Finale Lyrics

ALL SEVEN HOMELESS
Christmas bells are ringing
Christmas bells are ringing
Christmas bells are ringing
How time flies
When compassion dies
No stockings
No candy canes
No gingerbread
No safety net
No loose change
No change no
ONE HOMELESS MAN
"Santy Claus is coming"
ALL
Santy Claus ain't coming
No room at the Holiday Inn - Again
Well, maybe next year -- or -- when
MARK
December 24th, Ten P.M. Eastern Standard Time
I can't believe a year went by so fast
Time to see - What we have - Time to see
Turn the projector on
First shot Roger
With the Fender guitar he just got out of hock
When he sold the car
That took him away and back
ROGER
I found my song
MARK
He found his song
If he could just find Mimi
ROGER
I tried - You know I tried
MARK
Fade in on Mark
Who's still in the dark
ROGER
But he's got great footage
MARK
Which he's cut together
ROGER
To screen tonight
MARK
In honor of Benny's wife
ROGER
Muffy
MARK
Alison
Pulling Benny out of the East Village location
ROGER
Then again.
Maybe we won't screen it tonight
MARK
I wonder how he found out about Mimi?
ROGER
Maybe a little bird told her.
COLLINS
Or an angel
I had a little hunch that you could use a little flow
ROGER
Tutoring again?
COLLINS
Negative
MARK
Back at N.Y.U.?
COLLINS
No, no, no
I rewired the ATM at the Food Emporium
To provide an honorarium to anyone with the code
ROGER & MARK
The code -
Well. . .?
COLLINS
A-N-G-E-L
Yet Robin Hooding isn't the solution
The powers that be must be undermined
Where they dwell in a small, exclusive gourmet institution
Where we overcharge the wealthy clientele
ALL THREE
Let's open up a restaurant in Santa Fe
With a private corner banquette in the back
COLLINS
We'll make it yet, we'll somehow get to Santa Fe
ROGER
But you'd miss New York before you could unpack
ALL
Ohh--
MAUREEN
Mark!
Roger!
Anyone - Help!
MARK
Maureen?
MAUREEN
It's Mimi - I can't get her up the stairs
ROGER
No!
MAUREEN
She was huddled in the park in the dark
And she was freezing
And begged to come here
ROGER
Over here
Oh, God -
MIMI
"Got a light - I know you - You're shivering. . ."
JOANNE
She's been living on the street
ROGER
We need some heat
MIMI
I'm shivering
MARK
We can buy some wood and something to eat
COLLINS
I'm afraid she needs more than heat
MIMI
I heard that
MAUREED
Collins will call for a doctor honey
MIMI
Don't waste your money on Mimi, me, me
COLLINS
Hello - 911?
I'm on hold
MIMI
Cold. . .Cold. . .Would you light my candle
ROGER
Yes - we'll oh God - Find a candle
MIMI
I should tell you
I should tell you
ROGER
I should tell you
I should tell you
MIMI
I should tell you
Benny wasn't any--
ROGER
Shhh - I know
I should tell you why I left
It wasn't cause I didn't --
MIMI
I know
I should tell you
ROGER
I should tell you
MIMI
I should tell you
I love you--
ROGER
Who do you think you are?
Leaving me alone with my guitar
Hold on there's something you should hear
It isn't much but it took all year
