Why Did I Listen To That Man?
[PENNY]
Why did I listen to that man?
Why did I listen to the nature of his plan?
And when he talked
I should have balked
I should have walked
I should have ran!
Why did I listen to that man?

[FIPP]
Why did I listen to that crook?
A little bribe in cash is all it really took
That's how that craven toilet maven
Made me cave in
I'm a schnook!
Why did I listen to that crook?

[BOBBY (spoken)]
You lied to us, Cladwell! You told us one thing, then you did another! That's what you did, Cladwell! That's what you did!

[LOCKSTOCK & BARREL]
Now we've finally got you!
Now you're in our claws!
Captured in our city of laws

There's no trial or jury
Nothing to discuss
Now the law is speaking through us!

You'll get Urinetown!
Off with you to Urinetown!
Away with you to Urinetown!
Now, no more fun!

[PENNY]
Let go of me! I have to save Hope!

[Business Man 2]
There's no saving Hope now, Ms. Pennywise

[Business Man 1]
There may be no saving you
[PENNY]
Oh, no?! Then take that! And that! And this! And a few of these!

[HOPE]
Why did I listen to that boy?
He spoke of hopes and dreams
It filled me with such joy
How can I know he loved me so?
Was it for show?
Was I his toy?
Why did I listen to that boy?

[PENNY]
Why did I listen to that cad?

[HOPE]
Why did I listen to my dad?

[HOPE & PENNY]
I went to work for him
He said he was so glad

[HOPE]
Was he sincere?

[PENNY]
Well, now it's clear
[HOPE]
And now I fear

[HOPE & PENNY]
That I've been had!
Why did I listen to -

[FIPP]
That crook

[LOCKSTOCK & BARREL]
This is
Urinetown!

Dead ahead
It's
Urinetown!

You must
Go to
Urinetown!

Urinetown!

[BOBBY]

[BOBBY, spoken]
So what's it like, this "Urinetown" that I've heard so much about?

[BARREL, spoken]
Perhaps better for us to "show" you

[BOBBY, spoken]
Wait a minute, you're just going to throw me off this roof and that's
Supposed to be Urinetown?! Death is Urinetown?!

[LOCKSTOCK, spoken]
That's one interpretation

[BOBBY]
Why did I listen to my heart?

I heard its call and made
This revolution start
So let the throng
Take up my song!
Make Cladwell see
That he is wrong
Why did I listen to my heart?

Why did I listen to my heart?
I heard its call and made
This revolution start
So let the throng
Take up my song!
Make Cladwell see
That he is wrong

[LOCKSTOCK & BARREL]
There's no trial or jury
Nothing to discuss
Now the law is speaking
Through us

Shovel and a mop, Mr. Barrel. You know the drill
