World, Take Me Back

 
Hello, Dolly! Soundtrack Musical, 2003
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

World, Take Me Back Dolly
I've sliced my slice of life a little thin
Haven't I, Ephraim?
I've been on the outside looking in
Haven't I, Ephraim?
Well, from now on, Ephraim,
All that's going to change.

The world is full of wonderful things,
a bushel of wonderful things for me to believe in
So world, take me back
I want to be part of the human race again

And bid good-bye to all my trouble and tears
I've wasted so many odd years
It's time to get even
So world, take me back
I want to let laughter light up my face again

Oh, no more peeking through the keyhole
I intend to have my own key
No more sneaking past the parlor
From now on, it's me sitting on the settee.

Oh, today's a day to holler about
for after just sitting life out
since heavens know when.

My step has a spring and a drive
I'm suddenly young and alive
You wonderful world,
Take me back again!

The world is full of Aprils & Junes
Red roses and yello' balloons
For me to hang onto
So world, take me back
I want to be
part of those good old days again!

Whatever happened to those wonderful days
night-away nights, oh where have they gone to?
So world, take me back,
I want to be
there when the gas light flames again!
Oh, no more watching from the sidelines
I intend to star in the show
No more reaching for tomorrow
from now on, I stand with today in my hand.

For today the world is ripe as a peach,
it's going to be mine till I reach a 110.

My step has a spring and a drive
I'm suddenly young and alive
You wonderful world,
Take me back again!
