Perpetual anticipation is good for the soul
But it's bad for the heart
It's very good for practicing self-control
It's very good for morals but bad for morale

It's very bad, it can lead to going quite mad
It's very good for reserve
And learning to do what one should
It's very good

Perpetual anticipation's a delicate art
Playing a role, aching to start
Keeping control while falling apart
Perpetual anticipation is good for the soul
But it's bad for the heart

Perpetual anticipation is good for the soul
But it's bad for the heart
It's very good for practicing self-control
It's very good for morals but bad for morale

It's too unnerving, it's very good though
To have things to contemplate
Perpetual anticipation's a delicate art
Aching to start

Keeping control while falling apart
Perpetual anticipation is good for the soul
But it's bad for the heart

Perpetual anticipation is good for the soul
But it's bad for the heart
It's very good, though, to learn to wait
Perpetual anticipation's a delicate art
Keeping control while falling apart
Perpetual anticipation is bad for the heart

Songwriters
Stephen Sondheim
