Happy Endings Lyrics

 

Happy Endings Song Lyrics


SHE:
Happy endings all around me
Happy endings all I see are
Happy endings on a silver screen
That's Hollywood!
Lovely lady
Gallant fellow
Meet one evening hear that cello
Troubles come between
But in that final scene
Count on a happy ending by a river
Happy ending on a mountain
Happy ending in a Broadway show
But oh-
The life I lead is less dramatic
Not remotely cinematic
Happy endings far as I can see
Are only for the stars
Not in the stars for me
HE:
Pst! Pst!
Pardon me, miss,
I've a problem
Then I wonder could you help me
Lost my glove and I could use your light
SHE:
Right!
HE:
I was leaving,
It's so silly,
But I think I must have dropped it
All at once it seemed to disappear--
SHE:
Here!
HE:
Gee, I'm grateful
And I'd like to show you my appreciation
Maybe take you out to dinner--
SOMEBODY:
SSSH!
HE:
When do you get off?
I can wait.
SHE:
Oh no, I coundn't possibly--
HE:
I can wait.
SHE:
Oh well I, I don't do thats.
HE:
I can wait
SOMEBODY:
SSSH!
SHE:
No, I-I--
HE:
I can wait
SHE:
EIGHT!
CHORUS:
Hey, Peggy, you're gonna sing tonight?
Hey, Peggy, you're gonna sing tonight?
HE:
You sing here?
PEGGY:
Sometimes, after work
Relieves the stress
HE:
But you've got stress?
PEGGY:
Yes, I guess!
CHORUS:
Hey, Peggy, you're gonna sing tonight!
PEGGY:
When Mister Right comes along
Ev'ry melody that sound is so wrong
We'll be blended in a beautiful song
When Mister Ri-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-ght--
ALL:
Ma, she's wonderful!
PEGGY:
Comes along!
HE:
You're terrific, just amazing
What a talent, it's astounding,
You should be star in a Broadway show--
SHE:
Yes, I know,
But got tired, tired of waiting
Tired of hacking those auditions
It's started starving
So I think it what's the use--
By the way what do you do?
HE:
You won't believe it.
SHE:
Try me!
HE:
I produce.
[TINKLE]
PEGGY:
I am feeling aces high
And it's because of you that
I am feeling aces high
CHORUS:
Aces high
PEGGY:
We're a King and a Queen in the heavens
No longer at sixes and sevens
But eights!
CHORUS:
Now that she's found out
She's finally his
PEGGY:
Say!
CHORUS:
She is the happiest, happiest lady there is.
PEGGY:
ACES HI-I-I-I-I-I-GH
CHORUS:
OH OH OH OH
Aces High!
HE:
Now it's happened,
Now you've made it,
By tomorrow you'll be famous--
PEGGY:
Famous...
HE:
You'll discover all New York is at your feet--
PEGGY:
My feet!
HE:
You'll have a brilliant career
Think champagne instead of pretzels and beer--
PEGGY:
And you'll be with me ev'rywhere I appear--
HE:
NO!
PEGGY:
No?
HE:
No, I've done ev'rything for you I could possibly do.
You don't need me anymore. And if I stayed, why I'd
be Mister Peggy Smith? I fear, I couldn't bear that--
PEGGY:
But--
HE:
Goodbye, my dear...
PEGGY:
Donald!
Donald!
Donald!
M.C.:
Our Guest of Honor is Broadway's dearest and most
luminous light, in her own time a legend, a myth,
Ladies and Gentlemen, Miss Peggy Smith.
PEGGY:
What a night I won't forget. I'm just a theater usherette
and who'd have dreamed that someday this would all come
true? Would you? But there's a man, one certain man, who
helped me when it all began, and he's the one who really own
this honor tonight...but he is not here...
HE:
Peggy!
PEGGY:
I wish he were here!
HE:
Peggy!
Peggy!
I can't believe it!
HE:
Peggy!
Peggy!
PEGGY!
PEGGY:
Now my life is like a beautiful song,
My Mister Ri-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i--
Are only for the stars hmm-hmm-hmm
Not in the stars for me.
DONALD:
Pst! Pst!
Pardon me, miss,
I've a problem,
And I wonder
Could you help me
Lost my glove and
I could use your light?
PEGGY:
Right!
Uh, yeah!
Well, I guess you're a big Broadway producer, uh!
DONALD:
As a matter of fact I am, how did you know that?
PEGGY:
Oooh!
Girls! Girls!
GIRLS!
GIRLS:
Happy endings
PEGGY:
All around me
GIRLS:
Happy endings
PEGGY:
All I see are
GIRLS:
Happy endings on a silver screen
Lovely lady
PEGGY:
Gallant fellow
GIRLS:
Meet one evening
PEGGY:
Hear that cello
GIRLS:
Troubles come between
PEGGY:
But in that final scene
Count on a--
GIRLS:
Happy ending by a river
Happy ending on a mountain
Happy ending--
PEGGY:
In a Broadway show!
ALL:
Aah-ah-ah-oh-oh-oh-oh!
PEGGY:
Happy endings far as I can see
ALL:
Ah-ah-oh-oh-oh!
PEGGY:
Are not reserved for the stars--
ALL:
No, no, no, no, no--
PEGGY:
They're in the stars for ME!
