It Only Takes a Moment – Charles Nelson Reilly, Eileen Brennan
What I love about Jerry Herman’s songs is how there’s always a resolution. Most of his songs tell a story with a beginning, a middle and an end. You could take the lyrics of this particular song and develop an entire novel. The lyrics have already dictated what the characters will do, and where they’re headed.
I know, it is hard to explain, but as I include more of Jerry Herman’s songs, I’ll make my point clearer.
