I Gotta Crow

PETER PAN:
Not me,
It’s just that I am what I am
And I’m me!
When I look at myself
And I see in myself
All the wonderful things that I see
If I’m pleased with myself
I have ev’ry good reason to be.

I’ve gotta crow!
I’m just the cleverest fellow
‘Twas ever my fortune to know;
I taught a trick to my shadow
To stick to the tip of my toe
I’ve gotta crow!

I’ve gotta brag!
I think it’s sweet
I have fingers and feet I can wiggle and wag.
I can climb trees and play tag with the breeze
In the meadows below
I’ve gotta crow!

If I were a very ordinary
Ev’ry day thing,
I’d never be heard cock-a-doodling
‘Round like a bird!

So Naturally
When I discover the cleverness of a remarkable me,
How can I hide it
When deep down inside it just tickles me so
That I’ve gotta let go and crow!

I’m really a rare thing,
Such a fair thing,
I can’t keep still!
I’m bursting with pride
And I just couldn’t keep it inside
If I tried so…

Naturally
When I discover the cleverness of a remarkable me,
How can I hide it
When deep down inside it just tickles me so
That I’ve gotta let go and crow!


Neverland

I have a place where dreams are born,
And time is never planned.
It’s not on any chart,
You must find it with your heart.
Never Never Land.

It might be miles beyond the moon,
Or right there where you stand.
Just keep an open mind,
And then suddenly you’ll find
Never Never Land.

You’ll have a treasure if you stay there,
More precious far than gold.
For once you have found your way there,
You can never, never grow old.

And that’s my home where dreams are born,
And time is never planned.
Just think of lovely things.
And your heart will fly on wings,
Forever in Never Never Land.

You’ll have a treasure if you stay there,
More precious far than gold.
For once you have found your way there,
You can never, never grow old.

And that’s my home where dreams are born,
And time is never planned.
Just think of lovely things.
And your heart will fly on wings,
Forever in Never Never Land


I’m Flying
JOHN:”Can you really fly?”
PETER:”I’ll teach you.”

PETER and CHILDREN:
I’m flying
(Flying, flying, flying)
Look at me way up high,
Suddenly here am I
I’m flying.

I’m flying
(Flying, flying, flying)
I can soar
I can weave and what’s more
I’m not even trying

High up, and as light as I can be.
I must be a sight lovely to see.

I’m flying.
(Flying, flying, flying)
Nothing will stop me now:
Higher still look at how
I can zoom around,
‘Way up off the ground
I’m flying.

I fly and I’m all over the place
You try and you fall flat on your face

I’m flying.
(Flying, flying, flying)
Over bed, over chair
Duck your head, clear the air
Oh, what lovely fun
Watch me everyone
Take a look at me
A see how easily it’s done
I’m flying!

CHILDREN:
Oh, teach us Peter, please, teach us!

PETER PAN:
First I must blow the fairy dust on you!
(blows)
Shhh…
Shhh…
Shhh…
Now think lovely thoughts

ALL:
Think lovely thoughts
Think lovely thoughts
Fishing
Hoopskirt
Candy!

Picnics
Summer
Candy!

Sailing
Flowers
Candy!

Lovelier thoughts, Michael!

Christmas?!

PETER PAN:
Ah, ah, flying!
Like an owl, like a bat,
Or the crow,
It’s so satisfying!

I’m whizzing
Through a cloud
Past the star
I’m so proud
Look how far I breeze in
High over the moon
Higher I fly
By old mister moon
Wave me goodbye

I’m flying.
(Flying, flying, flying)
Heading far out of sight
Second star to the right
Now the way is clear
Never Land is near
Follow all the air
Cause I’m about to disappear
I’m flying!


Hook’s Tango
HOOK:
We’ll cook a cake quite large
and fill each layer in between
with icing mixed with poison
til it turns a tempting green

PIRATES:
icing mixed with poison
til it turns a tempting green

HOOK:
we’ll place it near the house
just where the boys are sure to come
and being greedy they won’t care to
question such a plum

PIRATES:
the boys who have no mother sweet

HOOK:
no one to show them their mistake
Pirates: won’t know it’s dangerous to eat

HOOK:
so damp and rich a cake-

and so before the winking of an eye
those boys will eat that poison cake
and one by one they’ll die-

PIRATES:
they’ll die, they’ll die, they’ll die, they’ll die, they’ll die-!

