Straight is Back Lyrics

2016 An American Parody of the Broadway show Hamilton
Spamilton the Musical - Straight is Back Lyrics

JONATHAN GROFF:
You say
A dandy like me shouldn't be
In this populist play

You cry
Who am I, and as you're wondering why
I sashay going by

Why so sad?
Remember how musical theatre was cloyingly gay?
'Till the public got mad
Now Hamilton's new rearrangement has changed the fad

Straight is back
Soon you'll see
Campy musicals went out with Glee
Straight is back
Time will tell
Kinky Boots is going straight to hell

New shows come, gay shows close
Guess we've had enough of purple prose
Now the push is to straight
Like an evil foppy Disney villain, I'm designed for you to hate

Da da, don't go away
'Cause this little Beatles tune is immune from being gay
Just like Penny Lane
It will eat away your brain, like cocaine

They say with so much glitter, theatre can't go on
But Broadway will be bitter when glitz is gone

Once, drag queens were the subject
Now history is the subject
The rigid, frigid subject
The metro, het'ro subject

And now I'm
Hated
Berated, relegated
And I sound castrated

Straight is back
It's a cinch
Hedwig put away his Angry Inch
Hairspray ran out of breath
And La Cage has been revived to death

Fiddler's hot, Fun Home's not
And Falsettos is a true long shot
But when push comes to shove
I can only play a killer, not the leading man you love

If you want your play
To play to only standing room, then you'd better not be gay
Gay, gay, gay, gay, gay
Gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay - everybody!

JONATHAN GROFF and ENSEMBLE:
Gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay
Gay gay gay gay gay gay gay
Gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay

JONATHAN GROFF:
Straight is the way to play today...
