They Seek Him Here Lyrics

Broadway 1997
Scarlet Pimpernel the Musical - They Seek Him Here Lyrics

PERCY, spoken:
Would you be so kind?

PERCY:
They seek him here,
they seek him there,
those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
Is he in heaven or is he in hell?
That demned elusive Pimpernel.

[COMPANY applauds]

PERCY, spoken:
More to come, more to come! I said "brief," not "infinitesimal"!

PERCY:
He meddles with the Frenchie Revolution,
popping in and out each week,
spoiling ev'ry lovely execution.
La, what cheek!

They seek him here,
they seek him there,
those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
If you should see him, please do give a yell -
that demned elusive Pimpernel!

WOMAN:
They seek him here!
They seek him there!

PRINCE OF WALES:
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere!

PERCY:
Oh, Pimpy, how the Frenchies do implore you
simply to stay home in bed.
With all your interference, it's a chore
to chop a head!

COMPANY:
They seek him here!
They seek him there!

PERCY:
The ladies seek him everywhere!

PRINCE:
He gives the Frenchies nothing but frustration.
Sink me, he's a spoilsport!
Each and ev'ry demned decapitation
he cuts short!

PERCY, spoken:
Inspired, Highness! Inspired!

PRINCE, spoken:
Quite so!

PERCY, spoken:
Everyone!

COMPANY:
They seek him here!
They seek him there!
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere!
Is he in heaven or is he in hell?
That demned elusive Pimpernel!
