A Home for Me

Wait until we see your father, honey
Put down that candy; no, you can't have money
Straighten up and fix your collar
I told you no! You can't have a dollar

[spoken:]
Well, how'd we do?
Well, we sold one tonic, two snake oils and some memory elixir.
That's it?

[sung:]
What made you think we could sell in this town?
Me? You said your mortgage was upside down
Two measly bucks can't be all that we cleared
You'd better look for a new career

Next time I see you, you'll be a father
I will return; don't you fret
I still remember the first day I saw you
Yes, it was pouring; your hair was all wet

[spoken:]
Excuse me, sir?
Er, one moment.
But … I'm here to …
[shushes her]
But I –
[shushes her]
…Okay. What can I do for you, young lady?
Well, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert sent for me, and I'm supposed to meet them here. I came from the orphanage in Bright River. They sent word to put me on a train and –
Have a seat, young lady. I'm sure they'll be along for you shortly.

[sung:]
Who am I? I tried to see
How I lost my family tree
Where are there people just like me?

A place where you're wanted
A place where you want to be

This time you'll see, I'll make it right
I won't argue, fuss or fight
Won't talk too much; stay out of sight

A place where you're needed
A place where you need to be
It's a place that I longed for
It's a home for me

[spoken:]
Where are you headed?
Home, to Carmody.
Bet you can't wait to see your family.
Yeah, sure.
He has eight children.
[gasps] Eight children! My goodness! What are their names?
Their names?
Yes! Names are very important, so I always ask. Oh, please tell me.
[laughs] I don't think he remembers.
Of course I do!

[sung:]
There's Albert and Andrew and Allie Marie
Alex and, er, Anthony
There's Aaron and Alice and Anna Clarisse
Don't forget Fifi, a Pekingese

[spoken:]
I'd fit right in, 'cause my name's Anne.
Well, here, you can take my ticket and I'll stay here.

[sung:]
What made you think we could sell in this town?
(Who am I? I tried to see)
You said your mortgage was upside down
(How I lost my family tree)
Two measly bucks can't be all that we cleared
(We're all their people, just like me)
(Wait until we see your father, honey
Put down that candy; no, you can't have money)
You'd better look for a new career
(It's a place that I longed for
It's a home for me)
(Straighten up and fix your collar
I told you no! You can't have a dollar)

[spoken:]
Say hi to your children for me, Mrs Bell! Especially little Tillie.
Oh, I will, my dear Anne. Best of luck to you with your new family.
Tell Mr MacPherson that I hope his gout feels better real soon.
Thank you, Anne. I certainly will. Don't forget – silence is a virtue.
Oh, I won't. Goodbye!

[sung:]
A place where you're needed
A place where you need to be
It's a place that I've longed for
It's a home

Will there ever be a home?
So far from home
Finally home
Home sweet home
Too many kids at home
If only I had a home

For me!

The Lord's Prayer

[spoken:] Oh no, child. You're not writing a letter to the Queen of England! Let's try something a little more conventional.

[sung:] Our Father
[spoken:] How do you know it's a father and not a mother?

[sung:] In Heaven
[spoken:] How do you know there really is a heaven?
You'll find out soon enough if you don't hold your tongue, child.

[sung:] Hallowed be Thy name
[spoken:] Who's Ed?

[sung:]
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven

[spoken:]
I'll never be able to remember all this!
It's very simple.

[sung:]
Give us this day our daily bread
(Give us this day our daily bread)
Give us this day our daily bread
(Give us this day our daily bread)
Give us this day our daily bread

[spoken:]
Now, get yourself into bed, Anne.
What about the 'amen'? That's my favourite part!

[sung:]
Amen
(Amen)
Amen
(Amen)
Amen

Walk Like Sisters (Kindred Spirits)

When you look at the moon, do you smile and wonder who that man is?
When you wake in the morning light, can you find the fairies' footprints on your pillow?
When you walk on the path to school, do you hear the chipmunks yelling at their children?
And when you swim in the lake at night, do you pretend that you are a mermaid making wishes?

