TIMES HAVE CHANGED

AND WE'VE OFTEN

REWOUND THE CLOCK

SINCE THE PURITANS

GOT A SHOCK:

WHEN THEY LANDED

ON PLYMOUTH ROCK

AS YOU SEE,

THERE'S NOTHING IN MY HAT.

I'M GONNA POUR THIS JUG OF MILK

INSIDE MY HAT.

KIDS, I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S

WRONG WITH THESE KIDS TODAY

KIDS, WHO CAN UNDERSTAND

ANYTHING THEY SAY

LIFE, HUMANITY, EVERYTHING...

IS JUST SCUM FLOATING

ROUND AND ROUND...

ON TOP OF THE WATER

UNTIL IT FINALLY SINKS.

KUM-BAH-YAH, MY LORD

KUM-BAH-YAH

["Give My Regards To Broadway"]

AAH!

[French]

OH, MA, I DID IT WRONG.

AAAH!

WAS THAT GOOD?

AND NOW I'M GONNA PU THIS HAT ON MY HEAD.

SHE WOKE UP AND FOUND THA HER DREAM OF LOVE WAS GONE

MADAM:

SHE RAN TO THE MAN WHO HAD

LED HER SO FAR ASTRAY

AND FROM UNDER:

HER VELVET GOWN:

SHE DREW A GUN AND SHO BANG, BANG, HER LOVER DOWN

AND THOUGH I'M NO A GREAT ROMANCER

I KNOW THAT I'M BOUND

TO ANSWER WHEN YOU PROPOSE

ANYTHING GOES:

AND I KNOW:

THAT IF I WERE DOWN,

I SHOULD WANT TO GO

DEEPER AND DEEPER...

INTO THE FETID, FESTERING EARTH.

[Sighs]

I CAN WAIT THAT LONG.

[Grunting]

GEENA. GEENA. GEENA!

HI, MR. CHAPMAN.

[Sighs]

WHAT IS THIS?

IT'S A WALKMAN.

I KNOW IT'S A WALKMAN.

DO YOU KNOW WHY THEY

CALL IT A WALKMAN?

BECAUSE YOU'RE SUPPOSED

TO WEAR IT WHEN YOU WALK.

NOT WHEN YOU'RE

SITTING AT A DESK, WORKING.

HOW CAN YOU HEAR

IF SOMEBODY CALLS?

DID SOMEBODY CALL?

WAS IT FOR ME?

YEAH, HARVARD MEDICAL.

YOUR BRAIN IS READY.

JUST GET MY BROTHER

ON THE PHONE, PLEASE.

WHOA! CHAPMAN STEALS THE PUCK,

HE SPLITS THE "D."

HE MAKES HIS MOVE.

IT'S A STRONG MOVE!

HE IS THE KING:

OF WEST 83rd.

[Grunting]

HOW CAN HE BE SO GOOD?

HOW ABOUT YOU'RE OLD ENOUGH TO

BE MY FATHER! OHH!

HE IGNORES THE FEEBLE TAUNTS

OF THE PATHETIC DEFENDERS.

YES! AND HE... SHOOTS!

[Boys]

UH-OH.

C'MERE!

[Boys Chanting]

FIGHT! FIGHT!

FIGHT! FIGHT!

CALM DOWN, YOU JUS CALM DOWN A SECOND.

IT'S NOT EASY BEIN' FATHER

TO ALL THESE KIDS.

YOU SEE THAT CAR?

THAT'S MY BOSS'S CAR, AND HE

AIN'T GONNA BE TOO HAPPY

IF HE SEES IT.

AND IF HE AIN'T HAPPY,

I AIN'T HAPPY.

ALL RIGHT, LISTEN.

I APPRECIATE YOUR SITUATION.

I FEEL COMPELLED TO TELL YOU,

HOWEVER, THAT I AM
