Forbidden Broadway Vol. 2 1. Opening & Who do They Know? - There's a great White Way where the white is grey and the great is only ok And the stars we toast Give themselves a roast Forbidden Broadway... Excuse me. Hey, hey, hey! What? Would you way to keep us done and try to sing a song? Don't worry. You're not bothering us. Bla, bla, bla... Hey, Hey, just a minute! You're to noisy. What's the matter? Haven't you ever done diner theatre? Yeah. How did you get this job? My brother-in law is the director. Figures. See? - Can you believe it? I saw "Les Mis" I saw "Big River" And "Phantom of the Opera" Gave me a shiver. - Can you believe it Dustin is grand And Tyne Daly socks me Seeing new shows Unbearably shocks me. - I loved the "Cats" "Sun in the Dark" And all of the great "White Zoo" - Sarah Brightman was fine. And Sting was divine. But I ask myself To light turn blue: Who? Who? Who do they know? Who do they know? Who gets them where they want to go? When a girl wants to tap dance'n'sing You will things that her talent's the thing But more likely it's whose phone shall ring Whenever she turns her lights down low. - I've never heard of anybody in the show... - Who do they know? Who do they know? Or grandpa, uncle, dad, or Paul If you happen to know them, Won't you let me show them? That I know one Who they should know? - Hell, is great! Harold Prince is in the house. Who do they know? Heddy Lamarr knew Louis B. Mayer. Who do they know? Judy and Liza were more than just friends. - Who gets them where they want to go. "Six Degrees" is a nice little play Stockard Channing blows people away Jackie Mason is great (Oy, boy, boy... I gotta talk like this... to do about my show like that) Who do they Know? Jennifer Grey is the daughter of Joel... Who do they know? Amanda Plummer loves Tammy and Chris. Old grandpa, uncle, dad or Paul. If you happen to know them Won't you let me show them? That I know one Who they should know? If you happen to know them Won't you let me show them? That I Know one Who they should know. 2. Forbidden Broadway Vol. 2 "Forbidden Broadway " Volume 2 A new decade of spoofs and hemlock Laced with arsenic and rhyme. "Forbidden Broadway volume 2 Get your Beebe's, and slings, and arrows And be a partner in crime. We'll made Mandy chuck Make Madonna cluck Fly the phantom's cloack Through the gutter. Make George M. a god, Cut out "Sweeny Todd". And stick "Annie" In " Oh! Calcutta!" "Forbidden Broadway" volume 2, Not too kosher 'cause it's the hammiest night in theatre today. So come with us, On an omnibus To a theatre goer's soirée. It's volume 2 on CD. "Forbidden Broadway" volume 2 Chita, Rita and Martin Charnin said: - 'God! Please leave us alone". "Forbidden Broadway volume 2 Marvin Hamlisch and Stephen Sondheim Have packed and move to beyond. Ethel Merman sneered. Mary Martin cheered, Than she autographed "South Pacific". Betty Comden flipped. Adolph Green was ripped. And Bea Arthur said: - 'It's terrific! "Forbidden Broadway" volume 2 It's corrosive And so explosive The Shuberts better gain way. We'll give the hiss To "La Cage", "Les Mis" And slay Joel Grey's "Cabaret". Buy volume 2 without delay On "Forbidden Broadway". 3.

