ugh

i had to use "ugh" as the title cause i've already
used "blah."

i went to see chicago on friday night with my sister. in a
way i was annoyed, cause the only reason she asked me to
come was because all of her friends had other plans, so i
was sort of a last resort type of thing. but it was ok, it
was kinda fun. we saw chicago on broadway in nyc, so we
wanted to see how accurate the movie would be. it was
actually really similar, it was good.
so i went out and bought the soundtrack today, since i knew
all the songs already anyway. this is a song from chicago,
and everytime i listen to it i think how awful it would be
to feel like this.


MISTER CELLOPHANE

If someone stood up in a crowd
And raised his voice up way out loud
And waved his arm
And shook his leg
You'd notice him

If someone in a movie show
Yelled "Fire! In the second row!
This whole place is a powder keg!"
You'd notice him

And even without clucking like a hen
Everyone gets noticed, now and then,
Unless, of course, that personage should be
Invisisble, inconsequential me!

Cellophane
Mister cellophane
Should have been my name
Mister cellophane
'cause you can look right through me
Walk right by me
And never know I'm there!

I tell ya
Cellophane
Mister cellophane
Should have been my name
Mister cellophane
'cause you can look right through me
walk right by me
And never know I'm there. . .

Suppose you was a little cat
Residin' in a person's flat
Who fed you fish and scratched your
ears?
You'd notice him

Supoose you was a woman wed
And sleepin' in a double bed
beside a man for seven years
You'd notice hime

A human being's made of more than air
With all that bulk , you're bound to see
him there
Unless that human bein' next to you
Is unimpressive, undistingueshed
You know who. . .

Should have been my name
Mister cellophane
'cause you can look right through me
Walk right by me
And never know I'im there
I tell ya
Cellophane
Mister cellophane
Should have been my name
Mister cellophane
'cause you can look right through me
Walk right by me
And never know I'm there
Never even know I'm there

of course this song is in the midst of a humorous plot-
line, so it's only meant to be momentarily depressing, but
God wouldn't it be awful to be so alone that you feel like
no one even knows you're around most of the time? i'm so
thankful i've got good friends who know i'm there!

and then this song is totally true. it was written for this
muscial, which is set in 1933, but it still applies, i
think.


CLASS

The whole world's gone low-brow. Thing's ain't what
they used to be.

Whatever happened to fair dealing?
And pure ethics
And nice manners?
Why is it everyone now os a pain in the ass?
Whatever happened to class?

Class.
Whatever happened to, "Please, may I?"
And, "Yes, thank you?"
And, "How charming?"
Now, every son of a bitch is a snake in the grass
Whatever happened to class?

Class!
Ah, there ain't no gentlemen
To open up the doors
There ain't no ladies now,
There's only pigs and whores
And even kids'll knock ya down
So's they can pass
Nobody's got no class!

Whatever happened to old values?

And fine morals?

And good breeding?

Now, no one even says "oops" when they're
Passing their gas
Whatevcer happened to class?
Class

Ah, there ain't no gentlemen
That's fit for any use
And any girl'd touch your privates
For a deuce

And even kids'll kick your shins and give you sass
And even kids'll kick your shins and give you sass
Nobody's got no class!

All you ready about today is rape and theft
Jesus Christ, ain't there no decency left?
Nobody's got no class!

Everybody you watch
has got his brains in his crotch

Holy shit
Holy shit
What a shame
What a shame
What became of class?


and then this one i really like, i dunno why but its really
pretty and i like the lyrcis.


NOWADAYS

(spoken)
...Gone, it's all gone.

(Singing)
It's good, isn't it?
Grand, isn't it?
Great, isn't it?
Swell, isn't it?
Fun, isn't it?
Nowadays

There's men, everywhere
Jazz, everywhere
Booze, everywhere
Life! everywhere
Joy, everywhere
Nowadays

You can like the life you're livin'
You can live the life you like
You can even marry Harry
But mess around with Ike
And that's
Good, isn't it?
Grand, isn't it?
Great, isn't it?
Swell, isn't it?
Fun, isn't it...

You can like the life you're livin'
You can live the life you like
You can even marry Harry
But mess around with Ike
And that's
Good, isn't it?
Grand, isn't it?
Great, isn't it?
Swell, isn't it?
Fun, isn't it?
But nothing stays

In fifty years or so
It's gonna change, you know
But, oh, it's heaven
Nowadays

ok anyway, gotta go, see ya'll bright and early at school
tomorrow!!!
