2018 Public Works musical adaptation of Shakespeare's comedy
Twelfth Night the Musical - What Kind Of Man Are You Gonna Be? Lyrics

(Music & Lyrics by Shaina Taub)

Toby:
Boy, the gauntlet has been thrown
You’ve been challenged to a fight
This brother’s out for blood

Viola:
Who wants to fight me?
Why? You got the wrong guy!

Toby:
He thinks that you been talking smack
Behind his tattooed, muscled back
So now he’s gonna make you pay

Viola:
What kinda man is he anyway?

Toby:
He’s the most wanted killer in Illyria
And he is here to break your neck

Viola:
I forgot! I have a thing.
Gotta go. Rain check?

Toby:
Stop being such a girl and ask yourself

Toby & Illyrians & Feste & Illyriettes:
What kind of man are you gonna be?
What kind of man are you gonna be?
Are you gonna run, run away?
Or are you gonna save the day?
What kind of man are you gonna be?
What kind of man are you gonna be?
Are you gonna freeze or take flight?
Or you man enough to fight?
Whoa ay oh oh oh
Whoa ay oh oh oh

Whoa ay oh oh oh
Whoa ay oh oh oh

Sir Toby:
This kid is not messing around
He nearly bit my ear off

Sir Andrew (spoken):
What?!

Sir Toby:
He’s a black belt of the highest ranks

Sir Andrew:
Um
Nope
Nevermind
No thanks

Sir Toby:
It’s too late now
He’s coming soon
To have his deadly way with you
I tried to talk him down
But he threw me to the ground

Sir Andrew:
I don’t stand a chance! I don’t wanna die!

Sir Toby:
C’mon and put on your big boy pants and decide

Sir Toby & Illyrians & Feste & Illyriettes:
What kind of man are you gonna be?
What kind of man are you gonna be?
Are you gonna run, run away
Or are you gonna save the day?
What kind of man are you gonna be?
What kind of man are you gonna be?
Are you gonna freeze or take flight?
Or are you man enough to fight? Whoa ay oh oh oh
Whoa ay oh oh oh

Whoa ay oh oh oh
Whoa ay oh oh oh

Viola:
What kind of man am I gonna be?
If I fight him, they’ll find out I’m no kind of man today
But if I don’t they’ll think I’m not much of a man anyway
My brother is the one who can throw a punch
I was the wimpy kid who sat alone at lunch
But hey, if these pants have made me a lover
Maybe these gloves can make me a fighter

Viola:
They all think I’m man enough to fight
Oh disguise
Could they be right?

Sir Andrew:
Stay calm, stay calm
I miss my mom
I’m not this type of knight!

Sir Andrew & Viola:
What kind of man am I? What kind of man is he?
What kind of man am I supposed to be?

Sir Toby:
Moment of truth, my men
Push has come to shove
Say a prayer
Hold up your glove
Nowhere to run
So tell me, son

Sir Toby & Illyrians & Illyriettes:
What kind of man are you gonna be?

Viola / Sir Andrew:
I’m gonna be

Sir Toby & Illyrians & Illyriettes:
What kind of man are you gonna be?

Viola / Sir Andrew:
I’m gonna be

Sir Toby & Illyrians & Illyriettes:
What kind of man are you gonna be?
Gonna be?
Gonna be?
Gonna be?
Gonna be-