I always wondered when I'd find
Someone who would know what I'm thinking
Who wouldn't laugh or tease or find
My talking and scheming and constant daydreaming a mystery

We will walk like sisters; put your hand in mine
Sharing precious secrets; two lonely roads combine
When the world forgets you, and storm clouds block the light
I will not reject you; I'll guide you through the night
We'll be kindred spirits until the end of time

[spoken:]
Will you swear to be my friend forever and ever?
Sure!
I solemnly swear to be faithful to my bosom friend, Diana Barry, as long as the sun and moon shall endure.
[laughs] I solemnly swear to be faithful to my bosom friend, Anne Shirley, as long as the sun and moon shall endure. You are a funny girl, Anne.

[sung:]
I always wondered when I'd find
Someone who would know what I'm thinking
Who wouldn't laugh or tease or find
My talking and scheming and constant daydreaming a mystery

We will walk like sisters; put your hand in mine
Sharing precious secrets; two lonely roads combine
When the world forgets you, and storm clouds block the light
I will not reject you; I'll guide you through the night

We'll be kindred spirits (kindred spirits)
We'll be kindred spirits (forevermore)
We'll be kindred spirits (with every day, in every way)
We'll be kindred spirits until the end of time

Math and Mayhem

[spoken:] I can see we've lost complete control of ourselves. To get us back on track, we'll review our times tables.
[assorted groaning]
I'll be back in a moment.

Two times two is
Four!

Two times three is
Six!

Two times four is
Seven!
Eight.

Two times five is
Ten!

Two times six is
Twelve!

Two times seven is
Fifteen!
You're hopeless.
It's clear! He's gone!

[assorted chattering]

[sung:]
Who's that girl? What's her story?
Look at all that blazing red hair
I heard she's evil
I heard she's orphaned
I heard she hasn't a –
I really don't care

[spoken:] Hi, Gilbert!
What's so special about Gilbert Blythe?
What?

[sung:]
He's brilliant, he's handsome, he's tall and serene
His hair is so wavy, like a stormy ocean scene
His eyes are bright sapphires; they sparkle with life
I just know that someday I'll be his wife

[spoken:]
You're going to be his wife? I'm going to be his wife!
[arguing]
Boys are crazy!
We're crazy! Ha! We'll show you who's crazy!

[sung:]
You're silly and stupid, giggling girls
Talking and preening and shaking your curls
We wouldn't, we couldn't; you're out of your mind
We'd never marry one of your kind

[chatter]

[spoken:]
Mr Phillips is coming back! Sit, everybody!

Six times two is
Twelve!

Six times three is
Eighteen

Six times four is
Twenty-four.
Sounds great. Keep up the good work!

Stop touching me!
[chatter]
Please! Stop! I have something to say!
[groans]

[sung:]
Civilised children of good breeding don't behave in such hideous ways
Princes and kings bow to their ladies; ladies are [??]

[spoken:]
Just sit down!
[groans and boos]
What is going on in here?
Who is responsible for this?
It was the new girl!
What?

That Girl

There is something in that girl
Something I recognise
There is something I despise
In that girl
No challenge is left unmet
Every dare is a threat
To be more than she thought she'd be
Just like me

If I let my feelings go
And start to believe in dreams
Will she be all that she seems
That girl?

The quiet, so empty
She fills the space
Revives me, reminds me, defines me
The chatter, unyielding, seems to replace
The silence of this weathered face
The garden, so lovely
But useless without
The doorframe, the concrete
That makes it a house

I've been here, I'll be here
Like always, but still
It's nice to be noticed
By that girl

If I let my feelings go
(The questions, the laughter)
And start to believe in dreams
(All present; did I mention dreams?)
Will she be all that she seems
(I've been here, I'll be here
Like always, but still)
That girl?
(It's nice to be noticed
By that girl)

The Feud

Why are you surprised?
I told you she'd be trouble
It cannot be denied
It's so plain to see
First will be the lies
Then will be destruction
A cunning little thief
Hosting drunken teas

I have always had this gift
I merely want to share
To help, to guide, be neighbourly
And to show I care

The fire in her hair
Should have been a warning
Waiting in her lair
To intoxicate
Purely out of spite
Manipulated malice
Don't try to be contrite!
I can't tolerate

I have always had this gift
I merely want to share
To help, to guide, be motherly
And to show I care

