Amelie the Musical - World's Best Dad Lyrics

YOUNG AMÉLIE
If I don't have the world's best Dad
At least it's on his coffee cup!
And once a month I get to have my very own check-up
He's not the kind to give a hug
He was a doctor in a war
And though he never gets too close
That's what the check-up's for!

Oh, here we go
He'll take my hand inside of his hand
Though, there is the glove

And all that I know, he'll listen through his stethoscope
As my heart fills with love

RAPHAEL
Amandine!

WOMEN
Amandine Poulain likes the flavor of stamps
Has a nervous twitch around her eye
She likes a bath at bedtime

AMANDINE
And dislikes when my fingers wrinkle

RAPHAEL
Our daughter's heart is racing

AMANDINE (spoken)
Oh dear

RAPHAEL
I fear it might be broken

AMANDINE (spoken)
She's broken?

RAPHAEL
I worry that her heart cannot handle any stimulation

AMANDINE (spoken)
What do we do?

RAPHAEL
We cut all recreation and teach her at home

RAPHAEL & AMANDINE
We can keep her heartbeat stable
Your school is the kitchen table

RAPHAEL
Now

AMANDINE
No need to take the school bus

RAPHAEL
Just leave it to the two of us

AMANDINE
No germs or boys or bullies

RAPHAEL & AMANDINE
But say hello to your new classmate

AMANDINE (spoken)
Would you like to name him?

YOUNG AMÉLIE (spoken)
Fluffy!
