Lyrics Edit

Leading Player
You look frenzied
You look frazzled
Peaked as any alp
Flushed and rushed and...
Razzle-dazzled
Dry your lips
Damp your scalp
Now I can see you're in a rut in
Disarray

And I'm not one to butt it
But in fact, I must say
If you'd take it easy
Trust awhile
Don't look blue
Don't look back
You'll pull through in just awhile
'Cause you're on
The right track

Pippin (Leading Player)
On the right track (Take it easy)
On the right track (Sonny)
On the right track (Take it easy, sonny)
On the right track (Take it easy)

Leading Player
Why look fluried

Pippin
Flustered

Leading Player
Keep those

Pippin
Hopes aloft

Leading Player
Keep cool as custard

Pippin
Trying hard

Leading Player
Stepping soft

Both
There's no trick to staying sensible
Despite each cul-de-sac
'Cause each step's indispensable
When you're on
The right track

Pippin (Leading Player)
On the right track (Take it easy)
On the right track (Sonny)
On the right track (Take it easy, sonny)
On the right track (Take it easy)

Leading Player
Many, when things get dank will
Feel their grip... Go!
We stay tranquil
Spirits high, pulses low

Pippin
But, what I've left behind
Looks trifling
What's ahead
Looks black
Am I doomed to spend my life
A-lingering on

Leading Player
Lingering on

Pippin
Just lingering on

Both
Malingering on...

Pippin
Ah, I'll never find it!
Never, never, never, never!
Shit!

Leading Player
Easy, baby
You're on the right...
Track!
