Lyrics

NARRATOR: Once upon a time...
Later
CINDERELLA: I wish...
NARRATOR: In that same far-off kingdom...
CINDERELLA: More than anything...
NARRATOR: Lived a young princess
CINDERELLA: More than life...
NARRATOR: The lad Jack
CINDERELLA: More than footmen...
JACK: I wish...
NARRATOR: And the Baker with his family
JACK: No, I miss...
JACK: More than anything...
BAKER'S WIFE: There, there...
CINDERELLA: I wish to sponsor a festival
BAKER: More than life...
JACK: I miss...
CINDERELLA: The time has come for a festival...
BAKER: More than riches...
CINDERELLA: And a ball!
JACK: I miss my kingdom up in the sky
BAKER'S WIFE: I wish we had more room
JACK: Kingdom...
BAKER: Another room
NARRATOR: But despite some minor inconveniences, they were all quite content
CINDERELLA: I never thought I'd wed a prince
CINDERELLA'S PRINCE: I never thought I'd find perfection
BOTH: I never thought I could be so happy
CINDERELLA: Not an unhappy moment since
C'S PRINCE: Not a conceivable objection
STEPMOTHER: Happy now
Happy hence
Happy ever after
Just as long as you stay happy
We'll stay happy
MOTHER: Pots of pence
JACK: With my cow
C'S PRINCE: Darling, I must go now
MOTHER: We should really sell it
BAKER: Where's the cheesecloth?
ALL: Wishes may bring problems
Such that you regret them
Better that, though
Than to never get them
CINDERELLA: I'm going to be a perfect wife
JACK: I'm going to be a perfect son
BAKER: I'm going to be a perfect father
I'm so happy!
ALL: I never thought I'd love my life
I would have settled for another
CINDERELLA: Then to become a wife...
ALL: That fortune smiled!
I'm so hap-
BAKER: Have you done this to our house?
WITCH: Always thinking of yourself! Look at my garden!
BAKER: Destroyed
BAKER'S WIFE: Who could do such a thing?
BAKER: Do you think it was a bear?
WITCH: A bear? Bears are sweet. Besides, you ever see a bear with forty foot feet?
BAKER'S WIFE: Dragon?
WITCH: No scorch marks. Usually they're linked.
BAKER: Manticore?
WITCH: Imaginary
WITCH: Extinct
BAKER: Giant?
WITCH: Possible... very, very possible...
NARRATOR: More than possible. Their fears would prove to be well founded.
BAKER: Into the woods
It's always when
You think at last
You're through, and then
Into the woods
You go again
To take another journey
BAKER'S WIFE: Into the woods
The weather's clear
We've been before
We've naught to fear
Into the woods
Away from here
JACK: Into the woods to find a giant
LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD: Into the woods to Grandmother's house
BAKER: Into the woods
The path is straight
No reason, then
To hesitate
BAKER'S WIFE: Into the woods
It's not so late
It's just another journey
CINDERELLA: Into the woods
But not too long
The skies are strange
The winds are strong
Into the woods to see what's wrong
JACK: Into the woods
To slay the giant
BAKER'S WIFE: Into the woods
To shield the child
RED: To flee the winds
BAKER: To find a future
BAKER'S WIFE: To shield
JACK: To slay
RED: To flee
BAKER: To find
CINDERELLA: To fix
BAKER'S WIFE: To hide
RED: To move
JACK: To battle
To see wht the trouble is
