Some Fun Now, is a song in the 1986 film, which is a revised version of the stage musical's Ya Never Know. It is sung by Crystal, Ronnette, and Chiffon to describe Seymour's sudden rise to popularity due to Audrey II.

Versions

The version on the soundtrack album deviates from the final cut of the movie, including an additional "Pop Quiz" verse (repeated) and the orchestral interlude is a different calypso variation of the melody from Ya Never Know. The missing verse is retained in circulating copies of the workprint, and the interlude is extended.

In the movie's songbook, the line "Pop Quiz!" is listed as "What with?" The final draft of the script includes yet another verse: "My my/This guy/Really havin' some fun now."

Earlier draft of the screenplay feature an entirely different version of the song[1] (which replaced the unused song ThunderCrash). Preliminary studio recordings with the film's cast occurred in April 1985, but the version as it exists in the film wasn't written until June, so it's entirely possible that this drastically different variation was also recorded.

Poor Seymour pushed a broom,

Nothing in his news but gloom and doom,

Then, he lit a fuse and, give him room,

He started an explosion,

Holy cow!

That thing went Bang! Kaboom!

And he's havin' some fun now.

Poor Seymour pushed a broom,

Nothing in his news but gloom and doom,

Then, he lit a fuse and, give him room,

He started an explosion,

Holy cow!

That thing went Bang! Kaboom!

And he's havin' some fun now.

Poor Seymour pushed a broom,

Nothing in his news but gloom and doom,

Then, he lit a fuse and, give him room,

He started an explosion,

Holy cow!

That thing went Bang! Kaboom!

And he's havin' some fun now.

Some fun now!

Seymour, the shnook,
His life was the worst
Oh what a bore dirt poor is
Now take a look
His luck has reversed
Joy to the boy! It sure is some fun now!
He was bringin' up the rear-o
(Some fun now)
He was ringin' up a zero
(Some fun now)
Now he's swingin' into gear-o
Some fun now
Now
Some fun now
Most folks used to sock it to him
(Some fun now)
Told jokes, used to try to screw him
(Some fun now)
Now they're proud to say they knew him
(Some fun now)
Some fun now
Some fun now
That's the way the Whoopie goes
And
(Some fun now)
That's the way the garden grows
And
(Some fun now)
Some fun heaven only knows
It's....
Some fun now!
Some fun now!
Some fun now!
Some fun now!
Some fun now!
Some fun now!
Some fun now!
Some fun now!
