by . From A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.


[PSEUDOLUS]
Oh, what a word!
Oh, what a word!
Say it again.

[HERO]
Free!

[PSEUDOLUS]
I often thought,
I often dreamed how it would be--
And yet I never thought I'd be--
Once again.

[HERO]
Free!

[PSEUDOLUS]
But when you come to think of such things,
A man should have the rights that all others--
Can you imagine what it will be like when I am--
Can you see me?
Can you see me as a Roman with my head unbowed?
Sing it good and loud!

[HERO]
Free!

[PSEUDOLUS]
Like a Roman having rights and like a Roman proud?
Can you see me?

[HERO]
I can see you.

[PSEUDOLUS]
Can you see me, a reformer fighting graft and vice?
Sing it soft and nice!

[HERO]
Free!

[PSEUDOLUS]
Why, I'll be so consciencious that I may vote twice!
Can you see me?
Can you see me?
When I'm free to be whatever I want to be,
Think what wonders I'll accomplish then!
When the master that I serve is me and just me--
Can you see me being equal with my countrymen?
Can you see me being Pseudolus the citizen?
Can you see me being--give it to me once again--

[HERO]
Free!

[PSEUDOLUS]
Yes!

[HERO]
Free!

[PSEUDOLUS]
That's it!

[HERO]
Free!

[PSEUDOLUS]
Now, not so fast!
I didn't think--
The way I am,
I have a roof, three meals a day,
And I don't have to pay a thing.
I'm just a slave and everything's free.
If I were free, then nothing would be free!
And if I'm beaten now and then, what does it matter?

[HERO]
Free!

[PSEUDOLUS]
Can you see me?
Can you see me as a poet writing poetry?
All my verse will be--

[HERO]
Free.

[PSEUDOLUS]
A museum will have me pickled for posterity.
Can you see me?

[HERO]
I can see you.

[PSEUDOLUS]
Can you see me as a lover, one of great renown?
Women falling down--

[HERO]
Free?

[PSEUDOLUS]
No.
But I'll buy the house of Lycus for my house in town.
Can you see me?
Can you see me?
Be you anything from king to baker of cakes,
You're a vegetable unless you're free.
Such a little word, but oh, the difference it makes!
It's the necessary essence of democracy,
It's the thing that every slave should have the right to be,
And I soon will have the right to buy a slave for me.
Can you see him?
Well, I'll free him!
When a Pseudolus can move, the universe shakes,
But I'll never move until I'm free.
Such a little word, but oh, the difference it makes!
I'll be Pseudolus, the founder of a family,
I'll be Pseudolus, the pillar of society,
I'll be Pseudolus the man, if I can only be--

[HERO]
Free!

[PSEUDOLUS]
Sing it!

[HERO]
Free!

[PSEUDOLUS]
Spell it!

[HERO]
F-r- double--

[PSEUDOLUS]
No, the long way!

[HERO]
F-r-e-e!

[PSEUDOLUS AND HERO]
Free!
