River and Simon sing about together-ness in words from Disney's Beauty and the Beast: the Musical.


CATEGORY: FILK    TIMES READ: 1678    RATING: 10    SERIES: FIREFLY

NO MATTER WHAT

RIVER (spoken):

Simon? Do you think I'm...odd?

SIMON (spoken; while making notes in his journal):

My sister odd? Where did you get an idea like that?

RIVER (spoken):

I don't know. It's just that...well, people talk.

SIMON (spoken, but now he looks up from his notes):

They talk about me, too.

(SINGS) No, we're not odd, it's true

No fam'ly could be saner

Except that sometimes you--

Well, maybe let that pass

In all you say or do

You couldn't make it plainer

You are my little sister, therefore you are class

RIVER (SINGS):

So I should just accept

I'm simply not like them

SIMON:

They are the common herd

And you should take my word

You are unique

Creme de la creme

(moves to her side and wraps his arm around her shoulder)

No matter what you do, I'm on your side

And if my point of view is somewhat misty-eyed

There's nothing clearer in my life

Than what I wish and feel for you

And that's a lot

No matter what

RIVER:

No matter what they say

You make me proud

I love the funny way you stand out in our crowd

SIMON (looks into the medlab seriously):

It's my intention, my invention

That shows the world out there, someday

Just what we've got

BOTH:

No matter what

SIMON:

Now some may say all big brothers just exaggerate

RIVER:

That every little sister's great?

SIMON:

You are!

RIVER(she giggles):

And every sister tends to say her big bro's tops!

SIMON:

She pulls out all the stops

To praise him

BOTH: And quite rightly

SIMON (with a sad smile, he runs his hand over her hair):

No matter what the pain

We've come this far

I pray that you won't remain forever as you are

This really is a case of big brother knowing best

RIVER:

And mei-mei, too

SIMON:

You're never strange

RIVER:

Don't ever change

BOTH:

You're all I've got

No matter what
