Lyrics

Ya’ Don’t Hafta Be A Singer To Sing
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Julia (Rubato)
Lily Tomlin
Gracie Allen
Carol Burnett
Lucille Ball
Tina Fey
Whoopie Goldberg
When it comes to comedy
Giants all

Sad to say
I’m just a singer
How I wish I could make ‘em laugh
But when it comes to comic timing
Guess you might say I’m just better at rhyming
Perhaps this funny business
Is just not my call

Georgia
(Spoken)
Ya’ don’t have to be a comic to make ‘em laugh, Julia.
Like you always say, “Ya’ don’t have to be a singer to sing.” Being a
comedienne is a lot like being a singer.
Just make the best of what cha got!

Julia
(Spoken)

But women like Gilda Radner and Bea Arthur are just naturally funny. And
Betty White … and Ellen Degeneres …
Julia (Continues and sings)
Now take me, for instance, Georgia
I ain’t exactly Madeline Kahn
And I could go on and on (As you know …)
But I manage to get a few laughs in each of my shows
So I thought I’d come to you
I just had to resort to a little support from a friend

Georgia
I’m here for ya’, girl.

Ya’ know, when I’m with you just hangin’ ‘round
Don’t cha know, we laugh all the time
And the truth of it is
You’re just as funny as you can be
Julia
I know …
I’m a natural ham
A rattlebrain is what I am
Therein lies the funniest facet of me
Now I see!
Yes a natural ham
A rattlebrain is what I am
So I make the best
With whatever it is I be
Right?

Georgia
Now ya’ got it!

Julia
It’s like you say I always say …
Ya’ don’t hafta be a singer to sing
Georgia
That’s right!
Anyone can do it in the shower
It just takes a dash of courage
To get over your reserve
A tablespoon of confidence
And a bucket full of nerve

You don’t hafta have a great big voice
Or God’s gift of rhythm in your soul
But at least ya’ got to know enough to carry a tune
Dare to stick it out there past the fear an’ get a grip
Both
Have the stuff to get up on that stage an’ let ‘er rip
But ya’ don’t hafta be a singer to sing

Ya’ don’t hafta be a singer to sing

Georgia
Now take me for instance, Julia
I ain’t exactly Maria Callas
And I never played the Palace
But I’ve managed to croon a few tunes on ol’ Broadway
Now my range is kinda short
So I sometimes resort to a little support from a friend
Julia
I’m here for ya’, girl.

Georgia
Ya’ see most of my notes are so remote
That, to me, I sound like a Billie goat
But I’ll tell ya’ my secret
If you promise to never tell

I got four good notes
An’ none of them’s a money note
But beyond that,
It all sounds to me like a yelp
That’s right!
I got four good notes
An’ none of them’s a money note
But beyond that, girl
I probably need some help
Julia
But remember Georgia …
Ya’ don’t hafta be a singer to sing
Georgia & Julia
Trading lines
Yeah …
Anyone can do it in the shower
It just takes a dash of courage
To get over your reserve
A tablespoon of confidence
And a bucket full of nerve

You don’t hafta have a great big voice
Or God’s gift of rhythm in your soul
But at least ya’ got to know enough to carry a tune
Dare to stick it out there past the fear an’ get a grip
Both
Have the stuff to get up
On that stage
An’ let ‘er rip
But ya’ don’t hafta be a singer to sing

Ya’ don’t hafta be a singer to sing
Georgia
Well here goes …

If yer tryin’ to be a singer
Baby ya’ gotta want it
If ya’ got it
Better flaunt it
Whatever it is ya’ got
Both
If ya’ think you can swing it
An’ yer out there tryin’ to wing it
Don’t think twice, just bring it!
Whatever it is ya’ got

So what if ya’ ain’t got the chops
Ya’ can’t be afraid of the flops
They ain’t gonna call the cops
So pull out all them stops and give it
Whatever it is ya’ got

No ya’ don’t hafta be a singer
Don’t hafta be a singer
Don’t hafta be a singer
To siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing
So siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing!

