The Lyrics

On November 18 and 19 of 2005, I will be playing the part of "Marshall Brown" in The Nashoba Players' new dinner theatre production, "The Award Show". At the request of the director, I've been "commissioned" to write some parodies of show-tunes that we will use in this upcoming performance of "The Award Show". This particular parody will be sung by the characters Marshall Brown (the TV studio director), Eddie Panache (the Award Show Emcee), and Nick Measley (the relentless Paparazzi), as all three of them take turns boasting about how the others need them.
[ MARSHALL ]

Emcee, you think you're
Some kind of wizard
Get this, dumb Emcee,
You're just a lounge-lizard!

You think you're oozing
Charm and savoir-faire
Ed, your head only
Holds thoughts I put in there!

You're --- nothing but a sly fraud
You --- are a royal pain!

You're --- just a human i-Pod
That plays only songs from MY brain!

[ EDDIE ]

You are so jealous
When fans pursue me
Marshall, do tell us
Why nerds have no groupies?

You're geeky and you're
Soft and unstable
One small threat and you
Fold like a card table!

[ NICK ]

You --- beg to have me snap you
You --- and all of your friends!

I --- glamourize the crap you ---
--- display every day for my lens!

[ ALL ]

You're nothing
Without me!
A no-one who'd go undefined!

You wouldn't exist!
You'd never be missed!
I tell you you're out of my mind!

A show-off!
A blowhard!
You're equal parts hot air and gall
And no one would doubt me
Without me
You're nothing at all !

[ MARSHALL ]

You're in my show
I'm still your creator
All your fans know
I'm your private dic-tator!

[ EDDIE ]

You are so thick, it's
Clear, you tech-weenie,
I'm your meal ticket
Marshall, your show needs me!

[ NICK ]

When --- you are in a frenzy
I'll --- snap your ass for fame!

[ EDDIE ]

Hey, I'm a famous Emcee ---
--- and most people don't know YOUR name!

[ ALL ]

You're nothing
Without me!
Without me you'd just disappear!

Right into thin air
And no one would care
Or notice you ever were here!

A puppet!
An upstart!
A loser who's destined to fall
I'm everything you always wanted to be!
Let's deal with the issue --- you wish you were me!
You're nothing without me
Without me you're nothing --- at all !

DKTOS, but once those guys realise you've got this string to your bow JD (if they don't already) you'll be a prized casting choice - 555 (because all your stuff is!)
