Mayzie In Palm Beach

 
Seussical Soundtrack Musical, 2001
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Mayzie In Palm Beach MAYZIE
When you're down in Palm Beach
With the breeze in your hair
And you don't have an egg
Or a nest or a care,
Tell yourself how lucky you are.

CAT (AS JOSE THE POOLBOY or RENEE THE BEAUTICIAN)
How lucky, how lucky you are.

MAYZIE
When it's day after day
After beautiful day
To be lazing away
By the sea with Jose (Renee),
Tell yourself how lucky you are.

CAT (AS JOSE THE POOLBOY or RENEE THE BEAUTICIAN)
How lucky you are!

MAYZIE
Still, I'm bored and I'm cranky and tired
Sitting day after day.
Who knew so much work was required
For nothing but play.
I need something diff'rent!
I crave something new!
(She grabs the CAT)
Hey, maybe could you think of something diff'rent to do?!

(In self-defense, he hands her a flyer.)

MAYZIE AT THE CIRCUS

MAYZIE
A circus!
I love a show!
I think I'll go!

(MAYZIE exits as the circus enters.
SHE re-enters with souvenirs and cotton candy.
We see the circus animals, now in their cages.
Suddenly, she is face-to-face with HORTON.)

MAYZIE
Good gracious! I've seen you before- now, let's see.

HORTON
Why Mayzie, it's Horton! Remember? Its me!
I've sat on your egg now for fifty-one weeks!
I've sat here while people have paid to take peeks!
I've sat here through lightning and hail storms and snow!
Won't you take back your egg?

MAYZIE
Gee. I really don't know...

AMAYZING HORTON

MAYZIE
Oh, wow, it's really late!
And gee, I've got a date!
And lots of places to be.
But it's so great to see you!

Look at you!
Who would ever guess?
Look at you!
Such a big success...
And it's all thanks to me!

Amayzing Horton!
That egg-sitting circus sensation!
Amayzing Horton!
Even I'm impressed!
Amayzing Horton!
While I was off taking vacation

MAYZIE
You made your fortune
Up on Mayzie's nest...

I may be
Unreliable.
Fancy free.
Irresponsible.
Crazy me,
Always eager to fly.

But seeing you
Gives me true delight
Just this once
I've done something right.

The egg is all yours!
No, don't thank me,
I'll cry!

(Just for a moment, MAYZIE is actually sincere and even a little contrite.)

Good luck when it hatches.
Good luck...
And goodbye.

(MAYZIE exits hastily. The other animals look at HORTON
with sympathy as he holds the unwieldy egg in his arms)

HORTON
I meant what I said,
And I said what I meant
An elephant's faithful,
One hundred percent
