Tuck Everlasting - Everything's Golden Lyrics

A New Broadway Musical (2016)
Tuck Everlasting the Musical - Everything's Golden Lyrics

Song from the musical 'Tuck Everlasting' performed by Terrence Mann (Man in the Yellow Suit), Ensemble.

The Man in the Yellow Suit:
(spoken) It's water and it's in the wood! (Laughs)

(sung) Look who has a spring in his step
It's true there's a bounce in each toe
This has-been feels young again
Just when he was used to feeling old

Fella, take a look at my suit
Yellow has acquired a glow
Fleabags can laugh and joke
These rags will be spinning into gold

Golden like the sun rising in the east
Golden with that brand new day shine - hey!
Golden like the years it took to get me here
Soon everything's golden and everything's mine!

(Spoken) Soon, I'm gonna be the richest son of a gun there ever was!
(Carnies laugh) Who wouldn't pay a fortune for a sip of forever?

(Sung) Nutshell: when the water is mine
Don't tell me you wouldn't buy
My merchandise! I'll name the price
And make a killing making sure you will never die.

My purpose, my plan, my whole raison d'être:
Strike it rich, rule the world, et cetera, et cetera!
And of course become immortal somewhere 'long the way!
I'll be -

Carnies:
Golden like the sun!

The Man in the Yellow Suit:
Oh, golden like my suit
Golden with that brand new day shine

Carnies:
Brand new day shine!

The Man in the Yellow Suit:
Hey! Golden like the years it took to get me here
Soon -

The Man in the Yellow Suit and Carnies:
Everything's golden!

The Man in the Yellow Suit:
And everything's mine! (Spoken) C'mon, ladies. One last dance before I make my millions!

(Dance break)

Carnies:
Everything's golden!

The Man in the Yellow Suit:
Golden like the sun!

Carnies:
Everything's golden!

The Man in the Yellow Suit:
Golden like my suit!

Carnies:
Everything's golden!

The Man in the Yellow Suit:
Golden like that brand new day shine!

Carnies:
Everything's golden! Everything's golden!

The Man in the Yellow Suit:
Golden like the years it took to get me here
Soon everything's golden (spoken) Say it!

Carnies:
Everything's golden!

The Man in the Yellow Suit:
Everything's golden!
And everything's -

Carnies:
Mine!

The Man in the Yellow Suit:
Everything's -

Carnies:
Mine!

The Man in the Yellow Suit:
Everything's... MINE!
