I can't believe it!
It couldn't be happening!
Pinch me girls!
It couldn't be happening!
All of a sudden success coming out of the blue!

I put a sign up
Right in the front window
An advertisement
Right in the front window
Stop in and see the amazing new plant "Audrey II"

And the really remarkable thing is that people they do

Seymour, that twerp of a clutz,
Finally did something right
Audrey II drives him nuts
What a blessing this wonderful plant should exist
And should rake in the bucks for me hand over fist!

"How'd I do?"

"Who'da believed it?"

One day he pushed a broom
Nothing in his news but gloom and doom
Then he lit a fuse and give him room
Stand aside watch that mothah blow
Explosion! Bang! Kerboom!
Don't it go to show ya never know?

Seymour was in a funk
He was number zero
Who'da thunk he'd become a hero?
Just a punk, he was a forgotten so-and-so
Then one day-Crash! Kerplunk!
Don't it go to show ya never know?

All the world used to screw him
Biff-wham-pow! Now they interview him
And they clamor to put his remarks
On the air
All the world used to hate him
Now they're startin' t'appreciate him
All because of that strange little plant
Over there

Observe him! Here's a chap
Everything is landing in his lap
(I just cut my hand and in a snap
Something out of Edgar Allen Poe has happened) Zam! Kazap!
Don't it go to show ya never know?

One day you're slinging hash
Feeling so rejected
Lightning flash, you get resurrected
Make a splash-now you rate the big
Bravissimo
And with a thunderclash-
Crash kerplunk, bam kerboom,
Zang kazunk, zam kazoom
Zowee powee holy cow he
Ordered up a rainbow to go
Wow! Pow! Lookout below!
Don't it go to show ya never know?
