One Day More (To Aberdeen)

One Day More

VALJEAN
One day more
Another day, another destiny
This never-ending boat to Aberdeen
The men with which a share this bunk
Will surely turn up blazing drunk
One day more

MARIUS
I did not get a room today
Could I get one once we’ve departed

VALJEAN
One day more

MARIUS & COSETTE
Tomorrow we won’t stay awake
Because we’re stuck with these recliners

EPONINE
One more day until I’m home

MARIUS & COSETTE
Will we ever sleep again

EPONINE
Too much fog to fly from Sumburgh

MARIUS & COSETTE
And there were no 2-berth rooms

EPONINE
What a flight I might have known

MARIUS & COSETTE
So we’ll just have to make do

EPONINE
But the plane just couldn’t leave

ENJOLRAS
One more day before the storm

MARIUS
Will the boat get in on time

ENJOLRAS
It’s a force 9 south-easterly

MARIUS
Will we have to leave at 3

ENJOLRAS
When the weather starts to form

MARIUS
But I have onward travel plans

ENJOLRAS
Will we get stuck in Orkney

ALL
The time is now, the boat is here

VALJEAN
One day more!

JAVERT
One more day until the mainland
Then we carry on by car
It’s a family excursion
But I’ll be drinking at the bar

VALJEAN
One day more

M. & MME. THENARDIER
Watch ‘em run amuck
Catch ‘em as they fall
Children roam the Northlink
like a free for all
Games in the arcade
No restraints as such
Most of them have parents
But they don’t do much

STUDENTS (2 Groups)
1: One day till our Christmas shopping
2: Union Square is beckoning
1: We can get a Burger King
2: Or maybe get KFC
1: We should take back some Krispie Kremes
2: If we’re not feeling too sick

ALL
Do you hear the people spew

MARIUS
My place is here, I vomit too

VALJEAN
One day more!

MARIUS & COSETTE
I did not get a room today

EPONINE
One more day until I’m home

MARIUS & COSETTE
Could I get one once we’ve departed

JAVERT (overlapping)
I will join the people drinking
I’ll down Tennant’s by the pint
I will overstay my welcome
And I’ll try to start a fight

VALJEAN
One day more

MARIUS & COSETTE
Tomorrow we won’t stay awake

EPONINE
What a flight I might have known

MARIUS & COSETTE
Because we are stuck with recliners

JAVERT (overlapping)
One more day until the mainland
Then we carry on by car
It’s a family excursion

THE NARDIERS (overlapping)
Watch ‘em run amuck
Catch ‘em as they fall
Children roam the Northlink
like a free for all

VALJEAN
Tomorrow we’ll be far away
Tomorrow is the judgement day

ALL
Tomorrow we’ll discover
What the Scottish Mainland has in store
One more dawn
One more day
One day more
