One from A Chorus Line

One singular sensation
Every little step she takes.
One thrilling combination
Every move that she makes.
One smile and suddenly nobody else will do;
You know you’ll never be lonely with you know who.
One moment in his presence
And you can forget the rest.
For the guy is second best
To none,
Son.
Ooooh! Sigh! Give him your attention.
Do…I…really have to mention?
He’s the One?
She walks into a room
And you know
[Girls]
She’s un-
Commonly rare, very unique,
Peripatetic, poetic and chic.
[All]
She walks into a room
And you know from her
Maddening pose, effortless whirl,
She’s the special girl.
Stroll-ing,
Can’t, help,
All of her qualities extol-ling.
Loaded with charisma is my
Jauntily sauntering, ambling shambler.
She walks into a room
And you know you must
Shuffle along, join the parade.
She’s the quintessence of making the grade.
This is whatcha call
Trav-ling.
Oh, strut your stuff!
Can’t get enough
Of her.
Love her.
I’m a son of a gun,
She is one of a
Kind…
[Boys & Girls parts simultaneously]
[Boys]
One singular sensation
Every little step she takes.
One thrilling combination
Every move that she makes.
One smile and suddenly nobody else will do;
You know you’ll never be lonely with you know who.
One moment in her presence
And you can forget the rest.
For the girl is second best
To none,
Son.
Ooooh! Sigh! Give her your attention.

Nothing from Chorus Line

At the Ballet Cover by Barbara Streisand, Anne Hathaway & Daisy Ridley

[SHEILA:]
Daddy always thought that he married beneath him.
That’s what he said, that’s what he said.
When he proposed he informed my mother
He was probably her very last chance.
And though she was twenty-two,
Though she was twenty-two,
Though she was twenty-two,
She married him.

Life with my dad wasn’t ever a picnic
More like a ‘Come as you are.’
When I was five I remember my mother
Dug earrings out of the car
I knew they weren’t hers, But it wasn’t
Something you’d want to discuss.
He wasn’t warm.
Well, not to her.
Well, not to us

But
Everything was beautiful at the ballet.
Graceful men lift lovely girls in white.
Yes,
Everything was beautiful at the ballet.
I was happy… at the ballet.

That’s why I started class…

[SHEILA AND BEBE:]
Up a steep and very narrow stairway.
To the voice like a metronome.
Up a steep and very narrow stairway.

[SHEILA:]
It wasn’t paradise…

[BEBE:]
It wasn’t paradise…

[MAGGIE:]
It wasn’t paradise…

[MAGGIE, SHEILA AND BEBE:]
But it was home.

[BEBE:]
Mother always said I’d be very attractive
When I grew up, when I grew up.
‘Diff’rent,’ she said, ‘With a special something
And a very, very personal flair.’
And though I was eight or nine,
Though I was eight or nine,
Though I was eight or nine,
I hated her.
Now,

Diff’rent’ is nice, but it sure isn’t pretty.
‘Pretty’ is what it’s about.
I never met anyone who was ‘diff’rent’
Who couldn’t figure that out.
So beautiful I’d never lived to see.
But it was clear
If not to her
Well, then to me
That

[MAGGIE AND BEBE:]
Everyone is beautiful at the ballet.
Every prince has got to have his swan.
Yes,
Everyone is beautiful at the ballet.

[BEBE:]
I was pretty…

[SHEILA:]
At the ballet

[MAGGIE, SHEILA AND BEBE:]
Up a steep and very narrow stairway
To the voice like a metronome.
Up a steep and very narrow stairway

[SHEILA:]
It wasn’t paradise…

[BEBE:]
It wasn’t paradise…

[MAGGIE:]
It wasn’t paradise…

[MAGGIE, SHEILA AND BEBE:]
But it was home.

[MAGGIE (Spoken):]
I don’t know what they were for or against, really,
except each other.
I mean I was born to save their marriage
but when my father came to pick my mother up at the hospital
he said, ‘Well, I thought this was going to help.
but I guess it’s not…’
Anyway, I did have a fantastic fantasy life.
I used to dance around the living room
with my arms up like this
My fantasy was that there was an Indian Chief…
And he’d say to me,
‘Maggie, do you wanna dance?’
And I’d say, ‘Daddy, I would love to dance!’

[MAGGIE:]
But it was clear…
When he proposed…
That I was born to help their marriage and when

[SHEILA:]
That’s what he said…

[BEBE:]
That’s what she said…

[MAGGIE:]
I used to dance around the living room…

[SHEILA:]
He wasn’t warm…

[BEBE:]
Not to her…

[MAGGIE:]
It was an Indian chief and he’d say:
‘Maggie, do you wanna dance?’
And I’d say, ‘Daddy, I would love to…’

[SHEILA:]
Everything was beautiful at the ballet
Raise your arms and someone’s always there.
Everything was beautiful at the ballet
At the ballet
At the ballet!!!

[MAGGIE, SHEILA AND BEBE:]
Yes everything was beautiful at the ballet.

[BEBE:]
I was pretty…

[SHEILA:]
I was happy…

[MAGGIE:]
‘I would love to…’

[MAGGIE, SHEILA AND BEBE:]
At…the…ballet

What I Did For Love-Chorus Line

[Diana]
Kiss today goodbye,
The sweetness and the sorrow.
Wish me luck, the same to you.
But I can’t regret
What I did for love, what I did for love.
Look my eyes are dry.
The gift was ours to borrow.
It’s as if we always knew,
And I won’t forget what I did for love,
What I did for love.
Gone,
Love is never gone.
As we travel on,
Love’s what we’ll remember.
Kiss today goodbye,
And point me t’ward tomorrow.
We did what we had to do.
Won’t forget, can’t regret
What I did for
Love
[All]
What I did for
Love
[Diana]
What I did for…
[All (adding more voices each phrase)]
Love
Love is never gone
As we travel one
Love’s what we’ll remember
Kiss today goodbye.
[Diana]
And point me t’ward tomorrow.
[All]
Point me t’ward tomorrow
We did what we had to do.
Won’t forget, can’t regret
What I did for love.
What I did for love.
[Diana]
What I did for love
[All]
Love
