HAIRSPRAY lyrics : "Run And Tell That!"

I can't see
Why people look at me
And only see the color of my face


And then there's those
That try to help, god knows

But have to always put me in my place

but i won't ask you to be color blind

'Cause if you pick the fruit
Then girl, you're sure to find...


The blacker the berry
The sweeter the juice
I could say it ain't so

But darlin', what's the use?

The darker the chocolate

The richer the taste
And that's where it's at...
...now run and tell that!!


ENSEMBLE
Run and tell that!


SEAWEED
Run and tell that!


ENSEMBLE
Run and tell that!


SEAWEED (& ENSEMBLE)
I can't see

Why people disagree
Each time i tell them what i know is true


And if you come
And see the world i'm from
1 bet your heart is gonna feel it too


Yeah. I could lie
But baby. Let's be bold

Vanilla can be nice
But if the truth be told...


The blacker the berry
The sweeter the juice
I could say it ain't so

But darlin', what's the use

The darker the chocolate

The richer the taste
That's where it's at


Now run and tell that!!

ENSEMBLE

Run and tell that!



SEAWEED
Come on girl, This is my sister Li'l Inez!


LI'L INEZ
Oh I know Tracy Turnblad! Good For you girl you got on the show!


TRACY
Well you better be next


Li'L INEZ
You got that right.


SEAWEED
Oh you know she is you better show em' girl!



LI'L INEZ
I'm tired of coverin' up all my pride

SEAWEED & ENSEMBLE

So give me five on the black-hand side

LI'L INEZ
I've got a new way of movin'
And i got my own voice


SEAWEED & ENSEMBLE
So how can i help
But to shout and rejoice


LI'L INEZ
The people 'round here
Can barely pay their rent
They're "try'n to make dollar
Out 'a fifteen cent"

But we got a spirit
Money just cant buy

LI'L INEZ & ENSEMBLE
It's deep as a river
And soars to the sky!!


SEAWEED & ENSEMBLE
I cant see
The reason it cant be
The kinda world where we all get our chance

The time is now

And we can show them how
To turn the music up and let's all dance

'Cause all things are equal
When it comes to love
Well, that ain't quite true
'Cause when push comes to shove...


The blacker the berry
The sweeter the juice
I could say it ain't so

But darlin', what's the use
The darker the chocolate

The richer the taste
That's where it's at

SEAWEED
...Now run and tell that!!

ENSEMBLE

Run and tell that!

SEAWEED
Run and tell that!!
