alright, so i am determined to write a broadway musical called "The Other Cheek." isn't that a great name for a musical? here's a little somethin' somethin' to give you an idea.

Opening Song: The Original Cheek

(starts to the tune of The Little Mermaid song about her collection -- name?)

This is my cheek
Yes, this is my cheek
Isn't it chique?
Wouldn't you think my face is complete?
Wouldn't you think i'm the girl,
the girl with the perfect cheek?

(turns her face to reveal her other cheek)

But I'm not,
Look at this rot.
It's eaten up an entire spot

(changes to the tune of "On My Own" - Les Mis)

...on my cheek,
pretending its not there.
All alone, this cheek is all alone.
In the darkness, you can not really tell,
But everywhere i feel them stare,
That cheek is like a stranger.

(changes tune to opening song of Songs for a New World)

A new cheek, is all i want.
A new cheek, brings a new life.
A new cheek calls to my face,
Waiting there, waiting there

It's about one cheek,
That one cheek that is really rotting.
Just when you think no one can see,
You see their eyes.

And though its suddenly a stranger,
On a completely different face

(changes tune to "I Just Can't Wait to be King" - Lion King)

... oh i just can't wait for a cheek.
No one sayin' "ew, gross."
No one sayin' "what's that?"
No one havin' to see rot,
Finally gonna be hot.
It won't rot away all day,
It's gonna be replaced!!!

*this is my latest work. any critique would be appreciated.

-- written while on the metro, my inspiration

okay... colleen helped on it. but it was entirely my idea about the musical.

alex, of course you can play the cheek. infact, i'm looking for any people interested in being on broadway, because i'm positive it will make it there!

sorry, but i'm gonna have to say the phantom of the opera should be the star. Now that's a messed up cheek. How can it fail?!
