She Moves in the Most Modern Ways Lyrics

2021 Broadway
DIANA the Musical - She Moves in the Most Modern Ways Lyrics

Performed by Judy Kaye (Queen Elizabeth), Erin Davie (Camilla), Holly Ann Butler (Sarah), Roe Hartrampf (Prince Charles), Anthony Murphy (Paul), André Jordan (Colin) and Cast.

QUEEN ELIZABETH II:
A monarch must give, but not too much
There's danger when one shares one's access
One's comfort, and one's touch
Talking to a child on bended knee
Her smile holds the truth
She's all the things that I cannot be

SARAH SPENCER:
She enters with style

CAMILLA:
Then moves with such ease

SARAH:
Anxious to connect

CAMILLA:
And desperate to please

ALL:
She shares all her feelings
And deflects all their praise

QUEEN ELIZABETH II:
She moves in thе most modern ways

ALL:
She moves in thе most modern ways

DIANA: (spoken)
This amazing new facility for cancer care is a true inspiration,
and I can't wait to visit each and every one of you

CHARLES: (spoken)
Just pace yourself, darling

DIANA: (spoken)
Why?

CHARLES:
No matter the cause
She moves with such skill;
She seems to know secrets
Which I never will
She stands still and listens
For what seems like days
She moves in the most modern ways

CHARLES, QUEEN ELIZABETH II, SARAH SPENCER & CAMILLA:
She moves in the most modern ways

DIANA: (spoken)
Isn't it marvelous, darling? They view me as one of them!

CHARLES: (spoken)
But the point of our existence is that we're not one of them.
We're symbols, if you will.
We represent their aspirations, so what you're doing,
Darling, it's unfortunately coming across as a bit...
Rather... common

PAUL BURRELL: (spoken)
When his royal highness feels so strongly,
I find it best to listen to him

DIANA: (spoken)
Why, When I'm just beginning to feel as if I matter?
Paul, we have the event for the Royal Ballet coming up, don't we?

PAUL BURRELL: (spoken)
Always one of your favorites

DIANA: (spoken)
Well, I'd like to be of greater help this year

PAUL BURRELL: (spoken)
You could give a speech before the performance

DIANA: (spoken)
I've given enough speeches.
Let's show them what else I can do

CAST:
We wear our fancy jewels
Escort our fancy spouse
Thanks to Princess Di
Another sold-out house:
The Royal Ballet Gala
Rich in romance

CHARLES: (spoken)
And do you know the whereabouts of my wife?

COLIN: (spoken)
I believe she's still using the facilities, sir

CHARLES: (spoken)
That's a fine way to treat her husband

CAST:
We sit here in the dark
None of us are wise
In about a minute
We're in for a surprise...

ANNOUNCER: (spoken)
And now, to conclude the Royal Ballet Christmas Gala,
please welcome one of our brightest stars...
...and the most special of guests!

PAUL BURRELL:
There she was, unconfined
Everybody lost their minds!

COLIN:
Once again, quite the scene
Unbefitting of a queen

PAUL BURRELL:
Every move was on point;
She electrified the joint!

COLIN:
Every step, every twirl
What's the matter with this girl?

CAST:
She moves in the most modern ways
(Moves in the most modern)
She moves in the most modern ways!

[Thanks to Harman for lyrics]
