CHICAGO: "Class" original lyrics?
Posted: 6/26/14 at 11:33pm
Hello all,
so it says on the Wikipedia page that there were different lyrics originally used for the song "Class" from Chicago, but they were changed because Fosse thought they were too racy. Does anybody know what the original lyrics were?
Thanks.

Aren't they the lyrics that are on the movie soundtrack? "Every guy is a snot/every girl is a twat." And "holy sh*t" instead of "holy crap."

Yes. In those cases, they were the original lyrics, but the whole song used to be like that.
