Lyrics

"You Can Fly! You Can Fly! You Can Fly!"

Think of the presents you've brought
Any merry little thought
Think of Christmas, think of snow
Think of sleigh bells Here we go!
Like a reindeer in the sky
You can fly! You can fly!
You can fly! You can fly!
Soon you'll zoom all around the room
All it takes is faith and trust
But the thing that's a positive must
Is a little bit of pixie dust
The dust is a positive must
You can fly! You can fly!
You can fly! You can fly!
When there's a smile in your heart
There's no better time to start
It's a very simple plan
You can do what the birdies can
At least it's worth a try
You can fly! You can fly!
You can fly! You can fly!

"The Second Star to the Right"

The second star to the right
Shines in the night for you
To tell you that the dreams you plan
Really can come true
The second star to the right
Shines with a light that's rare
And if it's Never Land you need
It's light will lead you there
Twinkle, twinkle little star
So I'll know where you are
Gleaming in the skies above
Lead me to the one who loves me
And when you bring him my way
Each time we say "Goodnight"
We'll thank the little star that shines
The second from the right

"Following the Leader"

Following the leader, the leader, the leader
We're following the leader wherever he may go
We won't be home till morning, till morning
We won't be home till morning
Because he told us so
Tee dum, tee dee
A teedle ee do tee day
We're out for fun
And this is the game we play:
Come on, join in
And sing your troubles away
With a teedle ee dum
A teedle do tee day
We're following the leader, the leader, the leader
We're following the leader wherever he may go
We won't be home till morning, till morning
We won't be home till morning
Because he told us so
Tee dum, tee dee
A teedle ee do tee day
We march along and
These are the words we say:
Tee dum, tee dee,
A teedle deelde deeay
Oh, a teedle ee dum
A teedle ee do tee day
Oh, a teedle ee dum
A teedle ee do tee day

"Tender Shepherd"

Tender shepherd
Tender shepherd
Let me help you hold your sheep
One in the meadow
Two in the garden
Three in the nursery
Fast asleep...

"I've Gotta Crow"

Not me,
It's just that I am what I am
And I'm me!
When I look at myself
And I see in myself
All the wonderful things that I see
If I'm pleased with myself
I have ev'ry good reason to be.

I've gotta crow!
I'm just the cleverest fellow
'Twas ever my fortune to know;
I taught a trick to my shadow
To stick to the tip of my toe
I've gotta crow!

I've gotta brag!
I think it's sweet
I have fingers and feet I can wiggle and wag.
I can climb trees and play tag with the breeze
In the meadows below
I've gotta crow!

If I were a very ordinary
Ev'ry day thing,
I'd never be heard cock-a-doodling
'Round like a bird!

So Naturally
When I discover the cleverness of a remarkable me,
How can I hide it
When deep down inside it just tickles me so
That I've gotta let go and crow!

I'm really a rare thing,
Such a fair thing,
I can't keep still!
I'm bursting with pride
And I just couldn't keep it inside
If I tried so...

Naturally
When I discover the cleverness of a remarkable me,
How can I hide it
When deep down inside it just tickles me so
That I've gotta let go and crow!

"Never Never Land"

WENDY:
Peter where do you live?

PETER PAN:
It's a secret place.

WENDY:
Please, tell me!

PETER PAN:
Would you believe me if I told you?

WENDY:
I promise.

PETER PAN:
For sure.

WENDY:
For sure!

PETER PAN:
I have a place where dreams are born,
And time is never planned.
It's not on any chart,
You must find it with your heart.
Never Never Land.

It might be miles beyond the moon,
Or right there where you stand.
Just keep an open mind,
And then suddenly you'll find
Never Never Land.

You'll have a treasure if you stay there,
More precious far than gold.
For once you have found your way there,
You can never, never grow old.

And that's my home where dreams are born,
And time is never planned.
Just think of lovely things.
And your heart will fly on wings,
Forever in Never Never Land.

You'll have a treasure if you stay there,
More precious far than gold.
For once you have found your way there,
You can never, never grow old.

And that's my home where dreams are born,
And time is never planned.
Just think of lovely things.
And your heart will fly on wings,
Forever in Never Never Land

"I'm Flying"

JOHN:"Can you really fly?"
PETER:"I'll teach you."

PETER and CHILDREN:
I'm flying
(Flying, flying, flying)
Look at me way up high,
Suddenly here am I
I'm flying.

