Amelie the Musical - How To Tell Time Lyrics

BRETODEAUX (spoken)
Hello? Hello?

AMÉLIE (spoken)
Look down, Monsieur Bretodeaux.

BRETODEAUX (spoken)
What?

AMÉLIE (spoken)
Down...

BRETODEAUX (spoken)
I... I don't understand

AMÉLIE (spoken)
Look down

AMÉLIE (BRETODEAUX)
On the ledge (A metal box)
A rusty hinge (I know that lock!)

AMÉLIE & BRETODEAUX
Slowly crack the treasure open

AMÉLIE (BRETODEAUX)
Cat's eye marble (I forgot)
A diecast car (My hiding spot. My trusty knife.)
Coins from the war (My father's watch)

AMÉLIE & BRETODEAUX
And so much more
I am Howard Carter stepping into Tutankhamun's tomb

COMPANY
Unlock the box

BRETODEAUX (COMPANY)
I'm seven in the schoolyard (Unlock the box)
I hear my mother's voice, she's calling from the hall (Unlock the box)
My father handing me his wristwatch!
Here's how to tell time
How to tell time

AMÉLIE & BRETODEAUX
How to tell time
How to tell time

AMÉLIE
How to tell

BRETODEAUX (spoken)
A cognac, please!
