Amelie the Musical - World's Best Friend Lyrics

"World's Best Friend" is a song from Amelie performed by Savvy Crawford (Young Amelie), Alison Cimmet (Amandine), Paul Whitty (Fluffy).

AMANDINE (spoken)
We begin with geometry. Zeno's paradox: In ancient Greece the philosopher Zeno,
positive that no two objects could ever touch

YOUNG AMÉLIE
Some girls have classrooms where lessons are taught
But a kitchen and fish bowl are all that we've got
If you'll be my first mate then I'll be your chum
And I'll buy you a castle and brand new aquarium!
World's best friends!
You and I
Now you say it!

FLUFFY
World's best friends! You and I

YOUNG AMÉLIE
Now together!

YOUNG AMÉLIE & FLUFFY
World's best friends!

AMANDINE (spoken)
Amélie! Pay attention! Zeno's paradox: To reach a point one must always
reach a halfway point and from there the next halfway point.
There will always be another half way point

FLUFFY
Listen to your crazy Mom!
Droning on
Look at me now I'm her: blah blah blah blah blah!
This is oh so not where you should be
There's that twitch every time she blinks
Or she thinks as her lesson sinks in like a shipwreck for you and me!

AMANDINE (spoken)
Two objects can never meet

FLUFFY & YOUNG AMÉLIE
Listen to your crazy Mom!
Droning on
Blah blah blah blah!
Over and over
I'm glad there's someone else who can see

FLUFFY
Your parents are crazy

FLUFFY & YOUNG AMÉLIE
But you can count on me!

AMANDINE (spoken)
Amélie, did you hear me?
Give me that bowl!

AMÉLIE (spoken)
Fluffy!

AMANDINE (spoken)
Give me the bowl. Give me the bowl

FLUFFY
Nooooo

RAPHAEL (spoken)
The fish has to go!

AMÉLIE
You never got your plastic castle
But Fluffy you've been granted a parole
You're not being sold on the river
You're getting the world's biggest bowl
And any time that you get lonely
Just take a little look up from below
When you see stones skip the surface
That's me saying hello

FLUFFY
Bye
Bye
Bye
Goodbye

FLUFFY & YOUNG AMÉLIE
Goodbye
