Newsies the Musical - I Never Planned on You/ Don't Come a-Knocking Lyrics


JACK (spoken):
Well, hello again.

KATHERINE (spoken):
Please go away. I'm working.

JACK (spoken):
A smart girl, eh? Beautiful. Smart. Independent.

(sung)
I got no use for moonlight or sappy poetry.
Love at first sight's for suckers, at least it used to be.
Look, girls are nice, once or twice, till i find someone new,
But I never planned on someone like you.
--
(simultaneously with below)
I got no use for moonlight or sappy poetry.
Love at first sight's for suckers, at least it used to be.

BOWERY BEAUTIES:
Don't come a knocking on my door.
You aren't welcome here no more.
I should have known you stunk like yesterday's trash the night
you stole my heart plus forty dollars in cash.
Turns out my beau is just some bum.
Turns out that love ain't blind, it's dumb.
You never told the truth or worked a day in your life.
In fact, you're so revoltin', I feel bad for your wife.
--
KATHERINE (spoken):
What are you doing?

BOWERY BEAUTIES:
I won't be shaving your back anymore, no, senor.

JACK (spoken):
Quiet down. There's a show going on.

BOWERY BEAUTIES:
Don't come a-knocking on my door!

KATHERINE (spoken):
You are the most impossible boy ever.

BOWERY BEAUTIES:
Don't come a-knocking on my door!

JACK (spoken):
Shh!

(sung) No, I never planned on someone like you.

BOWERY BEAUTIES:
Don't come a-knocking on my door!
