2020 Off-Broadway
Emojiland the Musical - It's Just so Great to Be Alive Lyrics


DANCING MAN:
Life is a crazy dance
You don't get a second chance
Not when you're living in a phone

PILE OF POO:
Sometimes the poo gets real

ENSEMBLE:
Oh

HAMSTER:
You're caught in the hamster wheel

ENSEMBLE:
Ohh

SANTA:
Stay in the present
The future's unknown

ALL:
'Cause the world is colourful
Hearts are loveable
Love's corruptible,
But not untouchable.
Names unchangeable
Fun untamable
We thank the code for all it's bestowed 'cause
It's just so great to be alive
Woah, oh, oh
Peace, thumbs up, pound, ok, high five
Woah, oh, oh

We're all connected in Emojiland
We're more than hyphens or an ampersand, oh
Peace, thumbs up, pound, ok, high five, oh
It's just so great to be alive

INFORMATION DESK PERSON: (spoken)
Attention Emojiland! Breaking news this morning, as we received information of a software update. The much-anticipated download and installation are expected to take place tonight. Full coverage to come. Until then, his has been Information Desk Person live from the information desk!

THINKING FACE: (spoken)
Hey, Smize!

SMIZE: (spoken)
Hey, Thinking Face!

THINKING FACE: (spoken)
I was thinking, what do you want from the update?

SMIZE: (spoken) Me?
(sung)
When you're a smiling face
With a smile that you can't erase
Wishing for something more feels greedy

THINKING FACE: (spoken)
Uh-huh. And what about you, Sunny, any update wishes?

SUNNY:
Whatever's installed I'm sure
Gonna bump up my followers, hey!
When you got a face like mine
Ya ain't gotta be needy
Oh!

'Cause a look is powerful
And mine's undoubtable
My cool so palpable
It freaks me out a little
My boo so true to me
Sticks like glue to me
Our love is real, Smize tell 'em how you feel!

SMIZE:
It's just so great to be alive
Woah oh oh oh
Peace, thumbs up, pound, ok, high five

SMIZE & SUNNY:
Oh oh oh!
We've been together since 1.0

SMIZE:
Sunny's got the flow!

SUNNY:
And Smize is so fo-sho!

SMIZE & SUNNY:
Peace, thumbs up, pound, ok, high five

ALL:
Oh!
It's just so great to be alive

CONSTRUCTION WORKER: (spoken)
Tell you what, Police Officer, there could be a thousand updates, but no new emoji could ever beat a god, old-fashioned donut!

POLICE OFFICER: (spoken)
I couldn't agree more, Construction Worker. I just hope we don't get a fresh batch of bad characters.

PRINCESS: (spoken)
Man in Business Suit Levitating!

MAN IN BUSINESS SUIT LEVITATING: (spoken)
Yes, Princess?

PRINCESS: (spoken)
Man in Business Suit Levitating, it has come to my attention that your totally vague business operations are in violation of royal princess decree number 24601.5, which states:

GUARDSMAN: (spoken)
O-M-G, I-M-O, W-T-F

MAN IN BUSINESS SUIT LEVITATING: (spoken)
Understood your majesty, consider it done.

PRINCESS: (spoken)
Good!

MAN IN BUSINESS SUIT LEVITATING: (spoken)
Oh, and, your majesty, while I'm here. In anticipation of the imminent update-induced population expansion, the aforementioned business dealings and their respective markets would benefit greatly from an increase in royal funding.

PRINCESS: (spoken)
How much?

MAN IN BUSINESS SUIT LEVITATING: (spoken)
Ten million moneybags.

PRINCESS: (spoken)
Done.

MAN IN BUSINESS SUIT LEVITATING: (spoken)
Ten billion..?

PRINCESS: (spoken)
Fine.

MAN IN BUSINESS SUIT LEVITATING: (spoken)
Ten trillion moneybags?

PRINCESS: (spoken)
Fine!

MAN IN BUSINESS SUIT LEVITATING: (spoken)
Thank you, Princess!

GUARDSMAN: (spoken)
And I can't even get a raise!

SKULL: (spoken)
It's just so great to be... to be.. or not to be.
(sung)
When you're a skull
The question's dull
For you are death down to the bone

So one day now
We'll say goodbye
To this place
This cell
This phone

ALL OTHER EMOJIS:
This phone
This phone
This phone

This phone
This phone
This phone

POLICE OFFICER:
Duty calls!

CONSTRUCTION WORKER:
Gotta punch back in

POLICE OFFICER:
Hey, when the grind gets you down

CONTRUCTION WORKER & POLICE OFFICER:
You gotta take it on the chin

PRINCESS:
It's lonely at the top
But you can spare your violin
Because whatever new emojis arrive

ALL OTHER EMOJIS:
Whatever new emojis arrive

MAN IN BUSINESS SUIT LEVITATING:
However meets the sweat of their stride

SMIZE & SUNNY:
A smile's all it takes

ALL:
A smile's all it takes to survive and thrive
Inside a net flash memory hard-drive 'cause
It's just so great to be alive
Oh oh oh
Peace, thumbs up, pound, ok, high five
Oh oh oh!

We're all a part of something greater than
A painted pixel or a data plan, oh
Peace, thumbs up, pound, ok, high five, oh
It's just so great to be an emoji
It's just so so great to be alive in Emojiland
