Give Them What They Want LAWRENCE
Left hand, side pocket
Right arm, akimbo and relaxed
Head up, gaze steady-
Now you're ready so you
Stroll in, survey them-
Your world, they're all invited guests.
Feel out how to play them
And remember this-
You're giving them what they want,

ANDRE
Za ba zoovee

LAWRENCE
Giving them waht they want,
An adventure all their own.

LAWNRENCE/ANDRE
Giving them what they aawnt

LAWRENCE
Like they're in a movie
And never forget that what they
want is-
Half smile-

ANDRE
Demi sourire

LAWRENCE
David Niven

ANDRE
Put on a-

LAWRENCe/ANDRE
Bold countenance, both tragic and
amused.

LAWRENCE
High style

ANDRE
Ah, comme il faut!

LAWRENCE
That's a given

ANDRE
And don't forget

LAWRENCE
All I'm doing is, I'm-

LAWRENCE/ANDRE/ENSEMBLE WOMEN
Giving them waht they want

LAWRENCE/ANDRE
Doo ba zootie

LAWRENCE/ANDRE/ENSEMBLE WOMEN
Specifically what they want,

LAWRENCE
All tied up with a bo
For as the poet said-

ANDRE
Keats-

WOMEN
-"Truth is beauty"

LAWRENCE
-And that is all you really
Need to know

LENORE
Your grace!

LAWRENCE
This Lady is Lenore
She feels her life's become a bore.
You see her husband's
Ninety-four this May.
Buy hey, shes down for fifty mil,
In an addendum to his will
And whereever there's a will
There is a way.
I always say-

ALL
Give them what they want

LAWRENCE/ANDRE
Smooth and breezy

ALL
Exactly what they want

LENORE
An escape from the ennui

ALL
Give them what they want

ANDRE
Nothing cheap or cheesy.

LAWRENCE
Remember what they really want is-

ANDRE
Exhibit B:

LAWRENCE
Sophia, loaded down with lire,
Spied a grey hair in the mirror
So she made a resolution to cut
loose.

Her family fortune is obscence. Her
Dad invented Orangina
Now sit back and watch
While I turn up the juice-

ENSEMBLE
Top of the illusion,
For fantasy, the man to see is you
And so in conclusion,
All you're doing is you're-

ALL
Giving them what they want-

LENORE
Fire-

SOPIA
And passion-

ALL
Exactly what they want

ANDRE
'Til it's time to cash in-

LAWRENCE
And then you've got to leave them
wanting-

ALL
More, more, more,
More, more, more!

Give them what they want-
Give them what they want-
Give them what they want-

Some sugar in their tea.

Give them waht they want!

LAWRENCE
Here, I'll make it easy-
Rememer what they really want is-

ENSEMBLE
What we really want is...Ah-

LAWRENCE
Me.

ENSEMBLE
Mais oui!
