My favourite songs and lyrics from Cinderella :)

My favourite songs and lyrics from Cinderella :)

On the 22nd of August I went to see Andrew Lloyd Webbers new musical Cinderella starring Carrie Hope Fletcher which was so so amazing!! It was so nice to be back in a theatre and see a show and I absolutely loved it 🙂 I have done quite a few posts about some of my favourite songs and lyrics from musicals so I thought since this was the first new show I have seen in over a year I would write a post about some of my favourites from this musical 🙂

Some of my favourite songs:

  • Bad Cinderella
  • So Long
  • Only You Lonely You
  • Beauty has a price
  • I know I have a heart
  • Far Too Late
  • Cinderellas Soliloquy
  • Finale

Some of my favourite lyrics:

  • They call me a wretch, a witch, well, choose one. Every fairytale, for sure, can use one- Bad Cinderella
  • How I’ve missed Cinderella, That’s a total surprise, Not at all what I expected. If I kissed Cinderella, She might blacken my eyes- So Long
  • So long, farewell, It’s really been swell, Have a nice life, Good luck with your wife- So Long (reprise)
  • I’m sky-high and I long to show you, My whole world is altered Yet, I don’t say a thing, Only you Lonely you, Show me how my lonely heart can sing- Only You Lonely You
  • Just like that goddess from Greece, you know, who launched all the ships, So when men stare in my eyes it’s like a solar еclipse- Beauty has a price
  • Buckle up, don’t forget, beauty isn’t cheap, It can cost you all you own and your beauty sleep- Beauty has a Price
  • Like a damsel in distress, In a torn party dress. Someone I never met, I was pretending. Should have known all along, That I need to be strong. For a girl who’s like me, There’s no happy ending- I know I have a Heart
  • If I could, I would somehow turn the clock back, And this heartache I create, But it’s far too late- Far Too Late
  • Look at me, Cinderella, with the wind in my sails, I will never look behind me, You won’t see Cinderella, I’ll be off blazing trails, Where no one I know can find me- Cinderellas Soliloquy

Let me know in the comments if you have been to see Cinderella yet 🙂

My favourite lyrics from The Prom :)

My favourite lyrics from The Prom :)

While re-reading all of my old musical theatre lyrics posts I realised that none of them included lyrics from Beetlejuice or The Prom which are now two of my favourite musicals so I thought that I would write out some of my favourite lyrics from the Prom this week and then in a few weeks time I will write about Beetlejuice 🙂

  1. I just wanna dance with you, let the whole world melt away and dance with you- Dance with you
  2. Improve all of your strong points, And hide things that you lack, Cause mom’s convinced if you’re perfect, Your father will might come back- Alyssa Greene
  3. I can guess your whole agenda, You be Elphie, I’m Glinda, It’s makeover time so why not just give in- Tonight Belongs to you
  4. One thing’s universal, Life’s no dress rehearsal, So why not make some waves before it’s through- Tonight Belongs to you
  5. So hear my plea, Or here’s your next dilemma, How do you silence a woman who’s known for her belt?- Its not about me
  6. Try journaling, Or start a blog, Just end this inner monologue, Seethe, if you must, But just breathe- Just Breathe
  7. Not to oversimplify, But the scripture does imply, That your mom will have to die, How’s tomorrow if she’s not got any plans?- Love Thy Neighbour
  8. Make people see how the world could one day be, It might come true if we take a chance, But ’til that day comes, I say cue the drums And take to the floor That’s what the floor’s for- Its time to Dance
  9. But I promise with some time, That my aptitude will climb, And you’ll leave your doubts, And disbeliefs behind!- The Ladys Improving
  10. There’s not one subject that I could pass, Before you walked into my Spanish class, Was my heart pounding? I won’t say no, ‘Cause life without you was no bueno- You Happened

Let me know in the comments if you have seen The Prom either in person or on Netflix and what your favourite song is from the musical 🙂

  3. Got a smile on my face, love my reflection, In a better place, no longer stressing- Happiness

  5. I’ll be good all by myself, Yeah, I’ll find a way to dance without you, In the middle of the crowd, I’ll forget all of the pain inside- Holiday
  6. I’ve been tryna be the bigger person, But it’s hard when I’ve been feelin’ so small, And nobody knows- A Mess (Happy 4 u)
  7. Yeah, I know you’ve been losin’ the fight, You been knocked down a million times, Screamin’ out, you don’t know what to do, That’s when I’ll be right next to you- My Love Wont Let you Down

Since watching Hamilton on Disney+ I have been on a Lin Manual Miranda binge and have rediscovered my love of In the Heights and have been marvelling at how clever the lyrics from this show are 🙂

  9. When you have a problem you come home, You don’t go off and make matters worse on your own- Enough
  10. If it happened on this block, Abuela was there, Every afternoon I came She’d make sure I did my homework, She could barely write her name, But even so she would stare at the paper and tell me, “Bueno, Let’s review. Why don’t you tell me everything you know?”- Everything I know
