Seize the Day (from "Newsies")

Music by Alan Menken | Lyrics by Jack Feldman

Open the gates and seize the day
Don't be afraid and don't delay
Nothing can break us
No one can make us
Give our rights away
Arise and seize the day

Now is the time to seize the day (Now is the time to seize the day)
Send out the call and join the fray (Send out the call and join the fray)
Wrongs will be righted
If we're united
Let us seize the day

Friends of the friendless, seize the day (Friends of the friendless, seize the day)
Raise up the torch and light the way (Raise up the torch and light the way)
Proud and defiant
We'll slay the giant
Let us seize the day

Neighbor to neighbor
Father to son
One for all and all for one

Open the gates and seize the day
Don't be afraid and don't delay
Nothing can break us
No one can make us
Give our rights away

Neighbor to neighbor
Father to son
One for all and all for one
