Cry-Baby the Musical - A Little Upset Lyrics

[Cry-Baby]
I’m just a little upset
I don’t mean to be rude
I’d hate to have my fury at the world be misconstrued
Just feel kinda bad
Ever so sad
I get that way when they take my girl and fry my mum and dad
But if you see me fuss and fret
Please don’t take it as a threat
It’s just sometimes I get a little upset

Yeah, I’ll just settle myself down a bit

Actually...
I’m still a little upset
Just a little bit irked
That this entire world around which I am getting jerked
I guess that I’m not
Feelin’ so hot
I must’ve woke up on the wrong side of my rat-infested cot
How profoundly I regret
This entire tete-a-tete
It’s just sometimes I get a little upset

[Dupree]
‘Scuse me officer
I hate to bother you but

I’m also a little upset
Like my friend over here
A decade in the slammer isn’t great for my career
Good thing I’m mature
You can be sure
This is nothing that a full-scale prison riot wouldn’t cure
Now I’ve gone and broke a sweat
That’s what happens when you let
Yourself gradually get a little upset

I’m tryin’ to stay positive
I’m tryin’ not to frown
And I’m positive I’d smile if I could tear this prison down

[Cry-Baby]
You say I’ll get out early
If I show you some repentance
But I ain’t never been too good at finishing a...

[Prisoners]
We’re just a little upset
Sounds hard to believe
But unjust incarceration is our number one pet peeve

[Guards]
Don’t take it so hard
We’re standing guard
We wouldn’t want this place to leave you permanently scarred

[Cry-Baby]
From the moment that we met
I’ve been deeply in your debt
For your patience for when I get a little upset

[Cry-Baby, Dupree and prisoners]
Because brother you can bet
That you ain’t seen nothin’ yet
We’re about to pitch a fit
And by the time we’re through with it
You’ll be more than just a lit-tle upset

[Cry-Baby]
Oh-oh-oh-oh
oh-oh-oh
Carpe diem not incarceratum
Let’s escape our metal Dupree
... turn ‘em in Alcatraz

[Dupree]
No way
