I Want To See a Musical! by Manny
“But MOM! I want to see a musical!”
“We can’t afford it! Don’t you understand!?”
The song begins:
Girl: But mother, can’t you see? Can’t you see the crowd applauding in Grease?
Mother: But still, it costs too much! I’m not seeing anything-
Girl: Mother, the adventures! The adventures that we can share together!
Mother: But we don’t have enough money! Money, money, money!
Girl: Mother, the excitements! The great songs, great acting!
Mother: Yes, it sounds nice, but we don’t have that much money. Can’t YOU see!?
Girl: I’m trying to, I’m trying. But I can’t get over the Broadway musicals!
Mother: But you need to understand, that WE! CANNOT! AFFORD! IT!
Girl: You could’ve just said that before.
