The stage is set, the house lights are dimmed.
The spot light is on me, and the play begins.
No cue cards, please, I know my lines too well.
As usual my audience falls under my spell!
I captivate and scintillate, I am a sensation!
Three cheers for me, I deserve an ovation.
My performance is flawless, as anyone can see.
Alas! I've played the part so long and so well,
Everyone thinks it's just me, being me!
