I Sing lyrics

I Sing

NICKY
I sing
Cause my future?s uncertain

HEIDI
I sing
Cause my song?s still unsung

ALAN
I?m alive and alert

PEPPER
And I pull back the curtain

CHARLIE
I sing I?m abrasive and young

ALL
I sing

NICKY
Cause my heart is still beating

ALL
I sing

HEIDI
Cause my story?s untold

CHARLIE
Who know?s where it?s leading?

ALAN
My hairline?s receding

PEPPER
I sing I don?t wanna grow old

ALL
I sing
Cause we?re barely beginning

MEN
I sing
Someone show me a sign

WOMEN
Who knows if I?m winning?
I?m in the first inning

MEN
I sing cause my life?s on the line

ALAN
But what do I do when there?s no one around
And I?m tearing my hair out and hitting the ground

CHARLIE AND NICKY
I?m ready for action
I?m always on call

CHARLIE
I?m on the attack
But my back?s to the wall

PEPPER
There?s so much to sing for
And so far to fall

ALL
Either it?s real or it?s nothing all
I sing cause I?m lonely
I sing cause I?m free
I won?t be the only one singing for me

NICKY
I rise at six and send a fax
I call the pricks at Goldman Sacs
I?m lucky if I make it out by ten
I get tickets for my bosses
And I wonder what did he pay?
So I try to cut my losses
And I auction them on eBay
Then wake up and do it all again
But I?m climbing higher
In the corporate ranking
Please let me retire
From investment banking
When will they loosen
The noose on our throats?
For my ulcer?s been growing
My pulse overflowing
I can?t call this sewing my oats

I sing
For the Protestant ethic
My wasp
Manifests destiny
The good old boy network
Will help me to get work
But who?s gonna help me break free?
I sing

CHARLIE
From Aspen in ski pants
To Paris to see France
To New York to freelance
A magazine
From Chelsea?s last pier dance
With hip-hop and queer trance
The places and faces
This fag has seen
My daddy died when I was ten
And left my half his cash
Now I tip out from my trust fund
To the bar back down at Splash

I sing
For my childhood regression
I sing
When I?m down on all fours
I?m still doing poppers
Attention all shoppers
I?m singing come take me, I?m yours
I sing

PEPPER
The shortest skirt in Riverdale
I?m such a flirt, my liver?d fail
I?m such a dirty drunk
I flunked my bachelor?s degree
My passion to cash-in got me the boot
Out of the Fashion Institute of Technology
But now they pay me by the night
To go somewhere that?s always the rage
And put on something much too tight
And shake my ass inside a cage
My life is a mess
But, I?m dressed to impress
I?m trendy
I?m bendy
I?m fun
I?m MTV?s typical motor boater
Fit apolitical club promoter
Flyer anyone?

I sing
With my Nokia cellphone
I sing
While I?m tapping the keg
I bought a new dildo
Who knows how far we?ll go?
I sing for my vibrating egg
I sing

HEIDI
I am Barbara Streisand
In the body of an elf
I never liked my thighs and
I feel bad about myself
There?s twelve unfinished screenplays
On my shelf collecting dust
I don?t wanna temp forever
No, it?s mere a max or bust
I feel like Laura Efron when I start out
Then I grab the Teflon and I stir fry my heart out
I like to cook
I love to eat
I crave domestic bliss
But no one ever told me
At my girl?s camp and the cat skill?s
There?d be year like this

I sing
For the stupid Stairmaster
I sing
For the workout at Crunch
I sing about futons
And Caesars with croutons
And snack wells with Prozac for Lunch
I sing

ALAN
We went to Vaster
Passed a class or two
Did a little Riddelin
And kid, we skid it through
I tried my hand at show biz
They said we?ll call don?t call us
So I traded in my toe shoes
For a torah and a tallus
Now I teach the Talmud
And I take what I can get
And the children of Manhattan
Learn the Hebrew alphabet

I sing
For the Carnegie Deli
I sing
For pastrami on rye
I sing for my parents in Shortlis, New Jersey
Baruch hata adonai

ALAN AND HEIDI
I sing
For my wildest obsessions

PEPPER AND CHARLIE
I sing
For the beauty in truth

MEN
I sing my confessions
Romantic depressions

WOMEN
I sing for the ideals of youth

ALAN AND HEIDI
I sing
Cause I?m still optimistic

PEPPER AND CHARLIE
I sing
I don?t know who I?ll be

ALAN
I?m not who I was
And I?m singing because
I don?t know who I am but I gotta be me

CHARLIE AND ALAN
But what do I do when there?s nobody there
And I?m throwing a fit with my fist in the air

NICKY AND PEPPER
I?m ready for something and someone to call

CHARLIE AND HEIDI
I?m losing my mind but I?m having a ball

NICKY AND ALAN
I?m singing for love and I?m ready to fall

ALL
Either it?s real or it?s nothing at all

I sing cause I?m lonely
I sing cause I?m free
I won?t be the only one singing for me

Why am I the only one who?s singing for me?

Am I the only one singing for me?