Both - I Got the show right here! 4. Patti LuPone & I Get A Kick Out Of Me (Anything Goes & I Get a Kick Out of You) - In olden days This show was shocking 'cause Merman would keep them rocking but now they phone... - Patti LuPone. - Good critics to who used four letter words Now have to search for better words How she's wrong - Patti LuPone. - And soar my e a ea-ea-ea ea-ea-ea-ea-ea-ea ea-ea-ea-ea-ea Like a, like a alike, you like Just like Eva Perón. - Patti LuPone - Patti Lu... - Patti Lu... - Patti Lu... - Patti LuPone. - I make it better than Patti - My story is much too sad to be told. I've played nearly ev'rything And I'm not very old. May only exception I know is the case When I'm acting for bourgeoisie Fighting vainly the old ennui And I suddenly turned and see My fabulous face. I get no kick in a show A Broadway song doesn't thrill me for long Evita was now happy spree. But I get a kick out of me. Some snoot cocaine when they're low I need no sniff 'cause I think who's the diff' I'm already terrific to sing And I get a kick out of me. I get a kick when I smile and sneer And people cheer up for me. I get a kick thou my voice is shrill 'cause Frank Ritchwell still adore me. I got no kick in "Les Mis", Dying for art in a part of a type Broke my heart at the smile I received. But I get a kick out of me. I get a kick when I fire my machine gun like legato. I get a kick when my lyrics crushed into my rush obbligato. I get no kick on a stage, Flashing some guy with my Stuby Key-ed eye Isn't why I amend this degree. It's I get a kick out of me. 5. Into the Words (Into the Woods & Weekend in The Country) - Once upon a time... There was a great song writer called Stephen Sondheim. He had many, many hit shows, among each were "Sunday in the Park with George"... - I wish... - ..."Assassins"... - I wish... - ...and the fairy tale musical of 1988 "Into the woods". - ... I wish... - All the characters in all the shows were very happy to be in a prestigious Sondheim musical except for a few things... - ... I wish... I wish this show is more melodic, I wish. - I wish... I wish this show is not so bloody, I wish. - I wish... I wish the lyrics weren't so wordy, I wish. - You see with Sondheim's shows people sometimes miss the point. They're supposed to listen and go... - Into the words. - Into the words. - Into the words, the metaphors, the synonyms, the perfect stand. Into the words, the detail and Tricky little phrases. Into the words, the what, the where, The when, the why, the plot began? Into the words, the work, The craft, the garnish or the phrases. Into the words. Into the words The music waits, Into the words, Into the words The lyric states that into the words Your content always Comes before your form 'n style. Into the words It turn all rhymes That even baffled Merman. Into the words It's a quick exchange So very strange you'll cry and smile. And never repeat a verse or a bridge This isn't Jerry Herman. Into the words. Into the words They always teach Into the words. Into the words To hear me preach The paths are clear, if understood, I have no fear 'cause I'm so good. The scores, the star, The stars are just wood. I sort of hate to ask it But what's rhyme for basket? Into the words that drip your lip Then fry your brain and strain your tong. Into the words a case so dark You better bring a torch in. Into the words that fly and try To make you jump that joke inside. (???) Into the words more letters than They sell on "Wheel of Fortune". - Very good! You're all graduated. So now let's to do it up to tempo. Ready? One... Two... Twelve... Eight... - Into the words that drip your lip Then fry your brain and strain your tong. Into the words a case so dark You better bring a torch in. Into the words that fly and try To make you jump that joke inside. (???) Into the words more letters than They sell on "Wheel of Fortune". We're into the syllables Into the antonymous Into the metaphors Into the synonymous Care for erudition Care for erudition (???) Care for erudition Careful out of the words.(???) 6. Annie II (Tomorrow) I'm 30 years old, Tomorrow. And I haven't work since I've played "Annie"; When I was ten. But may be there's hope, Tomorrow. May be Mr. Charnin Will bring "Annie", Back again. Tomorrow, tomorrow Revive me tomorrow Before I'm a dinosaur. A sequel, a sequel You promised me a sequel Like "Nightmare on Elm St. IV". 7. M. Butterfly (Poor Butterfly) I'm M. Butterfly, I'm a Chinese spy Dressed in a dress. I must confess, For you'll never guess, I blush to blind I'm M. Butterfly. M. Butterfly, Strangest show Since "Equus" M. Butterfly 'commi' spies in drag John Lithgow thinks He is a she The she he drives Lithgow wild And when he says He's with child You murmur... gee! I can't get by Where he put His peepee. That weirdo guy Can't tell boys from girls. And so he crumbles In grief While you watch Instant disbelief. It's one swell lie M. Butterfly That make up is not unique to the rest. And so he crumbles in grief While you watch instant disbelief. It's time to die, M. Butterfly. 8. Madonna's Brain (The Rain In Spain) Madonna - Quit Professor Mammet Quit Professor Mammet Teach Madonna how to speak. Please, quit, Professor Mammet. There you wrote, "Speed the Plow", you can teach Madonna how... ...how to move, how to work never mind to talk. - Why do you wanna do this to me, David? Mammet - Why? - Yes, why to me?

