Stephen Sondheim – Ever After Lyrics


NARRATOR
And it came to pass, all that seemed wrong
was now right, and those who deserved to
were certain to live a long and happy life.
Ever after…

COMPANY
Ever after!

NARRATOR
Journey over, all is mended,
And it’s not just for today,
But tomorrow, and extended
Ever after!

COMPANY
Ever after!

NARRATOR
All the curses have been ended,
The reverses wiped away.
All is tenderness and laughter
For forever after!

COMPANY
Happy now and happy hence
And happy ever after!

NARRATOR
There were dangers-

COMPANY
We were frightened-

NARRATOR
And confusions-

COMPANY
But we hid it-

NARRATOR
And the paths would often swerve.

COMPANY
We did not.

NARRATOR
There were constant-

COMPANY
It’s amazing-

NARRATOR
Disillusions-

COMPANY
That we did it.

NARRATOR
But they never lost they’re nerve.

COMPANY
Not a lot.

NARRATOR AND COMPANY
And they/we reached the right conclusions
And they/we got what they/we deserved!

ALL
Not a sigh and not a sorrow,
Tenderness and laughter.
Joy today and bliss tomorrow,
And forever after!

FLORINDA
I was greedy.

LUCINDA
I was vain.

FLORINDA
I was haughty.

LUCINDA
I was smug.

BOTH
We were happy.

LUCINDA
It was fun.

FLORINDA
But we were blind.

BOTH
Then we went into the woods
To get our wish,
And now we’re really blind.

WITCH
I was perfect.
I had everything but beauty.
I had power,
And a daughter like a flower,

In a tower.
Then I went into the woods
To get my wish,
And now I’m ordinary.
Lost my power and my flower.

FLORINDA AND LUCINDA
We’re unworthy.

FLORINDA, LUCINDA, WITCH
We’re/I’m unhappy now, unhappy hence,
As well as ever after.
Had we used our common sense,
Been worthy of our discontents,
We’d be happy.

ALL
To be happy, and forever,
You must see your wish come true.
Don’t be careful, don’t be clever.
When you see your wish, pursue.
It’s a dangerous endeavor,
But the only thing to do-

Though it’s fearful,
Though it’s deep, though it’s dark,
And though you may lose your path,
Though you may encounter wolves,
You mustn’t stop,
You mustn’t swerve,
You mustn’t ponder,
You have to act!
When you know your wish,
If you want your wish,
You can have your wish,-
No, to get your wish

You go into the woods,
Where nothing’s clear,
Where witches, ghosts
And wolves appear.
Into the woods
And through the fear,
You have to take the journey.

Into the woods
And down the dell,
In vain, perhaps,
But who can tell?
Into the woods to lift the spell,
Into the woods to lose the longing,
Into the woods to have the child,
To wed the Prince,
To get the money,
to save the house,
To kill the Wolf,
To find the father,
To conquer the kingdom,
To have, to wed,
To get, to save,
To kill, to keep,
To go to the festival!

Into the woods,
Into the woods,
Into the woods,
Then out of the woods
And happy ever after!

NARRATOR

Joseph’s luck was really out
His spirit and his fortune low
Alone he sat, alone he thought
Of happy times he used to know

1st MAN
Hey dreamer, don’t be so upset

2nd MAN
Hey Joseph, you’re not beaten yet

NARRATOR+ENSEMBLE
Go, go go joseph you know what they say
Hang on now joseph you’ll make it some day
Don’t give up joseph, fight till you drop
We’ve read the book and you come out on top

NARRATOR
Now into joseph’s prison cell
Were flung two very frightened men

BAKER+BUTLER
We don’t think that we will ever
See the light of day again
Hey joseph, help us if you can
We’ve had dreams that we don’t understand

NARRATOR+ENSEMBLE
Both men were servants of pharaoh the king
Both in the doghouse for doing their thing

NARRATOR
One was a baker, a cook in his prime
One was a butler, the jeeves of his time

JOSEPH
Tell me of your dreams my friends
And i will tell you what they show
Though i cannot guarantee
To get it right, i’ll have a go

NARRATOR
First the butler, trembling, took the floor
Nervously he spoke of what he saw

BUTLER
There i was standing in front of a vine
I picked some grapes and i crushed them to wine
I gave some to pharaoh who drank from my cup
I tried to interpret but i had to give up

JOSEPH
You will soon be free, my friend
So do not worry any more
The king will let you out of here
You’ll butle as you did before

NARRATOR
Next the baker rose to tell his dream
Hoping it would have a similar theme

BAKER
There i was standing with baskets of bread
High in the sky i saw birds overhead
Who flew to my baskets and ate every slice
Now give me the message – like his, would be nice

JOSEPH
Sad to say your dream is not
The kind of dream i’d like to get
Pharaoh has it in for you
Your execution date is set
Don’t rely on all i said i saw
It’s just that i have not been wrong before

ENSEMBLE
Go, go, go joseph you know what they say
Hang on now joseph you’ll make it some day
Shalala joseph you’re doing fine
You and your dreamcoat ahead of your time

Go, go, go joseph you know what they say
Hang on now joseph you’ll make it some day
Shalala joseph you’re doing fine
You and your dreamcoat ahead of your time
Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go

Joseph you know what they say
Hang on now joseph you’ll make it some day
Shalala joseph you’re doing fine
You and your dreamcoat ahead of your time

Go, go, go, go, go, go, go
Joseph you know what they say
Hang on now joseph you’ll make it some day
Shalala joseph you’re doing fine
You and your dreamcoat ahead of your time

NARRATOR
Ahead of your time
JOSEPH
Ahead of my time

NARRATOR
Ahead of your time

JOSEPH
Ahead of my

ALL
Time
