Six the Musical - Ex-Wives Lyrics


Divorced
Beheaded
Died
Divorced
Beheaded
Survived
And tonight we are... Live!

Listen up let me tell you a story
A story that you think you've heard before
We know you know our names and our fame and our faces
Know all about the glories and the disgraces
I'm done 'cause all this time, I've been just one word in a stupid rhyme
So I picked up a pen and a microphone
Histories about to get overthrown.

Divorced
Beheaded
Died
Divorced
Beheaded
Survived
But just for you tonight
We're divorced, beheaded, live

Welcome to the show to the historemix
Switching up the flow as we add the prefix
Everybody knows that we used to be six wives
Raising up the roof 'till we hit the ceiling
Get ready for the truth that we'll be revealing
Everybody knows that we used to be six wives
But now we're...
Ex-wives.

All you ever hear and read about
Is our ex, and the way it ended
But a pair doesn't beat a royal flush
You're gonna find out how we got unfriended.
Tonight, we're gonna do ourselves justice, 'cause we're taking you to court.
And every Tudor rose has it's thorns
and you're gonna here 'em live, in consort.

Divorced
Beheaded
Died
Divorced
Beheaded
Survived
But just for you tonight
We're divorced, beheaded, live

Welcome to the show to the historemix
Switching up the flow as we add the prefix
Everybody knows that we used to be six wives
Dancing to the beat, 'till the break of day
Once we're done, we'll start again, like it's the renaissance
Everybody knows that we used to be six wives
But now we're...
Ex-wives

Divorced
My name is Catherine of Aragon
Was married 24 years,
I'm a paragon, of royalty
My loyalty is to the Vatican
So if you try to dump me, you won't try that again.

Beheaded
I'm that Boleyn girl, and I'm up next see
I broke England from the church
Yeah, I'm that sexy
Why did I lose my head?
Well my sleeves may be green but my lipstick's red

Died
Jane Seymour the only one he truly loved
Rude!
When my son was newly born, I died
But I'm not what I seem or am I
Stick around and you'll suddenly see more.

Divorced
Ich bin Anna of Cleves, Ja?
When he saw my portrait he was like, Ja
But I didn't look as good as I did in my pic
Funny how we all discus that but never Henry's little...

Prick up your ears I'm the Katherine, who lost her head
Beheaded
For my promiscuity outside of wed
Lock up your husbands
Lock up your sons
K-Howard is here and the fun's begun

Survived
Five down I'm the final wife
I saw him to the end of his life
I'm the survivor, Catherine Parr
I bet you wanna know how I got this far
I said, I bet you wanna know how we got this far
Do you wanna know how we got this far then...

Welcome to the show to the historemix
Switching up the flow as we add the prefix
Everybody knows that we used to be six wives
Get your hands up get this party buzzing
You wanna queen bee well there's half a dozen
Everybody knows that we used to be six wives
But now we're ex-wives

One, two, three, four, five...
Six.
