MRS. MEERS:

They don't know
My flair for the dramatic.
Not a clue,
The talent I posess.
Pretty girls,
But not much in the attic,
Face to face with genius
And they never guess.

They don't know
They're staring at an artist
Highly trained
To take on any role:
Skillful mime
And brilliant laundry-cartist
Seeking retrobution
For the life they stole.

I've almost acted Chekov,
Ibsen, Shaw, Moliere!
I almost starred as Peter Pan...
Imagine 'moi,' mid-air!
I almost tackled Shakespeare...
A blushing Juliet.
And if the house were big enough,
I still could play her yet!

They don't know
I'm hotter news than Doozer,
Helen Hayes and Bernhardt all in one!
They're on top
And I look like a loser!
Wait and see who's standing
When my play is done!

So welcome all you bright young ladies.
You're checking into
Hotel Hades!
I won't stand by while critics
Praise ya...
You're getting shipped to South East
Asia!

But they don't know...
They don't know...
Sad to be all alone in the world!
But they
Don't
Know!
