I have some rather painful news relative to the subject who's
To be beside me at the next court ball
You were the chosen one, I know, but as tradition it should go
To the unquestioned champion in the hall
And I'm convinced that splendid Frenchman can easily conquer one and all
And besting all our local henchmen
He should sit beside me at the ball


(I have so missed listening to this OBCR)

I loved you once in silence
And mis'ry was all I knew
Trying so to keep my love from showing
All the while not knowing, you loved me too

Then one day we cast away our secret longing
The raging tide we held inside would hold no more
The silence at last was broken!
We flung wide our prison door
Every joyous word of love was spoken
And now there's twice as much grief
Twice the strain for us
Twice the despair
Twice the pain for us
As we had known before
Marie: Don't be in such a hurry about that pretty little chippy in Frisco. Tony: Eh, she's a no chip!

Tra la! It's May, the lusty month of May!
That lovely month when ev'ryone goes blissfully astray
Tra la! It's here, that shocking time of year!
When tons of wicked little thoughts merrily appear


When tons of wicked little thoughts merrily appear
It's May! It's May, that gorgeous holiday
When ev'ry maiden prays that her lad will be a cad!
It's mad! It's gay, a libelous display
Those dreary vows that ev'ryone takes, ev'ryone breaks
Ev'ryone makes divine mistakes
The lusty month of May!
"All I ask of you is one thing: please don't be cynical. I hate cynicism -- it's my least favorite quality and it doesn't lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen." Conan O'Brien

The soul of a knight should be a thing remarkable,
His heart and his mind as pure as morning dew.
With a will and a self-restraint
That's the envy of ev'ry saint
He could easily work a miracle or two.
To love and desire he ought to be unsparkable,
The ways of the flesh should offer no allure.
But where in the world
Is there in the world
A man so untouched and pure?
(C'est moi!)

The seven deadly virtues, those ghastly little traps
Oh no, my liege, they were not meant for me
Those seven deadly virtues were made for other chaps
Who love a life of failure and ennui
Take courage - now there's a sport
An invitation to the state of rigor mort
And purity - a noble yen
And very restful every now and then
I find humility means to be hurt
It's not the earth the meek inherit, it's the dirt
Honesty is fatal, it should be taboo
Diligence - a fate I would hate
If charity means giving, I give it to you
And fidelity is only for your mate
You'll never find a virtue unstatusing my quo
or making my Beelzebubble burst
Let others take the high road, I will take the low
I cannot wait to rush in where angels fear to go
With all those seven deadly virtues
free and happy little me has not
been
cursed
Cheyenne Jackson tickled me. AFTER ordering SoMMS a drink but NOT tickling him, and hanging out with Girly in his dressing room (where he DIDN'T tickle her) but BEFORE we got married. To others. And then he tweeted Boobs. He also tweeted he's good friends with some chick on "The Voice" who just happens to be good friends with Tink's ex. And I'm still married. Oh, and this just in: "Pettiness, spite, malice ....Such ugly emotions... So sad." - After Eight, talking about MEEEEEEEE!!! I'm so honored! :-)

Not a lyric - but one of my favorite lines:

"The adage "blood is thicker than water" was invented by undeserving relatives."
Now living in DC. I really have to change my name on the board.

Then suddenly earth and sky were dazed by a pounding roar
And suddenly through the dawn an army began to pour
And lo, ahead the army, holding aloft his spear
Came Lancelot to save his dear Guenevere
Do you know?

I really liked him. He sounded a lot like Richard Burton during "What Do the Simple Folk Do". The show has some major revisions by Michael Learner. A lot of it I liked. Some of it I didn't, but "If Ever I Would Leave You" works wonderfully after "I Loved You Once in Silence". There's even a brief reprise where Lancelot and Guenevere sing "If Ever I Would Leave You" together and it's breathtaking. They finally have something to sing together after all these years. Matt Bogart is worth the price of admission alone so if you do go -- see it for him. If you're a Camelot purist there may just be too many changes for you, but I considered myself one, very partial to the OBC, and enjoyed the production immensely. There are a few artistic choices that don't work, but over all it was very nice. There was even a new passage at the end where Arthur talked about people one day sitting around the world, like they did at the table, questing again for right, justice and an end to war. It almost received a standing ovation and there was still two minutes of show left.

thanks Cats, I think we'll go! It sounds great.

I was not impressed with a touring company I saw in Detroit years ago with Robert Goulet as Arthur......I just wanted to scream.
