Happy Endings
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!
