SONG 2 A Friend Like You – Track 2

Music with vocals

 

CINDERELLA

CHORUS

I’m glad to have a friend like you,

Buttons I know it’s true, you’re there for me.

 

BUTTONS

I’m here and we’re a funny pair,

Cinders you know I care about you.

I remember when you first became my friend,

We’d dream of who we’d like to be.

Many were the days we played our games of make-believe.

 

CINDERELLA

You would be the cowboy racing down the railroad,

Off to set a poor girl free!

 

BOTH

We’d ride off together in the sunset, you and me!

 

CHORUS

 

CINDERELLA

You’re the dashing prince, got turned into a frog –

An evil act of sorcery.

 

BUTTONS

You’re the lucky girl who plants a kiss upon my cheek!

 

CINDERELLA

I would be the princess locked up in a castle,

Nobody to rescue me.

 

BUTTONS

I would be your knight in shining armour, you’d go free!

 

CHORUS x 2 (both sing second time)

Cinders/Buttons you know, I care about you.

 

Each verse could be acted out, using kitchen equipment, eg a colander as shining armour, mop as a horse

SONG 3 It’s Not All It’s Cracked Up To Be – Track 3

Music with vocals

 

ROCKERFELLA

CHORUS

Oh, it’s not all it’s cracked up to be!

I’ve lived a life of fame and celebrity.

I’ve had my name in lights, done concerts every night,

And it’s not all it’s cracked up to be!

 

PAPARAZZI

Oh, it’s not all it’s cracked up to be!

He’s lived a life of fame and celebrity.

He’s had his name in lights, done concerts every night,

And it’s not all it’s cracked up to be!

 

ROCKERFELLA

I’ve headlined every continent, I’ve toured around the world,

From Sydney to New York and back again.

I’ve had my share of compliments from screaming crowds of girls,

But stardom isn’t everything they’d say.

 

CHORUS

 

DAN DEENY

I took you from obscurity, I made you what you are.

It’s thanks to me that you’re a household name.

I’ve given you security, the chauffeur and the car.

I can’t believe you’d throw it all away!

 

CHORUS 

 

DAN DEENY CHORUS

I can’t believe you’d throw it all away!

Maybe you need to take a holiday.

You’re just a little stressed, so get yourself a rest.

Come to your senses and we’ll talk again!

 

CHORUS 

 

ROCKERFELLA

3 The lifestyle of a megastar has lost its gloss for me.

I’m ready to discard my dancing shoes.

 

DAN DEENY

If you give up on your guitar you have my guarantee,

Within a week I’ll find somebody new!

 

CHORUS and DAN DEENY CHORUS together, followed by CHORUS

BAKER(S), UGLY SISTERS & CHORUS

If he wants a wedding cake,

That’s exactly what we’ll make.

It may take time but it’s just fine,

That’s what it takes!

It’s a complicated list,

Lots of things you mustn’t miss.

This recipe will guarantee

Just a little lift!

 

CHORUS

Weigh it, sift it, and check it’s fresh before you put it in,

Use the best ingredients and grease the baking tin!

 

Take a tablespoon of laughs

And a soppy photograph.

Add common sense, try compliments

And you’ll go far!

Take a healthy dose of trust

(And a pinch of fairy dust).

There’s one more thing you must put in,

It’s a ton of love!

 

CHORUS

 

Take a pair of listening ears

And a tissue for your tears,

Three spoons of grace improves the taste

For many years.

Take a bucket load of hugs,

You can never have enough.

There’s one more thing you must put in,

It’s a ton of love!

P5???: That’s the craziest thing that I have ever heard in my life

In fairytales and picture books

The dragon’s slayed and a girl is saved,

And a happier life begun.

With the special girl of his dreams.

If I could find who the slipper fits,

I would ask her to marry me!

All the world was mine!

She was there in my arms

And she smiled as we danced,

And the earth stood still in time.

We were lost in a dream

Till I heard the midnight chime.

Now here I am on my own again,

Wishing you could be here tonight.

SONG 10: Finale Song HAPPY EVER AFTERS – track 10

Music with vocals  

 

Buttons: An offstage inspector one day

Happened to come to our play.

When his verdict he gave,

He did nothing but rave,

And the fairies all went…

 

Fairy Brg: Wey hey, hey!

 

OPTIONAL SOLO

1 Happy-ever-afters don’t come easily,

There are many chapters but no guarantees.

Many pages have to be turned before the tale is told

And the story takes you away from where you want to go.

 

ALL

CHORUS (Part 1)

Cinderella! Rockerfella!

Got together.

Cinderella and her fella got together.

Cinderella! Rockerfella!

Got together.

Cinderella and her fella got together.

 

Happy-ever-afters don’t come easily,

None of us are writers of our destiny.

But the story has its own happiness to be pursued,

Every dream that somebody dares to follow can come true!

 

CHORUS (Part 1)

 

There’s a world that hides itself in fairytales

And it’s not so different from the one we know,

’Cause the story’s full of adventure to be lived and breathed

And I’m sure that anything’s possible when you believe!

 

CHORUS (Part 1)

 

CHORUS (Part 2)

 

Happy ever after, our story ends.

Happy ever after, our story comes to a very happy end!

 

CHORUS (Parts 1 and 2 together)

Happy ever after, our story comes to a very happy end!
