Message from a Nightingale lyrics

Message from a Nightingale

SONG SING

I bring a message from a nightingale

EMPEROR'S HENCHMEN

Nightingale, nightingale, nightingale song

SONG SING

I bring a message
From a nightingale

EMPEROR'S HENCHMEN

-Ong, -Ong, -Ong, -Ong
Nightingale ahhhh!

THE EMPEROR

You no bow? Emperor and American rady no see eye to eye

AMERICAN LADY

But Emperor, sometimes a different outlook can
change your point of view.

THE EMPEROR

Whaaaa?

AMERICAN LADY
Precisely.
What is it about the Asians
That fascinates Caucasians
What is it about the Asians
That's so nice
Is it the won tons? The egg rolls? The rice?
Perhaps it's Buddha or Confucius and their
excellent advice

THE EMPEROR

What is it about Caucasians
That mystifies we Asians?
What is it about Caucasians that's so odd?
They call a pretty rady a broad
They have hair upon their chest
And they only have one god?
Impossible

THE EMPEROR & AMERICAN LADY

Whaaaaa......

AMERICAN LADY

Oh Emperor, you're so light on your feet
The people of the world are varied
But differences are in the plan

THE EMPEROR

The only difference I can see
That means anything to me
Is the one between a rady and a man

AMERICAN LADY

Don't you mean lady?

THE EMPEROR

Rady.

AMERICAN LADY

Precisely
What is it about the Asians

THE EMPEROR

What is it about Caucasians

AMERICAN LADY

What makes them so astounding

THE EMPEROR

What makes them so confusing

THE EMPEROR & AMERICAN LADY

It's you

ENSEMBLE
