The Lyrics

- There's No Cure like Travel

[MARY MAGDALA]
My dear, you're sailing off without me.
Yet you don't seem to give a damn.

[JESUS]
I know it's fearful of me not to be
More tearful,
But thank heaven I am.

[MARY]
You mean to say you're glad to leave me?
Can I believe that's what you mean?

[JESUS]
Why, don't be funny, I'm just wild about you, honey,
But I'm oh, so glad, so glad,
It's driving me mad to say goodbye
To the chance that I might die
On a crucifix in Bethany

[APOSTLES]
And there's no cure like travel
To help you dishevel
The chances of dying today.
When Pilate's whip is cracking
There's nothing like packing
A suitcase and sailing away.
We'll hide out in Vienna,
Granada, Ravenna, Sienna
But watch for Rome!
Have as high time, a low time,
And in no time
You'll be singing "Home, Sweet Home".

- Bon Voyage

[ANNAS]
(spoken)
Final call! All ashore that's goin' ashore!
Final call!

[APOSTLES + PONTIUS PILATE]
Bon voyage,

[APOSTLES' WOMEN + CLAUDIA PROCULA (PILATE'S WIFE)]]
You mean "Bon Voyage".

[ALL]
I hate to say goodbye, sweetheart.

[APOSTLES + PILATE]
By the seashore,

[APOSTLES' WOMEN + CLAUDIA]
You mean "sur la plage".

[ALL]
I'll wait and watch the sea
Till you come back to me,

[APOSTLES + PILATE]
Oh my dearie,

[APOSTLES' WOMEN + CLAUDIA]
You mean "ma chérie",

[APOSTLES + PILATE]
I'm yours for life,

[APOSTLES' WOMEN + CLAUDIA]
You mean "pour la vie",

[APOSTLES + PILATE]
So kiss me, pretty wench,

[ALL]
In English or in French.
Bon voyage - "bon voyage".

[APOSTLES]
And there's no cure like travel
To help you dishevel, etc.

[APOSTLES' WOMEN + CLAUDIA]
Bon voyage,
I mean "bon voyage", etc.
[PILATE]
(spoken)
Okay, if I speak Latin, and the rest of you speak Aramaic, Hebrew and Greek, why are we singing in French?

[CLAUDIA]
(spoken)
No idea, whatsoever, Pontius dear.


[APOSTLES + APOSTLES' WOMEN]
And there's no cure like travel
To help you dishevel
The chances of dying today.
When Pilate's whip is cracking
There's nothing like packing
A suitcase and sailing away.
We'll hide out in Vienna,
Granada, Ravenna, Sienna
But watch out for Rome!
Have as high time, a low time,
And in no time
You'll be singing "Home, Sweet Home".
