Harold and Maude (1971)

Harold: Maude?

Maude: Yeah?

Harold: [pulls the stamped coin from the arcade out of his pocket] Here.

Maude: A gift!

[reads the engraving]

Maude: “Harold loves Maude.”… and Maude loves Harold. This is the nicest gift I’ve received in years.

[she throws the stamped coin into the water]

Harold: [gasps, bemused]

Maude: So I’ll always know where it is.

  1. “If You Want To Sing Out, Sing Out”

    Well, if you want to sing out, sing out
    And if you want to be free, be free
    ‘Cause there’s a million things to be
    You know that there are

    And if you want to live high, live high
    And if you want to live low, live low
    ‘Cause there’s a million ways to go
    You know that there are

    [Chorus:]
    You can do what you want
    The opportunity’s on
    And if you can find a new way
    You can do it today
    You can make it all true
    And you can make it undo
    you see ah ah ah
    its easy ah ah ah
    You only need to know

    Well if you want to say yes, say yes
    And if you want to say no, say no
    ‘Cause there’s a million ways to go

    And if you want to be me, be me
    And if you want to be you, be you
    ‘Cause there’s a million things to do
    You know that there are

    [Chorus]

    Well, if you want to sing out, sing out
    And if you want to be free, be free
    ‘Cause there’s a million things to be
    You know that there are
    You know that there are
    You know that there are
    You know that there are
    You know that there are