I'm flying
(Flying, flying, flying)
I can soar
I can weave and what's more
I'm not even trying

High up, and as light as I can be.
I must be a sight lovely to see.

I'm flying.
(Flying, flying, flying)
Nothing will stop me now:
Higher still look at how
I can zoom around,
'Way up off the ground
I'm flying.

I fly and I'm all over the place
You try and you fall flat on your face

I'm flying.
(Flying, flying, flying)
Over bed, over chair
Duck your head, clear the air
Oh, what lovely fun
Watch me everyone
Take a look at me
A see how easily it's done
I'm flying!

CHILDREN:
Oh, teach us Peter, please, teach us!

PETER PAN:
First I must blow the fairy dust on you!
(blows)
Shhh...
Shhh...
Shhh...
Now think lovely thoughts

ALL:
Think lovely thoughts
Think lovely thoughts
Fishing
Hoopskirt
Candy!

Picnics
Summer
Candy!

Sailing
Flowers
Candy!

Lovelier thoughts, Michael!

Christmas?!

PETER PAN:
Ah, ah, flying!
Like an owl, like a bat,
Or the crow,
It's so satisfying!

I'm whizzing
Through a cloud
Past the star
I'm so proud
Look how far I breeze in
High over the moon
Higher I fly
By old mister moon
Wave me goodbye

I'm flying.
(Flying, flying, flying)
Heading far out of sight
Second star to the right
Now the way is clear
Never Land is near
Follow all the air
Cause I'm about to disappear
I'm flying!

"Never Smile at a Crocodile"

Never smile at a crocodile
No, you can't get friendly with a crocodile
Don't be taken in by his welcome grin
He's imagining how well you'd fit within his skin
Never smile at a crocodile
Never dip your hat and stop to talk awhile
Never run, walk away, say good-night, not good-day
Clear the aisle but never smile at Mister Crocodile
You may very well be well bred
Lots ot etiquette in your head
But there's always some special case, time or place
To forget etiquette
For instance:
Never smile at a crocodile
No, you can't get friendly with a crocodile
Don't be taken in by his welcome grin
He's imagining how well you'd fit within his skin
Never smile at a crocodile
Never dip your hat and stop to talk awhile
Never run, walk away, say good-night, not good-day
Clear the aisle but never smile at Mister Crocodile

"Wendy"

PETER PAN:
We'll need lots of wood
Need lots of leaves
Need lots of paint
But hush hush hush hush hush...

Let's be quiet as a mouse
And build a lovely little house
For Wendy
Oh for Wendy
She's come to stay

ALL:
We have a mother,
At last we have a mother!

PETER PAN:
Home sweet home
Upon the wall
A welcome mat
Down in the hall for Wendy
So that Wendy
Won't go away!

ALL:
We have a mother,
At last we have a mother!

PETER PAN:
Oh what pleasure
She'll bring to us
Make us pockets and sing to us
Tell us stories we've been longing to hear
Over and over!

She'll be waiting at the door
We won't be lonely anymore
Since Wendy
Lovely Wendy's here to stay

(Whistling)

ALL:
We have a mother,
At last we have a mother!

(Whistling)

ALL:
We have a mother,
At last we have a mother!

PETER PAN:
Oh what pleasure
She'll bring to us
Make us pockets and sing to us
Tell us stories we've been longing to hear
Over and over!

She'll be waiting at the door
We won't be lonely anymore
Since Wendy

ALL:
Lovely Wendy's here to stay
We have a mother,
At last we have a mother!

PETER PAN:
She'll be our mother,
It's nice to have a mother!

ALL:
Wendy's here to stay!

"I Won't Grow Up"

PETER PAN:
Are you ready for today's lesson?

ALL:
Yes, Peter!

PETER PAN:
Listen to your teacher. Repeat after me:
I won't grow up,
(I won't grow up)
I don't want to go to school.
(I don't want to go to school)
Just to learn to be a parrot,
(Just to learn to be a parrot)
And recite a silly rule.
(And recite a silly rule)
If growing up means
It would be beneath my dignity to climb a tree,
I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up
Not me!
Not I,
Not me!
Not me!
I won't grow up,
(I won't grow up)
I don't want to wear a tie.
(I don't want to wear a tie)
And a serious expression
(And a serious expression)
In the middle of July.
(In the middle of July)
And if it means I must prepare
To shoulder burdens with a worried air,

I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up
Not me,
Not I,
Not me!
So there!
Never gonna be a man,
I won't!
Like to see somebody try
And make me.
Anyone who wants to try
And make me turn into a man,
Catch me if you can.
I won't grow up.
Not a penny will I pinch.
I will never grow a mustache,
Or a fraction of an inch.
'Cause growing up is awfuller
Than all the awful things that ever were.
I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up,
No sir,
Not I,
Not me,
So there!

