Latest 'Spamalot' Lyric Change.#1
Posted: 4/12/08 at 8:34pm
...and Heather gets it the leg!
First it was Britney Spears then the lyrics were changed to include the shows Tony Award win. The last target was Posh Spice, now it has reviewed its lyrics once more.....
'My life is a mess,
I have constant PMS,
Im taking far too many pills.
They say i'm acting strange and if i don't change my ways soon,
Im going to be replaced by Heather Mills'

On Broadway there is and so far has been only one lyric change. And that was to include the show winning the Tonys.

The original lyric was

I've no grammys no rewards I've no Tony awards.

The show won the Grammy for best cast album and it won the Tony Award for best musical as well as a couple of others.

I am talking about the London production on the West End board. I didnt place this on the Broadway board for that reason.

I am almost certain that Britney Spears was taken out of all productions, including Broadway.

I saw We Will Rock You yesterday and Britney has been axed from that too, Still listed in the programme but now called Victoria Beckham

It might be in a different verse, but I'm sure lately it has been something to do with Elaine Paige? I saw it a week before Peter left and im certain it was something to do with her!

Something like
"My love life is a mess
I've got constant PMS
My career is about as hot as ice

They hate me there backstage
They say I'm Worse than Elaine Paige
They're trying to replace me with Posh Spice

With Posh Spice!!"

I know, brilliant line, when I saw it I was with a group of people who aren't genral theatre goers and I laughed my head off at that line, and after they just said, "who's Elaine Paige???"
