Newsies Cast Lyrics
Newsies Soundtrack Movie, 2001
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Once and for All Music by Alan Menken.
Lyrics by Jack Feldman.


DENTON:
This is the story you wanted to write
Well, tonight is the night that you can

JACK:
Just get this done and by dawn's early light
You can finish the fight you began

DAVID:
This time we're in it to stay

SARAH:
Think about seizing the day

JACK:
Think of that train
As she rolls into old Santa Fe
Tell 'em I'm on my way

MORE NEWSIES:
See old man Pulitzer snug in his bed
He don't care if we're dead or alive
Three satin pillows are under his head
While we're beggin' for bread to survive
Joe, if you're still countin' sheep
Wake up and read 'em and weep
You got your thugs
With their sticks and their slugs
Yeah, but we got a promise to keep

Once and for all
Something tells me the tide'll be turnin'
Once and for all
There's a fire inside me
That won't stop burnin'
Now that the choices are clear
Now that tomorrow is here
Watch how the mighty will fall
For once and for all

MORE NEWSIES:
This is for kids shinin' shoes in the street
With no shoes on their feet every day
This is for guys sweatin' blood in the shops
While the bosses and cops look away
This is to even the score
This ain't just newsies no more
This ain't just kids with some pie in the sky
This is do it or die
This is war!

Once and for all
We'll be there to defend one another
Once and for all
Every kid is our friend
Every friend a brother

Five thousand fists in the sky
Five thousand reasons to try
We're goin' over the wall
Better to die than to crawl
Either we stand or we fall
For once
Once and for all
