Barbra Streisand - Take Me to the World Lyrics

"Take Me to the World" is a song from musical "Evening Primrose" performed by
Barbra Streisand with Antonio Banderas.

(Barbra Streisand:)
Let me see the world with clouds
Take me to the world
Out where I can push through crowds
Take me to the world

A world that smiles
With streets instead of aisles
Where I can walk for miles with you

Take me to the world that’s real
Show me how it’s done
Teach me how to laugh, to feel
Move me to the sun

Just hold my hand whenever we arrive
Take me to a world where I can be alive
Him: The world is better here. I know I’ve seen them both.

Let me see the world that smiles Him: A poet doesn’t count for much out there
Take me to the world Him: We’d be cold and hungry in the winter
Somewhere I can walk for miles Him: A shabby room with cracked plaster
Take me to the world Him: You couldn’t get a job

With all around things growing in the ground Him: We’d end up hating each other.
We’d have fights. You’d cry.
Where birds that make a sound are birds

Let me see the world that’s real Him: I have seen the world
Show me how it’s done Him: And it’s mean and ugly
Teach me how to laugh, to feel Him: We could laugh together
Move me to the sun Him: Stay here with me

Just hold my hand whenever we arrive Him: Stay here. I love you. But we’re happy here
Let it be a world with you Him: Stay with me
Any other world with you
Take me to a world where I can be alive


(Antonio Banderas:)
Do you want the world ?
Well then, you shall have the world
Ask me for the world again
You shall have the world

A world of skies
That’s bursting with surprise
To open up your eyes for joy

We shall see the world come true
We shall have the world
I won’t be afraid with you
We shall have the world
You’ll hold my hand and know you’re not alone

You shall have the world to keep
Such a lovely world you’ll weep
We shall have the world forever for our own
