Seussical Soundtrack Musical, 2001
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

It's Possible (In McElligot's Pool) JOJO
This might be a pool,
Like I've read of in books,
Connected to one of those underground brooks!
An underground river
That starts here and flows
Right under this bathtub!
And then-
Who knows!

It's possible!
Anything's possible!

JOJO, CAT
It's possible!
Anything's possible!

(JOJO's imagination starts to expand.)

JOJO
It might go along,
Down where no one can see
Right under state highway
Two hundred and three!
Right under the wagons!
Right under the toes
Of Mrs. Umbroso! ...
Who's hanging out clothes!

It's possible!
Anything's possible.

JOJO, CAT
It's possible!
Anything's possible!

JOJO
This might be a river
Now mightn't it be,
Connecting McElligot's Pool with the sea!
Then maybe some fish might be swimming...
Swimming toward me!

(We are suddenly underwater.
Strange fish appear - all shapes and sizes, wildly-coloured and wildly improbable.
The FISH dance and swoop through the water in a "water ballet" with JOJO)

FISH FALSETTO GROUP
Ah! Oo-wee-ee-ee-ee-ooh!
It's possible!
It's possible...
Ah! Oo-wee-ee-ee-ee-ooh!
It's possible
It's possible...
Ah!

JOJO FISH
Oh, the sea is so full Ooh ... Wah-ooh ...
Of a number of fish
If a fellow is patient Ooh ... Wah-ooh ...
He might get his wish!
And that's why I think Ooh ... Wah-ooh ...
That I'm not such a fool
When I sit here and fish When I sit here and fish
In McElligot's pool!

It's possible. It's possible
It's possible
Anything's
Possible. Possible.

It's possible. It's possible
It's possible
Anything's
Possible. Possible.

It's possible...
Anything...
Anything...

(JOJO's parents abruptly interrupt his fantasy.)

MR. MAYOR
Jojo! The tub's overflowed on the floor!
The water is running right under the door!

MRS. MAYOR
The ceiling is peeling! You've flooded the den!
Oh, JoJo, I think you've been Thinking again!

MR. MAYOR
I say this with firmness and terrible sorrow,
Young man, we will deal with you come tomorrow!

(MR. and MRS. MAYOR exit)

JOJO
I still think
That I'm not such a fool
When I sit here and fish
In McElligot's pool!

CAT
It's possible.

(The FISH magically re-appear)

JOJO, CAT & FISH
Anything's ...
Possible!

(Lights out on JOJO, as JOJO's PARENTS appear.)
