lyrics

You wish to be a titan of the stage?
so now vouchsafe me hearing and respect
you are part lion, prowling in his cage:
proud lord of all, stand mighty and erect!
but for the other part, most consequential
is the readiness to cast aside your fear
of being thought an ass - this is essential
The best performers? All part ass, my dear!

TITANIA & GIRLS
You wear the ass hat
build your courage up thereby,
wear the ass hat
and if all should go awry,
it's all right if you fall flat on your face,
long as you get back up, and back in the race
you wear the ass hat,
and with flying colors, you shall fly.

TITANIA
an audience can smell the stink of sour desperation
that seeps from every pore when a performer's situation
is out of their control, and they are filled with a parlous fear
that this is now the end of their illustrious career.
like if one's boyfriend comes on stage and makes an ass of himself
and by extension makes an ass of you, too
then your only recourse: you grin and bear it, perforce,
and make the best of what the bastard did to you.

You wear the ass hat
build your courage up thereby,
wear the ass hat
and if all should go awry,
it's all right if you fall flat on your face,
long as you get back up, and back in the race
you wear the ass hat,
and with flying colors, you shall fly.
