Peter Pan

"Peter Pan" remains an enduring favorite for many reasons--perhaps most of all for its ability to turn back time. For, even as it laments the inevitability of growing older, it quietly reverses the aging process, transforming adults into kids who laugh, cry and, when the time comes, clap like crazy to save poor Tinkerbell.

- Daryl H. Miller, Los Angeles Times

Tender Shepherd

MRS. DARLING:

Tender shepherd, tender shepherd
Let me help you count your sheep.
One, in the meadow
Two, in the garden
Three, in the nursery fast asleep.

(Spoken) Fast asleep.

WENDY, JOHN, MICHAEL: (in a round)

Tender shepherd, tender shepherd
Watches over all his sheep
One, say your prayers and
Two, close your eyes and
Three, safe and happily fall asleep.


I Gotta Crow

PETER:

Conceited? Not me!
It's just that I am what I am
And I'm me!
When I look at myself, and I see in myself
All the wonderful things that I see
If I'm pleased with myself
I have every good reason to be!

I gotta crow!
I'm just the cleverest fellow twas ever my fortune to know
I taught a trick to my shadow to stick to the tip of my toe
I gotta crow!

I gotta brag
I think it's sweet to have fingers and feet
I can wiggle and wag
I can climb trees and play tag with the breeze
In the meadows below
I gotta crow!

If I was a very ordinary every-day thing
I'd never be heard
Cock-a-doodling round like a bird

So, naturally
When I discover the cleverness of a remarkable me
How can I hide it when deep down inside it just tickles me so
That I gotta let go and crow!


I'm Flying

PETER:

I'm flying!

Look at me, way up high,
Suddenly, here am I,
I'm Flying!
I'm Flying!

Over bed, over chair,
Duck your head, clear the air,
Oh what lovely fun!
Watch me everyone!
Take a look at me and see how easily it's done
I'm flying!

I fly and I'm all over the place
You try and you fall flat on your face
I'm flying!


The Pirate March (Bloody Buccaneers)

PIRATES:

Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho!
Arrh!

We're bloody buccaneers
And each a murderous crook
We massacre innocents, kill little boys, and cater to Captain Hook
Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho!
The terrible Captain Hook!


Wendy

PETER:

We'll need lots of wood
Need lots of leaves
Need lots of paint
But hush, hush, HUSH, hush, hush.

LOST BOYS, JOHN & MICHAEL:

Let's be quiet as a mouse
And build a lovely little house for Wendy
All for Wendy
She's come to stay
And be our mother! At last we have a mother!

Home sweet home upon the wall
A welcome mat down in the hall for Wendy
So that Wendy
Won't go away
She'll be our mother! At last we have a mother!

Oh, what pleasure she'll bring to us
Make us pockets and sing to us
Tell us stories we've been longing to hear
Over and over
She'll be waiting at the door
We won't be lonely any more since Wendy
Lovely Wendy's here to stay!
Wheee!

DANCE BREAK

Oh, what pleasure she'll bring to us
Make us pockets and sing to us
Tell us stories we've been longing to hear
Over and over
She'll be waiting at the door
We won't be lonely any more since Wendy
Lovely Wendy's here to stay!


I Won't Grow Up

(spoken) PETER:

All right boys, are you ready for today's lesson?

PETER:

I don't wanna go to school.

BOYS:

PETER:

Just to learn to be a parrot

BOYS:

Just to learn to be a parrot

PETER:

And recite a silly rule.

BOYS:

And recite a silly rule.

PETER:

If growing up means it would be
Beneath my dignity to climb a tree

ALL:

I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow u-p
Not me.

BOYS:

PETER:

In the middle of July!

BOYS:

In the middle of July!

PETER:

And if it means I must prepare
To shoulder burdens with a worried air...

ALL:

I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow u-p
Not me!

JOHN & MICHAEL:

Not I.

BOYS:

Not me.

PETER:

So there!
Never gonna be a man...

ALL:

BOYS:

TWINS:

We will never grow a day!

BOYS:

We will never grow a day!

TWINS:

And if someone tries to make us

BOYS:

And if someone tries to make us

TWINS:

We will simply run away!

BOYS:

We will simply run away!

SLIGHTLY:

I won't grow up.

BOYS:

I won't grow up.

SLIGHTLY:

No, I promise that I won't

BOYS:

No, I promise that I won't

SLIGHTLY:

I will stay a boy forever

BOYS:

I will stay a boy forever

PETER:

And be banished if I don't.

BOYS:

And be banished if I don't.

ALL:

And Neverland will always be
The home of youth and joy and liberty!
I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow u-p
Not me, not me, not me, not me, not me...
No, sir!


