The Actress Hasn't Learned The Lines (You'd Like To Hear) Lyrics

Aristocrats
Thus all fairy stories end.
Only an actress would pretend
affairs of state are her latest play:
eight shows a week, two matinee.
My, how the worm begins to turn.
When will the chorus girl ever learn?
My, how the worm begins to turn.
When will the chorus girl ever learn?

Eva
The chorus girl hasn't learned the lines you'd like to hear.
She won't go scrambling over the backs of the poor to be accepted,
by making donations just large enough
to the correct charities.
She won't be president of your wonderful societies of philanthropy,
even if you asked her to be,
as you should have asked her to be.

The actress hasn't learned the lines you'd like to hear.
She won't join your clubs, she won't dance in your halls.
She won't help the hungry once a month at your tambolas -
She'll simply take control as
you disappear.

Che
Forgive my intrusion, but here in this neat little can:
I have a product to change your conception of man.
A brand new insecticide, a remarkable chemical feat,
Instantly rendering other insecticides obsolete.

Eva
Licensing slaughter of insects is hardly my mission!

Chorus
Goodnight and thank you, whoever!
We've no time for you, but one thing we do emphasize:
It's an ill wind that blows nobody good.
The news may be bad for one Argentine lad
But it's good news for Argentine flies.
