Why Should I Worry (Reprise)



Once Upon a Time in New York City
Huey Lewis

Now it's always once upon a time
In New York City
It's a big old, bad old, tough old town
it's true
But beginnings are contagious there
They're always settin' stages there
They're always turning pages there for you

Ain't it great the way it all begins
in New York City?
Right away you're makin' time and makin' friends
No one cares where you were yesterday
If they pick you out, you're on your way
To a once upon a time
that never ends

So, Oliver, don't be shy
Get out there and go and try
Believin' that you're the guy
They're dyin' to see
'Cause a dream's no crime
Now once upon a time
Once upon a time
in New York City

If it's always once upon a time
In New York City
Why does nightfall find you feelin' so alone?
How could anyone stay starry-eyed
When it's rainin' cats and dogs outside
And the rain is saying, "Now you're on your own"?

So, Oliver don't be scared
Though yesterday no one cared
They're getting your place prepared
Where you wanna be

Keep your dream alive
Dreamin' is still how the strong survive
Once upon a time in New York City

Keep your dream alive
Dreamin' is still how the strong survive
Once upon a time in New York City

Keep your dream alive
Dreamin' is still how the strong survive
Once upon a time in New York City
And it's always once upon a time
In New York City



Why Should I Worry?
Dodger

One minute I'm in Central Park
Then I'm down on Delancy Street
Say, from the Bowery to St. Marks
There's a syncopated beat
Like I said, woo-hoo
woo-hoo-oo

I'm streetwise
I can improvise
Said, ooo-hoo-woo-hoo-oo
I'm street smart
I've got New York City heart

Why should I worry?
Why should I care?
I may not have a dime
But I got street savoir faire

Why should I worry?
Why should I care?
It's just be-bopulation
And I got street savior faire
Mmm-hmm

The rhythm of the city
Boy, once you get it down
Then you can own this town
You can wear the crown

Why should I worry?
Why should I care?
Say, I may not have a dime
But I got street savoir faire

Why should I worry?
Why should I care?
It's just be-bopulation
I got street savior faire

Everything goes
Everything fits
They love me at the Chelsea
They adore me at the Ritz

Why should I worry?
Why should I care?
Yeah!
And even when I cross that line
I got street savoir faire

Woo-hoo
Said, ooo-ooo woo-hoo-oo
Whoa!

Woo-hoo-hoo-hoo-oo
Woo-ooo Woo-hoo-oo
Woo-hoo Woo-ooo-oo
Woo-hoo Woo-hoo-oo

Woo-hoo Woo-ooo-oo
Woo-hoo Woo-hoo-oo
Woo-hoo Woo-hoo-oo
Woo-hoo Woo-hoo-oo
Woo-hoo Woo-hoo-oo



Streets of Gold
Rita

Ooo, yeah!
Now listen up
You got a lot to learn
And if you don't learn
you don't eat
But if you're tough
And always use your head
You'll be right at home on the street

When you've got talent 
everything is free
Watch how we do things
oooh, I guarantee
You're gonna see how the best survive
We make an art out 
of staying alive
If you do just as you're told
These are streets of gold

Every boulevard is a miracle mile
You'll take the town and
you'll take it with style
If you play it brave and bold
These are streets of gold



Perfect Isn't Easy
Georgette

Girl, we've got work to do
Pass me the paint and glue
Perfect isn't easy
But...It's...Me

When one knows the world is watching
One does what one must
Some minor adjustments, darling
Not for my vanity
but for humanity

Each little step a pose
See how the breeding shows
Ooo
Sometimes it's too much
for even me

But when all the world says, "Yes"
Then who am I to say "No"?
Don't ask a mutt to strut like a show girl
No, girl, you need a pro

Not a flea or a flaw
Take a peek at that paw
La-de-da-da

Perfection becomes me
nest ce pas?
Unrivaled, unruffled
I'm beauty unleashed
Yeah!

Jaws drop, hearts stop
So classic and classy
We're not talking Lassie
Aaa Aaa Ooo Ooo

Though many covet
my bone and bowl
They're barkin' up the wrong tree
You pretty pups all over the city
I have your hearts 
and you have my pity

Pretty is nice
but still it's just pretty
Perfect, my dears
Is me
Ooo



Good Company
Jennifer

You and me together 
we'll be...forever
You'll see
We two can be good company
You and me

Yes, together we two
Together that's you
Forever with me
We'll always be 
good company
You and me
Yes, together we'll be

You and me together
Will be...forever
You'll see
We'll always be 
good company
You and me
Just wait and see
