Soundtracks - La Vie Boheme [a] lyrics

[ANGEL] Who died? [BENNY] Our Akita [ROGER], [MARK], [ANGEL], [COLLINS] Evita [BENNY] You make fun yet I'm the one Attempting to do some good Or do you really want a neighborhood Where people piss on your stoop every night? Bohemia, Bohemia's A fallacy in your head This is Calcutta Bohemia is dead [MARK] Dearly beloved we gather here to say our goodbyes [COLLINS] & [ROGER] Dies irae dies illa Kyrie eleison Yitgadal v' yitkadash, etc. [MARK] Here she lies No one knew her worth The late great daughter of mother earth On this night when we celebrate the birth In that little town of Bethlehem We raise our gla**- you bet your a** to- La vie Boheme [ALL] La vie Boheme La vie Boheme La vie Boheme La vie Boheme [MARK] To days of inspiration Playing hookie, making something out of nothing The need to express To communicate, To going against the grain, Going insane Going mad To loving tension, no pension To more than one dimension, To starving for attention, Hating convention, hating pretension Not to mention of course, Hating dear old mom and dad To riding your bike, Midday past the three- piece suits To fruits to no absolutes To Absolut- to choice To the Village Voice To any pa**ing fad To being an us-for once-, instead of a them - [ALL] La vie Boheme La vie Boheme [MR. GREY] Ahhemm [MAUREEN] Hey Mister- she's my sister [RESTAURANT MAN] So that's five miso soup, four seaweed salad Three soy burger dinner, two tofu dog platter And one pasta with meatless balls [ROGER] Eww [COLLINS] It tastes the same [MIMI] If you close your eyes [RESTAURANT MAN] And thirteen orders of fries Is that it here? [ALL] Wine and beer! [MIMI & ANGEL] To hand-crafted beers made in local breweries To yoga, to yogurt, to rice and beans and cheese To leather, to dil*os, to curry vindaloo To huevos rancheros and Maya Angelou [MAUREEN & COLLINS] Emotion, devotion, to causing a commotion Creation, vacation [MARK] Mucho masturbation [MAUREEN & COLLINS] Compa**ion, to fashion, to pa**ion when it's new [COLLINS] To Sontag [ANGEL] To Sondheim [FOUR PEOPLE] To anything taboo [COLLINS & ROGER] Ginsberg, Dylan, Cunningham and Cage [COLLINS] Lenny Bruce [ROGER] Langston Hughes [MAUREEN] To the stage [PERSON #1] To Uta [PERSON #2] To Buddha [PERSON #3] Pablo Neruda, too [MARK & MIMI] Why Dorothy and Toto went over the rainbow To blow off Auntie Em [ALL] La vie Boheme [MR.

I get invited then ignored all night long [ROGER] I've been trying I'm not lying No one's perfect I've got baggage [MIMI] Life's too short, babe, time is flying I'm looking for baggage that goes with mine [ROGER] I should tell, you- [MIMI] I've got baggage too [ROGER] I should tell you [BOTH] Baggage - wine [OTHERS] And beer!
