Rare Songbirds on Display Lyrics
Rare Songbirds on Display Song Lyrics
Daisy & Violet:
We're singing sweet bird songs of love
As we float and flutter above
And each little sparrow and dove
Wants to play
Our love songs are music for mating
But these little lovebirds are waiting
Will someone find us captivating prey?
Daisy, Violet, Company:
Till that day
They're songbirds on display
Two birds in flight
Delighting far above the fray
They're bringing melodies our way
Ah - what a feather spray
Rare songbirds on display
Good show, you two!
Remember when the compliments came with kisses?
People might talk
Imagine what they'd say
That's not fair
The tabloids keep trying to link you to us
Why add fuel to the fire?
They write whatever they want
God forbid they should mention you in connection with us
Violet, nothing makes me prouder than working with you
And you know it
Sometimes I do
Let's get cracking, you two
We're gonna be late for the party
What an exciting night
New York's society coming to meet you
I can't wait
Being the toast of the town
Is such a hardship for her
People point and stare
But this crowd does it with flair
And we've got beautiful gowns to wear
Wait till you see them
Take it from a cannibal
Good enough to eat
You're very sweet
But stop fussing over me
We want you to have fun
I'll see to that
So will I
All right, I'll try
That's all we ask.
Now hurry up and change, you two
Daisy and Violet leave to get ready for the party...
Does Violet seem unhappy to you?
Do you know why?
You know I'd do anything to help her
But remember when remember when you first met the girls?
And they told you their dreams?
Like it was yesterday
Well, Daisy's dream has come true
They're famous now
But Violet doesn't have a husband
She's a wonderful woman
But she is a Siamese twin
That wouldn't matter to me
I mean, it wouldn't matter to someone who loved her
Well, gentlemen, if you had any doubts,
tonight is proof that we have arrived.
We're dressed for the occasion.
Not bad for some bums from the sideshow.
Speak for yourself.
And I am so confident about our future,
that I have resigned from the Orpheum Circuit.
I can't stand to be away from our girls.
