Notice Me, Horton

 
Seussical Soundtrack Musical, 2001
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Notice Me, Horton GERTRUDE
It's taken all my courage to approach you
Not to mention all my stamina to follow you
Across the hills and deserts.
But I feel as if I'm ready
To confess to you the feelings
That I've hidden with great diligence and labor...
Behind the fa├žade
Of your odd little next-door neighbor.

My eyes are too small.
I have very large feet.
And I'm not very proud of my pitiful tweet
But I've now got a tail
That is something to see...

HORTON
One hundred and two. One hundred and three.

GERTRUDE
Oh, notice me, Horton, feather by feather.
This is your next-door neighbor calling!
Notice me, Horton.
Horton, together
We could be great
Oh, notice me, Horton
Put down the clover!
This is your next door neighbor calling.
There's a new leaf
Your neighbor's turned over

HORTON
Over and over,
Clover by clover...

GERTRUDE, HORTON
I was just a no one only yesterday.
You showed up and showed me something more.
Now I've become a someone
Who has someone to believe in
And to be there for...

(HORTON continues his search)

GERTRUDE
(Quietly determined)
I will not give up hope.
I was hooked from the start
When I noticed your kind
And your powerful heart.
So notice me, Horton...

HORTON
Oh, the world would be something new

GERTRUDE
Notice me, Horton

HORTON
If they noticed a thing or two...

GERTRUDE
Notice me, Horton

GERTRUDE, HORTON
The way I notice you.

(The clock ticks as HORTON continues his clover search.
GERTRUDE finally exits in defeat. Time jumps to much later in his search.)

HORTON
Two million, nine hundred and ninety-nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety-nine.
It's hopeless.

MAYZIE
You said it kid.

(For a second, HORTON thinks he's heard the WHOS!)

HORTON
Who's there?

MAYZIE
It's me. Mayzie. Up here.

(HORTON sees MAYZIE sitting on a huge, colorful egg, in a nest, in a tree)

HORTON
Mayzie .. Are you on a nest?

MAYZIE (defensive)
Yeah. You wanna make something of it?

HORTON
No, I just never thought I'd see you on a nest

MAYZIE
Neither did I, Hort...neither did I.

(The CAT as PIANIST rides out on a small,
Seussian piano and plays a musical intro for MAYZIE)