At The Heart Of It All
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

We come from two different worlds
Brought together by chance
By the unsung
The unseen
And the great unknown

Two lives traveling two different paths
Two minds separated by skin and bone
Still there’s something making us like sisters
A thread that binds this love unconditional
We all share

And the way we laugh when life seems to stumble
Is a mingling of many things
It’s a balance of emotions
Primitive and tethered
The synergy of sisters and friends
‘Cuz that’s what’s at the heart of it all
Sisters
Yeah that’s what’s at the heart of it all
Friends

And the way we weep when life crashes ‘round us
Is to dry our tears and carry on
It’s the picking up of pieces
Through the fire and water
The synergy of sisters and friends
‘Cuz that’s what’s at the heart of it all
Sisters
Yeah that’s what’s at the heart of it all
Friends

We live in confusing times
Struggling to get through
But we each have
Each other
And this trusted grace

Two souls goin’ at it on their own
Two minds separated by time and space
Still there’s nothing like knowing there is someone
Out there daring love unconditional
Free as air

And the way we are
When we are together
Is the real you, the real me
We’ll be dancing on a moonbeam
Laughing ‘til we’re loopy
Free to be whatever we be
And that’s what’s at the heart of it all
Sisters
Yeah that’s what’s at the heart of it all
Friends

And the way we celebrate this devotion
Is to take each girlfriend by the hand
And let go when she needs to
And be there when she needs you
It’s the synergy of sisters and friends
And that’s what’s at the heart of it all
Sisters
Yeah that’s what’s at the heart of it all
Friends

Sisters
And friends

Sisters
And friends

And that’s what’s at the heart of it all.

That’s right!

A Walk In The Snow
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Snow …
We took a walk in the snow
And thought about mom
Like the golden winter leaves on saplings
Frozen
Frozen in time in an alabaster forest
She hung on past her time
Ah yes, long past her time
To let go and flutter away

And we walked in the snow

She hung on, we thought,
Because the tender thread
Between mother and child
Made the parting so hard to face
And in the severance of souls
Her heart could not stand
The thought of that last embrace

But she’s gone
Off on her journey
To who knows where
Leaving us here in mid air
Leaving us here in mid air
Leaving us hanging out here in mid air
Yet still with us
On a walk in the snow
On a walk in the snow

Snow …
We took a walk in the snow
And talked about mom
As the ashen sky above hung heavy
Struggling
Struggling to find some kind of meaning
We simply watched the snow
Falling down from the sky
And let go
And sent her on her way

But we held to the thought
That she lives in us still
Beyond memory, but here
In each step, in each breath, each tear
We knew the life that is hers
Is the same life as ours
And cannot just disappear

So she’s gone
Off on her journey
To who knows where
Soaring and laughing out there
Soaring and laughing somewhere
Soaring and laughing somewhere out there
Yet still with us
On a walk in the snow
On a walk in the snow

And oh how the snow
In its soothing adagio
Rolls gently over my soul

Yes oh how the snow
In its soothing adagio
Rolls gently over my soul

We took a walk in the snow
A walk in the snow
And thought about mom
Mom

A Language Of Its Own
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

[Intro – 4 bars]
Afrikans
Mandarin
Portugese
Bengali
Sundanese
Japanese
Arabic
Hindi
[Margaret – 4 bars]
So many languages
So many tongues
So many people tryin’
To touch each other’s lives
And missin’ just the words to say
But music has a language of its own
And everybody hears it
And everybody understands
[Margaret – 4 bars]
So may I introduce you
To my ol’ friend Margaret
[Margaret – 2 bars]
This lady can sing sing to the world
[Margaret – 2 bars]
Sing it Margaret
[Margaret – 4 bars]

She doesn’t need words
To get right down to your soul
She doesn’t need language
To pierce the heart

Cuz the universal language of music
Is a language of its own
And everybody knows what you’re sayin’
And everybody knows how you feel
So sing to us of love Miss Margaret
[Margaret – 6 bars]
Oh yeah ee
Yeah ee yeah
Yeah ee yeah
Yeah ee yeah ee yeah
[Margaret – 3 bars]
Oh oooo yeah
[Margaret – 2 bars]
Both
Aaah
Yes the universal language of music
Is a language of its own
And everybody knows what you’re sayin’
And everybody knows how you feel
[Pause]
[Spoken]
Let’s talk.

