LEADING PLAYER
You look frenzied, you look frazzled
Piqued as any alp
Flushed and rushed and razzle-dazzled
Dry your lips, damp your scalp
Now I can see you’re in a rut in
Disarray
And I’m not one to butt in
But in fact I must say
If you’d take it easy, trust awhile
Don’t look blue, don’t look back
You’ll pull through in just awhile
‘Cause you’re on the right track

PIPPIN
On the right track
On the right track
On the right track
On the right track

LEADING PLAYER
Uh huh Uh huh
Take it easy, sonny
Take it easy, sonny
Take it easy

Why be flurried

PIPPIN
Flustered

LEADING PLAYER
Keep those

PIPPIN
Hopes aloft

LEADING PLAYER
Keep cool as custard

PIPPIN
Trying hard

LEADING PLAYER
Stepping soft

BOTH
There’s no trick to staying sensible
Despite each cul-de-sac
‘Cause each step’s indispensable
When you’re on the right track

PIPPIN
On the right track
On the right track
On the right track
On the right track

LEADING PLAYER
The right track
Take it easy, sonny
Take it easy, sonny
Take it easy

Pippin jumped back into life with his usual zest. He tried art, the creative life, and you know something, he wasn’t too bad. But what he discovered was…

PIPPIN
You gotta be dead to find out if you were any good.

LEADING PLAYER
Then he dedicated himself to the church. He sought God in the highways. He sought the man in the byways. And then he finally cornered Him in this huge cathedral. But what he found out was…

PIPPIN
The church isn’t saving souls. It’s investing in real estate.

LEADING PLAYER
Many when things get dank will feel their grip go
We stay tranquil, spirits high, pulses low

PIPPIN
But! What I’ve left behind looks trifling
What’s ahead looks black
Am I doomed to spend my life a-lingering on

LEADING PLAYER
Lingering on

PIPPIN
Just lingering on

BOTH
Malingering on the right

PIPPIN
Oh, I’ll never find it…. never…. never….never….never! shit!

LEADING PLAYER
Easy…
You’re on the right track!

LEADING PLAYER
You look frenzied, you look frazzled
Piqued as any alp
Flushed and rushed and razzle-dazzled
Dry your lips, damp your scalp

But in fact I must say

PIPPIN
You gotta be dead to find out if you’re any good.

LEADING PLAYER
He dedicated himself to the church. He sought God in the highways. He sought the man in the byways. Well, he finally corners him in this huge cathedral. What he found out was…

PIPPIN
Gotta fnd my corner…
Gotta find…
Gotta find my corner

LEADING PLAYER
There you are! How’s it going? Anything you need? Whatever you’d like.

PIPPIN
I’d like a little peace and quiet so I can think, if you don’t mind.

LEADING PLAYER
Look, Pippin. You may not believe this, but things are going exactly according to plan.

PIPPIN
They are?

LEADING PLAYER
Of course they are.
You look frenzied, you look frazzled
Piqued as any alp
Flushed and rushed and razzle-dazzled

Pippin jumped back into life with his usual zest. He tried art, the creative life. Ohh and you know something, he wasn’t too bad. But what he discovered was…

PIPPIN
When the king makes budget cuts, the arts are the first to go!

LEADING PLAYER
He dedicated himself to the church, the religious life. He longed to be touched by an angel. But what he found out was…

PIPPIN
It wasn’t an angel who touched me!
