"Suddenly Seymour" as written by and Howard Elliott Ashman Alan Menken....
Lift up your head, wash off your mascara
Here, take my Kleenex, wipe that lipstick away
Show me your face clean as the mornin'
I know things were bad but now they're okay

Suddenly, Seymour is standing beside you
You don't need no make-up don't have to pretend
Suddenly, Seymour is here to provide you
Sweet understandin', Seymour's your friend

Nobody ever treated me kindly
Daddy left early, Mama was poor
I'd meet a man and I'd follow him blindly
He'd snap his fingers me I'd say, "Sure"

Suddenly, Seymour is standing beside me
He don't give me orders, he don't condescend
Suddenly, Seymour is here to provide me
Sweet understanding, Seymour's my friend

Tell me this feeling last 'til forever
Tell me the bad times are clean washed away
Please understand that it's still strange and frightening
For losers like I've been it's so hard to say

Suddenly, Seymour
(Suddenly, Seymour)
He purified me
(He purified you)

Suddenly, Seymour
(Suddenly, Seymour)
Showed me I can
(Yes, you can)

Learn how to be more
The girl that's inside me
(The girl that's inside you)

With sweet understanding
(With sweet understanding)
With sweet understanding
(With sweet understanding)
With sweet understanding
Seymour's your man
