Musical number 5

A Tight Ship (and Sunny Seniors reprise)

Mrs Hewitt, Josephine and chorus††††††††††††††††††††††††††

 

During the song, more little luxuries are discovered and confiscated by Mrs Hewitt and her staff:- food, dvds and, importantly, celebrity magazines. Each item is placed on the desk.

 

Mrs Hewitt†††† The chores are always done and thatís because we run a tight ship.

Donít waste our time on the fun and thatís because we run a tight ship.

No pickled onions under bedclothes when you run a tight ship

No watching Naked Gun. At Sunny S we run a tight ship.

 

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Stand tall.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Stand proud.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Don't mope.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Don't slouch.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Be bold.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Be brave.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† And Josephine.

 

Josephine††††††††††† (spoken)

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Yes?

 

Mrs Hewitt ††† Don't slouch.

 

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† We rise before the sun to show the world we run a tight ship.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† No money to be won from gambling when you run a tight ship.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† (Referring to a magazine† the men have been† caught looking at)

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† No gawping at a stunner. That's no way to run a tight ship.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† No chocolates by the ton. At Sunny S we run a tight ship.

 

Mrs Hewitt†††††††† (Repeats the first verse while . . . )

 

Groups 1,2,3†††††† (singing across each other)

Sunny Seniors are us

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Fuelled by ginseng and Pro-Plus

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Itís a long time since we got a bus pass

Sunny Seniors are us
