Extra

 
Miss Liberty Soundtrack Musical, 1949
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Extra 6 Newsboys:
Extra!
Extra!
Morning, Noon, and Night we yell
Trying very hard to sell
Mr. Bennett's morning Herald, Mr. Pulitzer's morning World
Extra!
Extra!
Every day the same old grind
Getting worse because we find
That it's gard to sell the Herald, while it's easy to sell the World

3 Newsboys:
That isn't good for Mr. Bennett, so it's driving him nuts

Other 3:
And the result is Mr. Bennett hates Mr. Pulitzer's guts

All 6:
They're a-feudin' and a-fussin' and a-fussin' and a-feudin' and it don't seem to make much sense
Mr.Bennett's usin' the kind of words that we wouldn't write on a fence
Extra!
Extra!
Who will in is hard to tell
In the meantime we must sell
Mr. Bennett's morning Herald, Mr. Pulitzer's morning World

Readers (yelling, the World is the more popular):
Give me a World! Give me a World! Give me a Herald!
Give me a World! Give me a World! Give me a Herald!

Newsboys:
Extra!

Herald Readers:
I like the Herald filled with stock market news
Smart social items and conservative views
It's quite amazing how we always agree!
I'm for the Herald 'cause the Herald's for me!

World Readers:
Couldn't eat a meal without the World
That's the way we feel about the World
It's the people's paper, yes indeed
With the kind of news we like to read
Circulation bigger every day,
'Spite of what the other papers say!
'Spite of accusations that are hurled
Never was a paper like the World

Herald and World Readers Simultaneously:
Couldn't eat a meal without the World
That's the way we feel about the World
It's the people's paper, yes indeed
With the kind of news we like to read
Circulation bigger every day,
'Spite of what the other papers say!
'Spite of accusations that are hurled
Never was a paper like the World

(I like the Herald filled with stock market news
Smart social items and conservative views
It's quite amazing how we always agree!
I'm for the Herald 'cause the Herald's for me!)

All:
Extra!
Extra!
Soon they'll/we'll all be getting hell
Just because they/we couldn't sell
Mr. Bennett's morning Herald,
And they're/our be imperiled when he hears how many they/we sold of Mr.
Pulitzer's morning World
Extra!
Extra!
