Heathers- The Musical - Beautiful (lyrics)

Lyrics

[VERONICA]
September 1st, 1989
Dear Diary, I believe I'm a good person
You know, I think there's good in everyone
But, here we are
First day of senior year
And, uh, I look around at these kids I've known all my life and I ask myself,
"What happened?"

[COMPANY]
Freak! Slut! Burnout!
Bug eyes! Poser! Lard ass!

[VERONICA]
We were so tiny, happy, and shiny
Playing tag and getting chased

[COMPANY]
Freak! Slut! Loser! Short bus!

[VERONICA]
Singing and clapping
Laughing and napping
Baking cookies, eating paste

[COMPANY]
Bull dike! Stuck up!
Hunchback!

[VERONICA]
Then we got bigger, that was the trigger
Like the Huns invading Rome

[PREPPY STUD]
Hooah!

[VERONICA]
Ugh!! Oh! Sorry.
Welcome to my school
This ain't no high school
This is the Thunder Dome
Hold your breath and count the days
We're graduating soon

[COMPANY]
White trash!

[VERONICA]
College will be paradise
If I'm not dead by June
But I know, I know
Life can be beautiful
I pray, I pray
For a better way
If we changed back then
We could change again
We can be beautiful

[BELEAGUERED GEEK]
Aww!

[VERONICA]
Just not today
Hey, are you okay?

[BELEAGUERED GEEK]
Get away, nerd!

[VERONICA]
Oh - okay

[COMPANY]
Freak! Slut! Cripple!
Homo! Homo! Homo!

[VERONICA]
Things will get better
As soon as my letter comes
From Harvard, Duke, or Brown
Away from this coma
Take my diploma
Then I can blow this town
Dream of ivy covered walls
And smoky French cafés

[RAM]
Watch it!

[VERONICA]
Fight the urge to strike a match
And set this dump ablaze

[RAM]
Oooooops

[VERONICA]
Ram Sweeney
Third year as linebacker
And eighth year of smacking lunch trays
And being a huge dick

[RAM]
What did you say to me, skank?

[VERONICA]
Ahhhh! Nothing

[VERONICA & COMPANY]
But I know, I know (I know, I know)
Life can be beautiful (Beautiful)
I pray, I pray (I pray, I pray)
For a better way (For a better way)
We were kind before (Oooooh)
We can be kind once more (Oooooh)
We can be beautiful (Oooooooooh)
(Beautiful)

[VERONICA]
AAH! Hey Martha!

[MARTHA]
Hey

[VERONICA]
Martha Dunnstock
My best friend since diapers

[MARTHA]
We on for movie night?

[VERONICA]
Yeah! You're on Jiffy Pop detail

[MARTHA]
I rented The Princess Bride

[VERONICA]
Ooooh, again?
Wait, don't you have it memorized by now?

[MARTHA]
What can I say?
I'm a sucker for a happy ending

[KURT]
Martha Dumptruck! Wide Load! Ha!
Hahaaaa!

[VERONICA]
Kurt Kelly, quarterback
He is the smartest guy on the football team
Which is kind of like being the tallest dwarf

[KURT]
Haha! Alright!!!

[VERONICA]
Hey! Pick that up! Right now!

[KURT]
I'm sorry, are you actually talking to me?

[VERONICA]
Yes, I am
I want to know what gives you the right to pick on my friend?
You're a high school has-been waiting to happen
A future gas station attendant

[KURT]
You have a zit right there

[COMPANY]
Hahahahahahahaha!

[VERONICA & COMPANY]
Dear Diary, Why? (Why do they hate me?)
(Why don't I fight back?)
(Why do I act like such a creep?)
Why? (Why won't he date me?)
(Why did I hit him?)
(Why do I cry myself to sleep?)
Why? (Somebody hug me)
(Somebody fix me)
(Somebody save me)
(Send me a sign, God)
(Get me some cold beer)
(Something to live for)

[COMPANY]
Ahh, Heather, Heather, and Heather

[VERONICA]
And then there's the Heathers
They float above it all

[COMPANY]
I love Heather, Heather, and Heather

[VERONICA & COMPANY]
Heather McNamara (I hate)
Head cheerleader (Heather)
Her dad is loaded (Heather)
He sells engagement rings (and Heather)
Heather Duke (I want)
Runs the yearbook (Heather)
No discernible personality (Heather)
But her mom did pay for implants (and Heather)
And Heather Chandler (I need Heather)
The almighty (Heather)
She is a mythic bitch

