The Passionate Stage Manager to her Actor

 

Come live with me, and be my love

And we will all the pleasure prove

Your call is five long minutes past

If you’re not here we will recast.

 

And we will sit upon the boards

And shine my set of rusting swords

Go over lines you may not know

And talk of problems with the show.

 

And I will make a bed of gowns

If ever you are feeling down

Ten cups of coffee if you need

I’ll even get you the good weed.

 

That said, don’t think that I’m your maid,

I’ve got my own part to be played

Of flashing lights and sound cues too,

“Babe, I’ve got a job to do.”

 

I’m in black and you’re on the stage

We’re not really on the same page

But if these pleasures may thee move

Come live with me and be my love.

 

I know it seems we’re not the same

But I chose power, you chose fame.

If these faults they mind may move,

Then live with me and be my love.
