One Small One Small Voice

 

Chorus
One small voice can teach the world a song
Start with one small voice till another joins along
Then you'll feel the music growing full and sure and strong
One small voice can teach the world a song - - -

Verse
Every song the world sings   each was once unknown.
Somebody felt a song inside and wasn't afraid to sing alone.
If you feel the music and you sing it clear and true (higher),
then the world can sing with you.

 

Coda

And teach the world to sing.

MUNCHKINLAND

 

 

Glinda:

Come out, come out, wherever you are

And meet the young lady who fell from a star

(break)

She fell from the sky, she fell very far

And Kansas, she says, is the name of the star

 

Munchkins:

Kansas she says is the name of the star

 

Glinda:

She brings you good news, or haven’t you heard?

When she fell out of Kansas

A miracle occurred

 

Dorothy:

It really was no miracle

What happened was just this

The wind began to switch- the house to pitch

And suddenly the hinges started to unhitch

Just then the witch- to satisfy an itch

Went flying on her broomstick, thumbing for a hitch

And, Oh, what happened then was rich.

 

Munchkins:

The house began to pitch

The kitchen took a slitch

It landed on the wicked witch in the middle of a ditch

Which - was not a healthy situation for the wicked witch

…Who began to twitch

And was reduced to just a stitch

Of what was once the wicked witch.

Over The Rainbow - Audition Song

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
There’s a land that I heard of

Once in a lullaby

Someday, I’ll wish upon a star

And wake up where the clouds are far behind me

- - - - end of girls audition - - - -
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly

Birds fly over the rainbow

Why then, oh why can't I?

If happy little bluebirds fly

Beyond the rainbow
Why oh, why can't I?

If I Only Had A Brain - Audition Song

Girls & Boys can sing this song for the audition.

I could while away the hours, conferrin’ with the flowers

Consultin’ with the rain.

And my head, I’d be scratchin’ while my thoughts were busy hatchin’

If I only had a brain.

IF I ONLY HAD A BRAIN

I could while away the hours, conferrin’ with the flowers

Consultin’ with the rain.

And my head, I’d be scratchin’ while my thoughts were busy hatchin’

If I only had a brain.

I’d unravel every riddle for any individdle in trouble or in pain.

With the thoughts I’d be thinkin’ I could be another Lincoln,

If I only had a brain.

Oh, I….could tell you why ….the ocean’s near the shore,

I could think of things I never thunk before

And then I’d sit, and think some more.

I would not be just a nuffin’, my head all full of stuffin’

My heart all full of pain.

And perhaps I’d deserve you and be even worthy erv you

If I only had a brain.

IF I ONLY HAD A HEART

When a man’s an empty kettle, he should be on his mettle

And yet I’m torn apart.

Just because I’m presumin’ that I could be kinda human

If I only had a heart.

I’d be tender, I’d be gentle and awful sentimental

Regarding love and art.

I’d be friends with the sparrows and the boy that shoots the arrows

If I only had a heart.

Picture me….a balcony….above a voice sings low,

“Wherefore art thou, Romeo?”

I hear a beat (thump thump) How sweet!

Just to register emotion “jealousy” “devotion”

And really feel the part

I would stay young and chipper and I’d lock it with a zipper

If I only had a heart.

DON’T NOBODY BRING ME NO BAD NEWS

Witch:

Now, when I wake up in the afternoon

Which pleases me to do

Don't nobody bring me no bad news

'Cause I wake up already negative

And I've wired up my fuse

So don't nobody bring me no bad news

 You better bone up on the rules

'Cause don't nobody bring me no bad news

If I were King of the Forest
Not queen, not duke, not prince
My regal robes of the forest
Would be satin, not cotton, not chintz

I'd command each thing, be it fish or fowl
With a ruff and a ruff and a royal growl - woof
As I'd click my heel, all the trees would kneel!
And the mountains bow and the bulls kowtow!
And the sparrow would take wing - If I - If I - were King!

Each rabbit would show respect to me

The chipmunks genuflect to me
Though my tail would lash, I would show compash
For every underling!
If I - If I - were King!
Just King!
