VERSE
Gaug        C
Where's the orchestra?
Cm             Cm7      Cm6  G  
Wasn't this supposed to be a musical?
Bb6      Gaug    C
Here I am in the balcony
Cmaj7              Gaug              Gm7        Bbadd9
How the hell could I have missed the overture?
  Fmaj7    D7
I like the scenery
Dm7                Fm         Gaug
Even though I have absolutely no


VERSE
 C
Idea at all
Cm            Cm7     Cm6      G  
What is being said despite the dialogue
Bb6 Gaug    C
There's the leading man
    Cmaj7          Gaug           Gm7        Bbadd9
The movie star who never faced an audience
Fmaj7       D7
Where's the orchestra?


MIDDLE 8
Dm7
After all
        Ab     Bb Eb            Ebmaj7
This is my big  night on the town
   Cm7                 Gm
My introduction to the theatre crowd
    Ab                                Dm7-5
I assumed that the show would have a song
         Gaug
So I was wrong


VERSE (variation)
           C
At least I understand
Cm          Cm7 Cm6      G  
All the innuendo and the irony
Bb6  Gaug   C
And I     appreciate
    Cmaj7            Gaug       Gm7              Bbadd9
The roles the actors played, the point the author made


CODA
    Fmaj7     D7
And after the closing lines
Ebdim7 C        A7sus4     A7
  And after the curtain calls
    Bb              F
The curtain falls
   Fm               G7              [ C ]
On empty chairs ...     where's the orchestra?
