Smash Cast - Another Op'nin', Another Show Lyrics




Another op'nin', another show
In Philly, Boston or Baltimo',
A chance for stage folks to say hello,
Another op'nin' of another show.
Another job that you hope, at last,
Will make your future forget your past,
Another pain where the ulcers grow,
Another op'nin' of another show.
Four weeks, you rehearse and rehearse,
Three weeks and it couldn't be worse,
One week, will it ever be right?
Then out o' the hat, it's that big first night!
The overture is about to start,
You cross your fingers and hold your heart,
It's curtain time and away we go!
Another op'nin',
Just another op'nin' of another show.
Another op'nin', another show
In Philly, Boston or Baltimo',
A chance for stage folks to say hello,
Another op'nin' of another show.
Another job that you hope, at last,
Will make your future forget your past,
Another pain where the ulcers grow,
Another op'nin' of another show.
Four weeks, you rehearse and rehearse,
Three weeks and it couldn't be worse,
One week, will it ever be right?
Then out o' the hat, it's that big first night!
The overture is about to start,
You cross your fingers and hold your heart,
It's curtain time and away we go!
Another op'nin',
Just another op'nin' of another show.

    Wow! Great musical arrangement, & fun for SMASH fans (or 'love-to-hate-&-watch' folks), w. the "Fade in..." theme from "Let Me Be Your Star." Also, lovely to have Christian Borle & a bit of Leslie Odom, Jr. featured. It bugged me the way the relationship between their characters just got kind of dropped in season 2.

    No question, whatever one thought of SMASH, the work done by Shaiman & Wittman & some of their musical colleagues was excellent, & amazing, given the deadline pressures they had.

  12. dmccloughanjr83

    Wish this version would be released on iTunes! It would complete my Smash collection!!!!

    You have to get the CD version only available at Target. I know ... ugh.

    So glad you shared. This was a beautiful showcase for Christian Borle. Too bad the many talented people involved in Smash never got the great show they deserved.
