Carrie: the Musical - Don't Waste the Moon Lyrics

Tommy: Come on Sue we're gonna be late.
Sue: I'm coming.
The lights come up to reveal a dozen cars facing the audience. Various kids are
making out in the cars. The lights reveal Sue and Tommy in one of the cars.
Sue: TOMMY WON'T YOU TAKE ME HOME?
I THINK I WOULD RATHER BE ALONE
I'VE STILL GOT HOMEWORK AND IT'S TEN O'CLOCK
Tommy: OH GREAT!
Sue: IT'S LATE.
Tommy: NOW WAIT.
HEY, BABY, DON'T GET MAD.
I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY YOU FEEL BAD.
BUT YOU SHOULDN'T TREAT ME LIKE I'M JUST A JOCK
Sue: LIKE WHEN?
Tommy: JUST THEN.
Sue: OH, MAN.
SEE, BOYS LIKE YOU
NEVER THINK OF SOMEONE ELSE.
Tommy: ME, THAT'S NOT TRUE
I'M JUST TRYING TO HELP.
SO BABY DON'T WASTE THE MOON
NOW THE THE NIGHT IS OURS
OH DON'T BABY DON'T WASTE THE MOON AND THE STARS
Is it something I did?
Sue: It's not you, it's Carrie.
Tommy: Prayin' Carrie?
Sue: Don't call her that.
Tommy: That thing in the shower?
Sue: We were hurting her.
Tommy: Oh come on, it was a joke.
Sue: It wasn't, and I was part of it.
Tommy: Well if you're gonna be sorry. Why don't you show me how sorry you really
are?
Sue: Tommy!
Chris and Billy pop up in another car
Chris: That goddamn Scary White.
Billy: Who the hell is Scary White?
Chris: YOU DON'T HEAR A WORD I SAY
MAYBE CAUSE YOUR BRAIN GETS IN THE WAY
I THINK YOU'RE THE VISTIM OF AN ACTIVE GLAND
Billy: OH YEAH!
Chris: OH YEAH!
Billy: OH YEAH!
YOU, WHAT A TWISTED MIND,
DON'T YOU KNOW THAT BOYS ARE GOING BLIND?
CAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE SOMEONE WHO WILL LEND A HAND
Chris: THAT SMARTS
Billy: MY HEART
Chris: DON'T START.

Chris: Oh, but she's such a pig.
Billy: I think you are so harsh.
Chris: Sixteen years old and not a clue.
Billy: Oh, come on. This Carrie stuff is driving me crazy.
Chris: Oh, Billy, what a scream
Billy: Please don't talk right now.
Chris: I'm trying to talk about Scary White
Billy: Who the hell is Scary White?
Boys: SEE WHAT I DO?
WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE SO MEAN?
Girls: GEE, BOYS LIKE YOU
