Run And Tell That!

 
Hairspray Cast Lyrics
Hairspray Soundtrack Musical, 2002

Run And Tell That! Hey!

I can't see
Why people look at me
And only see the color of my face

And then there's those
That try to help, god knows
But always have to put me in my place

but i won't ask you to be color blind
'Cause if you pick the fruit
Then girl, you're sure to find...

The blacker the berry
The sweeter the juice
I could say it ain't so
But darlin', what's the use?

The darker the chocolate
The richer the taste
And that's where it's at...
... now baby run and tell that!!

ENSEMBLE
Run and tell that!

SEAWEED
Run and tell that!

ENSEMBLE
Run and tell that!

SEAWEED (& ENSEMBLE)
I can't see
Why people disagree
Each time i tell them what i know is true

no no!

And if you come
And see the world i'm from
1 bet your heart is gonna feel it too

Yeah. I could lie
But baby. Let's be bold
Vanilla can be nice
But if the truth be told...

The blacker the berry
The sweeter the juice
I could say it ain't so
But darlin', what's the use

The darker the chocolate
The richer the taste
That's where it's at

oh baby baby run and tell that!!

Seaweed + ENSEMBLE
Run and tell that!

SEAWEED
Come here girl, This is my sister Li'l Inez!

LI'L INEZ
Oh I know Tracy Turnblad! Good For you girl you got on the show!

TRACY
Well you better be next

Li'L INEZ
You got that right.

SEAWEED
Oh you know she is you better show em' girl!


LI'L INEZ
I'm tired of coverin' up all my pride

SEAWEED & ENSEMBLE
So give me five on the black-hand side

LI'L INEZ
I've got a new way of movin'
And i got my own voice

SEAWEED & ENSEMBLE
So how can i help
But to shout and rejoice

LI'L INEZ
The people 'round here
Can barely pay their rent
They're "try'n to make dollar
Out 'a fifteen cent"
But we got a spirit
Money just cant buy

LI'L INEZ & ENSEMBLE
It's deep as a river
And soars to the sky!

SEAWEED & ENSEMBLE
I cant see
The reason it cant be
The kinda world where we all get our chance

oh yeah!

The time is now
And we can show them how
To turn the music up and let's all dance

'Cause all things are equal
When it comes to love
Well, that ain't quite true
'Cause when push comes to shove...

The blacker the berry
The sweeter the juice
I could say it ain't so
But darlin', what's the use?

The darker the chocolate
The richer the taste
That's where it's at

SEAWEED
... no baby baby baby run and tell that!!

ENSEMBLE
Run and tell that!

SEAWEED
Run and tell that!! oh baby
go run and tell that! g-g-g-g-g-go on!
go run and tell... that-iat-iat-iat!
babbbbbbbbbbbbbby! yeah yeah yeeahah yeahhhh! woah!!!
