2017 broadway cast of sunday in the park with george – beautiful lyrics

Loading...

[old lady, spoken]
i remember when you were a little boy. you would rise up early on a sunday morning and go for a swim.

[george, spoken]
i do not know how to swim.

[old lady, spoken]
the boys would come by the house to get you. and your father would walk you all to the banks of the seine.

[george, spoken]
father was never faithful to us.

[old lady, spoken]
and he would give you boys careful instruction, telling you just how far to swim out.

[george, spoken]
he certainly never instructed.

[old lady, spoken]
and now, look across there, in the distance, all those beautiful trees cut down for a foolish tower.

[george, spoken]
i do not think there were ever trees there.

[old lady, spoken]
how i loved the view from here.

(sung)
changing

[george, spoken]
i’m quite certain that was an open field.

[old lady]
it keeps changing

[george, spoken]
i used to play there as a child.

[old lady]
i see towers
where there were trees

going
all the stillness
the solitude
georgie

sundays
disappearing
all the time
when things were beautiful

[george]
all things are beautiful
mother
all trees, all towers
beautiful
that tower
beautiful, mother
see?
a perfect tree

pretty isn’t beautiful, mother
pretty is what changes
what the eye arranges
is what is beautiful

[old lady]
fading

[george]
i’m changing
you’re changing

[old lady]
it keeps fading

[george]
i’ll draw us now before we fade
mother

[old lady]
it keeps melting
before our eyes

[george]
you watch
while i revise the world

[old lady]
changing
as we sit here
quick, draw it all
georgie

[george & old lady]
sundays

[old lady]
disappearing
as we look

[george, spoken]
look! look!

[old lady]
you make it beautiful

(spoken)
oh, georgie, how i long for the old view.
