MR. PANCH (spoken)
Miss Ostrovsky. Chimerical

OLIVE (spoken)
May I have a definition?

MR. PANCH (spoken, voice fading out)
It means unreal, magical, visionary, wildly fanciful, highly unrealistic

OLIVES MOM
Ooooooooh
Ooooooooh

OLIVE
If I go to Washington
Will I be on my own?
Because if I go to Washington

OLIVES MOM
Aaaaaaaah

OLIVE
Who will be my chaperone?

OLIVES MOM
We always knew you were a winner
We saw it when you smiled
Start from the beginning
When you were a beginner
You were the perfect child
We always knew
We always knew
You were a champion
You sadness filled my room
Dear if you should feel my gloom
Blame it on me
Blame it on your Daddalee and Mammalee
Cause depression runs in our family

I love you
I love you
I love everything about you dear
And I swear its true
I love you

OLIVES DAD
I love you

OLIVE
And my dad says

OLIVES DAD, OLIVES MOM
I love you
I love everything about you [DAD: baby, MOM: babe]
And maybe its true
I love you

OLIVE
I wrote you a letter
How I found the spelling bee such fun
Mama, Mama, Mama
But you didnt react
And you never asked me
If Id join you in the Bombay sun
Mama, Mama, Mama
I had quietly packed
When are you returning?
I know we agreed
Tell me what youre learning
Ma, I have, Oh God, this need
I think Dad is angry, Ma
And I do not know what to do
Mama, Mama, Mama
Shanti Shanti and all
I think he takes out on me
What he wants to take out on you
Mama, Mama, Mama
How I wish you were home
How I wish you were home
How I wish you were
Wish you were home

OLIVES MOM, OLIVES DAD
We always knew you were a winner

OLIVE
How I wish you were home

OLIVES MOM
A bathing beauty, you

OLIVE (overlapping Olives Mom)
How I wish you were
How I wish you were home

OLIVES DAD
God, we love the way you grew
Since you were born

OLIVE (overlapping Olives Dad)
How I wish you were
How I wish you were home

OLIVES MOM
Olive, we couldnt be prouder

OLIVE
Mama, Mama, Mama
How I wish you were home

OLIVES MOM, OLIVES DAD (overlapping Olive)
Please let me say it
One time louder

OLIVES MOM, OLIVES DAD

I love everything about you [DAD: baby, MOM: dear]

OLIVES MOM

OLIVE (spoken)
Chimerical. C-h-i-m-e-r-i-c-a-l. Highly unrealistic, wildly fanciful.

MR. PANCH (spoken)
That is correct.

OLIVE, OLIVES MOM, OLIVES DAD
I love you
