Hairspray

Synopsis: Tracy Turnblad, an overweight teenager with all the right moves, is obsessed with the Corny Collins Show. Every day after school, she and her best friend Penny run home to watch the show and drool over the hot Link Larkin, much to Tracy's mother Edna's dismay. After one of the stars of the show leaves, Corny Collins holds auditions to see who will be the next person on the Corny Collins show. With all of the help of her friend Seaweed, Tracy makes it on the show, angering the evil dance queen Amber Von Tussle and her mother Velma. Tracy then decides that it's not fair that the black kids can only dance on the Corny Collins Show once a month, and with the help of Seaweed, Link, Penny, Motormouth Maybelle, her father and Edna, she's going to integrate the show.....without denting her 'do!

# Oh, oh, oh #

# Woke up today #

# Feeling the way #

# I always do #

# Oh, oh, oh #

# Hungry for something

that I can't eat #

# Then I hear that beat #

# That rhythm of town

starts calling me down #

# It's like a message

from high above #

# Oh, oh, oh #

# Pulling me out to the smiles

and the streets that I love #

- Good morning, Baltimore!

- # Good morning, Baltimore #

# Every day's like an open door #

# Every night is a fantasy #

# Every sound's like a symphony #

# Good morning, Baltimore #

# And someday when

I take to the floor #

# The world's gonna

wake up and see #

# Baltimore and me #

# Oh, oh, oh #

# Look at my hair #

# What 'do can compare

with mine today? #

# Oh, oh, oh #

# I've got my hairspray and radio #

# I'm ready to go #

# The rats on the street #

# All dance around my feet #

# They seem to say:

"Tracy, it's up to you" #

# So oh, oh, don't hold me back #

# 'Cause today all

my dreams will come true #

# Good morning, Baltimore #

# There's the flasher

who lives next door #

# There's the bum on

his barroom stool #

# They wish me luck

on my way to school #

# Good morning, Baltimore #

# And someday when

I take to the floor #

# The world's gonna

wake up and see #

# Baltimore and me #

# I know every step #

# I know every song #

# I know there's a place where I belong #

# I see all those party lights

shining ahead #

# So someone invite me

before I drop dead #

# Before she drops dead #

# So oh, oh, give me a chance #

# 'Cause when I start

to dance I'm a movie star #

# Oh, oh, oh #

# Something inside

of me makes me move #

# When I hear that groove #

# My ma tells me no #

# But my feet tell me "go" #

# It's like a drummer inside my heart #

# So oh, oh, don't make me wait #

# One more moment for my life to start #

# I love you, Baltimore #

# Every day's like an open door #

# Every night is a fantasy #

# Every sound's like a symphony #

# And I promise, Baltimore #

# That someday when I take to the floor #

# The world's gonna wake up and see #

# Gonna wake up and see #

# Baltimore and me #

# Yes, more or less, we all agree #

# Baltimore and me #

# Someday the world is gonna see #

# Baltimore and me #

Mount Everest is the most

famous, but not the highest...

geographical point on this earth.

Now, who can tell me what that is?

Um, excuse me, Miss Whimsy?

I can't see the board again.

Tracy Turnblad.

If I have to write you up...

for inappropriate hair height

one more time...

you will be removed to detention.

Miss Wimsey, what am I supposed to do?

Hair can't just hang there like a dead thing

on your cheeks.

I mean, well... Uh-you know what I mean.

I... Ahh.

As I said, it is not Mount Everest.

Now, next week we will be talking...

about earthquakes and volcanoes.

And as exciting as that might sound...

we have to look back approximately

Now, if you turn your pages...

we are going to start

with the Ring of Fire.

I want you to contemplate what causes...

the separation of the two components.

Penny, come on, hurry!

Outta my way!

Push! We're late.

Ahh!

- One minute to air.

- OK.

Don't change that channel.

Coming up next:
The Corny Collins Show.

- Hiya, Dad!

- Goodbye!

Hi.

It's my daughter.

Hurry up, Penny, we're missing it!

My mom says I'm not

allowed to perspire!

Hey there, teenage Baltimore!

Don't change that

channel 'cause it's time...

for The Corny Collins Show...

# Oh, every afternoon when

the clock strikes four #

# Bop bee ba ba ba ba ba ba bee ba #

# Well, a crazy bunch of kids crash
