Barlow & Bear - Tis The Season Lyrics


[Mothers]
Tis the season!
It’s a season for elegant ladies!
Reputations dictated by the queen!
Must be perfectly perfect
Must meet every expectation
May god save all our souls!

[Lady Whistledown]
Grosvenor Square, 1813
Dearest reader
The time has come to place our bets
For the upcoming social season!
Consider the household of the Baron Featherington
3 misses foisted upon the marriage market
Like sorrowful sows by their tasteless and tactless Mama

[Penelope]
Is she to breathe mama?

[Lady Featherington]
When I was your age I could fit my waist into an orange and a half and so shall you!

Tighter

[Prudence]
Tighter?! Oh, oh.

[Lady Whistledown]
Far better odds might exist
In the household of the Viscountess Bridgerton
A shockingly prolific family
Known for its bounty of perfectly handsome sons
And perfectly beautiful daughters

[Eloise]
Ugh, I’m boiling in this dress already

[Hyacinth]
Are you to complain the entire time, Eloise?

[Eloise]
Well, what else am I good for?

[Hyacinth]
I feel like a princess
Do I look like one?

[Benedict]
Hyacinth, do you wish to know what I think you look like?

[Hyacinth]
Benedict!

[Benedict]
And where’s the lovely Daphne?

[Eloise]
She’s only been getting ready all evening

[Benedict]
Only her whole life
Well, I’ll go fetch for her

[Colin/Hyacinth]
No, I’ll go fetch for her
She likes me better than you anyway

[Benedict]
Ugh, and who says that?

[Colin/Hyacinth]
Well everyone says that

[Eloise]
Ugh, DAPHNE! YOU MUST. MAKE. HASTE!
(Sigh) Should you think she heard me?

[Lady Whistledown]
How very perfect indeed

[Daphne]
This is only the beginning
Of the life that I’ll be living
I’m dreaming of a match for love
Just like Mama and Pa had done
So Father, if you’re looking down from above
I’m marrying for love

[Bridgerton Sisters]
Tis the season, it’s the season for elegant ladies
Must be marvelous down to every seam
Must be perfectly perfect, with impeccable reputations
So may she save us all!

[Mrs. Bridgerton]
Where is he?
Ugh, if your brother is to be obeyed as Lord Bridgerton
He must act like Lord Bridgteron!
Benedict, where is Anthony?

[Benedict]
Huh, I do not know

[Sienna]
Just hold me closer now
Our time is running out

[Anthony]
Sienna, you know it’s half-past nine!

[Sienna]
My lord, just stop the time!
Just put it in your pocket, and lock it away

[Anthony]
You know I cannot stay
Sienna, my duties they await

So I’ll see you Saturday

[Sienna]
Okay

[Bridgerton Sisters]
There’s a reason, there’s a reason for all of this crazy
The only word that matters is the Queen’s!

[Lady Whistledown]
Today is a most important day
And for some, a terrifying one
For today is the day
London’s marriage-minded misses
Are presented to Her Majesty, the Queen

[Bridgerton Sisters]
To the Queen!

[Herald]
Presenting:
Ladies Prudence, Philipa, and Penelope Featherington
All escorted by their mother
The right honorable Lady Featherington

[Featherington Sisters]
(No my foot, ugh)
Your Majesty
We’re as perfect as we seem
Not the cake but with the cream
Think I forgot how to breathe!

[Lady Whistledown]
A glimmer of displeasure
And a young lady’s value plummets to unthinkable depths

[Herald]
Presented by her mother
The right honorable Viscountess Bridgerton
Miss Daphne Bridgerton

[Daphne]
Don’t trip, don’t falter
Just make it to the altar
Don’t break, don’t crumble
Make certain you’re perfectly humble
Show Her Majesty, the Queen
That I’m more than worthy
Don’t you let it show that you’re more than nervous
Finally, I’m living with a purpose
Must be calm and cool, collected at the surface

Must be perfectly perfect

[Choir]
She’s perfectly perfect

[Daphne]
Must be perfectly deserving

[Choir]
She’ll be the diamond of the season

[Daphne]
Don’t trip, don’t falter
Just make it to the altar
Must be perfectly perfect

[Choir]
It’s a season, it’s a season for all of the ladies
It’s a season, ah

[Daphne]
Perfectly perfect
Must be-

[Queen Charlotte]
Flawless, my dear

[Daphne]
Did that really just happen?
