The Grinning Man the musical - Born Broken Lyrics

Dirry-Moir:
I have never seen a face like this
Josiana it's a thing you musn't miss
A creature carved from burning hell with heaven in his eyes
The uglist most brutal and most delicate surprise

I promise you this man has changed my world
He makes me want to giggle like a river full of pearls
A miracle, an angel with a multilated cheek
I promise you my love he is the greatest ever freak

Josiana:
I love it when you jump about like this
Where is this thing that's given you such bliss
I'd like to come and see it but to tell the truth I'm torn
To see you jumping up and down has given me the horn

Dirry-Moir:
Not right now
First you must come with me and see what I've found

Josiana:
It's not like you to pass up on a kiss

Dirry-Moir:
But I've really never seen a face like this
screaming skin, a devils grin, a lipless nest of teeth
And what's more a story that will make you weep with grief

Josiana:
Alright tell me

Dirry-Moir:
In the first bit there's a puppet of a child

Josiana:
Oh fudge off

Dirry-Moir:
No no trust me by the end it drives you absolutely wild
And inbetween a love affair that's beautiful and true
But more ugly and erotic than a visit to the zoo

Josiana:
Oh brother mine
Concentrate and tell me what has blown your mind

Dirry-Moir (spoken):
At first it makes you shudder with the shock
And then every pain you've ever felt starts screaming in the pit of your soul
It flies into the air through your mouth, your eyes, your hands
And then you forget who you are entirely and you are utterly lost

(sung)
And then with sudden clarity you're him and he is you
And then you see that all the people around you feel that too
And then almighty laughter splits the silence like a knife
A shout of triamph from the heart, the pure laughter of life

Josiana:
Oh brother this is what I've waited for
Oh come it sounds much better than a wriggle on the floor

Dirry-Moir:
Then lets get down to the fair and see him while he is still here
The talent scouts might snap him up and then he'll disappear

Dirry-Moir:
A cherub with a really rather ghastly homemade grin
Josiana: You're my treasure
As if his teeth were razor sharp and bursting through the skin
Josiana: Built for pleasure
He'll reach into the heart of you and pull your soul right through you
Josiana: Made to measure
That's why I'm jumping up and down and singing hallelujah
Josiana: For our (inaudiable)

Dirry-Moir & Josiana:
In all my days I have never smiled like I smiled today