God Is All
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

In the allness of all
God is all
God is good
All is goodness

In the allness of all
God is love
Love is God
All is love

In the allness of all
God is life
Life is all
Life is eternal

How can all these things be true at the same time,
In the same breath
In the same moment?
A most perplexing synchronicity of coincidence

How can allness be one thing
And at the same time be another?
How can this be possible?

Because God is all
And ev’ry idea is of God
Because God is the compound idea
Of all things perfect and true
That includes me and you
Now what on Earth are we all gonna do
With this piece of information?

In the allness of all
God is all
God is peace
All is peaceful

In the allness of all
We are all
In the palm
Of God’s hand

And when each of us falls
God is there
In our life
God is everywhere

So how is it that we can fall at the same time
God is with us
In the same moment?
A most perplexing antithetical of coincidence
How can imperfection be
When at the same time God is perfect?
How can this be possible?

Because God is all
And this fact is simply all there is
And with all of the rest just illusion
We spend life tryin’ to break through
This includes me and you
Now what on Earth are we all gonna do
With this piece of information?

Just hold on to the thought
That God is always
With you
Over you
Around you
And through
The Kingdom of God is in you
Just choose it

Just hold on to the thought
That God is always
With you
Over you
Around you
And through
The allness of God is in you
Just choose it

Just hold on to the thought
That God is always
With you
Over you
Around you
And through
The allness of God is in you
Just choose it

Just hold on to the thought …

Hungry
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

First Woman
What’s that you got on your plate, Lady
It looks just like something I’m dying to eat
So chocolaty gooey deliciously sweet
The pastry chef’s triumphant piquant sweet treat
I find myself ravenous
Filled with an avarice
Weak-kneed and flushed
With a rising heat

Watching you swoon
From across the room
I am eyeing your spoon
With jealousy
Simply put
GIVE IT TO ME!
I’m hungry!

I’m hungry
I’m famished
I’m craving
I’m itching
I’m thirsty
I’m starving
Insatiable
A bottomless pit
If I could, I’d quit

No an’ I can’t get no satisfaction
Chasing ev’ry wild attraction
Life’s become a mad distraction
Always being hungry
I’m hungry!

Second Woman

However, hunger comes in many colors …
For instance …

What’s that you got on your mind, Tootsie
You’re livin’ a life that I’m dyin’ to try
You’re pushin’ ahead with that look in yer eye
As you grab at each chance and you reach for the sky
I’m simply too tenuous
But find myself envious
Filled with ambition
But much too shy
Watching you soar
From across the floor
And my mind’s in a roar
With jealousy
Simply put
Wish it were me!
I’m hungry!

I’m hungry
I’m famished
I’m craving
I’m itching
I’m thirsty
I’m starving
Insatiable
Two bottomless pits
Two voracious misfits

No an’ I can’t get no satisfaction
Chasing ev’ry wild attraction
Life’s become a mad distraction
Always being hungry
I’m hungry
Why can’t we just calm the rabbit down?

JW So …
What if we changed the ultimate aim?
EB Yeah, what if we changed the game?

What would you change in your life, dear Jules

JW I’d wish contentment with all I require in life
I’d wish to turn off the pain of desire
And I’d wish to cool down this raging fire

EB Ah the malaise of your life’s discontent
It troubles you so
In your hunger and lust
And the thirst to succeed …

JW Why don’t we stop
Oh and just be at peace
With the good life that God has given us

JW Simply put
Why don’t we cool the desire
EB I’m hungry to cool down the fire
JW I’m hungry to just be myself
BOTH I am hungry to stop being hungry
Hungry to stop being hungry

No an’ I can’t get no satisfaction
Chasing ev’ry wild attraction
Life’s become a mad distraction
Always being hungry
Hungry …
Hungry!

