Dmaj7 B7I like the scenery
Bm7 Dm E5+Even though I have absolutely no
AIdea at all
Am Am7 Am6 E/G#What is being said despite the dialogue
G6 E5+/G# AThere's the leading man
Amaj7 E5+/G# Em7 G/AThe movie star who never faced an audience
Dmaj7 B7Where's the orchestra?
Bm7After all
F G C C/BThis is my big night on the town
Am7 EmMy introduction to the theatre crowd
F Bm7b5I assumed that the show would have a song
E5+So I was wrong
AAt least I understand
Am Am7 Am6 E/G#All the innuendo and the irony
G6 E5+/G# AAnd I appreciate
Amaj7 E5+/G# Em7 G/AThe roles the actors played, the point the author made
Dmaj7 B7(no3rd)And after the closing lines
Cdim7 A/C# F#7sus F#7 And after the curtain calls
*G D/F#The curtain falls
Dm/F E7 [A]On empty chairs ... where's the orchestra?
