Let Me Drown BURRS
And now, ladies and gentlemen,
The moment you've all been waiting for:
The clown takes the center ring!

I've changed my mind
Let the evening rage ahead
By tomorrow morning we could be dead drunk
Or just dead.

If she won't talk to me I've plenty else to do
I'll talk to you
And you and you and you and
I think we're due for a :
I think we're due for a :
I think we're due for a :

You think I'm headed for disaster
You think I'm going up in flames
You wanna break my fall
You wanna stop them all from calling me names.

You'd like to chain me down in irons
You'd like to give me your support
But when you se me stand
Martini glass in hand
The rescue you've got planned
Must be aborted.

Let me drown, this evening,
Let me drown
If I'm blue, let me truly play the clown
Let me sail
Let me sink
Let me teeter on the brink
Let me drown, drown, drown, drown, drown.

You'd like to see me at confession
You hope I learn from my mistakes
You wanna save my soul
But when I'm on a roll,
Lay off of the brakes

You think that when I meet my maker
(Hello, Maker!)
That cat'll be all dressed in red
But every morn I pray
That on that lucky day
I'll hear that devil say
"Son, pour it steady!"

BURRS KATE & MEN
And let me drown, this evening,
Let me drown
Whoa, let me drown!
If I'm low, let slowly paint the town
Go, grab a dollah
And follah me!
When they ask for the roof
Let me answer "Hundred Proof!"

Let me drown, drown, drown, drown, drown.
Drown, drown, drown, drown, drown.
Let me drown in females foreign
Let me dangle from a limb Ooooh...
Teach me how to put my oar in
But don't you dare to teach me
How to swim!

KATE ENSEMBLE
Let me drown, this evening, let me drown Let me drown!
If you smile
For a while
I'll wear the frown Go slap that happy face


BURRS
Let me go
Set me free I wanna run now

Let me at that S.O.B. KATE
No!

BURRS & ENSEMBLE
Let me drown, drown, drown, drown, drown
Let me drown, till daybreak,
Let me drown

BURRS ENSEMBLE
I'm the guy
Guy!
Who will buy
Her wedding gown
Here comes the bride.
BURRS & MEN
Till the dawn
Breaks the spell
All the world
Can got to hell
KATE & WOMEN
Now, where is my bible?
Strap me in
Let me ride
Till I'm on the other side
Take me to the other side
Let me rock
Let me roll Let me roll

BURRS
Let me sacrifice my soul

BURRS, KATE & ENSEMBLE
Let me drown,
Let me drown!

(Queenie and Black find a quiet corner.)
