I've Got it All Lyrics - On the Twentieth Century

Broadway revival (2015)
On the Twentieth Century the musical - I've Got it All Lyrics

LILY
Life is simply great.
My silverware is gold.
Through my Bel Air estate,
Champagne’s a flowing river.
Next to my Rolls Royce,
A Cadillac’s a flivver.
I’m in clover
And my cup it runneth over.
I have left my footprints in the wet concrete,
My home town now has a Lily Garland street,
I am mobbed by fans who faint and shriek my name,
(laughs) The Price of fame.
Look at you and me,
The sweetest story told.
I’m high as I can be,
You’re lying in an alley.
Trilby found her voice –
She doesn’t need Svengali!
You’ve got nothing and I’ve got it all.
Forgive my lack of tact,
But here’s the basic fact:
You’ve got nothing and I’ve got it all.

OSCAR
(spoken) Are you finished?

LILY
(spoken) No, you are!
(sung) Chauffeur, butler, cook
OSCAR
(spoken) You’re spoiled

LILY
They’re foreign and they’re old.

OSCAR
Your reputation’s soiled.
A billion shopgirls ape you.
Nightly nationwide,
A billion farmhands rape you.

LILY
Please stop trying.
What you’d like to sell me, I’m not buying.
Don’t come at me with a contract,
I will not sign any contract.

OSCAR
Contract? Contract?
Who said contract?
Did you hear me mention contract?
I came here with a dream
We shared once long ago.
Two hearts with one grand scheme:

LILY
(spoken) Don't you know when something's over?

OSCAR
(spoken) This was a professional dream.
(sung) The role that you were made for.
A role, a chance to play
That Bernhardt would have paid for.

LILY
Save your breath.
Don’t even try.
Back again with you?
I’d rather die!

OSCAR
Perhaps it’s just as well.
I’ve seen you on the screen.
On stage you wove a spell,
With each new play it deepened.
But now your art is gone,
It’s coarsened and it’s cheapened.
Since you rolled out –
Since you sold out
To cheap Hollywood.
Sleazy, cheesy Hollywood,
Pitiful, city full of celluloid slime.

LILY
(spoken) You’re just jealous.

OLIVER
Ermine vested,
Vermin infested
Home of freaks and sheiks and geeks
And celluloid crime.

LILY
(spoken) Sour grapes!

OLIVER
Playing foolish parts,
Every part the same,
Morons who direct,
Crucify your name.
Lily on display,
Just a bargain sale.
Lily face the truth,
Lily you’ve gone stale!

LILY
(spoken) Stale?

OSCAR
Another stale cheap dolly
From cheap, cheap Holly…

LILY
My life is simply great.
My silverware is gold.
Through my Bel Air estate,
Champagne’s a flowing river.
Look at my Rolls Royce –

OSCAR
Poor Lily, you’ve gone stale.

LILY
The movie public’s choice!

OSCAR
That’s not the Holy Grail.

LILY
All the biggest names in town
Are begging to be asked to dinner.

OSCAR
Give them all a year or so,
They’ll drop you for the latest winner.

LILY
I did it all myself.

OSCAR
Keep your tainted pelf

LILY
Got there by myself

OSCAR
Landed on the shelf

LILY
Never needed you

OSCAR
Lily, you are through

LILY
I’m a winner

OSCAR
You’re a loser.

LILY
Stop your trying,
I’m not buying.

OSCAR
Tragic story,
lost your glory.

LILY
Some Svengali,
In an alley.

OSCAR
Shop girls ape you,
Farmhands rape you.

LILY
I’ve got it

OSCAR
You’ve lost it

LILY
I’ve got it!

OSCAR
You’ve lost it!

LILY
I’ve got it.

OSCAR
You’ve lost it!

LILY
I’ve got it!

OSCAR
You’ve lost it!
Cheap Hollywood…

LILY
I’ve got it all

OSCAR
Cheap Hollywood

LILY
I’ve got it all

OSCAR
You’ve lost it!

LILY
I’ve got it

LILY & OSCAR
All!
