From THE WIZARD OF CLAUS: THE MUSICAL

Christmas is fast approaching and the children of the neighborhood can't contain their excitement. SALLY--feeling ignored by her parents since the arrival of her baby brother--has other thoughts about the holiday.

THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR
(Music and lyrics by Jason Bravo)

KIDS
FA LA LA, LA LA LA, LA LA LA, LA
FA LA LA, LA LA LA, LA LA LA, LA
FA LA LA, LA LA LA

IT'S ONLY ONE DAY
UNTIL THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR.
DON'T KNOW HOW
I'LL GET TO SLEEP TONIGHT!
IT'S ONLY ONE DAY
UNTIL THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR.
LOOKS LIKE I'LL
BE COUNTING SHEEP TONIGHT.

WE KNOW WHO'S BRINGING TOYS
FOR ALL GOOD GIRLS AND BOYS
AND WE KNOW WE'VE BEEN
GOOD ALL YEAR
AND NOW IT'S ALMOST HERE!

IT'S ONLY ONE DAY
UNTIL THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR.
I CAN HARDLY WAIT.
WE'VE COUNTED DOWN THE DAYS,
SO PLEASE, NO SLEIGH DELAYS.
CHRISTMAS, DON'T BE LATE!

IT'S ONLY ONE DAY
UNTIL THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR.
DON'T KNOW HOW
I'LL GET TO SLEEP TONIGHT!

SALLY
Yeah, with that baby crying!

KIDS
IT'S ONLY ONE DAY
UNTIL THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR.
LOOKS LIKE I'LL
BE COUNTING SHEEP TONIGHT.

SALLY
Or dirty diapers!

KIDS
WE KNOW WHO'S BRINGING TOYS

SALLY
Who cares!?

KIDS
FOR ALL GOOD GIRLS AND BOYS

SALLY
Big deal!

KIDS
AND WE KNOW WE'VE BEEN
GOOD ALL YEAR
AND NOW IT'S ALMOST HERE!

SALLY
Yawn!

KIDS
IT'S ONLY ONE DAY
UNTIL THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR.
I CAN HARDLY WAIT.

SALLY
I can!

KIDS
WE'VE COUNTED DOWN THE DAYS

SALLY
Little do you know!

KIDS
SO PLEASE, NO SLEIGH DELAYS.

SALLY
You'll see!

KIDS
CHRISTMAS, DON'T BE LATE!

SALLY
WHO CARES?! WHO CARES?!
IT'S JUST ANOTHER DAY.
ANOTHER DAY OF "ISN'T YOUR LITTLE BABY SO CUTE!" Blech!
IT MAKES ME SICK.
AND I'M SO DONE WITH IT!
IF I HEAR ONE MORE "COOCHIE COO,"
I KNOW I'M GONNA PUKE!

IT'S ONLY ONE DAY.
IT'S JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER DAY.
AND THEY'LL END UP
JUST IGNORING ME.
IT'S JUST A DUMB DAY.
IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT I SAY.
ALL THIS BABY TALK
IS BORING ME!

TELL ME: WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL?!
THOSE WORDS AREN'T EVEN REAL!
HAVE YOU HEARD A SINGLE
THING I'VE SAID?
LOOK: I'M STANDING ON MY HEAD!!

(She does.)

THERE'S MORE THAN ONE WAY FOR YOU TO SHOW ME YOU DON'T CARE
AND THAT YOU LOVE THE BABY MORE.
IT'S THE PERFECT HOLIDAY
TO SAY:

MOM and DAD
(From the window, as SALLY lip-synchs the following)
GO IN YOUR ROOM AND PLAY!

SALLY
THAT'S WHAT CHRISTMAS IS FOR.

(The KIDS' exuberance overtakes SALLY's negativity. As the song continues, the song speeds up as they get more and more excited. They almost knock SALLY down in their weaving and skipping in and out. They sing:)

KIDS
IT'S ONLY ONE DAY
UNTIL THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR.
YOU-KNOW-WHO
IS ON HIS WAY TONIGHT!
IT'S ONLY ONE DAY
UNTIL THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR.
HE'LL BE TUNING UP
HIS SLEIGH TONIGHT.

TOMORROW IS THE DAY
WE'LL EAT COOKIES AND PLAY
WITH ALL OUR FRIENDS
AND ALL THE THINGS
THAT JOLLY OLD MAN BRINGS.

IT'S ONLY ONE DAY
UNTIL THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR.
I CAN HARDLY WAIT.
WE'VE COUNTED DOWN THE DAYS
SO PLEASE NO SLEIGH DELAYS.
CHRISTMAS, DON'T BE LATE!

IT'S ALMOST HERE:
THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR!

(SALLY blows a razzie.)
