Ithaca Festival Show Chorus Lyrics

June 6, 2021

The Best Part is Coming Home Again

Chorus:

The best part is coming home again

To family, or maybe your best friends

You have found a place where you’re supposed to be when

The best part is coming home again

 

Better Together

Chorus:

I can think of plenty of stuff that’s in twos, that’s on my mind

Lots of things that happen in pairs I can use, long as they rhyme

 

Happy To Be Here

Chorus:

Happy to be here, right back here again

Happy to be here, back with my old friends

And though tomorrow it's another town

I'm happy to be here now

 

Here We All Are Once Again

Chorus:

Kick off your shoes, pull off your tie

Spread out the blanket, and open the wine

Dance in the sun, sing with your friends

Here we all are once again

 

Hold Out Your Hand

 Chorus:

Hold out your hand to those who cannot reach for you

Speak up for them that have no voice to say

Stand up for those who have no strength for walking

For all their tomorrows, do this for today

 

Holy crap, how did I get old?

Chorus:

Holy crap, how did I get old

I thought I was a big cheese, but I'm really just mold

“You’re as young as you feel” we’re always told

So holy crap, how did I get old

 

Ithaca Sunset

Chorus:

Watchin' the old Ithaca Sunset, it's like a painting on the sky

Watchin' the old Ithaca Sunset, and it makes me want to fly up to the

Old Ithaca Sunset, and I know that I'll be smilin' now

'Cause sometimes it just reminds me life is fine

 

Save the Bricks

Chorus:

Save the bricks I say, let’s save the bricks today

They’re a part of town, let’s try to keep ‘em ‘round

No matter what the cost, it’s far less than the loss

They’re not so hard to fix, let’s save the bricks

 

Singin’ in the Rain

Chorus

But I think it’s gonna clear up, though I couldn’t tell you why

Even though it’s mostly clouds, if you look real close

You can see the blue sky

So come hell or high water, thunder cloud or hurricane

I’ll be wishin’ for some sun, but if it doesn’t come

I’ll be singin’ in the rain

 

A Summers’ Dream

Chorus

Hold on to those hopes, hold on to those dreams

Hold both in your heart together

Bring dreams to your life, bring life to you dreams

And carry them on forever

 

Thank You Very Much

Chorus:

Thank you very much, thank you very, very, very much

Thank you very much, thank you very, very much

Thank you very much, thank you very, very, very much

Thank you very, very, very much
