Original Broadway Cast – Happy New Year lyrics

MIMI
How long til next year?
ROGER
Three and a half minutes. . .
MIMI
I'm giving up my vices
I'm going back, back to school
Eviction or not
This week's be so hot
That long as I got you
I know I'll be cool
I couldn't crack the love code, dear
'Til you made the lock on my heart explode
It's gonna be a happy New Year
A happy New Year
MARK
Coast is clear
You're supposed to be working
That's for midnight
Where are they?
There isn't much time
MIMI
Maybe they're dressing
I mean what does one wear thats apropos
For a party - That's also a crime
MAUREEN
Chips, anyone?
MARK
You can take the girl out of Hicksville
But you can't take the Hicksville out of the girl
MAUREEN
My riot got you on TV
I deserve a royalty
MIMI
Be nice you two
Or no God awful champagne
MAUREEN
Don' t mind if I do
No luck?
ROGER
Bolted plywood, padlocked with a chain
A total dead end
MAUREEN
Just like my ex-girlfriend
Honey. . .?
I know you're there. . .
Please pick up the phone
Are you okay?
It's not funny
It's not fair
How can I atone?
Are you okay?
I lose control
But I learn to behave
Give me one more chance
Let me be your slave
I'll kiss your Doc Martens
Let me kiss your doc Martens
Your every wish I will obey
JOANNE
That might be okay
Down girl
Heel. . .Stay
I did a bit of research
With my friends at Legal Aid
Technically, you're squatters
There's hop
But just in case
MARK & JOANNE
Rope!
MARK
We can hoist a line--
JOANNE
To the fire escape--
MARK
And tie off at
MARK & JOANNE
That bench!
MAUREEN
I can't take them as chums
JOANNE
Start hoisting. . .Wench
ROGER
I think I should be laughing
Yet I forget
Forget how to begin
I'm feeling something inside
And yet I still can't decide
If I should hide
Or make a wide open grin
Last week I wanted just to disappear
My life was dust
But now it just may be a happy New Year
A happy New Year
COLLINS
Bond - James Bond
ANGEL
And Pussy Galore - in person
MIMI
Pussy - You came prepared
ANGEL
I was a boy scout once
And a brownie
'Til some brat got scared
COLLINS
Aha! Moneypenny - My martini!
MIMI
Will bad champagne do?
COLLINS
That's shaken - not stirred
COLLINS
Pussy - The bolts
ANGEL
Just say the word!
MIMI
Two minutes left to execute our plan
COLLINS
Where's everyone else?
ROGER
Playing Spiderman
MARK
Ironic close up:
Tight on the phone machine's red light
Once the boho boys are gone
The power mysteriously comes on
