    "Your Fault/Last Midnight" Lyrics

    Stephen Sondheim

    [Your Fault]

    Baker: It's because of you there's a giant in our midst, and my wife is dead!

    Jack: But it isn't my fault
    I was given those beans!
    You persuaded me to trade away my cow for beans!
    And without those beans, there'd have been no stalk
    To get up to the giant in the first place!

    Baker: Wait a minute, magic beans for a cow so old
    That you had to tell a lie to sell it, which you told!

    Were they worthless beans? Were they oversold?
    Oh, and tell us who persuaded you to steal that gold!

    LRRH [to Jack]: See, it's your fault

    Jack: No!

    Baker: So it's your fault..

    Jack: No!

    LRRH: Yes, it is!

    Jack: It's not!

    Baker: It's true

    Jack: Wait a minute, though--

    I only stole the gold to get my cow back
    From you!

    LRRH [to Baker]: So it's your fault!

    Jack: Yes!

    Baker: No, it isn't!
    I'd have kept those beans, but our house was cursed
    She made us get a cow to get the curse reversed!

    Witch: It's his father's fault that the curse got placed
    And the place got cursed in the first place!

    LRRH: Oh. Then it's his fault!

    Witch: So

    Cinderella: It was his fault..

    Jack: No

    Baker: Yes, it is, it's his

    Cinderella: I guess..

    Jack: Wait a minute, though--
    I chopped down the beanstalk, right? That's clear
    But without any beanstalk, then what's queer
    Is how did the second giant get down here
    In the first place?
    ..second place..

    Cinderella: Yes!

    LRRH: How?

    Baker: Hmm..

    Jack: Well, who had the other bean?

    Baker: The other bean?

    Cinderella: The other bean?

    Jack [to Baker]: You pocketed the other bean

    Baker: I didn't!
    Yes, I did

    LRRH: So it's your f--!

    Baker: No, it isn't, cause I gave it to my wife!

    LRRH: So it's her f--!

    Baker: NO, IT ISN'T!

    Cinderella: Then whose is it?

    Baker: Wait a minute! [to Cinderella]
    She exchanged that bean to obtain your shoe
    So the one who knows what happened to the bean is you!

    Cinderella: You mean that old bean-- that your wife--? Oh, dear--
    [as they all look at her]
    But I never knew, and so I threw--
    Well, don't look here!

    LRRH: So it's your fault!

    Cinderella: But--

    Jack: See, it's her fault--

    Cinderella: But--

    Jack: And it isn't mine at all!

    Baker [to Cinderella]: But what?

    Cinderella [to Jack]: Well, if you hadn't gone back up again--

    Jack: We were needy--

    Cinderella: You were greedy! Did you need that hen?

    Jack: But I got it for my mother--!

    LRRH: So it's her fault then!

    Cinderella: Yes, and what about the harp in the third place?

    Baker: The harp--yes!

    Jack [referring to LRRH]: She went and dared me to!

    LRRH: I dared you to?

    Jack: You dared me to!
    [to the others] She said that I was scared--

    LRRH: ME?

    Jack: --to. She dared me!

    LRRH: No, I didn't!

    Baker, Cinderella, Jack: So it's your fault!

    LRRH: Wait a minute--!

    Cinderella: If you hadn't dared him to--

    Baker [to Jack] And you had left the harp alone
    We wouldn't be in trouble in the first place!

    LRRH [to Cinderella, over]: Well, if you hadn't thrown away the bean
    In the first place--!
    It was your fault!

    Cinderella [referring to Witch]:
    Well, if she hadn't raised them in the first place--!

    Jack [over, to Witch]: Yes, if you hadn't raised them in the first place--!

    LRRH, Baker [to Witch]:
    Right! It's you who raised them in the first place--!

    Cinderella [simultaneously]: You raised the beans in the first place!

    Jack: It's YOUR fault!

    Cinderella, Jack, LRRH, Baker: You're responsible!
    You're the one to blame!
    It's your fault!

    Witch: Shhhhhhhhhhh!

    Last Midnight

    Witch: It's the last midnight
    It's the last wish
    It's the last midnight
    Soon it will be boom--
    Told a little lie, stole a little gold, broke a little vow
    Did you?
    Had to get your Prince, had to get your cow
    Have to get your wish, doesn't matter how..
    Anyway, it doesn't matter now
    It's the last midnight
    It's the boom--
    Nothing but a vast midnight
    Everybody smashed flat!
    Nothing we can do...
    Not exactly true:
    We can always give her the boy...
    No, of course, what really matters is the blame
    Somebody to blame
    Fine, if that's the thing you enjoy, placing the blame
    If that's the aim, give me the blame
    Just give me the boy
    You're so nice
    You're not good, you're not bad
    You're just nice
    I'm not good, I'm not nice
    I'm just right
    I'm the witch
    You're the world
    I'm the hitch, I'm what no one believes
    I'm the witch
    You're all liars and thieves
    Like his father!
    Like his son will be too!
    Oh, why bother?
    You'll just do what you do!
    It's the last midnight
    So goodbye, all
    Coming at you fast, midnight--
    Soon you'll see the sky fall!
    Here, you want a bean?
    Have another bean
    Beans were made for making you rich!
    Plant them and they soar--
    Here, you want some more?
    Listen to the roar:
    Giants by the score--!
    Oh well, you can blame another witch
    It's the last midnight
    It's the last verse
    Now, before it's past midnight
    I'm leaving you my last curse:
    I'm leaving you alone
    You can tend the garden, it's yours
    Separate and alone
    Everybody down on all fours
    All right, Mother, when?
    Lost the beans again!
    Punish me the way you did then!
    Give me claws and a hunch
    Just away from this bunch
    And the gloom
    And the doom
    And the boom
