In Transit the Musical - A Little Friendly Advice Lyrics


MS. WILLIAMS
WHEN YOU’RE CHASIN’ DOWN A DREAM
BUT YOUR WILL TO RUN IS GONE
WHEN IT GETS TO BE TOO MUCH
AND YA FEEL YA CAN’T GO ON

DON’TCHA LET YOURSELF GIVE OVER
TO SELF PITY AND CONFUSION
LIFT YOUR HEAD, TAKE A BREATH,
AND COME TO THIS CONCLUSION...

IT’S TIME TO GIIIIIVE UP!
GO ON N’ GIVE UP, KID!

JANE
What?!

MS. WILLIAMS
GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAM
YOU’LL BE AWFUL GLAD YA DID!
IT JUST AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN
SO LET THAT SHIP SET SAIL
LISTEN TO ME CHILD,
JUST BAIL.

WHEN YOU GRADUATE CUM LAUDE
BUT YOUR GETTIN’ BOSS’S MEALS
WHEN YOU’VE POUNDED ALL THE PAVEMENT
IN THOSE PLEATHER PAYLESS HEELS

JANE
They’re from Target.

MS. WILLIAMS
WHEN DEEP INSIDE YOU KNOW
YOU’VE GOT A GOOD HEAD ON YOUR SHOULDERS
AND YET YOU’RE ONLY USING IT
TO FILE MANILA FOLDERS
THAT’S WHEN YOU
Give The hell UP!

JUST GIVE UP, HON!
YOU’VE GAVE IT YOUR BEST SHOT, GIRL,
BUT IT’S TIME FOR THAT PHASE TO BE DONE!
WHY STRUGGLE TOWARDS A GOAL
THAT MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE SHIT?
THAT’S CRAAAAAZY BABY!
JUST QUIT.

THEN YOU’LL EXPERIENCE WHAT OPRAH CALLS
A SPIRITUAL REBIRTH
AND FOCUS ON FINDING JOBS
THAT PAY YOU WHAT YOU’RE WORTH!
THEN THE UNIVERSE WILL HUM

BACK-UPS
HUMMMMMMMMMM

MS. WILLIAMS
AS THE OPPORTUNITIES COME

BACK-UPS
COMMMMMMEEEEEE

MS. WILLIAMS
FOR INSTANCE!
HOW’D YA LIKE TO BE MY JUNIOR ASSOCIATE
FOR 60K A YEAR?!

JANE
GOSH, I REALLY DON’T KNOW IF --

MS. WILLIAMS
OKAY, 61.5?!

COME ON N’ STEP UP!
OH, CHILD!
STEP UP WHILE YOU CAN!
I’LL THROW IN THE CORNER CUBICLE
AND AN OXFORD INSURANCE PLAN!

JANE
With dental?

MS. WILLIAMS
Let’s not get crazy.
DON’T LOOK AT IT AS SELLIN’ OUT,
IT’S MORE LIKE SELLIN’ HIGH!
YOUR STOCK IS GOOD N’ FOLKS WILL BUY!
CHILD, I WANT TO BUY!
SO LET THOSE OTHER DREAMS JUST DIE!

LET THOSE OLD DREAMS DIIIIIIE!

(DIRECT SEGUE TO TAG – ONE TRACK)

MS. WILLIAMS
So what’da ya say? Have we got a deal?

JANE
Can I let you know next week? 

MS. WILLIAMS
Sure! But remember Jane, those dreams?

JANE
Yeah?

MS. WILLIAMS
Do yourself a favor...

MS. WILLIAMS
CUT THEM DOWN!
BURN ‘EM UP!
RIP ‘EM OUT!
KILL ‘EM OFF!
DROWN THOSE SUCKERS!
SLICE ‘EM LIKE SALAMI!
FLUSH ‘EM DOWN THE TOILET!
USE A LEAD PIPE IN THE STUDY!
BACK-UPS
CUT ‘EM DOWN!
BURN ‘EM UP!
RIP ‘EM OUT!
KILL ‘EM OFF!
DROWN ‘EM OUT!
SLICE ‘EM UP!
FLUSH ‘EM DOWN!
LEAD PIPE!

MS. WILLIAMS/BACK-UPS
JUST PUT ‘EM IN A BAG AND GO
STOMP-STOMP-STOMP-NOW/STOMP DIE!

MS. WILIAMS
LET

BACK-UPS
LET

MS. WILIAMS
THEM

BACK-UPS
THEM

ALL
DIE
LET ‘EM DIE!!
