WE CAN BE SEVENTEEN

 

Solo 1:

Listen up folks
War is over
Brand new sheriff's come to town

We are done with acting evil
We will lay our weapons down


Solo 2:

We're all damaged, we're all frightened
We're all freaks but that's alright

We'll endure it, we'll survive it
Tell me, are you free tonight?


Solo 3

I can't promise no more Heathers
High school may not ever end
Still, I miss you, I'd be honored
If you'd let me be your friend

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WAVING THROUGH A WINDOW

 

Solo 1:

I've learned to slam on the brake
Before I even turn the key
Before I make the mistake
Before I lead with the worst of me

 

Solo 2:

Give them no reason to stare
No slipping up if you slip away
So I got nothing to share
No, I got nothing to say

 

Solo 3:

Step out, step out of the sun
If you keep getting burned
Step out, step out of the sun
Because you've learned, because you've learned

 

All:

On the outside, always looking in
Will I ever be more than I've always been?
'Cause I'm tap, tap, tapping on the glass
I'm waving through a window
I try to speak, but nobody can hear
So I wait around for an answer to appear
While I'm watch, watch, watching people pass
I'm waving through a window, oh
Can anybody see, is anybody waving back at me?

 

Solo 4:

We start with stars in our eyes
We start believing that we belong
But every sun doesn't rise
And no one tells you where you went wrong

 

Solo 5:

Step out, step out of the sun
If you keep getting burned
Step out, step out of the sun
Because you've learned, because you've learned

 

 

 

All:

On the outside, always looking in
Will I ever be more than I've always been?
'Cause I'm tap, tap, tapping on the glass
Waving through a window
I try to speak, but nobody can hear
So I wait around for an answer to appear
While I'm watch, watch, watching people pass
Waving through a window, oh
Can anybody see, is anybody waving?

 

Solo 1:

When you're falling in a forest and there's nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound?

 

Solo 1&2
When you're falling in a forest and there's nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound?

 

Solo 1,2,3,4
When you're falling in a forest and there's nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound?

 

All:
When you're falling in a forest and there's nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound?

Did I even make a sound?
Did I even make a sound?
It's like I never made a sound
Will I ever make a sound?

EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE

 

Solos 5&6

You should have seen it
You should have been there
You won't believe the stuff we saw that went down in there

Solos 7&8

The men were women
The girls were fellas
They did a rain dance wearing nothing but umbrellas
Pass it on!

Solos 9&10
There was a lady
She had a sister
But it was kinda weird that way the lady kissed her

 

Solos 11&12

There were a woman
Whose name was Norman
And the frilly knickers
That was just the doorman
Pass it on!

Solo 13
There was a doorman
Whose name was Norman
And then the doorman kissed his sister

Solo 14
She's a Mormon

Solo 15&16

I heard there's dungeons
Inside the cellars
Where they rain down pain and spank you with umbrellas

All:
Everybody's talking 'bout Jamie
Everybody's talking 'bout J-J-Jamie
Everybody's talking 'bout the boy in the dress who was born to impress
Everybody's talking 'bout the things that he wore
Everybody's listening 'cause we need to know more
Everybody's talking 'bout the boy in the wig 'cause he's gonna be big

Everybody's talking 'bout Jay-ay-ay-amie

Everybody's talking 'bout Jamie
Everybody's talking 'bout J-J-Jamie
Everybody's talking 'bout the boy on the stage who broke out of his cage

Everybody's talking 'bout the switch and the lips
Everybody's talking 'bout the ….. and the hips
Everybody's talking 'bout
The crazy kid and all the things that he did
Everybody's talking about Jay-ay-ay-amie

 


 

Solo 17:

What is this feeling
So sudden and new?

I felt the moment
I laid eyes on you

 

Solo 18:

My pulse is rushing

My head is reeling

My face is flushing

What is this feeling?

 

All:
Fervid as a flame
Does it have a name?
Yes!
Loathing
Unadulterated loathing

 

Group 1:

For your face

 

Group 2:

Your voice

 

Group 1:

Your clothing

 

Group 2:

Let's just say

 

All:

I loathe it all!
Every little trait, however small
Makes my very flesh begin to crawl
With simple utter loathing
There's a strange exhilaration
In such total detestation
It's so pure! So strong!
Though I do admit it came on fast
Still I do believe that it can last
And I will be loathing
Loathing you
My whole life

 

Solo 19&20:

You will be

Popular! You're gonna be popular!
I'll teach you the proper poise
When you talk to boys
Little ways to flirt and flounce
Ooh!


Solo 21&22

We'll show you what shoes to wear!
How to fix your hair!
Everything that really counts to be

Popular!

 

All:
We'll help you be popular!
You'll hang with the right cohorts
You'll be good at sports
Know the slang you've got to know

So let's start
'Cause you've got an awfully long way to go!

 

Solo 23

Don't be offended by my frank analysis
Think of it as personality dialysis

 

Solo 24:
Now that I've chosen to become a
Pal, a sister and advisor
There's nobody wiser!

 

All:
Not when it comes to

Popular!
We know about popular

 

Solo 25:
And with an assist from me
To be who you'll be

 

Solo 26:
Instead of dreary who you were
Well, are
There's nothing that can stop you
From becoming popu-ler... lar

 

All:

La la, la la! You’ll be popular

Just not quite as popular as me.

 


 

All:

Let's go be seventeen
Take off our shoes and dance
Act like we're all still kids
Cause this could be our final chance
!
Always be seventeen
Celebrate you and I
Maybe we won't grow old

 

And maybe then we'll never die
We'll make it beautiful
We'll make it beautiful
Beautiful x10
