I Played The Part
By Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison

I should have been an actor
Such talent have I got
I’m brilliant at pretending
I’m someone that I’m not

When I was very small
They sent me off to school
To learn to read and write
And recite the golden rule
I wasn’t very clever
Or the least bit smart
But I acted like a scholar
And I played the part

I played the part (he played the part)
To great acclaim (to great acclaim)
I got an A on every paper
And I couldn’t spell my name
I played the part (he played the part)
And that was it (he did his bit)
Nobody knew I was a lazy little git (lazy git)

When I was seventeen
They sent me off to war
They stuffed me in a parachute
And dropped me on the shore
I didn’t know a rifle
From a cherry tart
But I acted like a soldier
And I played the part

I played the part (he played the part)
I gave ‘em heck (he gave ‘em heck)
They put a stripe above my elbow
And a medal ‘round my neck
I played the part (he played the part)
And that was that (he laid ‘em flat)
Nobody knew I was a scaredy little cat (scaredy cat)

I played the part of the loyal husband
While I kept a little cutie safely hid (safely hid)
I played the part of the trusty employee
And I hadn’t the foggiest notion what I did (rotten kid)

When I have come to pass
They’ll send me to my fates
At Heaven’s pearly gates
There is where St. Peter waits
I’ve been a sneaky devil
From the very start
But I’ll act like I’m an angel
And I’ll play the part

I’ll play the part (he’ll play the part)
And knock ‘em dead (he’ll knock ‘em dead)
I’ll put a harp between my knees
And a halo ‘top my head
I’ll play the part (he’ll play the part)
And do it well (he will excel)
And I’ll be sent with the other actors straight to Hell (straight to Hell)
I’ll be sent with the other actors straight to Hell (oh, go to Hell)

You're welcome. The songs are some of my favorite things about the show and I find myself singing them at the oddest times to the chagrin of all who know me. *smiles*
