Bonnie & Clyde the Musical - This World Will Remember Me Lyrics

The men in this town
Live and die and are forgotten
And it doesn't seem to scare 'em.
I can't wait to get away.

Away from the drought
And the homeless and the hungry
Where they talk
About foreclosures
Every hot and dusty day.

I don't intend to waste
My life 'round here.
I got it all mapped out.
If I can pull just three jobs a year
I'll be rich,
I'll have wealth and fame
Everyone will know my name.

BONNIE (Spoken):
"Pull three jobs?" What does that mean?

CLYDE (Spoken):
What do you think it means?

Just like Billy the Kid
And mister Capone
Every kid will idolize Clyde Barrow.
One thing young lady I guarantee
Is that this world will remember me.

Don't you think it's time
That you lost that egg-stained apron
And wore somethin' made of satin
From a fine Manhattan store?
Yes I can see you
In a car with your own driver.
You are headed to your penthouse
That will overlook the shore.

Your face should be up on that silver screen.
You got that "It Girl" look.

I can't believe that you see that in me.
I always knew I'd be a star,
How intelligent you are!

We are wasted 'round here
We're too good for this place.
We weren't born to live
And die in Texas!
This is my plan- there's no plan B
And this world will remember me.
You and this world will remember me!

This World Will Remember Me
You're Going Back to Jail
How 'bout a Dance
When I Drive
God's Arms Are Always Open
You Can Do Better Than Him
You Love Who You Love
Raise a Little Hell
This World Will Remember Us
Made in America
Too Late to Turn Back Now
That's What You Call a Dream
What Was Good Enough for You
Raise a Little Hell (Reprise)
Dyin' Ain't So Bad
Dyin' Ain't So Bad (Reprise)
How 'bout a Dance (Reprise)
This Never Happened Before
