A New Brain the Musical - A Really Lousy Day In The Universe Lyrics


Song from "A New Brain the Musical" is titled "A Really Lousy Day In The Universe" and is written by William Finn.

LISA:
Hey mister! Hey you!
What are you looking so sad for?

ROGER:
Nothing, really nothing, absolutely nothing
How about some money?

LISA:
I can’t refuse
I need new shoes and some pants
I need romance
What about you?

ROGER:
Tonight, after eight long hours he appeared
It was worse than the doctor had feared
And then the doctor said, “I hoped by now he’d be awake;
At least I thought he’d be awake. My mistake!”

Then I prodded him and poked him
And his mother started crying
And then Rhoda started yelling at the nurse
It was a really lousy day in the universe

LISA:
You love him
Too bad
What are you looking surprised for?

ROGER:
We hoped things would turn out better

LISA:
Things don’t get better
They only seem to
Then they don’t
Don’t be surprised
When life turns out to be
A trashy old catastrophe

Hey mister!
It’s all right
Life is a rotten occasion

ROGER:
Let me give you money

LISA:
Please forget the money
Please do not insult me
I’m not amused

ROGER:
But it’s therapy

LISA:
I give therapy for free
I’m just glad to have a client finally

ROGER:
So I called his name and hugged him
But the jerk is in a coma
And his mother hopes he dies if he gets worse
It was a really lousy day in the universe

LISA:
They all are
They all are
