CAT
Oh, the Thinks you can think
If you're willing to try...
Think invisible ink! Or a gink with a stink!
Or a stair to the sky...
If you open your mind,
Oh, the Thinks you will find
Lining up to get loose...
Oh, the Thinks you can think
When you think about...

CAT, ALL (except BOY)
Seuss! Seuss! Seuss! Seuss!... Seuss!

ALL (except BOY)
Oh, the Thinks you can think!
Any Thinker who thinks can come up with a few!

CAT
Oh, the Thinks you can think!

ALL
Think a trip on a ship to the Vipper of Vipp
Or to Solla Sollew...

CAT (spoken)
Think of beautiful Schlopp...

BOY (spoken)
With a cherry on top!

CAT, BOY, ALL
You don't need an excuse!

CAT, BOY (spoken)
Oh, the Thinks you can think

CAT, BOY, ALL
When you think about Seuss!
Seuss! Seuss! Seuss! Seuss...

HORTON
Think of an elephant up in a tree

MAYOR, MRS. MAYOR
Think of a person too tiny to see

GERTRUDE
Think of a bird with a one-feather tail

ALL
Going on adventure down a dangerous trail! Aagh!
MAYZIE
Think a bird who flies off on a spree

SOUR KANGAROO
Think of a kangaroo, sour as can be

WICKERSHAMS
Think of some monkeys with trouble in store

CAT
Think of something horrible and hairy

CAT, PRINCIPLES (except BOY)
Something sinister and scary

ALL (except BOY)
That you never dared to think of before

ALL
Think of nobody here
Feeling of fear
And the darkness of night
(With menace) Oooh Oooh...
All alone in your room
As you're facing your doom

CAT (spoken)
Think a glimmer of light
ALL (with relief)
Aah Aah!

CAT
But I hope you're prepared To be scareder than scared

CAT, ALL (except BOY)
'Cause this ain't mother goose

CAT (spoken)
Danger’s right on the brink

CAT, ALL (except BOY)
When you Think about Seuss

MEN / WOMEN
Seuss! Seuss! Seuss! Seuss! Seuss!

CAT (spoken)
An unusual story will soon be unfurled
Of an elephant trying to save a small world
And a boy from that world
Who has Thinks just like you

CAT, ALL
Just Think
WHOS
From the Planet of Who

BOY
And the smallest of small.

BIRDS, WICKERSHAMS, SOUR KANGAROO
To the jungle of Nool

HORTON
And the largest of all

ALL
You think and think and think and think
And think and think and think
And think… just think!
Oh, the Thinks you can think
Think and wonder and dream
Far and wide as you dare

CAT
Oh, the thinks you can think

ALL
When your thinks have run dry
In the blink of an eye
There's another think there
If you open your mind
Oh, the thinks you will find
Lining up to get loose
Oh, the thinks you can think

ECHO
Oh, the thinks you can think

ALL
Oh, the thinks you can think

ECHO
Oh, the thinks you can think

ALL
Oh, the thinks you can think
When you think about Seuss
(The SOUR KANGAROO riffs through the following.)

ALL
Seuss! Seuss! Seuss! Seuss! Seuss! Seuss!

BOY
Seuss!
