THE PROM the Musical - Barry Is Going to Prom Lyrics

"Barry Is Going to Prom" is a song from The Prom the Broadway musical performed by Brooks Ashmanskas as Barry.

BARRY:
I'm oddly excited
Perhaps that's because
Although it shouldn't matter
It somehow does

It's strange but I feel like I'm in a time machine
'Cause, guess what? It's like I'm suddenly seventeen!
So, book a white limo, uncork the Dom
After 29 years, I am finally going
To Prom

I once thought a night like this wasn't in the cards
Now I've got a date, a tux, and the whole nine yards
A rational person would just stay calm
Oh, since when am I rational?
Barry is going to Prom!
The Prom!

I wish I could tell that sad kid I was
To stop crying into his Cheetos
They say it gets better
Guess what? It does!
Who cares if you're a big ol' girl
Just get into that gym
And twirl!

Barry's going to the
To the freakin' prom!
Going to the prom

In showbiz, I never felt such a thrill divine
My date is a high school lesbian - still, it's fine!
And though it's been years, I might call my mom
And tell her that though it's overdue
All of my waiting is over, too
And if you're not happy, I'm over you
'Cause Barry!
Yes, Barry!
Look at me, mom!
Barry's going to
Prom!
