Seussical Soundtrack Musical, 2001
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Alone In The Universe (Reprise) HORTON
And now, little egg,
You're alone in the universe too.
Who would have thought you'd be left up to me,
A fool of an elephant up in a tree,
Well, this time, I swear I'll do better than try
I'll protect you from harm. Yes, I'll do it or die!
So rest now, young egg,
And I'll sing you a lullaby...
-----------------------------------------------------------------
(Reprise)

HORTON
Do you hear what I hear? Do you see what I mean?
They made themselves heard though they still can't he seen!

GERTRUDE
They've proved they are persons, no matter how small.

HORTON
And their whole world was saved by the small- est of all!

(THE SOUR KANGAROO has a change of heart and is slightly embarrassed)

SOUR KANGAROO
How true! Yes, how true! Said the sour kangaroo.
And, from now on, you know what I'm planning to do?
(with genuine sweetness)
From now on, I'm going to protect them with you!

And the young kangaroo in her pouch said...

SMALL KANGAROO
Me, too!

CAT
Their troubles were ended, they hailed his great..

ALL WHOS, CAT
Yopp!

CAT
And Jojo was honored as "Thinker non-stop".

(The WHOS carry him on their shoulders.)

MR. AND MRS. MAYOR
Now all Jojo's thinks would forever be heard.

CAT
Including this think...

(We hear the sound of a giant egg cracking.
GERTRUDE dashes over to HORTON and they watch as THE EGG hatches.
We can only imagine what they're seeing by the wonder and joy on their faces.)

JOJO, ALL (hushed wonder and amazement)
An elephant bird!

HORTON (very moved)
Why he looks just like me. Except for the wings.

GERTRUDE
And except for the voice, 'cause that's how a bird sings.

HORTON (slow mounting panic)
Gertrude, what will I do? I'm slow and I'm fat
All I know is the earth. He'll need much more than that!

(A beat.)

GERTRUDE (very tentative, very gentle)
I have wings.
Yes, I can fly.
You teach him earth
And I will teach him sky

HORTON
Just call my name

BOTH
And I'll see you through.

HORTON
One small voice in the universe

GERTRUDE
One true friend in the universe

BOTH -
Who believes in you.

(HORTON and GERTRUDE come together over the cradle,
looking down at their little elephant bird.)

CAT
The adventures were over.
The sky became...

JOJO
Pink.

CAT
And then, guess what happened?

JOJO (to audience)
Well, what do you think?!
