Testo the music and the mirror - a chorus line

Cassie:

(Spoken) I can't get a job zach... god, you sound like all my friends - my fans. acting like I'm a star and don't know it - when the truth is I never even came close and nobody has the guts to tell me. well, it would be nice to be a star... but I'm not, I'm a dancer.



(Singing)

Give me somebody to dance for,

Give me somebody to show.

Let me wake up in the morning to find

I have somewhere exciting to go.



Zach:

So, you're going through a slow period, it happens to everyone. something will happen.



Cassie:

That's what I kept telling myself in california, and I kept telling myself that and telling myself that... well... nothing will happen. I can't act.



Zach:

What?



Cassie:

I can't act. and there I am in california supposed to be this actress. well, it didn't take me long to find out I can't act... didn't take hollywood very long either.



Zach:

You didn't work out there?



Cassie:

Oh, sure... a rotten part in a so-so film - part ended up getting cut, thank god - I was a go-go dancer in a tv movie of the week. let's see - oh, yeah - commercials, I almost got to squeeze a roll of toilet paper but I lost out in the finals. isn't' that something? seventeen years in the business and I end up flunking toilet paper squeezing? and I was a dancing band-aid - that was fun... we had an earthquake... and I got a terrific tan - and surely you must have heard about...



Zach:

I did hear you were going out with some big agent. being a bit wild, running around, carrying on...



Cassie:

Well, when you're a woman of leisure what else is there to do but get a bit wild and run around? not to mention getting fat - and going crazy - which is why I came back to new york and which is why I am here today, zach, old dear... little cat. I need a job.



(Singing)

To have something that I can believe in.

To have something to be.

Use me... choose me



Zach:

I just can't see you dancing in the chorus, cassie.



Cassie:

Why not?



Zach:

Listen, if you need some money, call my business manager.



Cassie:

Well, sure I need money. who doesn't? but I don't need a handout. I need a job. I need a job and I don't know any other way to say it. do you want me to say it again?



Zach:

No.



Cassie:

Fine, then we got that far. look, I haven't worked in two years, not really. there's nothing left for me to do. so - I'm putting myself on the line. (stepping to the line) yes I'm putting myself on your line. I don't want to wait on tables. and what I really don't want to do is teach other people how to do what I should be doing myself...



(Singing)

God, I'm a dancer,

A dancer dances!



Give me somebody to dance with.

Give me a place to fit in

Help me return to the world of living

By showing me how to begin.



Play me the music,

Give me a chance to come through.

All I ever needed was the music, and the mirror,

And the chance to dance for you.



Give me a job and you instantly get me involved.

If you give me a job,

Then the rest of the crap will get solved.

Put me to work,

You would think that by now I'm allowerd.

I'll do you proud!



Throw me a rope to grab on to.

Help me to prove that I'm strong.

Give me the chance to look forward to sayin':

"hey, listen they're playin' my song."



Play me the music.

Give me a chance to come through.

All I ever needed was the music, and the mirror,

And a chance to dance...



(Mirrors are now turned, dance section)



Play me the music.

Play me the music.

Play me the music.

Give me a chance to come through.

All I ever needed was the music, and the mirror,

And a chance to dance...



(Flying mirrors come in. dance section)
