Miss Saigon - Backstage Dreamland Lyrics

Song from Miss Saigon - 2014 West End Revival
Miss Saigon
the Musical - Overture/ Backstage at Dreamland Lyrics

GIRLS
One of us will be Miss Saigon

ENGINEER
I spread the word - it's Miss Saigon

GIGI
Who's left in town who hasn't gone?

ENGINEER
Shut up! and get your hot pants on

MIMI
Each day more GI's disappear

GIGI
Will we survive when no one's here?

ENGINEER
You girls must trust your Engineer!
I have a surprise for you
I found this new girl
From the country untouched, get her ready

GIGI
I'd give that virgin act a rest

ALL GIRLS
"You are my first American"

ENGINEER
Allez! allez! allez!
Why does it take all day?
Get your asses on stage... I'm raising cash tonight

GIRLS
One of us will be Miss Saigon

ENGINEER
They say Saigon has weeks
I say it's time to pack

GIRLS
Tonight I must be Miss Saigon

ENGINEER
Each day these little buns of theirs are worth less and less
I need a visa fast, and I'm not looking back

ENGINEER
Son of a bitch, they're here!
I can still engineer
It's like the old days, my little gamines

GIRLS
Oh sure!

ENGINEER
You know who's out here? A gang of marines!

GIRLS
They're here?

ENGINEER
We'll pick 'em clean that's what tonight's all about

GIRLS
Bullshit!

ENGINEER
One of these boys might be your ticket out

Get out of that dress!
Ah! it's my new princess
A virgin will give them a treat
Lower your eyelids and play sweet
Men pay the moon to get fresh meat

Allez! allez! allez!
Get out and do your song!
Don't make the show too long

Voila'! on stage all! welcome to...
Dreamland!!!
