Ya Never Know

This song is by Howard Ashman and appears on the musical Little Shop of Horrors (1982) by Alan Menken and on the musical soundtrack Little Shop of Horrors (2003) by Alan Menken.

I can't believe it
It couldn't be happening
Pinch me girls
It couldn't be happening
All of a sudden
Success coming out of the blue.
I put a sign up right in the front window
An advertisement right in the front window
"Stop in and see the amazing new plant, Audrey II"
And the really remarkable thing is
That people, they do.
Seymour, that twerp of a klutz finally did something right
Audrey II drives them nuts
What a blessing this wonder should exist
And should rake in the bucks for me
Hand over fist.

How'd I do?

Dude you was great on the radio, Seymour.
You said it. Sexier than The Wolfman.
You're an overnight sensation, Seymour!
Pooh. Who've believed it?

One day he pushed a broom
Nothing in his news but gloom
And doom
Then he lit a fuse and give him room
Stand aside and watch that
Motha blow
Explosion! Bang! Kerboom!
Don't it go to show ya never know?

Seymour was in a funk
He was number zero
Who 'da thunk he'd become a hero?
Just a punk, he was a forgotten
Then one day-

Crash! Kerplunk!

Don't it go to show ya never know?

Sit down, Seymour. Ronette's gonna sing for ya

All the world used to screw him
Biff-wham-pow! Now they interview him
And they clamor to put his remarks
On the air
All the world used to hate him
Now they're startin' t' appreciate him
All because of that strange little plant
Over there

Observe him! Here's a chap
Everything is landing in his lap

I just cut my hand and in a snap
Something out of Edgar Allen Poe has happened

Seymour, Crystal, Ronette, Chiffon
Zam! Kazap!
Don't it go to show ya never know?

One day you're slinging hash
Feeling so rejected
Lightning flash, you get resurrected
Make a splash- now you rate the big
And with a thundercrash-
Crash kerplunk, bam kerboom
Zang kazunk, zam kazoom
Zowee powee holy cow he
Ordered up a rainbow to go
Wow! Pow! Lookout below!
Don't it go to show ya never know?
