"I've Got a Dream" as written by Glenn Slater and Alan Menken....
I'm malicious, mean and scary
My sneer could curdle dairy
And violence-wise, my hands are not the cleanest
But despite my evil look
And my temper, and my hook
I've always yearned to be a concert pianist
Can'tcha see me on the stage performin' Mozart?
Tickling the ivories 'til they gleam?
Yep, I'd rather be called deadly
For my killer show-tune medley
Thank you!
'Cause way down deep inside
I've got a dream

He's got a dream!
He's got a dream!

See, I ain't as cruel and vicious as I seem!
Though I do like breaking femurs
You can count me with the dreamers
Like everybody else
I've got a dream!

I've got scars and lumps and bruises
Plus something here that oozes
And let's not even mention my complexion
But despite my extra toes
And my goiter, and my nose
I really want to make a love connection
Can't you see me with a special little lady
Rowin' in a rowboat down the stream?
Though I'm one disgusting blighter
I'm a lover, not a fighter
'Cause way down deep inside
I've got a dream
I've got a dream!

He's got a dream!
I've got a dream!
He's got a dream!

And I know one day romance will reign supreme!
Though my face leaves people screaming
There's a child behind it, dreaming
Like everybody else
I've got a dream

Tor would like to quit and be a florist
Gunther does interior design
Ulf is into mime
Attila's cupcakes are sublime
Bruiser knits
Killer sews
Fang does little puppet shows

And Vladimir collects ceramic unicorns!

I have dreams, like you, no, really!
Just much less touchy-feely
They mainly happen somewhere
Warm and sunny
On an island that I own
Tanned and rested and alone
Surrounded by enormous piles of money

I've got a dream!
She's got a dream!
I've got a dream!
She's got a dream!
I just want to see the floating
Lanterns gleam!

Yeah!

And with every passing hour
I'm so glad I left my tower,
Like all you lovely folks
I've got a dream!

She's got a dream!
He's got a dream!
They've got a dream!
We've got a dream!
So our diff 'rences ain't
Really that extreme!
We're one big team!
Call us brutal
Sick

Sadistic

And grotesquely optimistic

'Cause way down deep inside
We've got a dream!

I've got a dream!
I've got a dream!

I've got a dream!
I've got a dream!
I've got a dream!

I've got a dream!

Yes way down deep
Inside, I've got a dream!
Yeah!
