Lyrics

PRINCETON
Why does everything have to be so hard?

GARY COLEMAN
Maybe you'll never find your purpose.

CHRISTMAS EVE
Lots of people don't.

PRINCETON
But then -- I don't know why I'm even alive!

KATE MONSTER
Well, who does, really?

(sung)
Everyone's a little bit unsatisfied.
BRIAN
Everyone goes 'round a little empty inside.

GARY COLEMAN
Take a breath, look around.

BRIAN
Swallow your pride.

KATE MONSTER
For now...

BRIAN, KATE, GARY AND CHRISTMAS EVE
For now...

NICKY
Nothing lasts,

ROD
Life goes on.

NICKY
Full of surprises.

ROD
You'll be faced
with problems
of all shapes and sizes.

CHRISTMAS EVE
You're going to have
to make a few
compromises...
for now...

ALL
But only for now! (for now)
Only for now! (for now)
Only for now! (for now)
Only for now!

LUCY
For now we're healthy.

BRIAN
For now we're employed.

BAD IDEA BEARS
For now we're happy...

KATE MONSTER
If not overjoyed.

PRINCETON
And we'll accept the things
we cannot avoid, for now...

GARY COLEMAN
For now...

TREKKIE MONSTER
For now...

KATE MONSTER
For now...

ALL
But only for now! (for now)
Only for now! (for now)
Only for now! (for now)
Only for now!

Only for now!
(For now there's life!)
Only for now!
(For now there's love!)
Only for now!
(For now there's work!)
For now there's happiness!
But only for now!
(For now discomfort!)
Only for now!
(For now there's friendship!)
Only for now (for now)
Only for now!

Only for now! (Sex!)
Is only for now! (Your hair!)
Is only for now! (George Bush!)
Is only for now!

Don't stress,
relax,
let life roll off
your backs
except for death
and paying taxes
everything in life is
only for now!

NICKY
Each time you smile...

ALL
... Only for now

KATE MONSTER
It'll only last a while.

ALL
... Only for now

PRINCETON
Life may be scary...

ALL
... Only for now
But it's only temporary.

Ba-dumb ba-dumb,
ba-dumb ba-dumb
ba-dumb ba-dumb
ba-da da da da
ba-da da-da da da-da
ba-dumb ba-da, ba-dumb
ba-da, oooooh --

PRINCETON
Everything in life is only for now.
