The Music Man - Pick-A-Little, Talk-A-Little Lyrics

2000 Broadway revival
The Music Man Musical - Pick-A-Little, Talk-A-Little Lyrics


ALMA:
Pick a little, talk a little, pick a little, talk a little
Cheep cheep cheep, talk a lot, pick a little more

ALMA & ETHEL:
Pick a little, talk a little, pick a little, talk a little
Cheep cheep cheep, talk a lot, pick a little more

ALL THE LADIES:
Pick a little, talk a little, pick a little, talk a little
Cheep cheep cheep, talk a lot, pick a little more

MAUD:
Professor, her kind of woman doesn't belong on any committee
Of course I shouldn't tell you this but she advocates dirty books

HAROLD:
Dirty books?

ALMA:
Chaucer!

MAUD:
Rabelais!

EULALIE:
Balzac!

MAUD:
And the worst thing, of course I shouldn't tell you this but-

ALMA:
I'll tell!

ETHEL:
The man lived on my street, let me tell !

EULALIE:
No! I'll tell
She made brazen overtures to a man who never had a friend
In this town 'till she came here

ALMA:
Oh yes
That woman made brazen overtures with a gilt-edged guarantee
She had a golden glint in her eye
And a silver voice with a counterfeit ring
Just melt her down and you'll reveal a lump of lead as cold as steel
Here, where a woman's heart should be

EULALIE, ETHEL, MAUD, ALMA, MRS. SQUIRES:
He left River City the library building
But he left all the books to her!

ALMA:
Chaucer!

MAUD:
Rabelais!

EULALIE:
Balzac!

LADIES:
Pick a little, talk a little, pick a little, talk a little
Cheep cheep cheep, talk a lot, pick a little more
Pick a little, talk a little, pick a little, talk a little
Cheep cheep cheep, talk a lot, pick a little more

Pick a little, talk a little, pick a little, talk a little
Cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep
Cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep
Cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep
Pick a little, talk a little, pick a little, talk a little
Pick a little, talk a little, cheep!
