Song Lyrics


Once upon a time, there was a beautiful young girl whose stepmother always made her stay home with the baby. And the baby was a spoiled child, and wanted everything for himself, and the young girl was practically a slave. But what no one knew is that the king of the goblins had fallen in love with the girl, and he had given her certain powers. So one night, when the baby had been particularly cruel to her, she called on the goblins for help!


I can bear it no longer! Goblin King! Goblin King! Wherever you may be take this child of mine far away from me!

Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City to take back the child that you have stolen, for my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom is as great — You have no power over me.

Stepmother: She treats me like a wicked stepmother in a fairy story, no matter what I say.

Worm: If she'd 'ave kept on goin' down that way she'd 'ave gone straight to that castle.

Hoggle: The Cleaners, the Bog of Stench -- you sure got his attention!

Ludo: SMELL BAD!

Didymus: I say, does anyone want to play a game of Scrabble?

Worm: Come in side, have a nice cup o' tea.

Bird Hat: It is so stimulating being your hat!

Goblin Cannon Ball: I hit zumzing? Yes? No?

Fiery: It's against the rules to throw other people's heads.

Jareth: Turn back, Sarah. Turn back before it's too late.
Sarah: I can't. Don't you understand that I can't?
Jareth: What a pity.

Sarah: Ow! It bit me!
Hoggle: What'd you expect fairies to do?
Sarah: I thought they did nice things, like granting wishes!
Hoggle: Huh. Shows what you know, don't it?

Hoggle: You know your problem? You take too many things for granted. Take this Labyrinth: even if you get to the centre, you'll never get out again.
Sarah: That's your opinion.
Hoggle: Well, it's a lot better than yours!
Sarah: Thanks for nothing, Hogwart.
Hoggle: [growls] It's HOGGLE, and don't say I didn't warn you!
