The Twenty Dollar Bill Lyrics

Broadway
Caroline, or Change the Musical - The Twenty Dollar Bill Lyrics


NOAH:
The next day I go off to school.

ROSE:
Noah, darling, study hard!
You should see his last report card, Papa, everything Cs and Ds.

MR. STOPNICK:
Look at this! The hypocrites!
Eulogizing, rhapsodizing!
Kennedy!
Kennedy!
They hated him!
They murdered him!
Did him in!
And now?

ROSE:
Good morning Caroline.

NOAH:
All day long I sit at school,
Drifting dreaming in the classroom,
Inattentive cause I'm BORED!

ROSE, STUART, MR. STOPNICK:
Study, Noah, study hard!

NOAH:
Drawing doodles, Maccabees,
Bumble bees, Christmas trees
And all the toys I plan to buy with?
Buy with?
Buy with?

GRANDMA AND GRANDPA GELLMAN:
Suddenly he sits up straight,
Suddenly he can't concentrate!
Suddenly open go the eyes!

NOAH:
Suddenly I realize:

GRANDMA AND GRANDPA GELLMAN:
A dreadful blow he has been dealt!

NOAH:
Left my'left my?

NOAH, GRANDMA AND GRANDPA GELLMAN:
Chanukah Gelt!

NOAH:
All that money!
Twenty Dollars!

GRANDMA AND GRANDPA GELLMAN:
Twenty dollars!
In your pocket!
In the pocket of your pants!

NOAH:
In the pocket of my pants!
There's still a chance!
Maybe she hasn't done the laundry!
There's all that cleaning after a party.
Oh please clock please clock strike three now.

GRANDMA AND GRANDPA GELLMAN:
Tick tock tick tock

NOAH:
Anyhow
She can't it's mine!
She can't have my money! I'll sue!
Aw come on, clock!

GRANDMA AND GRANDPA GELLMAN:
It's only two.

NOAH:
I'm plotzing with anxiety!

GRANDMA AND GRANDPA GELLMAN:
Alright, already; Now it's three.

NOAH:
Finally!
The second I hear the three o'clock bell?
I'm a bat out of hell!
I run down the street'like a blur!
And right away, the washing machine!

WASHING MACHINE:
Consequences unforeseen. I'm on!

NOAH:
In the basement! It's on! It's her!
The spin cycle's already started to spin!
She's down there! Wait! Wait! Caroline!

CAROLINE:
What?

NOAH:
Did you find??

CAROLINE:
Yep, I did. And now it's mine.
