The Main Event Lyrics

2021 Broadway
DIANA the Musical - The Main Event Lyrics

Performed by Jeanna de Waal (Diana), Erin Davie (Camilla), Roe Hartrampf (Prince Charles) and other Cast.

CAST:
Another night with Charles' friends
I pray to God that it soon ends!
Nights like this, I envy the poor
Their parties can't possibly be such a fucking bore

We stand and chat, try to look alive
While we wait for the prince to arrive
His mistress smiles and does her bit
I wonder how she puts up with this shit

CHARLES: (spoken)
I'm here

CAMILLA: (spoken)
Darling, finally!

DIANA: (spoken)
And I'm here too. Surprise!

CAST:
Goodnight and goodbye to my discontent
I just got a ticket to the main event
It's the "Thrilla in Manila"
But with Diana and Camilla!
("Thrilla in Manila" with Camilla!)
So hold onto your hats
These cats are gonna fight
This suddenly became
Onе hell of a night
Now let's start the show
Rеady, set, here we go!
Go, go, go!

CAMILLA: (spoken)
Diana...

DIANA: (spoken)
Actually, it's "Your Royal Highness."

CHARLES to DIANA: (spoken)
You swore you wouldn't cause a scene

DIANA to CHARLES: (spoken)
You swore you wouldn't see her again

CAMILLA to DIANA: (spoken)
Perhaps you and I should go somewhere private - the basement

DIANA to CAMILLA: (spoken)
Love to!

CAST:
A rather tough night for our beloved sir
Between him and his wife
I'd put my money on her
I'd swallow my pride
To have a seat ringside!
Ringside, wanna be ringside!

CAMILLA:
Here we go, a chance to chat

DIANA:
You and me
How about that?

CAMILLA:
Tell me then
Will this take long?

DIANA:
I'll be brief
I want you gone

CAMILLA:
Here's the truth about royal life
A prince has his lover, as well as his wife
Don't you know? Must I make it clear?
I picked you out

DIANA: (spoken)
What?

CAMILLA:
And put you here

DIANA: (spoken)
No

CAMILLA:
I love Charles for who he is
For his strength and the noble life he lives
You love Charles for who he's not
Some fantasy prince
In some storybook plot

DIANA:
Oh oh oh, you're completely mad!
Such delusion and confusion
How bloody sad

CAMILLA:
You're a fool!

DIANA:
You're a fling!
You're a thing on the side!
While I'm his celebrated bride

CAMILLA:
I've been discreet
Stayed out of your way

DIANA:
You showed up to the church on my wedding day!

CAMILLA:
At least I have class

DIANA:
Well, you hide it well

BOTH:
Just so you know
I'll fight like hell!
I'll fight like hell!

DIANA:
I'll fight like...

CAMILLA:
I'll fight you

BOTH:
I'll fight like -

CHARLES:
Stop this now!
You've had your goddamn fun!
We'll take our leave
Your little stunt is done

DIANA to CAMILLA:
You thought I was a ninny
You could mold me as you like
Well the skinny on the ninny
Is she's really rather bright

I've suffered through divorce
I know how it destroys
I've had it done to me
I won't do it to my boys!

CAST:
Ladies and gentlemen
Now, this is a show
And I'm front row for the blow-by-blow!
It's the "Thrilla in Manila"
But with Diana and Camilla
("Thrilla in Manila" with Camilla!)

For years, this story
Will trip off my tongue
I was part of a party
Where the mud was flung
Who will the winner be
In a marriage of three?
Three, three, three

DIANA:
And while we're all here
Shall we clear the air?
You aided and abetted
Their entire affair!
You lent them your flats
You hid them out
Don't say you don't know
What I'm talking about!

CHARLES:
That's enough, that's enough
Now you've gone too far -

DIANA:
No it's not, no it's not!
Now call the car

CAMILLA:
That's right
Time to go

DIANA:
Grab my bag
Grab my hat
Grab my feeble little husband
(overlapping with CAST) Goodnight and cheerio!

CHARLES: (spoken)
I'll ring you

DIANA: (spoken)
No. No, he won't!

(sung)
Well, thanks for the party
We really must run
I wish we could stay
But I'd say that we're done
Now I'm leaving with my man...

(spoken) Oh my gosh, this was fun!

CAST:
Fun, fun, fun!

[Thanks to Harman for lyrics]
