Lyrics to We Go Together

I'm sure that most of you are already aware that the "Much Ado About Nothing" soundtrack is climbing the iTunes charts ahead of its release on CD next week.

For a bit of fun, sue_denimme has transcribed the lyrics to "We Go Together", one of the bonus tracks, which is sung by David and Catherine, and she's given me permission to share her transcription here.

For those of you yet to see the play, I'll place the lyrics behind a cut, even though the song is not included in the performance.


We Go Together
(bonus track on the Much Ado About Nothing soundtrack)

Sung by Catherine Tate and David Tennant

[spoken]
Catherine: How long is this gonna take?
David: Here we go!
Catherine: Don't make me do this.
David: Oh, you're gonna love it!

[sung]
David: We're like a branch and its vine
Catherine: Like a drunk and his wine
David: Like the leaves and the breeze
Catherine: Fatty food and disease
David: And like a sheep and a lamb
Catherine: Like a pig and a ham
David: We go together --

[spoken]
Catherine: Can I go now? ...can I just...?

[sung]
David: Just like Shakespeare and verse
Catherine: Like a corpse and a hearse
David: Like a song and a dance
Catherine: Like the English and France
David: Like a Persian and rugs
Catherine: Like a headache and drugs
Both: We go together, you and I
David: We go together like the news and the weather
We fit like hand in glove
Catherine: For now and forever
David: Just like birds of a feather
We fly so high above
We stick together like the earth and the sun
Catherine: Like a dentist and fun
David: We go like honey and bees
Catherine: Like a mold on a cheese
David: And like a bird and its nest
Catherine: Like a clown and depressed
Both: We go together, you and I

[spoken]
David: Wait for it, wait for it!
[horn solo. At the end David stops and gasps for breath]
Catherine: *What* was THAT?!
David: That was me playing with my old horn!
Catherine: Oh. Shouldn't you wait 'til I've gone?
David: Ah, feels so good to hold it again!
Catherine: Well, you've not had it out in ages!
David: D'you want a go with it?
Catherine: I'm not putting that in my mouth!

[sung]
Catherine: We go together and we know that whatever
We're stuck like nails and glue
David: There's nothing can sever
Such a well-made endeavour as me --
Catherine: -- And me
David: -- And you
Catherine: I guess it's true
We're like a yawn and a dream
David: Like a cherry on cream
Catherine: Like the wind and a kite
David: Now you've got it, all right!
Catherine: We're like a parent and child!
David: Like a -- sorry, what?!
Catherine: We go together, you and I
David: You and me
Catherine: We go together, me and you
David: That's right, we do!
Both: We go together... you and I!

[spoken]
David: Ah! See, I told you you'd enjoy yourself!
Catherine: Yeah! ...It's smaller than I thought, though.
David: ...Are you still talking about my horn?
Catherine: Yup.

This is the only one I've listened to off the soundtrack because I was assured it wasn't in the performance and who can go past some DT/CT innuendo - it's been on constant repeat :)

Michael Bruce wrote We Go Together, and Light of Love is by Leonarde Gybson; the other nine 'songs' were all written by Shakespeare - some are sonnets, others are verses from 'Much Ado' and other plays - and some of them have been altered slightly to fit this production.
