Bridges of Madison County the Musical - Home Before You Know It Lyrics


(Music & lyrics by Jason Robert Brown - Home Before You Know It Lyrics)

BUD
Fran, you know the drill.
Now, look, if anything goes wrong -
I know you think it never will,
But if it does,
They know next door
You're here alone.

Now Fran, you're free and clear,
We got the fences fixed already,
So while we're out with the steer,
You should be fine.
And if you're not,
Pick up the phone.

You know there's room for you to come,
Although, I take it back, there's not.
We got the cow, we got the kids,
And then the tent, which I forgot.
We better get out on the road
Before the trailer gets too hot,

But we'll be home before you know.
We'll be home before you notice that we're gone.
Three days isn't very long,
And so if anything goes wrong,
Just hold on tight -
The end's in sight -
And we'll be home.

BUD                                        MICHAEL                     
What?                                     I'm gonna drive!                           
I do not think so, Michael.          Last year, you said
When I was sixteen,
I could drive…
And I'm sixteen!
Right now I am talking to          You gonna go back on
Your mother!                           your Word?
Come on! I drive
Michael, get the lunch!              Better'n you.
What did I say?                        I tell you now -
Go get the Lunch!                   I won't be squeezin' in the middle
Jesus!                                    I'm not squeezin' in the middle!

BUD                                                      MICHAEL
I've got to move it out right now 
I don't have time to sit and wait,                How 'bout if I just
We get a worse spot in the stall                 Drive the last mile?
For every minute that we're late!               So we can come in that
And I can see by how you're lookin'            Fair in style?
That you think it's really great                    Oh!
That we'll be home before you know it.      I can't believe this.
We'll be home
And then I won't do this again.
Year sure, you're laughin' at me now,
When I got two kids and a cow
I gotta show
We gotta go
Then we'll be home.

FRANCESCA
Sweetheart, it's Mom.

CARLOYN
Why does he have to be a jerk?

FRANCESCA
I'm sorry you got upset with Dad,
but you've worked so hard with Steve.
All you have to do now is go to Indianapolis…
so he can win Steer of the Year.

CAROLYN
Why do you have to sound like him?
Why do you have to say what he says?
You don't care about the farm.

FRANCESCA
Carolyn. This could be your college education right here.

CAROLYN
You should have made him stay in Italy
Then I could be Italian
And you could be happy
And I wouldn't have to marry a farmer.

FRANCESCA
You don't have to marry a farmer.

CAROLYN
Nobody asks me what I want!

BUD
Carolyn!

CAROLYN
Ti amo, mama. Coming!

BUD
You'll be OK here, right?

FRANCESCA
I've got a book I want to read, I've got new recipes to try,
Or I might just spend 3 days sitting here and staring at the sky,
But I can't get out of this kitchen 'till you finally say goodbye,
And you'll be home before I know it.

BUD
Ok then, we'll see you Thursday.

FRANCESCA
You'll be home before I notice that you're gone.

BUD
We'll call from the road. All right, here we go!

FRANCESCA
You'll be home before I know it.
