Freaky Friday - Just One Day Lyrics

A new musical based on the classic Mary Rodgers novel and the hit Disney films
FREAKY FRIDAY the Musical - Just One Day Lyrics

Just one day, that's all I need
Just a day without her nagging
Just one day, I beg, I plead
But the drag just keeps on dragging
While I wish for just one Monday or a Friday to be free
Free to slouch and sulk and mumble and be messy and be me
All I ask is for twelve hours to live my life my way
Just one simple, awesome, crazy, kickass day

One more day, she's on my back
She's been riding me forever
On my faults and all I lack
And all I, oh whatever
'Cause I'm lazy and I'm average and I'm sloppy for a start
And I know she'd like a daughter who was pretty,
Thin and smart
And I know she's frickin' perfect,
But I'll never be that way
Not for a single, solitary day

Tomorrow is the wedding and tonight is the rehearsal
And there is no room for error, I mean not one flaw
We've got guests in just ten hours
Dress the tables, trim the flowers
I want beauty and perfection
I want total awe
And with Weddings Magazine here for a feature on the scene here
The business is depending on this one success
Now breathe, but thank you, Torrey
And in fact, that is the story
So get moving, move this produce and remove this mess

Just one day is all I want
With my family united
Fears at bay
No fights, no taunts
Just the four of us delighted
I mean look, I love my kids, I love my work, I love my life
And I love my fiancé and in a day, I'll be his wife
And I'll throw the perfect wedding
And I'll throw the bride's bouquet
And we'll have one happy, loving, family day
"Mother, Fletcher is puppeting me again!"

One more day, she'll fight and fuss
When her joy is all I'm after
It's been a long, tough time for us
Now it's time to hear some laughter
'Cause I only want her happy and well,
Punctual and clean
But she mumbles and she grumbles
and at times she’s outright mean
She's bright and so in cycle,
But those traits aren't on display
Well, not lately, often, ever
Not today

"Ok, really fast. Tonight is The Hunt.
It's an epic scavenger hunt and,
I really wanna win.
There's just one issue..."
Just one day, that's all I seek
And I have been asking nicely
Just one day, it's not a week
It's a night to speak precisely
And The Hunt is not a stunt,
It's my one shot at fame
To be someone who is something,
Not just what's-her-name?
If I'm in it, I can win it
If she'd only say ok
We'd be off and running,
Gunning for one fun and perfect day
"Mom? Mom? MOM!?”

Ellie, dear, it's not the time
No, that apron is a crime
And that sea bass isn't fresh,
It's three days dead
Mom, I really need to know if I can-
Wait, now where'd she go?
God, I'll never draw her focus from the bread


For one...
Do or die...
Crazy day!

What You Got
Oh, Biology
Somebody Has Got to Take the Blame
Watch Your Back
Parents Lie
Just One Day (Reprise)
Not Myself Today
