Newsies the Musical - Watch What Happens Reprise Lyrics


JACK (spoken):
There's no way I am puttin' them kids back in danger.

DAVEY (spoken):
Tell me how quitting does Crutchie any good? Exactly. So...

(sung) Here's how it goes:
Once we win, and we will be winning, make no mistake-

JACK:
We'll be what?

DAVEY:
We're already winning.

JACK:
Right!

DAVEY:
And we'll tell 'em straight out they let Crutchie go or they keep getting pounded.

JACK:
Dave, what the hell- did they bust up your brains or somethin'?
As I recall, Dave, we all got our asses kicked. They won!

DAVEY:
Won the battle.

JACK:
Come on!

DAVEY:
Jackie, think about it: we got them surrounded!

JACK:
Here's what I think: Joe's a jerk, he's a rattlesnake!

DAVEY:
You're right. And you know why a snake starts to rattle?

JACK:
No, why?

DAVEY:
'Cause he's scared.

JACK:
Sure.

DAVEY:
Go and look it up- the poor guy's head is spinning.
Why would he send for the goons- An entire army?
Dozens of goons and the cops and-

JACK:
You know you may be right...

DAVEY:
Thank you, god!

JACK:
If he wasn't afraid-

DAVEY:
Exactly.

JACK:
Huh.

DAVEY & JACK:
He knows we're winning!

DAVEY, KATHERINE & LES:
Get those kids to see we're circling victory and watch what happens!

DAVEY, JACK, KATHERINE & LES:
We're doing somethingno one's even tried,
And yes, we're terrified, but watch what happens!

JACK:
You can't undo the past,

DAVEY:
So just move on

DAVEY & KATHERINE:
And stay on track

LES:
Stay on track.

DAVEY, JACK, KATHERiNE & LES:
'Cause Humpty Dumpty is about to crack!

KATHERINE:
We've got faith,

DAVEY:
We've got the plan,

LES:
And we've got Jack!

JACK, DAVEY, KATHERINE & LES:
So just watch what happens: we're back!

LES:
And I've got a date!
