TRACY
Hey mama hey mama,
Look around
Everybody's groovin' to a brand new sound
Hey mama hey mama,
Follow me
1 know something's in you
That you wanna set free
So let so, go, go of the past now
Say hello to the love in your heart
Yes, 1 know that the world's spinning fast now
You gotta get yourself a brand new start

TRACY, DYNAMITES & ENSEMBLE
Hey mama, welcome to the 60's
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh mama, welcome to the 60's
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Go mama, go, go, go!

DYNAMITES & ENSEMBLE
Welcome to the 60's
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Hey mama
Yeah, yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah

TRACY
Hey mama, hey mama,
Take my hand

EDNA
First let's make a pit stop
At the wiener stand

TRACY
Hey mama, hey mama,
Take a chance

EDNA
Oh Tracy, it's been years
Since someone asked me to dance

TRACY
So let go, so, go of the past now
Say hello to the light in your eyes
Yes, I know that the world's
Spinning fast now
But you gotta run the race
To win the prize

TRACY, DYNAMITES &, ENSEMBLE
Hey mama, welcome to the 60's
Oh, oh, oh, oh. Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh mama, welcome to the 60's
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Go mama, go, go, go!

DYNAMITES & ENSEMBLE
Welcome to the 60's
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Hey mama
Yeah, yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah

(Tracy & Edna arrive at Mr. Pinky's Hefty Hideaway
As new fans besiege Tracy for photos and autographs.)

DYNAMITES
Welcome to the rhythm of a brand new day

TRACY
Take your old-fashioned fears

TRACY & DYNAMITES
And just throw them away

MR. PINKY'S STAFF
You should add some color and a fresh new "do"

DYNAMITES & ENSEMBLE
'Cause it's time for a star
Who looks just like you!

JUDINE
Don'tcha let nobody
Try to steal your fun
'Cause a little touch of lipstick
Never hurt no one

KAMILAH
The future's got a million roads
For you to choose
But you'll walk a little taller
In some high-heel shoes

SHAYNA
And once you find the style
That makes you feel like you
Something fresh
Something new

DYNAMITES & ENSEMBLE
Step on out
Hear us shout

TRACY, DYNAMITES & ENSEMBLE
Mama, that's your cue!

ENSEMBLE
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

(Edna emerges from Mr. Pinky's Hefty Hideaway all brand new.)

EDNA
Hey Tracy, hey baby,
Look at me!
I'm the cutest chickie
That ya ever did see

Hey Tracy, hey baby,
Look at us
Where is there a team
That's half as fabulous!

(Tracy takes her turn in "Mr. Pinky's".)

EDNA (& ENSEMBLE)
I let go, go. Go of the past now
Said hello to this red carpet ride
Yes 1 know that the world's spinning fast now
Tell Lollobrigida to step aside!

EDNA & ENSEMBLE
Your mama's welcoming the 60's
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh. Oh, oh, oh
Oh your mama's welcoming the 60's
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Go, mama, go, go, go!

ENSEMBLE
Welcome to the 60's
Open the door
For the girl who has more,
She's a star...
Tracy, go, go, go!

(Tracy re-enters in a matching outfit.)

ALL
Oh mama, welcome to the 60's
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh. Oh, oh
Oh mama, welcome to the 60's
Oh, oh. Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh. Oh
Go mama. Go, go, go!

Hey mama welcome to the 60's

KAMILAH
Welcome to the "6", to the "0"
To the apostrophe "s"!

ALL
Hey mama welcome to the 60's

(JUDINE riffs.)

ALL
Hey mama welcome to the 60's

(SHAYNA riffs.)

ALL
Welcome to the 60's
Go mama go, go, go!

DYNAMITES
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh. Oh, oh
Oh, oh. Oh, oh, oh
Go mama, go, go, go!
