“Mamma Mia!”: Pumped up flippers

Print

(To the tune of Pumped Up Kicks by Foster the People)

Sophie’s getting married young.
Walking ‘round the island won’t tell you her plan. 
She thinks she has 3 dads. 
All standing by the water don’t know what’s going. 
Yeah, Harry found his old guitar,
and Bill comes from the outback 
Yeah the outback.

Chorus:
All the other cast with the flippers on
better swim, better swim, swim ‘til they sink. 
All the other cast with the flippers on
better swim, better swim, swim ‘til they sink. 
All the other cast with the flippers on
better swim, better swim, swim ‘til they sink. 
All the other cast with the flippers on
better swim, better swim, swim ‘til they sink. 

Donna works a long day. 
She’ll be working all day, yeah she’s working all day. 
And she’s in for a surprise.
 ‘Cause all her ex’s are there and feeling nice. 

She’s waited for a long time. 
And now their on her island getting warm and cozy.
She glances at them for a second. 
Then says, “Oh my gosh, what is going on?”

Chorus:
All the other cast with the flippers on
better swim, better swim, swim ‘til they sink. 
All the other cast with the flippers on
better swim, better swim, swim ‘til they sink. 
All the other cast with the flippers on
better swim, better swim, swim ‘til they sink. 
All the other cast with the flippers on
better swim, better swim, swim ‘til they sink.
  
(Swim, Swim, Swim, Swim. Swim, Swim. S-Swim, Swim, Swim. S-Swim. S-Swim, Swim Swim Swim. S-Swim. Swim, Swim. Swim, Swim. Swim, Swim, Swim.)

All the lights were looking dull
yeah their looking dull, too dull to tell. 
All the lights were looking dull
yeah their looking dull, too dull to tell. 

All the sets were too simple
yeah their too simple, too simple for this
All the sets were too simple
yeah their too simple, too simple for this

Overall, I would not recommend
would not recommend it, not recommend it.

I really don’t think that this show lived up to it’s hype. When I compare it to the movie, I personally prefer the movie over the show. I just feel like this was the first broadway show that I have seen that was not well put together, it was more scattered. I didn’t really like how the plot was really scattered and didn’t make much sense unless you knew the storyline to begin with. As for the singing, I didn’t feel like it was great. It seems like they broke into song way too often and at the wrong time for what was going on in the scene. The lighting was really dull, as I said in the song. There was barely anything going on with that. So in the end, this was probably the worst show I have seen this season, and I don’t recommend seeing it.
