The Show Must Grow On: Act I 12/44

The Show Must Grow On: Act I 12/44 published on 10 Comments on The Show Must Grow On: Act I 12/44

To the tune of “Just Can’t Wait To Be King.”

Leachtric: Captain, I need to announce my withdrawal from the heartsword program.

Artemisia: I know you’ve been struggling, Leachtric, but —

Leachtric: It’s actually not that. Can you keep a secret?


Artemisia: All you need to do is command my secrecy, Your Majesty.

Leachtric: This is the problem!!

All of which leads into one of the show’s catchiest, toe-tappingest dance numbers.

I know you’d be a worthy Queen
You couldn’t make it worse

There’s a million things a queen should know
And I don’t know the first!
I’ve seen the kind of leadership the monarchy’s about!
I’ll serve Ceannis as a citizen — don’t let them find me out!

[bopping his head and mouthing along with the lyrics]

— and countless other stressors unforeseen!
Oh, I just couldn’t take being Queen!

“This is the problem!!” hahaha great line

And left to right:
“Im gonna be a mighty king
So enemies beware”
“Well Ive never seen a king of beasts
With quite so little hair”
“Im gonna be the main event
Like no king was before”
“Im brushing up on looking down
Im working on my roar”

Thus far a rather uninspiring thing.

If this is where the parodies are headed count me out!
If Disney come round with a C&D we shouldn’t hang about
To use the work of Walt’s a dangerous thing
When it come to lawsuits they’re the king!

Filks, I do so love filks!

Also the Tumblr widget on the lefthand side of the page seems to be broken, it’s spat out a couple dozen error messages in place of what’s supposed to be there.
