Hiding in the wings forever We'll take the stage, cos it's now or never And the whole thing reeks of cheap striptease The matinee idylls they all fall to their knees
It's not all first nights at all There's nothing more dull than a curtain call `get on with it'
Playing Romeo, you make your debut, ha! Rose red cheeks but your face is all blue It's not all bouquets & white crayons They're going to laugh when you look down I'm going to ask you if you want to be a chorus boy You can mime the tragedy while we all sing along
It's not all first nights at all There's nothing more dull than a curtain call `jolly good show everyone'
