Original UK Cast of Little Shop of Horrors

"Skid Row"

[FEMALE WORKER]
Alarm goes off at seven
And you start uptown
You put in your eight hours
For the powers that have always been
'Til it's five pm...

[BUM 1]
Then you go—

[CHIFFON, CRYSTAL & RONETTE]
Downtown, where the folks are broke
You go downtown, where your life's a joke
You go downtown, where you buy a token
You go home to Skid Row

[MALE WORKER]
Home to Skid Row

[BUM 2]
Yes, you go—

[CHIFFON, CRYSTAL & RONETTE]
Downtown

[FEMALE WORKER]
Where the cabs don't stop

[CHIFFON, CRYSTAL & RONETTE]
Downtown

[MALE WORKER]
Where the food is slop

[CHIFFON, CRYSTAL & RONETTE & MALE WORKER]
Downtown
Where the hopheads flop in the snow
Down on Skid Row

[CHIFFON, CRYSTAL & RONETTE]
Uptown, you cater to a million j*rks
Uptown, you're messengers and mailroom clerks
Eating all your lunches at the hot dog carts
The bosses take your money and they break your hearts
And uptown you cater to a million whores
You disinfect terrazzo on their bathroom floors
[?] stipulations [?]
And 5'o clock is even worse!

[BUM 3, sung]
That's when you go...

[AUDREY]
Downtown, where the guys are drips

[CHIFFON, CRYSTAL & RONETTE & AUDREY]
Downtown

[AUDREY]
Where they rip your slips

[CHIFFON, CRYSTAL & RONETTE & AUDREY]
Downtown

[AUDREY]
Where relationship are no-go

[CHIFFON, CRYSTAL & RONETTE & AUDREY & COMPANY]
Down on Skid Row
Down on Skid Row
Down on Skid Row
Down on Skid Row
Down on Skid Row

[SEYMOUR]
Poor!
All my life, I've always been poor
I keep asking God what I'm for
And he tells me, "Gee, I'm not sure. Sweep that floor, kid!"
Oh!
I started life as an orphan
A child of the street
Here on Skid Row he took me in, gave me shelter
A bed, crust of bread, and a job
Treats me like dirt, calls me a slob
Which I am

[SEYMOUR]
So I live

[CHIFFON, CRYSTAL & RONETTE]
Downtown

[SEYMOUR]
That's your home address, you live

[CHIFFON, CRYSTAL & RONETTE]
Downtown

[SEYMOUR]
When your life's a mess, you live

[CHIFFON, CRYSTAL & RONETTE]
Downtown

[SEYMOUR]
Where depression's just status quo

[COMPANY]
Down on Skid Row

[SEYMOUR]
Someone show me a way to get outta here
'Cause I constantly pray I'll get outta here
Please, won't somebody say I'll get outta here?
Someone gimme my shot or I'll rot here

[COMPANY]
Downtown, there's no rules for us
Downtown, 'cause it's dangerous
Downtown, where the rainbow's just a no-show
When you go

[SEYMOUR]
Show me how and I will, I'll get outta here
I'll start climbing uphill and get outta here
Someone tell me I still could get outta here
Someone tell Lady Luck that I'm stuck here

[COMPANY]
Downtown, where the sun don't shine
Downtown, 'past the bottom line
Downtown, go ask any wino, he'll know

[SEYMOUR & AUDREY]
Gee, it sure would be swell to get outta here
Bid the gutter farewell and get outta here
I'd move Heaven and Hell to get outta Skid
I don't know what to get outta Skid
But a Hell of a lot to get outta Skid
People tell me there's not a way outta Skid
But believe me I gotta get outta Skid Row!

[COMPANY]
Downtown!
Downtown!
Downtown!
