    I've seen them twice at the theatre and every time I hear them singing together I get so emotional! They're just perfect as Jenna and Dr. Pomatter!!!

    It's a bad idea, me and you
    I know, I totally agree
    It's a bad idea, me and you
    I've never known anything so true
    It's a terrible idea, me and you
    You have a wife
    You have a husband
    You're my doctor
    You've got a baby coming
    It's a bad idea, me and you
    Let's just keep kissing 'til we come to
    Heart, stop racing
    Let's face it, making mistakes like this will make worse what was already pretty bad
    Mind, stop running
    It's time we just let this thing go
    It was a pretty good bad idea, wasn't it though?
    It's a bad idea, me and you
    It's a bad idea, me and you
    Hold me close while I think this through
    Yeah, it's a very poor idea, me and you
    Heart, stop racing
    Let's face it, making mistakes like this will make worse what was already pretty bad
    Mind, stop running
    It's time we just let this thing go
    It was a pretty good bad idea, wasn't it though?
    I know it's right for me
    It's the only thing I've ever done
    What if I never see myself ever be anything more
    Than what I've already become?
    I need a bad idea
    I need a bad idea
    I need a bad idea
    I need a bad idea
    Just one
    Heart, keep racing
    Let's make mistakes
    Let us say "so what?" and make worse what was already pretty bad
    This secret is safe
    No reason to throw it away when there's love to be had
    Hold me tight as I tell myself that you might make sense
    And make good what has been just so bad
    Let's see this through
    It's a pretty good bad idea
    Me and you

    • Hanna B
      Hanna B 5 months ago +3

      Yes please! I just adore their voices and loved how they sounded, more than the Broadway recording to be honest🙈 even though that's a pretty unpopular opinion 😅 but maybe that's just because I knew this version first and saw it live with the original Westend cast 🤷🏼‍♀️ but yes please, I want a cast recording SO BAD! especially 'what baking can do' by katharine. I LOVED that song, when she sang it in the show!

    So this show was AMAZING, I saw it with them and was absolutely astounded, truly brilliant. Sadly the show isn't getting enough people and has had to close the balconies and move everyone to the stalls. If I could I would buy every single ticket! Anyone who can should come see these brilliant people!
