[EDNA]
Tracy I haven't left this house in years
[TRACY]
Then isn't it time you did
[EDNA]
Oh no Tracy, We'll have your father meet with him
I don't wanna be seen like this
The neighbors haven't seen me since I was a size 10
Don't make me do it Tracy
[TRACY]
Ma, it's changing out there
You'll like it
People who are different, their time is coming

[TRACY]
Hey mama hey mama,
Look around
Everybody's groovin' to a brand new sound
Hey mama hey mama,
Follow me
1 know something's in you
That you wanna set free
So let so, go, go of the past now
Say hello to the love in your heart
Yes, 1 know that the world's spinning fast now
You gotta get yourself a brand new start

[TRACY, DYNAMITES & ENSEMBLE]

Since someone asked me to dance

So let go, so, go of the past now
Say hello to the light in your eyes
Yes, i know that the world's
Spinning fast now
But you gotta run the race
To win the prize

[JUDINE]
Dontcha let nobody
Try to steal your fun
'Cause a little touch of lipstick
Never hurt no one

[KAMILAH]
The future's got a million roads
For you to choose
But you'll walk a little taller
In some high-heeled shoes

[SHAYNA]
And once you find the style
That makes you feel like you
Something fresh
Something new

[DYNAMITES & ENSEMBLE]
Step on out
Hear us shout

[TRACY, DYNAMITES & ENSEMBLE ]
Mama, that's your cue!!!

(Edna emerges from Mr. Pinky's Hefty Hideaway all brand new.)

[EDNA]
Hey Tracy, hey baby,

That ya ever did see

Hey Tracy, hey baby,
Look at us
Where is there a team
That's half as fabulous?!

(Tracy takes her turn in "Mr. Pinky's".)

[EDNA & ENSEMBLE]
I let go, go. Go of the past now
Said hello to this red carpet ride
Yes I know that the world's spinning fast now
Tell lollabrigida to step aside!

[EDNA & ENSEMBLE]
Your mama's welcome in the 60's
