Two Planks and a Passion

I saw the artist
I met the actress
it was magic electric
I played the walk on
to the young ingénue
I read as man number 2
to be
close to you

My mouth was frozen
I lost projection
the wall was broken
the world was watching
I begged for mercy
one simple cue
I took this part of the fool
to be
close to you

lights fade
they dim the coloured halls of fashion
lights fade
I'll carry out this charade
with my two planks and this passion

They’ll be congressmen and concubines
sharing the same ride
they’ll be lined up through Manhattan
to the Upper West Side
you’ll be holding down Ophelia
with roses at your feet
you’re going to turn this storied avenue
into your own little street

But you’ve got to pay the freight
so you paint your pretty face
for the lunatics and the politics
it’s Julliard around this place
pour me another one baby
and let me enjoy the view
I’m only playing good time Charlie
to be
close to you

lights fade
lights fade
I’ll carry out this charade
with my two planks and this passion

I saw the artist
I met the actress
