lyrics

AKIRA starts the car and drives.

DELFINA:
LET’S ROCK OUR OWN APARTMENT!

AKIRA:
We’re old enough to do that?

DELFINA:
I think so.
LET’S ROCK OUR OWN APARTMENT!
A STUDIO APARTMENT!

AKIRA:
Studio. That sounds cool.

DELFINA:
I WENT TO SEE IT.
YOU WON’T BELIEVE IT!
IT’S KINDA SMALL
BUT IT WOULD BE OURS
IT’S ALL THAT I COULD BARELY AFFORD
IF YOU PAY HALF
AND I PAY HALF.

AKIRA:
BUT IT WOULD BE OURS.
But like a studio, that’s what artists live in, right? Like a whole floor?

DELFINA
Like a starving artist. Like a fourth of a floor, maybe.
WE WOULD MAKE IT ON OUR OWN.
MAKE THAT STUDIO OUR HOME.
GET SOME COUCHES OFF THE STREET.
THERE’S SO MANY,
MAYBE THREE!
ONE FOR YOU AND ME,
AND ONE FOR COMPANY.

AKIRA:
WE’LL DUMPSTER DIVE
TAKE THE STUFF
THAT STANFORD STUDENTS
LEFT BEHIND!
AND EVERY NIGHT
STAY UP ALL NIGHT

ORDER TAKE OUT
MAYBE MAKE-

DELFINA
A PILLOW FIGHT

AKIRA
RIGHT!
WE’LL ROCK OUR OWN APARTMENT!

DELFINA
A STUDIO APARTMENT!
LET’S STOP TO SEE IT.
YOU WON’T BELIEVE IT.
BUT THE BATHROOM
IS SHARED AND DOWN THE HALL.
IT’S ALL THAT I COULD BARELY AFFORD,
IF YOU PAY HALF,
AND I PAY HALF.

AKIRA & DELFINA:
BUT IT WOULD BE OURS.

DELFINA:
TELL OUR PARENTS,
LEAVE US ALONE!
IF THEY WANT
CALL US ON OUR PHONE.
LEAVE A MESSAGE AT THE TONE,
CAUSE WE’RE REALLY BUSY PEOPLE.

AKIRA:
YEAH, WE’RE SUPER BUSY PEOPLE!

DELFINA:
WE’LL BE BUSY
LOUNGING ON OUR COUCHES.
ONE FOR YOU,
AND ONE FOR ME,

AKIRA & DELFINA:
AND ONE FOR COMPANY!

DELFINA & AKIRA:
WE’LL ROCK OUR OWN APARTMENT!
(The sound of a sirens.)

DELFINA:
(trailing off)
A STUDIO--
(AKIRA and DELFINA stiffen as AKIRA pulls over the car.)
