Happily Ever After Lyrics

Off-Broadway Musical
Marry Me a Little - Happily Ever After Lyrics

(cut from Company the Musical)
(written by Stephen Sondheim Happily Ever After lyrics)

Someone to hold you too close
Someone to hurt you too deep
Someone to love you too hard
Happily ever after

Someone to need you too much
Someone to read you too well
Someone to bleed you of all
The things you don't want to tell
That's happily ever after,
Ever, ever, ever after
In hell

Somebody always there
Sitting in the chair
Where you want to sit
Always, always
Somebody always there
Wanting you to share
Just a little bit
Always, always

Then see the pretty girls
Smiling everywhere
From the ads and the TV sets
And why should you sweat?
What do you get?
One day of grateful,
For six of regret!

With
Someone to hold you too close
Someone to hurt you too deep
Someone to bore you to death
Happily ever after

Someone you have to know well
Someone you have to show how
Someone you have to allow
The things you'd never allow
That's happily ever after,
Ever, ever, ever after
'Til now

So quick!
Get a little car, take a little drive
Make a little love, see a little flick
Do a little work, take a little walk
Watch a little TV
And click!
Make a little love, do a little work
Get a little drunk,
You've got one little trip, seventy years
Spread it around!
Take your pick!
Buy a little here, spend a little there
Smoke a little pot for a little kick
Waste a little time, make a little love
Show a little feeling

But why should you try?
Why not, sure, feel a little lonely?
But fly! Why not fly!

With
No one to hold you too close
No one to hurt you too deep
No one to love you too hard
Happily ever after

No one you have to know well
No one you have to show how
No one you have to allow
The things you'd never allow
That's happily ever after
Ever, ever, ever after
For now

Ever, ever, ever after
Ever, ever, ever, ever after
Ever, ever, ever after
