Muriel's Wedding the Musical - Never Stick Your Neck Out Lyrics


BRICE NOBES: (spoken)
There's this girl I really like, but our first date was disastrous.
I mean, horrific. It was... catastrophic. But I should text her, right?

MAN: (spoken)
I'm not your father

BRICE: (spoken)
I already texted my father. Here's what he said

MAN: (spoken)
"A word of advice, Brice"?

BRICE: (spoken)
Yeah

MAN:
"Don't go getting your hopes up
They will be dashed, your dreams will be smashed up
Best avoid disappointment
Hope is a rash, pessimism's the ointment."

BRICE: (spoken)
Typical dad, always looking out for me. Ever since I was little,
he'd sit me on his knee and he'd say "Son, never try, and you can't fail.
Never ask and they can't say no. And when in doubt, pull your head in"

BRICE & MAN:
Don't go getting your hopes up
They will be dashed, your dreams will be smashed up
Best avoid complications
No good ever came from great expectations

BRICE:
Woah

BRICE & MAN:
Never stick your neck out
Never stick your neck out
Remember
Never stick your neck out
Never stick your neck out

BRICE:
So that's how I lived my life
If I start to feel too brave
Or think that I might take a chance
Take a leap, go my own way
I hear my father's voice
And he'd say, he'd say

BRICE, MAN & MALE COMPANY:
Don't go getting your hopes up
They will be dashed, your dreams will be smashed up
Best avoid disappointment
Hope is a rash, pessimism's the ointment
Woah
Never stick your neck out
Never stick your neck out
Remember
Never stick your neck out
Never stick your neck out

MALE COMPANY:
Woah oh oh oh
Woah oh oh oh oh

BRICE:
All this time thought I was fine
Floating on a gentle sea
Then a girl named Mariel
Came along and capsized me

MALE COMPANY:
Woah

BRICE:
Now I'm riding on a wave
I've never felt so alive
Or free
Or free

MAN: (spoken)
Text her!

BRICE: (spoken)
You think?

MAN: (spoken)
Send that text!

BRICE:
I'm gonna stick my neck out
I'm gonna stick my neck out

MALE COMPANY:
He's free

BRICE:
I'm gonna stick my neck out
I'm gonna stick my neck out
I'm gonna stick my neck out

MALE COMPANY:
Don't go getting your hopes up
He's gonna stick his neck out

BRICE:
I'm gonna stick my neck out
I'm gonna stick my neck out
I'm gonna stick my neck out
I'm gonna stick my neck out

MALE COMPANY:
Don't go getting your hopes up
He's free

BRICE:
I'm gonna stick my neck out
I'm gonna stick my neck out
Stick my neck out

MALE COMPANY:
Don't go getting your hopes up
He's gonna stick his neck out

BRICE: (spoken)
Sent!
