Matilda The Musical Lyrics

Based on the beloved novel by Roald Dahl, Matilda The Musical continues to thrill sold-out audiences of all ages on Broadway and in London’s West End and is now on stage at the Ahmanson Theatre. The Wall Street Journal says, “The makers of Matilda have done the impossible – triumphantly! It is smart, sweet, zany and stupendous fun.” Discover some of that zany fun with the lyrics to Matilda's opening number, "Miracle (Part I)," written by Tim Minchin.

Children’s Entertainer
ONE CAN HARDLY MOVE FOR BEAUTY AND BRILLIANCE THESE DAYS
IT SEEMS THAT THERE ARE MILLIONS OF THESE
ONE-IN-A-MILLIONS THESE DAYS
“SPECIALNESS” SEEMS DE-RIGUEUR
ABOVE AVERAGE IS AVERAGE, GO FIGUEUR,
IS IT SOME MODERN MIRACLE OF CALCULUS
THAT SUCH FREQUENT MIRACLES DON’T RENDER EACH ONE
UNMIRACULOUS?
