Just You Wait - song from My Fair Lady

Here's a scene from My Fair Lady. Eliza Dolittle, a flower seller wants lessons to improve her pronunciation. So she asks Henry Higgins to teach her. But his methods are a little too much for her and she vents by imagining how she would take revenge on him.

Click here to watch video clip Just You Wait.

Just you wait, 'enry 'iggins, just you wait!
You'll be sorry, but your tears'll be to late!
You'll be broke, and I'll have money;
Will I help you? Don't be funny!

Just you wait, 'enry 'iggins, just you wait!J
ust you wait, 'enry 'iggins, till you're sick,
And you scream to fetch a doctor double-quick.
I'll be off a second later
And go straight to the the-ater!
Oh ho ho, 'enry 'iggins, just you wait!

Ooooooh 'enry 'iggins!
Just you wait until we're swimmin' in the sea!
Ooooooh 'enry 'iggins!
And you get a cramp a little ways from me!
When you yell you're going to drown
I'll get dressedand go to town!
Oh ho ho, 'enry 'iggins!Oh ho ho, 'enry 'iggins! Just you wait!

One day I'll be famous! I'll be proper and prim;
Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim!
One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing,
I want all of England your praises to sing.
Next week on the twentieth of May
I proclaim Liza Doolittle Day!
All the people will celebrate the glory of you
And whatever you wish and want I gladly will do.

''Thanks a lot, King' says I, in a manner well-bred;
But all I want is 'enry 'iggins 'ead!''

'Done,' says the King with a stroke.'
Guard, run and bring in the bloke!'

Then they'll march you, 'enry 'iggins to the wall;
And the King will tell me: 'Liza, sound the call.'

As they lift their rifles higher, I'll shout:'Ready! Aim! Fire!'
Oh ho ho, 'enry 'iggins,Down you'll go, 'enry 'iggins!Just you wait!
