I wish I may

Having now performed the Witches of Eastwick, I am now hooked on it... and am hopefully going to see it this evening yay!

One song in particular I adore is the song 'I wish I may'.  If you read my last entry about Witches, then you'd know that this is the one with the proper oboe solo and its just really pretty.  There are videos of this on youtube - just search for 'I wish I may' or 'Witches of Eastwick' or both and you'll find it.  I refuse to try and put in media today, seeing as it kept trying to die on me yesterday!

Instead, I have the full lyrics for this song (though there is a small amount of dialogue in the middle which is sometimes cut from the youtube clips... well, its cut in the one I keep watching!)

Alex-

Once upon a time a little girl used to climb the grassy hills,
used to hunt the forest through.
She'd boss around her brothers and she'd tell them what to do-
her future all planned out, within an inch, without a doubt.
One perfect house, two perfect cars...
she asked the moon, she wished on stars.
Once upon a time, that girl was me...

Sukie-

Once upon a time a little girl used to laze about the lake,
used to swim in it at dawn with all her closest girlfriends-
not a stitch of clothing on.
They imagined when alone how they might change when they were grown.
Yet when the stars would fill the glen, she wished to stay as she was then.
Once upon a time, that girl was me...

Jane-

Once upon a time a little girl used to dream about romance-
used to dance the evening through.
She'd laugh and toss her hair back like the movie stars would do.
At school though, she would die each time a boy would catch her eye.
The ones who smoked...who played guitars...

Alex and Sukie-

Once...

Jane-

Who pledged their love...

Alex and Sukie-

Upon a time..

Jane-

Beneath the stars...

Alex and Sukie-

Upon a..

All-

Once upon a time, that girl was me.
And everything I am is because of who she was-
and though it may not seem to be, she's with me still..

Jane-

The girl who'd see the boys and run

Sukie-

Swimming circles in the sun

Alex-

Who raced her brothers up the hill

All-

That little girl...I close my eyes and there she is,
beneath the wrinkles and the scars.
I'm still that little girl wishing blindly on the stars....

I wish I may, I wish I might feel the joy I feel tonight forever-
one perfect moment to hold with me still, I wish I may...I say I will

I'll ask the moon before I sleep,
let this night be mine to keep for always.
This was the moment the magic began,
I wish I may, I wish I may, I wish I may- I say I can

Darryl-

Look at these three: bursting with power, barely contained,
growing stronger by the hour.
I've seen my share of wonders, you'd agree-
but nevertheless, there's not anything
I'll ever see that could scarce compare to the ecstasy,
the artistry, the mystery of these three little ladies...

Glad to see you all dressed for the occasion, ladies.

Jane-

This is delicious!

Darryl-

Napoleon brandy

Alex-

A man of great taste- and tremendous appetite

Sukie-

What are we drinking to?

Darryl-

Our fondest wishes!

Alex-

And the means to making them all come true

Jane-

Yes; teach us Darryl. Teach us everything.

Darryl-

Close your eyes, breathe deep and focus.
It's surrender more than trying, send your spirits off and flying...

Witches-

Let it, let it fly...

Darryl-

"Concentration"- thats the byword. Send your spirits soaring skyward...

Witches-

Soaring, soaring high...

Darryl-

Deep within the night, or deep inside of you?
Why consult the moon, my dears, when anything you want,
you've but to do? Just let it come..

Witches-

Let it...

Darryl-

Let it grow!

Witches-

Let it...

Darryl-

Let it loose

Witches-

Let it...

Darryl-

Let it go

Witches-

Let it...let it....aaaah!

Darryl-

Once upon a time a little girl looked to the sky and dreamed
the dream all children dream- and wished that she could fly.

Sukie-

I never dreamt that....

Darryl-

Ladies, your wish has finally been granted (they fly)

Three little ladies, how truly rare- where most men come up empty,
I've grown a pair.
With one to spare!
As singular a trio as ever there was- so beautiful,
spirited, devil may care.....and he does!

Witches-

I wish I may

Darryl-

My three little ladies

Witches-

I wish I may

Darryl-

Do you see, little ladies?

Witches-

I wish I may

Darryl-

Anything I say

Witches-

I..

Darryl-

You...

All-

Will!
