Leonardo & Salai

 Leonardo is exasperated by Salai's lifestyle.
He tries to convince him that it's time to be more responsible and give some thought to his future

Lyric

LEONARDO

THERE’S A CERTAIN TRUTH, WHEN YOU’RE

JUST A CALLOW YOUTH, THEN YOU’RE

GOING TO WASTE SOME TIME

 

     SALAI

IS THAT REALLY SUCH A CRIME?

 

     LEONARDO

WELL NO BUT...

THERE MUST COME A DAY, WHEN WE

PUT OUR TOYS AWAY, AND WE

NEED TO MAKE OUR NAME

 

     SALAI

DO I HAVE TO?

 

     LEONARDO

YES YOU DO, SUCH A SHAME,

BUT IT’S TIME, TO SETTLE DOWN

TIME... TO SETTLE DOWN

    

     SALAI

WHAT YOU SAY IS TRUE, BUT I’VE GOT

ANOTHER POINT OF VIEW, WHY NOT

ENJOY IT WHILE YOU CAN..

 

     LEONARDO

BUT YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE A PLAN

MY BOY, AND..

YOU NEED TO GET A TRADE, BECAUSE

MONEY MUST BE MADE, BECAUSE

YOU’LL BE MOVING OUT

    

     SALAI

WILL I?

 

     LEONARDO

DO I HAVE TO SPELL IT OUT

THAT IT’S TIME, TO SETTLE DOWN

TIME...

 

 

     SALAI

TO SETTLE DOWN?

 

     LEONARDO

FIND A GIRL, MAYBE THEN YOU COULD MARRY

 

     SALAI

SETTLE DOWN!

 

     LEONARDO

GET A HOUSE – HAVE SOME CHILDREN, THERE’S NO HURRY,

YOU MOVE UP IN THE WORLD - YOU’RE EVERYBODY’S FRIEND

LIFE CAN BE A PEACH, DEAR BOY, I BESEECH YOU

SETTLE DOWN!

    

     SALAI

WITH A WIFE WHO GETS BIGGER BY THE MINUTE

    

     LEONARDO

SETTLE DOWN!

 

     SALAI

STILL YOUR LIFE, BUT SOMEONE ELSE IS IN IT

YOU GET A LOT OF THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW THAT YOU WANTED

AND A MOUNTAIN OF DEBT, YEAH THAT’S WHAT YOU GET;

WHEN YOU SETTLE DOWN, WHEN YOU SETTLE DOWN   

    

     LEONARDO

 (Speak Sing)                     

BUT IS IT REALLY SUCH A BAD IDEA?

A WIFE’S A BLESSING NOT A THING TO FEAR

MARRIAGE HAS A LOT TO RECOMMEND IT

YOU GIVE YOUR TIME, AND MONEY

 

     SALAI

 - AND THEY SPEND IT!

WHY, LOOK AT ALL THE MARRIED MEN WE KNOW

WOULD THEY CHANGE IT IF THEY COULD

 

     LEONARDO

NO...

 

     LEONARDO & SALAI

   (LOOK AT EACH OTHER)

YES!!

 

     LEONARDO & SALAI                   

SETTLE DOWN

HAVE A DRINK, THEN WE’LL THINK ABOUT IT,

    

     SALAI

THE MORE I THINK, THE MORE I START TO DOUBT IT,

AND IF I MISS MY CHANCE, WELL THERE’LL ALWAYS BE ANOTHER      

    

     LEONARDO

LIFE’S NOT THAT SIMPLE, AS YOU’LL CERTAINLY DISCOVER

SETTLE DOWN!

 

     LEONARDO & SALAI

WE NEED A MATE, IT’S HARD TO DENY IT

A PLEASANT FATE, (BUT) THERE’S NO HURRY TO TRY IT  

THEY SAY A LITTLE LOVE CAN GO A LONG WAY,

BUT I CAN’T HELP FEELING THERE’S A PRICE TO PAY

WHEN YOU SETTLE DOWN

WHEN... YOU SETTLE DOWN

WHEN... YOU SETTLE DOWN

SETTLE DOWN
