Musicals – Sunset Boulevard - Eternal Youth Is Worth A Little Suffering lyrics

ASTROLOGER
I don't think you should shoot before July 15th
Right now is a perilous time for Pisces
If you want 'til Venus is in Capricorn
You'll avoid a catalogue of crises

MASSEUR 1
I need three more weeks to get these thighs in shape
No more carbohydrates, don't be naughty

MASSEUR 2
We'll soon have you skipping like an ingenue
You won't look a day over forty

BEAUTICIAN 1
We have dry heat, we have steam

BEAUTICIAN 2
We have moisturizing cream

BEAUTICIAN 3
We had mud-packs, we have blood sacks

BEAUTICIAN 2
It's a rigorous regime

ALL
Not a wrinkle when you twinkle
Or a wobble when you walk

BEAUTICIAN 3
Of course, there's bound to be a little suffering

ALL
Eternal youth is worth a little suffering

ANALYST
Listen to your super ego not your id
Age is just another damn neurosis
I'll have you regressing back to infancy
And back into the womb under hypnosis

DOCTOR
I inject the tissue of the fetal lamb
The forumla's the one Somerset Maugham owns
Just modest course of thirty-sevent shots
And you will be a heaving mass of hormones

ALL
No more crow's feet, no more flab
No more love handles to grab
You'll be so thin they'll all think you're
Walking sideways like a crab
Nothing sagging, nothing bagging
Nothing dragging on the floor

Of course, there's bound to be a little suffering
Eternal youth is worth a little suffering
Of course, there's bound to be a little suffering
Eternal youth is worth a little suffering
Of course, there's bound to be a little suffering...
