Overnight Sensation

 
Side Show Soundtrack Musical, 1997
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Overnight Sensation 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!
