"Academy Award Performance" as written by and Ronald D Mael....
Play the shark,
Play the bride,
Joan of Arc,
Mrs. Hyde.
You're a girl with a thousand faces to choose from, do one.
Do the saint,
Do the waif,
Do the child,
That was great.
Great performances only come with some inspiration.

[Chorus]
Oh, what a great performance.
What a convincing performance,
An Academy Award performance.
Well produced,
Clever lines,
Well rehearsed,
Well defined.
There's a goldmine in what you do, but of course you know that.
That's not bad,
Nor is that,
Very good,
So was that.
On behalf of the guys you've known, here's your golden trophy.

[Chorus]

Play the scene
Naturelle,
Drop the lights,
Drop the towel.
No director can tell you what you should do, you'll do it.
What panache,
Oh, what style.
Pack the house,
Pack the aisles.
Everyone's in the dark when you're in the room, those rumors.
