Press On - Raised - Royal Kingdom
PRESS ON
Ensemble (Townspeople/Huntsman/Guards/Ladies, Enchantress)
Solo:
Gosh it disturbs us to see you dear king,
looking so down in the dumps.
Solo:
Everyone here’d love to help you dear king
This mystery’s got us quite stumped.
Solo:
There’s no man around who’s not troubled by this. We’ll all sign on as your spies.
Solo:
Everyone’s interest is captured by this, And we all really want to know why…
Ensemble:
No one knows where they’ve gone.
Why the princesses yawn.
Why their slippers are falling apart every dawn.
We don’t want there to be any danger,
But there could be a thickening plot.
Look around for there could be a stranger.
Though any among us is stranger than not.
(King and Evil Queen exit.)
We will find where they’ve gone.
Why the princesses yawn.
Why their slippers are falling apart every dawn.
This mystery does seem intimidating.
We’ll show the king that we’re on.
Solo:
Give five hurrahs, give twelve hip-hips. The princesses might give us clues from their lips.
Ensemble:
We will find where they’ve gone.
Why the princesses yawn.
And the princesses will be so fun to spy on.
For there’s no man in town who’s not greedy.
And the king’s got an endless supply.
Not a bit of his kingdom is needy.
That’s true, but think of the wonderful things we could buy.
We will find where they’ve gone.
Why the princesses yawn.
We’ll decipher the clues no one could pick up on.

Solo:
I’m especially good at investigating!
Ensemble:
Come on, the challenge is on!
(chase scene)
Ensemble:
No one knows where they’ve gone.
Why the princesses yawn.
Why they’re sleeping all day and completely withdrawn.
By the end of this week we’ll be celebrating!
Find where they’ve gone… press on!
