Broadway Games: Sondheim Lyrics

Broadway Games:
Sondheim Lyrics

Do you fancy yourself a real Sondheim fan? This week, put your devotion (and knowledge) to the test! Can you name the Sondheim song and show from the lyrics below?








1. "And are you beautiful and pale
With yellow hair
Like her?
I'd want you beautiful and pale
The way I've dreamed you were...
And if you're beautiful, what then
With yellow hair
Like wheat?
I think we shall not meet again
My little dove
My sweet..."

Song Title:                                        Sondheim Show:

2. "Feel how it quivers
On the brink
What?
Everything
Gives you the shivers
Makes you think
There's so much stuff to sing
And you and me
We'll be singing it like the birds
Me with music and you the words
Tell 'em things they don't know
Up to us, pal, to show 'em"

Song Title:                                        Sondheim Show:


3.
"I was younger then...
I saw everything...
I was hidden all the time...
It was easier to climb...
I was younger then...
I saw everything...
Where they came and where they went
I was part of the event!"

Song Title:                                        Sondheim Show:

4. "There are mouths to be kissed
Before mouths to be fed
And there's many a tryst
And there's many a bed
To be sampled and seen
In the meanwhile
And a girl has to celebrate what passes by..."

Song Title:                                        Sondheim Show:

5. "I thought I knew what love was
I wish we could have met so much sooner
I thought I knew what love was
I thought I knew how much I could feel
I thought I knew what love was
But now I do
It's what I feel with you"

Song Title:                                        Sondheim Show:
