SEAWEED
(climbing in Penny's window)
Psst Penny! What happened?!

PENNY (strapped into bed)
My mother's punishing me for going to jail without permission!

SEAWEED
Well, I'm here to save the fair maiden in her tower.

PENNY
Oh, Seaweed!

LINK (sneaking into jail)
Tracy, you took beautiful behind bars!

TRACY
It must be the low-watt instutionai lighting!

LINK
Oh Tracy, they can keep us from kissing,
but they can't stop us from singing!

LINK
Once i was a selfish fool
Who never understood
I never looked inside myself
Though on the outside, i looked good!

Then we met and you made me
The man i am today
Tracy, i'm in love with you
No matter what you weigh
'Cause...

LINK (& ENSEMBLE)
Without love
Life is uke the seasons with
No summer
Without love
Life is rock 'n' roll without
A drummer

Tracy, i'll be yours forever
'Cause 1 never wanna be
Without love
Tracy, never set me free
No, i ain't lyin'
Never set me free, Tracy,
No, no, no!!

TRACY
Once i was a simple girl
Then stardom came to me
But i was still a nothing
Though a thousand fans may
Disagree

ENSEMBLE
Tracy!!

TRACY
Fame was just a prison
Signing autographs a bore
I didn't have a clue
'Til you came banging on my door

TRACY (& ENSEMBLE)
That without love
Life is like my dad without his bromo
Without love
Life is making out with perry como!

Darling, i'll be yours forever
'Cause i never wanna be
Without love
So darling, throw away the key

LINK & TRACY
I'm yours forever

TRACY
Throw away the key

LINK, TRACY& ENSEMBLE
Yeah, yeah, yeah!

SEAWEED
Living in the ghetto
Black is everywhere ya go
Who'd 've thought i'd love a girl
With skin as white as winter's snow

PENNY
In my ivory tower
Life was just a hostess snack
But now i've tasted chocolate
And i'm never going back

PENNY & SEAWEED & ENSEMBLE
'Cause without love

SEAWEED
Life is like a beat that you can't follow

PENNY & SEAWEED & ENSEMBLE
Without love

PENNY
Life is doris day at the apollo

PENNY & SEAWEED & ENSEMBLE
Darling, i'll be yours forever
'Cause i never wanna be
Without love

SEAWEED
So darling, never set me free

PENNY & SEAWEED
I'm yours forever
Never set me free

PENNY & SEAWEED & ENSEMBLE
No, no, no!

LINK
If you're locked up in this prison, trace
I don't know what i'll do

TRACY
Link, i've got to break out
So that i can get my hands on you

SEAWEED
And girl, if i can't touch you
Now i'm gonna lose control

PENNY
Seaweed, you're my black white knight
I've found my blue-eyed soul

SEAWEED & ENSEMBLE
Sweet freedom is our goal

LINK
Trace, i wanna kiss ya!

TRACY
Then i can't wait for parole!

(Link & Seaweed break their girls out of their respective prisons
and continue singing... of course)

ALL
'Cause without love

SEAWEED
Life is like a prom that won't invite us

ALL
Without love

LINK
Life's getting my big break and laryngitis

ALL
Without love

PENNY
Life's a '45' when you can't buy it

ALL
Without love

TRACY
Life is like my mother on a diet

ALL
Like a week that's only mondays
Only ice cream never sundaes
Like a circle with no center
Like a door marked "do not enter!"

DARLING, I'LL BE YOURS FOREVER
'Cause 1 never wanna be...

Without love

PENNY & LINK
Ys now you've captured me

ENSEMBLE
Without love

SEAWEED & TRACY
I surrender happily

ENSEMBLE
Without love

PENNY
Oh seaweed

ALL
Never set me free

PENNY & SEAWEED
No, no, no

TRACY & LINK
No, i ain't lyin'

PENNY & SEAWEED
Never set me free

ALL
No, no, no
No, i dont wanna live without

PENNY
Love, love, love

LINK
Yeah, yeah, yeah

ALL
Darling, you had best believe me,
Never leave me without love!

    General CommentWhat does "Life's a '45' when you can't buy it" mean?
    And what is the Perry Como reference about?
    Any ideas?
    I love this song though, it's my fave song off the Hairspray soundtrack.
