MEAN GIRLS the Musical - A Cautionary Tale Lyrics

"A Cautionary Tale" is a song from Mean Girls the Musical performed by Barrett Wilbert Weed (Janis) and Grey Henson (Damian).

JANIS:
It’s a cautionary tale of fear and lust, and pride
Based on actual events where people died

DAMIAN:
No one died
But how far would you go
To be popular and hot?
Would you resist temptation?

JANIS:
No, you would not!
Just admit it

BOTH:
Sometimes being mean is what you are
Because is easier than nice
And though mean can take you far
Maybe this will make you think twice

JANIS:
This is a cautionary tale
About corruption and betrayal!

DAMIAN:
And getting hit by a bus!

JANIS:
You can’t buy integrity at the mall and it’s not for sale

DAMIAN (spoken): Nice

JANIS (spoken): Thank you

BOTH:
This is a cautionary tale
