The Lyrics

I am currently playing Dr. Lyman Hall, delegate from Georgia, in The Concord Players production of the musical "1776". I've been working on parodies for the show's songs (of course!), and I'd like to share with you one of my "1776" parodies: "Is Anybody There?" - a parody of the song "Is Anybody There?" in which John Adams, alone at night in the Congressional Chamber, meditates on his vision for the future. Here is a link to a MIDI audio file of the entire song "Is Anybody There?" : ...... http://www.hamienet.com/6618.mid ..... And here is a link to the original lyrics of "Is Anybody There?": ..... http://thespia.topcities.com/1776/1776songs.html#anybody
(The parody's basic theme is that John Adams is a Patriotic Exhibitionist who never wears anything below the waist, and who is therefore trying to get Congress to approve a Declaration of Public Nudity)


Is anybody there?
To gaze upon my hair?
Does anybody see where I pee?

They want me to quit
They say, John, pull up your tights
Still to breeches I say
Good night, forever, good night!

For I have crossed the Rubicon
Let my pants be burned behind me
Come what may
Come what may
Commitment!

The prudists all say
Our pants must stay
And we can't re-play
The Garden of Eden story

Through pan-ta-loons
Through pantaloons
I can see the shape
Of fam'ly jewels in their glory

Is anybody there?
To gaze upon my hair?
Does anybody see where I pee?

I see watersports!
I see the pageant of pantless parades!
I see men's bells swinging out!
Bells rung by clapper-balls!
I see Americans,
All Americans,
Free,
To bare it all !!!

How quiet,
How quiet the chamber is
How silent,
How silent the chamber is

Is anybody there?
To gaze upon my hair?
Does anybody see where I pee?
