All the world’s a stage so let’s get ready for the show
When I came of age, I figured I would surely know
Where I fit in, / the part I play and where/
I’m supposed to go. Oh!

I know all the cues, but will I ever get my chance?
Practiced all the moves, when can I join into the dance?
I’m well rehearsed, /I know my lines why must/
I be left behind? Oh!

Waiting in the wings for my moment to shine
Waiting ‘til it’s my time to fly.

(Instrumental like first two lines of verse)
I’m well rehearsed. I know my lines
Why must I be left behind? Oh!

All the world’s a stage yes it’s theatrical and grand
Watch the leading lady falling for the leading man
Presented for your entertainment, by popular demand. Oh!

Waiting in the wings for my moment to shine
Waiting ‘til it’s my time…

bridge: They’re calling for the understudy,
Right in front of everybody
Waiting ‘til it’s my time to fly.
