Seussical The Musical – How To Raise A Child lyrics

Mrs. Mayor
He was Mommy's little boy.

Mr. Mayor
He was Daddy's little man.

He was never any trouble till this...
"Thinking Thing" began!

Mr. Mayor
We must both lay down the law.

Mrs. Mayor
Will he hate us?

Mr. Mayor
Maybe so.

Mayor & mrs. Mayor
Oh, where are the instructions
On how to raise a child?
Who has the instructions
On how to raise a child?
Who has all the answers?
I don't know.

    The basic beginning ploy of Seussical is that "thinking thinks" is morally, one that would be heavily rejected in the real world. While trying to protect their small world from being destroyed, Mr. and Mrs. Mayor must deal with their child. They're basically asking how to raise him/her and who can teach them how.
