2017 london cast of the wind in the willows – the amazing mr toad lyrics

Loading...

[mr toad]
did you see that thunderbolt careering down the street?
did you see that handsome chap in the driving seat?
motor and amphibian, a moving work of art
it’s as if they’re both designed to never be apart!

the leather’s real, the chassis’s steel
but who is that dashing fellow sat behind the wheel?

it’s mr toad!
p++p! p++p!
toad!
p++p! p++p!
isn’t he spectacular? the monarch of the road!
it’s mr toad!
p++p! p++p!
toad!
p++p! p++p!
using the vernacular, folks cry “well, i’ll be blowed!”

it’s high time that laurels were bestowed
on that modest marvel, mr toad

is it any wonder that the crowds are turning out?
hoping for a glimpse of me, though i don’t hang about
pedal to the metal, that’s my motto, that’s my creed
living in the fast lane, with both elegance and speed!
the crowds all cry (ooo!)
the fans all sigh (ahhh!)
but who was that vision, that they just saw whizzing by?
it’s mr toad!
p++p! p++p!
toad!
p++p! p++p!
kindly and convivial, with charm in overload
it’s mr toad!
p++p! p++p!
toad!
p++p! p++p!
no time for the trivial, his pace will not be slowed!

surely mother nature must have crowed! hahahaha!
when she made that marvel, mr toad

[ensemble]
toad! toad!

[mr. toad]
even as an infant my great talent showed
clearly, i was destined to excel
toadsp+wn into tadpole, tadpole into toad
when i metamorphosised, i did it rather well!

[hedgehogs]
watch out for that maniac, who flagrantly ignores
bylaws of the carriageway, you’re better off indoors!
doesn’t have an inkling that he’s looked on as a joke
everybody laughs at him each time he starts to croak!
[hedgehogs & ensemble]
just look at that, the pompous brat

[young hedgehogs]
look out, here he comes again, he’s gonna squash us flat!

[mr toad]
did you see that thunderbolt careering down the street?
did you see that handsome chap in the driving seat?
motor and amphibian, a moving work of art
it’s as if they’re both designed to never be apart!
is it any wonder that the crowds are turning out?
hoping for a glimpse of me, though i don’t hang about
pedal to the metal, that’s my motto, that’s my creed
i need more speed!

[mr toad & (ensemble)]
(toad!) p++p! p++p!
(toad!) p++p p++p!
isn’t he spectacular? the monarch of the road!
its mr toad! (p++p! p++p!)
toad! (p++p! p++p!)
(using the vernacular, folks cry)
“well, i’ll be blowed!”
it’s high time that laurels were bestowed
on that modest marvel
(such a modest marvel!)
i’m that modest marvel!
mr toad!
(toad!)
p++p! p++p!
