Agony (Reprise)

This song is by Chuck Wagner and Robert Westenberg and appears on the musical soundtrack Into the Woods (1987).

Cinderella's Prince
High in a tower-
Like yours was, but higher-
A beauty asleep.
All round the tower
A thicket of briar
A hundred feet deep.

Agony!
No frustration mor keen,
When the one thing you want
Is a thing that you've not even seen.

Rapunzel's Prince
I found a casket
Entirely of glass-
No, it's unbreakable.
Inside- don't ask it-
A maiden, alas,
Just as unwakable-

Both
What unmistakable agony!
Is the way always barred?

Rapunzel's Prince
She has skin white as snow-

Cinderella's Prince
Did you learn her name?

Rapunzel's Prince
No,
There's a dwarf standing guard.

Both
Agony!
Such that Princes must weep!
Always in thrall most
To anything almost,
Or something asleep.

Cinderella's Prince
If it were not for the thicket-

Rapunzel's Prince
A thicket's no trick.
Is it thick?

Cinderella's Prince
It's the thickest.

Rapunzel's Prince
The quickest
Is pick it
Apart with a stick-

Cinderella's Prince
yes, but even one prick-
It's my thing about blood.

Rapunzel's Prince
Well, it's sick!

Cinderella's Prince
It's no sicker
Than you thing with dwarves.

Rapunzel's Prince
Dwarfs.

Cinderella's Prince
Dwarfs

Rapunzel's Prince
Dwarfs are every upsetting.

Both
Not forgetting
The tasks unacheivable,
Mountains unscalable-
If it's conceivable
But unavailable,
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh-

Agony!

Cinderella's Prince
Misery!

Both
Not to know what you miss.

Cinderella's Prince
While they lie there for years-

Rapunzel's Prince
And you cry on their biers-

Both
What unbearable bliss!
Agony
That can cut like a knife!

Ah, well, back to my wife
