I know things now lyrics Sondheim Stephen

Mother said, “Straight ahead”
Not to delay or be mislead
I should have headed her advice
But he seemed so nice
And he showed me things
Many beautiful things
That I hadn’t thought to explore
They were off my path
So I never had dared
I had been so careful
I never had cared
And he made me feel excited
Well, excited and scared
When he said, “Come in!”
With that sickening grin
How could I know what was in store?
Once his teeth were bared
Though, I really got scared
Well, excited and scared
But he drew me close
And he swallowed me down
Down a dark slimy path
Where lie secrets that I never want to know
And when everything familiar
Seemed to disappear forever
At the end of the path
Was Granny once again
So we lay in the dark
‘Til you came and set us free
And you brought us to the light
And we’re back at the start
And I know things now
Many valuable things
That I hadn’t known before
Do not put your faith
In a cape and a hood
They will not protect you
The way that they should
And take extra care with strangers
Even flowers have their dangers
And though scary is exciting
Nice is different than good
Now I know: Don’t be scared
Granny is right, Just be prepared
Isn’t it nice to know a lot!
And a little bit not
