Leonard Bernstein – What A Waste Lyrics

WHAT A WASTE,
WHAT A WASTE,
WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME! GO WEST! GO HOME! CAME TO NEW YORK,
REPERTOIRE READY,
CHEKHOV’S AND SHAKESPEARE’S AND WILDE’S. AND THEIR STORIES ALL FOLLOW ONE LINE,
LIKE HIS,
LIKE HIS,
LIKE MINE! BORN IN DULUTH,
NATURAL WRITER,
PUBLISHED AT SEVEN — GENIUS TYPE —
WROTE THE SCHOOL PLAY,
WROTE THE SCHOOL PAPER,
SUMMA CUM LAUDE — ALL OF THAT TRIPE —
CAME TO NEW YORK,
GOT ON THE STAFF HERE,
THIS WAS MY CHANCE TO BE HEARD. CAME TO NEW YORK,
AIMED AT THE OPERA,
SING “RIGOLETTO” HIS WISH. NOW, THEY WATCH HER FLIPPING FLAPJACKS AT CHILDS’. LEONARD BERNSTEINWhat A Waste Lyrics
GO HOME! WHAT A WASTE,
WHAT A WASTE,
WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME! GO HOME! GIRL FROM MOBILE,
VERSATILE ACTRESS,
TRAGIC OR COMIC,
ANY OLD PLAY,
SUFFERED AND STARVED,
MET STANISLAVSKY. NOW, HE PAINTS THOSE TOOTHPASTE ADS ON THE BUS! CAME TO NEW YORK — HAD AN EXHIBIT,
ART CRITICS MADE A BIG FUSS. GO BACK WHERE YOU CAME FROM! AT THE FULTON MARKET NOW HE YELLS “FISH!”
WHAT A WASTE,
WHAT A WASTE, AH — FISH! WHAT A WASTE,
WHAT A WASTE,
WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME! THEY’RE GOING TO CONQUER THE CITY,
THEY’RE GOING TO GRAB OFF THE PULITZER PRIZE,
BUT IT’S A TERRIBLE PITY,
BECAUSE THEY’RE IN FOR A BITTER SURPRISE. MAN FROM DETROIT,
WONDERFUL ARTIST,
WENT TO PICASSO — PABLO SAID “WOW!”
SETTLED IN FRANCE,
BOUGHT HIM A BERET,
LIVED IN MONTMARTRE,
REALLY LEARNED HOW. A MILLION KIDS JUST LIKE YOU
COME TO TOWN EVERY DAY
WITH STARS IN THEIR EYES. HE SAID THE WORLD WOULD
CHEER HER SOME DAY. WELL, SINCE THEN I HAVEN’T WRITTEN A WORD. OH, WHY DID YOU EVER LEAVE OHIO? KID FROM CAPE COD,
FISHERMAN’S FAMILY,
MARVELOUS SINGER — BIG BARITONE —
RENTED HIS BOAT,
PAID FOR HIS LESSONS,
STARVED FOR HIS STUDIES,
DOWN TO THE BONE. GO WEST! WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME! GO BACK WHERE YOU CAME FROM!
