AmCan Sham, The Musical! - The Lyricist's Song for the Angels (who are deciding whether to invest ... more)


With Veritas mysteriously away from her truth-seeking-duties... The Lyricist sings in a voice strangely like Mandy Potamkin on an unusual day (to the tune of "Oh, What A Circus" from Evita):



Oh what's this AmCan ... T-V Show?

Argentina has run this down ...

... and found ... it turned out a ... "hurt hybrid of death."


"The Rev-o-lu-tion"
... just cannot ... grow out of ... misleading ...

... the people ... to waste so ... much time --

when they're NOT... CONSIDERED ... AT ALL.


Look for an exit! ... That's what I'd do.

Don't let Sumner ring your curtain down ...

for being a player who hasn't a clue.


The jig is up guys! ... Cutler has blown it

and may not survive ... with all of his luster intact.

This may be Lewinsky for him.


But who is the saint who could save you?

THE ONE who ... knew HOW ...TO DO THIS.

You never asked him...
So now you suffer --

The price of BULLSHIT.... Yes, that's what this is.


YOU START WITH BULLSHIT ... you can-not fly.

It's best you just stay on the ground ...

or land just as soon as you possibly can.


THERE'S NO RE-DEMP-TION ...

There's only... the price of ... the mess that ... you made

of something that had something good ...

at the HEART ... of it all.


(Sing something Spanish.
Fill in ... this part ... the ... Chorus sings.

La la la la ... La la la ... La la ...

I would bet you ... can do this... much better ... than I.

Why am I vam-ping? ...
Just waiting ... for news of ... what NEW sil-ly thing ...

the candidates are going to do ....
... -- I don't CARE anymore!)



You let down the people, Oh AmCan !

You were supposed ... to have been ... a good show.

But you're a stinker.... Because you screwed them.

You led them on... Now WE are angry.


NOW USUALLY that wouldn't matter ...

BUT NOW ... the world... is changing.

The ways of power... slip out from under

you as you sit there... Yes WE are right here...



[SOUND FADES OUT ... FOR TONIGHT]