Never, Never Panned (Never Never Land) My name is Mary Martin and, As Peter Pan I'm grand Some critics hesitate But they always thinks I am great I'm never, never panned. To be a critics' darling sing Impeccably, but bland Just keep an open throat And then scoop on ev'ry note. You're never, never panned. You'll win a Tony if you're coy-like. More precious far than gold. And if you dress a boy-like, Your act'll buy all spree sold. (???) So come with me where critics rave And meanies understand. You too can be a star Like my son who plays J.R., on "Dallas", We're never, never panned. 10. Somewhat Overindulgent (Over The Rainbow) My name is Mandy, Mandy J. Patinkin And I've been thinkin' I might Be known more As a male chanteuse. So if you like my 20 songs on CD, To short, come to see me ev'ry night. Dressing Casual and loose And turning on Adios, While emoting like a goose. Somewhat Overindulgent Like I'm hie. I interpret all lyric Like I'm about to die. Somewhat overindulgent I seem blue And you'll won't recognize The tune after I get through. Someday I'll do a one-man-show Sing Jolson's songs like "Old Black Joe" And "Mammy". I'll emphasize almost ev'ry word And tweetle like a little bird To prove I'm Amy. (???) Somewhere overindulgent Watch me cry. (Are you watching me cry, mamma?) Barbra did in "Yentl" Why, then, oh why can't I? If Barbra Streisand gets to be Beyond indulgent Why, oh why, not me? 11. Chita-Rita (America) Chita - A-ha-ha-ha-ha-há! Miss Moreno her rude dire'tions Are all lousy imitations. Though we both did "West Side Story", Hers was like Chiken Cacciatore. Chiken o' the glory. But don't let that cat in I'm the fiery Latin.

And I invented the ay, ay... Well... Rita was lisping in "King and I". I have done "Bye, Bye Birdie", "Chicago", "Bajour" And I never missed one matinée, people. And when choruses (???) screamed and yelled ay, ay, ay! How I love all the gay people. My name is Chita and not Rita. Rita is Rita and not Chita. Liza hates Rita but not Chita. Why won't the Union boycott Rita? Rita - Hello, Chita. Chita - Rita! What are you doin' here? Rita - I'll be doing the movie version of "The Rink". I probably win another Oscar. You can present this... Chita - Ha-ha-ha. I'd soon I die! Rita - You'll probably will. I just came by to clarify one thing: My name is Rita and not Chita. Though I look like you, I'm not Chita. When people smoke too much pot, Chita, They think you're me and I'm not Rita. I'm a versatile actress Chita - Long as you stay on the matters. Rita - I can play any role I choose... Chita - Gypsies, Italians and black Jews! Ah-yah-yah! Rita - When I go out on a date, Chita, People save encores for great Rita. But when I see you on the stage, Chita, Looks like you put on some weight, Chita. Both - Ah-yah-yah-yah I'm gonna show you who was the first to do this and it goes like this.... [THEY ALL SPEAK SIMULTANEOUSLY] - Ay-ay-ay! Both - So, if you want to keep Who's who's straight, Hear us to settle a great debate I am the one you should ev'luate She is the one who should (???). There is Rita, and Chita, and Liza And Lisa, and Liza, and Chita, And Pia Zadora and Lisa, And Mia, and Liza, and Chita. Mia, Liza, Rita, Chita, "Rio Rita", Liza, Pia, Pita Debbie Allen... ...Ahn! And me! 12. I Ham What I Ham (I Am What I Am) - And now presenting the Tony Award Winning star of "La Cage Aux Folles", Mr. George Hearn! I ham what I ham, And when I ham, I get ovations. Though I make you gag Dressing in drag, Vents my frustrations. It's my chance To dress myself In pearls and ermine. My chance to become The world's next Ethel Merman. In pants I'm a lion, But in a dress - Hey! World! I ham what I ham. I ham what I ham And when I ham I am a phony. Who cares if I swish It's worth the dish To win a Tony. It's my part So I rant and wave like Mussolini So what if I play it Like a Tweedy Sweeny. This wig is a shame Likewise I Am That's why I ham what I ham. Yahoo! 13.

