Amelie the Musical - There's No Place Like Gnome Lyrics

GNOME
Greeting from the Great Wall of China!

RAPHAEL
Here's another from the U.S

GNOME
Sending lots of luck from Las Vegas!

RAPHAEL
Every week a new address

GNOME
Cheerio from Buckingham Palace!

RAPHAEL
I admit he looks good as a guard
But I want him back in my backyard

GNOME
Rio De Janeiro's Brazilliant

RAPHAEL
Do you see that crack in his clay?

GNOME
Here today gone to Maui

RAPHAEL
His black paint's fading to gray

GNOME
Traveling the world is tremendous

RAPHAEL
But for a garden gnome, its gotta be hard
But I just want him back in my backyard

GNOME
Put on my pointy shoes
And board another plane
Race down to Monaco
Chase down a bull in Spain
The stewardesses they always wonder
Doesn't matter where I roam
She asks "Are you one of Santa's elves?"
And I say "Ma'am I am a Gnome!"

RAPHAEL
I just want him back in my backyard
I just want him back in my backyard
I just want him back where he belongs
Back when nothing moves
Back before these feelings made me feel things

AMÉLIE
Dad, it's really good to see you
Here's a glass of water: take a sip
I know that change isn't easy
I'm glad that you made the trip
Why don't you look at the menu?
Meet a few of my friends while you can
You like the white wine and mussels
Dad, this is Suzanne
