Somewhere That's Green, is a song in the 1986 Little Shop of Horrors. It is one of the saddest songs in the entire story. It describes Audrey's dream to leave Orin Scrivello, D.D.S and marry Seymour. It is sung once in the normal movie but a reprise is sung in the 1986 original Ending. The Song is sung by Audrey, with one line to Crystal. Many similarities can be drawn to the song "Part of Your World" from Disney's 1989 film The Little Mermaid, as they were both written by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Howard Ashman, who referred to the song as Somewhere That's Wet. Both are the "I Want" songs
Audrey: I know Seymour's the greatest But I'm dating a semi-sadist. So I've got a black eye And my arm's in a cast.
Still, that Seymour's a cutie. Well, if not, he's got inner beauty. And I dream of a place Where we could be together at last-
Crystal: "'What kind of place is that, honey? An emergency room?"
Audrey: "Oh no. It's just a daydream of mine. A little development I dream of. Just off the Interstate. Nothing fancy like Levittown. Just a little street in a little suburb, far far from Urban Skid Row. The sweetest, greenest place- where everybody has the same little lawn out front and the same little flagstone patio out back. And all the houses are so neat and pretty... 'Cause they all look just alike. Oh, I dream about it all the time. Just me. And the toaster. And a sweet little guy. Like Seymour-"
A matchbox of our own A fence of real chain link A grill out on the patio Disposal in the sink A washer and a dryer and an ironing machine In a tract house that we share Somewhere that's green
He rakes and trims the grass He loves to mow and weed I cook like Betty Crocker And I look like Donna Reed There's plastic on the furniture To keep it neat and clean In the Pine-Sol scented air, Somewhere that's green
Between our frozen dinner And our bed-time: nine-fifteen We snuggle watching Lucy On our big, enormous Twelve-inch screen
I'm his December Bride He's father, he knows best Our kids watch Howdy Doody As the sun sets in the west A picture out of Better Homes and Gardens Magazine Far from Skid Row I dream we'll go somewhere that's... green
