Only For Him / Only For You Song Lyrics
Meg: Jesus, what a crowd.
Chorus Girl 1: Nervous?
Meg: Just a bit.
Chorus Girl 2: Kid, look who you are.
Chorus Girl 1: The headline act!
Chorus Girl 2: A major star!
Chorus Girl 1: You're already a hit!
Chorus Girl 2: Got a match?
Meg: Wonder what he'll think.
Chorus Girl 1: The boss?
Meg: If he's even here.
Chorus Girl 2: Honey, please, he's here.
Chorus Girl 1: And in just two days, he'll be there tossing you bouquets
at our gala premiere.
Chorus Girl 2: Picture it!
Chorus Girl 1: The cream of Manhattan!
Chorus Girl 2: Celebrities! Millionaires!
Chorus Girl 1: Watching you!
Meg: I'll be waiting in the wing,
wound up tighter than a spring
as the house begins to dim.
And I'll practice every line
hoping desperately to shine,
shining only for him.
Meg and Chorus Girls:
Just imagine how they'll cheer
at the moment you appear.
Meg: Stepping out before the scrim
let 'em woop and let 'em call
I won't hear the crowd at all
Chorus Girls: No it's only for him.
Meg: Tell me how I look.
Chorus Girl 1: Fine.
Meg: Just fine? What about my hair?
Chorus Girl 2: Beautiful!
Meg: You swear?
Chorus Girl 1: Trust me, when the boss sees how you put that song across
Chorus Girl 2: Hell! He 'aint got a prayer!
Meg: Oh you mean it?
You'll step out into the light
All vitality and veer.
Meg: Aha. And I'll rapturously float through the melody he wrote.
singing only for him.
Meg and Chorus Girls:
And before the music dies,
Up the audience will rise,
Nearly bursting at the brim.
Chorus Girls: And you'll stand there in the glow.
Meg: And, perhaps, at last he'll know.
Chorus Girl 1: Girls! Hurry up, we're on!
Man 1: Where is she?
Man 2: Look!
Man 1: Just like in the posters!
Man 3: There!
Man 2: The Ooh-La-La Girl!
Onlookers: Meg Giry!
Meg: Welcome, each and every one,
to our imperilment of fun!
Chorus: And buffet of Bali Hoo!
It's where Coney comes to play,
And it's opening today.
Meg: And it's only for you!
Chorus: And you!
Entertainment day and night,
Sure to dazzle and delight!
Meg: And, of course, we'll be there too!
Chorus: We're so happy that you're here,
for this seasons big premier.
And it's only for you!
