They Don't Know Lyrics

Broadway production (2002)
Thoroughly Modern Millie the Musical - They Don't Know Lyrics

MRS. MEERS
THEY DON’T KNOW MY FLAIR FOR THE DRAMATIC
NOT A CLUE, THE TALENT I POSSESS
PRETTY GIRLS, BUT NOT MUCH IN THE ATTIC
FACE-TO-FACE WITH GENIUS
AND THEY NEVER GUESS

THEY DON’T KNOW THEY’RE STARING AT AN ARTIST
HIGHLY TRAINED TO TAKE ON ANY ROLE
SKILLFUL MIMI, AND BRILLIANT LAUNDRY CART-IST
SEEKING RETRIBUTION FOR THE LIFE THEY STOLE
I ALMOST ACTED CHEKHOV, IBSEN, SHAW, MOLIERE
I ALMOST STARRED AS PETER PAN
IMAGINE MOI MIDAIR!
I ALMOST TACKLED SHAKESPEARE
A BLUSHING JULIET
AND IF THE HOUSE WERE BIG ENOUGH
I STILL COULD PLAY HER YET

THEY DON’T KNOW I’M HOTTER NEWS THAN DUSE
HELEN HAYES AND BERNHARDT ALL IN ONE
WAIT AND SEE WHO’S STANDING
WHEN MY PLAY IS DONE

SO WELCOME ALL YE BRIGHT YOUNG LADIES
YOU’RE CHECKING IN TO HOTEL HADES
I WON’T STAND BY AND WHILE CRITICS PRAISE YA
YOU’RE GETTING SHIPPED TO SOUTHEAST ASIA
BUT THEY DON’T KNOW
THEY DON’T KNOW
SAD TO BE ALL ALONE IN THE WORLD
BUT THEY DON’T KNOW!

[Thanks to Darci Faye for lyrics]
