‘No Way to Stop it’ Lyrics

 

Baroness

You dear attractive dewy-eyed idealist, Today you have to learn to be a realist.

 

Max

You may be bent on doing deed of daring due, But up against a shark, what can a herring do?

 

Baroness

Be wise, compromise.

 

Max

Compromise, and be wise!

 

Baroness

Let them think you’re on their side, be noncommittal.

 

Max

I will not bow my head to the men I despise!

 

Captain

You won’t have to bow your head to stoop a little.

 

Baroness

Why not learn to put your faith and your reliance, On an obvious and simple fact of science?

 

A crazy planet full of crazy people, Is somersaulting all around the sky. And everytime it turns another somersault, Another day goes by. And there’s no way to stop it, No, there’s no way to stop it. No, you can’t stop it even if you tried. So, I’m not going to worry, No, I’m not going to worry, Everytime I see another day go by.

 

Max

While somersaulting at a cockeyed angle, We make a cockeyed circle ‘round the sun. And when we circle back to where we started from, Another year has run.

 

Both

And there’s no way to stop it, No, there’s no way to stop it, If the earth wants to roll around the sun. You’re a fool if you worry. You’re a fool if you worry, Over anything but little number one.

 

Max

That’s you!

 

Baroness

That’s I!

 

Max

And I!

 

Captain Von Trapp

And me!

 

Max

That all absorbing character.

 

Baroness

That fastinating creature.

 

Captain Von Trapp

That super special feature,

 

All

Me!

 

Max

So every star on every whirling planet, And every constellation in the sky, Revolves around the center of the universe, That lovely thing called, I.

 

All

And there’s no way to stop it. No, there’s no way to stop it, And I know, though I cannot tell you why (sigh). Just as long as I’m living, Just as long as I’m living, There’ll be nothing else as wonderful as I.I! I! I! Nothing else as wonderful as I!
