Egg, Nest and Tree Lyrics


by . From Seussical.


SOUR KANGAROO
Up out of the jungle
Up into the sky.
Up over the mountains

BIRD GIRLS, WICKERSHAMS & SOUR KANGAROO
Ten thousand feet high.

SOUR KANGAROO & BIRD GIRLS
Then down from the mountains

BIRD GIRLS & WICKERSHAMS & SOUR KANGAROO
And down to the sea

ALL (EXCEPT HORTON)
Went Horton the elephant
Egg, nest and tree.

WOMEN
Egg, nest and tree!

MEN
Egg, nest and tree!

ALL (EXCEPT HORTON)
They loaded the wagon
Right onto a ship.
Out over the ocean
And ooh, what a trip!
Rolling and tossing
And sick as could be!

(HORTON throws up on one of the HUNTERS, who reacts!)

HORTON
Blaaggghh!

ALL
Just a seasick elephant
Egg, nest and tree.

"VOCALLY LOW" MEN
Nest and tree

ALL
Egg, nest and tree...

"VOCALLY LOW" MEN
Nest and tree

BIRD GIRL #1
After bobbing around for two weeks like a cork.

ALL (EXCEPT HORTON)
Egg, nest and tree!

BIRD GIRL #2
They landed at last
In the town of New York.

ALL (EXCEPT CAT IN THE HAT & HORTON)
Egg, nest and tree!

BIRD GIRL #3
He was wet. he was tired.
And hungry and cold.

ALL (EXCEPT HORTON)
Egg, nest and tree!

BIRD GIRLS
Then, Horton was taken to auction...

(The CAT appears as a very proper, elegant auctioneer)

CAT AS AUCTIONEER
Good evening ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to Seusseby's.
Our first item up for bid this evening is lot 39,
A pendulous pachyderm on egg, nest and tree.
The bidding will begin at ten thousand dollars. Do I hear ten, ten thousand?

(NOTE: Another "free" improvisational area for
THE CAT to invite audience participation in the auction.)

CAT AS AUCTIONEER
Going once, going twice...

(The CAT bangs his gavel)

Sold...to the man with the sideburns and the greasy black mustache.
Oh, excuse me, Madame! Sold...to the man from the circus!

ALL (EXCEPT CAT & HORTON)
Sold ...
Sold ...
Sold ...
Egg, nest and tree.

(ALL exit mournfully, as HORTON is carried off. And suddenly,
THE CAT is transformed into the man from the circus
McGURKUS himself. Circus music begins)
