Team StarKid - Dream A Little Harder lyrics

Ja'far: I look around the kingdom And see the desperation And the devastation that persists No matter what I do But today could be the day I finally make a difference And all the grateful citizens Will say to me... Citizens: (Alternating) f** you! f** you! f** you! f** you! f** you! (Dialogue) Male Citizen: Why don't we have enough to eat? Baker: Why are we dying in the street? Mother: Why does my baby always cry? Orphan: Why did my mommy have to die? Citizens: (Alternating) Mine too Mine too Mine too Mine too Mine too Male Citizen: The answer here Is crystal clear Ja'far, that ugly old vizier He's the reason for our many woes Optimistic Citizen: Though we're upset We shouldn't fret We mustn't let ourselves forget The saying every child raised within the kingdom knows: You got to dream a little harder When life won't go your way Simply dream a little harder Trust me when I say That when you dream little harder You're sure to follow through Cause if you're good and you're attractive No need to be proactive Citizens: Good things will just happen to you (Dialogue) Baker: Why is the kingdom plagued by theft? Librarian: Why are there no more good jobs left? Mother: Why does the sun go down at night? Orphan: Why is everyone in the kingdom white? Librarian: (Spoken) Um, Ja'far? Citizens: (Alternating) Ja'far! Ja'far! Ja'far! Male Citizen: No man who's just Could ever trust A face that triggers such disgust Mother: His twisted features give me such a chill Optimistic Citizen: So let us pray That one fine day That evil man will go away Citizens: 'Cause if we want it bad enough, he will Optimistic Citizen: For if you... Male Citizen 2: ...dream a little harder Optimistic Citizen: You'll get what you desire Female Citizen: Dream a little harder Optimistic Citizen: When things are looking dire If you dream a little harder Success is guaranteed If you are sure of your intention Some magic intervention Citizens: Will give you the edge that you need (Dialogue) Ja'far: I know that I'm no prize I'm not so easy on the eyes I can't rely on looks to get me by But ugliness permits A man to use his wits Cause pretty people never have to try I hear the people whisper As I walk about the streets I know they call me Citizens: Ugly old Ja'far! Ja'far: What I call planning They call scheming What I call delusion They call dreaming Why am I the only one Who sees things as they are? Citizens: Wish a little stronger... Belle: I need six eggs Ja'far: Why not buy some? Citizens: Hope a little bigger... Baker I want to fly Ja'far: That's unrealistic Citizens: Think a little louder... Librarian: I want to be a cat Ja'far: (Spoken) What? Librarian: (Spoken) f** you Citizens: Whistle while you swallow A spoon full of sugar And your dream will come true Upon a star... Male Citizen: Dream hard enough, my friend Ja'far will meet a violent end He could be skewered by a sailing ship Male Citizen 2: Or hanged in tangled jungle vines Optimistic Citizen: Or eaten by hyenas Baker: Or he'll plummet to his d**h From a castle Male Citizen: A clock Citizens: Or a cliff And if we dream a little harder... Our patience and our honor Will rid us of that ugly old Ja'far! Male Citizen: f** you!
