Changing Lives lyrics

Changing Lives

(spoken):
It's Olivia Keating of Broadway Mania and we're here for the opening night of Eleanor,
the Eleanor Roosevelt musical, starring the incomparable Dee Dee Allen and Barry Glickman

BARRY (spoken):
Let's talk process

(sung)
When I'm in character
I go insane
I stagger, I stammer, I sob
I make the audiences feel my pain
And if they don't leave depressed
Then I've not done my job

DEE DEE:
Each time I've found a role like Eleanor
The artist inside of me thrives
I put on my wig
And those prosthetic teeth
And know I'm changing lives
By the time I get tuberculosis in Act Two

BARRY:
Even the people who are dead inside

BOTH:
Will Shout
'Bravo!'
On Cue

BARRY (spoken):
The first review is in!
The New Jersey Star-Ledger

DEE DEE (spoken):
No, don't tell me
... What does it say?

BARRY (spoken):
It says we're a hit!

(sung)
We're a hit and I think we deserve it!

DEE DEE:
That's for sure

BARRY:
Also it means that this tour de force
Will not be forced to tour

DEE DEE (spoken):
To Eleanor!
May she run for eternity!

ENSEMBLE:
To Eleanor!

ALL:
Here's to a show that's so inspiring
It's almost too much to sit through
And if we're ? that might mean one more thing

BARRY:
That in ten years or so, we'll do Eleanor 2!

DEE DEE:
I can predict what the reviews will say
Before the next note has arrived
It's ground-breaking

ENSEMBLE:
Earth-Shaking

BARRY:
Life-affirming

ENSEMBLE:
Breath-taking

BARRY & DEE DEE:
Gut-wrenching

ALL:
Heart-aching

BARRY and DEE DEE:
In two words it's

ALL:
History-making

BARRY and DEE DEE:
That's why every actor strives

ALL:
For congratulation
And compensation
That comes from nightly
Changing Lives

BARRY (spoken):
It's just what we do
