Opening night

Opening Night, Oh what a fright!
Getting ready to go on...rehearsing frantically with Don
My mother and sister are coming tonight!
I'm hoping everything will turn out just right
The whole cast has been working so hard
For our few minutes of fame, sometimes it seems so lame
And I keep doing this year after year
To prove I can face my fear
I act in front of an audience that feels like they will eat me
But they don't, they just applaud politely
Strange thing, this acting world
I stick with it, because it's what drives me
to be who I am ever so rightly
