Amelie the Musical - A Better Haircut Lyrics

"A Better Haircut" is a song from Amelie performed by Maria-Christina Oliveras (Gina), Harriet D. Foy (Suzanne), Alyse Alan Louis (Georgette) and Adam Chanler-Berat (Nino).

SUZANNE:
I was working in the circus, with my boyfriend
I was flipping from a high trapeez
I'd fly off and he'd always catch me
Everything was going perfect in the circus,
until the day he dropped me and then
dropped me for the tattooed lady

GINA & GEORGETTE:
She broke her leg in seven places

SUZANNE (spoken):
I did

GINA & GEORGETTE:
Watched the tattooed lady take her place

SUZANNE:
And lost my job, lost my way, 'till at last I bought this cafe

ALL:
And it seems that every single guy that I know,
has another lady on the side show

GEORGETTE:
You know our girls a fragile egg

GINA:
Don't you break her heart

SUZANNE:
Or break her leg

ALL:
Don't you

GINA:
I met a plumber on the Metro,
with a tool belt, he was kinda bald,
but good in bed and fixed my leaky radiator

GEORGETTE:
So you go out on a first date,
then its too late when you try to leave

GINA & GEORGETTE:
The jealousy and crazy stalking all come later

GEORGETTE:
Don't you treat her like a tape recorder

GINA:
She's not a waitress who will take your order

GINA & GEORGETTE:
Bring your food or fill your refills

SUZANNE:
Except when working at the Windmills

GINA & GEORGETTE:
It seems that every single guy that strolls by
doesn't stop until her controls my
every thought, every move,

GEORGETTE:
Are you just the same?

GINA:
Can you prove?

ALL:
That you,
you are a lover for the ages
can you prove that you

GEORGETTE:
you-u-u-u, are not highly contagious

ALL:
Oh yes

GEORGETTE:
Love is just another diagnosis
like bacterial vaginosis

GINA & SUZANNE:
Once you're in it you're committed

GEORGETTE:
To everything you've transmitted

ALL:
If you're gonna be the guy to date her,
give her space and don't suffocate her.
You may  make 'em stop and stare but,
you could use a better haircut

GINA AND SUZANNE (UNDER GEORGETTE)
You
Might be a lover for the ages
But can you prove that you-hoo-hoo-hoo
Are not highly contagious

GEORGETTE (above the other two)
Love is just another diagnosis
Like chicken pox, swine flu, streptococcus,
Walking pneumonia, mumps, herpes, hepatitis,
Syphilis, tetanus, human papillomavirus.

But the mother of all diseases
That brings the mightiest to their knees is
Love, love, love.

ALL
Oh yah

NINO
There are no promises that i can give you.
There's no guarantee that we will live to eighty
Without breaking up or making each other miserable.
But, you know, i think she understands me
I don't know why she would.
I understand she may not even feel the same.
I love her and i don't know her name.

GEORGETTE (spoken)
Here is her number and address. amélie poulain.
She's probably waiting for you at her home.
There you go. all good now. enjoy.

ALL
All the while while love infects us
The  side effect is that love connects us.
All good now. there you go.
Woah
Yah!
