Every variation of every Seussical song on YouTube is different in length, and some songs are different in Seussical, Jr. than they are in the full-length Seussical, making it even harder to match up the lyrics in Bit Players, Bird Girls and Fake Break-Ups with the Seussical songs. So, if you want to hear the music while reading the new lyrics in the book, use these links to access the videos the Bit Players songs are based on.
Many thanks to Dr. Seuss, Seussical composer and librettist Stephen Flaherty, and Seussical lyricist and librettist Lynn Ahrens, for creating works that continue to inspire new generations and new iterations of their fantastic stories and songs. I satirize their work with the greatest respect.
