Characters singing


Tyrone: I've gotta go. I've gotta fly!
Later, ta-ta, see you, bye-bye!

Uniqua: I'll make a feast!

Austin: I'll huff and puff!

Tyrone: I'm movin' on. I've had enough!

It's been swell, and it's been great,
But you won't get me on your plate!

I'm glad you're pleased to meet me,
But this is no way to greet me!
Why, why, oh, why...
Does everyone wanna eat me?

Pablo: Oh, please don't go! Why can't you stay?

Uniqua: One hour more, don't go away!

Austin: Don't travel west or to the east...

Pablo: Just stay right here and join our feast!

Tyrone: It's been grand, and it's been real,
But I will not be your next meal!

I can't let them defeat me,
Swindle, trick, or cheat me!
Why, why, oh why...
Does everyone wanna eat me?

Austin, Uniqua, and Pablo: A paperboy should never leave
'Til he's emptied out his sack!

Tyrone: They're right, I know, but I've gotta go,
And I'm never comin' back...

Austin: Hey, there! Don't go, don't run, just sit!

Tyrone: I'm through, I'm done, enough, that's it!

Uniqua: Oh no, he's gone, he's quick, he's fast!

Tyrone: I'm out, I'm safe, I'm free at last!

It was fun, a hoot, a ball,
But I must go...
Oh no, a wall!

I'm trapped, and so they beat me!
What an awful way to treat me!
Why, why, oh, why...
Does everyone... want... to eat me?
