Stanislavsky

Stanislavsky song lyrics – performed by Danny Kaye on his radio show

Who is the world’s greatest actor?
And how did I get that way?
Who made me a genius, the greatest projector
Who ever wore a toupee?

Who made me most miserable Hamlet
The deadest Romeo who died for his bride?
Who made me most awful Dr. Jekyll?
And then made me Hyde?

Stanislavsky!

Tongue Twisters, written by: Adolph Green, Betty Comden, Roger Edens

As Moses supposes his toeses to be
That’s tongue twisters Continue reading
