Song Lyrics


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!


Hoggle: You need to understand my position: I'm a coward. And Jareth scares me.
Sarah: What kind of position is that?
Hoggle: NO position! That's my point! And you wouldn't be so brave if you'd ever smelled the Bog of Eternal Stench. It's, it's...
Sarah: Is that all it does, it smells?
Hoggle: Oh, believe me, that's enough. But the worst thing is, if you so much as put a foot in the Bog of Stench, you'll smell bad for the rest of your life. It'll never wash off.

Jareth: Hello, Hedgewart.
Sarah: Hogwart.
Hoggle: HOG-GLE!

Jareth: If I thought for one second that you were betraying me, I'd be forced to suspend you head first in the Bog of Eternal Stench.
Hoggle: OH NO, YOUR MAJESTY! NOT THE ETERNAL STENCH!
Jareth: Oh, YES, Hoggle!

Jareth: Oh dear, poor Hoghead.
Hoggle: Hoggle.
Jareth: I've just noticed that your lovely jewels are missing.
Hoggle: Uh, oh, yes! So they are. My lovely jewels. Missing. I'd better find 'em, but first, I'll take that young lady back to the beginning, just like we planned!
Jareth: Wait! I've got a much better plan, Hoggle. Give her this.
[Jareth tosses him a peach.]
Hoggle: What is it?
Jareth: It's a present.
Hoggle: Ain't gonna hurt the little lady, is it?
Jareth: Now, why the concern?
Hoggle: I won't do nothin' to harm her.
Jareth: Oh, come, come, come, Hogbrain! I'm suprised at you, losing your head over a girl.
Hoggle: I ain't lost my head!
Jareth: You don't think a young girl could like a repulsive little scab like you, do you?
Hoggle: Well, she did say we was...
Jareth: What? Bosom companions? [dangerously] Friends?
Hoggle: It don't matter.
Jareth: You'll give her that peach, Hoggle, or I'll dip you straight into the Bog of Eternal Stench before you can blink! And Hoggle, if she ever kisses you, I'll turn you into a prince.
Hoggle: Y-you will?
Jareth: Prince of the Land of Stench! [laughs]

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: Help!
Hands 1: What do you mean help? We are Helping.
Hands 2: We're Helping Hands.

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?

Sarah: That's not fair!
Jareth: You say that so often. I wonder what your basis for comparison is.

Sarah: What a horrible place this is! It's not fair!
Bottom Red Guard: That's right. It's not fair!
[All the guards laugh.]
Bottom Red Guard: But that's only half of it!
Sarah: This was a dead end a minute ago.
Bottom Blue Guard: No, that's the dead end behind you!
[All the guards laugh, and Sarah sees that they are right.]
Sarah: It keeps changing! What am I supposed to do?
Bottom Red Guard: The only way out of here is to try one of these doors.
Bottom Blue Guard: One of them leads to the castle at the centre of the Labyrinth, and the other one leads to...
Top Blue Guard: B-b-b-BOOM!
Bottom Blue Guard: Certain death!
All Guards: Ooooooooh!
Sarah: Which one is which?
Bottom Red Guard: Er, we can't tell you.
Sarah: Why not?
[The bottom guards think and mutter to each other.]
Bottom Red Guard: We don't know!
Bottom Blue Guard: [looks up at top guards] But they do.
Sarah: Oh. Then I'll ask them.
Top Red Guard: No. You can't ask us. You can only ask one of us.
Top Blue Guard: It's the rules, and I should warn you that one of us always tells the truth, and one of us always lies. That's the rules too. He always lies.
Top Red Guard: I do not! I tell the truth!
Top Blue Guard: Oooh, what a lie!

Sir Didymus: My brother! Canst thou summon up the very rocks?
Ludo: Sure. Rocks friends.

Worm: 'Ello.
Sarah: Did you say... hello?
Worm: No, I said "'ello," but that's close enough.

Worm: No! Don't go that way! Never go that way!
Sarah: Oh... thank you!
(Sarah goes in opposite direction):
Worm: If she had kept going down that way, she would've gone straight to that castle!

Don't tell me truth hurts, little girl, 'cause it hurts like hell...

Down in The Underground, you'll find someone true...
