Finale "The Wild Party" lyrics

Finale "The Wild Party"

(Distant in the background, the sound of a
A victrola playing a scratchy old record-
ing of Burrs singing)

‘Marie is tricky
Sly and sticky
Brudda, you watch out for dat gal:
She gwina lub-ya like dere’s no tomorr-ah’

(the door to the room opens and a fig-
ure steps in. It’s Burrs. In blackface)

Burrs
But come tomorrah ya gots
Plenty ‘Sarrah...’
Hot-chitza-dee!

(as if in his Vaudeville act)

Queenie
Burrs, what are you doing’ Burrs put the
gun down.

Burrs
You whore. You fuckin’ whore. You’I
Loved you! I loved ‘

How many women in the world
Say ‘Okay it’ll do’
How many many many many many many
many Women’

(Burrs focuses all of his energy on
Queenie, completely oblivious to Black,
To anything else in the entire world)

You!

Queenie
Burrs, please.

Burrs
You!

Queenie
Please don’t do this.

Burrs
You!

Queenie
Burrs please

(Black charges at Burrs. They struggle,
The gun between them)

Black ‘

Queenie/Burrs/Black
Noooooo!

(gunshot. Burrs staggers away from
Black and falls onto the bed. As the
vaudeville swirls around her, Queenie
says goodbye to Burrs, Kate and Black.)

Company
Queenie was a blonde and her age stood still
And she danced twice a day in the vaudeville
So.
So.
Now you know

A fascinating woman
As they go
Queenie wazza wazza wazza
Queenie wazza wazza wazza
Queenie wazza wazza wazza ‘
Queenie

(as the vaudeville settles, Queenie finds
herself alone)

Queenie
Queenie wazza’
Blonde
In a vaudeville show’
And she hid what she was
With a mask of snow’

This is was it is to be lost
This is what it is to be scared
This is what it is ‘
This is what it is ‘

(voices add in, as Queenie begins to
remove her makeup)

Queenie


Love;
Hurt;
Good-
Bye;
This is what it is
To live in
Light.

Company
To lose what was
And long for more
And grasp at love
And breathe in hurt
And leave the night
And say goodbye
(Queenie steps into the morning light)
