Rent - La Vie Bohème B Lyrics

1996 Broadway
Rent the Musical - La Vie Bohème B Lyrics


MAUREEN (spoken)
Are we packed?

JOANNE (spoken)
Yes, and by next week I want you to be

MAUREEN (spoken)
Pookie?

JOANNE
And you should see
They've padlocked your building
And they're rioting on Avenue B
(spoken)
Benny called the cops

MAUREEN (spoken)
That fuck!

JOANNE
They don't know what they're doing
The cops are sweeping the lot
But no one's leaving
They're just sitting there mooing

ALL
Yeah!!!
To Dance!

GIRL
No way to make a living, masochism, pain, perfection
Muscle spasms, chiropractors, short careers, eating disorders!

ALL
Film!

MARK
Adventure, tedium, no family, boring locations
Dark rooms, perfect faces, egos, money, Hollywood and sleaze!

ALL
Music!

ANGEL
Food of love, emotion, mathematics, isolation
Rhythm, feeling, power, harmony, and heavy competition!

ALL
Anarchy!

COLLINS & MAUREEN
Revolution, justice, screaming for solutions
Forcing changes, risk, and danger
Making noise and making pleas!

ALL
To faggots, lezzies, dykes, cross dressers too!

MAUREEN
To me!

MARK
To me!

COLLINS & ANGEL
To me!

ALL
To you, and you and you, you and you
To people living with, living with, living with
Not dying from disease!

Let he among us without sin
Be the first to condemn
La vie Bohème
La vie Bohème
La vie Bohème

MARK (COMPANY)
Anyone out of the mainstream (La vie Bohème)
Is anyone in the mainstream? (La vie Bohème)
Anyone alive with a sex drive (La vie Bohème)
Tear down the wall, aren't we all? (La vie Bohème)
The opposite of war isn't peace...
It's creation!

ALL
Woooooooo!
La vie Bohème...
Viva la vie Bohème!
