2015 broadway cast of the king and i – a puzzlement (reprise) lyrics

Loading...

[chulalongkorn, spoken]
it begins to look as if people do not know when they are right or wrong. even after they have grown up.

[louis, spoken]
i’ve noticed that, too.

[chulalongkorn, spoken]
’tis a puzzlement! when i left my father a little while ago, he seemed uncertain about many things.

[louis, spoken]
i don’t believe grownups are ever certain. they only talk as if they are certain.

[chulalongkorn]
there are times i almost think
they are not sure of what they absolutely know

[louis]
i believe they are confused
about conclusions they concluded long ago

[chulalongkorn]
if my father and your mother
are not sure of what they absolutely know
can you tell me why they fight?

[louis]
they fight to prove that what they do not know is so

[chulalongkorn]
oh-h-h-h-h-h!
sometimes i think that people going mad

[louis]
ah-h-h-h-h-h!
sometimes i think that people not so bad

[chulalongkorn]
but no matter what i think
i must go on living life
and some day as a leader i must go forth
be father to my children
and husband to each wife
etcetera, etcetera, and so forth

if my lord in heaven, buddha, show the way
every day i try to live another day
if my lord in heaven, buddha, show the way
every day i do my best for one more day

[chulalongkorn, spoken]
but…

[louis, spoken]
is a puzzlement!
