And it came to pass, all that seemed wrong
Was now right and those who deserved to
Were certain to live a long and happy life
Ever after, ever after

Journey over, all is mended
And it's not just for today
But tomorrow and extended
Ever after, ever after

All the curses have been ended
The reverses wiped away
All is tenderness and laughter
For forever after

Happy now and happy hence
And happy ever after

There were dangers
We were frightened
And confusions
But we hid it

And the paths would often swerve
We did not
There were constant
It's amazing

Disillusions
That we did it
But they never lost they're nerve
Not a lot
And we reached the right conclusions
And we got what we deserved

Not a sigh and not a sorrow
Tenderness and laughter
Joy today and bliss tomorrow
And forever after

I was greedy
I was vain
I was haughty
I was smug, we were happy

It was fun
But we were blind
Then we went into the woods
To get our wish and now we're really blind

I was perfect
I had everything but beauty
I had power
And a daughter like a flower in a tower

Then I went into the woods
To get my wish
And now I'm ordinary
We're unworthy
Lost my power and my flower

We're unhappy now, unhappy hence
As well as ever after
Had we used our common sense

Been worthy of our discontents
We'd be happy

To be happy and forever
You must see your wish come true
Don't be careful, don't be clever
When you see your wish, pursue

It's a dangerous endeavor
But the only thing to do
Though it's fearful
Though it's deep, though it's dark

And though you may lose your path
Though you may encounter wolves
You mustn't stop, you mustn't swerve
You mustn't ponder, you have to act

When you know your wish
If you want your wish
You can have your wish
But you can't just wish
No, to get your wish

Into the woods where nothing's clear
Where witches, ghosts and wolves appear
Into the woods and through the fear
You have to take the journey

Into the woods and down the dell
In vain, perhaps, but who can tell?
Into the woods to lift the spell
Into the woods to lose the longing

Into the woods to have the child
To wed the Prince, to get the money
To save the house, to kill the Wolf
To find the father, to conquer the kingdom

To have, to wed, to get, to save
To kill, to keep, to go to the festival
Into the woods, into the woods
Into the woods, then out of the woods

And happy ever after
