SONG: “Wait Must I Wait

                                   

WAIT? MUST I WAIT

AS THE MINUTES GO BY?

ENDLESS DAYS

FILL WITH GREYS.

WHEN IS MY CHANCE TO DANCE UNDER THE SKY?

 

STOP ALL THIS WAITING,           

THESE DAYS NEVER FLY.

WILL THE YEARS

TURN TO TEARS?

WHEN IS MY CHANCE TO DANCE ’TIL STARS FILL THE SKY?

 

IS SOMEONE OUT THERE?                                 

IS HE WAITING IN THE NIGHT?                        

IS SOMEONE TO CARE?                

WILL HE DANCE INTO THE LIGHT?                              

IS THERE A CHANCE                                           

    THAT WE’LL DANCE

        ’TIL THE MORNING BRIGHT?

 

• • • •     

                

         (Eldora rejects another suitor)

                   

     Eldora

WAIT? MUST I WAIT?                                           

AS THE HOURS PASS BY

DAYS WON’T END.

TIME’S NO FRIEND.

WHEN IS MY CHANCE TO DANCE BELOW MOONLIT SKY?

                                                                                             

DAY AND NIGHT

SHADOWS AND LIGHT

PASSING ME BY,

WHEN WILL MY HEART FLY?                

 

     Courtiers                        

       (musically different)

SHE’S OFF BY HERSELF.

HER NOSE IN THE AIR.

PRINCESS ON A SHELF.

SHE REFUSES TO PAIR.

SHE’S WAITING TO MARRY.

IGNORES ALL THE HINTS.

EVERY TOM, DICK AND HARRY

IS NOT ENOUGH PRINCE.

 

     [Eldora rejects yet another princely suitor]

 

     Eldora

NOW END THIS WAITING             [resume tempo]

LET SOMEONE COME BY.

DO YOUR PART,

TOUCH MY HEART.

GIVE ME A CHANCE TO DANCE ’TIL THE SUN RISES HIGH.

 

IS HE SOMEONE FAR AWAY                              

OR SOMEONE I KNOW?                

WILL HE BANTER AND PLAY                            

OR ROMANCE LIKE ROMEO?                            

IS THERE A CHANCE                                           

     THAT WE’LL DANCE

             AS THE YEARS COME AND GO?    

 

I’M WONDERING IF,

I’M WONDERING WHO,

I’M WONDERING, WONDERING.

HOW I WISH I KNEW.
