From Little Shop of Horrors
Music by Alan Menkin
Lyrics by Howard Ashman


Lift up your head
Wash off your mascara
Here, take my Kleenex
Wipe that lipstick away
Show me your face
Clean as the morning
I know things were bad
But now they're okay

Suddenly Seymour
Is standing beside you
You don't need no makeup
Don't have to pretend
Suddenly Seymour
Is here to provide you
Sweet understanding
Seymour's your friend

Nobody ever
Treated me kindly
Daddy left early
Mama was poor
I'd meet a man and
I'd follow him blindly
He'd snap his fingers
Me, I'd say "sure"

Suddenly Seymour
Is standin' beside me
He don't give me orders
He don't condescend
Suddenly Seymour
Is here to provide me
Sweet understanding
Seymour's my friend

Tell me this feeling lasts till forever
Tell me the bad times are clean washed away

Please understand that it's still
Strange and frightnin'
For losers like I've been
It's so hard to say

Suddenly Seymour

Suddenly Seymour
He purified me
He purified you
Suddenly Seymour showed me I can
Suddenly Seymour showed you you can

Learn how to be more
The girl that's inside me (you)
With sweet understanding
Seymour's your man
