The Lyrics

My lines are changing each and ev'ry day.
I just groan at this stuff I deplore.
Just some prattle in a cabaret,
With some drunkards throwing up on the floor.

I was thinking that maybe I'd go on stage.
Find a play whose lines were all the rage.
Trust some scum to get me proud scenes,
Fix my deals and soak my wage.

A stage,
A ham needs a stage.
A stage.

The parts seem hard to play,
When balding hair turns gray and old.

To win the crowd, you gotta talk real loud.
To talk real loud, you need a real large mouth.
When will I be cast again?

I tried a role, with flair, I showed those men.
I was cast as a stoolie in the pen.
I smelled and sucked at the practice.
I was told to depart, they'd try another man.

A stage,
A ham needs a stage.
A stage.

When will I be cast again?
