Ragtime the Musical - Harry Houdini Master Escapist Lyrics

"Harry Houdini Master Escapist" is a song from musical Ragtime performed by Jim Corti (Harry Houdini) and Alex Strange (Edgar).

THE LITTLE BOY
Harry Houdini,
Master escapist,
Master of getting free...

HOUDINI
Holding his breath
He dances with death
As daring as he can be...
Enter the master
Saved from disaster
Making the people gape

(Explosion, audience cheering and clapping)

THE LITTLE BOY
Mother! Mother!

MOTHER
Edgar, what is it? What are you doing out of bed?
Shhh. You just had a nightmare.

THE LITTLE BOY
Something terrible is going to happen!
An explosion. People are going to die.
