    (Mary Dee and Shanty's home)

    MARY DEE (alone in bedroom)
    The world you're coming into,
    Is no easy place to enter.
    Every day is haunted
    By the echoes of the past.
    Funny thoughts and wild; wild dreams
    Will find their way into your mind.

    The clouds that hang above us,
    May be full of rain and thunder.
    But in time they slide away
    To find the sun still there.
    Lazy days and wild. wild flowers
    Will bring some joy into your heart.
    And I will always love you,
    I'll welcome you into this world.

    MARY DEE and BOY SOLO
    You-re mine and I will love you.

    SHANTY
    ]Where-s my dinner?
    I've been working hard all day
    And a man can work up quite an appetite that way.

    What's for dinner?
    Something nourishing and hot?
    I could tackle quite a lot of 'you know what'
    And all I've got to say to you is 'Why no dinner?'

    I've got nothing on my plate.
    It's expected of a mate.
    Whyd 'ya have to make me wait?
    Where's my...

    MARY DEE
    This is the way we put out the candle.
    Farewell to childhood.
    Deep in the wild wood a fire goes out,
    And what are we left with
    Now we are grown up?

    SHANTY
    This is the way we pull up the anchor.
    Goodbye to romance.
    Out on the ocean a good ship is lost,
    And what are we left with
    Now we are grown Up?

    MARY DEE
    Time to be thinking of real life feelings.
    I must get on.

    SHANTY
    Time to be buying those little trinkets
    I can't afford.
    Lord knows
    I want to give her the best.
    But where will
    I find the rest of the cash?

    MARY DEE
    It's one mad dash
    To fame and fortune.
    The cymbals clash
    And then you're gone.

    SHANTY
    So what are my chances
    Of getting promotion?
    The way things are going
    It doesn't look good.

    MARY DEE
    What good is complaining,
    It's getting you nowhere.
    And I'm in the middle of your whirlwind
    In the eye of your storm.

    SHANTY
    Let's not argue.

    MARY DEE
    Spare me your excuses.

    SHANTY
    No excuses.

    MARY DEE
    Pardon my anger.

    SHANTY
    Why are you driving me so hard?

    MARY DEE
    I can't believe what I'm hearing.

    SHANTY
    You didn't cook any dinner.

    MARY DEE
    I'm not a slave.
    I work for a living,
    I can command the respect of my peers.
    Where did you go?
    You were out with the boys.

    SHANTY
    So what if I went for a drink?
    You'd think to listen to you
    It was some sort of crime.

    MARY DEE
    I needed someone to talk to
    But all I could find was myself.
    If you were the same man I married,
    You'd know that your woman needs love.

    SHANTY
    And what about me?
    I suppose I don't matter.
    I'm not even sure
    If you ever loved me.

    MARY DEE
    Right!
    That's it!
    I'm off!

    Oh, and by the way...you're about to become a father.

    (She rushes our into the street)

    CHORUS
    Stop.
    Wait.
    Hold on.
    Hold on to life.

    Stay.

    (Hospital)

    NURSE
    Do you know who you are
    As you lie there sleeping?
    Take the time to rest your troubled head.
    I will watch over you till the moment you awake.

    Can you hear what I say
    As you lie there sleeping?
    When misfortunes crowd into your day
    And the dark side of life
    Has become too much to bear,
    I will stay by your side.
    Though we don't yet know if there's something wrong
    You were brought in from the street
    And a witness said you gave a shout
    As you fell down at his feet.

    We are running tests
    And soon the results will be known.
    But I feel I have to warn you,
    There may be complications.

    But we don't yet know if your child is in danger.
    We shall have to wait and see.
    In the meantime
    There is nothing more for you to do
    But sleep.

    BOYS
    Ghosts of the past left behind.

    MEN'S CHORUS (ghosts)
    You're sleeping
    Amongst us.
    We're in your dream.

    NURSE
    You're dreaming. try to rest, my child.

    MEN'S CHORUS (ghosts)
    You called us,
    We heard you
    And we are here.

    NURSE
    To save your child you must be still.

    MEN'S CHORUS (ghosts)
    We're ready to listen
    To what you ask.

    NURSE
    Go to sleep

    WOMEN'S CHORUS (ghosts)
    You're crossing
    The water,
    The tide is strong.

    MARY DEE
    No!

    WOMEN'S CHORUS (ghosts)
    Your child is drawn to us,
    Into our throng.

    SHANTY
    No!

    FULL CHORUS (ghosts)
    This child is
    Most welcome.
    Soon one of us.

    MARY DEE
    No, I tell you!
    You'll never get through,
    I'll never let you.
    No-one is stealing this child.
    I'm not afraid of Ghosts that the past left behind.

    SHANTY
    Let her recover,
    Then let me love her
    Until we run out of time.
    And in the future
    I will promise to be the man
    She had in mind.

    NURSE
    Be still.
    Be calm.
    Your child is safe.

    MARY DEE
    Do we live in a world
    With an uncertain future
    Where a man is unsure of his fate?
    Will we come to our senses
    Be fair to each other?
    Can we turn it around
    Before it's too late?

    Do I know that we have the answer?
    Yes, I know now We are together.

    So we must bear in mind
    That the pages are turning
    And the sand will run out of the glass.
    In the heat of the battle
    We will drive out the demons
    And we'll carry the day,
    For we must save the child.

    MARY DEE and NURSE
    (Ah)

    MARY DEE and SHANTY
    We have come to our senses,
    We are part of each other
    And we'll carry the day,
    For we must save the child.

    CHORUS
    Do you know that you have the answer?

    MARY DEE and SHANTY
    Yes, we know now.

    CHORUS
    We know now.

    MARY DEE and SHANTY
    We know now.
