2018 Broadway's New Musical Comedy with Issues
THE PROM the Musical - It's Not About Me Lyrics


DEE DEE:
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’m 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...

ALL:
Emma

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

BARRY: (spoken)
Sing it, Eleanor!

DEE DEE:
Her belt
But it's not about me

MRS. GREENE: (spoken)
Get them out of here! Now!

DEE DEE:
Go on then, threaten to riot
It won’t phase me in the least
I understand furious townfolk
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

Equality
Should be this country's norm
Not Photography
Unless you Instagram it
Use #DeeTakesLocalYokelsByStorm

But it's not about

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

But it's not about me
Although I'm rich and famous
Publicity is not my final goal
You needn't be backwoods ignoramus

Join me and we'll start fighting
Could I get softer lighting?
Wait, this is not about me

ALL:
This is not about
Wait what is happening?
This is not about her
This is not about

DEE DEE (spoken):
This is all about Emma
And not about
Me
