The Court Of Miracles
Music by Alan Menken
Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz
Performed by Paul Kandel (Clopin) and Chorus
Clopin and Gypsies
Maybe you've heard of a terrible place
Where the scoundrels of Paris
Collect in a lair
Maybe you've heard of the mythical place
Called the Court of Miracles
Hello, you're there!
Where the lame can walk
And the blind can see
But the dead don't talk
So you won't be around
To reveal what you've found
We have a method for spies and intruders
Rather like hornets protecting their hive
Here in the Court of Miracles
Where it's a miracle if you get out alive!
Justice is swift in the Court of Miracles
I am the lawyers and the judge all in one
We like to get the trial over with quickly
Because it's the sentence that's really fun!
Now that we've seen all the evidence...
Wait! I object!
We find you totally innocent...
Which is the worst crime of all...
So you're going to hang!
