Lyrics I HATE UNCLE FAUSTO.
GOD, ME TOO.
I HATE GROWING OLDER.
BOY, AM I WITH YOU.
SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE
A PROFESSOR TO SEE
THE APPLE DOESN'T FALL
VERY FAR FROM THE TREE!
I HATE DOING DISHES.
ALL THAT GREASE.
I HATE MRS. CARLUCCI.
MAY SHE REST IN PEACE.
THERE'S MORE
THAN A FEW THINGS
ON WHICH WE AGREE.
THE APPLE DOESN'T FALL
VERY FAR FROM THE TREE!

FOR NINE MONTHS,
I CARRIED YOU
UNDER MY HEART.
FOR NINE MONTHS,
SELDOM
IF EVER APART.

NO WONDER!

I CAN BE ANNOYING,
SCREAM AND FIGHT.
SOMETIME'S
I'M NO LADY.
YEAH,
YOU GOT THAT RIGHT!
SO THE SAYING IS TRUE,
LOOK-A YOU,
LOOK-A ME.
THE APPLE DOESN'T FALL
VERY FAR FROM THE TREE!

ME, I LIKE TO STROKE
SOME BIG GUY'S CHEST.
SPECIALLY ITALIANS.
HONEY, THEY'RE THE BEST!
YOU DON'T NEED A SHEEPSKIN FROM HARVARD
TO SEE
THE APPLE DOESN'T FALL
VERY FAR FROM THE TREE!
ME, I LIKE A GUY
WHO'LL SCRATCH MY BACK.
TRY A LITTLE LOWER.
lower voice:
SCRATCH MY BACK!
IT'S SWEET
WHEN A MOTHER A
ND DAUGHTER AGREE
THE APPLE DOESN'T FALL
VERY FAR FROM THE TREE!

FOR NINE MONTHS,
AT LEAST I WAS NEVER IGNORED.
FOR NINE MONTHS,
I GAVE YOU FREE ROOM AND BOARD.

YOU'RE TOPS, MA!

I KNOW I SHOULDN'T SAY THIS.
BE MY GUEST.
WE'RE NOT SO VERY DIFFERENT.
NOW I'M REAL DEPRESSED!
WELL, YOU OPEN A TEA BAG,
THERE'S GONNA BE TEA.
YOU OPEN A PEA-POD
AND GUESS WHAT,
A PEA!
THE APPLE DOESN'T FALL
VERY FAR FROM THE TREE!

Lyrics LOOK AT ME,
AM I AS HANDSOME
AS I USED TO BE,
STRONG AND ATTRACTIVE
AS I USED TO BE,
OR AM I JUST
A PREENING POPINJAY?
THOUGH SHE TREATED ME
INDIFFERENTLY,
I COULD TELL THE WAY
SHE LOOKED AT ME,
PANTHER WAS,
PANTHER IS.

(YOU, YOU, YOU,
EVERYWHERE
YOU, YOU, YOU.
I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S TRUE
OUT OF NOWHERE CAME
YOU, YOU, YOU.)

LOOK AT ME,
I'M NOT THE WOMAN
THAT I USED TO BE.
THERE'S NO DENYING
THAT THERE'S LESS
OF ME,
THAT'S JUST
AN OLD CONCUBINE.
AND YET THIS MORNING
WHEN HE LOOKED AT ME,
FOR JUST A MOMENT
ALMOST MAGICALLY,
WILDCAT WAS,
WILDCAT IS.

(YOU, YOU, YOU.
EVERYWHERE
YOU, YOU, YOU.
IN EVERY DREAM
I DREAM
THERE'S A SPECTRE OF
YOU, YOU, YOU.)

LOOK AT ME,
JUST AS DETERMINED
AS I'LL EVER BE.
I WON'T LET
SENTIMENT
TAKE HOLD OF ME,
WHAT'S IN THE PAST
WILL NEVER
SET ME FREE.

LOOK AT ME,
LOOK AT ME!

(YOU, YOU, YOU.
EVERYWHERE
YOU, YOU, YOU.
EVERY DAY
REACHING TO
YOU, YOU, YOU.

EVERYWHERE,
EVERYWHERE
YOU, YOU, YOU.
ANYWHERE,
ANYWHERE
YOU,
EVERYWHERE,
EVERYWHERE
YOU, YOU, YOU.)

Lyrics WHEN YOU'RE YOUNG,
FEELING,
OH SO STRONG,
WHAT CAN PROVE YOU
WRONG?
LOVE AND LOVE ALONE.
WHEN THE SUN
SEEMS FOREVER BRIGHT,
WHAT CAN DIM IT'S LIGHT?
LOVE AND LOVE ALONE.

SO BEWARE
YOUNG LOVE
LOST IN A KISS.
THERE'S A TRUTH,
YOUNG LOVE,
SIMPLE AS THIS:
EVERY FOND HELLO
ENDS IN GOODBYE,
WHAT SEEMS CERTAIN
TO LIVE
WILL DIE.

SO ENJOY
ALL THE TIME
THERE IS,
IF YOU'RE HIS,
BE HIS.
MAKE EACH DAY
YOUR OWN,
WHEN TOMORROWS COME
AND YOUR HEART
IS STONE,
WHAT HAS MADE IT NUMB?
LOVE AND LOVE ALONE.

Lyrics IT WAS WINTER,
SNOW WAS FALLING,
IT WAS WINTER,
YOU WERE CALLING,
AND I HEARD YOU
AND I TREMBLED,
WINTER.
AND YOU HELD ME,
IT WAS THRILLING,
YOU SAID,
"ALWAYS,"
I WAS WILLING,
THEN IT ENDED,
I REMEMBER,
WINTER.

OTHER VOICES
TELLING ME,
"IT'S DONE,
IT'S THROUGH."
OTHER VOICES
WARNING ME
I DARE NOT DREAM
OF WANTING YOU.

ONCE AGAIN,
SEE THE SNOW FALL,
AND THE ENDING,
DID IT END ALL?
NO,
IT DID NOT
AND IT CANNOT
AND IT WILL NOT
BRING ME JUSTICE!

Lyrics YOU, YOU, YOU.
EVERYWHERE
YOU, YOU, YOU.
IN EVERY DREAM
I DREAM
THERE'S A SPECTRE OF
YOU, YOU, YOU.
YEARS HAVE GONE BY
IT'S TRUE,
STILL MY HEART
RUSHES TO
ALL MY MEMORIES OF
YOU, YOU, YOU.

YOU, YOU, YOU.
SUDDENLY
YOU, YOU, YOU.
AFTER THE CHILL
I KNEW
COMES THE FIRE OF
YOU, YOU, YOU.
LUCKILY
YOU, YOU, YOU.
ASK ME
IF DREAMS
COME TRUE
AND MY ANSWER IS
YOU, YOU, YOU.

BEING HERE WITH YOU,
RECAPTURING THE PAST,
WELL, I MUST ADMIT
I'VE DREAMED OF THIS
AND HERE WE ARE
AT LAST.
HOW COULD I BEHAVE
AS IF WE'D NEVER MET?
OH NO,
MY DEAR,
PLEASE REST ASSURED
I NEVER DID FORGET...

YOU, YOU, YOU.
EVERYWHERE
YOU, YOU, YOU.
IN EVERY DREAM
I DREAM
THERE'S A SPECTRE OF
YOU, YOU, YOU.
