Lyric

Justin;        When the register's been taken
                  And your pupils are dilatin'
                  And the audience is waitin'
                  For the magic to begin.
                  'Mid the gaze of many gazers,
                   Seeking praise from the appraisers
                   In a sea of ties & blazers
                   Are young hearts and minds to win.

                            It's not about learning. It's not about teaching.
                            It's not about setting young minds free.
                            It’s all about eloquent presentation.
                            It's all about charisma. It's all about me.
                            Because its show business, teaching is show business.
                            They get a star for their work, and that star is me.
                            Because it’s show business, teaching is show business.
                            See their Master's mastery.

Claire:        When they’ve forgotten Greek and Latin,
                   And the tedium of Matins,
Ed:             And the pool of piss they sat in,
Justin:        They will still remember me.
Claire:        When their education hist’ry
                   Is just one line in their CV,
Justin :       They will ponder still the myst’ry
                   Of my eccentricity.

Justin & Claire:    It's not about learning. It's not about teaching.
                           It's not about
Justin:                 setting young minds free.
Justin & Claire:    It’s all about eloquent presentation.
Claire:                 It's all about charisma.
Justin:                 It's all about me.
Ensemble:           Because its show business, teaching is show business.
                           They get a star for their work,
Justin:                 And that star is me.
Ensemble:           Because it’s show business, teaching is show business.
                           See their Master's mastery.

                           Because it’s show business, teaching is show business.
                           See their Master's mastery.
Justin:                 I'm their Principality. That's me.
