Goin' Places

 
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Goin' Places Joe:
Me and the old man mapped it out
Fastest route to the Senate floor
Youngest man to be senator elect

Edie:
How so?

Joe:
The usual way...

Pick up some medals overseas
Kick the butts of those SOBs
Zip back home,
Get married and gain respect

I'll fly back here to Easthampton, scoop you right up into the cockpit.

Edie:
My hair!

Joe:
Kid, we're goin' places
Goin' places you never dreamed you'd see
As your social graces give some panache to me

Edie:
I'll do my best.

Joe:
With your pensive smile
And fairer style
That debonaire joie de vivre

Kid, we're goin' places your mama won't believe

Edie:
You know the trouble with the White House, Joe?

Joe:
Un-uh.

Edie:
It could use a little color.

Picture the White House I'd restore
Not to criticize Eleanor
Home decor just isn't her stock in trade

Joe:
You dress up any room just by being in it.

Edie:
And as a former Waldorf deb,
I'll make fashion my cause celeb
Call it my American style crusade!

Remember Joe, it's not what you wear...

Joe:
No, no, no.

Edie:
It's how you wear it.

Both:
Kid, we're goin' places
Goin' places we never dreamed we'd get

Joe:
As our love's embraces fill up the basinet

Edie:
Slow down! Not yet.

With your Colgate grin,
Dick Tracy chin
That Hollywood film star sheen

Both:
Kid, we're goin' places
The nation's never seen

New worlds await
Beyond the garden gate

Joe:
As long as we've each other

Edie:
Long as I escape my mother

Joe:
Your mother? Well, shouldn't I be the one who matters most?

Edie:
But you are. Of course you are.

Joe:
The way you talk, a fella could forget.

Edie:
You're the only one on my dance card.

Both:
Oh, the signs are good
So knock on wood
We're gonna be A-OK

'Cause the place we're goin'
We're goin' all the way
We're goin' all the way

Joe:
We're goin' all the way
We're goin' all the way!
