening?
I don't understand.

Valentine (spoken):
I'm sure you don't Jane.
You and Michael think you have nothing to learn
But you don't understand the simplest things.

Michael (spoken):
Why are you all so big?

William (spoken):
You'll find out.

Valentine (spoken):
Children who lose their temper will lost everything else in the end!

Toys:
Temper Temper
Temper Temper
Temper Temper
Temper Temper
Temper Temper
Temper Temper
Temper Temper
Temper Temper
Temper Temper

Valentine:
Temper Temper
Caught you at last
Your quick temper went a bit fast

Valentine & William
This is a place of woe
This is a place where all wicked
Children go.

Michael (spoken):
But this is our nursery.

Valentine (spoken):
No, this is OUR nursery!

Toys:
Temper Temper
That was your crime
We've been watching you for some time
We knew that you'd appear
We knew your temper tantrums would lead you here.

Jane (spoken):
Stop! Leave us alone!

William (spoken):
Pray silence for the judge.

Michael (spoken):
What judge?

William (spoken):
All rise!

Mr. Punch:
Temper Temper
Silence in court!
Is this not the story you thought?
You have to stand on trial
you will not see your parents for quite some while.

Toys:
Children who refuse to learn will not return
Children who refuse to learn will not return

Mr. Punch (spoken):
Are you Jane and Michael Banks?

Jane (spoken):
Yes. And we live at Seventeen Cherry Tree Lane.

Monkey 1 (spoken):
Not any more you don't. You're at Destiny's Crossroads.

Mr. Punch (spoken):
You stand accused of the wanton loss of a most precious commodity
- namely, your temper.

Valentine (spoken):
Call the first witness

Monkeys (spoken):
Call the first witness

William (spoken):
Call the first witness

Glamorous Doll:
Temper Temper think of the cost
Of a temper once it's been lost
You cannot get it back
It's no excuse to say that your mood was black

Toys:
Black! Black! Black! Black!

Valentine (spoken):
Call the surprise witness.

Monkeys (spoken):
Call the surprise witness.

William (spoken):
Call the surprise witness.

Jack-in-a-box (spoken):
Surprise!

Mr. Punch (spoken):
Yes.

Jack-in-a-box (spoken):
I saw them your Honor. They were fighting over Valentine.

Mr Punch (spoken):
Go On.

Jack-in-a-box (spoken):
And... and... tore his arm, again.

Toys:
Children who refuse to learn will not return
Children who refuse to learn will not return
Temper Temper Temper Temper Temper Temper Temper Temper

Mr Punch (spoken):
What is your verdict?

Toys:
Guilty!

Mr Punch:
You stand there bold as brass
You face the stiffest sentence this court can pass

Toys:
Children who refuse to learn will not return
Children who refuse to learn will not return
Temper Temper
