The Prom - It's Not About Me Lyrics

Performed by Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman, Andrew Rannells, Keegan-Michael Key, Kerry Washington and Ensemble.

I wanna tell the people of
Whatever this town's called
I know what’s going on here
And frankly, I'm appalled

I read three quarters of a news story
And knew I had to come
And unless I'm doing The Miracle Worker
I won’t play blind, deaf, and dumb

Listen, you bigoted monsters
Just who do you think you are?
Your prejudice and your oppression
Won't get past this Broadway star
Stealing the rights of a girl
Who is an LGBQ teen
I've been far too angry
to Google what those letters mean

But it's not about me
It's about poor


Emma, for can't you see
The ordeal she's been dealt?
So hear my plеa
Or here's your next dilеmma
How do you silence a woman
who’s known for her belt?

BARRY: (spoken)
Sing it, Eleanor!

Her belt!
But it’s not about me
Go on then, threaten to riot
It won't faze me in the least
I understand furious townsfolk
I did Beauty and The Beast

I’m no stranger to slander
So my dear, you're not alone
The Post once said
I was too old to play Eva Perón

Eva Perón!
But it is not about me
It's Emma's story, damn it
Should be this country’s norm
No photography
Unless you Instagram it
Use "hashtag Dee Dee
Takes Local Yokels By Storm"

But it's not about me

I didn't come here to make a scene
But I know how Emma's heart aches
And this is how actors intervene
With fiery songs and dance breaks

(dance break)

But it's not about me
Although I'm rich and famous
Is not my final goal

Call security

You needn't be backwoods ignoramus
Join me and we'll start fighting
Could I get softer lighting?
Wait, this is not about me!

This is not about (What is happening?!)
This is not about (What is happening?!)
This is not about (What is happening?!)

It is all about, uh, Emma
And not about
