dear world (duet with ronnie tober)
(Music: Jerry Herman, Words: Jerry Herman)

 

Verse
Please take your medicine, dear world.
Please keep your pressure down, dear world.
Promise to thrive on each word your doctor speaks.
He'll bring the roses back to your cheeks.
For you've been a pallid and blah world.
Stick out your tongue and say "ahh", world.
We'll give you plasma and tonic by the spoon,
so be a dear world.
Take your medicine, dear world.
Keep your pressure down, dear world.
And get well soon!

Verse
Please keep your fever down, dear world.
Please keep your courage up, dear world.
Your vim and vigor is very sorely missed.
Help us declare you "Patient dismissed".
And stand on your crutches with pride, world.
You've got to save your own hide, world.
We'll bring you lilacs until you're back in tune,
so be a dear world.
Keep your fever down, dear world.
Keep your courage up, dear world.
And get well soon!

Verse
Someone has wounded you, dear world.
Someone has poisened you, dear world.
And those who love you defiantly insist
that you get off of that critical list.
So make your recovery quick, world
We're sick of having a sick world.
We want you dancing tomorrow afternoon,
so be a dear world.
And get well soon!

Bridge
Take the stitches out,
rip the bandage off,
what's a little bity scar, world.
Keep your fever down,
keep your courage up,
we know you're gonna go far, world.
Take your medicine,
keep your pressure down,
you're gonna be a big star, world.
Call it...
And get well soon!
