[RITA HANSON] Sometimes, it's like I'm stumbling forward Hustled forward Jostled from behind by time Sometimes, it's like I'm being dragged Yet always lagging Trying to keep in time with time But if I could stop the clock for just one day If I could freeze a moment for a moment Rest before the measure's over Hold the beat for just one day If I could wind it back and start afresh Just a day to catch my breath To make mistakes and set them right Delay the coming of the night If I had my time again I would do it all the same They say, but that's insane Wouldn't you want to make a couple of changes? Regrets, I'd not even have a few If I could do this thing that you Say you can do. I've always dreamt of learning how to dance [PHIL CONNORS] Some days I go out without pants [RITA] It's so exciting [PHIL] I slept with ninety [RITA] A new beginning [PHIL] Percent of women [RITA] Every morning [PHIL] In Punxsutawney [RITA] To have the time to strive for more [PHIL] Between eighteen and eighty-four And one dude when I was bored [RITA] If I had my time again I'd take the path less trodden Avoid the crap I trod in Read a lot of books [PHIL] I've stolen eighteen million bucks [RITA] And I would worry less about my looks [PHIL] And I guess I'll do it again [RITA] And I would be a lot more zen [PHIL] When [RITA] And I would punch [PHIL] I [RITA] A lot of men [PHIL] Had [RITA] If I had [RITA & PHIL] My time again [RITA] If I had my time again I would do it all the same They claim, that that's ridiculous Surely you'd want to make a couple of fixes? All those boxes left unchecked All the dreams you left neglected You'd go back and put it right I've always fancied learning how to climb [PHIL] I once masturbated seven times [RITA] I'd study math [PHIL] In the bath [RITA] And search for meaning [PHIL] In one evening [RITA] And I'd run up hills [PHIL] It wasn't fun, but still [RITA] I'd learn to paint [PHIL] A man my age [RITA] Just to know [PHIL] It's nice to know [RITA & PHIL] I can [PHIL] It's nice to know I can [RITA] If I had my time again I'd sample all the samples Look at things from different angles I would not do it all the same If I had my time again [RITA & ENSEMBLE] If I had my time again [RITA] The things I'd handle better I would send my unsent letters [PHIL] I've started seven hundred fights [RITA] If I had my time back [PHIL] And if you knew the endless nights That I have wasted getting wasted Contemplating different ways to suicide [RITA] I would write and I would write [PHIL] And I have tried every food and every drink and every cheat And every choice a thousand times [RITA] And I would bring joy to other people's lives [PHIL] And I daily eat about a dozen donuts and I don't know why [RITA] And I would learn piano [PHIL] And I don't know... why? [RITA] And I would make a lot of friends If I had my time [RITA & COMPANY] If I had my time again [RITA] I'd open all the doors I've never looked behind before [PHIL] I've opened all the doors I'd never looked behind before [PHIL] And oh I [RITA] And oh, the thing I'd taste, the things I'd try [PHIL] I find the thing with these revolving rhymes [RITA] And the misery I could prevent [PHIL] They're only fun cause you know they're going to end [RITA] And I will make a lot of friends If I had my time Again [PHIL] Again, I have had it, I have had my time again
