Soft Power the Musical - It Just Takes Time Lyrics


XUE XING: (spoken)
In Chinese, there are four tones
Each tone changes the meaning of the word

(sung) The first tone is flat, high-pitched, and floating

HILLARY:
How lovely not to talk about voting

XUE XING:
Xing

HILLARY:
Sing

XUE XING:
Xing

HILLARY:
Sing

XUE XING:

HILLARY:
Sing

XUE XING:

HILLARY:
Sing

XUE XING:
Xing

HILLARY:
Sing

XUE XING:
No, that's not really it
The second tone is low, then rising
Her eyes are green and blue, that's surprising
Xing

HILLARY:
Shwing

XUE XING:
(spoken) That's number one
(sung) Xing

HILLARY:
Shwing

XUE XING:
That's number one again

HILLARY:
Shwing

XUE XING:
Yes!

HILLARY:
Shwing

XUE XING:
One again

HILLARY:
Shwing Shwing Shwing Shwing

XUE XING:
One one one one
And it's Xu, not Shwa

HILLARY:
Shwa, Shwa, Shwing!
No, that's not really it

XUE XING:
It just takes time

HILLARY:
It just takes time?

XUE XING:
It feels so new

HILLARY:
It feels so new for the girl from
Chicago, U.S.A
I've never asked my lips
Never asked my lips, never asked my lips
To go that way

BOTH:
It just takes time

XUE XING:
The third tone starts from a high pitch
Then falls to a low pitch
Then rises to a high pitch again
Xing

HILLARY:
Xing

XUE XING:
Number two

HILLARY:
Xing

XUE XING:
Yes!

HILLARY:
Xing

XUE XING:
Number t—

HILLARY:
Hey! I made law review
I know that was number two

XUE XING:
Xing

HILLARY:
Xing

XUE XING:
Xing

HILLARY:
Xing

XUE XING:
Yes!

HILLARY:
Xing

XUE XING:
No

BOTH:
Xing

HILLARY: (spoken)
Oh, son of a whore!

XUE XING: (spoken)
Mrs. Clinton!

HILLARY:
I'm sorry, how vulgar!

XUE XING:
Say it again

HILLARY:
Son of a whore!

XUE XING:
Just the last word

HILLARY:
Whore!

XUE XING:
Again

HILLARY:
Whore!

XUE XING:
Again!

HILLARY:
Whore!

XUE XING:
That's number four!
(spoken) Yes!

HILLARY:
I must say
I've never asked my lips to go that way

XUE XING:
Just place the tip of your tongue

HILLARY:
It just takes time

XUE XING:
Against the back of your lower teeth

BOTH:
It just takes takes

HILLARY: (spoken)
Xue Xing

XUE XING: (spoken)
Perfect
