Context & Lyrics


Georges, who owns La Cage aux Folles, teaches the drag queen Albin to become less flamboyant.
View Lyrics
GEORGES I want you to pick up that piece of toast like a man!
Think of this as Masculine toast and Masculine butter, Ready for spreading by a Masculine hand. Pick up that knife and make believe it's a machete. It'll take all your strength and steady nerves For hacking your way through the cherry preserves.
Think of John Wayne, and Jean Paul Belmondo. Think of the Legionnaires and Charlemagne's men. So like a stevedore you grab your cup And if God forbid that your pinky pops up, You can climb back up the mountain once again.
Have you got that?
ALBIN I think so!
GEORGES Don't think so! You're a man!
ALBIN I'm a man!
RENAUD You're a man!
ALBIN I'm a man!
MME. RENAUD You're a man!
ALBIN I said I'm a man.
MME. RENAUD Oh, Albin
GEORGES About that voice of yours. Grunt like an ape, and growl like a tiger. Give us a roaring, snorting masculine laugh!
ALBIN Ah ah ah ah ah ah!
GEORGES Try to remember that John Wayne was not soprano. Try making it rough and gruff and low.
ALBIN Ha Ha!
GEORGES Try more of John Wayne and less Brigitte Bardodt!
RENAUD Think of De Gaulle and pick up Rasputin.
MME. RENAUD Think like you're Daniel marching into the den.
GEORGES While trying to join the burly brutes, If you forget that your nylons are under your boots
GEORGES, RENAUD, MME. RENAUD, & FRANCIS You can climb back up the mountain once again...
ALL Think Ghengis Kan (Think!) and think Taras Bulba (Think!) (Think! Think! Think!) Think of Atilla's Huns and Robin Hood's men. (Hup! Hup!)
Try not to weaken or collapse; If they discover the petticoat under your chaps You can climb back up the mountain once again. Woah! Yeah!
