From the soundtrack movie musical 'Into The Woods' Music&Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim *sorry for some mistakes: 0:34→Only then can the curse be undone 2:19→She would punished me with the curse of ugliness if I ever lost any of them 2:47→Well, that's another story, never mind, anyway Lyrics: BAKER: Who might that be? BAKER'S WIFE: We've sold our last loaf of bread! BAKER: It's the witch from next door BAKER'S WIFE: We have no bread. THE WITCH: I don't want your bread. BAKER: Now what is it you wish? THE WITCH: It's not what I wish! It's what you wish! Nothing cooking in that belly now, is there? And there will never be Unless you do exactly as I say In three day's time a blue moon will appear Only then can the curse be undone BAKER'S WIFE: What curse? THE WITCH: The one I placed on this house BAKER: What are you talking about? THE WITCH: In the past, when you were no more than a babe Your father brought his young wife and you to this cottage They were a lovely couple But not lovely neighbours! You see, your mother was with child And she developed an unusual appetite She admired my beautiful garden And she told your father That what she wanted More than anything in the world (rapping) was...Greens, greens, nothing but greens: Parsley, peppers, cabbages and celery Asparagus and watercress and fiddleferns and lettuce! He said, "All right," But it wasn't, quite, 'cause I caught him in the autumn in my garden one night! He was robbing me Raping me, Rooting through my rutabaga, raiding my arugula and ripping up my rampion (My champion! My favorite!) I should have laid a spell on him right there I could turned him into stone Or a dog or a chair... But I let him have the rampion, I'd lots to spare, in return, however, I said, "Fair is fair: You can let me have the baby that your wife will bear And we'll call it square" BAKER: I had a brother? THE WITCH: No! But you had a sister BAKER: Where is she? THE WITCH: She's mine now. And you'll never find her Small price to pay for what else your father stole from me It cost me my youth and my beauty My mother warned me She would punished me with the curse of ugliness if I ever lost any of them... WIFE: Lost what? THE WITCH: The beans! BAKER&WIFE: Beans? THE WITCH: The special beans! I let him go, I didn't know he'd stolen my beans! I was watching him crawl, back over the wall! When Bang! Crash! And the lightning flash! Well, that's another story, never mind, anyway At last the big day came I made my claim. "Oh, don't take away the baby," They shrieked and screeched But I did, and I hid her where she'll never be reached Your father cried, and your mother died. When for extra measure, I admit it was a pleasure, I said, "Sorry, I'm still not mollified. And I laid little spell on them You, too, son That your family tree Would always be a barren one... BAKER'S WIFE: No! BAKER: How could you do that? THE WITCH: And when your mother died Your father deserted you Your father was no father So why should you be? Now there's no more fuss And there's no more scenes, And my garden thrives, You should see my nectarines! But I'm tellling you the same I tell kings and queens: Don't ever never ever mess around with my greens! Especially the beans!
