These are the answers to Another Period Musical Lyrics Quiz that I posted last week. Thanks to everyone who played! I was quite impressed by the knowledge of musicals you all seem to possess!
Your scores are below the answers so don't forget to check those out.

Here are the answers with the song titles linked to YouTube videos for you to watch and hear the songs in their entirety. 


Put On Your Sunday Clothes when you feel down and out
Strut down the street and have your picture took
Dressed like a dream your spirits seem to turn about
That Sunday shine is a certain sign
That you feel as fine as you look!
Beneath your parasol, the world is all a smile
That makes you feel brand new down to your toes
Get out your feathers
Your patent leathers
Your beads and buckles and bows
For there's no blue Monday in your Sunday clothes!

Song: Put On Your Sunday Clothes
Musical: Hello, Dolly!


Waitin' For My Dearie, an' happy am I
to hold my heart till he comes strollin' by.
When he comes, my dearie, one look an' I'll know
That he's the dearie I've been wantin' so.
Though I'll live forty lives till the day he arrives,
I'll not ever, ever grieve.
For my hopes will be high that he'll come strollin' by;
For ye see, I believe
That there's a laddie weary, and wanderin' free,
Who's  waitin' for his dearie :

Song: Waitin' For My Dearie
Musical: Brigadoon


A gentle breeze from Hushaby Mountain
Softly blows o'er lullaby bay.
It fills the sails of boats that are waiting--
Waiting to sail your worries away.
It isn't far to Hushaby Mountain
And your boat waits down by the key.
The winds of night so softly are sighing--
Soon they will fly your troubles to sea.
So close your eyes on  Hushaby Mountain .
Wave good-bye to cares of the day.
And watch your boat from Hushaby Mountain
Sail far away from lullaby bay.

Song: Hushaby Mountain
Musical: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang


I love you, A Bushel And A Peck!
A Bushel And A Peck, and a hug around the neck!
A hug around the neck, and a barrel and a heap
A barrel and a heap, and I'm talkin' in my sleep.
About you.
About you!
About you!
My heart is leapin'!
I'm having trouble sleepin'!
'Cause I love you, A Bushel And A Peck
You bet your pretty neck I do!
Doodle, oodle, oodle.
Doodle, oodle, oodle.
Doodle oodle oodle oo.

Song: A Bushel And A Peck
Musical: Guys and Dolls (Jr. Version)
Note: A Bushel And A Peck was not performed in the 1955 film version but was replaced with a more risque song number. The Jr. Version of Guys and Dolls is usually used for High School productions. I linked the song title above to a sweet version of A Bushel And A Peck from the old Lawrence Welk TV show.


A robin feathering his nest
Has very little time to rest
While gathering his bits of twine and twig
Though quite intent in his pursuit
He has a merry tune to toot
He knows a song will move the job along - for

A Spoon Full of Sugar helps the medicine go down
The medicine go down-wown
The medicine go down
Just  A Spoon Full of Sugar  helps the medicine go down
In a most delightful way

Song: A Spoon Full of Sugar
Musical: Mary Poppins


I like to be in America
Okay by me in America
Everything free in America
For a small fee in America
Buying on credit is so nice
One look at us and they charge twice
I have my own washing machine
What will you have though to keep clean?
Skyscrapers bloom in America
Cadillacs zoom in America
Industry boom in America
Twelve in a room in America

Song: America
Musical: West Side Story


Good Mornin',
Good Mornin'!
We've talked the whole night through,
Good Mornin'
Good Mornin' to you.
Good Mornin',   Good Mornin' !
It's great to stay up late,
Good Mornin',   Good Mornin'  to you.

When the band began to play
The sun was shinin' bright.
Now the milkman's on his way,
It's too late to say goodnight.
So,   Good Mornin' ,   Good Mornin' !
Sunbeams will soon smile through,
Good Mornin',   Good Mornin' , to you,
And you, and you, and you!

Song: Good Mornin'
Musical: Singin' In The Rain


Consider Yourself at home
Consider Yourself one of the family
We've taken to you so strong
It's clear we're going to get along
Consider Yourself well in
Consider Yourself  part of the furniture
There isn't a lot to spare
Who cares?..What ever we've goin we share!

