Jonathan Larson - You'll See lyrics

Benny:
Hey you bum - yeah, you, move over
Get your ass off that range rover

Mark:
That attitude toward the homeless is just what
Maureen is protesting tonight.
Close up: Benjamin Coffin the third. Our ex-
roommate who married Alison Grey, of the Westport
Greys - then bought the building, in hopes of starting
a cyber-studio.

Benny:
Maureen is protesting
Losing her performance space
Not my attitude

Roger:
What happened to Benny
What happened to his heart
And the ideals he once pursued

Benny:
The owner of that lot next door
Has a right to do with it as he pleases

Collins:
Happy birthday, Jesus!

Benny:
The rent

Mark:
You're wasting your time

Roger:
We're broke

Mark:
And you broke your word - this is absurd

Benny:
There is one way you won't have to pay

Roger:
I knew it!

Benny:
Next door, the home of Cyberarts, you see
And now that the block is re-zoned
Our dream can become a reality
You'll see boys
You'll see boys
A state of the art, digital, virtual interactive studio
I'll forego your rent and on paper guarantee
That you can stay here for free
If you do me one small favor

Mark:
What?

Benny:
Convince Maureen to cancel her protest

Mark:
Why not just get an injunction or call the cops

Benny:
I did, and they're on stand by
But my investors would rather
I handle this quietly

Roger:
You can't quietly wipe out an entire tent city
Then watch 'It's a Wonderful Life' on TV!

Benny:
You want to produce films and write songs?
You need somewhere to do it!
It's what we used to dream about
Think twice before you pooh-pooh it
You'll see boys
You'll see boys
You'll see - the beauty of a studio
That lets us do our work and get paid
With condos on the top
Whose rent keeps open our shop
Just stop the protest
And you'll have it made
You'll see - or you'll pack

Angel:
That boy could use some prozac

Roger:
Or heavy drugs

Mark:
Or group hugs

Collins:
Which reminds me -
We have a detour to make tonight
Anyone who wants to can come along

Angel:
Life support's a group for people coping with life
You don't have to stay too long

Mark:
First I've got a protest to save

Angel:
Roger?

Roger:
I'm not much company you'll find

Mark:
Behave!

Angel:
He'll catch up later - He's just go other things on his mind
You'll see boys

Mark & Collins:
We'll see boys

Roger:
Let it be boys!

Collins:
I like boys

Angel:
Boys like me

All:
We'll see.
