'No Way to Stop it' Lyrics

Baroness
You dear attractive dewy-eyed idealist,Today you have to learn to be a realist.

Max
You may be bent on doing deed of daring due,But up against a shark, what can a herring do?

Baroness
Be wise, compromise.

Max
Compromise, and be wise!

Baroness
Let them think you're on their side, be noncommittal.

Max
I will not bow my head to the men I despise!

Captain
You won't have to bow your head to stoop a little.

Baroness
Why not learn to put your faith and your reliance,On an obvious and simple fact of science?

A crazy planet full of crazy people,Is somersaulting all around the sky.And everytime it turns another somersault,Another day goes by.And there's no way to stop it,No, there's no way to stop it.No, you can't stop it even if you tried.So, I'm not going to worry,No, I'm not going to worry,Everytime I see another day go by.

Max
While somersaulting at a cockeyed angle,We make a cockeyed circle 'round the sun.And when we circle back to where we started from,Another year has run.

Both
And there's no way to stop it,No, there's no way to stop it,If the earth wants to roll around the sun.You're a fool if you worry.You're a fool if you worry,Over anything but little number one.

Max
That's you!

Baroness
That's I!

Max
And I!

Captain Von Trapp
And me!

Max
That all absorbing character.

Baroness
That fastinating creature.

Captain Von Trapp
That super special feature,

All
Me!

Max
So every star on every whirling planet,And every constellation in the sky,Revolves around the center of the universe,That lovely thing called, I.

All
And there's no way to stop it.No, there's no way to stop it,And I know, though I cannot tell you why (sigh).Just as long as I'm living,Just as long as I'm living,There'll be nothing else as wonderful as I.I! I! I! Nothing else as wonderful as I!
