The Bitch Of Living Lyrics

The Original Broadway Musical
Spring Awakening - The Bitch Of Living Lyrics


MORITZ
God, I dreamed there was an angel
Who could hear me through the wall
As I cried out-like, in Latin
"This is so not life at all
Help me out-out-of this nightmare"
Then I heard her silver call-
She said: "Just give it time, kid
I come to one and all"

She said: "Give me that hand, please
And the itch you can't control
Let me teach you how to handle
All the sadness in your soul
Oh, we'll work that silver magic
Then we'll aim it at the wall"
She said: "Love may make you blind kid-
But I wouldn't mind at all"

ALL
It's the bitch of living
(Bitch, just the bitch)
With nothing but your hand
(Just the bitch, yeah)
Just the bitch of living
As someone you can't stand

GEORG
See, each night, it's like fantastic-
Tossing, turning, without rest
'Cause my days at the piano
With my teacher and her breasts;
And the music's like the one thing
I can even get at all
And those breasts!
I mean, God, please
Just let those apples fall

ALL
It's the bitch of living
(ah, ah, ah)
With nothing going on
(Nothing going on)
Just the bitch of living
Asking: what went wrong?

Do they think we want this?
Oh- who knows?

ERNST
See, there's showering in gym class...

HANSCHEN
Bobby Maler, he's the best
Looks so nasty in those khakis

ERNST
God, my whole life's like some test

OTTO
Then there's Marianna Wheelan
As if she'd return my call

HANSCHEN
It's like just kiss some ass, man
Then you can screw 'em all

ALL
Alllllllll

MELCHIOR
It's the bitch of living

ALL
It's the bitch of living

MELCHIOR
And living in your head

ALL
In your head
It's the bitch

MELCHIOR
Of living
And sensing God is dead

ALL
It's the bitch of living

MELCHIOR
You watch me-
Just watch me-

ALL
And trying to get ahead

MELCHIOR
I'm calling you one day

ALL
It's the bitch of living
Just getting out of bed

MELCHIOR
All will know

ALL
It's the bitch of living
Living, Living

MELCHIOR
All will know

ALL
And getting what you get
Just the bitch of living

MELCHIOR
And knowing this is it

ALL
God, is this it?
This can't be it
Oh God, what a bitch!
