Maybe

Music by Charles Strouse
Lyrics by Martin Charnin

[ANNIE]
Maybe far away
Or maybe real nearby
He may be pouring her coffee
She may be straighting this tie!
Maybe in a house
All hidden by a hill
She’s sitting playing piano,
He’s sitting paying a bill!

Betcha they’re young
Betcha they’re smart
Bet they collect things
Like ashtrays, and art!
Betcha they’re good —
(Why shouldn’t they be?)
Their one mistake
Was giving up me!

So maybe now it’s time,
And maybe when I wake
They’ll be there calling me “Baby”…
Maybe.

Betcha he reads
Betcha she sews
Maybe she’s made me
A closet of clothes!
Maybe they’re strict
As straight as a line…
Don’t really care
As long as they’re mine!

So maybe now this prayer’s
The last one of it’s kind…
Won’t you please come get your “Baby”

[ANNIE AND ORPHANS]
Maybe
