Something Rotten!/Make an Omelette lyrics

Something Rotten!/Make an Omelette

Nick:
(Spoken) Alas, poor yolk, I know thee well
There's something rotten
There's something rotten

Nick & Troupe:
You can smell it
You can tell there's something rotten
Now the kingdom is shot
And it's all gone to pot
Heaven help us there is something rotten

[Thanks to Angela for lyrics]


Broadway's musical (2015)
Something Rotten the Musical - Make an Omlette Lyrics

"Make an Omlette" is a song from Something Rotten! performed by Brian d'Arcy James (Nick) and Company.

Nick (Spoken):
My father newly dead and the funeral
Boiled eggs now coldly furnished for the marriage table
Methinks another chef might have whisked our desperate eggs together as one

Will (Spoken): Pray, nephew, what dost thou mean?

Nick:
(Spoken) Well, I'll tell you
The fruit of life can't always taste like sweet persimmons
Sometimes it's hard to swallow I'm afraid
But when life has handed you some lemons
Then hand it back a mug of lemonade

My father said this to me
That he did and then he blew me
Away with wisdom simple and concise
He said, "Eggbert, life is merely what you make of it
So heed this sound advice"

You make wine from sour grapes
You got a flat pancake, hey, call it a crepe
When life gives you eggs, make an omelette
You get cola from a nut
A dirty worm makes silk from out of his butt
When life gives you eggs, make an omelette
Omelette

Nick & 3 Troupe Members:
The solution to your troubles is
Cheese and vegetables
And making bacon omelette, yeah!

Nick:
When it looks like you should quit
Find another way of looking at it

Nick & 3 Troupe Members: When life gives you eggs

3 Troupe Members:
You gotta make that om-om-om
Om-om-om
Om-om-om

Omelette
Om-om-om
Om-om-om
Om-om-om
Omelette

Omelette!

Nick (Spoken): Father!

Nostradamus:
The solution to your troubles
Right here in River City
Shipoopi, Chicago
Omelette, yeah!

When it looks like you should quit

Nostradamus & Troupe:
Find another way of looking at it
When life gives you eggs
Just a great big bowl of eggs
When life gives you eggs
You gotta make that omelette

Nick & 3 Troupe Members:
Crack, splat, psss
Crack, splat, psss
Make an omelette
Crack, splat, psss
Make an omelette

3 Troupe Members:
Make an omelette
Make an omelette
Make an omelette now

Nick (Spoken): How?

3 Troupe Members:
First melt a tablespoon of butter in a medium frying pan
Over medium heat
And sauté the onions and green pepper 'til they're tender
Add the ham pieces

Nick:
Make an omelette
Make an omelette
Make an omelette now

3 Troupe Members:
Turn off the heat
Let the omelette sit one minute in the skillet
So the inside cooks right through

Nick:
Take that egg and beat it
Take that egg and beat it
You gotta heat it and beat it, before you eat it
So beat that egg
Beat that egg
Beat that egg

Nick & 3 Troupe Members:
And that's how you make an omelette
That's how you make an omelette
That's how you make an omelette
That's how you make it

Woman:
And I am telling you
I'm not gonna be an omelette
Oh no, no, no

Nick (Spoken): We really beat that omelette

All:
You make wine from sour grapes
You got a flat pancake, just call it a crepe
When life gives you eggs, make an oh-oh-oh-omelette
Take an egg and pass on by
If your cholesterol's high, you'll probably die

When life gives you eggs
Just a great big bowl of eggs
When life gives you eggs
You gotta make that om-om-om
Om-om-om
Om-om-om
Om-om-om
For heaven's sakes!

It was white and yellow
And white and yellow
And white and yellow
And white
Make an omelette!
