Oh, the thinks you can think
If you're willing to try...
Think invisible ink!

Lining up to get loose
Oh, the thinks you can think 
When you think about

To dance a jig upon the green

Where have all the good men gone

Upon a fiery steed
Late at night, I toss and I turn
And I dream of what I need

Fast:
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
He's gotta be strong
And he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight

He's gotta be sure
And it's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life

Key of E. Notes on “My sneer could curd-le dair-y” are E E E E-E D#-C#.

I'm malicious, mean and scary
My sneer could curdle dairy

But despite my evil look
And my temper, and my hook
I've always yearned to be a concert pianist

Can'tcha see me on the stage performin' Mozart?
Tickling the ivories 'til they gleam?
Yep, I'd rather be called deadly
For my killer show-tune medley
Thank you!
'Cause way down deep inside
I've got a dream

"Welcome home, son, welcome home to Santa Fe!"

Key of G. Starting notes on “Til the mo-ment I found you” are B C D-G A B G
Note: key is somewhat flexible, & can be changed for performance

Till the moment I found you
I thought I knew what love was
Now I'm learning what is true
That love will do what it does
The world finds ways to sting you
And then one day decides to bring you

Something to believe in
For even a night
One night may be forever
But that's all right
That's all right

And if you're gone tomorrow
What was ours still will be
I have something to believe in
Now that I know you believe in me
