Normandy Lyrics


by Once Upon A Mattress Cast. From Once Upon A Mattress.


Larken:
I must go!
Jester:
Lady Larken, you know the queen would never permit one of her ladies in waiting to leave the castle by herself
Larken: God knows I'm a lady in waiting
Minstrel:
Beyond the wall which you must climb
Larken:
Climb?
Minstrel:
It's twenty two feet and covered with slime
Larken:
Slime?
Minstrel:
Infested with spiders
Larken:
Spiders?
Minstrel:
Oh the spiders are sweet compared to the snakes
Larken:
Snakes?!
Minstrel:
On the other side
Jester:
Well they won't hurt you. Unless, of course, if you insist on leaving alone and now
Larken:
Well I did. But if I'd known it was so terrible out there
Minstrel:
Then you'd think a second thought and come with me. I know all the secret ways to set you free. Over the hills and to the
open sea.
Larken:
Open sea. But where?
Minstrel:
Normandy
Larken:
Normandy? But why?
Jester:
Because it's out of the castle, out of the country, and safe where no one knows you.
Larken:
Safe
Minstrel:
And besides
Minstrel & Jester:
Normandy
Is fine and fair. So Normandy is where we'll go
Minstrel:
I can show you a beach where the peach blossom blows
Jester:
And I know how to reach, a man who knows
Both:
A man who knows a cozy inn
Minstrel:
A friendly place
Both:
With rows of windows facing the sea!
This time of year the air I hear is rare and clear and warm, in Normandy!
Minstrel:
I know a meadow covered with mustard flowers, golden as the sun
Jester:
Where a wondrous thing can happen when an April day is done.
Minstrel:
There's a moment after the twilight
Both:
When the sky is suddenly green
And the world stands hushed and waiting for the first white stars to convene.
Minstrel:
When you see that em'rald sky (Jseter: you see that em'rald sky)
You'll know the reason why (and know the reason why)
There's not another place I'd rather be
Both:
Keep your El Dorado!
And to Hell with Burgundy!
Come fly with me!
Come try those wings,
Come swift for we have things to do
Larken:
Is there truly a beach where the peach blossom blows?
Are you sure you can reach, that man who know, that man who knows that cozy inn...
Minstrel:
There's Jessamine and...
Larken:
...That friendly place...
Jester:
White Lilace Lace and
All three:
...Rows of windows facing the sea!
This time of year the air, I hear, is rare and clear...
Larken:
...And warm
Minstrel & Jester:
Don't be afraid...
Larken:
It's warm...
Minstrel & Jester:
Heaven was made...
All three:
...In Normandy!
Jester:
In Normandy!
Minstrel:
In Normandy!
Larken: In Normandy!
All three:
In Normandy!
