Who Could Ask for Anything More? Lyrics

MARY:
I'm about to be a mother;
He's about to be a father;
We're about to have a baby.
I must tell it;
These doings compel it!
Oh, I'm about to be a mother;
He's about to be a father;
We're about to have a baby.

ENSEMBLE:
A baby!

MARY:
A baby to love and adore-
Who could ask for anything more?

ENSEMBLE:
She's about to be a mother;
He's about to be a father;
They're about to have a baby.
We can't bother
A budding young father!

WINTERGREEN:
[SPOKEN]
Mary, is it true? Am I going to have a baby?

MARY:
It's true, John, it's true.

WINTERGREEN:
Water!
[HE FAINTS]

ENSEMBLE:
[SINGS]
They're about to have a baby, a baby-

DIANA:
[SPOKEN]
It eez a fine situation-I am compromised and she has ze baby!

THROTTLE:
Gentlemen, gentlemen! This country has never yet
impeached an expectant father. What do you say?

SENATORS:
Not guilty!

THROTTLE:
[TO WINTERGREEN]
You can still be President and I'll go back to Vice!

FRENCH AMBASSADOR:
Sacr?! I go to thc telegraph office to cable my report;
This is American trickery of the most reprehensible sort!

DIANA:
[SINGS]
I was ze most beautiful blossom...
[FRENCH AMBASSADOR TAKES HER BY THE HAND, LEADS HER OFF]
In all ze Southland.

ATLANTIC CITY GIRLS:
Strike up thc cymbals, drum, and fife,
One of us was to be the President's wife.

CHIEF JUSTICE:
[SPOKEN]
Great work, Jack; you'll be reinstated in the hearts of the
American people.

JONES:
Great work, Jack. You've got your duty by posterity.

WINTERGREEN:
Posterity - why, posterity is just around the corner.