I won't grow up!
(I won't grow up)
I will never even try
(I will never even try)
I will do what Peter tells me
(I will do what Peter tells me)
And I'll never ask him why
(And I'll never ask him why)

We won't grow up!
(We won't grow up)
We will never grow a day
(We will never grow a day)
And if someone tries to make it
(And if someone tries to make it)
We will simply run away
(We will simply run away)

I won't grow up!
(I won't grow up)
No, I promise that I won't
(No, I promise that I won't)
I will stay a boy forever
(I will stay a boy forever)
And be banished if I don't!
(And be banished if I don't)

And Never Land will always be
The home of beauty and joy
And neverty
I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up
Not me!
Not me!
Not me!
Not me!
No sir!
Not me!

"Distant Melody"

PETER PAN:
Once upon a time and long ago
I heard someone singing
Soft and low
Now when day is done
And night is near
I recall this song I used to hear
My child, my very own,
Don't be afraid, you're not alone
Sleep until the dawn
For all is well
Long ago this song was sung to me
Now it's just a distant melody
Somewhere from the past I used to know
Once upon a time
And long ago...

"Hook's Waltz"

HOOK:
I'm the greatest villain of all time!
Who is Blue Beard?
(Nobody!)
Who is Nero?
(Nobody!)
Who is Jack the Ripper?
(Nobody!)
Ahahaha!
Who's the swiniest swine in world?
(Captain Hook! Captain Hook!)
Who's the dirtiest dog in this wonderful world?
(Captain Hook! Captain Hook!)
Captain of villainy
Madder and loot lout
Eager to kill any
Who says that his hook isn't cute!
(It's cute!)
Ahahahah!

Slimiest rat in the pack?
(Captain Hook! Captain Hook!)
Who's unlaughable?
(You!)
Who's unliftable?
(You!)
Whose existence is quite unforgivable?
(You!)
Who would stoop to the cheapest and lowest
Of tricks in the book?
(Tricks in the book)
Blame me, slay me,
Captain Hook!

"I've Gotta Crow" (reprise)

I've gotta crow!
I'm just the cleverest fellow
'Twas ever my fortune to know;
I give the sign and the sunlight will shine
And the forest will grow
And the rivers will flow
I've gotta crow!

-Oh Peter, you are the most wonderful boy in the world!
Is there anything that you couldn't do?

-Nothing!

-Peter, will you teach me how to crow?

-Sure!

You'll do it too

-Me!?

-Yes!
And if you choose
You will find such unusual things you can do

-Ugh-u-u-uh...

-You're getting warm but
Your mouth should be forming a happier

-Ugh-ur-r-r!

-Don't be such a sissy, prim and prissy
Let out the crow!
You've nothing to fear
Come and whisper it close to my ear...

-ugh ugh ugh
Ugh ugh ugh
UGH UGH UGH!
-That's better

And now we can crow
Ugh ugh ugh
Just like a rooster we'll be
Our own booster and let out the crow
Ugh ugh ugh
We'll give the proudest and gayest
And loudest crow that we know
Everybody let go
Ugh ugh ugh
And crow
Ugh ugh ugh
Ugh ugh ugh
Ugh ugh ugh

Tender shepherd
Tender shepherd
Let me help you hold your sheep
One in the meadow
Two in the garden
Three in the nursery
Fast asleep...

Will you treat me with respect?
(Yes, sir!)
Let me have a little peace and quiet?

(We will always try to be so quiet
Quieter than mice!)

Oh wouldn't that be nice!

We will grow up
(They will grow up)
We will mind the P's and Q's
(They will mind the P's and Q's)
We will never be a bother
(They will never be a bother
And we'll always shine your shoes)
Oh do think of all those shoes!
???
We trying to grow up
Trying to grow up,
Trying to grow up
Like me,
Like I,
Like me.

JANE:
Peter Pan, will you teach me how to fly!

PETER PAN:
Oh Jane, Jane...
First I must blow the fairy dust on you!
Ah!

Now come with me where dreams are born,
And time is never planned.
Just think of lovely things.
And your heart will fly on wings,
Forever in Never Never Land.
