Apology

So, my husband was a wee bit embarassed/offended by my 'tits and ass' comment in my Nudity and Harry Potter post:

So, firstly- I would like to apologize to anyone else out there in cyber space who was embarassed/offended by the aforementioned comment.

Secondly- I would like to let everyone know I was quoting a song from A Chorus Line, in case you didn't know. I should not assume that everyone out there has musical lyrics racing through their brain at all hours...

Thirdly- I would like to share the aforementioned song's lyrics with anyone who hasn't read them. Sadly, my computer is pathetic and I can't download the song for you to click on and then listen to on your own computer, but I can let you know that there is a fansite dedicated to A Chorus Line, http://www.angelfire.com/musicals/acl/ but if you don't like the lyrics to this song you probably won't like the lyrics to any of the others....

Dance:10! Looks:3 ( Val's song)
"But after a while I caught on,
I mean I saw what they were hiring.
I also swiped my dance card once after an audition.
And on a scale of ten they gave me:
For dance - 10! For looks - three.

Well![sung]Dance: ten, looks: three?
And I'm still on unemployment,
dancing for my own enjoyment
That ain't it kid, that ain't it kid
Dance: ten, looks: three
Is like to die!
Left the theatre and called the doctor
for my appointment to buy...

Tits and Ass.
Bought myself a fancy pair,
tightened up the derriere,
Did the nose with it,
all that goes with it.
Tits and Ass.
Had the bingo-bongos done,
suddenly I'm getting national tours.
Tits and Ass, won't get you jobs,
Unless they're yours!

Didn't cost a fortune neither
didn't hurt my sex-life either!
Flat and Sassy
I would get the strays and loser
beggars really can't be choosers
That ain't it kid, That ain't it kid
Fixed the chassis'
How do you do?!'
Life turned into an endless medley of
'Gee it had to be you'. Why?

Tits and Ass
Where the cupboard once was bare,
now you're knocking someones there
You have got 'em hey,
top to bottom hey!
Its a gas!
Just a dash of silicone,
shake your new maraccas and you're fine!
Tits and Ass, can change, your life

They sure changed mine[spoken]
You're all looking at my tits now aren't you? [etc]
[sung]Have it all done, honey take my word
Grab a cab come on,
see the wizard at Park and Seventy Third for

Tits and Ass
Orchestra and balcony
What they want it - what 'cha see.
Keep the best of you,
do the rest of you
Pits or class?
I have never seen it fail
Debutante or chorus girl or wife

Tits and Ass,
Yes Tits and Ass
Have changed my life

Don't worry about it. A little T & A never hurt anybody...I think?

oh, well... Thanks! I forget sometimes that my husband isn't theatre folk, and has had NO intro to all the songs and plays I'm familiar with...
The funny part of that is that half the songs he knows are just as 'bad' as the stuff I know- it's just different 'cuz he knows 'em... What you're familiar with is never as 'bad' as the stuff somebody else is familiar with... Why is that???