[VERONICA]
They're solid teflon
Never bothered, never harassed
I would give anything to be like that

[HIPSTER DORK]
I'd like to be their boyfriend

[COMPANY]
That would be beautiful

[STONER CHICK]
If I sat at their table, guys would notice me

[COMPANY]
So beautiful

[MARTHA]
I'd like them to be nice

[COMPANY]
That would be beautiful

'[BELEAGUERED GEEK]'
I'd like to kidnap a Heather and photograph her naked in an abandoned warehouse and leave her tied up for the rats

[HEATHER DUKE]
throws up

[HEATHER CHANDLER]
Grow up, Heather
Bulimia is so '87

[HEATHER MCNAMARA]
Maybe you should see a doctor, Heather

[HEATHER DUKE]
Yeah, Heather
Maybe I should

[PAULINE FLEMING]
Ah, Heather and Heather...

[HEATHER DUKE]
throws up again

[PAULINE FLEMING]
...and Heather
Perhaps you didn't hear the bell over all the vomiting
You're late for class

[HEATHER CHANDLER]
Heather wasn't feeling well, we're helping her

[PAULINE FLEMING]
Not without a hall pass, you're not
Weeks detention

[VERONICA]
Um, actually, Mrs. Fleming
All four of us are out on a hall pass
Yearbook committee

[PAULINE FLEMING]
I see you're all listed
Hurry up and get where you're going

[HEATHER CHANDLER]
This is an excellent forgery
Who are you?

[VERONICA]
Uh, Veronica Sawyer
I crave a boon

[HEATHER CHANDLER]
What boon?

[VERONICA]
Um, let me sit at your table at lunch, just once
No talking necessary
If people think that you guys tolerate me then they'll leave me alone

[ALL HEATHERS]
Hahahahahaha

[VERONICA]
Before you answer
I also do report cards, permission slips, and absence notes

[HEATHER DUKE]
How about prescriptions?

[HEATHER CHANDLER]
Shut up, Heather!
For a greasy little nobody, you do have good bone structure

[HEATHER MCNAMARA]
And a symmetrical face
If I took a meat cleaver down the center of your skull
I'd have matching halves
That's very important

[HEATHER DUKE]
Of course you could stand to lose a few pounds

[HEATHER CHANDLER]
And you know, you know, you know
This could be beautiful
Mascara, maybe some lip gloss, and we're on our way
Get this girl some blush
And Heather, I need your brush
Let's make her beautiful

[HEATHER DUKE]
Let's make her beautiful

[HEATHER MCNAMARA]
Let's make her beautiful

[HEATHER CHANDLER]
Make her beautiful
Okay?

[VERONICA]
Okay!

[KURT]
Out of my way, geek

[BELEAGUERED GEEK]
I don't want trouble

[RAM]
You're gonna die at 3pm

[YOUNG REPUBLICANETTE]
Don't you dare touch me
Get away pervert

[BELEAGUERED GEEK]
What did I ever do to them?

[COMPANY]
who could survive this?
I can't escape this
I think I'm dying

[PAULINE FLEMING]
Who's that with Heather?

[COMPANY]
Woah
Heather, Heather, Heather, and someone
Heather, Heather, Heather, and a babe
Heather, Heather, Heather

[MARTHA]
Veronica?

[COMPANY]
Veronica, Veronica, Veronica!

[VERONICA & COMPANY]
And you know, you know, you know (Oooooh)
Life can be beautiful (Beautiful)
You hope, you dream, you pray(Oooooh)
And you get your way
Ask me how it fells lookin' like hell on wheels (Beautiful)
My God, it's beautiful (Beautiful)
I might be beautiful (Beautiful)
And when you're beautiful (Ahhhhhhhh)

[VERONICA]
It's a beautiful fricken day!

[COMPANY]
Heather, Heather, Heather, Veronica
Heather, Heather, Heather, Veronica
Veronica, Veronica, Veronica, Veronicaaaaaaaaa!