Teeny Todd (Ballad of Sweeney Todd) Attend the tale of Teeny Todd The cast is small and the staging odd. Although the musical's barely ten Somebody decided to do it again. For intrigue brought a promenade It's Teeny Todd The smaller version of Sweeney! There is no shop in London town. Except two flats that are painted brown. But think of all of the cash they'll save The physical budget impeccably shaved It's Teeny It's Teeny Todd The smaller version of Sweeney. Swing your razor low, teeny Keep it under-sized. And what's more The Sondheim score Is synthesized! Our needs are few the stage is bare We use a miniature barber chair The mug of suds and the leather strop Are tiny toy props from a tiny toyshop For cheapness we deserve a nod It's Teeny Todd The smaller version of Sweeney. Big and epic-like Sweeney was Huge and bulky the scenery was Twenty ton bridge Twenty ton barge Hal prince's version was ugly but large. Now the bigger guy Sweeney's gone And his kid brother Teeny's on Teeny is smooth Even more subtle When teeny blinks the roaches scuttle. Teeny! Attend the tale of Teeny Todd Tho' Stephen Sondheim's a demigod To bring back one of his shows today No-one can afford the original way They shrink it Like Teeny Like Teeny Todd The Sweeney version that's Tee-ny. 16.

More Miserable Sequence END OF THE PLAY At the end of the play we're another year older And we're often exhausted from playing the poor Randy Graff fell in the band And the turntable's making us dizzy Trevor Nunn yells a command And it's throwing us all in a tizzy And there's going to be hell to pay At the end of the play At the end of the play see the audience smoulder Sitting flat on their butts for three hours or more They can't wait to get back home And to read the libretto in bed To decipher whatever went on And what we said Better read your synopsis At the end of the play I DREAMED A SHOW There was a time when shows were fun And they used bright lighting And the shows weren't so long And the songs weren't so biting There was a time Then it all went wrong I dreamed a show in days gone by Where all the scenery looked so pretty I didn't sing one song then die And all my costumes weren't so gritty I did a tap-dance and I smiled And pathos wasn't overstated My lips were red, my hair was styled I didn't act so constipated But now that misery's in style It's artistic if you suffer So they tore my dress apart And the chorus girls walk lame I dreamed a show in days gone by Neil Diamond didn't sing my hit song A pretty girl they'd glorify And Act One wasn't so d---- long Come watch us grovel in the dirt Then buy a souvenir and don it Rich folks pay twenty bucks a shirt That has a starving pauper on it I dreamed a show in days gone by Where all the sets weren't piles of rubble I didn't have to belt high E And be as miserable as me BRING IT DOWN God it's high This song's too high Pity me Change the key Bring it down Bring it down It's too high It's too high Much too high EMPTY SONGS, EMPTY LYRICS If I seem to be grief stricken When this song goes on and on Empty songs with empty lyrics All about the dead and gone DO YOU HEAR THE PEOPLE SING? Do you hear the people sing? Singing the hit songs from Les Mis It is the best show of a classic Since they modernised The Wiz Better learn the songs by heart And if you don't, they'll call you dumb They'll be atop the record chart When the British come No more Gershwin, no more Kern We don't need old shows anymore We set ablaze and burn most every Stephen Sondhiem score Come join with the few who have started a musical war Do you hear the people sing? All of the new songs from Les Mis Even the great Andrew Lloyd Webber Wished the songs were really his You'll be ticketed and pinched If a La Cage song you should hum Poor Jerry Herman will be lynched When the British come Do you hear the people sing? All of the new songs from Les Mis Now with our new French Revolution We'll decapitate The Wiz Now Les Mis is here to stay Miss Saigon will leave you numb Phantom will haunt the Great White Way When the British come The British come RECITATIVE B1: Oh no Etienne(?) you're simply a confused and worried child. Let me explain the plot of the show to you so you can understand the way it's styled. Jean Valjean is a convict who is being chased by the policeman Javert who doesn't know that he is now a mayor and has adopted Cossette the little waif daughter of Fantine who dies in Act One and that's why Jean Valjean must run. B2: Ah yes B1: Then he becomes involved in a French Revolution, but not the big famous one a little later one you thought you didn't know anything about where Jean Valjean watches everyone get caught except for . . . B2: Marius B1: Yes! Marius, who loves Cosette instead of Eponine who joins the revolutionaries and runs up the barricade where she gets . . . B2: pregnant ? B1: shot. After she sings a long ballad very much like Jean Valjean who dies peacefully knowing that he has driven Javert to jump off a bridge and has significantly changed France by being an all-round nice guy and C'est Finis our story's done. How did you like that ? B2: (snores) 21.
