Who I'd Be Lyrics - SHREK MUSICAL

Broadway production (2008)
Shrek the Musical - Who I'd Be Lyrics

SHREK:
I guess I'd be a hero, with sword and armour clashing
Looking semi dashing, A shield within my grip
Or else I’d be a Viking, and live a life of daring
While smelling like a herring, upon a Viking ship.
I’d sail away, I’d see the world, I’d reach the farthest reaches
I’d feel the wind, I’d taste the salt and sea.
And maybe storm some beaches.
That’s who I’d be. That’s who I’d be.

Or I could be a poet, and write a different story
One that tells of glory, and wipes away the lies
And to the skies I’d throw it, the stars would do the telling
The moon would help with spelling, and night would dot the ‘I’s
I'd write the verse, recite the joke with with and perfect timing.
I’d share my heart, confess the things I yearn and do it all while rhyming.
But we all learn. But we all learn.

An Ogre always hides, and Ogre's fate is known
An Ogre always stays in the dark and all alone

So yes I'd be a hero and if my wish were granted
Life would be enchanted, or so the stories say.
Of course I’d be a hero, and I would scale a tower
And save a hot-house flower, and carry her away
But standing guard would be a beast, I'd somehow overwhelm it
I’d get the girl, I’d take a breath, and I’d remove my helmet.

We’d stand and stare, we’d speak of love, we’d feel the stars ascending
We’d share a kiss, I’d find my destiny
I’d have a hero’s ending, a perfect happy ending.
That’s how it would be
A big bright beautiful world

But not for me.

FIONA: An ogre always hides. An ogre's fate is known.

FIONA AND SHREK:
An Ogre always stays

DONKEY:
You're all alone

FIONA AND SHREK:
All Alone

(All at the same time)

SHREK:
So yes i'd be a hero,
And if my wish were granted, life would be enchanted or so the stories say
Of course I'd be a hero and I would scale a tower to save a hot-house flower and carry her away!

FIONA:
and I know he'll appear cause there are rules and there are strictures.
I believe the storybooks I read by candlelight

DONKEY:
Don't let me go, Don't let me go, Don't let me go

ALL:
A perfect happy ending, thats how.... it.. should be!
