The Pitch, Spectacular Spectacular

Nicole Kidman


Zidler: spectacular, spectacular
No words in the vernacular
Can describe this great event
You'll be dumb with wonderment
Returns are fixed at ten percent
You must agree that's excellent
And on top of your fee

Chorus: you'll be involved artistically
So exciting
The audience will stomp and cheer
So delighting
It will run for 50 years
So exciting
The audience will stomp and cheer
So delighting
It will run for 50 years
Elephants
Bohemians
Indians
And courtesans
Acrobats
And juggling bears
Exotic girls
Fire-eaters
Musclemen
Contortionists
Intrigue, danger and romance
Electric lights machinery
And all that electricity!
So exciting
The audience will stomp and cheer
So delighting
It will run for 50 years
So exciting
The audience will stomp and cheer
So delighting
It will run for 50 years
Spectacular, spectacular
No words in the vernacular
Can describe this great event
You'll be dumb with wonderment
The hills are alive
With the sound of music
So exciting
The audience will stomp and cheer
So delighting
It will run for 50 years
So exciting
The audience will stomp and cheer
So delighting
It will run for 50 years
The courtesan and sitarman
Are pulled apart by an evil plan
But in the end, she ears his song
And their love is just to strong

Duca: it's a little bit funny this feeling inside


Chorus: so exciting
The audience will stomp and cheer
So delighting
It will run for 50 years

Christian: the sitar player's secret song
Helps them flee the evil one
Though the tyrant rent and rails
It is all to no avail

Zidler (parlato): i am the evil maharajah! you will not escape!

Satine (parlato): oh, harold, no one could play him like you could

Zidler (parlato): no one will

Chorus: so exciting, we'll make them laugh
We'll make them cry! so delighting…

Duca (parlato): and in the end should someone die?

Chorus: so exciting
The audience will stomp and cheer
So delighting
It will run for 50 years!

Duca: generally i like it
