Biggest Blame Fool

 
Seussical Soundtrack Musical, 2001
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Biggest Blame Fool SOUR KANGAROO
Humpf! ... Humpfed a voice.
'Twas a sour kangaroo,
And the young kangaroo in her pouch said:

YOUNG KANGAROO
"Humpf"

SOUR KANGAROO
Too!

SOUR KANGAROO
Why that speck is as small as the head of a pin.
A person on that? Why there never has been!
(She laughs derisively)
You're the biggest blame fool in the Jungle of Nool
And I don't care who I tell. The biggest blame fool in the Jungle of Nool,

YOUNG KANGAROO
And I think so as well!

SOUR KANGAROO
Maybe I'm nasty, maybe I'm cruel
But you're the biggest blame fool

YOUNG KANGAROO
In the Jungle of Nool.

HORTON
It's true. Please believe me! I tell you sincerely
My ears are quite keen and I heard him quite clearly
I know there's a person down there. And what's more,
Quite likely there's two.
Even three.
Even four!

(The WICKERSHAM BROTHERS enter - a trio of monkeys up to mischief)

WICKERSHAM #2
Ha! Laughed a voice!

WICKERSHAM #1,3
Ha! Laughed some others!

WICKERSHAMS
Ha! Ha! Ha! Laughed the Wickersham brothers!

(They dance with glee.)

Oh, he's the biggest blame fool
In the Jungle of Nool
And monkeys like us should know.

SOUR KANGAROO
No, no, no, no!

WICKERSHAMS
We've been out on a limb
Lookin' down on him-

WICKERSHAM #1
And he's fat!

WICKERSHAM #2
He's dumb!

WICKERSHAM #3
He's slow!

SOUR KANGAROO
Uh huh!

SOUR KANGAROO & WICKERSHAMS
Elephants ain't too swift as a rule
But he's the biggest blame fool in the Jungle of Nool.
'Cause he's talkin' to a speck - talkin' to a speck -
To a speck of dust

WICKERSHAM #3
Blame fool in the Jungle of Nool

WICKERSHAMS & BIRD GIRLS & SOUR KANGAROO
Talkin' to a speck
Talkin' to a speck -
To a speck of dust!

SOUR KANGAROO

Through the jungle, the news quickly flew.

BIRD GIRLS
He talks to a dust speck!
It's on Channel Two!

(THE BOY instantly envisions the whole scene on TV.
THE CAT IN THE HAT now plays a TALK SHOW HOST of the "sympathetic" variety,
a la Sally Jesse Raphael, microphone in hand.)

CAT (as TALK SHOW HOST)
Our topic today is "Psychic elephants who hear voices.'
Whaddaya think, folks...
Is the elephant off his trunk?
We'll he right back with "speck", "clover", "dust", "neighbor", 'who'....

(CAT holds the microphone to the clover for a beat)

Nothing! Stay tuned - we'll be right back!

(The CAT now interviews GERTRUDE MCFUZZ, a plain bird with a one-feather tail)

ALL

GERTRUDE
I'm Gertrude McFuzz, and I live right next door.
He's never done anything crazy before.

ALL

He's always been friendly and loyal and kind.
I just don't believe Horton's out of his mind!

ALL
Did you hear? Did you hear?

(The glamorous and flamboyant MAYZIE LA BIRD is now interviewed)

MAYZIE
I'm Mayzie La Bird
And I live in that tree.

ALL
Did you hear? Did you hear? Did you, did you hear?

MAYZIE
Enough about Horton. Let's talk about me!

MAYZIE, BIRD GIRLS

CITIZENS OF THE JUNGLE

(GERTRUDE remains behind for one moment, looking at HORTON longingly.)

GERTRUDE
On the fifteenth of May, Miss Gertrude McFuzz
Discovered how truly unique Horton Was.
But she knew to approach him
Would probably fail,
'Cause who'd notice a bird
With a one feather tail?

(GERTRUDE exits dejectedly. HORTON is alone with the speck. He listens closely.)

MAYOR (Offstage, tiny and distant)
Help! Help!

CAT
Then the voice came again.
Calling over and over...

MAYOR (Offstage, tiny and distant)
Help! Help!

CAT
So he tried to think
Who might be down on that clover.

HORTON
Hello? Is anyone there?

(MR. and MRS. MAYOR are revealed.)

Who are you?
