Seussical The Musical – All For You Lyrics

GERTRUDE

I had a little trouble

‘Cause I grew a little tail.

Well, it wasn’t really little.

It was absolutely giant!

And it really was attractive

But you never even noticed,

So I felt a little silly even trying

Besides which the tail was too heavy

For normal flying.

HORTON

Go on.

GERTRUDE

Well, when the hunters caught you

I could see that I’d been foolish

‘Cause I couldn’t even help you

No, I couldn’t even fly.

And I got so very frightened

‘Cause I knew I had to save you.

No one else was gonna go to all the labor.

It was all up to me,

All you had was your next door neighbor.

GERTRUDE

So I ran to the doctor.

CAT AS DR. DAKE

The doctor named Dake.

And she said.-

GERTRUDE

My tail has been a mistake!

CAT AS DR. DAKE

And she said:

GERTRUDE

Dr. Dake, I’ve been foolish and vain.

Pluck it out! Get it off!

I won’t do it again!

CAT AS DR. DAKE

Pluck! Pluck! Pluck!

GERTRUDE

Ouch, it hurt a lot!

CAT AS DR. DAKE

Pluck! Pluck! Pluck!

GERTRUDE

Ooh, a tender spot

CAT AS DR. DAKE

Pluck! Pluck! Pluck!

GERTRUDE

Just a one feather tail…

DR. DAKE, GERTRUDE & BIRD GIRLS

But suddenly, Gertrude could sail!

GERTRUDE (dramatically)

I sailed on a junk

And was practically sunk

For you.

I trampled thorough the trees

Full of furious bees

For you.

I slogged through a fog

And a choking smog

Down a soggy slope

Through a stinking bog

While my slip was gripped

By a vicious dog

For you.

GERTRUDE BIRD GIRLS

I galloped through the snow ooh…

In eleven below

For you.

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Yes, even though I knew ooh…

I was catching the flu

For you

(Achoo! ) (achoo! )

And then came the hole ooh

Where I caught my sole ooh

And I rolled downhill ooh

Out of all control ooh

‘Till I broke my fall

On a jagged shoal

For you!

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ahh!

All for you

All for you

All for you

All for you

There’s nothing that I

Wouldn’t

And I couldn’t

And I haven’t gone through…

Ahh, aah, aah, aah!

(With tremendous conviction and grit! )

I sprained my little toe, but la-la-la-la-la!

I hobbled like so la-la-la-la!

For you. La-la-la-la-la-la-la!

Ooh… Ooh… Ooh

Then came the hit and run la-la-la-la-la!

But I staggered on one la-la-la-la!

For you. La-la-la-la-la-la-la!

Now, here I am, ahh-ah!

The worse for wear

And here you are ahh-ah!

I’m here!

You’re there!

And maybe now ah!

You’ll know I care ahh-ah!

For you! Ooh!

Ooh…

GERTRUDE

Oh, yes. And Horton, one more thing…

It took me seven weeks…

But I found your clover,

Too!
