Razzle Dazzle Them



Razzle Dazzle Them

Nowadays
it’s still so alive in my mind

(Oh, I’m alright,

you?)

but, it’ll blow over in two weeks again
wait a while
heck, watch the wind change
right before your very eyes
two seconds later

POOF!

you go from being Roxie Hart
to Velma Kelly

don’t encourage them
just keep being who you are
shimmy across the stage,
flapper, adjust your garter,
smile pretty

that!

is

class!

somewhere, somehow
the hot-shot spin master
lawyer
will come to your defense
to give your life the
attention it deserves

if the price is right

we all have a price
Mr. Cellophane
stands there like a retard
thinking he knew you before Fame

pining, someday
you’d come home to Chicago

he kept a scrapbook
but the reporters forgot
your sin
swept up

in that face,
that “star quality”

keep on truckin’
footlights beckon
chorus line awaits
greasepaint’s fresh

everyone dabs on a little
to freshen things up
then
life goes on

even when it’s not your time
like now
it’s someone else’s time

another day on ole Broadway
the limelight
waits for you

isn't that swell?

and

All

That

Jazz!?!
