One Plus One Equals Three

 
Side Show Soundtrack Musical, 1997
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

One Plus One Equals Three Buddy:
I never sought the spotlight
I stayed behind the scenes
But then I met a sweetheart
Who changed my old routines
She put me in the spotlight
Now I'm a happy pup
And when I count my blessings
I find they all add up to
One plus one equals three
My baby, her sister and me
This is not what I expected
But my baby is well-connected
You can see why I elected
This arithmetic with an odd key
Where one plus one equals three
Some guys wonder how it'll work
Some women titter and smirk
All their questions will be resolved
I've got the problem solved
'Cause one plus one
One plus one
One plus one

Daisy & Violet:
We've always been a duo

Daisy:
A twosome who's compact

Daisy & Violet:
But we're happy to welcome

Violet:
An addition to our act

Daisy:
He's Violet's intended

Buddy:
I'm the lucky one

Violet:
I'm the one who's lucky

Buddy, Daisy, Violet:
Ain't we having fun

Buddy:
We're planning a big wedding
For each and every friend
Consider this your invitation

Daisy & Violet:
Hope you will attend

Buddy, Daisy, Violet:
Big day will be coming up soon
Big wedding

Buddy & Violet:
Small honeymoon

Buddy, Daisy, Violet:
For the moment
We thought we'd do
This preview just for you

Vale Sisters:
Ooo-ooo-ooo
Ooo-ooo-ooo
Ooo-ooo-ooo

Daisy, Violet, Vale Sisters:
Hey there, professor
Won't you answer, yes sir
How's about a lesson in your new kind of math

Buddy:
Well, one plus one equals

Daisy, Violet, Vale Sisters:
That's gonna be
Gonna be three

Violet:
His baby

Daisy:
Her sister

Buddy:
And don't forget me

Vale Sisters:
With a little persuasion
How hap-hap-hap-hap-happy we'll be
When one plus one

Daisy, Violet, Vale Sisters:
Plus one

Buddy:
One plus one

Daisy, Violet, Vale Sisters:
What fun

Buddy:
One plus one
Means my baby

Violet:
I'm his baby

Vale Sisters:
His baby

Buddy:
Her sister

Daisy:
I'm his baby's sister

Vale Sisters:
His baby's sister and

Buddy:
And me

Vale Sisters:
That equals

Violet:
And me

Vale Sisters:
That equals

Daisy:
And me

Vale Sisters:
That equals

Buddy, Daisy, Violet, Vale Sisters:
Equals three

The song ends, and everyone gets ready to leave...

Violet:
Buddy, you're a wonderful performer
You've become the star I knew you'd be

Buddy:
You give me confidence out there

Violet:
You get so nervous before the show
You remind me of me

Terry:
Good work, everyone!
Now I am expecting a phone call up in the office
And then I'm taking us all to dinner.

Buddy:
I'll come with you.

Buddy and Terry leave...

Violet:
Before long you'll be getting married,
And I'll be the bridesmaid.

Daisy:
Don't hold your breath.
I'm not feeling well, I want to go home.

Violet:
Anything I can do?

Daisy:
I don't think so.

Violet:
Jake, could you tell Terry and Buddy to go ahead without us?
We'll wait here for you.

Jake goes to tell Terry and Buddy, but overhears their conversation...

Buddy:
I need to talk to you.

Terry:
Is something wrong?

Buddy:
I'm worried about Daisy
The questions people ask
She's bound to feel left out

Terry:
She's getting more attention then ever

Buddy:
But Violet's the focus

Terry:
They're used to sharing

Buddy:
But how about that double wedding?

Terry:
Will you stop with that?
I could never marry a Siamese twin

Buddy:
I don't see her as a Siamese twin
I got over that long ago

Terry:
You're a better man than I

Buddy:
Now I'm making her dream come true
And that makes me happy

Terry:
Not to mention famous

Buddy:
An unexpected benefit
Which I admit, I really like

Terry:
You know, she really loves you

Buddy:
And I love her

Terry:
Is it love
Or pity?
Whatever your reason for proposing, there is a lot riding on this wedding.
And nothing's gonna stop it.
Not Daisy, not Violet, not you.

Buddy:
This is my chance to do something important
To be remembered
To make a big splash

Terry:
Then I'm depending on you to keep this on track
Keep playing your part
Keep Violet content
Keep the happy couple happy

Buddy:
That's not a problem
But Daisy could be

Terry:
I'll take care of her

Buddy:
On the honeymoon?

Terry leaves...

Buddy:
You act like you know what's behind every door
I only hope that I'm not getting more
Than I bargained for

Daisy and Violet wait for Jake to return...

Violet:
Oh, Daisy, how can I make this easier for you?

Daisy:
You can't
I can barely get through the songs
How will I get through your wedding?
Or honeymoon?

Violet:
You will close a door inside

Daisy:
I can't
When Buddy holds your hand
I tingle all over
When he pecks you on the cheek
I feel it on mine

Violet:
We have always learned to adjust
We can learn

Daisy:
You're the bride
You'll be preoccupied

Violet:
If I were you

Daisy:
You're not

Violet:
You're just jealous

Daisy:
Of course I am

Jake enters...

Jake:
There's nothing to be jealous about

Violet:
What do you mean?

Jake:
Don't go through with this wedding

Violet:
Jake, what's gotten into you?

Jake:
I feel things
I know things

Violet:
So do I
Buddy will make me happy

Jake:
I want your happiness more than anything
But I don't trust this

Violet:
What do you know about it?

Jake:
I know plenty
I know how someone should love you

Violet:
And how is that?
