Tuck Everlasting - Partner in Crime Lyrics

A New Broadway Musical (2016)
Tuck Everlasting the Musical - Partner in Crime Lyrics

Song from the musical 'Tuck Everlasting' performed by Sarah Charles Lewis (Winnie), Andrew Keenan-Bolger (Jesse), Ensemble.

JESSE:
The Pyramids, The Brooklyn Bridge, The Rio Grande, The Rhine
I've seen the seven wonders of the world...
Can't wait for eight and nine
But because of my predicament, my peculiar situation
To keep my profile low, low, low
I'm a one man operation

WINNIE:
Jesse! I've got it!
You need a partner in crime
Someone to share in the view
Why see all of the world and all of its glories
Without a friend to tell your stories to?

JESSE:
Someone to stand at my side
Two extra fists In a fight!
Why should the road be long and lonely?

WINNIE:
Why not team up?

BOTH:
We've only got tonight!

JESSE:
If no one's there to hear it,
does a falling tree make sound?

WINNIE:
Are we heard or seen or anything
without a friend around?

JESSE:
The old Great Wall, the Taj Mahal,
yes, they all have merit

WINNIE:
But this traveling fair could take the cake
because you get to share it!

JESSE:
Carrot?

WINNIE (with Jesse):
You need a partner in crime (I need a partner in crime)
Someone to share in a laugh (someone to share in a laugh)
Running a race without a pace setter

JESSE:
I'm out of place

BOTH:
Without my better half!

WINNIE:
With you

JESSE:
The fun is two-for-one

WINNIE:
And a choc full of surprises!
With you the line moves twice as fast

BOTH:
And no one realizes

JESSE:
To do whatever we do now will merit reminiscing

BOTH:
With two I finally feel somehow
that something isn't missing

BOTH (with ensemble):
I have a partner in crime (a partner in crime)
someone to share in the view

ALL:
Why see the world and all of its glories
without a friend to tell your stories to?

ENSEMBLE:
Last night for fun at the fair
Sun's setting
Tomorrow we're gone

ALL:
You need a partner, a partner in crime
Two extra fists in a fight
Stuck in a sticky situation?
Lucky the trick's collaboration
Why should the road be long and lonely?

JESSE & WINNIE:
We've only got tonight!

ENSEMBLE:
Last night for fun at the fair

JESSE & WINNIE:
A partner in crime!

ENSEMBLE:
Sun's setting
Tomorrow we're gone

ALL:
My partner in crime!
