For Now




PRINCETON:
Why does everything have to be so hard?

GARY COLEMAN:
Maybe you'll never find your purpose.

CHRISTMAS EVE:
Lots of people don't.

PRINCETON:
But then - I don't even know why I'm alive!

KATE MONSTER:
Well, who does, really?
Everyone's a little bit unsatisfied.

BRIAN:
Everyone goes 'round a little empty inside.

GARY COLEMAN:
Take a breath,
Look around,

BRIAN:
Swallow your pride,

KATE MONSTER:
FOr now...

BRIAN, KATE, GARY, CHRISTMAS EVE:
For now...

NICKY:
Nothing lasts,

ROD:
Life goes on,

NICKY:
Full of surprises.

ROD: 
You'll be faced with problems of all shapes and sizes.

CHRISTMAS EVE:
You're going to have to make a few compromises...
For now...

TREKKIE MONSTER:
For now...

ALL:
But only for now! (For now)
Only for now! (For now)
Only for now! (For now)
Only for now!

LUCY:
For now we're healthy.

BRIAN:
For now we're employed.

BAD IDEA BEARS:
For now we're happy...

KATE MONSTER:
If not overjoyed.

PRINCETON:
And we'll accept the things we cannot avoid, for now...

GARY COLEMAN:
For now...

TREKKIE MONSTER:
For now...

KATE MONSTER:
For now...

ALL:
But only for now! (For now)
Only for now! (For now)
Only for now! (For now)
Only for now!

Only for now!
(For now there's life!)
Only for now!
(For now there's love!)
Only for now!
(For now there's work!)
For now there's happiness!
But only for now!
(For now discomfort!)
Only for now!
(For now there's friendship!)
Only for now (For now!)
Only for now!

Only for now! (Sex!)
Is only for now! (Your hair!)
Is only for now! (George Bush!)
Is only for now!

Don't stress,
Relax,
Let life roll off your backs
Except for death and paying taxes,
Everything in life is only for now!

NICKY:
Each time you smile...

ALL:
...Only for now

KATE MONSTER:
It'll only last a while.

ALL:
...Only for now

PRINCETON:
Life may be scary...

ALL:
...Only for now
But it's only temporary

Ba-dum ba-dum
Ba-dum ba-dum
Ba dum ba-dum
Ba-da da da da
ba-da da-da da da-da
Ba-dum ba-da, ba-dum ba-da

PRINCETON:
Everything in life is only for now.

  7. @ Désolé Boy : So does Kate Monster :P

    @ Von Draye : Schaaaaa-den-freu-de! People taking pleasure in your pain!

    @ narnian : It was a fitting finale, although my faves are a toss-up between There's A Fine, Fine Line and The Internet Is For Porn.

    @ Ming : Avenue Q is what happens when Sesame Street grows up and meets the real world.

  9. I was wondering about Avenue Q these past few days. They've always been entertaining because of how they're so immensely covered in pop culture. But now that Bush isn't president, how will they sing this song? (*In the local showing, they just changed are to were*) Plus now that Coleman's dead, I don't think anyone would want to poke fun. *sad*

    FOR PORN!

  10. @ Nyl : Well, even musicals evolve and adapt to circumstances. One of the original lines in Rainbow Tour from Evita, for instance, was "She's a new world Madonna/With a golden touch."

    Natcherly, when the real Madonna bagged the role for the movie version, they changed the line to "She's Our Lady of A New World/ With a golden touch."

    As for Avenue Q and the late Gary Coleman:

    "When Coleman died on May 28, 2010, casts of both the Off Broadway production in New York City and the second national tour in Dallas dedicated that evening's performances to his memory.Subsequently, producers announced that the Coleman character would not be written out of the show, although some modifications would be made to the character's dialogue."

    Source: Wikipedia. From the internet. Which was born for porn, porn, PORN!!!

  13. @ Nyl : For all the brickbats it gets, Wiki is a handy reference tool. Just don't swear by it.

    Also, without the internet, I'd have to dig up my old porn stashes. Although the memory of Undergear Catalog and ancient GQ issues brings an innocent smile to my face.
