Once Upon a Mattress the Musical - Shy Lyrics


WINNIFRED:
Hey nonny, nonny is it you?

KNIGHT:
Hey nonny, nonny, nonny no!

WINNIFRED:
Hey nonny, nonny is it you?

ANOTHER KNIGHT:
Hey nonny, nonny, nonny no!

WINNIFRED:
Hey, nonny, nonny is it you,
Or you, or you, or you, or?

DAUNTLESS:
Nenny, nonny, nenny, nenny!!!

QUEEN:
No! No! No!

WINNIFRED:
Someone's being bashful;
That's no way to be, not with me.
Can't you see
That I am just as embarrassed as you?
And I can understand your point of view.
I've always been? Shy!!
I confess it, I'm shy!
Can't you guess that this confident air
Is just a mask that I wear 'cause I'm shy?
And you may be sure
Way down deep I'm demure,
Though some people I know might deny
It at bottom I'm quiet and pure!
I'm aware that it's wrong
To be meek as I am;
My chances may pass me by.

I pretend to be strong,
But as weak as I am,
All I can do is try.
God knows I? try!
Though I'm frightened and shy!
And despite the impression I give
I confess that I'm living a lie?
Because I'm actually terribly timid,
And horribly shy?

Though a lady may be dripping with glamour,
As often as not she'll stumble
And stammer when suddenly
Confronted with romance.
And she's likely to fall of her face
When she's finally face-to-face
With a pair of pants.
Quite often the lady's not as hard
To please as she seems.
Quite often she'll settle for something less
Than the man of her dreams?
I'm going fishing for a mate!

KNIGHTS:
She's going fishing for a mate?

WINNIFRED:
I'm going to look in every brook!

KNIGHTS:
She's going to look in every brook?

WINNIFRED:
But how must longer must
I wait with baited breath and hook?

Oh! That was wonderful!
And that is why,
Though 'm painfully shy,
I'm insane to know which sir?
you, sir?

KNIGHTS:
Not I, sir!

WINNIFRED:
Then who, sir?
Where, sir, and when, sir,
I couldn't be tenser
So let's get this done,
Man get on with the fun, man,
I am one man?

KNIGHTS:
The lady is one man?

WINNIFRED & KNIGHTS:
Shy!
