You made yourself the hero
In the night as black as pitch
Yeah you made yourself the hero
Oh, I guess that makes me the witch
I’m Still Here (a/k/a a song from Follies quite “inappropriate” for a 17 year old to sing.)

Mayzie la Bird
did not keep her word
Not back in a day, so Horton could search
Horton stayed with the egg, the Whos left in a lurch.
As a large sitting duck, dear Horton was found
(A warning, fair readers, here spoilers abound):
Yes, Mayzie’s claim to be back shortly did not happen. However, Horton (who meant what he said and said what he meant - an elephant’s faithful 100 percent) keeps his promise to her and stays on the egg for a very long time.
Unfortunately, hunters come and capture Horton! He is auctioned off “Egg, Nest, and Tree” and is forced to join the Circus McGurkus. The circus tours the country until it ends up in Palm Beach, where a certain awol bird has been spending her time….

A little back story to this clip
in case you didn’t know
(some of) what leads to this moment
in this little show:
Horton the elephant lives in the jungle of Nool, where he feels a bit lost and lonely. One day, from a speck of dust, he hears a voice. The speck of dust turns out to be the planet of Who. Horton decides to protect it and the resident Whos by placing the speck on a clover and making sure it is kept stable and safe. After all, “a person’s a person, no matter how small.”
Unfortunately, the other residents of Nool (save Gertrude McFuzz) do not take kindly to Horton’s “thinking differently” than the rest of the group and hearing things they can’t hear. They pick on and make fun, and then the mean monkey Wickersham Brothers steal the clover and run off through the jungle with Who.
Horton follows as best as he can, but when all is said and done, the Whos’ clover is dropped into a field of clover 100 miles wide. He sets about trying to find his clover, which is where our scene opens.
