Mary, I know what I'm gonna do tomorrow
And the next day and next year and the year after that.
I'm shaking the dust of this crummy little town off my feet,
And I'm gonna see the world!
Italy, greece, the parthenon, the coliseum.
Then I'm coming back here and go to college to see what they know.
And then I'm gonna build things.
I'm gonna build airfields.
I'm gonna build skyscrapers 100 stories high.
I'm gonna build bridges a mile long.
What, are you gonna throw a rock?
(glass shattering)
Hey, that's pretty good.
What did you wish, mary?
(birds chirping)
♪ buffalo gals can't you come out tonight?
Both: ♪ can't you come out tonight?
♪ can't you come out tonight?
♪ buffalo gals, can't you come out tonight
(both singing off-key) ♪ and
♪ dance by the light of the moon? ♪
♪ what did you wish when you threw that rock? ♪
Oh, no. Come on, tell me.
If I told you, it might not come true.
What is it you want, mary?
What do you want? You--you want the moon?
Just say the word, and I'll throw a lasso around it and pull it down.
Hey, that's a pretty good idea.
I'll give you the moon, mary.
I'll take it.
Then what?
Well, then you could swallow it,
And it would all dissolve, see?
And the moonbeams would shoot out of your fingers and your toes
And the ends of your hair.
Am I talking too much?
Why don't you kiss her instead of talking her to death?
How's that?
Why don't you kiss her instead of talking her to death?
You want me to kiss her, huh?
Oh, youth is wasted on the wrong people.
Hey. Hey, hold on, hey, mister.