If it should chance to be
We should see
Some harder days
Empty larder days
Why grouse?
Always a chance we'll meet
Somebody to foot the bill
Then the drinks are on the house!
Consider Yourself our mate
We do't want to have no fuss,
For after some consideration, we can state
Consider Yourself
One of us!

Song: Consider Yourself (sorry about the funny audio)
Musical: Oliver!


"Clang, clang, clang" went the Trolley
"Ding, ding, ding" went the bell
"Zing, zing, zing" went my heartstrings
For the moment I saw him I fell

"Chug, chug, chug" went the motor
"Bump, bump, bump" went the brake
"Thump, thump, thump" went my heartstrings
When he smiled, I could feel the car shake

Song: The Trolley Song
Musical: Meet Me In St. Louis


The girls today in society
Go for classical poetry,
So to win their hearts one must quote with ease
Aeschylus and Euripides.
But the poet of them all
Who will start 'em simply ravin'
Is the poet people call
The bard of Stratford-on-Avon.

Brush Up Your Shakespeare,
Start quoting him now.
Brush Up Your Shakespeare
And the women you will wow.
Just declaim a few lines from "Othella"
And they think you're a heckuva fella.
If your blonde won't respond when you flatter 'er
Tell her what Tony told Cleopaterer,
And if still, to be shocked, she pretends well,
Just remind her that "All's Well That Ends Well."
Brush Up Your Shakespeare
And they'll all kowtow.

Song: Brush Up Your Shakespeare
Musical: Kiss Me Kate


The sun'll come out
Bet your bottom dollar
That Tomorrow
There'll be sun!

Just thinkin' about
Clears away the cobwebs,
And the sorrow
'Til there's none!

When I'm stuck a day
That's gray,
And lonely,
I just stick out my chin
And Grin,
And Say,

The sun'll come out
So ya gotta hang on
'Til Tomorrow
Come what may
Tomorrow! Tomorrow !
I love ya Tomorrow !
You're always
A day
A way!

Song: Tomorrow
Musical: Annie


Be Our Guest!   Be Our Guest !
Put our service to the test
Tie your napkin 'round your neck, cherie
And we'll provide the rest
Soup du jour
Hot hors d'oeuvres
Why, we only live to serve
Try the grey stuff
It's delicious
Don't believe me? Ask the dishes
They can sing, they can dance
After all, Miss, this is France
And a dinner here is never second best
Go on, unfold your menu
Take a glance and then you'll
Be Our Guest
Oui, our guest

Song: Be Our Guest (also the animated film)
Musical: Beauty and the Beast


Bonus Points Songs
These two songs come from musicals of well known Jane Austen books

Fine eyes
She has fine eyes
Full of mystical charms
The kind of fine eyes
That illumine her face
And a figure
Light and pleasing
Full of feminine grace
That begs me to embrace
And keep her safe in my arms

I long to tell her my feelings
I yearn to give her my heart
And share the dream I'm concealing
But how can I tell her when we are apart?

And those fine eyes
Clever brown eyes
Have a will of their own
Why do they hypnotize?
They never leave me alone.

Song: Fine Eyes
Musical: Pride and Prejudice: The New Musical
Sung by: Mr. Darcy (about Elizabeth Bennet's "fine eyes")


Why do I stand
Mute as a post
Trembling hand
Pale as a ghost
So many things I should tell her
Before she goes away
Stomach and head
All in a bind
Leaving unsaid
All of the things I should say
Only a few more hours
Till you are gone for good
I'd lay my heart before you
If I could

If I could I would tell you
How the last three weeks
Have made me understand
What it means to have a friend
If I could I would tell you
How I wish our time together
Would go on and on
And never end
If I could I would take your precious hand
And I'd bring it to my lips
And I'd let my feelings show
If I could I would get down on my knees
And I'd beg you not to go.
Don't go!

*Watches S&S video*


Um, anyways. Nice video! I like it! I was just thinking how some of those would be nice as a music video! :) Sometimes I wish I could make those ones with actual clips and not just pictures... but I can't. ;)
