PERFECT WORLD

Lyrics by Sting. Music by Sting & David Hartley
©2000 Wonderland Music Company, Inc.

The are despots and dictators
Political manipulators
There are blue bloods with the intellects of fleas
There are kings and petty tyrants
Who are so lacking in refinements
They'd be better suited swinging from the trees

He was born and raised to rule
No one has ever been this cool
In a thousand years of aristocracy
An enigma and a mystery
In Meso American History
The quintessence of perfection that is he

He's the sovereign lord of the nation
He's the hippest dude in creation
He's a hep cat in the emperor's new clothes
Years of such selective breeding
Generations have been leading
To this miracle of life that we all know

What's his name?
Kuzco, Kuzco, Kuzco...(Ad libs)

He's the sovereign lord of the nation
He's the hippest cat in creation
He's the alpha, the omega, a to z
And this perfect world will spin
Around his every little whim
'Cos this perfect world begins and ends with him

What's his name?
Kuzco, Kuzco, Kuzco...(Ad libs)

MY FUNNY FRIEND AND ME

Lyrics by Sting. Music by Sting & David Hartley
© 2000 Wonderland Music Company, Inc.

In the quiet time of evening
When the stars assume their patterns
And the day has made his journey
And we wonder just what happened
To the life we knew
Before the world changed
When not a thing I held was true
But you were kind to me
And you reminded me

That the world is not my playground
There are other things that matter
What is simple needs protecting
My illusions all would shatter
But you stayed in my corner
When the only world I knew was upside down
And now the world and me
Know you carried me

You see the patterns in the big sky
Those constellations look like you and I
Just like the patterns in the big sky
We could be lost we could refuse to try
But you made it through
In the dark night
Who would those lucky guys turn out to be?
But that unusual blend
Of my funny friend and me

I'm not as clever as I thought I was
I'm not the boy I used to be because
You showed me something different
You showed me something pure
I always seemed so certain
But I was really never sure
But you stayed
And you called my name
When others would have walked out on
a lousy game
And look who made it through
But your funny friend and you

You see the patterns in the big sky
Those constellations look like you and I
That tiny planet and the bigger buy
I don't know whether I should laugh or cry

Just like the patterns in the big sky
We'll be together 'til the end this time
Don't know the answer or the reason why
We'll stick together 'til that day we die

If I had to do this all a second time
I won't complain or make a fuss
Who would the angels send?
But that unlikely blend
Of these two funny friends
That's us

SNUFF OUT THE LIGHT (Yzma's Song)

Lyrics by Sting. Music by Sting & David Hartley
©2000 Wonderland Music Company, Inc.

When a woman acquires a certain age
And the men who adored you no longer swoon
It pays to avoid the sunlit days
And live by the light of the kindly moon
But the moon grows old
Just like us all
And her beautiful years are done
So now she prays through endless days
To take her revenge on the sun

When I was a girl at my daddy's side
Papa, the royal mortician
Revealed to me in secret signs
The mark of a magician

And Daddy was no dummy
Did outrageous things with a mummy
And often the stiffs that he would shrive
Would look better dead than they did alive

I studied well I learnt the trade
I thought my looks would never fade
If I could find that recipe
To give eternal youth to me

It was always my ambition
To use Papa's tuition
And gain some small remission
From the vagaries of time

Every little ray of sunshine robs me
of my youth
Who to blame?
Who the one?
Who to curse?
You know the only on to blame
Would be my enemy the Sun

Snuff out the light
Claim your right
To a world of darkness
Snuff out the light
Neophytes
Of a world of darkness

Supai baby turn me on
Every wrinkle soon be gone
I could squeeze myself with glee
The promises you made to me

I've really stopped at nothing
Murder, treachery, and lying
Whatever it takes to keep my looks
You really can't blame a girl for trying

Snuff out the light
Claim your right
To a world of darkness
Snuff out the light
Neophytes
Of a world of darkness

Snuff out the light
Claim your right
To a world of darkness

Snuff out the light
Here tonight

Apparitions of eternal darkness
Spiraling in circles through the night
Creatures of beguiling blackness
No more squinting in the light

Bats and owls and coiled sea dragons
Crocodile and carrion beasts
Swirling in the growing darkness
Join us in the coming feast

Spectre wraith and apparition
Spirit demon phantom shade
Salamander serpents dog-faced devils
Dance and watch the dying sunlight fade

WALK THE LLAMA LLAMA

Lyrics by Sting. Music by Sting & David Hartley
©2000 Wonderland Music Company, Inc.

Walk the llama llama
Walk the llama llama
Take in the panorama
Walk the llama llama - llama llama
Don't have to be a drama
Walk the llama llama - llama llama
No one could be calmer
Walk the llama llama
Walk the llama llama
Double L.A.M.A.

Fluff up your fur
Stick out your chest
Walk the llama llama
Now you're looking your best
Keep out the wind
Keep out the snow
Wool by llama from head to toe

Walk the llama llama - llama llama
Take in the panorama
Walk the llama llama
Walk the llama llama
Double L.A.M.A.

Cool in the summer
Warm in the cold
A perfect fashion statement
For the young and the old
A cloak for the priest
A hat for the farmer
You could be looking
At the emperor's pajamas

That's why the llama walks so proud
That's why the llama holds his head
up in the crowd
All of us applause his generosity
He's more than just a passing curiosity
He covers up our pride
And all those things we have to hide
In any civilized society

Walk the llama llama

PERFECT WORLD (Reprise)

Lyrics by Sting. Music by Sting & David Hartley
©2000 Wonderland Music Company, Inc.

You'd be the coolest dude in the nation
Or the hippest cat in creation
But if you ain't got friends then nothing's
worth the fuss
A perfect world will come to be
When everybody here can see
That a perfect world begins and ends
A perfect world begins and ends
A perfect world begins and ends with us.

What's his name?
Kuzco, Kuzco, Kuzco...(Ad lib)

ONE DAY SHE'LL LOVE ME

Lyrics by Sting. Music by Sting & David Hartley
©2000 Wonderland Music Company, Inc.

I'd never imagined before
That the world could be turned on it's head
I'd never have thought
To be here in this place
I'd never have dreamt that in love
I'd be lost and so easily led
I guess I was caught
By the hint of a smile on her face

I thought I was happy before
When my life was as easy as pie
But that was the past
Of an ignorant youth
I'm falling in love with the girl
But I'm forced to be living a lie
And she'd never love me
If she knew the truth

Is it asking too much
If I pray for a miracle, miracle
That one day she'll love me
One day she'll say I care

Although he's changing day by day
He finds these tender words of love
Impossible to say
He walks in the room
And I"m never quite sure
If he's trying to be somebody else
I'm liking him better that he's
Not his arrogant self
Perhaps I"m expecting too much
Of a miracle, miracle
One day he'll love me
One day he'll say I love you
And I will love him until I die

Distant Star
Cast your light
On my life

And one by one
I didn't anticipate feeling
the power of love
In this way
And day by day
We've never been closer
than this
And I find myself daring
to pray

We'll find these tender ways of love
Impossible to disobey

One day she'll love me

One day he'll say I love you

And I will love her

Until the moment
Our hearts stop beating
And we are light
