A New Verse For My Theme Song!
Yes, things happen very quickly here at La Daily Musto.
Music man Michael Penny just alerted me to a whole verse I missed out on -- one where I actually get to sing, in counterpart with "the boys."
It's very Billy Flynn in Chicago, but with an expectedly campy touch.
If you want to know what's hapening in Manhattan and beyond If you're curious about the hoi polloi and demimonde There's adventure waiting for you when I wave my magic wand That's what I'm here for! Who is who and who is not and who's a smash and who's a flop Just what's hot and what is not and who's a bottom or a top News from all around the world and from my mother's beauty shoppe That's what I'm here for!
I'm here to keep an eye on things To spy on thing To pry on things I want to know the why on things Get high on things Throw pie on things You can count on my opinions, be it caviar or Korn Be it Olbermann or Coulter, be it poetry or porn Be it music or cacophony, I gotta blow this horn That's what I'm here for!
MUSTO'S BOYS He's here to keep an eye on things To spy on things
MUSTO To try on things
MUSTO'S BOYS He wants to know the why on things Get high on things
MUSTO Suck dry on things
MUSTO'S BOYS We can't get enough of all the stuff, the fluff that he reports!
MUSTO Well, it's just my public duty as was ordered by the courts It's my duty to distinguish beauty marks from merely warts That's what I'm here for!
