Rich and Happy lyrics

Rich and Happy

TERRY
So we bough this little condominium ?

KATE
So we found this little Chinese gardener ?

JEROME
It's a clear case of studio politics ?

PHOTOGRAPHER
We were stuck on the freeway till half past six ?

FOUR GUESTS
(individually)
Great ?
Smog ?
Points ?

(A hefty snort of cocaine.)

ALL
Party!

FRANK
Life is swinging,
Skies are blue and bells are ringing.
Every day I wake up singing,
"Look at me, I'm rich and happy!"

Days are sunny,
Working hard for lots of money,
Filled with people smart and funny,
Filled with people rich and happy.

Who says, "Lonely at the top"?
I say, "Let it never stop!"
It's my time coming through,
All my dreams are coming true:
Gorgeous house, gorgeous wife,
Who wants any more from life?

Skies are beaming,
Future bright and prospects gleaming.
Best of all, I don't stop dreaming
Just because I'm rich
And famous
And therefore
Happy, too!

ALL
Party!

GUEST
Well, you must admit the movie's terrible ?

ANOTHER GUEST
I imagine Frank is feeling terrible ?

MARY
These are the movers,
These are the shapers,
These are the people
That fill the papers.

ALL
Terrible ?

MARY
These are the friends of Frank ?

ALL
Wasn't it just terrible?

MARY
They all have Frank to thank.

ALL
When you see a movie that bad,
What on earth can you say?
(to Frank)
Congratulations!

FRANK
Thanks.

MARY
These are the movers,
These are the shapers,
These are the people
That give you vapors ?

FRANK
Twenty years ago who'd have guessed,
Who'd have guessed
I'd be standing here,
Playing host to the very best,
All the powers that be?

ALL
Terrible ?

FRANK
Everybody I see ?

ALL
Wasn't it just ?

FRANK
And look who's one of them ? me!

GROUP I
Terrible ?

GROUP II
Beautiful, Frank!
(to each other)
Wasn't it just terrible?

GROUP I
Beautiful, Frank!

ALL
When a movie's that bad,
What on earth can anyone say?

ALL
(except Mary)
Party!

Life is swinging,
Skies are blue and bells are ringing.
Every day I wake up singing,
"Look at me, I'm rich and happy!"
Days go zipping,
Sitting by the pool and tripping.

MARY
Everybody's flip or flipping.
Everybody's rich ?

ALL
And happy!

FRANK
Who says all our dreams get burned?
Every bit of this was earned.
It's our time coming through ?
All our dreams coming true!
ALl our days full of beans,

ALL
This must be what happy means!

Skies are beaming,
Future bright and prospects gleaming!
Best of all, we don't stop dreaming
Just because we're rich

FRANK
And famous

ALL
And suntanned

FRANK
And influential

ALL
And on the covers of magazines
And in the columns and on the screens
And giving interviews,
Being photographed,
Making all the important scense,
And ?
At the parties cutting capers,
And on the talk shows and in the papers
And unbelieveably
Happy, too!
