Where Did We Go Wrong Lyrics


by Bebe Neuwirth. From Addams Family, The.


Morticia (Spoken):
She's perky

Gomez (Spoken):
She's bubbly

Morticia (Spoken):
She's optimistic

Gomez(Spoken):
Where did we go wrong?

Morticia:
We taught her to hunt

Gomez:
We taught her to aim

Morticia:
We gave her a bow

Gomez:
We gave her no shame

Morticia:
We gave what we had

Gomez:
Made sure she was bad

Both:
Did all that we could to keep her sad

Gomez:
We told her to stay away from modern jazz

Morticia:
We gaver her that week long trip to Alcatraz

Gomez:
We promised she'd be equipped

Both:
And filled her crypt with woe
What'd we know?

Gomez:
We took her to funerals in the morning mist

Morticia:
We took her to slaughter houses

Gomez:
Schindler's list

Morticia:
We taught her to scowl and sneer and domineer

Gomez:
On cue

Both:
What did we do?
Where did we go wrong?

Gomez (Spoken):
Are we good parents?

Both:
Where did we go wrong?

Morticia (Spoken):
Are we cliche?

Both:
Somewhere in between
Guilt and guillotine
We forgot to notice that our daughter lost her way
Where did we go wrong?

Morticia:
And can we fix this?

Gomez:
Maybe it's a passing phase

Both:
But if she's going wrong
Then what will change her ways?

Gomez (Spoken):
That's it! We'll cancel this dinner

Morticia (Spoken):
We'll circle the wagon

Gomez (Spoken):
And give these "goody-licious" Beinekes the boot!

Morticia:
We must intervene

Gomez:
We shouldn't delay

Morticia:
She's barely eighteen

Gomez:
So what do we say?

Morticia:
We know the occult

Gomez:
That's certainly true

Morticia:
We're to consult

Gomez:
Morticia, with you

Morticia:
So why all the fuss?

Gomez:
My darling, discuss

Morticia:
She needs only us

Gomez:
It's us, only us

Morticia:
We've always been there for her
To swear for her



Gomez:
Discourage dental care for her

Both:
Do well for her
Excel for her
Make home a living hell for her
So where did we go wrong
Is not the question
Resolute and strong
Is our next move

Gomez:
We'll tell her today

Morticia:
Do what we say

Both:
Send all the Beinekes back to the fray
Turn them away at first sight
And that's where we'll go right?

Both(Spoken):
No dinner tonight!

[Thanks to Sam for lyrics]