ALL:
OLE’!!!

Wendy

PETER PAN:
We’ll need lots of wood
Need lots of leaves
Need lots of paint
But hush hush hush hush hush…

Let’s be quiet as a mouse
And build a lovely little house
For Wendy
Oh for Wendy
She’s come to stay

ALL:
We have a mother,
At last we have a mother!

PETER PAN:
Home sweet home
Upon the wall
A welcome mat
Down in the hall for Wendy
So that Wendy
Won’t go away!

ALL:
We have a mother,
At last we have a mother!

PETER PAN:
Oh what pleasure
She’ll bring to us
Make us pockets and sing to us
Tell us stories we’ve been longing to hear
Over and over!

She’ll be waiting at the door
We won’t be lonely anymore
Since Wendy
Lovely Wendy’s here to stay

(Whistling)

ALL:
We have a mother,
At last we have a mother!

(Whistling)

ALL:
We have a mother,
At last we have a mother!

PETER PAN:
Oh what pleasure
She’ll bring to us
Make us pockets and sing to us
Tell us stories we’ve been longing to hear
Over and over!

She’ll be waiting at the door
We won’t be lonely anymore
Since Wendy

ALL:
Lovely Wendy’s here to stay
We have a mother,
At last we have a mother!

PETER PAN:
She’ll be our mother,
It’s nice to have a mother!

ALL:
Wendy’s here to stay!


I Won’t Grow Up

I won’t grow up.
I don’t wanna go to school,
Just to learn to be a parrot,
And recite a silly rule.
If growing up means it would be
Beneath my dignity to climb a tree,
I’ll never grow up, never grow up, never
grow up,
Not me!
Never gonna be a man — I won’t!
Like to see somebody try and make me.
Anyone who wants to try and make me
Turn into a man, catch me if you can!
I won’t grow up.
Not a penny will I pinch.
I will never grow a mustache,
Or a fraction of an inch.
‘Cause growing up is awfuller
Than all the awful things that ever were,
I’ll never grow up, never grow up, never
grow up,
No sir! — Not me! — So there!
I won’t grow up.
________________________________

I’ll never grow up, never grow up, never
grow up,
Not me!


Distant Melody

Once upon a time and long ago
I heard someone singing
Soft and low
Now when day is done
And night is near
I recall this song I used to hear
My child, my very own,
Don’t be afraid, you’re not alone
Sleep until the dawn
For all is well
Long ago this song was sung to me
Now it’s just a distant melody
Somewhere from the past I used to know
Once upon a time
And long ago…


When I Went Home
When I went home
I thought that certainly
Someone would leave the door or window open wide for me
And surely there would a welcome light
When I went home
I counted so upon
Somebody waiting up to ask me questions on and on
To ask me where I’d come
Was I alright?
But the door was bared and the window bared
And I knew with an awful dread
That somebody else, some other boy was sleeping in my bed
When I went home
I found that sad to say
You must expect to be forgotten once you’ve gone away
And so I couldn’t stay that lonely night when I went home…

But the door was bared and the window bared
And I knew with an awful dread
That somebody else, some other boy was sleeping in my bed
When I went home
I found that sad to say
You must expect to be forgotten once you’ve gone away
And so I couldn’t stay that lonely night when I went home


Hook’s Waltz

HOOK:
I’m the greatest villain of all time!
Who is Blue Beard?
(Nobody!)
Who is Nero?
(Nobody!)
Who is Jack the Ripper?
(Nobody!)
Ahahaha!
Who’s the swiniest swine in world?
(Captain Hook! Captain Hook!)
Who’s the dirtiest dog in this wonderful world?
(Captain Hook! Captain Hook!)
Captain of villainy
Madder and loot lout
Eager to kill any
Who says that his hook isn’t cute!
(It’s cute!)
Ahahahah!

Slimiest rat in the pack?
(Captain Hook! Captain Hook!)
Who’s unlaughable?
(You!)
Who’s unliftable?
(You!)
Whose existence is quite unforgivable?
(You!)
Who would stoop to the cheapest and lowest
Of tricks in the book?
(Tricks in the book)
Blame me, slay me,
Captain Hook!