The Pirate Tango

CAPTAIN HOOK:

We'll cook a cake quite large and fill each layer in between with icing mixed with poisin till it turns a tempting green.
We'll place it near the house just where the boys are sure to come, and, being greedy, they won't care to question such a plumb.
The boys who have no mother sweet, no one to show them their mistake, won't know it's dangerous to eat so damp and rich a cake.

PIRATES:

La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
La laaaaa la laaaaa

CAPTAIN HOOK:

And so before the winking of an eye
Those boys will eat that poison cake and
One by one they'll die!

ALL:

Holay!


Oh My Mysterious Lady

PETER:

Ah ah, ah ah, ah ah, ah ah, ah a-a-a-a-a-ah, ah!

HOOK:

A lady!

PETER:

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah a-a-a-a-ah, ah!

HOOK:

A beautiful lady!

Oh, my mysterious lady, what is your name?
Oh, my mysterious lady, from whence have you came?

PETER:

Ah ah ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah...

HOOK:

Answer my plea, who may ye be?

PETER:

Ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah
A-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a, a-a-a-a-ah, ah!

HOOK:

Oh, my mysterious lady, what is your name?
Take off that veil, and let me see your face
Why hide your beauty beneath that tonne of lace?

PETER:

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

HOOK:

Take off that veil, and let me see your face
Why hide your beauty beneath that tonne of lace?
Take off that veil, and let me see your face
Why hide your beauty beneath that tonne of lace?

PIRATES:

Hey!

HOOK:

What's your secret?

PETER:

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah!

HOOK:

Tell your secret.

PETER:

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah!

HOOK:

Speak, oh speak, oh speak I pray thee,
Tell me, oh tell me thy name.

PETER:

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ahhhhhh... ahhhhhhh...
Ah ah ah ah ah!


The Pirate Tarantella

CAPTAIN HOOK:

Methinks I see a spark, a gleam, a glimmer of a plan
By which perhaps I may redeem me honour as a man
Kidnap Wendy, seize the boys, and you'll have Hook to thank
For when the time is right you'll see the children walk the plank!

PIRATES:

Oh, when was such a princely plot concocted by another
To murder all the boys and keep the Wendy for a mother!
Oh, when was such a princely plot concocted by another
To murder all the boys and keep the Wendy for a mother!

Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho!
Bravo! Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!
To the ship... to the ship... to the ship... to the ship...


Distant Melody

PETER:

Once upon a time and long ago
I heard someone singing soft and low
Now when day is done and night is near
I recall this song I used to hear:

My child, my very own, don't be afraid, you're not alone
Sleep until the dawn, for all is well

Long ago this song was sung to me
Now it's just a distant melody
Somewhere in the past I used to know
Once upon a time and long ago.


Hook's Waltz

(spoken) HOOK:

Who was Bluebeard?

PIRATES:

Nobody!

HOOK:

Who was Nero?

PIRATES:

Nobody!!

HOOK:

Who was Jack the Ripper?

PIRATES:

NOBODY!!!

(sung) HOOK:

Who's the slimiest man in the world?

PIRATES:

Captain Hook! Captain Hook!

HOOK:

Who's the dirtiest dog in this wonderful world?

PIRATES:

Captain Hook! Captain Hook!

HOOK:

Captain of misery
Murder and loot
Eager to kill any who says that my hook isn't cute...

PIRATES:

It's cute!

HOOK:

Who's the slimiest rat in the pack?

PIRATES:

Captain Hook! Captain Hook!

HOOK:

Who's defensible?

PIRATES:

You!

HOOK:

Reprehensible?

PIRATES:

You!

HOOK:

Who's behaviour is just indefensible?

PIRATES:

You!
Who's the crummiest crulest crummiest crookest crook? (crookedest crook)

HOOK:

Pardon me?

PIRATES:

What a prize! What a joy!
Mrs Hook's little baby boy!
The scourge of the sea...

HOOK:

Just little old me...

PIRATES:

Captain Hook!


I Gotta Crow (Reprise)

TIGERLILY, PETER, BLOOD BROTHERS, LOST BOYS:

We're just the cleverest fellows twas ever our fortune to know!

MR DARLING:

Neverland

I have a place where dreams are born and time is never planned
It's not on any chart, you must find it with your heart
Never-neverland.

It might be miles beyond the moon or right there where you stand
Just keep an open mind, and then suddenly you'll find Never-neverland.

You'll have a treasure if you stay there
More precious far than gold
For once you have found your way there
You can never, never grow old

And that's my home where dreams are born, and time is never planned
Just think of lovely things
And your heart will fly on wings
Forever
In Never-neverland.
