Got to see Newsies tonight, and while it wasn’t my favorite musical (I just adore the movie and didn’t love all the changes), I did really enjoy these lyrics! Stay creative folks.
“Write what you know”
so they say, all I know is I don’t know what to write
or the right way to write it.
This is big, lady, don’t screw it up,
This is not some little vaudeville I’m reviewing.
Poor little kids versus rich greedy sour pusses
Ha! It’s a cinch!
It could practically write itself–
And let’s pray it does, cause as I may have mentioned,
I have no clue what I’m doing.
Am I insane? This is what I’ve been waiting for.
Lyrics from the new Broadway version of Newsies, and the new song “Watch What Happens,” sung by the female reporter Katherine.
