Overture
(Instrumental)

Living In the City (Townspeople)
We're living in the city
Urban dwellers, we
We're living in the city
All we know is...
Buildings and lights and cars and
People in the cars and
People in the city
Buildings and lights and roads and
Taxis on the roads
And taxis in the city
City! City!
The city fights!
The city sings!
City! City!
Different people doing different things...

Hey, World(Chester Brown)
Hey, world!
Whatcha knowin'
I feel grand and it shows!
Sun's high!
Spirits growin'
Sayin' goodbye to those woes!

The Orphan Song(Orphans)
Have you ever wondered what
Orphans take
When you're not looking
Dropped your wallet lost your coat
Big mistake.
It's ours now!
No one knows the mischief that
Orphans make
When they
Let us out
Of the orphanage!

Somehwere In the Night (Betsy Little)
Somewhere in the night
Deep out in the night
Somewhere in the distance
Somewhere is a light guiding me
Out there in the night
Bright shining and clear
Somewhere but not here...

Bright Young Journalist(Chester and Townspeople)
Here I come,
There he goes
That bright young journalist.
He's gonna get us the scoop!
I'm the next big thing,
There he goes
That bright young journalist,
He's gonna get us the
Late breaking
Earth shaking
Prize taking
Headline making
Scoop!

Chester Brown(Mayor McTaft and Townspeople)
There's a new kid in town
And his name's Chester Brown
And he's fixin' to turn things upside down
Well not in my town!
There are ways things are done
And no upstart kid is gonna spoil my fun
I've got to sit down!
Got to think of a plan
I'm gonna make him rue the day
He ever messed with The Man.

Sixteen Husbands(Katie Ketchum)
When I was a little girl, my Mama said to me, "Katie...
Flirting with a man is a losing fight
Do it all that you can and with all your might!"
Ma, I stuck to your plan, but it's not quite right...
The fight's all to easily won!
Now I've got
16 husbands, 8 boyfriends and a guy who thinks I'm cute
16 husbands, 8 boyfriends and a guy who thinks I'm cute
And I'm always on the lookout
For another raw recruit, 'cause I've got
16 husbands, 8 boyfriends and a guy who thinks I'm cute!

The Elevated Train(P. Riggs and Townspeople)
Hey! Do the Elevated Train!
(Do the Elevated Train!)
It's a hot new dance
That'll shake your pants
And will drive you girls insane!
Hey, Girls! Do the Elevated Train!
(Do the Elevated Train)
There's never been a bag
That'll make you wag
As the nose on your face is plain.

Have You Heard(Townspeople)
Have you heard (Have I heard)
Have you heard the news
I heard Chester's getting married, so he will be wed!
(Be wed! Be wed! He will be wed!
She heard Chester's getting married and he will be wed!)
Have you heard (Have I heard)
Have you heard the news
I heard Chester's supposed to marry, so he's staying in bed
(In bed! In bed! He's staying in bed!
He heard Chester's supposed to marry so he's staying in bed!)
Have you heard (Have I heard)
Have you heard the news
I heard Chester's getting buried, so he must be dead!
(Be dead! Be dead! He must be dead!
He heard Chester's getting buried so he must be dead!
Must be dead!)

Main Street(Betsy and Townspeople)
Main Street,
Where visions are met
If you aim for the ground
Then that's all that you'll get!
Main Street,
Where nobles parade...
It's the street where visions are made!

A Vote for P. Riggs(P. Riggs, Chester and Townspeople)
Listen to me friends,
The corruption ends right here
If you're tired of McTaft and his fraud and graft
Then lend an ear!
A vote for P.Riggs will rebuild our city pride
The nation will applaud
When we beat that fraud this year!

Three of A Kind(Chester, Betsy, and P. Riggs)
Before there was you and you
Before, I was two too few
Before, there was only me
I wasn't one to see
You're the two for me...
...and we'll never be alone again
'Cause we're one two three of a kind
Yes, we're one two three of a kind!

Overture Reprise
(Instrumental)

Somewhere In The Night, Reprise(Cast)
Somewhere in the night
Deep out in the night
Somewhere in the distance
Somewhere is a light guiding us
Out there in the night,
Bright shining and clear
Somewhere and it's here...
