Oh, The Thinks You Can Think

 
Seussical Soundtrack Musical, 2001
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Oh, The Thinks You Can Think CAT IN THE HAT
I can see that you've got quite a mind for your age!
Why, one Think and you dragged me right onto the stage!
Now, I'm here, there is no telling what may ensue
With a Cat such as me, and a Thinker like you!

(THE CAT begins to "create" the Seussian world of imagination for THE BOY)

Oh, the thinks you can think!
Oh, the thinks you can think
If you're willing to try...

Think invisible ink!
Or a gink with a stink!
Or a stair to the sky...
If you open your mind,
Oh, the thinks you will find
Lining up to get loose...
Oh, the thinks you can think
When you think about...

(The company of "Seussian" characters now enters)

CAT, ALL (except BOY)
Seuss! Seuss!
Seuss! Seuss!
Seuss! Seuss! Seuss! Seuss!
Seuss!

CAT & ALL (except BOY)
Oh, the thinks you can think!
Any thinker who thinks
Can come up with a few!

BOY
Oh, the thinks you can think!

CAT & ALL
Think a trip on a ship
To the Vipper of Vipp

WOMEN
Or to Solla Sollew...

CAT (spoken)
Think of beautiful Schlopp ...

BOY (spoken)
With a cherry on top!

CAT, BOY, ALL
You don't need an excuse!

CAT, BOY (spoken)
Oh, the thinks you can think

CAT, BOY, ALL
When you think about Seuss!
Seuss, Seuss, Seuss,-
Seuss....

HORTON
Think of an elephant up in a tree

MAYOR, MRS. MAYOR
Think of a person too tiny to see!

GERTRUDE
Think of a bird with a one-feather tail

ALL
Going on adventure down a dangerous trail!

MAYZIE
Think a bird who flies off on a spree!

SOUR KANGAROO
Think of a kangaroo, sour as can be!

SCHMITZ
Think of a general crazy for war!

CAT
Think of something horrible and hairy!

CAT, PRINCIPLES (except BOY)
Something sinister and scary

ALL (except BOY)
That you never dared to think of before!

ALL (except CAT & BOY)
Think of nobody here
And the feeling of fear
And the darkness of night
(with menace)
Oooh Oooh...

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

CAT (spoken)
Think a glimmer of light!!

ALL (except BOY)
(with relief)
Aah Aah!

CAT
But I hope you're prepared
To be scareder than scared!

CAT, ALL (except BOY)
'Cause this ain't mother goose!

CAT (spoken)
Think right over the brink!

CAT, ALL (except BOY)
When you think about Seuss!

MEN WOMEN
Seu-u-u-u-u
Seu... Seu...
Seu-u-u-uss Seuss!
Seu-u-u-u-u
Seuss! Seuss! Seuss! Seuss!

CAT
An unusual story will soon be unfurled
Of an elephant trying to save a small world
And a boy from that world who has Thinks just like you!

CAT IN THE HAT, ALL
Just think!

WHOS
From the Planet of Who

BOY
And the smallest of small.

CITIZENS OF THE JUNGLE
To the jungle of Nool,

HORTON
And the largest of all...

GROUP I GROUP 2
You think You think
And think and think and think and think
and think
And think and think and think and think
and think
And think and think and think and think
and think
And think and think and think!
and think!

ALL, BOY
Just think!

ALL
Oh, the thinks you can think
Think and wonder and dream-
Far and wide as you dare!

CAT
Oh, the thinks you can think!

ALL
When your thinks have run dry,
In the blink of an eye
There's another think there!
If you open your mind,
Oh, the thinks you will find
Lining up to get loose!
Oh, the thinks you can think

BARITONES AND BASSES
Oh, the thinks you can think

ALL
Oh, the thinks you can think!

TENORS
Oh, the thinks you can think!

ALL
Oh, the thinks you can think
When you think about Seuss!
When you think about Seuss!
When you think about Seuss!

(The SOUR KANGAROO riffs through the following)

GROUP I GROUP 2 GROUP 3 GROUP 4
Seu-u-u-u Seu ... Seu.. Seuss! Seuss!

Seu-u-u-u Seuss! Seuss! Seuss!
Seu-u-u-uss Seuss!
Seuss! Seuss!
Seu-u-u-u-u Seu ... Seu ... Seuss!

BOY
Seuss!

CAT
Our story begins
With a very strange sound -
The drums of a jungle
Beginning to pound.

(Jungle drums begin.)
CAT
Now, imagine a sky.

BOY
I'll imagine bright blue!

(BOY and CAT create a blue sky and a jungle setting.)

CAT
It's the Jungle of Nool!

BOY
Near the River Walloo!

(The CAT and the BOY watch as the Jungle of Nool is revealed.
The JUNGLE CITIZENS enter, along with the BIRD GIRLS,
a flamboyant "girl group" of the jungle.)
