Craig Lucas - All Things Bright and Beautiful/Bang!/All Things Bright and Beautiful (Part 2) lyrics

[MAN] Here, kid Look I brought you flowers Green, red, blue All things Permanent and perfect For you, kid You I mean, all things bright and beautiful Everything forever, yours, kid Everything forever, all come true [WOMAN] All things bright and beautiful Everything forever all come true [MAN] The war commences The enemy awaits in quivering expectancy The poor defenses The penetrable gates: how terrible to be a woman The time is here The game is there The smell of fear Like musk, pervades the air The bugle sounding The pistol steady The blood is pounding Take aim, and ready Bang! 20 minute small talk 30 at the most Bang! 2 or 3 to pour the schnapps Bang, bang, bang! Half a minute to propose the necessary toast Bang! The tunic opens Bang! The trousers fall Bang! The foe is helpless Back against the wall Bang! An hour and a quarter overall And bang! [WOMAN] 20 minutes to arrange The bloody awful flowers Can I get away with more? Then I half to brush my hair And that could take me hours A fit of vapors No that's too quaint A wracking cough And then a graceful faint A length lecture On self-restraint Bang, bang! Bang, bang! Bang! Bang, bang! Bang! Bang Bang Bang Bang Bang, bang Bang Bang Bang, bang, bang, bang Bang Bang Bang Bang Bang! Bang, bang, bang! Bang Bang Bang, bang Bang, bang Bang Bang Bang, bang, bang Bang Bang Bang Bang [MAN] Bang! Bang, bang, bang! Bang! Bang Bang Bang Bang Bang, bang! The battle rages Whatever ground I gain I fortify Remorselessly The foe engages By shifting the terrain How pitiful to be a woman Attack! Retreat Lay back Reform Outflank Deplete Move up and then restore The siege succeeding The time grows shorter She lies there bleeding I give no quarter Bang! Fire at the elbow; Slavo at the knee Bang! Fuselage at breast and thigh Bang, bang, bang! Then when she's exhausted Bang! A fresh a sortie I taste the conquest The taste is sweet She lays her arms down Welcoming defeat Both sides content Secure Positions All pa**ion spent Discuss Conditions How terrible How pitiful How glorious to be a woman [WOMAN] He is a peaco*k I keep forgetting [MAN] The quarry senses A momentary pang [WOMAN] It's all so foolish Why am I sweating? [MAN] The war commences (spoken) Bang (sung) Wait Kid Every minute flowers Night, noon, day Trust me Anything you want, you just say, kid Say You'll have all things Bright and beautiful Everything forever, ask me Everything forever, every day [WOMAN] All things Bright and beautiful Ben, can we go to Paris? Ben, can we go to London? All things Bright and beautiful Ben, I get so excited I hardly can breath Let them laugh Just don't leave me I'm alright Just don't leave me again And we'll be together Tomorrow And we'll be together On Monday And we'll be together [MAN] Of course we can go to Paris Or London, or Rio You name it Let them laugh I won't leave you I won't leave Never ever again You'll be mine, mine [BOTH] Tomorrow And Monday And April And Christmas And Look, love! Everything is flowers Red, white, pink, green, blue Soon, love! Everywhere I look will be you, love, you And that's all things Bright and beautiful Everything forever, ours, kid Everything we never did we'll do And we'll be together tomorrow And we'll be together on Monday And we'll be together on April And Christmas And next year And always And
