Out of this world! It’s going to be out of this world when I get where I’m going to… I will not be afraid. I’m coming out on top and I’m not going to stop until I’m through. Destiny is right around the corner. Any corner anywhere will do. When I get there I will know this is where I was meant to go. Hey, Destiny, hello! I’m coming for you. Well, I’m headed down this big, red desert road to that little, blue oasis. That is where I’ve got to go. Perhaps there’s someone there who will listen. Who will care as long as I am anywhere out of this world? Out of this world! It’s going to be out of this world! It’s showing me the way to go, it’s glowing so blue… Like a beacon in the night… Why does it feel so right? Hey, Destiny! Hold tight! I’m coming for you! Destiny is right around the corner. Any corner anywhere will do. When I get there I will know this is where I was meant to go. Hey, Destiny, hello! I’m coming for you. I’m coming for you so thanks for showing me… Coming for you the wind is blowing me… I know it’s going to be… Out of this world!

Are we alone in the universe? Is there someone out there, somewhere? Is that better? Is it worse? Is it just one, gigantic emptiness? If I am so alone on Earth Am I alone in the universe? Am I the only one of my kind? Is that why I could leave it all behind the way I did? What did I think that I was going to find? It’s an easy thing to just make fun of people and their ridiculous beliefs. But, sometimes, I’ll admit, I get jealous of their sense of inner peace. Is it so bad to imagine that emotional relief or be alone in the universe? Well, I don’t really think that I am better Than someone who believes those things are real. If that’s what she wants to think, then let her. Who am I to tell her how to feel? Am I alone in the universe? Is there someone trying to find me to remind me what I’m worth And teach me how to never doubt again and say these words: “You’re not alone in the universe.”

There are those that can do and those that can teach. I can do both and I practice what I preach. I am your guru. I am your guide. You’re right at the door. I can let you inside. So sit up and listen. You will get your turn if you’re willing to learn. Everybody needs a buddy, Buddy. I can take you under my wing. There is more that makes the world go round than money, Honey. I can show you everything! You gotta learn it before you earn it. It would be prudent to be a student. It’s pretty good by accident but it’s great when you know what you’re doing. I am a tutor. I’m a recruiter. I have the knowledge you won’t get at college. You got a free education right here, my Dear. So eyes up front! Give me your ears… I can show you something that you will not forget. I can be your teacher if you be my teacher’s pet. I know it can get hard, so don’t go through it all alone. It’s better with a buddy than to do it on your own. Everybody needs a buddy, Buddy. I can take you under my wing. There is more that makes the world go round than money, Honey. I can show you everything!

I am walking a tightrope, so high off the ground inching my way across, trying not to look down. I could fall to the left. I could fall to the right. What can I do but hang on for dear life? Such a beautiful view from this dizzying, terrible height. I’m a daredevil living dangerously. I’m a daredevil. Just watch me… It’s just me and the rope up here, I’m all alone. Stuck in the middle with nowhere to go. There may be no hope for me, but I want to go home. And I swing to the left, and I sway to the right What can I do but hold on for dear life? Such a beautiful view from this dizzying, terrible height. I’m a daredevil living dangerously. I’m a daredevil. Just watch me. I am walking a tightrope…

Just lay it down on me. You can tell me anything. I’m ready to believe. I know that you’re hurtin’ and you doubt your sanity. A secret is a burden but the truth will set you free! But the With Chorus: truth will set you free! Garrison: Can I get a witness? Will somebody testify? Can I get a witness? Tell me, have you seen the light? Can I get a witness? (Hoo…) Can I get a witness? (Hoo…) Witness: Dig this!

Chorus: Micro-cosmopolitan life! Micro-cosmopolitan life! Honey: Thanks to modern thinking everything is shrinking. Buddy: The world is getting smaller by the minute… Starla: Just take the mini-skirt and teeny French bikini… Chorus: Micro-cosmopolitan life! Buddy: It’s the Atomic Age, where everything is new. We’re on the cutting edge. There’s nothing we can’t do. Chorus: Micro-cosmopolitan life! Honey: Instant coffee, minute rice, TV dinner, - must be nice! - Everything is happening so speedily.

The Goddess of Love is in the house! Ha ha! Nobody said it was going to be easy. I didn’t say it was fair. Where do you get these ideas from? You had a choice and you made the wrong one, now You’re going to pay for it You’re going to pay for it Get on your knees and pray for it You’re not going anywhere I’m the real Miss Universe I always get what I want. I always get what I want. What did you think was going to happen? Thought you could just get away? You know that you’re mine and you know that you’re stuck. You’re all out of time and you’ve run out of luck, now You’re going to pay for it You’re going to pay for it Get on your knees and pray for it You’re not going anywhere I’m the real Miss Universe I always get what I want. I always get what I want.

I don’t want to rule the world, let alone two… She was the beauty of the universe, so what could I do? No one says no to her… I had to go to her… It may be wrong What I have done but I don’t belong to anyone I have to be my own Martian. Outer space is a cold and lonely place. But if that's what it takes to be free Then I'd rather be alone stuck out there on my own as long as I'm me. I have to be my own Martian. Because a martian's got to do what a martian's got to do and I have to be true to the martian who I am I have to be my own Martian.

Honey: I know I should be practical. I know I should resist. But when I see a shooting star I have to make a wish. Last night when I saw that light fall across the sky I knew it was a one-time chance, and so I had to try. I crossed my fingers and softly spoke an incantation to evoke a dream come true to follow through I made a wish and now here are you… I was getting frantic, feeling quite romantic so in a sudden panic! I wished for somebody. I was so alone. I wished for somebody to call my own. I wished for somebody on a shooting star. I wished for you, Buddy… and now here you are. And now the Man in the Moon is winking at us He knows that we’re in Love and every time I think about us I thank my lucky stars above. I thank my lucky stars that twinkle in your eyes. I thank my lucky stars up there in the skies You fell down from the heavens like you were created for me I wished upon a shooting star and here you are before me Could I be wishing for too much if I wish you would adore me But here you are and so I thank my lucky stars! Buddy: Star light, star bright, what can I do? I’m just spaced-out on you. Honey: Star light, star bright, you’re my wish come true… I’m just spaced out on you. Duet: I thank my lucky stars that twinkle in your eyes. I thank my lucky stars up there in the skies Honey: You fell down from the heavens - Buddy: It’s like you were created for me. Honey: I wished upon a shooting star Buddy: Yes, and here you are before me Duet: Could I be wishing for too much if I wish you would adore me But here you are and so I thank my lucky stars!
