It Won't Be Long Now Lyrics

2008 Broadway
In The Heights the Musical - It Won't Be Long Now Lyrics

Original song "It Won't Be Long Now" from the musical In The Heights is written by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

VANESSA: The elevated train by my window doesn't faze me anymore
The rattling screams don't disrupt my dreams
It's a lullaby, in its way
The elevated train drives everyone insane but I don't mind, oh no
When I bring back boys they can't tolerate the noise
And that's okay cuz I never let them stay
And one day, I'm hoppin that elevated train and I'm ridin away
It won't be long now
The boys around the way
Holler at me when I'm walkin down the street
Their machismo pride doesn't break my stride-
It's a compliment, so they say
They boys around the way
Holler at me every day but I don't mind, oh no
If I'm in the mood, it will not be with some dude
Who is whistling cuz he has nothing to say
Or who's honking at me from his Chevrolet
And one day, I'm hoppin in a limousine and I'm ridin away
It won't be long now
Ay ,Usnavi, help SOS!

USNAVI: Good morning, Vanessa! If it isn't the loveliest girl in the place

VANESSA: You've got some schmutz on your face

SONNY: Good morning!

SONNY/USNAVI: Good morning!

USNAVI: Vanessa...

SONNY: Vanessa...

USNAVI/SONNY: Vanessa...

DANIELA: (Screaming from the salon) VANESSAAA! I'm thirsty, cono!

VANESSA: Can I get a Pepsi and some packing tape?

SONNY: Uh, my cousin over there with his tongue hanging out, has been meaning to ask you...

VANESSA: Yes?

SONNY: What would a lady such as yourself might be doing tonight?

VANESSA: Does your cousin dance?

SONNY: Like a drunk Chita Rivera

VANESSA: Okay...after Nina's dinner, we can hit a few clubs and check out the fireworks...

USNAVI: Oh snap!
Who's that?
Don't touch me, I'm too hot! Yes!
Que paso?
Here I go!
So dope!
Y tu lo sabes!
No pare

SONNY/USNAVI: Sigue sigue!

USNAVI: Did you see me?

SONNY/USNAVI: Freaky Freakit!

USNAVI: What a way to begin the weekend
Sonny, anything you want is free, man!
And my dearly beloved
Dominican Republic
I haven't forgotten

SONNY /USNAVI: You!

USNAVI: Gonna see this honey
Make a little money
An one day I'll hop Jet

SONNY/USNAVI: Blue!

USNAVI: But until that fateful day I'm grateful
I got a destination
I'm runnin to make it home
And home's what Vanessa's runnin away from!
I'm running to make it home
And home's what Vanessa's runnin away from...

VANESSA: The neighborhood salon is the place I am working for the moment
As I cut their hair, ladies talk and share-
Every day, who's doing who and why
The neighborhood salon doesn't pay me what I wanna be making but I don't mind
As I sweep the curb I can hear those turbo engines blazing a trail through the sky
I look up and think about the years gone by
But one day I'm walking to JFK and I'm gonna fly!
It won't be long now
Any day
