I've seen fire and I've seen rain 2

What will it take to show you
That it’s not the life it seems? (I’m not okay)
I’ve told you time and time again
You sing the words but don’t know what it means (I’m not okay)

You’ve been telling me you’re a genius since you were seventeen
In all the time I’ve known you I still don’t know what you mean
The weekend at the college didn’t turn out like you planned
The things that pass for knowledge I can’t understand

There’s holmium and helium and hafnium and erbium
And phosphorus and francium and fluorine and ytterbium
And manganese and mercury, molybdenum, magnesium
Dyprosium and scandium and cerium and cesium
And lead, praseodymium and platinum, plutonium
Palladium, promethium, potassium, polonium
And tantalum, technetium, titanium, tellurium
And cadmium and calcium and chromium and curium

Huh-huh!
When I’m dancing close to her
(Blinding me with science - science!)
“Science!”
I can smell the chemicals
(Blinding me with science - science!)
“Science!”

Running in circles, coming up tails
Heads on a science apart
Nobody said it was easy
It’s such a shame for us to part

Everybody’s running and no one makes a move
Everybody’s a winner and nothing left to lose
There’s a little yellow idol to the north of Kathmandu
Everybody’s flying and no one leaves the ground
Everybody’s crying and no one makes a sound
There’s a place for us in movies, you just gotta lay around

Nobody told me there’d be days like these
Nobody told me there’d be days like these
Nobody told me there’d be days like these
Strange days indeed
Most peculiar mama

Never could believe the things you do to me,
Never could believe the way you are.
Every day I bless the day that you got through to me,
'Cause baby, I believe that you’re a star.

Everyone’s a winner, baby, that’s the truth (yes, the truth)
Making love to you is such a thrill.
Everyone’s a winner, baby, that’s no lie (yes, no lie)
You never fail to satisfy (satisfy)

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose
And most times you choose between the two
Wonderin’, wonderin’ if you have made it

Did you ever have to make up your mind?
You pick up on one and leave the other behind
It’s not often easy and not often kind
Did you ever have to make up your mind?

Now our Neil must decide
Who will be the girl he casts aside
Will Betty be the one who he loves truly
Or will it be the one who we’ll call…Lulie

He MUST decide, he MUST decide
even though I made him up he Must decide…

Ladies and gentlemen, I take pride in introducing
The Greatest Show on Earth
Liza Elliott’s gargantuan three-ring circus
Featuring for the first time
The captivating and tantalizing Liza Elliott
The woman who cannot make up her mind!

We’re Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
We hope you will enjoy the show
Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
Sit back and let the evening go

I don’t really need to tell you where that’s from, do I?

They’re Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans
She’s got them and it’s time to go
Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans
The Empire doesn’t even know
Princess Leia’s stolen
Princess Leia’s stolen
Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans

Love when you can
Cry when you have to
Be who you must
That’s a part of the plan
Await your arrival
With simple survival and
One day, we’ll all understand
One day, we’ll all understand
One day, we’ll all understand

(Not in play: The “Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans” album is truly brilliant. :smiley: )

You don’t get me, I’m part of the union
You don’t get me, I’m part of the union
You don’t get me, I’m part of the union
Til the day I die
Til the day I die