How is it you blame this on a little girl?
This poor little girl
Have you never made your own mistakes?
So many mistakes
Maybe I've been blind all along
Too stern, too strict to share
She needs me to be motherly
And to show I care

If I had a child
So thirsty and so greedy
She'd sober up [??]
With a right good spanking
Everybody knows
To drink a cherry cordial
Three tumblers in a row
That's pure gluttony

(How is it you blame this on a little girl?)
Why are you surprised?
I told you she'd be trouble
It cannot be denied
It's so plain to see
(Have you never made your own mistakes?)
Purely out of spite
Manipulated malice
Don't try to be contrite!
I can't tolerate

I have always had this gift
I merely want to share
To help, to guide, be motherly (motherly) (neighbourly)
And to show I care

We'll be kindred spirits until the end of time

What Do You Call a Boy?

What do you call a boy who puts a frog in your desk?
What do you call a boy who pulls your hair?
Slimy, stinky and always thinking they're right?
I call them dreamy

What do you call a boy who splashes mud on your dress?
What do you call a boy who never shares?
Slow and lazy; they drive us crazy, all right
And still they're dreamy

What do you call a girl who gets all weak in the knees?
Faints and fawns and giggles, bats her eyes?
Prim and preening, sighing, crying; girls like her, there's no denying; why?
Because they're foolish, desperate, needy

What do you call a boy with big brown eyes and curly hair? (what?)
Even on his knees, he's really tall (oh no, not you too!)
First there'll be a big proposal, wedding in the altar, social
Tons of children running down the halls (what? ew!)

What do you call a boy who does exactly what you say?
Follows orders any time and all?
Snap your fingers and if he lingers, they're right
I call him perfect

Stop!

What do you call a boy who calls you 'Carrots'?
What do you call a boy who thinks he's smart?
Attention-seeking, can't stop speaking, must be better, good-grade getter
Always spells my name without an 'e'

What do you call a boy… Like me!

That Girl [reprise]

There is something in that girl
Something I can't deny
No challenge is left unmet
Every dare is a threat
To be more than she thought she'd be
Can't she see
That it's nice to be noticed
By that girl?

Haunted Wood

[spoken:]
Diana?
Is that you, Diana?
I know you're there, waiting to play a trick on me!
This isn't – funny!
What was that?
Old Man Sloane?
Oh dear! Where is it? Where did I put it?

[sung:]
Our Father
In Heaven

Come, dark sins are here
Come, dark sins are here
Come, dark sins are here
Come, dark sins are here

Our Father
(Come, dark sins are here)
In heaven
(Come, dark sins are here)
Thy kingdom come
(Come, dark sins are here)
Thy will be done
(Come, dark sins are here)

[spoken:]
Please don't let it be the White Lady!
Please, please don't let it be the White Lady!

One Little Drop

I'd never know what I did not know
Unless I'd start to answer
I thought I knew what I wanted most
A quiet life, a simple life
I stepped outside to a waterfall
When all I asked for was one little drop
I never knew what I thought I knew
Until I danced with you

I thought I wanted a waterfall
When all I needed was one little drop
I never knew what I thought I knew
Until I danced with you

Bend in the Road

The quiet, so empty
A cold, dark place
A child, forgotten
A poor freckled face

I never dreamed or, rather, quite believed
That someone would ever be there for me
Now I'm standing at the bend in the road

The quiet ended
The day you came
Indignant, exacting
About your name

I know that you never dreamed or, rather, quite believed
That someone would wait so long to help you see
How I've been here, waiting at the bend in the road

(Bend in the road)
Bend in the road
(Bend in the road)

Your kindness (I would be never be cruel to you)
Patience (Or never be short with you) and sacrifice (I'd do anything for you)
Defending, depending (You can always)
Love may (depend on me) not come round twice

I never dreamed or, rather, quite believed
That someone like you'd be standing next to me
No longer frightened or confused by the bend in the road

Longing, hoping, ever-wishing that you'd be here
At the bend in the road

(Bend in the road)
Bend in the road
(Bend in the road)

(Bend in the road
Bend in the road
Bend in the road
Bend in the road)

At the bend in the road
