Overnight Sensation

 

Overnight Sensation Song Lyrics


Terry:
Thank you, my friends
From the fourth estate
For coming tonight
Reporter:
This better be good
Because vaudeville is fading
Reporter:
Our readers have more interest
In pictures than talk
Reporter:
Give the man a chance, guys
He always comes through
Reporter:
His stories are great
And some of them are true
Terry:
Have I ever lied to you?
All Reporters:
Well, maybe not lied
Exaggerated here and there
Terry:
I'm giving you the chance to jump the gun
And run this story in your publications
Of these double duty sensations
Reporter:
Double Duty?
Reporter:
What the hell are they?
Terry:
They are Daisy and Violet Hilton
The most talented, lovely
And charming of heroines
Who happen to be Siamese twins
Reporter:
Siamese twins?
Reporter:
Terry, have you sunk so low?
Reporter:
You need clients from the freak show
Terry:
No, no, no!
My clients will be
An overnight sensation
Wait till you see them on stage
Wait till your doubt
Turns into fascination
Their story will leap off the page
You'll engage
In manic speculation
About this overnight sensation
The reporters leave and the twins are in the middle of a photo shoot...
Buddy:
Violet, don't be afraid of the camera
Just relax
Violet:
I don't know how
Buddy:
Look into the camera
Like you're looking in the eyes
Of the one you love
Daisy:
That shouldn't be too hard
Violet:
Watch it, Daisy
Daisy:
I love the camera
I feel like a movie star
What do you think, Terry?
Could I be a goddess of the silver screen?
Terry:
After tonight, the world's your oyster
You're gonna be an overnight sensation
I brought the press and their primed
Talk of the town
And then talk of the nation
After the hurdles we've climbed
We have timed
This evening's presentation
To make on overnight sensation
Buddy:
And after your act tonight
When your interview's through
We've got a surprise
A room with a view
Terry:
To host our triumphant two
The finest hotel
Buddy:
It'll be swell
Like you
Terry:
You're gonna be an overnight
Buddy:
Overnight
Buddy & Terry:
You're gonna be an overnight sensation
Buddy:
See you out there!
