KEVIN

We were so tiny
Happy and shiny
Playing tag and getting chased
Singing and clapping
Laughing and napping
Baking cookies, eating paste

Then we got bigger
That was the trigger
Like the Huns invading Rome
Welcome to my school
This ain't no high school
This is the Thunderdome

Hold your breath and count the days
We’re graduating soon
College will be paradise
If I'm not dead by June

But I know, I know
Life can be beautiful
I pray, I pray
For a better way
If we changed back then
We could change again
We can be beautiful
Just not today

VERONICA

Things will get better
As soon as my letter
Comes from Harvard, Duke, or Brown
Wake from this coma
Take my diploma
Then I can blow this town

Dream of ivy-covered walls
And smoky French cafes
Fight the urge to strike a match
And set this dump ablaze

ARCHIE

But I know, I know
I know life can be beautiful
I pray, I pray
I pray for a better way

JOSIE

We were kind before
We can be kind once more
We can be beautiful
Just not today

BETTY

And I know, I know
Life can be beautiful
I pray, I pray
For a better way
We were kind before
We can be kind once more
We can be beautiful

JUGHEAD

Just not today

ALL

Why do they hate me?

JOSIE

Why don't I fight back?

REGGIE

Why do I act like such a creep?

ARCHIE

Why won’t she date me?

BOYS

Why did I hit him?

ALL

Why do I cry myself to sleep?

Somebody hug me
Somebody fix me
Somebody save me
Send me a sign, God
Give me some hope here
Something to live for

CHERYL, VERONICA, AND BETTY

Ah, Heather, Heather, and Heather
I love Heather, Heather, and Heather

CHERYL

And you know, you know, you know
This could be beautiful
Mascara, maybe some lip gloss
And we're on our way
Get this girl some blush
And Heather, I need your brush
Let's make me beautiful

VERONICA

Let's make her beautiful

BETTY

Let's make her beautiful

CHERYL

Beautiful

CHERYL, VERONICA, AND BETTY

Okay? Okay!

REGGIE

Out of my way, geek

FANGS

I don't want trouble

REGGIE

You're gonna die at 3 p.m

CHERYL

Don't you dare touch me
Get away, pervert

SWEET PEA

What did I ever do to them?

ALL

Who could survive this?
I can’t escape this
I think I’m dying

KEVIN

And you know, you know
You know life can be beautiful

VERONICA AND BETTY

You hope, you dream
You pray and you get your way

CHERYL

Ask me how it feels
Looking like hell on wheels
My God, it's beautiful

ALL

Beautiful

KEVIN

I might be beautiful

CHERYL

And when you’re beautiful

KEVIN

It's a beautiful fricking day
