Havin' A Hunch

 
Seussical Soundtrack Musical, 2001
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Havin' A Hunch SCARY VOICES (Offstage)
Ooh! Wah-ooh-wah!
Ooh! Wah-ooh-wah!

CAT
Have you ever had a hunch
You should follow your nose?
Then you have a sudden hunch
You should follow your toes?
Soon a sneaky hunch is whispering
Better go straight!
And before you know it
Oh, it's so late late late late!

SCARY VOICES (Echoing)
Late late late late!

CAT
Now a nervous hunch is telling you
You could be lost!

SCARY VOICES (Echoing)
Lost lost lost lost...

CAT
As it leads you down a path
You have already crossed.


SCARY VOICES (Echoing)
Crossed, crossed, crossed, crossed!

CAT
Soon you're overwhelmed by hunches
That pester and pinch and punch!
And you know you're havin' a hunch!

(The mysterious HUNCHES enter)

HUNCHES
You're havin', you're havin' a hunch!

CAT
A hunch!

HUNCHES
You're havin' a hunch!

HUNCHES
You're havin', you're havin' a hunch!
You're havin' a hunch!

(A DREAM nightmare ensues, in which all kinds of strange
Seussian creatures and events challenge and scare JOJO.)

HUNCHES
Ooh! Ah!

HUNCHES, CAT
Hunch!

HUNCHES
Ooh! Ah!

HUNCHES, CAT
Hunch!

HUNCHES
Ooh! Ah! Hunch!
Ooh! Ah! Hunch!

(At the height of his fright and confusion, JOJO confronts THE CAT.)
JOJO
You're nothing but trouble! Just trouble galore!
You flooded my house, sent me marching to war.
Filled my head full of Thinks!
And you won't go away!

CAT
All right. I'll be going.
But first, let me say...

JOJO
No!

CAT
Think of nobody here
And the feeling of fear
And the darkness of night

HUNCHES
Ooh Ooh...

ALL, CAT
All alone in the gloom
As you're facing your doom

CAT
Think a glimmer of light!

(THE CAT turns on a light, and the HUNCHES are revealed as just a bunch of actors in costume.
They're a little sheepish to be caught in the act. JOJO is amazed and relieved.)

JOJO
You mean, that's it?

CAT
That's it. It's all in your mind.
You're a Thinker, JoJo.
Tried and true.
I don't often meet real Thinkers like you.

JOJO
I want to go home.

CAT
What, that's easy to do!
Just follow your Hunches.
They'll lead you home to Who.

Think a bridge to the shore
And a road to your door.
You'll be home before lunch!

JOJO
Oh, the places I'll go
If I follow my...

JOJO, HUNCHES
Hunch!

HUNCHES, CAT
Follow your Hunch!

(The HUNCHES and CAT now help JOJO to find his way home)

And oh!
The places you'll go!

JOJO
I've got brains in my head
And feet in my shoes

ALL (EXCEPT JOJO)
So steer yourself any direction you choose!

And oh, the places you'll go!
Set your hunches free to wander
And follow them where they roam

HUNCHES, CAT
And follow your hunch
Follow your hunch
Follow it...

Follow your hunch
Follow your hunch
Follow it .. .

Follow your hunch
Follow your hunch
Follow it

(The CAT and JOJO'S HUNCHES magically deliver JOJO home to his PARENTS.)

HUNCHES, OFFSTAGE VOICES
Home ...

(Parents and son embrace joyfully)

ALL
Anything's possible!

(In the darkness, we see a figure carrying a flashlight.
Its light reveals GERTRUDE McFUZZ)

GERTRUDE
I'll bet you forgot about Gertrude McFuzz
Well, that's nothing new. I mean, everyone does.
But Gertrude did something that few birds could do.
So this is the Tale of Miss Gertrude. Part Two.

(GERTRUDE's flashlight picks out the poster for the Circus McGurkus.
We hear the sounds of snoring)

Psst! Horton! Horton!

HORTON
What is it? Who's there?

GERTRUDE
It's me, Gertrude! Horton! OH, Horton! I was so worried Are you all right?

HORTON
Gertrude! How did you find us?

GERTRUDE
Well, it's a long story
