Fact and Fiction Lyrics


by . From Bright Lights, Big City.


Secretary:
Gotham Magazine,
Department of Factual Verification

Clara:
Youíre terminally unpunctual

Ensemble:
Fact!

Clara:
Your work is quite dysfunctional

Ensemble:
Fact!

Clara:
Iíve had as much as I can take

Jamie:
Iím just a boy in the city, Clara
Give a boy a break

Clara:
Oh, no no no no,
I donít think so Jamie
You canít be a dreamer in an office that deals in fact
Not fiction, Iím talking, baby, fact
Not contradiction
I spoke with Mr. Depardieu

Ensemble:
Fact!

Clara:
And weíre moving the French piece
Up an issue

Ensemble:
Fact!

Clara:
I need it on my desk
Tomorrow at nine

Ensemble:
Fact!

Clara:
Can you handle it Jamie?

Jamie:
I can handle it, Clara

Secretary:
Fiction!

Jamie:
It isnít that compelling checking
Other peopleís spelling
Grammar isnít glamorous,
Dictionaries either
I wish I was in fiction
Iím so tired of waiting
Wondering where along the line
I simply stopped exhilarating
I remember coming here the first time for my interview
I thought of all the names that had been made here
I expected to leave fact and go upstairs to fiction
The inevitability of it all was so convincing
Please, sir, could you read my writing?
Open invitation,
Criticize, construction
Hereís an introduction to who I am
And who I want to be

Secretary:
Jamie, line two, Monsieur Depardieu
He demands to speak to vous
Who is this guy?
