SONG:  “I Much Prefer Grey

 

      Ladyship   (duet with Lord Shallow echoing, not shown)                                                          

I much prefer . . . grey. 

THAT LOVELY, SUBTLE,

MUDDLED-UP COLOR 

OF GREY.

SHOULD PEOPLE SPEAK TRUTH?

SHOULD PEOPLE SPEAK LIES?

EITHER WAY, IT’S NO, I SAY.

I MUCH PREFER GREY.

LET THEM SEE-SAW.

LET THEM HEM AND HAW.

LET THEM PREACH BLAH-BLAH-BLAH.

AND EMPIRE WILL GROW!

I MUCH PREFER GREY. 

SHOULD MEN BE MEN?

SHOULD WOMEN BE WOMEN?

THE WAY IT WAS LONG AGO? NO WAY.

I MUCH PREFER GREY.

LET MEN BE A LITTLE WOMANISH.

LET WOMEN BE A LITTLE MANNISH.

LET DIFFERENCES ALMOST VANISH.

AND EMPIRE WILL GROW!

I MUCH PREFER GREY.

SHOULD PEOPLE GUSH LOVE?

SHOULD PEOPLE BREATHE HATE?

FOR ANYTHING SO GUNG HO, I SAY NAY.

I MUCH PREFER GREY.

LET THEM LOVE AND HATE JUST A LITTLE.

LET THEM FEEL GENERALLY NON-COMMITTAL.

LET THEM COME DOWN SQUARE IN THE MIDDLE.

AND EMPIRE WILL GROW!

I MUCH PREFER GREY.
