Silence Is Golden

This song is by Alan Menken and appears on the compilation album The Music Behind the Magic (1994).

You won't sing, you won't speak
Not a word, not a squeak
Not a peep, not a squeal
That's the price, love, that's the deal

But silence, silence is golden, my dear
Up above they hate chatter
So what does it matter
If you become mute -- nobody likes a loudmouth! --

I mean it
Silence, silence is golden, my dear
Don't you think you should try it?
They'll say, "She's so quiet, so shy, and so cute"

Well, take it or leave it, that's all, that's the bargain
Go on take a stand, make a choice
Remember, you'll get the legs and the lungs and the prince
All I get is the voice

And you'll be silent, but silence is golden, sign here
There's no choice for you since you're in love with a prince
But relax I've been told
Silence is gold

Beluga, Sevruga, come winds of the Caspian Sea
Laryngitis, Glacydis, Ad pax laryngitis la voce to me

Now here it goes
Ankles and toes
Almost complete
Legs and feet
Enjoy it, deploy it, this form
Your's to keep
There, I've done it, you're human, good luck
And breath deep, dear
