Don’t let me go

As most of you know, Shrek the Musical is my current Broadway obsession.  This is one of my favorite songs, as it is one of the best songs I have ever heard about best friends.

Here are the lyrics if you don’t want to listen to it, musical haters. It really is worth a look, though. Trust me on this one.

DONKEY:
Hey, hey, hey! You gotta let me go with you!
You don’t know what it’s like to be considered a freak!
Well maybe you do.
But that’s why we gotta stick together!
No, no, no! Don’t speak, don’t speak, don’t speak!

Just hear me out! I might surprise you.
I’ll be a friend, when others despise you.
Don’t roll your eyes! Stop with the mopin’.
You need a pal! My calendar’s open!

I’ll bring you soup, when you feel congested.
I’ll bail you out, when you get arrested!
I got your back, wha-wha-what, when things get scary.
And I’ll shave it, when it gets hairy!

Don’t let me go!
Don’t let me go!
Don’t let me go!
You need me!
You need me!

I’ll treat you right, and never get shoddy.
If you kill a man, I’ll hide the body!
So what do you say? You’re not responding…
I think we’re bonding!

Don’t let me go.
Don’t let me go.
Don’t let me go!
You need me.

You and me, we belong together.
Like butter and grits,
Like kibbles and bits,
Like yin and yang,
Stern and Trang,
Like Eng and Chang, attached at the hip
But not an old lady hip that might break
I’m gonna be on you like a fat kid on cake!

DONKEY (spoken):
Like Cupid and Psyche, like pop rocks and Mikey,
we’ll stick together like that Velcro stuff, I’m the fuzzy side; you’ll be the spiky.
Ooh! Like little kids and pajamas with those funny things at the bottom, you know, feeties.
Like donuts and… oh, what goes with donuts?

DONKEY:
Donuts and diabetes!

Don’t let me go!
Don’t let me go!
Don’t let me go!
Don’t let me go!
Hold me! Hug me! Take me, please!
Na-na-na-na-na-na, please don’t let me go!
I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you,
I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you!
Don’t let me go, Go! Go! Don’t let me g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-go!
