Audrey Hepburn - Just you wait
Tekst: Alan Jay Lerner / Muziek: Frederick Loewe

Just you wait, ’enry ’iggins, just you wait!
You’ll be sorry, but your tears will be to late!
You’ll be broke and I’ll have money
Will I help you? Don’t be funny!
Just you wait, ’enry ’iggins, just you wait!

Just you wait, ’enry ’iggins, till you’re sick
And you scream to fetch a doctor double-quick
I’ll be off a second later and go straight to the theater!
Oh ho ho, ’enry ’iggins, just you wait!

Ooooooh ’enry ’iggins!
Just you wait until we’re swimmin’ in the sea!
Ooooooh ’enry ’iggins!
And you get a cramp a little waves from me!

When you yell, you’re going to drown
I’ll get dressed and go to town!
Oh ho ho, ’enry ’iggins!
Oh ho ho, ’enry ’iggins!
Just you wait!

One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim
Go to St. James so often, I will call it St. Jim!
One evening the King will say: “Oh, Liza, old thing
I want all of England your praises to sing
Next week on the twentieth of May
I proclaim Eliza Doolittle Day!
All the people will celebrate the glory of you
And whatever you wish and want, I gladly will do”
“Thanks a lot, King”, says I, in a manner well-bred
“But all I want is ’enry ’iggins ’ead!”

“Done”, says the King with a stroke
“Guard, run and bring in the bloke!”

Then they’ll march you, ’enry ’iggins to the wall
And the King will tell me: “Liza, sound the call”
As they raise their rifles higher
I’ll shout: “Ready! Aim! Fire!”
Oh ho ho, ’enry ’iggins
Down you’ll go, ’enry ’iggins!
Just you wait!
