A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Musical – “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”

unnamed

Violet eventually decides that she’s going up to Mount Fraught and talk to Count Olaf himself to get Sunny. Sure it’s kind of outlandish and unlikely to work out but she’s just planning to get to the peak and intends to figure what to do once the 4 get there. Luckily Esme hasn’t figured how to get there to the surprise of no one. Though Quigley says that Violet will invent a way without saying her name. And invent Violet does by saying how they can still used the forked shoes. Esme gets on the toboggan as the children pull it all the way up the frozen waterfall as she calls, “Mush!” to go faster. At the top, they find Count Olaf waiting with his two mysterious friends and Esme having to break that they missed a few volunteers.

For the song, I had to include Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s duet “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” which is about how the couple will always be there for each other no matter what the circumstance. And for God’s sake, since this book is focused on a mountain, I had to include it somehow. In this version, I have Violet and Klaus sing this to Esme about their sister.

 

“Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” (ASOUE Version)

Sung by Violet and Klaus Baudelaire

Violet:
Listen, Esme
Ain’t no mountain high
Ain’t no valley low
Ain’t no river wide enough, Esme

I’ll climb up and ask Olaf
To get young little Sunny back
No matter how far (don’t worry, Sunny)
I just climb up
I’ll be there in a hurry
She don’t have to worry
Cause you know there

Violet and Klaus:
Ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to Sunny

Violet:
We’ll climb the falls
With my forked shoes
We’ll pull your sleigh and see the climbing through
Do not expect an easy climb
But we’ll get you up there
Some way, some how
Cause you know there

Violet and Klaus:
Ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to Sunny

Violet:
Oh no, Esme

No wind, no rain
Nor winter storm
Can’t stop us to her

Klaus:
No no, Esme

Cause she is with us

If she’s ever in trouble
We’ll be there on the double
We’ll climb for her

Yes, Esme!

Violet:
We want her alive
If you break her heart
I’ll go after and tear you apart

If she ever needs a helping hand
I’ll be there on the double
Just as fast as I can

Don’t you know that there…

Violet and Klaus:
Ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you
Ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough
Ain’t no river wide enough
Ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough
