Two Nobodies In New York Lyrics

 

Two Nobodies In New York Song Lyrics


JEFF
What if this dialogue were set to music?
What if what we’re saying could be said in a song?
HUNTER
Hey, that’s not a bad idea perhaps we could use it
Music in a musical, how can we go wrong?
BOTH
We could
Ask significant questions
We could
Get important points across
Like…
HUNTER
Are we writing for art
JEFF
And is art a springboard for fame
HUNTER
And will fame get folks to trust us
BOTH
But will they trust us
If it’s just us
Me and you
Two nobodies in New York
HUNTER
Hey, I think it’s working we’re discovering choices
Lots of things to think about when writing a show
JEFF
Yeah, creating a vehicle to showcase our voices
And I don’t mean our vocal cords, I mean what’s below
HUNTER
Uh-huh
BOTH
We could
Ask significant questions
We could
Get important points across
Like…
HUNTER
Are we writing for art
JEFF
And is art a springboard for fame
HUNTER
And will fame get us a paycheck
BOTH
But will a paycheck mean that we’re sellouts
And if we sell out
Will they yell out
Me and you
Two nobodies in New York
HUNTER
Key change
JEFF
Maybe someday we could get a theater
And if not this festival then somewhere out west
HUNTER
TV actors in our show, what could be better?
JEFF/HUNTER
Sweeter/ We could…
HUNTER
What?
JEFF
Sweeter, we’ve been over this. You know the lyric is sweeter.
HUNTER
But here’s the deal. One of them sounds like it’s two syllables
and the other sounds like it’s three syllables, so it’s
like: sweeter, the-ater. Does that rhyme?
JEFF
Yes. Sorry, Larry, from the key change. A-five, six, seven, eight!
Maybe someday we could get a theater
And if not this festival then somewhere out west
HUNTER
TV actors in our show, what could be swee-ater?
JEFF
Thanks. Great.
We could get that woman who was on Empty Nest
HUNTER
Dinah Manoff, she’s awesome!
JEFF
Yeah
HUNTER
She was in Grease
JEFF
Yeah!
BOTH
And Leader of the Pack!
We could
Ask significant questions
We could
Get important points across
Like are we writing for art
And is art a springboard for fame
And will fame get us a sitcom
And a sitcom get us on Ellen
And will Ellen get folks to like us
And if they like us
Will they mike us
Me and You
Two nobodies in New York
Nobodies in New York!
[Thanks to Jake for lyrics]
