WAR PAINT the Musical - Behind the Red Door Lyrics

"Behind the Red Door" is a song from WAR PAINT the musical performed by Christine Ebersole (Elizabeth) & Ensemble.

ARDEN GIRLS:
Enter Miss Arden’s temple to beauty
Serving your every need is our duty
May you enjoy the full day you have in store:
Behind the Red Door!

Kindly remove your coats, hats and daywear
Put on the gowns all guests of Miss A wear
Slippers with non-skid soles for the sauna floor
Behind the Red Door!

First: An icy facial massage
With famous Ardenia Tonic
For your rosacea chronic!
Might we suggest a grapefruit colonic!

Breathe a perfume of fresh floral splendor
Soft light to soothe the feminine gender
Rose petal pink with Louis Couture’s decor
Don’t you deserve a day to be pampered?
Lay back, relax, unhurried, unhampered
Nanny and cook will handle the kids while you’re
Behind the Red Door!

Choose your activities, ladies!

WOMAN (spoken):
Oh dear, oh dear- what shall I do first?

WOMAN (spoken):
I’ll try them all!

ARDEN GIRL:
Dine on glassé of cucumber glacial, what you don’t eat we’ll use for a facial

Vogue Magazine declares the cuisine top drawer!
Behind the Red Door!

Say that your fanny raises an issue
Smooth off that excess adipose tissue!
That's what the rolling gluteal press is for
Behind the Red Door!

ARDEN GIRL (spoken):
Yes! She is? On her way? Now?

ARDEN GIRLS (sung):
She's coming
She's coming
Look busy
No slumming

She's rounding the corner of East 63rd!

She's driving past Tiffany's window, I heard!

Dust off her portrait, and swiftly, dear
You know how she judges
See to those unsightly smudges

She's coming. She's coming.
She's coming. She's coming.

ELIZABETH (sung):
She's here!

ELIZABETH (spoken):
A tad too heavy on the lipstick, dear.

ARDEN GIRLS:
Behind the Red Door!

ELIZABETH:
Ardena skin tonic for that unfortunate eczema.

MR. LEWIS:
Lizzie, we have to talk.

ELIZABETH:
Not now, Mr. Lewis.

Have they had their Vienna Youth Mask?
My exclusive Vienna Youth Mask?

ARDEN GIRLS:
Not yet, Ms. Arden.

ELIZABETH:
Well, what are you waiting for?
American Beauty Roses each of you, and who am I?
Well, your devoted gardener of course!
Hook them up to the electrodes, pip pip!

(sung)
Certain reporters seeking the truth ask:
Can it be real? Your Vienna Youth Mask?
I am the proof that time isn't keeping score
Behind the red door

Hooked up to wires, as harnesses wrap you
Six hundred volts of energy zap you
Dead dormant skin cells now are a living spore
Behind the Red Door!

Name a famous Hollywood face
My Skin Food L'Orangé restarted
Wallace and Edward hoard it

WOMAN:
How much?

ELIZABETH:
Don't ask, or you can't afford it

Classic Venitian Cremé Amaretto
Take home a ten-ounce jar, and you'll get a
Sample of my new fragrance of love: L'Amor

Remember!
Since Adam's fall from grace in the garden
All thanks to Moi!

ARDEN GIRLS:
Elizabeth Arden!

ELIZABETH:
Heaven on Earth is open from nine to four
Monday through Friday

ARDEN GIRLS:
Behind the Red Door

ELIZABETH:
Refresh, replenish, renew!

ARDEN GIRLS:
Behind the Red Door

ELIZABETH:
Until tomorrow, adieu!

ALL:
Behind the Red Door!