God Is Your Rock
Music by Peter Link
Lyrics by Peter Link and Ragan Courtney

Julia
Foxes have holes
Birds got a nest
But Jesus had no place to lay his head
And now I know
Just how he felt

Mountains are high
Oceans are wet
Well I’m about as low as I can get
And I know
I’m all by myself

I’ve tried hard
I’ve done my best
Jenny
But maybe your best just ain’t good enough
Without the Lord in your life

Girl it’s a long hard road
Julia
Yes it is!
Jenny
When you’re goin’ it alone
Julia
It’s so lonely

Jenny
So why not make it a little easier
Julia
Uh huh …
Jenny
Uh with the Lord by your side
He’ll carry you all the way home

Remember God is your rock
God is your rock
And his faith in you is solid as stone

Julia
You mean he’d carry me
All the way home?
Jenny
That’s right!
Julia
There by my side?
Jenny
Yes sir!
Julia
Bearin’ all my burdens like a long lost friend …
Well I don’t know girl
I think I been gone too long

Jenny
But Julia
God don’t hold
No bad blood
Forgiveness is the essence of His humble heart
God is your rock
An’ He don’t let ya’ down

Julia
I’ll try hard
I’ll do my level best
To open my mind back to letting him
Come in and be in my life

Jenny
And when the road gets long
He’ll always be your song
Step by step settin’ your mind at ease
With all the rhythms of His soul
They’ll carry you all the way home

Remember God is your rock
Julia
God is my rock
Both
And His faith (in you) is solid as stone

So people take heed
We got what we need
God is always with us when the trouble comes
God is your rock
Mighty in His power

Foxes have holes
Birds got a nest
An’ now ya’ know the truth about what God knows best
That God is your rock
And God IS your home

[Ad lib Section]

God is your rock!

Once I let good fortune fashion my life

All Will Be Well
AR HYD Y NOS
Music: Ancient Welsh Melody
Lyrics: Mary Peters


Through the love of God our Saviour

All will be well

Free and changeless is His favor

All must be well

Precious is the Love that healed us

Perfect is the grace that sealed us

Strong the hand stretched forth to shield us

All, all is well

Though we pass through tribulation

All will be well

Ours is such a full salvation

All must be well

Happy still, in God confiding

Fruitful, when in Christ abiding

Holy, through the Spirit’s guiding

All, all is well

We expect a bright tomorrow

All will be well

Faith can sing through days of sorrow

All must be well

While His truth we are applying

And upon His love relying

God is every need supplying

All, all is well

The Woman In Me
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Julia
Lastly
Let me introduce you to
Yet another special friend
Somewhat off the wall
But nonetheless quite real

She’s really rather shy
But coming to the fore
With an iron strength of will
Though quite genteel
And she’s so sweet
Peter
So sweet
She’s the woman in me
Both
She’s a ballerina dancing in the dark
Julia
She hides behind the curtain
In her innocence and grace
And sings to me the songs of the skylark

Peter
I knew not
Julia
You knew not
Peter
Of the woman in me
As I wandered through the trials of my youth
She emerged from out the shadows
As I ripened in my years
Julia
Your boyhood years
Peter
And I slowly grew accustomed to the truth
I had a woman in me
Julia
And though I fell in love with the boy
The fine fellow and the man
There was this little something extra that emerged
And then I found in him a friend, a friend indeed
And yes I found in him, at times, a girlfriend when in need
And I found in him a woman’s stability
Peter
And I found I had that woman in me

Somewhere between my noisy masculinity
Julia
And your quiet femininity
Peter
I searched to find the balance of life
Julia
Somewhere between the husband
Peter
And the wife
Julia
Aaah
Both
In the halting of the pendulum
Peter
I found the perfect equilibrium
The man I’d become
Julia
Your true individuality
Peter
The man I am
And yes, the woman in me

Both
The best part
Peter
Of the woman in me
Both
Is the essence of what every woman knows
It soothes the broken promise
As it calms the ruffled heart
It’s the tenderness that melts the winter snows

Peter
Yeah, that’s the woman in me
Julia
And though I spend my days with the boy
Peter
Aaaah
Julia
The fine fellow and the man
Sometimes I need a smidge of sister in my life
So I have found in him a friend, a friend indeed
Ah, that’s me …
And yes I’ve found in him, at times, a girlfriend when in need
And I’ve found in him a woman’s gentility

Peter
And I’ve found I have that woman in me

Julia
Hey Girlfriend, let’s go get our nails done!
I love you, Mister Mom.
You clean the house, while I slave away in the office.
You dust the limoge, while I haul trash to the dump
You water the plants while I shovel the driveway
Just don’t be tryin’ on none of my dresses!
