Seussical The Musical – All For You lyrics

GERTRUDE
I had a little trouble
'Cause I grew a little tail.
Well, it wasn't really little.
It was absolutely giant!
And it really was attractive
But you never even noticed,
So I felt a little silly even trying
Besides which the tail was too heavy
For normal flying.

HORTON
Go on.

GERTRUDE
Well, when the hunters caught you
I could see that I'd been foolish
'Cause I couldn't even help you
No, I couldn't even fly.
And I got so very frightened
'Cause I knew I had to save you.
No one else was gonna go to all the labor.
It was all up to me,
All you had was your next door neighbor.


GERTRUDE
So I ran to the doctor.

CAT AS DR. DAKE
The doctor named Dake.
And she said.-

GERTRUDE
My tail has been a mistake!

CAT AS DR. DAKE
And she said:

GERTRUDE
Dr. Dake, I've been foolish and vain.

Pluck it out! Get it off!
I won't do it again!

CAT AS DR. DAKE
Pluck! Pluck! Pluck!

GERTRUDE
Ouch, it hurt a lot!

CAT AS DR. DAKE
Pluck! Pluck! Pluck!

GERTRUDE
Ooh, a tender spot

CAT AS DR. DAKE
Pluck! Pluck! Pluck!

GERTRUDE
Just a one feather tail...

DR. DAKE, GERTRUDE & BIRD GIRLS
But suddenly, Gertrude could sail!

GERTRUDE (dramatically)
I sailed on a junk
And was practically sunk
For you.
I trampled thorough the trees
Full of furious bees
For you.
I slogged through a fog
And a choking smog
Down a soggy slope
Through a stinking bog
While my slip was gripped
By a vicious dog
For you.

GERTRUDE BIRD GIRLS
I galloped through the snow ooh...
In eleven below
For you.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Yes, even though I knew ooh...
I was catching the flu
For you
(Achoo! ) (achoo! )
And then came the hole ooh
Where I caught my sole ooh
And I rolled downhill ooh
Out of all control ooh
'Till I broke my fall
On a jagged shoal
For you!
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ahh!
All for you
All for you
All for you
All for you
There's nothing that I
Wouldn't
And I couldn't
And I haven't gone through...
Ahh, aah, aah, aah!

(With tremendous conviction and grit! )

I sprained my little toe, but la-la-la-la-la!
I hobbled like so la-la-la-la!
For you. La-la-la-la-la-la-la!
Ooh... Ooh... Ooh
Then came the hit and run la-la-la-la-la!

But I staggered on one la-la-la-la!
For you. La-la-la-la-la-la-la!
Now, here I am, ahh-ah!
The worse for wear
And here you are ahh-ah!
I'm here!
You're there!
And maybe now ah!
You'll know I care ahh-ah!
For you! Ooh!
Ooh...

GERTRUDE
Oh, yes. And Horton, one more thing...

It took me seven weeks...
But I found your clover,
Too!
