Footloose

This song is by Unknown Artist and appears on the album Footloose - Original Broadway Cast Recording (2009) by various artists.

Ren
Been working so hard
I'm punching my card
Eight hours for what?
Oh, tell me what I got

Chuck, Lyle and Travis
Been working so hard
I'm punching my card
Eight hours for what?
(For what, for what, for what, for what, for what?)

Wendy Jo
Been working too damn hard
I'm punching that same card
Eight hours busting my butt
Oh tell me what I got

All
I got this feeling
That time's just holding me down

Ren and Urleen
I hate this feeling time is holding me down

All
I'll hit the ceiling
Or else I'll tear up this town

Tonight I gotta cut loose, footloose
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Please, Louise
Pull me offa my knees
Jack, get back
C'mon before we crack
Lose your blues
Everybody cut footloose

(Spoken dialogue)

Rusty, Wendy Jo and Urleen
You're playing so cool
Obeying every rule
Dig way down in your heart
You're burning, yearning for some

All
Somebody to tell you
That life ain't passing you by

Rusty, Wendy Jo and Urleen
Life ain't passing me by

All
I'm trying to tell you
It will if you don't even try
(You can fly, you can fly)

Ren
If you'd only cut it loose

All
Cut footloose (whoa)
Cut footloose (whoa)
Cut footloose

(Spoken dialogue)

All
First we've got to turn you around
Second then put your feet on the ground
Third now take a hold of your soul
Ah

Life keeps holding me down

Everybody cut everybody cut
Everybody cut everybody cut
Everybody cut everybody cut

Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah

(Scene changes to Bomont)

Ah ah-ah ah-ah ah-ah

Choir
On any Sunday here we'll be
Raising our voices in harmony
One day once our trials have ceased
We will be released

Shaw
On any Sunday, Lord I pray
Tell me exactly the words to say
Give me strength and maybe then
I can reach my fellow men
So we all may rise again
Thank you Lord, Amen

(To Ren and Ethel)
Welcome to Bomont

Ren
We've only been here two days and already
Chicago seems a million miles away
But we were barely hanging on there
'Specially with my father gone there's
Not too many places we could stay

But maybe Mom could find a job that's steady
And maybe I could stand it for a year
And maybe things won't be so bad
And maybe I won't miss my dad
And maybe we could start a new life here

Parishioners
Ah-ah-ah-ah, start a new life here

Ren and Ethel
Have I done the right thing?
Picking up my life
Packing up the past
That's always fright'ning
Have I done the right thing?

Parishioners
The right thing
The right thing
We strive to do what's right
The right thing
The right thing
Sin is a matter of black and white

(Spoken dialogue)

Kids
There's rumors going 'round about the new kid
And everybody's talking 'til they're blue
'Cause you know how a stranger is
If he's not dumb he's dangerous
But either way at least it's something new

Shaw
Now I invite you to join my wife Vi and our daughter Ariel
in this morning's convocation

Shaw, Vi and Ariel
God is love
Follow him and never roam
He has made the stars above
Just to light your way back home

Shaw
Everybody!

Asking nought but Lord, at least
We pray that one day once our trials have ceased
We will be released
