Doc: “When I was your age…”

Action: “…you was never my age, none of ya. And the sooner you creeps get hip to that the sooner you’ll dig us.”

What does he mean by this? Is he right? Have you ever had someone say, “When I was your age…” to you? How did you react?

Bellwork #3 6/7/2017

Respond to the lyrics – what do they mean and are they still true today?

AMERICA

ANITA

Puerto Rico,

My heart’s devotion–

Let it sink back in the ocean.

Always the hurricanes blowing,

Always the population growing,

And the money owing.

And the sunlight streaming,

And the natives steaming.

I like the island Manhattan,

Smoke on your pipe and put that in.
GIRLS (chorus)

I like to be in America,

Okay by me in America,

Everything free in America –
BERNARDO

For a small fee in America.
ANITA

Buying on credit is so nice.
BERNARDO

One look at us and they charge twice.
ROSALIA

I’ll have my own washing machine.
JUANO

What will you have, though, to keep clean?
ANITA

Skyscrapers bloom in America.
ANOTHER GIRL

Cadillacs zoom in America.
ANOTHER GIRL

Industry boom in America.
BOYS

Twelve in a room in America.
ANITA

Lots of new housing with more space.
BERNARDO

Lots of doors slamming in our face.

ANITA

I’ll get a terrace apartment.
BERNARDO

Better get rid of your accent.
ANITA AND THREE GIRLS

Life can be bright in America.
BERNARDO

If you can fight in America.
ALL GIRLS

Life is all right in America.
ALL BOYS

If you’re all white in America.
(an interlude of WHISTLING and DANCING)
ANITA AND CONSUELO

Here you are free and you have pride.
BERNARDO

Long as you stay on your own side.
ANITA

Free to be anything you choose.
ALL BOYS

Free to wait tables and shine shoes.
BERNARDO

Everywhere grime in America,

Organized crime in America,

Terrible time in America.
ANITA

You forget I’m in America.
(An interlude of MORE DANCING)
BERNARDO

I think I go back to San Juan
ANITA

I know a boat you can get on.
BERNARDO

Everyone there will give big cheer.
ANITA

Everyone there will have moved here.

Today the Romeo and Juliet Projects were due. I will accept them late, but you will lose 20% each day they are late.

We also started watching West Side Story in order to compare it to Romeo and Juliet.
