This is the first song in I Do What I Can: the Musical, and is about Ramone's birth, his good deeds, and how to count by fives.
Singers: He's such a great friend when you're at wits end.
He's here to help you out, we're talking 'bout Ramone.
He was born a cute and little lad to his adoring mom and dad.
Peg and Cat (as Ramone's parents): Our Ramone will be the greatest human being ever known.
Ramone as a baby: Ga ga goo.
Peg as Ramone's mom: He'll have part-time jobs and he'll volunteer,
Helping out here and there, now and then.
Cat as Ramone's dad: And he'll be so kind I can safely say he'll do thirty good deeds before he's ten!
Peg as Ramone's mom: Thirty good deeds?! Such pressure on a tot!
Cat as Ramone's dad: I think he can do it.
Peg as Ramone's mom: But maybe not.
This could be a big problem!
Wait, here's a thought I hadn't "thunk".
Why not do the deeds chunk-by-chunk?
Five, ten, fifteen, twenty, twenty-five, thirty.
That's how you get to thirty counting by fives.
Peg and Cat as Ramone's parents: Five, ten, fifteen, twenty, twenty-five, thirty.
He'll get to thirty; they'll cheer when he arrives.
Peg as Ramone's mom: Yes, counting in--
All but Ramone: Fives!
Counting in fives!
