It's Not About Me - lyrics

Show song Facebook

I wanna tell the people of
Whatever this town's called
I know what’s going on here
And frankly, I'm appalled
I read three quarters of a news story
And knew I had to come
And unless I am doing The Miracle Worker
I won’t play blind, deaf, and dumb
Listen, you bigoted monsters
Just who do you think you are?
Your prejudice and your oppression
Won't get past this Broadway star
Stealing the rights of a girl
Who is an LGBQ teen
I've been far too angry to Google
what those letters mean
But it's not about me
It's about poor
Emma!
Emma, for can't you see
The raw deal she's been dealt?
So hear my plea
Or here's your next dilemma
How do you silence a woman who’s known for her belt?
Sing it, Eleanor!
Her belt!
But it’s not about me
Go on then, threaten to riot
It won't faze me in the least
I understand furious townsfolk
I did Beauty and the Beast
I’m no stranger to slander
So my dear, you're not alone
The Post once said
I was too old to play Eva Perón
Eva Perón!
But it is not about me
It's Emma's story, damn it
Equality
Should be this country’s norm
No photography
Unless you Instagram it
Use "hashtag Dee Dee Takes Local Yokels By Storm"
But it's not about me
I didn't come here to make a scene
But I know how Emma's heart aches
And this is how actors intervene
With fiery songs and dance breaks
But it's not about me
Although I'm rich and famous
Publicity
Is not my final goal (Call security)
You needn't be so backwoods ignoramus
Join me and we'll start fighting
Could I get softer lighting?
Wait, this is not about me!
This is not about (What is happening?!)
This is not about (What is happening?!)
This is not about (What is happening?!)
It is all about, uh, Emma
And not about me
